SHANNA'S NEWLY PAINTED, BLACK DISTRESSED KITCHEN CABINETS

Shanna had planned for a very long time to re-do her kitchen.  She felt the floor and the cabinet colors kind of ran together.  She said you couldn't tell where the floor stopped and the cabinets began.  She didn't like that!  For a while, she had been dreaming of black cabinets in her kitchen.


So, she called me.  I had painted her mother's island and she said that was exactly what she wanted...she thought!!  She was concerned about the rubbed edges not looking right in her kitchen, her white counters and back splash not matching, and several worries.
While I was painting, she got happier and happier and, even thrilled!  She was loving her black kitchen.


And, it really did turn out soooo nicely!!  Her white counters, back splash, woodwork and shutters looked just beautiful with her new black.  They were a wonderful contrast and kept her kitchen from looking like a black hole.


This was her kitchen island "before".  She and her husband designed a new look for it and called a carpenter to build their new design before I painted the kitchen.  And, she added a new granite top.


This is her island "after" and I think they did a great job of designing and the carpenter did a great job putting it all together.


This is her butler's pantry and I painted it to match the kitchen.  It looks really nice from the dining room and front door, as you walk into the house.


And, this is Charlie in front and he was FULL of personality and just had fun doing his own thing, getting in trouble (a lot).  He was so cute.  And, that is Little Bear and he's very old and Charlie just couldn't keep from pestering him.  They were so cute together.
Shanna's new black kitchen turned out so, so nicely and she just couldn't stop saying how happy she was with the major transformation.  The black and white really did look like a "show" kitchen.
Thank you, Shanna!!
