April 9th-April 15th Custom Furniture Refinishing Projects Denver, Colorado

This week I was able to complete the bedroom set I've been working on over the last few weeks. The king sized bed was the last project out of the set and it turned out amazing! The color on all the pieces was a custom gray that I mixed myself and black antiquing. My client also sent me a picture of the finished products all set up in her room!

Another fun project from this week was a custom teal corner hutch. My client brought mercury glass knobs to swap out the outdated hardware. I did a very light antiquing wash over the teal and lightly distressed. I love how it turned out!

Nursery and Kids Furniture Denver, Colorado - Nursery and Kids Interior Room Design

Some of my favorite furniture pieces to do are custom orders for kids rooms and nurseries! I love it because A) it usually involves bold color and B) clients are more inclined to go outside the box and get creative with it! It is so fun for me to be involved in these client projects because I get a peak into their lives. I get to learn about their little ones, come up with a creative design and deliver a truly unique one of a kind piece for their spaces! Here are just a few examples of some of the fun designs I have had the pleasure of doing over the last few years! -Vanessa

French Provincial Shabby Chic Furniture January 22-28th Denver, Colorado

This week I worked on some really cool shabby chic French provincial style furniture pieces. These were all client owned pieces that I refinished to her customized look. This particular client is renovating their master bedroom. When we had our design consult we talked about a few different finishes that would compliment the waisncoting she was putting against the main accent wall. We settled on a greige color (grayish brown) with antiquing. I love the versatility of this color because it goes so well with both browns and grays. For the dresser she really liked the wood stained top idea to contrast against the nightstands. In addition, with all the bedroom pieces I sanded back to a white finish to add extra contrast. Lastly, was a bathroom vanity that she decided to go with a custom mixed navy with gold accents and hardware. I love how all these pieces came out! I cannot wait to see them in her space! -Vanessa

New Rustic Farmhouse Furniture Projects January 9-13th 2017

More prep this week for the {Simply Vintage Market}. I was able to finish these 3 additional projects that I just love and am excited to showcase in my booth! First was an amazing cathedral paneled farmhouse hutch. I went traditional white with light distressing, added new mercury glass hardware and left the natural wood in the hutch top. I thought the natural wood against white dishes would be awesome! Next up was a 5 drawer antique dresser. I decided to sand and re-stain the top in a dark walnut. I painted the body in a duck egg blue and added new hardware. I love the versatility of this blue. Even though it is a color it acts as a neutral because it goes so well with browns and grays. Lastly, I finished up this vintage Lane wood trunk. This piece is beautiful with cedar lining the interior. I sanded and re-stained the top in a medium walnut. The body was first painted gray and then whitewashed overlay. New hardware makes this perfect for an entry way, bedroom or living room! Hope to see you at the market!
