I was tagged in a facebook post from a neighbor about someone looking for a furniture refinisher for her projects. As I was talking with my new client about her options for her television entertainment unit she mentioned wanting to get a hutch done as well. She found a hutch very fast and decided to start with that project first. A vintage french provincial style china cabinet by Fancher.
She sent me her inspirational photos and basically gave me free range. Oh my stars- I was thrilled! I knew from the moment I saw her when she came into my shop she needed to be glazed, not distressed, for a timeless- classic look.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. Original hardware and door wire revamped in bronze. The top of the dresser is stained in Dark Walnut for added gorgeous flair! It will be hard to part with her. I am so thankful my new client allowed me to give this gal a Second Chance!
In love. I believe that I am known for glazing, and these last four projects that I refinished are either solid finish or distressed. I enjoyed myself regardless and I hope you can admire the beauty each of these pieces have!
My client had these for quite some time and needed a change. Not only wanted to keep them due to their well built sturdiness, but the character these pieces have. I absolutely love the front glass window like panes.
Refinished in a solid finish in Sherwin-Williams Pure White. New updated hardware and hinges give a softer feel to this piece from the original rustic ones from before.
Remember the Hutch End Pieces that were completed back on January 11th? This piece is the section that goes in the middle of those two pieces! I can not wait to get a photo from my client on how this turned out all together!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Paperwhite and lightly distressed. Original hardware revamped in bronze. What is special about this piece is that it use to be an armoire. To give this old set a more modern feel my client’s husband hacked off the top! Creating only a base with no limit for television size plus she can add decor on the wall behind if she choose too. I added a shelf inside to hold my clients’ husbands receivers, consoles etc. (Those boys seem to have so many “things” that are must haves!). Popped a hole in the back for wires.
Simple doesn’t mean easy! A sleek solid finish for this transformation! (I find that it is hard to photograph dark blues, or maybe its my camera phone.) Nonetheless, this piece turned out great! A dark navy color matched to a shelf my client provided. New gold dipped white feather pulls are absolutely lovely!
