Art Deco Vanity

I love these waterfall furniture pieces. This piece belongs to my Aunt. She had purchased this art deco vanity some time ago back in California at an antique shop. Finally ready to give her a Second Chance she decided on the classic stain and paint combo!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and distressed.  The top veneer on this vanity is stained in Dark Walnut. We updated the pulls with antique gold glass knobs from Hobby Lobby. I removed the back middle part where the mirror connected; as my Aunt didn’t want to use the original mirror. I think she looks fantastic!

Dining Table

My clients’ parents had many memories around this dining table for years. Family dinners, holiday parties and much more! So when age, water damage and normal ware and tear got the best of this old gal, they turned to me to have her refinished. Now she can give many more happy times to a wonderful loving group of people!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Toasty and glazed in Tricorn Black. The underside is finished as well for those times the table leafs are down giving full beauty to this antique. Top stained in Chestnut.

Antique Record Player Cabinet

This was an exciting piece to be apart of, it didn’t involve refinishing but a nice restoration. My client bought this from her neighbor who bought it from a garage sale. Restoring this ol gal to her glory days involved sanding down the top and re-staining it in a custom Chestnut stain to match. The rest of this girl needed a nice deep clean to bring her back to life. I was told all her record parts work beautifully and now she too can sing a new tune with her Second Chance restoration!

Entertainment Unit

This media console is absolutely enormous! So please excuse my final photos being taken in the shop and without hardware (which is at his home.) It doesn’t give this piece the respect it deserves. I can’t wait until he is all set up in his house and I can get some beautiful pictures of this guy to share!

A custom TV entertainment unit by Robb & Stucky totaling in six different pieces, by far my biggest piece to have been refinished. (If you don’t count Kitchen Cabinets 😉 Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and glazed in Well-Bred-Brown. Lightly distressed in a few area where I saw fit, such as the legs and bottom molding where glaze couldn’t sit. The tops and backing were kept original finish from the previous manufacture.

My client got her piece all setup! Love how this massive entertainment unit looks in her home. Definitely lighten up her space!

2015 Portfolio

Second Chance Charms had a wonderful 2015 year! From the bottom of my heart, I thank each and every one of you. Your support, whether you are a Like on a page, a fellow artist or a client, has given me confidence.

To be successful at something, not only must you enjoy it but you have to be great at it. Your request for unique finishes helped me challenge my artistic side. I matured as a refinisher from achieving customers desired results. Fear is behind me and endless possibilities lay before me.

Inhale confidence. Exhale doubt.

I am looking forward to 2016.
