Retro Dresser and Nightstand

Last month I finished a retro nightstand, read here to view him: Retro Nightstand. I got my hands on the nightstands’ twin brother and his dresser. These pieces are such delicate items as their tops are a thin sheet of veneer. My client wanted them stained with a solid finished base. Sanding these tops are not only challenging but time consuming. One wrong move can destroy them. They have such a gorgeous design to them that needed to be showcased where the previous stain was too dark and hid their beauty.

Refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Black Bean and tops are stained in Armoire Hickory. Original hardware cleaned up. Stay tuned in for the matching mirror and armoire!

Recent Highlights June

Look at these lovely custom pieces! All unique and gorgeous! I got to finished a clients dining room, as well as start on a master suite with another charmer. Sold an inventory piece for customization and refinished two little garden chairs for a returning client. Thank you, thank you for all your support!!

Tv Entertainment Center

Turning a dresser into your tv unit never gets old! I found this piece and within an hour it was sold to one of my followers on Facebook for customization.

The friend I bought this from had taken the middle drawers out and painted it black. She used it for some time and reached out to me to see if I wanted to purchase it as she had got something new.

I added wood slates on the shelves to make them sturdier. As well as walls inside to finalize the piece. I moved the hardware holes to the middle knowing that this piece needed something heavy to make this piece unforgettable!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Mountain Stream and heavily glazed in a cream. We updated the hardware using Hobby Lobby brown metal knobs for a rustic chic look.

Serpentine Dresser

I have been wanting to do a bending technique for a while now on one of my pieces of furniture. However, I felt like I needed to have a certain piece to do it- Something that has detail and curves. It could be because all my inspiration out there would have the perfect old vintage pieces that I absolutely was obsessing over. I finally found this little dresser and thought its perfect!

An antique serpentine front dresser. Five drawers in total with three top glove drawers and two bottom deep drawers. Back is stamped with No945. Refinished in a blending technique using three colors: Sherwin-Williams Tradewind, Riverway and Open Seas. All original hardware revamped in Brushed Nickel. Long legs, curves for days this momma is available for purchase! Click over to Shop Selections to view details.

French Provincial Lingerie Chest

From gold to silver these two sisters got a Second Chance! My client inherited these old gals from her grandmother and wanted them to not only match her decor but to use in her guest bedroom.

Refinishing both of them in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and lightly glazing them in Network Grey helped make these two sisters match even though they are completely different. I also highlighted certain areas with metallic silver leaf. All original hardware revamped in Snowbound and highlighted with metallic silver.

Buffet

I am in love with the curves of this piece! I found her a few months back during one of my garage sale days and put her up over In the Studio for customization. A returning client of mine purchased her and wanted this buffet console to match a dining table and chairs I did for her back in 2014.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and glazed in Turkish Coffee. All hardware cleaned and kept original for that added sparkle. The top had been stained in Minwax Early American.
