Vintage Hitchcock chair bench


I found these adorable reproduction Hitchcock chairs online when I was searching for chairs suitable for making a small bench. When nestled in next to each other they make the perfect sized bench for an entry foyer, for putting on your shoes in the morning. It’s the perfect sized bench for the foyer that’s not too large.

Distressed End Table

This item has been sold
This end table was already adorable. But my customer just wanted to make it blend with her other furnishings a bit better. The stain color was making it stand out like a sore thumb. So all it needed was a bit of gray paint. She chose a warm light gray. The piece already had some great distressing and dents so we just highlighted those, to keep that farmhouse chic style!

Country dining set

This item has been sold

This 5-piece dining set had seen better days. Lots of daily use had taken a toll. Not to mention the colors were feeling a bit dated. My customer wanted to use it in her dining room and knew she wanted a white/gray combo but didn’t know exactly how to incorporate that. Our solution? To lighten it up and change the color scheme. The top and the 4 chairs were painted gray. The table skirt and pedestal went white.  We used a cool gray that complimented the darker gray on her walls.

Elegant Mahogany Dining Table

This item has been sold

This super elegant, solid mahogany dining table needed a whole new style. I accomplished that by adding a matte gray finish on the top, and a bright white on the legs and skirt.  Now it leans more towards a farmhouse chic style than a traditional style.  The chairs and bench were finished out to match.

Small pine nightstand

This little nightstand is perfect for rooms that are short on space, like a child’s room or guest bedroom. It would even be perfect as a little extra storage in a bathroom!  My customer needed it to fit in a very tight space in a guest bedroom but the original/dated finish just wasn’t working any more.
