Welcome to my crazy life! I love to refinish and re create on a dime. Join me in this adventure creating beautiful in your home. I live in South Western Ontario, am married to the most amazing man (he has to be amazing to put up with all the "junk" I bring home) Together we have 4 GREAT adult kids, one daughter in law ( I couldn't have asked for a better woman for our son) and I'm Oma to the cutest and brightest little boy. Yes I'm biased!
Another project that sat in my basement for a LONG time...seriously!
Unless you consider 3 years a drop in the bucket.
These are very brutal before pics. I wish I had original pics but I think that was two computers ago and I seem to have lost them. This was after a LOT of work on it.
The top was removed in order to really get to the bones and fix all that was wrong.
I can't even begin to tell you what was done to it. The doors were horrid and I had to replace the backs of the doors...they were literally falling apart with lots of pieces missing.
I was asked by a new client to find something she could use as a kitchen island...and my mind went to this piece...so photo's were exchanged and an idea came together that I could work with and she could dream about.
This is the end result.
She wanted Black...which seems to suit this piece to a T
The original top could not be salvaged so we (hubby helped) created a new one from thick oak pieces I picked up two years ago and had planned to use on this piece anyway.
I found these supports at my "junk" store and they go with it wonderfully :)
the overhang was left with a "live edge" and I think it fits perfectly!
A new lining and some more paint..everything sealed and polished...it's now ready to go "home"
Even if something is in really rough shape, it can be recreated with a lot of work...and maybe just a few tears (not that I would admit to that..lol)
So from this
With work and a vision.
I originally bought this to go in my dining room...but I think it took so long because it really didn't belong to me..or my dining room. Funny how that works out sometimes.
