Heavy Metal(lic)

Standard

Woohooo It’s Thursday!! Even though it is a bit rainy, I am feeling energized! So many exciting projects to work on and I am really looking forward to sharing them with you…but not yet! 

 

The two pieces that I am featuring today were some of my favorite to do!! I had gotten a request to paint their console silver. I was so excited to get started on this project and I am proud of how it turned out.

From the same client I received a headboard that I had shown you in a previous posting. She wanted it stark white, which has been pretty popular lately! I love how this antique piece was transformed!

Mod about White

Standard

Hello everyone! Hope all are doing well and are looking forward to the weekend. My close friend Mavis and I are throwing a wedding shower for our dear, lovely friend Tisha and so tomorrow we will be cooking up a storm for the shower. I can’t wait to celebrate such a beautiful person inside and out.

While I have been on blogging hiatus, my life has been super busy! Columbus Furniture Revival has been accepted as a finalist for the Bad Girl Ventures, which is a phenomenal non profit that supports female entrepreneurs. They provide us with a 9 week business course which I find to be very valuable! Not only do I have BGV going on, but our house is about to go on the market this weekend… Finally!!!

All that and Columbus Furniture Revival is still as busy as ever! I just finished a mod 9 drawer dresser for Carrie, a new client. She gave me some measurements and we went from there! This is the dresser she and her husband decided on having me finish.

I love the clean lines and the simplicity of it. However, the hardware up close did not impress me (not too pretty). Carrie told me she was looking for a white dresser, so white she got!

Image

I found some really phenomenal hardware from the Columbus Architectural Salvage. I love it there and spent much longer there than I should have. I was getting inspiration!

If you have a piece of furniture collecting dust, contact me and we can turn it into a piece that you will be a showpiece that you love!

Color Me Pleather

Standard

Hope everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! We got lots done around the house and are putting the finishing touches on it before it goes on the market! Very exciting. All this followed by a rousing fantasy football draft! I have been looking forward to getting my hands on some furniture all weekend and so I welcomed Tuesday with open arms.

Last week I finished a piece for Nieman Bates that was a joy for me to do. We decided it was a chest where people can do puzzles and leave them and they will get uninterrupted. I am sure you could use it for games along with many other things, but for my sake, I thought about puzzles. So how could we make this more puzzle friendly? One word…PLEATHER!

I started by sanding the chest and painting it …

Then I added the pleather…

Added some finishing touches such as a new hinge and voila!

This piece is available at Nieman Bates in Upper Arlington! It is a fabulous store I recommend you all check out.

I am also posting a picture of an amazing antique porcelain top kitchen table. I have had this one for a bit but I just wanted to let you all know that it still needs a home! If you or anyone you know is interested please contact me!
