Duncan Phyfe Dresser Painted and Glazed.....

I received an email from who was to be one
of our new clients and another wonderful person 
I've had the pleasure of meeting.  
She was here visiting here in Houston for a 
couple of days, she traveled from Tennessee where she resides.  
She really liked this dresser I had and my work. 
So we talked on the phone and relayed messages
back and forth like I do with all my clients.
She had sent me a picture of  a similar dresser she liked the color
it was painted.  So I tried to match it the closest I could.
She settled on General Finishes Milk Paint color Basil.
Then wanted the Van Dyke Glaze over that.
So here is the before.....


Now, general finishes says to lightly sand,but I like to strip
them down which we did.....repaired
all the missing veneer....
then I primed it all....


painted it all basil.....


she wanted the hardware kept original, which 
was a fantastic choice as it really adds to the aged feel....



added the glaze....










All finished!  I love the color and glaze together on this
Duncan Phyfe Dresser it makes it looks really old :)
Beautiful! 


French Country Cottage Chest....

It's been awhile since I posted.  I've been 
like really super busy with orders, pick ups, deliveries, 
and life.  So I will be posting 2 entries today.
Here we go, this was a furnished and custom
painted order for one of my cousins who loves my work.
She wanted this chest custom painted like
another dresser I had done, but with no distress.
So white with cream and dark bronze hardware.
Here is the before....


I sanded it all down and primed everything....


painted the shell all white....


then painted the drawers a cream color.....


then painted the hardware dark bronze....






I actually color matched the cream to Annie
Sloan old ochre....








All completed and looks beautiful!

Repair Order on Pedastal Table & Chair......

This was a repair order for
Jaime and Ashley who we
did the french provincial set for,
from my last post.
Their lab chewed up one of the 
pedastal legs from their table.
Then chewed the side leg
of one of the legs.
Here is the before...




So John repaired the chair
leg and I stained it.....




It took John like a full 
week to repair and reshape 
the leg to it's orginal state.....




I tried to match the stain
as close as possible.....



Here are the before and after pictures. 
Jaime and Ashley where in aw of
the finished pieces. 
They loved them so much!
Hopefully, their lab doesn't touch it again :)

French Provincial Bedroom Set.......

This was a referral order.  A client of ours that
contacted us last summer in 2014 wanted us to paint
her french provincial dresser teal and gold. 
 (You can search for that post in my blog) 
 She referred us to her friends who had a french set
that wanted theirs painted also.  Plus, they wanted a 
pedestal table bottom and chair repaired, that 
will be in the next post.
Here is the set below....


They wanted a slight cream color with 
newly refinished tops...
Then slight distress on edges with handles 
kept original.
So we sanded all of them down....




I stained the tops with the color she picked
 plus, added polycrylic to them....





I just really love our smooth finish....








I primed and then painted it the cream color....







Distressed all edges....


I love our smooth finish!!! 
We work really hard and long to achieve that....


This is why I tell my clients I take at least
minimum 1 week on my orders
depending on how big the order is...
It takes some time to get this smooth flat look....
ALOT of hard work.....





















I just love how much our clients appreciate
our work to refer us to their
friends....
that really means a lot :)




As always, they came out just beautiful!!!!
A big thanks to Crystal for her referral
and thanks to Jamie & Ashley for having us
custom paint their dresser set.
