Pretty Little Dresser

I decided to do something pretty and romantic with this little four-drawer pine dresser circa the 1970s. The dresser was painted using Aspire mineral chalk paint in Romance and Eminence and ASCP in Duck Egg Blue. The legs were painted silver to match the new glass knobs. Oh, and I did a little inspirational wooden sign to match. 🙂

Another Little Bedside Table

Here’s another cute little cherry bedside table that I picked up for a steal. The top and drawer were refinished with a light walnut stain, and the base was painted with Aspire mineral chalk paint in Hope. I added some bling with some pretty hand-painted knobs.

Custom Refinished Hall Table

This table had seen better days when I was tasked with restoring it. After much sanding and bleaching, the stain on the bottom shelf was lightened, but could not be permanently removed. As the client didn’t want to replace the veneer from the shelf, we masked it as best we could with a slightly darker stain and satin finish.

Oak Hall Table

This solid oak beauty originally stained orange was given an update with crisp white acrylic on the base and jacobean stain on the top.

Various Furniture

I really like the look of refinished wood combined folk art oatmeal chalk paint that has been slightly distressed. I’ve done multiple pieces using this combination recently.

More Signs!

Yes, I know…our house has entirely too many signs.

Custom Refinished Dining Set

Here’s a recently completed dining room set (table, 6 chairs and small buffet) that we sanded/stripped, stained and refinished to completely update the look for a lovely couple in LaSalle.

Dining Set Overhaul

This set was given an interesting colour combination, with duck egg blue chalk paint on the table base, black satin on the chairs, and jacobean on the table top.
