I have been wanting to do a bending technique for a while now on one of my pieces of furniture. However, I felt like I needed to have a certain piece to do it- Something that has detail and curves. It could be because all my inspiration out there would have the perfect old vintage pieces that I absolutely was obsessing over. I finally found this little dresser and thought its perfect!
An antique serpentine front dresser. Five drawers in total with three top glove drawers and two bottom deep drawers. Back is stamped with No945. Refinished in a blending technique using three colors: Sherwin-Williams Tradewind, Riverway and Open Seas. All original hardware revamped in Brushed Nickel. Long legs, curves for days this momma is available for purchase! Click over to Shop Selections to view details.
Even though these nightstands do not match in structure, having them refinished in the same style sets them off to be a set. French Provincial his and her nightstands along with a tall chest of drawers dresser.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Wall Street. Glazed in Tricorn Black to pop out all these lovely details these pieces have to offer. Original pulls and knobs revamped in Nickel and also glazed in Tricorn Black.
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.
Monday I posted the Master Bedroom Nightstands, next are the matching dresser and mirror. Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Pure White and lightly distressed. The top stained in a lighter gray. Followed by having the original hardware revamped in Nickel. Replacing the middle door hardware with knobs and revamping them to match.
