My First Custom Order

So I just finished working on my first custom order. Crazy! The client who purchased the white coffee table was getting it for a friend’s daughter. When she picked it up, my husband asked if they were looking for anything else, and she said she was also in need of a dining set. So I immediately started looking and later that day bought this beautiful set.

I was immediately draw to the cane. It is all fully intact which is awesome! The chairs are detailed and the legs of the table have some pretty curves too. Perfect. Plus this set is a little small, perfect for a college apartment!

My client selected Paris Grey for the table and Florence for the chairs.

Florence is so deep and rich, a perfect color to make the set really pop!

Look at that! Gorgeous! I of course sanded a little to give the details depth. I sealed with satin polycrylic this time since this set will get a lot of wear. I like polycrylic because it is water based (easy clean up) and gives a matte finish.

Look at this! Turned out awesome! Here it is in this lucky girl’s super cute apartment!



I loved working with a client and finding something to fit her needs and style! It was so fun to know who it will be going to. Want to be my next client? Email me at
