PAINTING RED, METALLIC SILVER & STAIN ~ A SPECIAL FINISH ON A KITCHEN ISLAND
Debbie has such a beautiful home! She loves decorating and it shows.
It was time for a change, so she asked me to do a couple of things in her kitchen. She wanted my "antique silver" finish on her vent-a-hood. For her kitchen island we discussed a couple of colors and finishes. Her kitchen, breakfast room, stairwell and living room are all open and connected. I looked around and knew an "interesting" bright shade of red would look really nice on her island.
I painted the red and swiped a metallic silver on the corbels and tiny trim.
Then, stained and sealed it all.
I love this shade of red. It's kind of a salmony orangy red, A little different from Debbie's decor, but I thought it looked really, really good. And, it's not really this bright in her kitchen...my camera flash made it look brighter than it is.
I love the red and silver combination!
This part of the island faces the stove and vent-a-hood. The vent it has a fleur de lis on it.
So, I embossed this fleur de lis on a couple of the island door fronts and
added the metallic silver.
This island is not distressed, just painted and stained.
Thank you, Debbie!
