Rustic, Hammered Side Tables

This past month I decided to try my hand at the hammered look. I found this picture online and it was my inspiration (please note the console pictured directly below is not for sale). I love how the stain is darker in some places and lighter in others.

Not only did I decide to try the hammered look (not on the tabletops), but I also tried my hand at staining Mexican Pine. I am not sure how Mexican Pine normally stains but I noticed that my two pieces picked up stained in different ways. The tables definitely did not turn out like the console table above; however, I think they look really cool. They seem to look lighter/darker depending on the lighting. I think they have a lot of character and would make a wonderful addition to a house/cabin with a more rustic style. I looked online to see how much the side tables usually cost and they are about $170/table. You can view them HERE. The tables measure 24"x24"x20" (l,w,h). They will only be sold as a set.

Only $150. (SOLD)

Black Bedroom Set - Not For Sale

I just finished this black bedroom set for a client's daughter. My client had planned on doing this herself and had been talked into purchasing oil-based paint for the project. The project quickly turned into something larger than she wanted to pursue, and that's where I stepped in. This was my first time using oil-based paint and I think it turned out beautifully. That being said, I hope I never use oil-based paint again! It is hard having the patience to wait 24-hrs between coats.
If any of you have any pieces you need refinished or projects that you cannot complete then please feel free to contact me and we can get it done!

Not For Sale.

I will be working on two dressers (one long, one tall), a three piece wall unit, and two side tables over the next month. I still have the Distressed White Dining Room Set and the Rustic Carved Buffet/Dresser available for sale. Thank you for visiting B's Refurnishings!
