Janene's Refinishing Inc.

Ever since we moved into the 'Crossley Manor' with Aaron's parents I've heard all the major cautions... nasty resentment-causing issues, if you will. But you have to ask yourself, 'Is your cup half empty or half full?' We've really grown to enjoy living here.. and a sweet perk for me was mom giving me free reign with her furniture to decorate our 2 bedroom upstairs suite : ) 
Ps. Sorry in advance for for the picture overload!!!
Here's a bookshelf I found in a shed.

These are 2 blonde bookshelves over 25 years old...
Brown gel stain...
Cute, huh?

I forgot to snap a picture before but I went to town on this drawer set

I also forgot to snap a before pic! This was a medium brown chest
SO charming...I love it so much I can't stand it!

Last one!
I decided to 'two-tone' this kitchen table
A few days later...
I love it! I love it!
I have a love/hate relationship with this sort of hobby. I reached my limit with the 4th chair! Notice the picture is missing the other 4? I'll get to it soon...
Yours truly, Me


  1. I love this! This is a hobby that I would love to learn how to do, but I don't have a good eye for the right type of furniture to refinish- I guess I can't 'see' the furniture for what it could be! Great job!!!

  2. Janene, these look amazing! You're so talented!

  3. YOU are AMAZING! I can't even believe your talent!!! Thats just incredible! You go girl!!!

  4. Dang you are awesome! I'm so jealous of you! Aaaand, how do you manage to stay so super sexy all the time? I'm sure Aaron thinks he has the hottest wife ever! Still skinny & beautiful. Hope you guys are doing well!

  5. holy moly good job babe! were those kimbo's old furniture? ummmm still need to call you...yep...i totally opened my mouth and invited some people over for sunday dinner tomorrow though, BUT I WILL TRYYY!!!!
