Desk

Do you remember this lovely buffet I refinished back in 2017? Read up on her at https://secondchancecharms.com/2017/12/14/buffet-3/

My client wanted her desk to match the buffet since it’s going in the same room. Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and lightly glazed in Turkish Coffee. The desk top stained in Minwax Early American.

Recent Highlights October

I forgot to share my most recent projects! Which one was your favorite? Five inventory pieces sold within hours of posting on Facebook! And two beautiful custom pieces were refinished. If you missed out on any of these debuts you can always read all about them, here on the Blog!

Rustic Wooden Desk

When grandpa builds a desk, you know it was done right! My clients grandfather built this desk over 40 years ago. When my client got her hands on it she brought this gem to me to be given a new look!

Refinished in Sher-Wood Dark Oak stain. She wanted a rustic technique done on this desk for her farmhouse charmed home, and that’s exactly what I did. Original pulls revamped in Bronze keeping this fellow original in honor of her grandfather.

Kidney-Shaped Desk

I was asked to donate a piece of furniture in an auction to help raise money for a family who recently lost their mother. All proceeds will go to the West Valley Hope Women’s Center to distribute to the family in this hard time.

A lovely kidney-shaped single pedestal desk, can be used as a vanity. Refinished in Sherwin-Williams White Flower and distressed for a perfect farmhouse look. Glazed in grey with a faux grey stain top. All original hardware revamped in bronze. Starting bid at $189.00. Click over to the Auction to place your bid, auction ends September 4th at 8pm Arizona time.

Double Pedestal Desk

I needed color in my life, and I needed it fast! With summer at an end and school has begun I still think about our vacation to California and the gorgeous beaches. Using the ocean as an inspiration I wanted to do something special with one of my inventory pieces.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Honeycomb, Freshwater and Rainstorm using a blending technique. Glazed in black for a deep vintage look. Original hardware revamped in gold and glazed in black.

Craft Desk

One of the first things I ask of my clients who reach out to me about refinishing a piece of furniture for them is “send me your inspirational photos!”. I LOVE that you love my work and want my style in you home but I also want to know what LOOK you are trying to achieve. Visual aids help us both! So I received a few pictures from a client wanting to do what she saw on Pinterest (who among us has not?!).

Here is her inspirational photo of what she wanted accomplished:

She received this table for FREE from a fellow refinisher and friend of mine. We cut the table in half to get started! I have been wanting to do one of these for quite some time! My client will use brackets to attach the back end of the table to her wall.

Refinished in a custom color that matches a hutch she had finished. A creamy white. Stained the top in a Dark Walnut.
