Home Remodeling

I seriously don’t even know where to start with this blog post. I want to show you what I have been working on and the big changes we have made, but like all good things, it takes time to get everything perfect. The major work is completed, and all that is left is decorating, furnishing and fine tuning.

With that being said, I’ll show you some before photos and after photos of our home renovation!

Here are a few photos of the process. Let me just say, I am so thrilled to be at the point we are now. A few times it was hard to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

When you take a look at the after you will see we replaced the flooring with Wood Tile from Emser, the Mokuzai collection: Color Daku. Added quartz countertops by Daltile, Cinder Storm. Installed and painted new baseboards. Painted the walls in Sherwin-Williams Useful Grey. Painted the ceiling. Refinished the kitchen cabinets in Sherwin-Williams Hide White. Kitchen island painted in Sherwin-Williams Black Fox. Added kitchen hardware. Added ivory subway tiles backsplash by Pure with white groute. Along with a new deep sink, I of course treated myself to a new faucet!

As the process went underway in the house, I refinished a few of my own pieces to have them coincide with our new color scheme. My little coffee bar area is one of my favorite spots!

The front family room, and backpack wall got it’s own makeover as well. We are still furnishing it. We took the previous couch to the dump, but on the back wall to the left my hutch sits there and got a facelift as well.

We just finished painting the stairwell and half bath. Downstairs is almost complete and once everything is how it should be I will share more photos. We still want to change out the fans and replace the kitchen lighting with different pendants.

Thanks for looking!

Buffet TV unit

My grandmother found this piece for sale at Goodwill for me, when I picked it up I fell in love with her serpentine lines and the solidness of this piece. We were looking for something new to place under our TV in the family room since we are renovating the house.

I asked my husband what color and style he wanted and he told me he wanted a sleek black on black look. So that’s what I did for him!

Refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black, stained the top in a brown. Revamped the original hardware in black.

2018 Portfolio

Second Chance Charms had a wonderful 2018 year! Refinishing a total of 78 pieces, fifteen of them were inventory selections and one donation piece! This year brought welcomed challenges and some old family heirlooms!

Thank you! Thank you!

There is no line between fine art and illustration; there is no high or low art; there is only art, and it comes in many forms.

Looking back on 2018 I was able to finish my Boutique Room project, I was featured in The Happy Home Newsletter as well as Featured in VoyagePhoenix! Last year my goal was Illustration. I didn’t get to do videos (camera shy) but I did try to show tutorials via photos on Behind the Scenes Furniture Group on Facebook. This year I want to Focus. I want to focus on myself, my family and how this passion makes me incredibly happy and humbled.

Thank you for being apart of my journey, supporting my business and allowing me to do what I love!

TV Entertainment Unit

There is a number of reasons why I love refinishing and restoring family heirlooms, hand-me-down furniture and grandpa’s builds. One reason, these pieces have significant meaning to my clients. Memories of the family get togethers around a dining table, a daughter inheriting her beloved mothers bedroom set after passing or simply a piece that someone in the family built by hand. You entrust me with these special pieces and I am absoutley honor to give them a Second Chance!

I have done a bedroom set for this client a couple years back and she finally got her hands on her aunts TV entertainment unit and wanted a fresh look.

This huge massive Tv Entertainment Unit has a top as well that I couldn’t put up by myself, nor place this entire four piece set in my staging area for a true picture. Nonetheless, I am completely over the moon with how she turned out!

Refinished in multiple different coats of Sher-Wood Dark Oak and a custom Grey stain. We added black rustic metal half moon pulls for an updated look, taking off glass doors and bottom doors for a more modern open concept.

Before:

Armoire

One more piece to go to complete my client’s master bedroom set she inherited from her mother and father.

Refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Black Bean. The top of the unit as well as the top of the middle section (even though it’s one solid piece) are stained in Armoire Hickory. Original hardware cleaned up. Stay tuned in for the matching mirror.

Before:

Curio Cabinet

This transformation rocks, my clients were over the original finish and plain look of this piece. They wanted change!

This curio cabinet has been revamped in a solid finish using Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and added iron pipe hardware. I also added brackets on the corners of the piece for more character. There are glass shelves for the inside of this piece that my clients held onto. I cant wait to see how she decorates her curio cabinet.
