What's New

Hello! I've been busy in the shop this summer and wanted to share a few pieces I've refinished and that are available to go to a great new home! They're all high-end pieces with quality craftmanship. They just don't make furniture like this anymore!

Check out my Etsy shop for additional pictures, prices and dimensions. I have to caution you, however, I've been having a really hard time getting reasonable out-of-state shipping rates - they're coming back really high lately. But if you're in Southern California, we can probably figure out a way to get it to you!
You may think this is a buffet, but it's actually a nine-drawer dresser! I refinished it in a custom-color in navy blue and sealed it in a matte finish. It could be used as a media center, buffet, or even a changing table!

Navy Transitional Dresser

This next piece is probably the 1000th white dresser I've refinished. I never get tired of such a classic, elegant, versatile look.

White French Provincial Dresser

Between primer, paint, and sealer, this baby probably has about 20 layers. And each layer gets painstakingly sanded between coats for a luxurious finish! A ton of work - but look at the result!

My blue and white collection (ahem, obsession) is growing!

The following pieces came from the estate of a little old lady from Pasadena. I could tell she had exquisite taste just by the furnishings, china and artwork that were in her home. So it was really an honor to revamp these dressers for a new life with another generation!

Each dresser was stripped to reveal a gorgeous wood grain on the top. I refinished the tops in an ebony stain with a glossy sealer. The bodies were painted in a driftwood gray.

Pretty proud of how they turned out! Just look at that mirror finish! Update: these items have been sold and are in their new home!

This last set is one of my personal favorites. I refinished a dresser and two matching nightstands in gray shades with silver hardware. This has been one of my most popular color combinations lately - so much so that I see it popping up now by other local painters!

One of two nightstands complete the set!
