My Clock

I picked this clock up for almost nothing. It has been tipped over and broken in a couple of places. I am so excited to refinish this piece. I wanted to sell it but the wife has different plans for it. I am not to sure of what color it will be refinished in, we will see.

Happy Customer

Another happy customer. I am so relieved. I guess I am to hard on myself. For some reason I always think the piece I am working on could have looked better. Like they say we are our own worst critic. The great thing about this line of work is that when I do complete the piece and the customer comes to pick it up the expression on there face is implanted in my mind forever. I love what I do and I hope business this summer is great. I have been researching blogs on furniture refinishing and I am just blown away by the talent that most of these women have. My hat goes off to these women who have never had professional training in the refinish business and are turning these pieces of furniture into art work. Very impressed!

Changing Table and Dresser

I took the day off work to work on some furniture. Me and my oldest son Divani started early and worked hard. Here is a picture of Divani doing some of the harder work, sanding. He is only 8 and is a pro already. This is the changing table and dresser finished. I had a hard time with the top of the dresser. I had to wipe down with grease remover, sand and then paint. I had to do this over and over. I could not get rid of the fish eyes. Finally it looks good. Now I have to start on the crib, this will be the last piece to complete this job. My friends baby is due in March and I am pushing it close. Time to work hard. Thank you ladies for following me. God bless you all.

Back in the Groove!

I am so excited for this next project! I get to refinish a crib, dresser and changing table for very special family. The best thing is I am refinishing this for a precious little angel that will be here soon. The crib and changing table are white and the dresser is yellow. I am going to paint this furniture a coffee color, it is going to be awesome. Thank you Ash and Josh for this opportunity to refinish this for your baby.

Finished Chair

Well Hello again. I have been extremely busy at my full time job. I am starting to refocus my life towards my furniture business again. I hope I am blessed with a lot of business. My beautiful wife finally finished her chair. I say finally because she home schools, works, takes care of the house, feeds us and does all the laundry for 6 people. Yep I married super lady. The chair turned out fantastic, she did a great job for a rookie. I think we will add some black glaze and varnish to it a little later. For now it will work fine. My wife and I make a great team in more ways than one. Good Job Baby!

Plain White

This item is for a customer. He started to refinish it until he noticed the primer started to bleed through the paint. You may not be able to see it in the picture but the white paint turned an ugly urine yellow.If you ask me, he brought it to the right guy. I am happy to refinish this piece. He wants it to be painted a semigloss white. I will have to do a lot of sanding on this project. I cant wait until my boy's are older so they can do all the sanding. LOL I will keep everyone posted on how this turns out. Oh yeah, I picked up two more followers. Thank you for the support Ladies.
