Dining Room Set Refinish For Ms. Laura

Dining Room Set Refinish For Ms. Laura

Hi Friends, and Happy Monday! Today we are are sharing a GORGEOUS antique dining  set refinish for one of our sweet clients, Ms. Laura! We actually have several pieces that we recently repaired and refinished for her, but we will separate them into multiple posts to make things a bit easier.

Ms. Laura’s daughter, Tiffani, initially found us a few years back when she needed her dining set refinished. It was a very sentimental set for their family since it had been passed down to her from her grandmother. Since then, we have had the honor of building and refinishing several pieces for the homes of both of these wonderful ladies. Most recently, we refinished several pieces for Mrs Laura, including the dining set that we are going to reveal to all of you today!Continue reading

Time Spent In Our Workshop

Time Spent In Our Workshop

Patrick’s brother sent us this yesterday, and I think it is safe to say he has spent MORE THAN ENOUGH time with us in the shop. He has our workshop habits down pat because this graph depicts EXACTLY what goes on around here on a daily basis.

Now, off to find that MISSING TOOL I was looking for…

Our Unexpected Surprise

Our Unexpected Surprise

This past weekend, we got a very UNEXPECTED SURPRISE! One of our sweet clients contacted us last year asking us to repair and refinish an antique entry table that she saved from the rubble of an old local plantation home. At the time, she was not exactly sure about the look she wanted to go with for this piece and said that she would get back to us once she made her decision.

Well, she contacted us again last Friday asking if she could drop it off to us the following morning. Once she arrived, we stepped outside to get it unloaded, and to our SURPRISE…. Continue reading

The Case Of The Un-Matching Set

The Case Of The Un-Matching Set

Happy Friday, Friends! Do y’all happen to remember the SNEAKY PEEK in Lavish Green that we were working on last week? Well, here is the BEAUTIFUL set of pieces that we were working on! This set definitely proves that not all pieces have to be from a matching set in order for them to all go well together in 1 space!

Our clients initially came to us with these pieces, and 3 out of 4 of them held SENTIMNTAL value since they had been passed down through Mrs. Stein’s family to her. The buffet originally belonged to her mother, and the end tables belonged to her grandparents. Since our client’s living room and kitchen area are open to one another, they decided to have all of the pieces refinished to MATCH.Continue reading

Gorgeous In Gray Dining Set

Gorgeous In Gray Dining Set

Happy Tuesday, Friends! Take a peek at this fabulously ELEGANT gray dining table set that we finished up for the Cruz family! This dining set was initially brought to us as a refinish, but upon closer inspection, we realized that the top was a very slick veneer and the paint would unfortunately not adhere well to it. So, the table ended up turning into a NEW BUILD and chairs were a REFINISH. Continue reading

Paint Party at 10:30 p.m.

This is HOW WE ROLL during the holidays here at Chelette’s Decor & More. We have NO set business hours. In fact, business hours of 9-5 are NON-EXISTENT during the months of November and December. So, working at 10:30 pm on orders is a MUST for us.

And it may SURPRISE y’all to hear that we are OKAY with that! We are so BLESSED by all of our clients every holiday season (new and returning), and are beyond THANKFUL for the orders. So, we slap on a BIG OLE SMILE every morning and excitedly take on what the day has to offer. A positive or negative attitude is all in your mind! And we HAPPILY CHOOSE to be POSITIVE! 

Now… back to our PAINTING PARTY! YAY! Have a blessed night friends! 🙂

New, Custom Rails And Bed Repair

Hi friends! We recently had some clients contact us because they were in a bit of a PREDICAMENT. They had recently ordered a shutter style bed from another company, and quickly realized that the rails we 2 inches TOO SHORT. So, their mattress unfortunately DID NOT FIT.

So, they brought everything to us for some BRAND NEW, CUSTOM RAILS! This bed had a very specific rail system that had to be HANDMADE in order to ensure a proper fit.Continue reading
