Black Antique Dresser with Mirror

This antique solid wood four-drawer dresser with a mirror was reimagined in black semi-gloss enamel for a sleek look. The original gold knobs were retained to maintain its vintage charm.

Pink Vintage Vanity Table

This vintage 1955, solid wood vanity table with mirror frame was painted with light pink chalk paint (Aspire Romance) and sealed with satin polyurethane for durability. Outfitted with new glass knobs, and chicken wire in place of the mirror for hanging jewelry or attaching notes.

Antique Wardrobe

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.

Matching Rustic Dresser

We were commissioned to update this large dresser in the same fashion as another one we did recently (purchased by the same client). The top was refinished with jacobean stain, the remainder painted with chalk paint, and the knobs updated with antique bronze spray paint.

Cute Little Side Table

Matt found this little table at the side of the road and brought it home for me to freshen up. It just needed a new coat of paint and a pretty new knob to make it look a whole lot better.

9-Drawer Dresser

This big beauty was headed for the dump when we rescued her from a friend’s parents. She was painted with Aspire mineral chalk paint in Wisdom (dark grey) and given a weathered look on the drawer fronts with a few other shades of grey as well as clear and dark wax. New handles and fleur-de-lis knobs complete the update.

Repairing an Entertainment Center (On Site)

Due to the size of the piece and the nature of the repair, it was much more cost-effective to do the work on-site over a couple of visits.

Rustic Mailbox/Display Shelf

This old piece was given a rustic overhaul with varying shades of grey chalk paint and rustic barn board wallpaper backing. I thought it would be suitable as a mailbox for a small office, however it will be used as a display shelf at an antique store in Kingsville.

Rustic Dresser

This solid wood dresser has been given a rustic overhaul. The top has been stained with Jacobean stain and the base has been chalk painted in creams and whites, then sealed with clear and dark wax. The hardware was updated with oil rubbed bronze spray paint.

Trash to Computer Desk

Here’s another piece that I found on the curb. The wooden top was scratched and peeling, but otherwise it was in good shape. I cleaned it up, gave it a fresh coat of grey acrylic and now it’s ready for it’s next chapter. What can I say…we live in a nice neighbourhood where our neighbours throw out good stuff!?!
