2020 Portfolio

Although many of us are ready to say goodbye to 2020, I can’t help but reflect on the past year- despite the chaos- I did have a wonderful year. We were surrounded by our wonderful crew who kept us sane during such a weird time in not only the United States of America but the freaking WORLD!? My heart goes out to all of those who have been affected by the pandemic. For the family and friends you have lost- may you find peace. For those of you who have work so very hard on your business only for it to be dismantled abruptly- may you rebuild back bigger then ever! I implore YOU. Keep fighting. Stay Strong. Have faith!

Goodbye 2020! I made lovely creations for old clients as well as I got to meet some new customers! Refinishing a total of 64 pieces: 6 First Dibs, 2 pieces created with my mother, and the rest custom orders! YIPPEE! Thank you!

You are all truly amazing humans! Thank you for your support!

“The world always seems brighter when you’ve just made something that wasn’t there before” – Neil Gaiman

The first piece I created in 2020 was one I did with my mother. Maureen Flanigan used her creativity and painted a farm house by hand on an antique tall boy dresser. I have him placed in my home and view it daily. Completely in love by it still. The furniture pieces I created this year didn’t give me much trouble, or maybe perhaps I am gaining confidence. I’m not sure what to make of it, but I did enjoy each furniture piece and am incredibly grateful by all of them!

I didn’t set a goal for myself in 2020 which is rather odd. I have made goals for myself each year and did my best to fulfill each one of them and apply them to my life at home and at Second Chance Charms. I am NOT SAYING that the fate of the WORLD is on my shoulders, but I find it rather odd how our past year was basically a shit show and I didn’t have a goal…. ha ha I’m kidding- But just in case I better come up with a 2021 goal!.. because it seems rather coincidental ūüėČ

Evolve

I’m super excited for 2021 and growing Second Chance Charms. Modifying my creativity into something more. Pushing past mind barriers and really jumping in with both feet. Lets see what becomes of 2021!

Thank you again, for your continued support. having be apart of your homes and gifts for loved ones!

Much love, Becca

Antique Folding Chair

I love this little folding chair! Even more so the story behind it. My client was out walking her pup and noticed a neighbor throwing this chair out into the trash. She stopped him and ask if she could have it. He replied with “it’s broken, are you sure?”…

“I have a girl who can fix it!” She tells him.

So here we are, fixed his leg and replaced the screws. Refinished him using Sherwin-Williams Black Fox and lightly distressing him. Added a new print fabric that my client picked out. She gave this fellow a second chance, literally saving him from the trash!

2018 Portfolio

Second Chance Charms had a wonderful 2018 year! Refinishing a total of 78 pieces, fifteen of them were inventory selections and one donation piece! This year brought welcomed challenges and some old family heirlooms!

Thank you! Thank you!

There is no line between fine art and illustration; there is no high or low art; there is only art, and it comes in many forms.
‚Äē James Gurney

Looking back on 2018 I was able to finish my Boutique Room¬†project, I was featured in The Happy Home Newsletter¬†as well as¬†Featured in VoyagePhoenix! Last year my goal was Illustration. I didn’t get to do videos (camera shy) but I did try to show tutorials via photos on Behind the Scenes Furniture Group on Facebook. This year I want to Focus. I want to focus on myself, my family and how this passion makes me incredibly happy and humbled.

Thank you for being apart of my journey, supporting my business and allowing me to do what I love!

Recent October Highlights

Ended October with painted goodness! Which one is your favorite piece? If you missed out on any of these debuts, you can always click over and read all about them! Three custom pieces and a bedroom set from inventory that sold within an hour of posting on Facebook!

TV Entertainment Unit

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.

Before:

Armoire

One more piece to go to complete my client’s master bedroom set she inherited from her mother and father.

Refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Black Bean. The top of the unit as well as the top of the middle section (even though it’s one solid piece) are stained in Armoire Hickory. Original hardware cleaned up. Stay tuned in for the matching mirror.

Before:

Vintage Record Cabinet

I’m super excited to share this piece! My friend got this antique record stereo cabinet from a family member and has plans on fixing up the insides and making it work! Until then she wanted the outside refinished and looking chic in her space.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and distressed for a perfect shabby chic feel. Original knobs cleaned.

Dipped French Provincial Nightstand 

I have been wanting to do this dip look for quiet sometime! My client wanted gray and gold with a white glaze. We picked the color Sherwin-Williams Network Gray and Pure Gold. Revamped the original hardware in Pure Gold and glazed in white. Swoon!! 

Navy End Table

This wonderful gal is up for sale! Click on over to Shop Selections to view details.

Refinished in a Navy blue and original hardware updated in gold for a nice pop! The body and top have been distressed in the natural wear and tear areas. This piece has a small crack and chip. This is the first piece where I left her as is, instead of fixing and covering her stories, I chose to leave them hoping that someone will love it as much as I do!
