Two Recent Makeovers

Here are 2 pieces I recently finished! The first, I forgot to take an "after" picture before Shayne took it to her shop...so the picture is from her shop.

Before: A fabulous sofa table or petite desk

After white paint and ebony stain as glaze:

This next piece is such a cute and unique piece...but someone took their faux skills a little far!

You've done a fantastic job with both pieces. I did not even notice the details on the first table until you had redone it. They really stand out and look beautiful now.

Now you can really see the details on that cute sofa table! And what a neat little buffet with great storage! Nicely done Allison!

I've never seen anything like that second piece - how cool! Stopping over from Not Just a Housewife - I shared my glass door cabinet makeover! I just love what a little paint can do to a piece of furniture!!

I'm going to have to stop looking at your fantastic pieces, I want them all. I have a definite thing for tables. I like to have a few that I can rotate depending on what I'm doing in a room.
My husband had made a couple great console or sofa tables but our living room is too small for them. Hated to have to get rid of them.Actually think they went to our local thrift shop after we moved in to our present house which is smaller than other places we've lived. I had to get rid of a lot of furniture. Drat.

love your blog i have to say so many wonderful inspirational pieces. I have been doing pieces for about a year now as furniture pieces for my home mosly using diy plaster of paris chalk paint and minwax finishing paste but would love to start doing some consignment pieces as well. I have tried also valpar antiquing glaze, i see you mention using minwax stain as a glaze as well as Fiddes Jacobean wax. I would love to know how you apply or make the glaze from a stain, also where you find the wax? i do not have a blog yet but my email is andreapbaker@gmail.com
