Retro Dresser and Nightstand

Last month I finished a retro nightstand, read here to view him: Retro Nightstand. I got my hands on the nightstands’ twin brother and his dresser. These pieces are such delicate items as their tops are a thin sheet of veneer. My client wanted them stained with a solid finished base. Sanding these tops are not only challenging but time consuming. One wrong move can destroy them. They have such a gorgeous design to them that needed to be showcased where the previous stain was too dark and hid their beauty.

Refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Black Bean and tops are stained in Armoire Hickory. Original hardware cleaned up. Stay tuned in for the matching mirror and armoire!

Retro Nightstand

I’m excited to get my hands on my clients’ parents retro bedroom set. We value and cherished items that are left behind after loved ones passing. Having their furniture refinished to match your style is just a great way to not only repurpose those memories but to also enjoy them!

First up, one of the nightstands. In total there is another nightstand, a dresser, and an armoire. Stay tuned in as I will be sharing those later as I get my hands on them, one piece at a time.

Refinished in a solid finish using Sherwin-Williams Black Bean. The veneer top stained in Armoire Hickory. Keeping with the hardware that my client had changed out a few years back, polished and cleaned.

Nightstands

I inquired these two nightstands that were DIY projects that didn’t turn out so great for the previous person. Both painted in black but the sheens were different. A returning client saw my post on Facebook and wanted them for her self and to be refinished in something I haven’t done. Pearl. Challenge accepted!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and coated with Faux Impressions Metallic Pearl for that shine. The top has been sanded down to raw wood and coated with the same Metallic Pearl. These beauties are really amazing! We finished the set with adding Antique Silver Mercury Scallop Knobs from Hobby Lobby. Love!!

French Provincial Set

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.

French Provincial End Table

A returning client brought me a French Provincial End Table that needed to go bold and beautiful. She is in the moving process and wanted to go bright in her new home! The before pictures may look familiar, its a piece I had refinished a long time ago. During his move, the handlers got a little careless. I had to fix the darwer, as it was cracked from something heavy falling on him.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tangerine and lightly glazed in Turkish Coffee brown. Hardware revamped in bronze.

Drexel End Table

If you have been in my boutique recently you’ve noticed the barn doors that I’ve been working on for my home. I was inspired by their style and your kind words to do that same color scheme on a piece of furniture.  I had this fun and exciting end table over at In the Studio up for customization.

He can be used as an end table or nightstand. Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Pure White and glazed in Gauntlet Grey. New hardware revamped in Black. Available for purchase you can view his details over at Shop Selections.
