This piece stole my heart at auction! I have a real weakness for buffets and sideboards. You can put them anywhere! This one would make a great TV/media stand!
I sanded it down, painted two coats of black and used a new "rub through" technique to expose the original mahogany, then finished the piece off with a tobacco glaze and wipe on poly. Four different sets of knobs and hardware set this piece off from any other typical buffet.
*please excuse the spotty camera! black is SO hard to photograph!!*

I didn't realize how much we've done so far this month until I sat down to put it all on the website. So we're going to do another compilation. If you want to see all of the photos, just simply click on the title of each piece. Hope you guys enjoy these as much as we have!
This desk was so much fun to do! It took a lot of time and effort but it turned out beautiful! I stripped down the top, retained it and then painted the base to the desk. We also stained the chair. This was my first stain job that actually turned out right! Finally!!
This was a piece for one of my life-long best friends! We've been friends for 22 years almost! She means the world to me! She chose a beautiful mustard yellow with heavy distressing and then I chose the amber glass knobs. This piece is so cute!
This piece is one of my favorites to date! Another staining project :) I love the two tone pieces I see all over Pinterest these days. This was painted a light gray, heavily distressed with a tobacco glaze. I just love everything about it, especially the hardware!
This bedroom set is so unique! I've never seen anything like it. To me it looks like stacked luggage or something. Just really cool! It looks so different now after we painted it a pale aqua and did some light distressing. Perfect for a little princess in her new room!
This set was so much fun to do! Lots of painting, glazing and staining. Layer, layers and more layers. We started out with a pale aqua and layered with multiple stains and wood stain glazing to finish it off. We also treated the hardware with a hammered bronze. These turned out great!
This piece came from me wanting to do something a little different, something outside the box. I used a warm, mustard yellow on the drawers and the side, heavily distressed with a dark glaze. The wood was stained with dark walnut and then we added three different knobs on there to make a bit of a statement!
There isn't too much to say about this set. We gave it a good, creamy white and added some cool iron hardware. Simple and beautiful!
I absolutely adore this roll top desk now that is has been painted. I think I'll start looking for one for myself soon! We painted this piece a pretty white, distressed all the details, darkened up the hardware and added a few egg knob pulls. I love the way it turned out.
