Occasionally I will get the type of client that has difficulty seeing the big picture. Not a bad thing at all, a lot of us are visual people! I totally understand. However, the hardest part has already been achieved- messaging me with wanting to give your pieces a Second Chance. It can be scary for first time clients. I am here to make this process enjoyable, stress free and your pieces lasting another lifetime and beyond.
She has a dining set and hutch that she wants refinished but because she was having a hard time envisioning it I offered to first do a chair so she could see it in her home and make sure she was happy with our color consultation choices. As well as give her the opportunity to feel her piece of furniture. To see that her piece is contractor grade, not paint slapped on .
I am in the midst of working on her table as she is head over heels with how her chair turned out. Here is the first piece I did for her, a dining chair, that helped her have faith!
Stay tuned in as her dining table is next and a matching hutch to come soon.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa, lightly glazed in Brown. Seat reupholstered in a grey vinyl from Joann Fabric Store.
If you have been in my home, you will know where my boutique room is located. I believe that this random spot in my home is supposed to be a dining area. However, it’s completely on the other side of the house away from the kitchen. So completely not functional.
Enclosing this area and making it a den is perfect for anyone who will need an office/playroom or for me, a boutique room to store my inventory pieces and staging area! With two openings entering this room; one hallway area and a huge arch doorway. I had a few ideas. I wanted to enclosed the hallway area providing shelves for storage and add barn doors to close off the room when not in use.
Here is the new wall we added (with the help of my amazing father). This view is from the family room.
Here is the boutique room with the barn doors that I refinished myself. I am in the mist of making shelves in the space where we built the wall to match the barn doors. These shelves will house my portfolios, cards, staging decor and the likes. Everything is almost complete!
Looking from our living room when you enter our home, you can see the barn doors. They are a gorgeous focal point and I have had many compliments this far. It took me years to find these doors. I found them from craigslist and I wanted a certain style of doors. Where I have the arch on my opening, I wanted my doors to have that same thing on top. These doors were once front doors to a huge home in Scottsdale. I had to cut them down to fit. I bought the barn door hardware from Amazon. Walls are painted in Sherwin William’s Gossamer Vail.
I’ve waited so long to have this space done and its exactly how I envisioned it. Better, actually.
What do you think of my little happy space dedicated to Second Chance Charms?
While I don’t build exciting things- I can finish them in a professional finish for you! That’s exactly what my client had me do. Her husband and a family friend built two baby gates and a farmhouse table and bench for their new home. Click here to see the gates that we finished for her a couple weeks ago: Baby Gates.
Stained in a custom grey stain that I made up for my client based on her insprational photos from Pinterest and our conversations.

Happiness does not come from doing easy work but from the afterglow of satisfaction that comes after the achievement of a difficult task that demanded our best.
