This is the mantel I shared earlier on my blog, when I had only primed it. Finally finished it today and it looks sooo good with the wallpaper and carpeting in this newly built home. Also, a close up photo of the faux "old" finish I painted. I really love doing "aged/old" finishes. The client and designer were also very happy with the way the mantel turned out.

This is the black and gold cabinet that I painted and shared earlier on my blog. It has finally been installed in the beautiful powder room. I painted the cabinet black and rubbed away the black in areas so the original stained wood would show through, to match the faux woodgrain sink they installed on top. The mirror to be installed is black and gold, also. So proud of this! This cabinet was built a long time ago by my client's grandfather and she found a wonderful way to use it in her new home.
This is a beautiful upstairs powder room. I painted the antique cabinet and mirror to match the green in the birds and leaves on the wallpaper. (I do believe this little cabinet used to be the top of an old bureau.) This is a close up of the aged finish I painted. I aged the bright green paint with an anqituing glaze that I mixed and love how it turned out! These greens are my colors!!! Love these greens!

This is the top half of the pantry door. It's leaning against a cabinet in my studio. And, this opening is where the painted glass panel will go. I am waiting for it to be picked up so it can be installed and will take more photos after it's installed in the beautiful new home. (15,000 sq. ft. of fabulous new home!!! being built.) This door was a primed white door and I painted it to look very old, like it came out of an old french pastry or cake shop.
