“Emmett, what are you doing with my paint stirrers?”
“I’m a king, and these are my swords!”
I’ve been busy playing and enjoying my last few weeks with my half day Preschooler before the Summer Loven goes full blast. August he starts Kindergarten, full day, and life as I know it will undoubtedly change. I will have all three boys in school and an empty house. Talk about excitment and sadness!!
The good thing for you, is I will be able to schedule more jobs and really set off on Second Chance Charms. The past 7 years has been wonderful! I have all of you to thank for that!! You have allowed me to be a stay at home mother while helping pay a bill or two. Thank you!
I seriously don’t even know where to start with this blog post. I want to show you what I have been working on and the big changes we have made, but like all good things, it takes time to get everything perfect. The major work is completed, and all that is left is decorating, furnishing and fine tuning.
With that being said, I’ll show you some before photos and after photos of our home renovation!
Here are a few photos of the process. Let me just say, I am so thrilled to be at the point we are now. A few times it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
When you take a look at the after you will see we replaced the flooring with Wood Tile from Emser, the Mokuzai collection: Color Daku. Added quartz countertops by Daltile, Cinder Storm. Installed and painted new baseboards. Painted the walls in Sherwin-Williams Useful Grey. Painted the ceiling. Refinished the kitchen cabinets in Sherwin-Williams Hide White. Kitchen island painted in Sherwin-Williams Black Fox. Added kitchen hardware. Added ivory subway tiles backsplash by Pure with white groute. Along with a new deep sink, I of course treated myself to a new faucet!
As the process went underway in the house, I refinished a few of my own pieces to have them coincide with our new color scheme. My little coffee bar area is one of my favorite spots!
The front family room, and backpack wall got it’s own makeover as well. We are still furnishing it. We took the previous couch to the dump, but on the back wall to the left my hutch sits there and got a facelift as well.
We just finished painting the stairwell and half bath. Downstairs is almost complete and once everything is how it should be I will share more photos. We still want to change out the fans and replace the kitchen lighting with different pendants.
Thanks for looking!
Had some fun using a couple different colors on a piece of furniture! The inside is painted in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound, while the outside is in a mix of different layers using Maga Greige, Agreeable Gray and glazed in Rockweed.

There is a number of reasons why I love refinishing and restoring family heirlooms, hand-me-down furniture and grandpa’s builds. One reason, these pieces have significant meaning to my clients. Memories of the family get togethers around a dining table, a daughter inheriting her beloved mothers bedroom set after passing or simply a piece that someone in the family built by hand. You entrust me with these special pieces and I am absoutley honor to give them a Second Chance!
I have done a bedroom set for this client a couple years back and she finally got her hands on her aunts TV entertainment unit and wanted a fresh look.
This huge massive Tv Entertainment Unit has a top as well that I couldn’t put up by myself, nor place this entire four piece set in my staging area for a true picture. Nonetheless, I am completely over the moon with how she turned out!
Refinished in multiple different coats of Sher-Wood Dark Oak and a custom Grey stain. We added black rustic metal half moon pulls for an updated look, taking off glass doors and bottom doors for a more modern open concept.
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.
