This solid wood table/desk was found curbside on one of our bike rides this summer. The paint was flaking, the top was dinged up, and the drawer handles were cracked and falling apart. After sanding it down, I repainted the base in a crisp white, stained the top with Jacobean-coloured stain, and added pretty new knobs. Much improved if I do say so myself!
This solid wood bedroom set needed a refresh, as it was made years ago for my customer (when he was a kid) but is now being used for his toddler daughter. The double bed (headboard, footboard, and side rails), seven-drawer dresser, nine-drawer dresser, nightstand, and mirror were all scuff sanded, primed, and painted using Benjamin Moore Advance in a semi-gloss sheen for maximum durability.
This bad boy was in ROUGH shape when I rescued him from an auction. He needed some major repair work before I could start giving him a facelift, so it’s taken me quite a while to get around to completing him. I started with a base coat of ASCP in original, then added ASCP in duck egg blue, and Aspire in wisdom and inspire. The painted finish has areas of crackle, drips, blended colours, and worn spots, giving it a unique, aged look.
