Update On Our Custom Bookcase

Update On Our Custom Bookcase

Here’s a little UPDATE on our BOOKCASE that we were working on yesterday! Well, we were able to get it built, as well as started staining and painting it yesterday! We can’t believe how QUICKLY it is coming together!

We just flipped our shelves over and stained the other sides, and we also got a 2nd coat of paint on our bookcase. The dark shelves are going to be a BEAUTIFUL CONTRAST to the pure white that we are using on the bookcase. We cannot wait for everything to finish drying so we can put it all together!

Custom Order Bookcase

Custom Order Bookcase

While we were waiting for our stain to dry on our barstools, we started working on a CUSTOM ORDER BOOKCASE. And I am EXCITED to report that we just about have the building portion COMPLETED! WOO HOO! We should be able to start on the PAINTING and STAINING portion of this beauty first thing TOMORROW! Can’t wait! 🙂

A New First!

A New First!

Hi Friends! We are working on a new order for the Lee Family! We built a dining table and bench set for them a few months ago, and are now building matching barstools for them. This is our very FIRST TIME building barstools, and we could not be happier with our outcome so far. We are now working on our seats. They will be inset to match their table bench. Now, a building and staining we will go! 😉

This is the set that we built and finished for the Lee family a few months ago. :)

DIY Project In The Works!

DIY Project In The Works!

ISN’T THIS GORGEOUS! This is one of our DIY projects that we were telling all of you about. This is what our new color, “In Pursuit Of Teal,” looks like after we did a bit of aging. Y’all, nothing makes us quite as happy as refinishers as this little SNEAKY PEEK here! We LOVE when we are able to take something new and make it look like a piece that has been sitting in an old barn, down a dirt road, for 100 YEARS! These are the moments we LIVE for in our business!

We will begin our sealing process today, and are so ready to get all of our pieces attached so we can show y’all are FINISHED PRODUCT! IT’S GONNA BE A BEAUTY! 🙂

What do y’all think about these CUTE LITTLE LEGS that we just picked up for our new DIY project? We are so EXCITED about this one! It is not only going to fill a NEED in our family, it is going to be OVER THE TOP ADORABLE! And it may just be the perfect thing for your family too! Don’t forget to check back with us to see what project these little legs will be going on! 

Look What We Just Picked Up! Handles!

Look What We Just Picked Up! Handles!

We just picked up our handles for our Entry Console Cabinet, and boy are they BEAUTIFUL! They tie in PERFECTLY with the RUSTIC theme of our piece. And as I have said before, we have a thing for cast iron knobs! They bring so much CHARACTER to a any piece that they are added to. And we especially LOVE adding a face plate to the back of a knob. They take up more space and make, what would have been a simple knob, look much LARGER. And 99.9% BIGGER is always BETTER. LOL! We can do that here in the SOUTH. 😉

Okay friends… Our media cabinet is really coming together now! Here is the 1st SNEAKY PEEK of the New Orleans Style Finish! And we LOOOVE IT!  We can’t wait to show y’all our finished product!

We also picked out our knobs today and will hopefully get them on tomorrow once we have finished sealing everything. 🙂

drawer and knob

This is one of our drawer fronts and our knobs. I have a thing for heavy cast iron knobs and pulls. They bring a bit of masculinity to a piece, while the scroll work on the face plate keeps it somewhat feminine. It just goes to show that opposites do go well together!

Our Stain Has Dried And Now We’re Ready For Some Paint!

Our Stain Has Dried And Now We’re Ready For Some Paint!

Hi Friends! We have allowed our stain to dry overnight on our custom media cabinet, and now it is ready for some PAINT! As gorgeous as this Minwax Special Walnut Stain is, it is going to be OUT OF THIS WORLD once we start adding some paint! This is only the 1st of many layers that this media cabinet will see. It will be unrecognizable, in a good way, by tomorrow!

Update On Our New Orleans Style Finish Media Cabinet

Hi friends! Here is a little update on the custom media cabinet that we are working on for a client. As y’all may remember, we shared a picture last week in its beginning stages. Time has flown by, and we are almost finished with the building portion of this project. Next, we will move on to the finishing portion! YAY! My favorite part! HAHA! This is when I can be CREATIVE and have some FUN with it! Our client has already given us the GREEN LIGHT to do something Unique and Different. It is going to have a super cool New Orleans Style finish. And I CAN”T WAIT to get started on it!

If any of you would like to see our first post regarding this cabinet, you can view it HERE. More pictures to come! So, stay tuned! 

*NOTE: Please excuse the doors and drawers as they are not attached yet. We currently have them sitting in their slots for the picture and will not attach until the finishing portion has been completed.*
