The missing link

This project was so much fun! The client contacted me to finish this bookcase to go in her young daughter's bedroom.  The Lilly Pulitzer-style room was bursting with color and accented with navy blue.  She wanted the background of the bookcase to be Benjamin Moore's Hale Navy and wanted a link pattern in gold across the… Continue reading The missing link

Dining table refresh

Sometimes all a dining set needs is a simple refresh.  This table had served my client's family for years and was still in excellent structural condition.  It just needed a little cosmetic refinishing. The client has a lot of wood in her kitchen, so after discussing options, we decided on painting the chairs, table legs… Continue reading Dining table refresh

Custom TV Console

I recently had one of my regular clients ask if I could build her a TV console for their family room.  She sent me a photo of what she wanted, and lucky for me, there were building plans attached!  I followed the design plans from Remodelaholic found here. The building plans warned that this piece… Continue reading Custom TV Console

Thinking Outside the Block

When we overhauled our kitchen last year, we replaced our laminate kitchen counters with butcherblock.  We purchased the unfinished butcher block and stained, sealed and installed them ourselves.  Now, if your kitchen is anything like ours, you know how valuable counter space is and how easy it is for it to get away from you.… Continue reading Thinking Outside the Block

The Mantle of my Dreams

When we purchased our home 3 years ago, we fell in love with it.  It was the layout, size, and space we were looking for.  It was colonial in style, but the problem was, my husband and I are not colonial in taste.  Therefore we set out to adapt some of the features of the… Continue reading The Mantle of my Dreams

Custom Built Frames

We've all done it.  We get sucked in by those canvas print Groupon deals.  We order our favorite picture (or pictures for gifts).  Sometimes they look amazing.  Sometimes the look a little. Well...unfinished. Custom built frames are the easy solution.  They can be built to any size, depth, color, and finish.  That means you can… Continue reading Custom Built Frames

Snazzy Storage Upgrade

I client of mine came across this cool little cabinet.  It is unique in how many drawers it has for storage and definitely has a vintage feel.  The problem was that it looked a little too much like a piece of office furniture.  We decided that the original finish on the metal should stay as… Continue reading Snazzy Storage Upgrade

At Attention

I was recently hired by Dave and Lesley Shade from At Attention Dog Training in King of Prussia to help complete their military-based dog training facility.  I normally work on one or two pieces for a client within their decor and was so excited to be a part of building an entire brand for this… Continue reading At Attention

Pretty Little Table

I was beyond excited when I had the opportunity to purchase this table.  I loved the style and knew that even though it needed quite a bit of help, none of the repairs were particularly complicated.  It was extremely wobbly, was missing its drawer, and had been painted in a way that created texture all… Continue reading Pretty Little Table

Recreating Driftwood

Upon delivering the lazy susan from my post two weeks ago, the client and I were assessing the rest of her dining room.  She has these great wicker dining chairs that are visually light and airy--fitting the beach vibe of her home perfectly.  The only downside was that she didn't like the yellow undertone of the… Continue reading Recreating Driftwood
