TV Stand

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.

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.

Small Buffet

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.

Dresser and Nightstand

Seriously, the size isn’t justified in photos. These gals do have a brother that will be posted next week, a chest of drawers. For now, drool with me over these honeys!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and lightly distressed. My client wanted to keep the original hardware as is, just cleaned up.

Sideboard

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.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Tricorn Black and lightly distressed around the edges. The original hardware has been polished and cleaned for that vintage look.

Side note: Our newest member of the family is making her debut! I will try not to have her in all my photos, but, there is no guarantee! Meet Miss Justice, Second Chance Charms shop pup!

French Provincial Set

Even though these nightstands do not match in structure, having them refinished in the same style sets them off to be a set. French Provincial his and her nightstands along with a tall chest of drawers dresser.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Wall Street. Glazed in Tricorn Black to pop out all these lovely details these pieces have to offer. Original pulls and knobs revamped in Nickel and also glazed in Tricorn Black.
