Antique Secretary Desk

This little antique secretary desk belonged to my clients grandfather. She had fond memories of him sitting there doing his work when she was a child. My client aquired this desk some years ago and wanted to have it match with her master bedroom furniture.

Using this piece for a vanity she decided it needed to be a lovely artistic statement. Family heirlooms are my favorite!

My client matched her colors using Behr Paints color swatches and I had Sherwin-Williams color match those swatches in the products that I use. Refinished in Gem Silica, Honey Tea and Roasted Squash. The original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze. I refinished the inside of the desk in Gem Silica for a surprise POP of color. Using Honey Tea and Roasted Squash I did a blunt blending in a horizontal line that matches her bedroom furniture. Distressed the entire piece to help give a finish blend as well as tie this piece in with the other pieces this little lovie will be sharing space with.

Farmhouse Nightstands by Bassett Furniture

I found these nightstands and they happen to match a dresser that I refinished back in August 2019. I reached out to my client who purchase the dresser to give her first dibs!

She was just as excited as I was and wanted them to match! Click here to view the dresser: https://secondchancecharms.com/2019/08/19/farmhouse-dresser-by-bassett-furniture/

Family heirlooms are my jam! I say this often, and I don’t get tired of saying it over and over again; I KNOW how important these pieces are to you and your family. So not only do I take extra care in these family pieces, but I do pride myself on making them last for more generations to come.

My client wanted me to do a finish that would match an existing piece in her home that will share the space with her mothers hutch. She kept all glass shelves at her home along with the glass decorative door inserts. Check out the before picture to get an idea of what this piece will look like with those lovely add on’s installed back on!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Pure White and distressed heavily. I went into certain spots and did a white wash to lessen the wood showing through. Im excited for this piece and to do more techniques like it in the future! Hardware is left original and cleaned up.

Butcher Block Island

This is an exciting project that I was able to do for an existing client! I NOW have the ability to cut and bend metal and I made a shelf for this piece using two machines and my fathers help! First cutting the metal to size and blending the sides for a clean flush look!

 

I already have a few projects I plan on making, I can’t wait to show you!

Refinished this family heirloom butcher blocker kitchen island in Sherwin-Williams Secure Blue and distressed. Revamped the wicker sides in white to match the powder coated white metal shelf. Cleaned and revamped the casters in black. I left the butcher block bare wood and I was told my client has already done a few coats of oil on it, getting ready for its use in the kitchen.
