DIY vintage doll house

Make your own vintage doll house! Bookshelf + Legs + Paint/Paper = Doll House!

I found a small wooden bookshelf at a garage sale for $5 bucks. My client picked out small little legs from Home-depot to give this little piece flair. I added a few wall dividers and added paint. My client wants to add wall paper and little furniture so her grand-daughter can play with her dolls.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Dover White and slightly distressed.

This gal became chippier then I had expected! I love when pieces surprise you. The more I have her near me the more I fall in love. I believe she will find a great home! FOR SALE, click on over to Shop Selections for details!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams White Flour and heavily distressed! Drawer and shelves are lined with a black and white trellis print. Original hardware updated in White Flour.

Recent Highights January

Most recent projects! If you missed any of these beauties, please scroll though and check them out! I got to refinish my first antique record player cabinet (I am not counting the famous Victrola because there were no insides to that piece just his amazing shell- Click 2015 Portfolio to view him- He is the 1st one on the 2nd row).  As well as I got to do a new refinishing style- the Dipped Look, on an adorable french provincial nightstand! Check out Refinished Styles as I added this neat style for you to choose from. Of course we can’t forget that navy armoire with those amazing handles! Last but defiantly not least, a sweet bookcase that was built by my clients father many years ago when he was a young boy.

Bookcase

A bookcase that was built by my clients father when he was younger was brought in for a Second Chance. She wanted the backdrop to pop against the white and to have it match the bed frame and dresser I refinished for her back in 2015. 

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Dover White. The backing is Sherwin-Williams Black Fox and Glazed in Tricorn Black.

Vintage Record Cabinet

I’m super excited to share this piece! My friend got this antique record stereo cabinet from a family member and has plans on fixing up the insides and making it work! Until then she wanted the outside refinished and looking chic in her space.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and distressed for a perfect shabby chic feel. Original knobs cleaned.

Navy End Table

This wonderful gal is up for sale! Click on over to Shop Selections to view details.

Refinished in a Navy blue and original hardware updated in gold for a nice pop! The body and top have been distressed in the natural wear and tear areas. This piece has a small crack and chip. This is the first piece where I left her as is, instead of fixing and covering her stories, I chose to leave them hoping that someone will love it as much as I do!

Thank you. Thank you! 

To live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong

Looking back at my 2015 Portfolio confidence was my 2016 goal for SC Charms as well as in my personal life. Too many days are wasted comparing ourselves to others and wishing to be something we aren’t. I grew as a women through God, my family and my clients this year.  Everybody has their own strengths and weaknesses. When you finally accept everything you are, and aren’t, you will truly succeed.

I can look back on 2016 with pride, honor and happiness. SC Charms was  Featured in Phoenix Magazine as well as Featured in The Chippy Barn Instagram Inspiration Guide. I completed goals that I had planned for myself, such as focusing some of my energies on my blog/ website. Sharing tutorials and How-To’s…. okay, I only did a few, but that’s a start! Trying new techniques like dry brushing and acid washing a mirror. But more importantly, I had courage, integrity and confidence in all that I did. I didn’t waver. I didn’t hesitate. I inhale confidence. I exhale doubt.

So what’s next for SC Charms, you ask?

Inspire.

My goal this next year is to inspire creativity. There are many ideas surfacing for 2017. New plans being created that I am so very fortunate to be apart of. I am looking forward to a very exciting 2017!
