Steamer Trunk with Victorian Arch Top

This steamer trunk belongs to my clients grandmother and has been past down the generations. She wanted to give her heirloom a makeover to match her home and style.

Refinishing the inside in a brown stain using Wood Classics Weathered Teak and sealing will keep the inside healthy for more years to come. I blended three colors for the body to create a bohemian technique. I used Sherwin-Williams Open Air, Lakeshore and Oceanside. Once completed I glazed her in a mixture of both Tricorn Black and Oceanside for a darker aged blue. Highlighting a few spots with Open Air on the base and Victorian Arch Top really popped this beauty out!

Dresser

I had this dresser up for customization and a returning client asked to have this piece replace the one she bought from me back in 2014. Her daughter will be 6 in a few weeks and is upgrading her room with more storage.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams DE color Swiss Coffee and distressed. Stained the top in Minwax Weathered Teak. Added new crystal knobs my client purchased.

Cathedral Media Buffet

Where do I start with this one!? At my clients color consultation she shared with me the interior decorations that were on order for her living room. Shades of blues, greys and browns. From a new couch, pillow shams, rugs and more, I recommended using Sherwin-Williams Tin Lizzie, a soft grey with a blue huge. Glazed in a dark grey using Rock Bottom which also has a complement huge to Tin Lizzie. I picked up these Nickel Celtic knobs from Hobby Lobby that caught my clients eye. Staining the top in Minwax Special Walnut completes his look! Not only is this handsome fellow large but super heavy with 6 large drawers inside the four cathedral like doors. Totally in love with him!

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.
