    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you so much! It was a process for sure. But so worth it! I am so excited to get it in there as well.

  5. Christine phillips says:

  10. Briar says:

    That counter is turning into a real gem, well done you!

  11. Debbie says:

    All your
    work is paying off. The counter looks great! And so does the trellis. Can’t wait to see the finished chicken coop.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you so much. I am so excited about these projects. I think the chicken coop is going to be one of the coolest projects ever.

  12. Paula says:

    I am in awe of you! I swept out my garage today and now I’m in bed with a muscle spasm in my lower back😂😂😂

  13. Shelley says:

    It’s absolutely beautiful!! Can’t wait to see it in your home.

  14. Marianne in Mo. says:

    Love how it looks now! There is nothing I hate more than stripping furniture! I’ve done so much of it over the years, that I really don’t want to do it anymore, but I also want to repurpose my Lane cedar chest into one with a bench on top. I’m just afraid I’ll hate it and not finish it. And I’ve had a secretary waiting for refinishing for 5 years, but I don’t like it, so why put in the effort? (My son in law found it for me, but it looks cheap, like it’s not real wood.) Anyway, I blab on, but I love the house and how you are adding old to the new!!!

    • Danelle says:

      Hahaha I know the feeling! It can be very time consuming. But thank you, about the house comment!

  15. Carey says:

    Fabulous! I love the card catalog too.

  16. Janice in Missouri says:

    That cabinet turned out so beautiful. I don’t know why I even doubted you! I know better. You guys rock! I’ve never known a stronger couple you guys rock. I don’t believe there’s nothing you can’t do

  17. Tracy Reiser-Weiters says:

    Absolutely fabulous! Love it!

  18. Lynn Smith says:

    OMG the counter is amazing!!! Can’t wait to see it in the new kitchen! And the card catalog will be so fun too!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you! I am so glad we got her. She is going to be perfect when she is all finished!

  19. Kathy Gray says:

    Wow- the cabinet’s grain is striking. It’s really pretty.

  20. Dee Ann says:

    I love how you can see a piece and go with it. I’d be second guessing and needing measurements. Plus, Deb can do anything! I’d have to be both , Deb and Danelle in my house with my, “I told you it wouldn’t work” husband making me second guess myself… but if it did work out… BEST idea he ever had 😂😂

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Oh we definitely measured several times to make sure it would work! And that is hilarious… its always a great idea when it works out 😂

  21. Patti says:

    That looks amazing! Love your work ethic! You two never stop. I’m so curious how much that incredible counter cost you (minus your labor). I always love when you share your deals. However much you paid, I’m sure it was worth it. Amazing.

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      Thank you! It feels like we never stop 😂 we paid $2,700 for it. We call it a steal because that size one to build would have been so much more.

  22. Tracy+Opera says:

    I absolutely love it and I’m so proud of you for sticking to the job and getting it finished. I can’t wait to see everything in the house and the card catalog thingy done as well.

  23. Kase says:

    Omg she’s a piece!!! Great job finding her

  24. Mary Sturgeon says:

    Oh my🥰😍😍🥰. Both are gorgeous ❤️

  25. Nancy+L says:

    You girls have guts! (Of course I don’t mean in a bad way!) I love everything you do….I couldn’t do everything you do! You amaze me….I’m in awwwwe! 🐕🐕🦮🦮

  26. Kyla Reidenbach says:

    It seems there’s nothing you two can’t re-do!

  27. Teri says:

    I love it!!! Can’t wait to see the white you paint inside! I’m trying to redo a really old cupboard right now with oven cleaner, I’m going through way too many cans. I’ve never tried mineral spirits, I’m kind of chicken to try!
    Any suggestions on how to get that nasty old smell out of antique wood?

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      You’ll never know unless you try! I say go for it! As for the smell, try filling plastic containers with white vinegar; seal, and punch holes in lids. Put one inside each drawer or cabinet overnight to absorb odors. Or use a sponge dampened with vinegar, Murphy’s Oil Wood Soap, hydrogen peroxide, or any other anti-fungal detergents and wipe it down. 🙂 Hope this helps!

  28. Pam says:

    So what will you store in those card catalog drawers? Will they be painted white also? I love both pieces. Such character!

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      I am not sure yet! We are still toying around with the idea. I don’t know if it will stay there or if we will paint it yet! So stay tuned 😉

  29. Joan Rickert says:

    That counter is like the holy grail of finds..love that you are incorporating vintage pieces into new construction. Just curious what did the counter cost? If you don’t mind saying..

    • Danelle Harvey says:

      For real… my heart stopped. It was everything I was looking for. And no! We paid $2,700 for it. Which was much cheaper than building our own for this size.

  30. Nancy says:

    I am in constant awe of the things you 2 accomplish! Where did you go in Illinois? I may need to plan a trip there.

  31. Missy Duffy says:

    Incredible piece! I knew it would look awesome once stripped! I’m interested to see what the other product is that you ordered. Mineral spirits works great too! I’m using on our dining table and I’m almost out and our local Home Depot has been out of stock for a couple months! So weird!

    The new counter top on this beauty will be the crown jewel! It will be glorious!

  32. Patricia Minter says:

    I love the 12 ft counter. Would love to have something like that. I need to get out more.

  33. Lorree (JadeiteJunkie_official) says:

    I’m always impressed with your projects, you ladies are something else! I’m so glad you linked the newsletter in you IG stories because I didn’t know you had one. Keep up the good work ☺

  34. Gina says:

    This piece turned out so great!!! Can you tell me what type of stripper you used? I’m having a hard time with an old old door that we want to use for a pantry. It had paint over top of varnish or shellac that I will not budge with sanding. Any suggestions would be very appreciated! Love you guys!

  35. Noelle Colglazier says:

    What furniture stripper did you use? I don’t know if there was an ad for it that expired. Now there isn’t a an ad for a Dodge truck. The counter is gorgeous!
