PAINTING A BLACK & GOLD DISTRESSED & AGED FINISH ON A KITCHEN ISLAND
Last week, I finished painting this kitchen island and two other pieces of furniture in my client's kitchen. They designed this island and had a cabinet shop build it. So, it was totally new wood when I started. My client chose one of my stencil designs that she wanted me to emboss on the island. Priming the new wood and embossing the design were the first two steps.
Then, I painted a multi-layered old and distressed finish.
This kind of finish takes several days to complete, but I finally finished it.
I used a metallic old gold to highlight the design and other areas.
My clients are very, very happy!! I am, too!
As far as the other two pieces of furniture in the kitchen that I painted...my client asked me to paint a built in desk/bookshelf and a china cabinet in the same colors as the island, but different techniques. All three pieces, newly painted, really made her kitchen look sooo nice and tied in very nicely with her granite counter tops and other decor in her kitchen.
