Vintage Cherry Dining Table

image
I scored big on this table. The owners were practically giving it away. But as you can probably imagine, that was for good reason. It was in rough, and I mean ROUGH, shape.

Coffee & End Table Set

This item has been sold IMG_0410
This set is solid wood, which is SO hard to find nowadays. I painted it with a super pale gray that has a hint of blue in it. Then lightly distressed the edges and added a little bit of gray glaze pinstriping. It’s pale enough that it can be used like a neutral.

Country Farm Table

My customer’s table was a great size for her breakfast nook, but the table had some deep scratches across the top, and the leaf was a completely different color. I filled the scratches, and then color matched it to her existing dining chairs.

Vintage Jacobean Dining Set

IMG_0059
This unbelievable Jacobean, oak dining table set had been my customer’s family for decades. It’s constructed of solid oak and meant to last several generations. But after my customer’s first unsuccessful try at staining it gray, she brought it to me and explained her vision. No more dark blue-gray. It needed to be a soft, warm, taupe-gray. so that it would blend in with her elegant dining room features. I ended up mixing a paint wash of the same paint color we used on the base, and used it to “stain” the table top. It was the perfect solution!

Beach House Chic Dining Table

IMG_7973
This table was brought to me by a customer who owned a beach house rental. It wasn’t in the worst shape ever, but it needed a little sprucing up. The problem was, it had to be renter friendly since it was going to take a beating. She chose this warm, pale gray, which is PERFECT for a beach house rental, and then I distressed the edges just a bit. That way, if the renters started beating it up, no one would know!

Solid Oak Vintage Dresser

One of my customer’s was able to get her hands on this amazing, solid oak, vintage dresser and she knew a good thing when she saw it. All it needed was a fresh color and some new knobs! She settled on this beautiful grayish green color from Sherwin Williams called Oyster Bay. After adding some new crystal knobs, the piece was a knockout!

Vintage Curio Cabinet

This amazing piece is a family heirloom. But one, unfortunately, that looked so dated my customer had no place in her home that that she wanted to display it. The solution? A pale gray blue paint, with distressed edges, and covered with a dry brushed glaze to make it look aged.

My customer had a gorgeous wall mirror with a metallic finish that had sustained some damage during a recent move. Since it wasn’t repairable we decided to go for something entirely different.

Whitewashed Cherry Table

IMG_0035
The only thing wrong with this table (if you don’t count the glitter glue and magic marker on the top), was the color. SO orangey-red! The cherry wood itself, with the noticeable grain, is absolutely gorgeous and I knew it would be a shame to cover it up if it wasn’t absolutely necessary. So that’s why I decided to strip it down to bare wood and give it a night, light, whitewashing. So Much Better!
