A handmade wooden bench from New York found his way to Arizona! His owner moved here in the beginning of the year and wanted his front porch bench to have a new look. To help preserve the life of this wooden bench I stripped away the old sealant and stain. Restaining in Minwax Jacobean this NY bench is ready for his debut in Arizona!
A very plain Jane turned into a rustic Beauty. This sofa table had two glass panels on the top and my client asked that I put wood slats on the top to create a farmhouse feel as well as added support.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Useful Grey and distressed for a farmhouse charm. The top I installed wood slats and stained them in Minwax Walnut.
Available for purchase! Click over to Shop Selections. This lovely piece is perfect to be used as an entry way piece or small buffet.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Porpoise
and glazed in Urbane Bronze. Hardware is brass library card catalog pulls that you can place tabs in or not. The top is stained using Weathered Oak with a grey wash.
Loved how my clients Coffee Table turned out! Up next is her Endtable. Having all three pieces match, I am still using Sherwin-Williams Sealskin in a solid sleek finish. The top is stained in Weathered Teak. And the original knob revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze.
Seven dining chairs and a table that I am head over heals for!! My husband loved this set so much that we decided to keep it and replace it with our old set.
I had this set in inventory ready to be customized posted In The Studio for a while with no takers. After walking by it for quite some time, I had an idea of how I wanted them to be refinished. Of course, I had all intentions on selling them. My husband was helping me move the set inside to be staged and he says to me, “oooh, we’re keeping this right?”… you can’t say that to me! So, stay tuned in, I will be redoing our farmhouse table and chairs and sending out First Dibs email (round oak table with a leaf to create an oval with six farmhouse X back chairs).
Refinishing the base of these chairs in a solid finish using Sherwin-Williams High Hide White (which matches my cabinets). I wanted the seats to be stained to match the table top. I used Minwax Weathered Teak in a clear base.
Next up for this client is her dining table. You recall the buffet, hutch and chairs? I still have 2 more chairs to complete but at least I feel like we are getting somewhere with her dining area makeover! Slowly but surely!
This gorgeous set has two leafs that was also refinished, but wasn’t set up when we took pictures in her home. This table was too massive for me to move into my studio for staging, but seeing it all together with the other pieces in my clients home made me smile nonetheless!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. The top is stained in Minwax Weathered Teak.
My client found the perfect dining table for her space but wanted the the top to be a different color.
Refinished the top using Varathane Weathered Oak. I also glazed the base in Sherwin-Williams Anonymous to help tie in her buffet that will be sharing the same space.
“Oh my gosh! It’s so beautiful. I can’t believe I contemplated getting rid of it and buying a new piece for my space.”
Really in love with this gal! My client had a vision and although she didn’t quite push me out of my comfort zone, I found a challenge worth the reward.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Anonymous and glazed in one shade darker using Porpoise. (The challenge in glazing one shade darker was I couldn’t tell how much of the glaze I was applying and taking off. When paint is wet its lighter. So during the glazing process I felt like I was reapplying the same base color. Talk about nervousness!) The top is stained using Varathane Wood Stain in Weathered Oak. The original hardware is cleaned up, however, the two long plates were more gold. In order to match them to the pulls I sprayed the two plates in Oil Rubbed Bronze and wet sanded them to bring a little gold out to match the existing pulls.
A returning client wanted her antique chest of drawers refinished. Loving the pattern on the original wood she wanted the faces stained.
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Gray Matters and glazed in Cyberspace. The top and drawer faces are stained in Minwax Weathered Teak. The casters are revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze and the original hardware cleaned up and left alone.
Continuing with my clients bedroom set, nightstands were posted last week, Dresser is next up!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Alabaster and heavily distressed. Tops stained in Minwax Jacobean. Original hardware revamped in Oil Rubbed Bronze.
