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)

We received a message from a new client that had recently purchased an expensive entertainment center at a discount due to some damage that had been inflicted during transit. 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. The first trip was just to see what the damage was and what I could do to help. As you can see in the photos, the top surface is actually laminated…

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!?!

Little Beachy Dresser

This five-drawer upright pine dresser was chalk painted ASCP duck egg blue and white, dry-brushed and slightly distressed, and then sealed with clear wax. I added some pretty new knobs for a rustic beachy feel.

Refinished Rocking Chair

I picked up this solid maple rocking chair at an auction last summer, and worked on it bit by bit until I was finally able to get the whole thing stripped and sanded down to bare wood. The body of the chair was primed and painted with a satin black (industrial grade) acrylic coating (from my friends at Sherwin Williams). The seat was stained with Minwax stain in Jacobean and coated with several layers of satin Nano Defense wood floor sealer. I really like the way it turned out, so…

Tiny Pedestal Table

This cute little table needed some repairs and a fresh coat of paint to make it functional again.

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.
