Rock Maple Captain’s Chairs

This item has been soldIMG_9973
This was a major score. A set of 2 captain’s chairs in super heavy rock maple. Overall they’re in great shape. A few scratches and nicks….the downside was really the fabric. The foam beneath the fabric felt hard and crumbly to the touch. And when I finally removed the 2 layers of hideous fabric I discovered that the foam had completely disintegrated and turned to sand. Blech!

Pine End Table

This item has been sold IMG_8047This little beauty didn’t need much.  It’s solid wood, and very sturdy.  But the orange stain really needed to go.  I updated it with a bright white (Benjamin Moore’s Chantilly Lace), highlighted the details with gray glaze, and then lightly distressed the edges.  Now you don’t have to worry so much when your 4 year runs his toys into it over and over again.  He’ll be adding to the patina!

Duncan Phyfe table & 6 chairs

This item has been sold IMG_8575
Vintage Duncan Phyfe style mahogany pedestal table. This table was in relatively good condition when I found it, so all it needed was a little freshening up. I did this by stripping the top and giving it a rich, dark Kona stain, and painting the pedestals with a pale beige. I made the details pop out by adding a mocha glaze and distressing the edges just a tiny bit. Now this table is ready for all your family gatherings.  It includes a 12″ leaf so you can easily fit up to 8 people!

The matching set of 6 vintage chairs coordinate perfectly. They have also been updated with a richer stain, new foam and gorgeous yellow and cream fabric.  The set includes 1 captain’s chair with arms, and 5 side chairs.

Pottery Barn Dining Set

This item has been sold IMG_7713
I just found this (soon-to-be) amazing Pottery Barn table and chairs set. Yes, it’s seen better days, but by the time I’m done you won’t even recognize it anymore. The rush seat bases aren’t fixable, sadly, so the current plan is to make new seat bases and stain them, and paint the remainder of the chairs as well as the skirt and legs of the table. The tabletop will be stained to match the seat bases.

Bombay Foyer Table

This item has been sold Teal Foyer Table
I’m in love with this little entry foyer table, with it’s rope legs, and pineapple details. I chose Teal Lake for it, after using this color on a recent Custom Order and loving it!  I knew that some mocha glaze layered on top would really make the details stand out.  This would be perfect in your entry foyer, in a hallway or maybe even a nightstand in your guest bedroom.

Pine Country Table w/Drawer

This item has been sold IMG_7340
This country pine kitchen table, from Southern Furniture, was updated with some canvas colored paint, a tiny bit of distressing, and a really cute, vintage looking knob on the drawer.  I painted  these chairs the same color, and they make the perfect set for your kitchen or breakfast nook!

This table has a handy little drawer in one end. It’s the perfect place to stash your napkins so that they’re within reach, but out of sight.

Maple nightstand

This item has been sold MapleNightstandI really wish you could see the pretty color of this solid maple nightstand.  It’s a super soft blueish-green, but the addition of the mocha glaze makes it look a little white in the pics.  I distressed the edges, just lightly, wear you would normally get a little wear n’ tear over the years.  And the whole piece was waxed, to give it a nice soft sheen.  New pulls and knobs brings the style into the new millennium!

Large nightstand / Small dresser

This item has been sold IMG_7310
When I saw this dresser I knew it would make the perfect nightstand. The trend right now is to use small dressers as nightstands, and to mix them with other small tables. To go for the mismatched look. This small dresser would be a perfect fit in a bedroom that’s going for this look!

I chose a really soft, pale grayish blue, and gave it some very light distressing. It was finished off with 2 coats of wax which gives it a soft sheen. Not only is the piece great for a master bedroom, but it would also work as a dresser in a child or baby’s room. Or maybe you want to live on the edge and use it as a sideboard in your dining room. So many possibilities!

Oval-ish Oak Dining Table

This item has been sold IMG_7380
This solid oak table had quite a 70s vibe going on when I found it. But the beautiful shape, and intricate carved details, screamed to be showcased with some paint and glaze! My customer chose Glidden’s Teal Lake with a dark gray stained top.

It easily seats 6 without the leaf, and 8 with it.

I found this set when googling one night and I think it has the exact same vibe we’re going for with ours:

Rock Maple table with 4 chairs

This item has been soldimage

Solid rock maple kitchen or dining room table. If you’re looking for a super solid, durable table to withstand years of hard use, then this is the table for you.  The legs are a glossy, light gray.  For the top I did a paint wash, which is a mix of part water, part paint. This gave it just the right shade of gray, so you can still see the beautiful wood. The set of 4 matching chairs have been updated with the same paint as the table base, new foam and designer fabric in the same gray tones. All pieces are solid wood, which is hard to find these days!
