My Best Sellers – White and Stained Top

Back in 2013, when I decided I wanted to give this furniture painting thing a try, I found a cute little side table at an online tag sale and used it as my guinea pig. I wanted it to be white, antiqued and with a stained top. I was obsessed with a piece I saw on the blog Perfectly Imperfect, by Shaunna West. She had this wonderful sideboard right at her living room. Of course I wouldn’t start with a beast that big, so the cute side table was just right.
I was pretty happy with the result of my first baby.

Fast forward a couple of years, my hobby became my addiction, my passion, and finally my business. Over these two years I found out I was not the only one who absolutely loved this finish. It has been my best seller by far!

My latest project was another one with that beautiful look. For some reason this one made me feel a little nostalgic of the very beginning of my love story with furniture refinishing, so I decided to look back at all the pieces I’ve done with similar look. Here’s what I found.

There were a couple of tables and chairs too, but I forgot to include them.

Finally, these are the pictures of my latest project. A beautiful colonial dresser, large, heavy, and perfectly built.

The color is genesis by Benjamin Moore and the top was stained with Rustoleum Dark Walnut. My customer chose the new, modern nickel pulls and knobs and I think they look lovely.

It all started in the spring of 2013. I realized how tired I was to see my house entirely decorated with IKEA stuff. Nothing against IKEA, but after 12 years, I just needed some change. I wanted stylish, original furniture, but noticed that everything I liked from retail stores was way out of my budget. Thanks to Google, Youtube, and a couple of amazing blogs, I was able to discover and explore the world of furniture refinishing, and it was the beginning of my addiction. I now spend my days rescuing old, dull, unwanted pieces of furniture to give them a fresh look so they can be displayed, used and loved again for many more years to come. Thanks for stopping by.
