PAINTING A SPECIAL AGED FINISH ON CABINETS FOR DEBBIE'S MASTER BATH RENOVATION

Today, Debbie is very, very happy!!
The six weeks long renovation of her master bath is almost over.  They asked me to paint a special finish on their bath and closeet cabinets and I finished painting today.
Her cabinets were pickled/white washed oak.
 I forgot to take a "before" photo and this is after I primed the wood.
They were working with a decorator and asked me to do them a sample board with a gray browny dark finish.  My sample is what you see on the counter top.  Also, I'm painting a special finish on some mirror molding and I showed them several different ways and depths of color.  They liked that I had given them several choices and they picked out how they wanted the molding to be painted.  
This is the special finish that I painted and it looks soooo good with their new granite and floor and shower tiles.  Their bathroom is really big and that shower tile is a special feature to me.  I love that tile and how everything looks so good together.  
They're going to have a seamless glass enclosure around the shower.  
Won't that be beautiful, too.  
This is the other side of the room.  (Waiting for the lights, mirrors and molding to be installed.)
AND, here are Penny and Yankee.  They kept coming into the bathroom to make sure I was staying busy.  Penny kept pulling on my socks.  As I was leaving, I wanted to take another picture and had to wake them up.  They weren't too happy about that and wouldn't even look at me. 
 "Go away!!  I'm trying to nap, here!"
A close up of the cabinet finish.
A few years ago, I painted Debbie's kitchen and dining room cabinets a special finish, too.  
It's so nice that they asked me to come back for the master bath re-do.
Everything turned out really beautiful!
Thank you, Debbie!!
