Antique Vanity Make Over

Posted in Chef, My Work, refinished, Tools, Wilbur Cox Jr., Woodworking with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on December 26, 2015 by wilburcoxjr

This vanity was in the gentleman’s family that I bought it from since the 1920s.  I completely restored it.  Original mirror, hardware, and bench.  Completely hand painted and antiqued by yours truly.  This was given to @bmoremelloyello for Christmas because I wanted to make her something as beautiful as she is.  Originally it was all dark brown antique walnut number 700.  Because it was a secret Christmas gift, I couldn’t take any before shots for fear that my lady may find them in my phone.  Here is the finished after shot still in the family shop.  Merry Christmas all.

Old Door Coffee Table

This old coffee table

And this old door

Cut the door to size, sand it and refinish it.  Remove the old top of the coffee table.  Chalk paint the frame.  A few palet slats that were sanded and refinished. And this is what you end up with

Old Dupont Crate

Posted in Wilbur Cox Jr., Woodworking with tags , , , , on December 2, 2015 by wilburcoxjr

@bmoremelloyello found an old dupont crate that was originally used to ship gunpowder for cannons.  Sweet enough on its own, but we needed something to keep the pups out of the trash.  This is heavy enough that my 100 lb dog finally can’t knock over.  Add an old cabinet door and some old door hinges, and you get a new trash can cabinet.

Wood Accent Wall

Reclaimed wood, sanded, stained, oiled.  Drilling and anchoring into masonry isn’t as easy as it seems.  Always a work in progress.
