This table was given to me by my friend Rich, when he moved out of his old place. It is thin veneer, so i had to be really gentle sanding it down. Thankfully the old finish had been damaged enough to remove quickly. I used cherry stain coated with poly in some parts of the grain and only polyurethane in others. This sold pretty much instantly. 😉
I upcycle, refinish, repair, restore, repurpose, & reupholster furniture and much more. You can view my portfolio here. I am dedicated to saving pieces from the garbage pile, and really love the extra challenging ultra beat up stuff. If anybody would like me to refunk some pieces, let me know. I pick-up, deliver, and even do same-day in house jobs (from sanding to hand painting and sealing). Reasonable rates and 100% attention to detail. Custom requests are encouraged! I am super friendly and I love to FINISH! Feel free to join our FB page and start a conversation! (I also take baby furniture and refinish for free to needy mothers statewide – I am always accepting donations and families in need, just hit me up!).
Some of my recent jobs include:
Kitchen Cabinet Refinishing
Repairing DIY jobs
Prepping furniture for customer to paint themselves
Creative Painting (distressing, antiquing, glazing, stenciling, hand painting, stain stenciling, shaby chic, clean and modern, mid century modern furniture redesign)
Stencil Floor Designs
Custom painted jewelry boxes
Custom painted trunks, etc.
I am pretty much open to doing anything 😉 So, get at me! I look forward to discussing your ideas with you! Just shoot me a message and I will get back to you ASAP.
This bench is part of a dining set that I am working on for a lady in town. I sanded it down, primed and painted parts (flat black), and stained the accent areas (miniwax dark walnut). Afterwards, i gave it all a few coats of poly. I really love the way that this turned out. It looks so much cleaner now.
This coffee table belongs to a lady in my town. She and her husband purchas it fifteen years ago. It was one of the very first “grown up” pieces that they ever purchased, and it holds sentimental value for them. This is always my favorite type of work! Easy inspiration. When i picked it up, it had been chewed on by their dog and colored all over by their kids. Thankfully the previous finish had been worn down a lot, so sanding this one was a breeze. Once I got it down to bare wood, i applied some wood conditioner. After that, I restained the top in miniwax dark walnut and sealed it with a few coats of varuthane triplethick. That stuff is pretty magical. When Deb’s husband came to pick this up (he is a police officer and he showed up in uniform, which nearly gave my husband a heat attack), he said that it looks even better than when they first got it. That made me feel so awesome inside. I really love my job.
