Up-Cycled Nightstands for the Colona Family

Up-Cycled Nightstands for the Colona Family

Hi friends, and happy Friday! We recently had to opportunity to work on another awesome project with the Colona family! This time, Nicole found a set of doors for $10! (WHAT A STEAL) She brought them to us, along with their nightstands, and asked that we do a little up-cycling on them!

She had the FUN IDEA to attach the doors vertically onto the backs of each nightstand, and then once we refinished them, they would add sconce lighting to the tops of each!Continue reading

From Flood Waters to Farmhouse Fab…

From Flood Waters to Farmhouse Fab…

Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! Today we have a very special up-cycle to share with all of you! We recently had the pleasure of working with the Jenkin’s family who brought us a Headboard and Armoire that had lots of water damage after being SUBMERGED in several feet of FLOOD WATER. Typically, most people would throw these types of items out and simply purchase new ones, but this set belonged to their grandmother and she was absolutely heartbroken over the loss of her beloved bedroom set. So, they brought us the pieces without her knowing, and asked that we try to salvage as much as we could and turn them into a BRAND NEW PIECE!Continue reading

Sneaky Peek of Some Cool New Handles!

What do y’all think about this cool new style of handle that we picked up for a clients’ furniture? Patrick was just acting a little silly with them, but they will be upside down when we add them to our pieces. And they are going to be SO PRETTY! The pieces that we are working on are actually going on some new furniture for a sweet baby girl’s room. It will be a room fit for a PRINCESS!

The color theme for this set, as well as the entire room is so GIRLY and PERFECT! We are using a few shades of gray, light pink, and white lace. We simply cannot wait to see all of the pieces finished and together in their new home awaiting the arrival of Princess Penelope! She is going to be so perfect, y’all! More pictures to come soon!

Happy Friday, Friends! We’ve got a BRAND SPANKIN’ NEW Scrap Pile Project for y’all this week! All of you will get a little peek inside our bathroom! YIKES! This is actually going to be just the 1st of a few fun little projects from our recent master bathroom refinish that we are going to share with all of you. And they are all FABULOUS and FUNCTIONAL all rolled into one! (It doesn’t get much better than that, my friends!)

The great thing about this particular scrap pile project is that it is FAST, SIMPLE, and super EASY ON THE POCKETBOOK. And not to mention, it only took us about 2 days to have completed (factoring in drying times), and didn’t cost us a single PENNY! That means this is a very doable weekend project for BEGINNERS and PROS alike!

For those of you who are new followers, here is a little info behind our scrap pile projects…. Our rules are simple: We use scraps from old projects, or pieces that we have gotten for FREE or LITTLE TO NO MONEY. And once we start, we have to use materials that we already have here. So no running to the store or spending any money! It can be a challenge, but we always have lots of fun and have a beautiful new treasure when it’s all said and done! So, here we go…Continue reading

Duncan Phyfe Dining Table Repair & Refinish for the McBrayer Family

Duncan Phyfe Dining Table Repair & Refinish for the McBrayer Family

Hi Friends and Happy Tuesday! Today we sharing a stunning repair/refinish of a GORGEOUS Duncan Phyfe dining table that we recently refinished for the McBrayer family. Mrs. McBrayer initially contacted us because their dining room table was almost unusable due to the poor condition of the legs and feet, and was in disparate need of a little TLC. They were splitting and separating because of the age of the table. You see, this beauty was a family heirloom that Mrs. McBrayer’s grandmother passed down to her. So, she was not planning on getting rid of it any time soon. This meant that it was imperative that it was fixed as soon as possible before the extent of the damage WORSENED.

We began by fully stripping, sanding, and cleaning the entire table. Once we had that completed, we were able to get to work on our repairs. This part was the most TEDIOUS because we had to be extremely GENTLE because the wood was very DELICATE while CAUTIOUSLY removed the legs and all of the old glue. Also several legs were broken, and the pillar holding each was cracked and separating as well. Continue reading

Bedroom Set Refinish for the Arceneaux Family

Bedroom Set Refinish for the Arceneaux Family

Hi Friends, and Happy Monday! Today we are sharing a recent bedroom set refinish that we completed for the wonderful Arceneaux family! They have held on to this beautiful set for over 20 YEARS! And since their are building a new home, and plan on bringing this set with them, it was time to SPRUCE IT UP A BIT!

Since the tops were still in nice condition, they asked that we simply refinish the bottoms. And as for the paint color, they chose a gorgeous color called Linen. This is actually the same color that we used on another bedroom set that we recently refinished for the Mire family. It is the PERFECT shade of “Off White.” Not too dark, and not too light.
