FURNITURE FACELIFT

Finding the PERFECT piece for your space can be challenging. We try to focus on the shape and function of each piece and envision the possibility in the final look. Sometimes the best solution is to FLIP IT! These are some of our favorite furniture flips to date. 

Big and Bold

This hutch went from formal to FUN with some cobalt blue chalk paint and Annie Sloan  wax. Click for more images.

This client needed a functional piece in her office that fit in with the rest of her decor. We spiced things up with an animal stencil in a pop of color as added interest.

A retro beach inspired vibe gave these Ikea pieces new life for a client moving to the West Coast. Click for more images.

Classic

Classic doesn't have to mean boring. Here are some beautiful pieces that add a touch of elegance. Click for more images.

Just because it's classic on the outside doesn't mean it can't have a touch of color on the inside. Click for more images.

This armoire was given a classic look to coincide with this client's zen bedroom. Additional molding and beautiful door pulls were added as a touch of interest. Click for more images.

This nursery set was refinished for a new baby girl. Pink and white beaded accents added a touch of whimsy to the bookshelf. Click for more images.

Antiqued/Eclectic

Aged is in! These pieces got updated with a beautiful but worn exterior. It can be fun to get an updated piece with the perfect loved look. They can also add a lot to a space that has a more eclectic feel. Click for more images.

Refurbishing is not limited to wood pieces. These metal stool were sanded to create a more lived in look. The mirror was hit with an acid solution for a more antiqued feel.

Another great way to create an eclectic look is to mix patterns. By keeping with similar color palates and metallics these pieces will go with the others around the home, while being fun statement pieces as well.

Upholstery

When the fabric is not just right or has been worn out, upholstery is the answer! Give your pieces new looks with your favorite fabric. Whether bold or neutral these pieces were updated to fit their new homes with the perfect textile. Click for more images.

BABE THE BIG BLUE OX

We found this piece earlier this year because we were looking for a new home bar. While we love natural wood pieces, there was something about this piece that was begging for a little face lift.

We started by making our own chalk paint with a gorgeous vibrant blue by Ralph Lauren.

Then came time for the finishing touches. We purchased soft wax by Annie Sloan from our friends at  Verdigreen down in the East Village.

The Finished Product....
