Antique Dining Chairs

Three more custom chairs finished! Two more to go.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Software and glazed in Cyberspace. My client picked out a cream and grey damask fabric from Joanns Fabric Store. Finally adding a dark grey cord to match and to finish them off!

“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.

Antique Trunk, Peter Rabbit

This gorgeous antique trunk used to be my clients grandmothers. The inside is laced with adorable Peter Rabbit fabric.

Seriously, I love her

Family heirlooms are my jam! I say this often, and I don’t get tired of saying it over and over again; I KNOW how important these pieces are to you and your family. So not only do I take extra care in these family pieces, but I do pride myself on making them last for more generations to come.

My client wanted me to do a finish that would match an existing piece in her home that will share the space with her mothers hutch. She kept all glass shelves at her home along with the glass decorative door inserts. Check out the before picture to get an idea of what this piece will look like with those lovely add on’s installed back on!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Pure White and distressed heavily. I went into certain spots and did a white wash to lessen the wood showing through. Im excited for this piece and to do more techniques like it in the future! Hardware is left original and cleaned up.

Antique Hutch

FACT: Family heirlooms are special. I have refinished and restored many custom pieces throughout the years, however, family heirlooms are close to my heart.

I love restoring and refinishing these pieces for various reasons. The main one for me; YOU chose me to carefully re-love your piece. What an honor! I pride myself on wanting to not only make YOU proud of your heirlooms, but also your family members who are still with us today, as well as the original owners who are looking down from heaven. Trust me, the stories these pieces carry are tremendous, but giving them another page to their story is what makes them continued to be past down for more generations to enjoy!

This client piece was passed down from great grandmother, to grandmother, to mother and now to daughter. I cant express enough how beautiful that is in itself.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Cityscape. Glazed in Pepercorn. The inside and gorgeous legs have been stained in General Finishes Java.

Antique Telephone Chair

Past down the generations my client wanted something special to be done to her antique telephone chair. She sent me a few pieces that she loved of mine that had the bohemian technique style. My mind started swirling!

Refinished the base in Sherwin-Williams Grays Harbor. Blending both Grays Harbor and Secret Cove only on the desk curved part, both front and back, and highlighting in Fleur de sel gave a dramatic effect. Excitingly, I found upholstery from Joanns in the same color as Fleur de sel for the chair cushion! Perfection!!!

I love how this antique telephone desk chair turned out!

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!
