Sneaky Peek: New Farmhouse Dining Set

Sneaky Peek: New Farmhouse Dining Set

Happy Saturday, Friends! Check out who is finally starting to feel better! He has been going STIR CRAZY while recouping from his most recent procedures, and has been itching to get BACK IN THE SADDLE! Today, we are working on sanding, and preparing this newly finished table top on a brand new 9 foot farmhouse dining table! Come to think of it, this may be the LONGEST table we have built to date! 

This top will soon get a coat of GORGEOUS Weathered Gray stain! Which, we are extra excited about because we haven’t had the opportunity to do this particular color on a dining table top before. SO… I guess you could say there are a lot of firsts going on around here today. And they are ALL GOOD THINGS! 

We can’t wait to share our finished product with all of you. So, be sure to come back and check out pictures of our soon to be completed dining set! In the meantime, have a BLESSED weekend! 🙂

Our Schoolroom Renovation

Our Schoolroom Renovation

Hi Friends! With our school year coming to a close, we thought we would share some of the CHANGES and UPGRADES that we have made to our space over the past 8 months! We feel that our space will probably be one that is every-changing as we continue our homeschooling journey, but for the time being we are very pleased with how much we have accomplished this school year.

Since this was our very first year of homeschooling, we kind of JUMPED in with both feet forward. We didn’t know exactly what would work best for us, and fully expected this to be a year of TRIALS and ERRORS. This would be our year of really learning what would work best for our family, and what we were going to have to tweak and change a bit before getting into our groove.Continue reading

Scrap Pile Project: Hall Tree

Scrap Pile Project: Hall Tree

Happy Thursday, Friends! One of our most favorite things to do around here is Up-cycling. In this case, we reused some old scraps, paint, stain, and hardware from old project that had been piling up in our shop. We absolutely LOVE to save all of our usable scraps for future projects, especially when they can be re-purposed into something NEW! Why waste if we don’t have to?

So, we got to work gathering all of our scraps that would have otherwise been BURNED or THROWN AWAY. We were even able to pull together a few decorative pieces that we purchased over the years…. but never found the right use for them… UNTIL NOW! They may have not seemed like much at the time, but once put together, they became a MASTERPIECE!Continue reading

Mire Bedroom Set Refinish

Mire Bedroom Set Refinish

Happy Tuesday, Friends! We have a little something to share with all of you on this #TransformationTuesday! And when we say transformation, WE MEAN IT! We took an outdated oak bedroom set and gave it a Classy French Country feel that is sure to brighten, and open up its old space.

We recently completed a bedroom set refinish for the Mire family. Before we start, we just have to say that we love all of our clients; but Holly and Timmie were by far some of the easiest, most laid back clients that we have ever worked with. They basically dropped everything off to us, picked out their stain and paint colors, and said,”Do whatever you want, I trust you.” Now, that always makes me a little nervous, as I always want to make sure that we exceed our clients’ expectations by completing their pieces how THEY WANT. But Holly was 100% serious! She basically left the finishing up to Patrick and I! EEEPPP! 😉Continue reading

Rock Out With This Fun Boys Rocker Refinish

Rock out with this fun boys rocker refinish…

We recently refinished these ADORABLE little rockers for our client, Ms. Laura. Ms. Laura had been holding onto these adorable rockers for quite some time, and since she now has 2 handsome little grandsons, she asked us to refinish them for the boys as a gift. We have been anxiously waiting to post pictures of our finished products, but they were a surprise and we didn’t want to spoil it for her daughter, Tiffani (since she follows our page), and her 2 sons. Continue reading

Do What You Love

Do What You Love

Ain’t that the TRUTH! 😉

We love getting to have our babies help up in the shop… supervised, of course! They get to learn so many awesome things from watching us build, repair, refinish, and up-cycle. And they are so PROUD of themselves when they get to see the finished product that they were able to help with.

At the end of the day, it is all about family and doing what God specifically CREATED you to do! As they say… “If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.”

(P.S. For our lawyers and doctors out there.. we love ya too!”)

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
