A few weeks ago, I got an email from a client, asking if I could fix up an antique card table from her Grandfather. It was missing a leg, so I turned to my trustworthy, talented, always on-call carpenter (also know as Dad). His response "I like to think we can fix anything".
And since I can paint anything, I took the challenge.
Here's how this beauty turned out after. What a gorgeous piece.
I love experimenting with different colours and techniques. One technique I have grown to love is a two colour effect. I recently completed this mirror and just love how it turned out. It would look beautiful in a powder room, or an entry way, or even a bedroom on top of a dresser.

And this pic doesn't show much, but I thought it was funny that Marley just had to sneak in the pic...
I swear, this is the last hall tree I will be doing for a loooong time! I just couldn't resist this piece. The size is perfect for narrow hallways that don't have a lot of storage. This thing is solid wood, and I couldn't get over the detail on the bottom brackets. It's an antique replica (hence the low price tag), but the marble inlay is vintage. Seriously, I love this piece and I hope it goes to a warm home that will love it as much as I do.
Just wrapped up one of my most favourite spaces ever for a very special Grandma! She wanted a beachy space to relax in. My first instinct was to fill the room with painted white furniture and soft greens and blues, but I was faced with a challenge! No painting the rosewood dining set! So, the entire design was based around incorporating warm toned woods, with cool beachy colours. This is what I came up with.
I recently purchased this gorgeous antique mirror at an auction in Kitchener (Thanks Mom for being the best and bringing it home for me). It was in rough shape when I got it, but had the most amazing detailing. And the best part, is it's old, weathered, antique mirror. I L-O-V-E antique mirror.... tiny bubbles, little bumps, and small knicks. The best.
So, with some tlc, I brought it back to life. Errrr, going to be hard to say good bye to this one!
