RE-PAINTING CHRISTA'S VENT-A-HOOD FROM "ANTIQUE COPPER" TO MATCHING HER KITCHEN CABINET SPECIAL FINISHA few months ago, I painted Christa's kitchen cabinets. For her vent-a-hood, she wanted me to paint my "antique copper" special finish. This is the link to Christa's kitchen with the "antique copper" finish.
She lived with the "antique copper" finish for a few days and called and told me she thought it was just too dark for the lighting in her kitchen. We decided to paint it to match the kitchen cabinets. Because of the texture on the vent-a-hood it is a little different, but looks very, very, very nice.
If she had decorated with copper pots and copper accessories, the "antique copper" would have looked great, but she just couldn't live with the darker color. And, my client is the "boss".
Actually, I agree with her. I like (LOVE) the lighter vent-a-hood.
This desk and cabinet are in the room next to the kitchen and
she asked me to paint them to match the kitchen cabinets.
It didn't have doors so, she had two made before I started painting.
The doors made a huge difference and she said they would hide her clutter.
This is a close-up of the special finish on the desk..
The kitchen is a different technique, not crackled, but they're both the same color.
I only have a few more painting projects at Christa's house. The different projects that I've done have made a dramatic difference to her already beautiful home.
I'll miss working with them and playing with little Cody.
