A Pop of Turquoise

Standard

It’s the last day to vote for Columbus Furniture Revival at growam.com

We should find out within the next week if all of the voting paid off! Thank you all for your support and for sticking with me while day in and day out I have been bugging you all to vote!

While we wait for the results, I wanted to share a recent dresser I refinished! I received a dresser from a client who wanted it to look pretty much completely different. She gave me a photo for inspiration and left the rest up to me.

She wanted a turquoise color paint with an antiqued finish. We reused the pulls and just gave them a new look and bought 4 knobs for the top drawer. It is definitely a piece that pops and I just love the color!!

Hope you all have a wonderful day and don’t forget to vote!!20130430-085342.jpg20130430-085505.jpg

Unique Antique

Standard

What a beautiful winter day…wait. Spring day? This snow has got me confused, but I did take a moment to appreciate the beauty of the snow yesterday. Perhaps I was taking it all in and hoping at the same time it would be the last snow of the season. I am ready for some warmer weather!

The past few weeks I have been working on this beautiful drop leaf dining room table. Beneath all of the wear and tear, it was a beautiful antique piece that could be saved.

Off to sand I went. I sanded, and sanded, and sanded some more. I finally got all of those scratched out of the tabe so I could start fresh.

Because of the age of the piece, matching the stain exactly was a bit tricky. I got to mixing and came up with a very, VERY close match (in my opinion at least).

Bleached Out

Standard

Morning all!

I just delivered some fantastic pieces of furniture that I have wanted to share with you since I started them. I got these two pieces of furniture that were covered in dark paint and the owner wanted the to be stained. This was going to be a challenge, but nothing Columbus Furniture Revival can’t handle.

We knew there was real wood underneath, but because of the paint colors, this was going to take lots and lots of sandpaper. And so it began. My friend Allison came over to join in the sanding fun!

Then begins the fun!!! I love seeing the transformation. It took a couple of tries but we figured out the perfect stain. Bleached, but with a bit of grey undertones and lots of woodgrain visible. 

Image

 

We painted the inside of the armoire because of the black paint, it would have been very difficult to remove the paint and stain the inside. We used a light grey to match the stain. 

Image

 

The hardware chosen was a glass knob. I think it adds to the look of these pieces and really makes them a set! What do you think?

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Standard

 

I hope everyone is enjoying 2013 so far and we here at Columbus Furniture Revival wish you all a happy, healthy year. 

The first post of 2013 is about this old secretary desk brought to me in rough condition. It was in dire need of our help. Wood was splitting, the piece was wobbly, slats of wood were unattached, and it was needing some refreshing.

After much discussion, we would use some wood glue, clamps, wood filler and some nails to start. Man do I love these clamps! Carl got them for me and they worked like a charm. 

Image

 

The owner of the piece wanted it painted and we decided to paint the hardware nickel to make it really pop.

We are delivering this today and I can’t wait to see how they like it!!

Heavy Metal(lic)

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!
