Lobster Trap Ottoman

This bench/ottoman was made from an old lobster trap. We love it when clients bring us odd projects to challenge our creativity! The lobster trap is actually upside down in the final product.  As you can see, the “top” of the trap is round . . . which is why I went with a simple cradle design for the base. The cradle is made from pallet wood and stained to match the aged wood of the trap itself. The ends of the base had to be custom cut to match…

Reupholstered Farmhouse Stool

This little stool was left at our house by the previous owners. It had seen better days, so I recovered the top with farmhouse fabric, and painted the legs in a steely grey acrylic.

Couch Repair

Farmhouse Conversation Set

Tiny Chair Reupholstery

Reupholstered chair

This tiny chair was no tiny task to reupholster! But it definitely looked better after an update.

Sewing Chair

Sewing chair - painting and reupholstery

I picked up this chair not realizing that it is actually a sewing chair equipped with a drawer for storing supplies and spools of thread. I gave it a face-lift with black chalk paint and a fun fabric.

Dining Set

I picked up this dining set from a local painter for a fantastic deal. The table top was stained and scratched, the leather on the chairs was cracking, and it definitely needed a face-lift. I sanded and stained the table top, reupholstered the chairs, and painted the table base and chairs. I gave it a chippy look using light grey chalk paint, but then glazed the painted surfaces with an antiquing glaze to give them a more aged look.

Custom Dining Set

Updated dining set

So a friend wanted her grandmother’s wood dining table and six chairs updated. I painted them with Aspire endless and final finish, and then reupholstered the chairs to give them a more contemporary look.

Custom Rocker

Painted and reupholstered chair

This old rocking chair was in need of help.  The joints were creaky, the finish was marred and the upholstery was dated.  Luckily the owner had a great style already in mind, and brought us the fabric she liked and requested white paint with a lightly distressed finish.  After repairing the woodwork, sanding, painting, and reupholstering, it turned out beautifully.
