{distressed black buffet}

IMGP3753We have been blessed with some pretty fabulous parents!

A few weekends ago they drove up to our house with this treasure strapped in the back of their truck.

We fell in love & knew we could turn it into something truly wonderful.



We love the original hardware & shape of the legs.

{Aqua Desk}

photoWe purchased this desk & hutch a few weeks ago and although it looked a little “tired” …

we loved it!

Light aqua with an antiqued glazed finish was our decision and we are so pleased with it!

IMGP0565We love Julie!

She found Refreshingly Chic a few weeks ago and we are working together to find perfect pieces for her new home.

She purchased our black distressed dresser & mirror for her Bedroom and then we began working on a few of her existing pieces.

We {love} that she is filling her home with unique, custom furniture & is able to do it economically.

She has great vision and a lot of trust & confidence in our work – which we appreciate!

hope chestThis hope chest is for her daughter, Eva’s new bedroom.

We transformed it with an antique white finish and wanted to find a way to make it extra special.

How about a personalized monogram!?



Julie also had this dresser and we refinished it to match her daughter’s hope chest.



She is pairing the dresser with one of our great mirrors!


We loved the existing hardware & decided to refinish it & add a special touch with new pink glass knobs.


This nightstand that we had in our inventory was perfect for Eva’s bedroom so she claimed it as hers!


It transformed into the perfect nightstand. We used the same pink glass knobs to coordinate with her dresser.


Julie purchased these two pieces for her Living Room and we recently refinished them in an antique tan.






Stay tuned to see our final pieces for Julie.  Hopefully she’ll share photos of her new home when she’s all settled in too!

hardware love

3od3p13lb5V55T55R0b3sbfedffa4c67217d4Last week we purchased this dresser, along with the matching nightstand, which you can see here.

We had visions of it in our own home, but it wasn’t the perfect fit (sadly!) so we are selling it.

This is a beautiful, solid piece with some magnificent hardware & plenty of storage.



We refinished in an antiqued white with slight distressing.

I think we have a new {favorite} piece!

We hope it finds a new home & it is adored and cherished as it should be.
