Last week, I finished painting a special finish on some master bath cabinets. I took lots of pictures, but never got my post written.
So, today I was back at this really beautiful home starting a special finish on the kitchen cabinets and saw that the hardware had been installed in the bathroom and looked so nice and wanted to share it with you.
If you remember, last summer I worked on that New Orleans styled house for
He builds truly beautiful and very custom homes. I'm so glad that he found my name as a painter because I enjoy working with him and love the different projects/challenges he has presented to me.
This is not a newly built house. It's a remodel of the whole downstairs.
He showed me a picture of how he wanted these cabinets to look and the colors and I made a sample board for him.
As I was distressing the cabinets, I had to use my thumbnail to make those dark marks. I had painted an undercoat and wetting it with the top coat before it had cured, was making it come off. So, the only way to make it work was gently use my thumbnail. By the time I was finished, my thumbnail was really short. One of the tough guys working there suggested I get some "false fingernails" to use next time. I guess I could find some at the drugstore. I was wondering how he knew about "false fingernails". Actually, it is a very good idea! (for next time)
When I went back to look at the new kitchen cabinets to see what Richard wanted me to do, they had already installed the granite and faucets in the bathroom and they looked so nice with the paint finish.
They made a new mirror frame for the large mirror and Richard had me paint it to match the cabinet finish. You can see it in these pictures.
The large mirror hasn't been put back on the wall yet, but I know it will look soooo nice.
In the kitchen and bathroom, one of Richard's guys made new cabinet doors. They kept the framing part, just made new doors.
I've started on the kitchen and will show it to you when I'm finished.
Then, I think I'm painting the bedroom furniture for their totally newly decorated room.
I might be painting it black...I'll show you.
