1960/70’s Whiskey Barrel Chairs for sale!!

Who knew this style of furniture was actually a thing?! 🤷‍♀️

My parents had a Barrel Table when I was growing up as a kid. I just thought someone DIY’d it back in the day, but NOPE! It’s a thing.

These chairs were pulled out of a dusty basement and needed some love to restore them back to their former glory, but they all cleaned up and ready for their next home!

If you’re a mid-century collector, or love industrial or all things wine/whiskey, these are for YOU! They’re incredibly rare, and I’ve only come across something like these once. Snag them while you can! Offering local purchase and also nationwide shipping on these!



This is only the second all-wood MCM piece I’ve finished like this and I’m just in love as the first time!!

Fully refinished MCM Mid-Century Sideboard / Credenza / Buffet. Stunning woodgrain throughout. 2 smooth sliding drawers and 3 sliding doors that reveal an interior shelf great for storage. Would be excellent in a living room as a media console or in your dining room as a buffet. DM for more information.

Who else is a self-proclaimed Plant Lady?! 🪴

Although I’m a gardener, and grew over 500 seedlings for my spring garden this year, I’ve only ever had one house plant, an easy Pathos.

A couple weeks ago I was helping with a house clean out and there were a TON of house plants being tossed in the trash! 😱 Many of them had sat out on the deck in freezing temps and hadn’t been cared for in a while. Of course the “fixer” in me had to take them all home and make them my new project and plant babies.

I had fun yesterday staging some of them on this tiered end table I just finished painting for my client. I have now entered my “Plant Lady” stage of life and I’m not mad about it! 😆

Here she is! This reveal has been a long time coming so I’m excited to finally show her off!

This heirloom cabinet had been in my clients husbands family for generations, and was ready for a glamorous makeover to better fit their style. This was one of the most difficult and time consuming projects I’ve worked on, but the outcome was so worth it!

The black, white, and gold combination is such a classic and one of my absolute favorite combinations!🖤🤍💛


This piece right here, makes my heart sing! One of the most intricate, detailed, and challenging pieces we’ve worked on, but also one of the most lovely! You all know that I am a GOLD girl through and through, and this antique heirloom cabinet is dripping in lustrous gold fretwork. Gah! 😍 Can’t wait to show you the full reveal of this beauty!

I love how bright and airy my customers living space is! I had the pleasure of transforming their parkay-top coffee table into something that would better complement the already lovely space. It was a tough project filling in all of the grooves and grain on the top, but it came out super smooth and really beautiful! Swipe through to see the process, and the final smooth and ombré look 😍

It’s not often that I insist on refinishing a piece to its original glory vs painting, but when I saw this woodgrain and hand cut dovetails drawers, there was no way I was painting this piece of furniture history!

This chest of drawers belonged to my clients father and has been fully refinished inside and out and now is a focal piece in my clients bedroom. We love how this one turned out!

Check out our reel on Instagram to see a quick video of this amazing piece!


Client photos are my favorite type of photos!

I completed this heirloom drop-front secretary last year while I was on my social media break, and never had the chance to show it off.

How freaking lovely does this look in my clients home?! Gah! 😍 Thanks for the photo Silvy!

Subtle changes can make a big impact. My client has owned these end tables for years but their orangy oak was just not working with her style anymore. Like many others, she loves the look of raw wood and asked us to lighten up the shelves and give them a bare wood look. We stripped, sanded, and sealed them up in General Finishes conversion varnish for protection.

Have a coffee table that needs an update? Check out this makeover we just wrapped up for our client!

Our client has had this Thomasville coffee table for over a decade, and has loved the size and storage functionality that it has. Over the years it has been well used by her and her family and was ready for a makeover. Her living room has bright white built-in’s and fireplace, so we updated her coffee table base in a white painted finish to match, and refinished the top to a “raw oak” look.

Who needs nightstands?! Customizable!

It’s not often I find the same pieces twice, but lucky for me, I found a second set of these vintage Kling nightstands! I finished a pair of these in 2019 (see photos) and almost kept them for myself. They’re solid maple and so adorable!

I have 2 available that are unfinished and ready to customize in any painted or stained top combo you’d like! I imagine these with light wood tops, light painted bottoms, and new gold hardware! How do you envision them?!

If you’re interested in customizing these, let me know!

They measure:
27.5” tall
17” wide
14.5” deep


Sneak peek! 👀 Raw oak for the win! What was once an all black painted coffee table, is now light and bright in my clients living room. Full reveal coming soon!

Do you have an old dresser that needs a makeover? Let us help!

It can be difficult to get rid of a piece of furniture that you know is great quality, but it no longer matches your style. That’s where we come in! We can take your outdated, but good quality furniture, and modernize it to better fit your style. Paint and new hardware work wonders!

For example, this solid-wood dresser was in excellent condition but the style was too outdated for my customers taste. She didn’t want to get rid of it, since it was of excellent quality, so she hired us to paint it in a custom charcoal grey color, with new matte black hardware to complement the rest of her decor.

We loved how this one came out!!

Up for sale is my personal antique oak sideboard. This piece has been with me since the beginning of my furniture career 7 years ago, but it is time for me to let someone else love it as much as I have.


Beautiful 100+ year old oak sideboard. Great working condition with beautiful carved handles and details. A real stunner! The original velvet silverware drawer has been newly lined, and all drawers slide well. The original finish shows some wear and tear consistent with age, and the other two drawers have some staining inside. But overall it’s an excellent piece of history!

48” Wide
23” Deep
49” Tall (top of backboard)

*please note this is my personal antique furniture in original condition. This piece has been maintained but not refinished or painted.

Asking $495 + tax

Pick up in Sterling. Can help deliver for an additional fee.

The power of paint! 💪🏼🤩 This cabinet had great bones and was very functional, but it’s dated wood tone and hardware no longer fit the modern aesthetic of my customers home. We brought this piece up to date with a flawless black painted finish with just the right amount of sheen. We added new soft gold k***s and an edgy fabric lined drawer to really make it pop! Love how this one turned out!


Details, details, details! 👀 If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that for me, details matter greatly! From choosing the perfect hardware or “jewelry” for a piece, adding a drawer liner for an unexpected pop, putting in the work to get the finish as smooth and flawless as possible, or many times, all of the above. I’m always working hard to make sure the small details aren’t overlooked and that your furniture is truly a one-of-a-kind piece.


Who else loves a crisp white piece of furniture?! 🙋‍♀️This petite server was given a fresh and modern update in Shoji White by with sparkling glass k***s from . I love how new and bright it now looks while still remaining timeless in a neutral color.


Bling Bling baby! 😍 These glass k***s were the perfect addition to this modern and classy petite server.

Who we are!

Hi everyone and welcome to Twig & Thyme Design! My name is Courtney Cole and I am the owner and artist behind Twig & Thyme Design. We are a home-based business located in Northern Virginia about 30 minutes outside of Washington, DC. We specialize in Custom Furniture Painting offering our clients a personalized experience in updating their dated furniture into something they love and are proud to display in their home. We update not only our customers pieces but we also take special “wish list” requests and source furniture pieces specific to our customers needs.

I started this hobby of mine back in 2016 while pursuing my career in fashion. On my days off I would frequent our local antique shops and had built quite a collection of my own painted furniture and vintage finds. When I decided I needed a career change, I dove into something I already knew and loved and my business, Twig & Thyme Design, was born!

The early stages of my business were mainly focused on sourcing unique furniture pieces and painting them for sale. As time went on I began having more and more of my very first customers asking for me to paint their personal pieces. I quickly realized there was a great need for this service in our area and began focusing my efforts more on Custom Furniture Painting over furniture sales. We now proudly serve dozens of customers a year by transforming their dated but beloved furniture into “new” pieces they adore.

In 2018 my fiance and partner of 13 years, Mario, decided to pursue his passion for photography and started his own small photography business. He now is my personal in-house photographer and I’d say we make a great team! He also is the extra set of hands and muscles behind all of the moving, picking up, and delivering of furniture with me.
