Bohemian Buffet by Link-Taylor

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!

Antique Folding Chair

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!

1914 White Beauty Hoosier Cabinet

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.

Before Pictures:

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!
