Hutch

One solid massive piece that I needed help moving around to refinish. Once I took off the doors and removed the shelves it lighten the load a little but still a heavy piece!

My client had her colors picked out when she dropped her hutch off and knew exactly what she wanted. Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. Original hardware revamped in Black. Simple. Gorgeous.

Dresser

Word of mouth is such a huge compliment to me and I absolutely appreciate it! This client came to me, referred by her friend, to have her entire bedroom set refinished.

First piece up is her dresser. This piece has an open top section area for the TV box and DVR devices, which I thought is perfect to maintain the top of your dresser and to minimize clutter.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and lightly glazed in Turkish Coffee. The top is left untouched and original. The hardware was cleaned.

Corner Armoire

My client uses this corner armoire as a wine/bar server. It has two shelves that I also refinished but didn’t photo as my client kept the pegs for them.

Refinished in a color from Bear called Hemisphere. Of course I had the color made in my Sherwin-Williams paints! New hardware picked out by my client, modern square knobs with plates in oil rubbed bronze. Glazed in the lines using Turkish Coffee.

Mid-Century Lane Furniture Cedar Trunk

This gorgeous Mid-Century Cedar Trunk by Lane Furniture was my clients mothers and she had it in her home for a while. Never matching her style she was ready to do something with it. Second Chance Charms to the rescue!

After many years of wear and tear my client wanted the wood inlays on the top to come back to life. As well as getting rid of the water marks and chips on the veneer this handsome fellow was in need of a restoration on the top!

Refinishing the base in Sherwin-Williams Burlap, heavily glazing in Turkish Coffee. I restored the top in Minwax Early American. Revamped the original hardware and lock in Oil Rubbed Bronze. I noticed the hardware was very similar to the inlays, which I thought was super special!

Antique Chair

Ever take on a project and you feel like your client has more faith in you, then you do towards your own limits? Talk about stress. I KNEW I could, it was just… NEW territory. Which is scary, nervracking and completely intimidating.

My client has an old gorgeous dining set that was past down from her mother. I saw the potential, don’t get me wrong! But the question for me was, “how in the hell am I going to do this?”.

She gave me one of her chairs and said, I want to see what you can do. This transformation is by far one of my favorites. Perhaps its because I literally shed tears, blood and sweat working on it. The reward was greatly satisfying.

My clients chair had the wicker back which completely dated it. However, her bones were glorious!

I first started out by removing the wicker from the backing. We didn’t want it, we wanted a cushion to replace that area. I sanded it back and cut out wood that would replace this area.

Primed, painted and glazed. I could do this in my sleep. It wasn’t until the reupholstering and the ‘How’ of it all that had me questioning my abilities.

Back of chair. Fabric tightly pulled over the new wood section.
Seat cushion reupholstering. I always remove the old. Love starting fresh!
Doing each step helped me remain calm and had me realize how this was all going to work out

Next, I added batting on the back (where your back will relax at). I pulled the fabric over and started stapling like a crazy women. Finalizing the edge with cord gives a professional appearance.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and Glazed in Cyberspace. Matching the buffet I recently finished. My client picked out a cream and grey damask fabric from Joanns. A dark grey cord to match and to finish her off!

Brand new, stylish and comfortable!!!
