PAINTING VERONICA'S KITCHEN ISLAND & WINE CABINET A BLACK DISTRESSED SPECIAL FINISH

PAINTING VERONICA'S KITCHEN ISLAND & WINE CABINET A BLACK DISTRESSED SPECIAL FINISH

Veronica has a very large kitchen that is open to a very large great room.
As beautiful as it was, she thought there was just too much brown and beige. 


She thought some black accents would break up all of that brown and beige.
She asked me to paint her island and her wall wine cabinet.  
I painted some samples for her and this is the one she chose.


Painted black and distressed the edges.


Her wine cabinet was open and did not have doors.  She had new doors made and added glass to them.  Also, she added lights inside so you could see the wine.
I painted the inside of the wine cabinet black and more distressed than the outside.



This is Joe Henry working on her new tile.  He is a contractor and has his own company.  He does beautiful work!
Her vent-a-hood was very large and stained wood like the rest of her cabinets.  She asked me to paint some black on it to see what that would look like.  But, she had her heart set on a huge round black metal one with copper bands.  So she said she would just wait for that to be ordered.  She even invited me to come back and take pictures!  That, I will certainly do and share the pictures with you.


There was a lot of construction, so lots of dust.  See the orbs?
I really enjoyed working with Veronica.
Maybe I'll get to work with her again.

  8. Wow, what a difference! These pieces are beautiful, and I love that bubbled glass in the wine cabinet. That's a gorgeous finish you gave her. So nice to meet you on Say G'day Saturday!

    1. Yes. She used a decorative glass for the doors. I think she got the glass from a stained glass store. The cabinet was really beautiful after painted.
