French Provincial Chest of Drawers

Color has been everywhere over here! I had this French Provincial Chest of Drawers up for customization over at In the Studio, and she didn’t sit long! A returning client grab her up and is placing her in her bedroom. She has a lovely quilt that has many beautiful colors that she wanted to incorporate.

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Haven and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. The original hardware revamped in Sunny Veranda and also glazed in Well-Bred Brown.

Antique Buffet- 100th Piece YTD

I am so excited to finally get to my 100th piece of refinished furniture year to date! This year I have had the pleasure to refinish many huge pieces that had anywhere from three upwards to six individual sections to create one gorgeous piece of furniture. Naturally I didn’t include those individual items, but rather counted each piece as a whole.

Browsing through my Portfolio I can’t help but be smitten from all the lovely creations- most of them client own pieces. Not only did I pour my sweat, heart and soul in each one; creating the image that each client had for their particular piece has always been a rewarding adventure.

Without further adieu let me introduce to you my 100th piece of furniture for 2017!!! An antique buffet my client has brought to Arizona from Denver. Back in her day this gal had tall legs, they were cut down about forty years ago so this piece could be used as a chest. But before the sensation swept the nation with using amazing statement pieces for Tv Entertainment Units, my clients family did just that and has many memories with this piece throughout the years. After my clients mother’s’ passing, she inherited her old friend and had Second Chance Charms refinish her so she could match her home decor and style. Wonderful past memories and making future ones to come- this gal gets to keep going looking better than ever!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Whirlpool for a soothing pop of color. Glazed in Well-Bred Brown to show off all the glorious details this gal has to offer. Stained her lovely top in Dark Walnut for some originality. finished her off with cleaning up her hardware and keeping the original pitia as much as possible.

Tv Entertainment Unit

Oh how I have missed the keys of my computer. This morning I sat down drinking my pumpkin spice coffee enjoying the gorgeous cool morning Arizona breeze on my patio, I realized that I have not posted in 12 days.

That doesn’t mean that I wasn’t working- oh how I am excited to share with you some new pieces that were transformed! Most of my time was taken up by a massive Tv Entertainment Unit for a client.

After a horrible house fire, my client was able to save some of her items. Now that her house is being rebuilt she figured now was the perfect time to start fresh with her style and decor. Here is a before picture of her unit!

This unit was too big to fit in my studio for staging. So I waited patiently on pins and needles today waiting for photos from my client to share! I did my best taking some in my home to share, but it just wasn’t the same. I finally got her photos and I am sharing now! Oh my heart! I’m so in love!

Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Snowbound and glazed in Well-Bred Brown. Took out the glass doors and added chicken wire for a Farmhouse Chic look. Revamped all original hardware and chicken wire in Oil Rubbed Bronze.

Veneer Desk Top

Do you recall yesterday’s custom piece, Three-Piece Computer Desk? To complete my clients home office he wanted his generic veneer office desk top to look as good as his other pieces! When dealing with veneer painting it can leave the piece to look very dull and a solid boring pile of yuck especially on a desk top. There isn’t wood grain, texture or detail.

To change things up I used two colors, the same ones on his other office pieces to tie everything together. Now once what was a simple plain top now has character!
Refinished in Sherwin-Williams Well-Bred Brown and dry brushed with Agreeable Gray.
