Custom Color Choices that are #Worthit

Around here, we have about 15 colors we carry in-house. Those colors, listed here, are what we have found to be the biggest crowd pleasers. But sometimes, you don't want what the crowd wants, you want a really bold piece or something really unique and different. Don't worry, we gotchu. We can color match any color from any deck for a $50 up charge to cover the cost of the gallon of paint. Now that can be tricky, to have...

Our Dining Room Transformation(s)

We moved into our current home in spring of 2012 and this is what the dining room looked like. The space already had some great things going for it. Even though there is only one window in the room, the natural light that comes through is pretty significant. The molding was already updated and painted white, just leaving the window frame and archway to paint. The wood floors were in great condition and were stained a really beautiful dark walnut color. The...

Cerusing: Before and After

This piece has a great structure, but seriously needed a new finish and some new hardware. I decided it would be really cool to ceruse this piece, since we haven't done that finish for a floor piece in a while. First, the hardware was removed and the piece was sanded and prepped. The dresser was in good condition from the start, which is always nice! I love the rounded front of this dresser and the drawers are nice and deep for...

3 Pieces Reimagined with Metal Bases

This past year, we started offering custom metal bases as a way to give some of our vintage pieces a little lift. It has been a great option for some of our customers.

To give you some inspiration, check out these mockups of pieces we currently have in our inventory! This buffet is amazing. It has all doors, which is a feature many of our...

Claire’s Transitional Hutch: Where Form Meets Function

We've loved working with Claire Staszak of Centered by Design on some pieces for her home. She sent us these pictures, taken by Carolina Rodriguez, of a hutch we refinished for her. Isn't her styling amazing?! The piece has so much exposed shelving, that what you put in it matters almost as much as the color and finish of the piece itself. Claire chose to go with Pointing by Farrow and Ball with dark glazing to give it that antiqued look....
