My client contacted me about redo'ing this piece of furniture for his wife as a surprise for her birthday. Her grandfather used this piece as his tool/work bench.  I loved the story and was determined to make it beautiful again, so I gave it a lot of TLC. I ended up stripping the whole thing about 5 times to get years of stain and grime off of it. It was also breaking in areas due to the weight of the heavy tools, so those areas needed fixing. After that, I cleaned and sealed it really well...

It came from where?? This sweet little table was beside a bed in a (scary) defunct care facility that was being sold. Someone had started the refinishing process years ago, leaving various layers of stain and varnish all over it, and areas had been damaged. It was so ugly it was almost overlooked! Thank goodness it was rescued and restored!

When I first saw Grandma's cedar chest I just knew I could breath new life into it. The poor thing was at an estate sale in the garage, full of musty blankets and the rear left leg was broken. I loved the faux  drawers on the front and was surprised to find an actual separate drawer on the bottom. After repairs were made and thoroughly cleaned inside & out, I used my Fuji Semi Pro 2 sprayer to lay a rich General Finishes Lamp Black basecoat. I love texture and depth so I felt a...
