Vicky’s Bombay chest

Vicky has been eyeing a green Bombay chest from Pottery Barn but it was a bit pricey!

Her daughter found this one on Craigslist and told her she knew someone who would work some magic on it.

{thanks Savannah!}


We found a new green paint and quickly got to work! We love the finished product and look forward to using our new color again soon!


Enjoy Vicky!!

{our} media console

We found this dresser in our neighborhood a few months ago and knew it would be perfect to replace our Ikea media console!


It collected dust in our garage for quite a while as we worked on client projects!

One of our most loyal clients, Dara, was in need of a media console and liked our Ikea one! We gave her a great price and she gave us the incentive to refinish this dresser for ourselves.

What a treat!



We refinished the bottom in Antique White and Tyler did a fabulous job of staining the top with a custom stain color he fashioned up.

Tyler removed the drawers that were behind the doors and replaced it with adjustable shelves.

This will allow us to use our console over the years, even if we get new equipment in different sizes.


Our TV equipment is hidden nicely behind the doors.


Tyler removed the wood backing behind the metal grates and replaced it with fabric so we can use the remotes with the doors closed.


We love how this piece turned out and know we will enjoy it for many many {many} years!!

Lela’s nursery

IMGP4776This spacious dresser was purchased for sweet Lela’s nursery.

It has ample storage and will provide plenty of surface area for a changing table.

Our client selected antique white for this dresser & we refinished the hardware for her.



We also refinished the matching nightstand for Lela.



This set also includes a pair of mirrors and lingerie chest, which will be refinished in a fun color to add interest to the room.

Stay tuned to see the finished pieces!

We refinished this desk for Kathy and love the decision to refinish in Antique White with a wood stained top.



Rosemary purchased this desk we found a few months ago and selected our Peacock Blue finish!


Perfect for this fun desk!


We hope you ladies enjoy!

chest & nightstands

tn (2)Our lovely parents spotted this set of furniture at a local estate sale and immediately started calling & emailing us photos.  We of course said “yes” we want them!

This piece is a great combo of a wardrobe and chest of drawers. Plenty of storage, beautiful hardware, great detail and a structurally sound piece of furniture.



We refinished in our most popular, Antique White and it has turned out to be one of our most favorite pieces.

(yes, we say that a lot, but it’s true!)



The pair of matching nightstands have already been purchased by a client.

We painted them in Antique White …


Then refinished again in our {new} Snow White finish to better suite our client’s needs.
