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

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

Dining Room Set Refinish For Ms. Laura

Dining Room Set Refinish For Ms. Laura

Hi Friends, and Happy Monday! Today we are are sharing a GORGEOUS antique dining  set refinish for one of our sweet clients, Ms. Laura! We actually have several pieces that we recently repaired and refinished for her, but we will separate them into multiple posts to make things a bit easier.

Ms. Laura’s daughter, Tiffani, initially found us a few years back when she needed her dining set refinished. It was a very sentimental set for their family since it had been passed down to her from her grandmother. Since then, we have had the honor of building and refinishing several pieces for the homes of both of these wonderful ladies. Most recently, we refinished several pieces for Mrs Laura, including the dining set that we are going to reveal to all of you today!Continue reading

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

The Case Of The Un-Matching Set

The Case Of The Un-Matching Set

Happy Friday, Friends! Do y’all happen to remember the SNEAKY PEEK in Lavish Green that we were working on last week? Well, here is the BEAUTIFUL set of pieces that we were working on! This set definitely proves that not all pieces have to be from a matching set in order for them to all go well together in 1 space!

Our clients initially came to us with these pieces, and 3 out of 4 of them held SENTIMNTAL value since they had been passed down through Mrs. Stein’s family to her. The buffet originally belonged to her mother, and the end tables belonged to her grandparents. Since our client’s living room and kitchen area are open to one another, they decided to have all of the pieces refinished to MATCH.Continue reading
