In the meantime, I'm super excited to show you a custom piece that I just finished for a client. I originally met this client when she contacted me to buy a piece of furniture that I had listed on Craigslist, but it had just sold moments before. Unfortunately, this happened between us about three times; so I started contacting her showing her my pieces first before listing them because I wanted her to have first dibs. By that time, the pieces I had weren't fitting what she was looking for.
She was looking for a dresser to use as a changing table. Since we couldn't seem to connect with the right pieces at the right time, she found this piece listed on Craigslist and asked me to refinish it for her. Of course I was thrilled because I love knowing where a piece is going and that it is going into a home where it will be well loved. I know, I'm a sap!
Here is what it looked like once it was completed.
At first glance I thought it was solid wood.
So, I got busy sanding with a 120 grit using my orbital sander.
In the meantime, the knobs got sprayed with my go-to knob spray paint...Oil Rubbed Bronze. I'm pretty sure I couldn't live without this stuff.
And the top (after two coats of dark walnut stain) got a got of dark wax, using Minwax Paste Wax.
Linking up with these fabulous ladies:
