Dinnette Table Before & After

On August 12, 2011 By

This little oak table came to us as a set with the Zoo Chairs – it wasn’t in horrible condition but the original finish was well worn and the client wanted to get away from the traditional look of the table. So we decided to strip the top of […]

Lovely Curvy White Coffee Table

On August 10, 2011 By

This little coffee table came to us from a client that wanted it re-done for her daughter who was moving for college. Since we had a deluge of furniture, I didn’t get a chance to snap the before picture – but just imagine this all brown and neglected. Like anything else that’s been […]

Zoo Chairs: Before & After

On August 8, 2011 By

These chairs came to us from a customer that wanted them lightened up – for her daughter that was in college. The chairs needed some minor repairs (and need new fabric) but we fixed them right up and turned them into a nice matching pair.

The zoo fabric isn’t so bad with the new paint […]

Ultra Distressed Dresser

On July 20, 2011 By

 

This antique dresser was another find of ours from an estate sale a few weeks ago. This little gem has working locks, the original wood casters and is made from solid oak. I didn’t get a chance to snap a before picture of it – but just imagine a standard brown dresser. I sprayed […]

Cool Curvy Bean Desk

On July 19, 2011 By

She’s cute, she’s curvy and she’s been sold. Sorry folks, this desk never even made it to our available to be refinished page before she was claimed.

Made of burl wood – this was a hard one to paint – but we had to! The top of the desk was badly damaged with some seriously […]

Another Buffet Monday

On July 18, 2011 By

Seen this one before? Deja Vu? This buffet reminds me of something my mom used to say to us – “I brought you into this world and I can take you out out of it and make another one just like you”. Well folks, that’s what I had to do. After I sold Continue Reading

This is one of the pieces that we found at the same estate sale where my office storage buffet came from. You can see why we ran after this one – throwing elbows and everything.

In fact, this piece was sold before I even finished repairing it. The top was in pretty bad shape, so […]

This table wasn’t in bad shape to start with – minus the huge scratch on it. The color was brown – not an ugly brown but just basic. We found this piece in the back of a clearance section at a furniture store. I spotted it in the far corner, climbed over piles of stuff […]

As I’ve mentioned before, Lauren & I got extremely lucky when we sold our home because the buyer actually bought 99% of our furniture. Well, when I say lucky – I mean Lauren was extremely happy to be able to start everything fresh and get stuff she actually liked and not my previously owned bachelor […]

We’ve all seen these hutch/buffets before. Most likely at a Goodwill – or sometime during your childhood. Sorry about the before picture – I started getting into this piece before I remembered to grab the camera.

This piece came from the same set of stuff we picked up with the Continue Reading
