Curio Cabinet

This piece has been in my clients family for well over 100 years. They even restored this lovely gem at one point. Ready for a change and entrusting me with the task I was excited to get my little hands on her!

I had just completed refinishing my clients daughters TV entertainment unit and hutch when they realized what paint and glaze can do to a piece of furniture.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Westhighland White. Glazed in Turish Coffee brown to pop out her details. Stained the top in Dark Walnut. Revamped the original hardware, key included, in oil rubbed bronze. Lovely!

Antique Buffet- 100th Piece YTD

I am so excited to finally get to my 100th piece of refinished furniture year to date! This year I have had the pleasure to refinish many huge pieces that had anywhere from three upwards to six individual sections to create one gorgeous piece of furniture. Naturally I didn’t include those individual items, but rather counted each piece as a whole.

Browsing through my Portfolio I can’t help but be smitten from all the lovely creations- most of them client own pieces. Not only did I pour my sweat, heart and soul in each one; creating the image that each client had for their particular piece has always been a rewarding adventure.

Without further adieu let me introduce to you my 100th piece of furniture for 2017!!! An antique buffet my client has brought to Arizona from Denver. Back in her day this gal had tall legs, they were cut down about forty years ago so this piece could be used as a chest. But before the sensation swept the nation with using amazing statement pieces for Tv Entertainment Units, my clients family did just that and has many memories with this piece throughout the years. After my clients mother’s’ passing, she inherited her old friend and had Second Chance Charms refinish her so she could match her home decor and style. Wonderful past memories and making future ones to come- this gal gets to keep going looking better than ever!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Whirlpool for a soothing pop of color. Glazed in Well-Bred Brown to show off all the glorious details this gal has to offer. Stained her lovely top in Dark Walnut for some originality. finished her off with cleaning up her hardware and keeping the original pitia as much as possible.

Tv Entertainment Unit

Oh how I have missed the keys of my computer. This morning I sat down drinking my pumpkin spice coffee enjoying the gorgeous cool morning Arizona breeze on my patio, I realized that I have not posted in 12 days.

That doesn’t mean that I wasn’t working- oh how I am excited to share with you some new pieces that were transformed! Most of my time was taken up by a massive Tv Entertainment Unit for a client.

After a horrible house fire, my client was able to save some of her items. Now that her house is being rebuilt she figured now was the perfect time to start fresh with her style and decor. Here is a before picture of her unit!

This unit was too big to fit in my studio for staging. So I waited patiently on pins and needles today waiting for photos from my client to share! I did my best taking some in my home to share, but it just wasn’t the same. I finally got her photos and I am sharing now! Oh my heart! I’m so in love!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. Took out the glass doors and added chicken wire for a Farmhouse Chic look. Revamped all original hardware and chicken wire in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Dining Table

I have refinished a couple dining tables that is this style; a sleek and simple design. To give something depth when there is none, especially on the legs of this piece, distressing and or glazing is always a great way to give definition. 

Refinished the base and legs of this dining table in Dunn Edwards Pebble Walk and glazed in a dark brown. The top is finished in Sherwin Williams Rockweed.

French Provincial Dresser

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.
