Past completed projects

Here are some past projects I have completed.  Some of these pieces I found at auctions, flea markets, yard sales, thrift shops, or some great people passed them onto me.  Others were commissioned for me to paint from individuals looking to update and breathe new life into old pieces!
If you are interested in having me upcycle your furniture or are looking for a particular piece, you can contact me at 724-989-0689 or carlarhodes@zoominternet.net

Toy box was a thrift store find. Painted in Annie Sloan chalk paint of versallies (sage green color) and clear and dark waxed. Sold for $50.00


Duck egg blue Annie Sloan paint and clear and dark waxed.



Hello fancy side board! Painted in a creamy beige and then glazed to bring out all the details of the nooks and crannies! When I bought this the top was pilling vaneer and it needed to be removed (hello splinters!!). Sold for $200.00


This was a well made (because my dad made it!) dresser.  It was painted in off white Annie Sloan chalk paint and highly distressed and then clear waxed. Sold for $65.00

Frenchy sweet meets shabby chic!
endtables were a FB STW find and upcycled. Sold for $60.00


Zebra cabinet/bureau was huge and massively heavy!! Started off as a commissioned piece but deal fell through and now it has made it's way into a new home for $125.00.  Zebra was free handed by me!! This is probably my most talked about piece!
