Claim it Before I Paint it!

I've been picking up new pieces of furniture this week, and I'm offering them to you before I touch them. If you see something you like and have ideas about how it should be finished, just let me know...

Long low dresser, 6 drawers.

Smaller dresser, in my opinion this is a great height for a baby changing table.

Console table, with 2 glass inserts.

Detail shot of console table. I'd like to finally try glazing on this piece to bring our the beautiful carved detail.

I also have 2 finished pieces available...

I just finished this simple end table. Painted in cream, and sea green, distressed, and finished with wax for durability and shine. $75.

Distressing detail.

Top detail.

Antique farm table. $90.

It's been a successful day here in my little living room based furniture shop. I was able to sell 2 dressers today- making room for new items! One was a dresser I picked up off Craigslist and refinished according to my vision. The other one I picked up a used furniture shop and custom finished for a customer. (I have customers!!! Holy moly!)

This farm table is still available for $100.

If you are interested in the farm table or are in need of custom work, feel free to contact me!

Hi! My name is Christina and I enjoy refinishing old furniture. I love decorating my home and being on a budget means thrift stores, second hand furniture, and DIY. While trying to make my home a beautiful place refinishing furniture has gone from a hobby to a passion. Now I am sharing my passion with you. I hope you enjoy my work!

Here are some examples of my work.
