This 1914 White Beauty Hoosier Cabinet has been in my clients family for over 100 years and has seen better days. They wanted this antique beauty to have some parts restored, like the flour sifter, hardware, metal spice holder, and side metal mounts. The original wood body to be refinished in white.
As I started to strip this gal I found 4 separate paint colors from throughout her life time. Not only was this paint extremely hard to remove but each layer was lead paint. Proper removal required the utmost safety precautions one must do. This gal took me a long time to complete.
Once the paint was removed she was looking rather good in her natural state! I replaced the backing on the top section as the original one had a few cracks and started to fall apart making her less sturdy.
The hardware was black and grimy, but once stripped, soaked and clean I found engraving marker’s and the original color to be nickel! The hinges and knobs were stained from time so I revamped them in nickel to give it a new fresh look.
Priming was the next step!
Once primed, I painted everything in Sherwin-Williams Greek Villa and did a light glaze using Sherwin-Williams Cadet, a soft blue grey to help tie in the porcelain enamel top. Finishing her off with adding nickel casters, like how she had before- once upon a time ago.
This project took time, patience and lots of stripper, sand paper and elbow grease. There was blood, sweat and tears, but we don’t need to go there. I am so happy with how she turned out and even more grateful to add her to my portfolio!
Alright! Last dresser for my clients room! This dresser is a completely different style and make. She received it from a family member and it works for them. Painting it to match, and adding the same hardware is going to make it look like its part of the set!

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.

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.
