Red and White Dining Table Set With Bench....


Well to start off, we had this table for 
along time.  It is a really awesome table.  I love the 
detailed legs and the pull out side leaves on each side.
This piece I actually did all on my own.
Absolutely no help from my partner/husband.
He is working on a huge custom order at the moment.
Anyways, I always see all his techniques in repairing and sanding .
So I used all of them on this one.
Here is was before,





I sanded it and stained it
with 3 different colors of stain.
Then added 3 coats of poly.


Stripped the bottom part of the table completely....
then primed and painted it white....


Sanded down the chairs and painted them red...
love how you can still see all the 
dark wood! 










Now the bench my husband/partner did put that together.
Some things I just don't want to do or even learn to do!

We had 2 Jenny Lind spindle twin bed whole
frame sets.  One was complete and the other was not,
plus it was missing some spindles.
This is how it looked just minus some spindles, slats,
and rails.



Here is the awesome bench he made!
I love it so much!!!


Sanded it down and painted it red also.
It has the same technique with the
 wood showing threw the red paint.


I just love this set!

Custom Painted Highchair....

I had a previous customer of ours
contact me and want me to paint
her highchair that was hers
as a child.  She wanted her baby
to use it but needed it refinished.
She wanted it all white, but then I 
asked her how about the tray
refinished in a stain,
then distress the white edges.
She loved that idea, so here 
it was before....


we sanded it down....
took it apart...
taped up the straps...


took the tray apart...


completely apart and sanded it down...


then I stained it...


add poly....


primed and painted the highchair all white......





distressed the edges....







My goodness it is just TOO CUTE!!!
She LOVED it!!!!

Refinished Antique Vanity Painted Pink.....

This vanity was painted in some lacquer paint...
So here it is before, a reddish brown..


so we stripped it down...
added a wheel as one was missing....


stripped the drawers and the mirror 
frame (not pictured)


I primed and then painted it the pink he 
picked....














I also replaced the knobs for 
some better ones...
he liked it :)


we also replaced the mirror as the other
was to heavy for the wood frame....












So pretty :)
