"This piece is GREEN with envy! This cabinet was my Granny and Gramps from my dad's side of the family aka my OWN family heirloom. It was in ROUGH shape from years of use. Missing veneer pieces, piece of the ornate feet had fallen off over the years and the top had multiple water rings. Lastly, the cabinet door was cracked and would no longer hold the screws in the hinges. It may have been in a sad state but it was DEFINITELY worth saving. I gave it a VERY good sanding and cleaning.

"Another client owned pedestal table revived and to think, I almost passed on doing this table! I was concerned about it getting too cold in the garage, but thankfully we experienced above normal temperatures and lots of sun in November which helped greatly as well as my husband's graciousness to let this table sit inside our home for several days while I sealed it. I did use a water-based stain by General Finishes in the color Walnut rather than my typical oil-based stain, which dried so much...

"Melina came to us in the spring, but took quite some time to tell us her vision for this transformation. She appeared often as we repaired her dovetails and sanded her wood fronts, but it wasn't until fall when she chose vintage glam refinery. Her tiger oak top and fronts had to remain a part of her, so I stained them in General Finishes Provincial stain and sealed them with semi-gloss top coat for durability and shine. What better color to accentuate that woodgrain than Dixie Belle Paint...

"If I had to pick one piece of furniture that everyone could use in their home but probably don’t realize...it would be a cedar chest. It’s the perfect piece for toy storage, coffee table, bench seating, at the end of a bed, and of course for storing clothes and blankets. This cedar chest has been around for almost 60 years...and I had the privilege of meeting the original owner. It has since been passed down in the family and with the new updated look it will be used for many more years....
