"Oh my gosh, I am so excited this piece is finally done!! It needed a lot of work, but it's such a gorgeous and quality piece that it was worth it. Mahogany may be a real pain to work with, but the quality is amazing. The top was sanded down and brought back to life, the base needed lots of patching, sanding and I had to create a piece of missing trim. I patched and drilled new holes for the updated hardware, removed the green felt from the two small drawers and added fun paper instead. All in...

"The Lauren. A secretary with the IT factor! Softly and sweetly brought back to a beautiful life in General Finishes Antique White, with a warm aging glaze and High Performance Flat Finish. Insides had the old lacquer stripped down to bare wood and sealed in my favorite Arm-R-Seal. She took a good amount of time to rebuild those spindled legs, but I definitely think she was worth the wait!
Salvaged as much original hardware as she came with, and improvised on the rest!"

"My client picked this dresser from my Unfinished Inventory to customize for her daughter. I love that she chose Antique White by General Finishes for the body and Brown Mahogany for the top.

Beautiful makeover in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint
"Here she is, my friends! Completely made over from top to bottom, this gorgeous family heirloom is a hand carved Schlingmann Wertmobel cabinet that belonged to my clients parents in Germany. Even after making the trip from Germany to the U.S., this beauty was in near perfect condition and honestly, I was a tad bit intimidated to put paint on her flawless goodness. But wow! The makeover made each carving, each curve, each detail even more stunning and truly stand out.
My client chose a...
"This dresser was very basic to start off with. I love the idea of just a classic white dresser with a little surprise so I sanded it down, primed it and painted it in General Finishes Antique White Milk Paint. To get the wow factor I added pops of the Fern Wood transfer to the sides of the dresser. Lastly finished it off with some mercury glass knobs and TA-DA you have a whole new piece ✨!!"

"Most of you know my tastes tend to lean more modern with straight lines. However, I have so much respect for curvy furniture because I know how hard it is to make. These curvy gals are stunning Drexel pieces from the 1960s. They are in phenomenal shape, so well made and with their modern update I hope they will be loved for a long time. Hope you're having a great day. ❤️" - Boxwood & Brass

We unearthed Jemma from a basement as an old workbench- and found that she was quite possibly the end cap to an old general store counter.
After stripping the top, we figured she would make a KILLER mobile kitchen work station....
So a little Strip, a little sand, a little prime, a little paint and Shiplap, and finishes, and wheels and pulls, and OMG!!! ... this turned into WAY more work and supplies than I thought.
We have an absolutely AMAZING...
