Octagon End Tables

I had these awesome octagon end tables over In The Studio ready to be customized and a returning client picked them up.

She wanted a pop of color in her family room and I am so excited for her! Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Cloudburst and glazed in Web Gray. Original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Antique Dining Table

Next up for this client is her dining table. You recall the buffet, hutch and chairs? I still have 2 more chairs to complete but at least I feel like we are getting somewhere with her dining area makeover! Slowly but surely!

This gorgeous set has two leafs that was also refinished, but wasn’t set up when we took pictures in her home. This table was too massive for me to move into my studio for staging, but seeing it all together with the other pieces in my clients home made me smile nonetheless!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. The top is stained in Minwax Weathered Teak.

Three more custom chairs finished! Two more to go.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. My client picked out a cream and grey damask fabric from Joanns Fabric Store. Finally adding a dark grey cord to match and to finish them off!

Buffet

“Oh my gosh! It’s so beautiful. I can’t believe I contemplated getting rid of it and buying a new piece for my space.”

Really in love with this gal! My client had a vision and although she didn’t quite push me out of my comfort zone, I found a challenge worth the reward.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Anonymous and glazed in one shade darker using Porpoise. (The challenge in glazing one shade darker was I couldn’t tell how much of the glaze I was applying and taking off. When paint is wet its lighter. So during the glazing process I felt like I was reapplying the same base color. Talk about nervousness!) The top is stained using Varathane Wood Stain in Weathered Oak. The original hardware is cleaned up, however, the two long plates were more gold. In order to match them to the pulls I sprayed the two plates in Oil Rubbed Bronze and wet sanded them to bring a little gold out to match the existing pulls.

Nightstands

Last year I refinished a bedroom set for a client in a white lightly distressed in the lines, with stained tops. Another customer saw them and said “Hey!!! I have that exact set and I love them done in white!”

My new customer wanted the same look only more distressing! Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Alabaster and heavily distressed. Tops stained in Minwax Jacobean. Original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Hutch

A few weeks back I refinished a chair and a buffet that matches this hutch. My client has many more chairs and a dining table that I will be work on soon. Meep!!!

Refinishing these custom pieces in my clients style is so satisfying. I love her taste and can’t wait to see her dining room all set up once completed!

Using the color Software by Sherwin-Williams and glazing in Cyberspace. I stained the top in Weathered Teak. Added new hardware that my client purchased, Crystal Knobs matched with silver plates changes this piece to the better! Like most of my customs, I will have my clients keep the glass at home, in this case, two glass doors and glass shelves are at home waiting to be put back in.
