Next up for this client is her dining table. You recall the buffet, hutch and chairs? I still have 2 more chairs to complete but at least I feel like we are getting somewhere with her dining area makeover! Slowly but surely!
This gorgeous set has two leafs that was also refinished, but wasn’t set up when we took pictures in her home. This table was too massive for me to move into my studio for staging, but seeing it all together with the other pieces in my clients home made me smile nonetheless!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. The top is stained in Minwax Weathered Teak.
A returning client wanted her antique chest of drawers refinished. Loving the pattern on the original wood she wanted the faces stained.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Gray Matters and glazed in Cyberspace. The top and drawer faces are stained in Minwax Weathered Teak. The casters are revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze and the original hardware cleaned up and left alone.
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.
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.
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!
SOLD! A gorgeous farmhouse front bowed dresser! Perfect for any use such as a coffee bar, bedroom and or television unit.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Dovetail and heavily distressed for a shabby look. Added new Brown Flourish Metal Knobs with Plates from Hobby Lobby to give her that lovely farmhouse charm. Perfect for any space!
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.
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.
