Buffet

“Oh my gosh! It’s so beautiful. I can’t believe I contemplated getting rid of it and buying a new piece for my space.”

Really in love with this gal! My client had a vision and although she didn’t quite push me out of my comfort zone, I found a challenge worth the reward.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Anonymous and glazed in one shade darker using Porpoise. (The challenge in glazing one shade darker was I couldn’t tell how much of the glaze I was applying and taking off. When paint is wet its lighter. So during the glazing process I felt like I was reapplying the same base color. Talk about nervousness!) The top is stained using Varathane Wood Stain in Weathered Oak. The original hardware is cleaned up, however, the two long plates were more gold. In order to match them to the pulls I sprayed the two plates in Oil Rubbed Bronze and wet sanded them to bring a little gold out to match the existing pulls.

Hutch

A few weeks back I refinished a chair and a buffet that matches this hutch. My client has many more chairs and a dining table that I will be work on soon. Meep!!!

Refinishing these custom pieces in my clients style is so satisfying. I love her taste and can’t wait to see her dining room all set up once completed!

Using the color Software by Sherwin-Williams and glazing in Cyberspace. I stained the top in Weathered Teak. Added new hardware that my client purchased, Crystal Knobs matched with silver plates changes this piece to the better! Like most of my customs, I will have my clients keep the glass at home, in this case, two glass doors and glass shelves are at home waiting to be put back in.

Lexington Victorian Sampler Dresser and Mirror

Such a gorgeous dresser my client has!! She refinished it sometime ago and wanted a new look. This dresser by Lexington has grooves, crevices and curves in all the right places!

My client is ordering hardware, so unfortunately I will have to post this gorgeous piece without her completely finished. Trust me when I say, its very hard for me to do that. Haha

Nonetheless I will still stage her in all her beauty! Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Gray Matters and glazed in Cyberspace. I did not stain the top as my client was happy with how it was before, a beautiful dark finish. I did clean up a few troubled areas for her on the stain that was near the body of the piece.

TV Stand

Oh my heart!! The colors! All of this I just love!! When I visited my client for her color consultation she had a vision of how she wanted her family room pieces to look. Grey with a dark top to tie in her dark and dreamy kitchen. When verifying with her husband he mentioned a piece that he absolutely loved from my webpage: Bohemian Buffet by Link-Taylor

Another piece close to my heart that I really enjoyed doing. I looked over my shoulder and saw a painting hanging on the wall above their couch. I quickly pointed and said “we can use these colors!”

The excitement gained way and my mind was swirling! She ending up changing her original idea to a better one! The End Tables, I posted yesterday were grey and black glaze to tie in with this statement piece, making them still a matching set but with a lot more BOOM! This TV stand came out exactly how I envisioned!

Using Sherwin-Williams Tin Lizzie as our grey base I blended Jade Dragon, Interesting Aqua and Peppercorn. Glazing the unit in Tricorn Black to match the end tables which blended these three pieces together nicely. The top is Tin Lizzie just like the end tables. I added a pop of Sunny Veranda for an added artistic vibe. Changed out the hardware with white distressed grey knobs from Hobby Lobby.

Small Buffet

When a piece has been in the family for a long time and doesn’t match your decor, giving it a Second Chance is the perfect opportunity to make everyone fall in love all over again! My clients’ husband never cared for this piece, but he knew the importance of it to his wife. Today, I was able to make everyone happy with their family heirloom!

Refinished in Sherwin William’s Black Fox and glazed in Tricorn Black. Updated the hardware with these light grey and black knobs from Hobby Lobby.
