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.

Buffet

Clearly I love refinishing furniture. One of the main reasons why I am extremely busy with client projects more so than available pieces (You can find those gems over in Shop Selections) are the reactions I get when my clients see their final pieces. Most of the pieces I refinish for my customers are heirloom pieces. The emotional attachment to these items are important, not just to you but to me as well. I understand the importance of each piece, as most of my furniture in my home came from family. There are mixed emotions you get when giving me something so special to transform. Doubt, guilt, excitement, and literally tears of joy, I have seen it all. I am so honored to be a small part of a page in your amazing story.

This buffet was a special one to my client. As it was given to her by her late grandmother. A concern that my client had in regards to her piece was leaving the inside of the unit intact. You can still smell grandmothers potpourri and my client didn’t want to lose that part of her. I closed off the inside and carefully hand washed this gal leaving no Second Chance trace on the inside.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Pure White and glazed in Gauntlet Gray. Revamped original hardware in nickel.
