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! 🙂

Update: Entry Console Cabinet

Update: Entry Console Cabinet

Hi Friends! Here is our progress that we have made on our entry console cabinet that we started yesterday! We stayed up later than usual last night in order to finish the building portion of this project. We have now started staining, and will soon begin adding some paint to the bottom portion of this piece. Keep an eye out for more upcoming updates on this cabinet!

To see out progress on this project, you can view it HERE in the past post.

*NOTE: Please excuse the doors, drawers, and top as they are just sitting in place at the moment and will not be attached until the finishing portion of this project has been completed.*

 

NEW ORDER: Entry Console Cabinet

NEW ORDER: Entry Console Cabinet

Hi Friends! While our sealant is currently drying on our media cabinet, we have begun work on a new order! We are still in the beginning stages, but have made some MAJOR HEADWAY in a very short period of time! This is going to be a BEAUTIFUL Entry Console Cabinet. We are EXCITED about this particular order because we have working with this sweet family before, and we look forward to working together with them again on this project! Plus, this piece is not going to just fill SPACE in their home…it is going to also fill a NEED. It is replacing our clients’ current entry table because it has proven to be UNSAFE for their young son. It is top heavy, so when he attempts to pull up on it, he could easily pull it over on top of himself, along with all of the pictures and decor currently sitting on top. By SWITCHING it out with this NEW entry console table, it not only offers more space to hold items (since it will have drawers, and a shelf underneath), but also gives them peace of mind regarding their son’s safety. 

Sneaky Peek Of The New Orleans Style Finish

Sneaky Peek Of The New Orleans Style Finish

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!

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!
