I'm painting an 8' tall pantry door to make it look very old and worn. This is a 4'6"x 20" glass insert for the pantry door. I designed and had to make part of my stencils. When my template is dry, I will freehand over everything, so it looks old, too. It will say La Patisserie...(the cake shop). Lots and LOTS of measuring and hours involved in this project!!!

Just finished painting Jackie's kitchen cabinets. The finish was oak and stained that orangey red color and she hated it!! I had to think about shades of brown that would still blend with her mahogany, reddish shutters and flooring. She will be replacing her chandelier and get knobs for the cabinets. Looks very nice now and she's very, very happy! I also painted her kitchen island a soft blue to match the fabric in her kitchen. Photo of the island is below this posting.
KITCHEN ISLAND I PAINTED FOR JACKIE'S KITCHEN
This is Jackie's kitchen island.
I painted it a soft blue to match the fabric in her kitchen and embellished it with black and metallic gold. It looks like a fine piece of furniture now, instead of a kitchen cabinet.
(Remember: metallic paints reflect, depending on how the light is hitting the piece of furniture)

SPECIAL DISTRESSED FINISH ON A 7' HIGH MIRROR FRAME
I painted this 7' high mirror frame for a client.
It was green and I painted a special distressed finish with black, brown and "old gold". She hung it on a very high wall above her fireplace and after it was hung, I went back and hi-lited some of the raised design with the "old gold" paint so it would show up better since it was so high on the wall. My client was very happy with the transformation!
