"SOLID OAK inside and out. This piece was pristine when I got it, like it had never been used. Heavy, sturdy, like brand new. Drawers glide with ease. The old rusty vintage casters that I’ve been holding onto for about a year were my inspiration for going with a rustic industrial vibe. Many paint colors went into this starting with a base of General Finishes Lamp Black. A very cool product called “rust in a jar” by Autentico Paint USA was used to create textured old rust looking areas...

"When you create for long enough, inevitably along will come a piece that you struggle to list for sale. Please welcome, Clevette to the collection! We found her hidden away in the basement of a home we ended up buying as a flip last year. Her top was heavily aged but her character and charm undeniably drew us in. My dad selected the best pine boards at the lumber yard and we laid her a new custom top. After several rounds of cleaning, this girl's mahogany tannins still bleed so I opted...
"Sometimes...when I’m waiting for paint to dry...I squeeze in a little project. This little cutelydute bench was a curbside find. I gave it a quick little refresh by removing the dated, flouncy fabric as well as removing the peeling veneer, which that flouncy fabric was covering. I used General Finishes Lamp Black and then I sealed it with (my favorite) Polyvine Ltd wax finish varnish in dead flat. I used some leftover, fun fabric to reupholster the seat." - REmade
