PAINTING BLACK DISTRESSED CABINETS & EMBOSSING LEAVES IN METALLIC GOLD & SILVER

The builder of this New Orleans style house asked me to paint the master bath cabinets a distressed black.  Also, he asked me to do an embossing design on the doors in metallic silver and gold.


This bath has a clawfoot bathtub with a black and silver chandelier hanging over it.


Then, he gave me a mirror frame and asked that I paint the same finish and embossing on it.


I worked as fast as I could because he was having the mirror installed and needed this frame to help secure it in place.


Today, I had to go back to touch up the tiny nail holes made when they installed the mirror frame.
All of my work is finally finished and I'm really proud of the way everything turned out.
They gave me some really special "custom" things to do.
Tomorrow, the house is closing and I'm sure the new owner is thrilled to be moving in.
Thank you, for letting me be a small part of this beautiful home.

  4. Love the black distressed cabinets, they turned out amazing! I love it when people are able to step out of the comfort zone of white white white and let an artist really showcase their work.

    Great job..
