I was tagged in a facebook post from a neighbor about someone looking for a furniture refinisher for her projects. As I was talking with my new client about her options for her television entertainment unit she mentioned wanting to get a hutch done as well. She found a hutch very fast and decided to start with that project first. A vintage french provincial style china cabinet by Fancher.
She sent me her inspirational photos and basically gave me free range. Oh my stars- I was thrilled! I knew from the moment I saw her when she came into my shop she needed to be glazed, not distressed, for a timeless- classic look.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. Original hardware and door wire revamped in bronze. The top of the dresser is stained in Dark Walnut for added gorgeous flair! It will be hard to part with her. I am so thankful my new client allowed me to give this gal a Second Chance!
About five years ago, I refinished a dresser that looked a little like this one. So when I met my client over at a gals house to pick this piece up to be refinished I was completely over the moon to get my hands on it!! There is just something about these French Provincial pieces that are stunning!
Refinished in Sherwin Williams Pure White and glazed in Tricorn Black to enhance the gorgeous details. Original hardware revamped in black.
Most recent projects. All gorgeous and unique! In fact, one is available for purchase. You can click over to Shop Selections to view details.
It isn’t everyday I get to play in purple paint, having a bright bold color to work with was exhilarating. When I delivered the shelves, it was then I got to see the full effect of how they look on the metal stand. I couldn’t be happier! Finally, four custom dining chairs, brightly finished and reupholstered.
I am speechless. Can we just take a moment and sit here and just look at this gal. A fantastic french provincial dresser with curves everywhere! She has 9 deep drawers. Dovetail construction. Solid.
When I found her during one of my treasure hunts I knew exactly how I wanted her to look. I put her up for customization over at In the Studio and waited patiently for any takers. I couldn’t handle it any longer! I needed to fulfill my vision!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and distressed. Gorgeous original handles updated in Black and wet distressed to bring in some patina shine to enhance their details. She is available for purchase! You can view her details over at Shop Selections.
December 2016 my last piece for the year was this gorgeous French Provincial Chest of Drawers . My client picked up a french provincial bedroom set and wanted an updated look. Clean and classic. Starting her bedroom transformation with the tall boy, refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Extra White. Original hardware revamped in gold. I finally got my hands on the the small dresser and mirror!
As some of you may know, I am a mother of three wonderful sweet boys! I live the ‘girlie decor’ through some of my furniture pieces and that is just alright with me!

Yes, its okay to gawk!!! I am. I am sitting here writing this blog post in front of her convincing myself to put a price tag on… *looking around* Where could I put you…
A gorgeous feminine in curves yet masculine in color, a statement piece perfect for your home!
Last week on my Facebook page, Second Chance Charms, I had asked my fellow re-finishers, clients and followers what color this dresser should be that came into the shop. I had total artist block. I knew in my heart glaze was a must… look at all that detail that needed to be showcased. I got many helpful responses. One of the ideas that were suggested was a two-toned look. At first I was nervous at the idea. This piece is already busy and I didn’t want too much going on. After I was finished priming her, I purposely left the drawers primed and painted the body in a dark gray. When I put the drawers back in it was there. Screaming yes!!!!
This amazingly huge dresser has 12 Drawers. (There is a mirror that can be refinished to match if interested- for an additional price). The base is refinished in Sherwin-Williams Gauntlet Gray. The drawer faces are painted in Reposed Grey. Finished off with Tricorn Black glaze. The original pulls of course had to be finished off in Nickle.
Measurements are 19″ deep x 68″ long x 35″ tall. Yes, she is FOR SALE! Click over to Shop Selections to view pricing.
