When a customer sent me a picture of her Antique Victorian Break Front Secretary Desk, I was so excited to refinish it. The lines and curves of this desk are so intriguing to the eye. They just don’t make furniture like this anymore (well, I’m sure someone does, but the big box labels don’t)! The person who owned it beforehand had a cupcake thing going (hence the yellow). So the customer decided to go with a dark chestnut brown and bring out the original white and some of the yellow.I think the dark brown really shows off the beautiful lines of the piece.The bits of yellow that show through are a fun accent.This piece will be a fun, antique addition for years to come!

Today I'm featuring a thrift store chest of drawers that my sister-in-law and I found. I thought I'd have to paint the whole thing because of damage to the veneer. But alas, while sanding some goop off of the top, I realized that the veneer underneath was perfectly fine and sanded the whole thing. I decided to stain the top in Cappuccino Stain Oil, the perfect rich brown.
All of the furniture pieces with the exception of the industrial shelving unit are used pieces that I've re-homed and painted with Fusion Mineral Paint.
