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.
James Gurney

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!

Recent October Highlights

Ended October with painted goodness! Which one is your favorite piece? If you missed out on any of these debuts, you can always click over and read all about them! Three custom pieces and a bedroom set from inventory that sold within an hour of posting on Facebook!

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:

Tv Entertainment Unit

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.


Bookcase

A bookcase that was built by my clients father when he was younger was brought in for a Second Chance. She wanted the backdrop to pop against the white and to have it match the bed frame and dresser I refinished for her back in 2015. 

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Dover White. The backing is Sherwin-Williams Black Fox and Glazed in Tricorn Black.

Vintage Record Cabinet

I’m super excited to share this piece! My friend got this antique record stereo cabinet from a family member and has plans on fixing up the insides and making it work! Until then she wanted the outside refinished and looking chic in her space.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and distressed for a perfect shabby chic feel. Original knobs cleaned.
