Matching the two nightstands, this bedframe is up next! Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black in a solid sleek finish.
These two wooden nightstands got revamped in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black. A matching Bed Frame is to follow.
I had the opportunity to learn something new! My client loves her dining table, it belonged to her mother once apon a time. She was tired of the honey color stain. She purchased new chairs and wanted the table to match.
When receiving the table I quickly found out the top was formica made to look like wood. So it just couldn’t be stained. Not wanting to ruin my clients dreams of a different color stain I suggested we place a veneer over the existing top so we can stain it in any color.
A few things that my client wanted to change was the wavey part of the table edge. She wanted to do without that and make it more modern and straight.
I have never added a veneer top so the challenge was welcoming. Don’t get me wrong, I was completely nervous! I had both my father and husband help me glue and place the veneer top on three different sections so we still had the leaf option. As well as making sure the wood grain matched up, after cutting the sheet down to size. I pulled out the old dowells that were broken in the leaf and replaced them to fix any gap problems when closing the table together.
She was coming along nicely! Once my clients chairs came in I ran over and picked one up to color stain match for that perfect finish.
Refinished in a solid sleek look using Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black for the base and stained the top in a custom smokey walnut stain. Same table, different look!!
A lovely custom queen bedframe needed a sleek makeover! Refinished in a solid look using Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black.
Oh my heart!! The colors! All of this I just love!! When I visited my client for her color consultation she had a vision of how she wanted her family room pieces to look. Grey with a dark top to tie in her dark and dreamy kitchen. When verifying with her husband he mentioned a piece that he absolutely loved from my webpage: Bohemian Buffet by Link-Taylor
Another piece close to my heart that I really enjoyed doing. I looked over my shoulder and saw a painting hanging on the wall above their couch. I quickly pointed and said “we can use these colors!”
The excitement gained way and my mind was swirling! She ending up changing her original idea to a better one! The End Tables, I posted yesterday were grey and black glaze to tie in with this statement piece, making them still a matching set but with a lot more BOOM! This TV stand came out exactly how I envisioned!
Using Sherwin-Williams Tin Lizzie as our grey base I blended Jade Dragon, Interesting Aqua and Peppercorn. Glazing the unit in Tricorn Black to match the end tables which blended these three pieces together nicely. The top is Tin Lizzie just like the end tables. I added a pop of Sunny Veranda for an added artistic vibe. Changed out the hardware with white distressed grey knobs from Hobby Lobby.
These end tables have a TV unit that will be posted soon and let me just say, this is an awesome living room set.
C O L O R!!! Stay tuned in as the TV stand will be the statement piece for my clients house.
End tables are refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tin Lizzie. Glazed in Tricorn Black to tie in her dark dreamy kitchen. Updated the hardware using white distressed grey knobs from Hobby Lobby.
Buffet by Collezione Europa
Love the curves of this piece! My client liked how it was originally but wanted to get rid of the flowers and have the stain be more of an espresso rather then a light brown.
I got my hands on General Finishes gel stain and knew this product would be my best bet on making this piece look stained without having to sand down the entire piece.
Painting the outside base in Sherwin-Williams Java for a wood color to give my gel stain a base to work with was the first step. I refinished the inside of the unit in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black per my clients request. Adding multiple layers of General Finishes gel stain in Java, building up layers, creating definition like wood grain was a fun process. Once cured I glazed the entire piece in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn black to darken the stain and to glaze in all of the nooks and crannies to make more of an impact in the lines.
My client is getting new knobs, but in the meantime I revamped the hinges in Black and left the original knobs for my staged photos.
When a piece has been in the family for a long time and doesn’t match your decor, giving it a Second Chance is the perfect opportunity to make everyone fall in love all over again! My clients’ husband never cared for this piece, but he knew the importance of it to his wife. Today, I was able to make everyone happy with their family heirloom!
Refinished in Sherwin William’s Black Fox and glazed in Tricorn Black. Updated the hardware with these light grey and black knobs from Hobby Lobby.

When you find the right sized piece for your home but don’t need the broke record player that’s in it, take it out and add a shelf! This perfect little record player stand has been upcycled and turned into a sideboard for my clients dining room.
