thrifted chairs

Every once in a while if you check our local Craigslist page you can find some good treasures- but it doesn't happen very often! Most of the time the price is to high or the item is no longer available. Lucky for me that didn't happen this time!!

I just happened to look at my Craigslist app at the right moment and snatched these beauties right up!
 I was so excited when I picked these up- they were not so pretty to begin with, but the bones were good! I was pretty lucky with this find, not only was the wood in great shape, but the padding was in amazing condition, no stains or tears, and best of all no smells! (Gross right?!) I took them apart as soon as I got home! Sadly it was a Sunday evening when I picked them up so the rest would have to wait. 
The Chair on the left is what they both looked like- the one on the right is what they looked like after I tore all the fabric and padding off! 

And Here is what they look like NOW!! 
Isn't it amazing what a little time, work, and paint can do?!!

 For now these ARE NOT FOR SALE! I plan on using them in my own home! But I am currently booking custom furniture jobs in May! Contact me if you'd like some more information! 

I also had to share these great end tables that I finished for a client a few weeks ago- she also found these on Craigslist for very cheap, a great find for solid wood matching end tables!

Bedroom Set Make-over

I've been busy working on this beautiful set for the past month. (Yes, it took me that long!! Between trying to heat up my garage and waiting for paint to dry it took longer than expected!) 
It came with a few challenges- like most quality pieces do- but was worth the sweat put into it!
I'm pretty excited about how it all came out… 

Here is what it all looked like originally… (I jumped into it before I got a good picture!!) 
Originally I sprayed the hardware gold, but didn't like the contrast with the white, so I ended up spraying them again with the same Antique White

This set took several coats: Sanding deglosser, bonding primer, 2-3 coats of paint, then I finished with a light polyurethane coating. 
And here it is in all it's glory...

 I added a little matching contact paper in the drawers for a added little surprise!

I used True Value EasyCare, "Heritage Home" for the end table.

It's always a little nerve-raking when I paint such beautiful pieces to begin with, but this set was worth the stress. The details and good quality wood made for a beautiful outcome!

a clock make-over!

Isn't she beautiful! Here is how it all happened!
A great friend of ours brought this clock over...

It defiantly had great potential with all of it's curves and detail. The sponge paint, forest green color, and lovely flower stencils have seen better days! I got really excited to dig in as soon as I saw it. I took out the glass, took off the doors and hinges, and then gave it a good wipe down.
First I sprayed it with a thick coat of Bonding Primer (This is key! Bonding primer is any furniture refinishers best friend! I helps keep those ugly oil stains and smells from seeping through the paint!) I prefer Lowe's Valspar Bonding Primer... Shown Here.

Then after a good 24 hours of dry time I got out my sprayer and sprayed all the trim details in a nice glossy coat of pure white. (I also used Valspar Signature/Gloss.) I've used a lot of different kinds and brands of paint, for me, the Signature Line at Lowes and the EasyCare line at Ace Hardware are by far my favorite.

Then I hand painted and rolled all the Mustard (Grove in EasyCare/Gloss). After two good coats I had to go back with a very fine tip brush and do the edges. That took quite a while and a lot of patience. This color is my go to color for a mustardy- yellow, and since it is very popular right now Ive been going through it like crazy!

I also found these perfect little knobs at Target! I couldn't wait to get them home and on this beauty!

The original clock was broken, so after I pulled out all the guts I left the hole for a new one to be installed later.

I love how the paint makes the trim look so much beefier...yes, beefier!! (Is that just a Idaho phrase?!) It means bigger, bulkier, more substantial!! ;)

And here she is in all her lovely glory! I think she loves her new make-over!

 When we dropped her off in her new spot at her home she fit in perfectly! Now she is the Belle of the Ball instead of the ugly stepsister!

Do you have something you want redone?! Or questions on redoing furniture? 
 Let us know! We would love to hear from you!
