It Is 11:00 p.m. On A Sunday Night, And We Are Happily Building A Desk

We are Patrick and Jessaca Chelette, and we are SELF PROCLAIMED NIGHT OWLS! It is almost 11:00 p.m. on a Sunday night, and we are still up WORKING! Except this time, we are working on a new project for our kiddos! And we are majorly CRUNCHED FOR TIME! But…we tend to work BEST when we are on a strict time frame. Continue reading

We are still in shock about this one since we COULD NOT even purchase the screws alone for $8.50! Continue reading

Our Entry Console Cabinet Is Finished

Our Entry Console Cabinet Is Finished

Happy Tuesday, friends! Take a look at what we have finished! The Braud Family’s gorgeous ENTRY CONSOLE CABINET! We finished this piece to match a coffee table and end table set that we built for them a while back. Since all three pieces will we located in the same space, they will flow nicely with one another.

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! 🙂

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. 😉

If you are just joining us, and would like to see our journey on this piece until now, you can view our progress HERE and HERE.

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. 

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!

Don’t forget to check back with us to see our next update on this beauty! If you would like to see our journey with this project so far, you can view our previous posts HERE and HERE
