I enjoy the process of refreshing, from start to finish. The prep all the way through to the staging. What really makes my heart skip a beat, is when you send me your client photos!
You can tag me in most media platforms, as well as send me your photos and I can share them here for the world to see! Here are a few, and as I get more I will update them on this post and place this post up top for easy access. Enjoy!
Three more custom chairs finished! Two more to go.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. My client picked out a cream and grey damask fabric from Joanns Fabric Store. Finally adding a dark grey cord to match and to finish them off!
Looking for a dining room buffet or a tv unit? Look no more, I have the perfect piece for you!
“Looking forward to things is half the pleasure of them” – L. M. Montgomery. This gorgeous buffet is refinished in Sherwin-Williams Useful Grey. Glazed in Dovetail (Dark Grey) to pop out all the nooks and crannies! Look at this gals body!! I’m in love with the sleek design! I added these four round knobs and revamped them in white and glazed them in Dovetail Grey.
Continuing with my clients bedroom set her dresser is making her debut! Yesterday I posted her nightstands:Refinished in Sherwin Williams Greek Villa and lightly distressed in the lines. Top stained in Minwax Weathered Teak. Original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze. Light, bright and airy! My pup loves it too!Before:
I am so excited to share this piece built by Link-Taylor! I had it available for customization over at In the Studio and a returning client got her hands on her. When we were discussing ideas I was so thrilled to do something bright, bold and bohemian! This piece will be in her art studio as the center of attention!
She chose the colors Sherwin-Williams Jamaica Bay, Brave Purple and Solaria. I blended the blue and purple in different areas and added yellow as an accent color. Next, I glazed her in brown to bring all these brilliant colors together for a flawless look. Lastly, adding a mix and match of gorgeous knobs from Hobby Lobby to complete her bohemian style.
I really enjoyed this process, its very freeing and forgiving. With no rules, anything goes and I was able to just put myself out there artistically. I hope you love her as much as my client and myself do!
I love this little folding chair! Even more so the story behind it. My client was out walking her pup and noticed a neighbor throwing this chair out into the trash. She stopped him and ask if she could have it. He replied with “it’s broken, are you sure?”…
“I have a girl who can fix it!” She tells him.
So here we are, fixed his leg and replaced the screws. Refinished him using Sherwin-Williams Black Fox and lightly distressing him. Added a new print fabric that my client picked out. She gave this fellow a second chance, literally saving him from the trash!
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!
Bright, bold and blingy! My client received this piece for FREE from an old neighbor. She had it for many years and was ready for a change.
Refinishing this gal in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Lechmere. My client found back plates online and wanted them revamped in a Copper Rose. Adding some blingy knobs finished this gal up! The secret small drawer I painted in Copper Rose for a fun surprise!
The huge round mirror didn’t need to be refinished and will be installed when I deliver this girl!
