Solid Wood Antique: Redeemed, Steamed, Refinished in YOUR choices

First picture below - is an example of a beautiful unique and one of a kind Antique dresser we just finished and had the pleasure of delivering to our client - a dresser that will be an heirloom for a new little person.  Finished with incomparable & durable Annie Sloan Chalk paint in custom colour, hand buffed for protection and antiqued with AS wax.  

We love to source antiques that are structurally solid with interesting lines and details; in consultation with you we are able to help you choose your colours from our swatches and finishes and from a vast selection of hardware.  Your piece will be a creation totallly unique, not a cookie cutter piece mass produced for a big box store.  This client chose our beautiful bubble glass knobs from Da Rosa Creations.

Cherry Blossom Night Table (Custom Request)

A new client, Julia, who purchased the Cherry Blossom Dresser had such great taste that she also wanted a night table to match - hand painted in the same Cherry Blossom theme! A fabulous idea.  We found a table that was aesthetically pleasing in the same "boxy" sort of style and I even managed to find pretty much the same hardware by chance - which we then painted silver.  I think it turned out fabulous!

Solid Pine Wardrobe/Armoire ***SOLD***

Given to us by a client, this piece was previously blue & bare pine. Douglas decided to add some ASCP "Florence" & "Old Ochre" to give it some flair! It is versatile and can be used to store linens, clothes or tv.  It has two large compartments. Waxed using AS for protection & versatility. 

It wasn't selling dressed up in this colour - I painted it to all over "Old Ochre" with dark wax, then it went to a good home!
