Project Part 2. REVEAL.

My huge project is finally finished! LOVE how it turned out. This set is huge, 8 chairs and a removable leaf. Not to mention it's heavy, solid, chunky wood. I love all the detail in this table! Check my post just below for more of it's description in Part 1 :)
 Top of table painted a chocolate brown, called Bison Brown in Behr. Chairs and base of table are Navajo white also in Behr. This project took me nearly 2 weeks! Distressing chairs definitely were the biggest project. I'm super particular in my distressing! I had to grab all the detail. My client brought me the fabric she picked out on the chairs and I went to town recovering those, definitely with the help of my hubbs. I always need him for a few things! {Love his handy skills}. I'm just glad this table is done, and glad to have another happy client!


My latest HUGE project. Part 1.

Here's the before picture of my Table Revamp. I bought this huge chunky antique table, hoping to refinish it and put it in my house. Once I got it home though, there was no way it'd be fitting in my kitchen! So I just listed and sold it to a client who wanted a custom refinish job as well. Loved that since I got to still refinish the table :) It's huge! 8 Chairs, and a leaf and just solid heavy wood. You don't come by many of these tables! With all the detail in the legs and chairs, it was definitely going to be amazing!

{{Black and Beautiful}}

Picked up a few of these lovely french end tables, custom refinished for a good friend :)

 Black and Beautiful! Here they're pictured with their original hardware, which were pretty vintage.

Top view:

We changed up the vintage knobs and added some chunky clear glass knobs from good ol' Hobby Lobby. They definitely prettied them up a ton!! Love how these turned out!

Vintage Rocker Refurb'd

Remember this little gem?? I picked up this vintage rocker off Craigslist for $10, wanting to spice it up for my little girl. Well I finally got some pics snapped of the final product...I had my boys sand it all down and unscrew the seat getting it prepped for paint. I used a Behr paint primer combo, in a sea blue color..not too bright. After a couple coats, distressed it where I wanted it. Grabbed me some Chevron fabric from good ol' Hobby Lobby. Stapled that right over the old cover. Screw it back on. Done! Simple & Easy Refurb. And my little girl LOVES her new chair!

{{a whole new chair}}

I think she likes it :)

All finished!

Custom Order: Farmhouse Kitchen Table+ Chairs Revamp.

 I put my husbands handy skills to work on this Farmhouse Table. It was built for a client as a custom order. She picked the size and paint color then we went to work :) After the hubbs built it {WITH Removable legs might I add} he stained the top in a BLACK GLOSS Minwax stain. After that, we taped it off, and painted the base and legs Navajo White By Behr. Then to dirty it up a bit, I threw on some Antiquing glaze all over..wiping more in areas than others to give it a good rustic look. The table is huge! 6'x4' and could not be more solid. 

Next she brought me these BEAUTIFUL chairs she bought off craigslist :) They definitely were rickity/ old/ and not in good shape at all! So I definitely fixed that and gave them a facelift.

Chairs After! Painted Navajo White Behr Paint/Primer Duo, Distressed all over, then recovered with this super trendy Red Chevron :) The chairs look AMAZING under that table!! Even my little boys were saying, these chairs look so much better mom, they don't look crappy anymore. haha, they're definitely right :)

Turned out awesome and I'm excited for her new dining set!

This dresser is HUGE!!

My friend brought me her dresser {of course I forgot the before picture}. I definitely had fun doing this revamp. Definitely tedious, but the result was amazing. Prepped the dresser first, then went with my fav, Behr Paint/Primer in one in the shade of her choice. After 2 coats {or so} I distressed all edges, and added a dark antique-ing glaze. This darkened up the color a bit, making it appear a little more "dirty", and makes all the edges darker and stand out more. Then I brushed on a gold glaze all over, wiped off leaving more in some areas than others. This took a while to get it looking exactly how I wanted. Just the right amount of shine on all sides/edges and drawers. Turned out super chic and elegant, but shabby at the same time :) I'm so in love with this, that I'm doing it again...this time on my own daughters dresser. The color choice on this piece couldn't have been more perfect!
