PAINTING A GLAZED DARK FINISH ON KATHRYN & SEAN'S KITCHEN CABINETS & STAIR RAILINGS & LINK TO PAINT COLORS & TECHNIQUE EBOOK
Kathryn and Sean asked me to paint their kitchen cabinets and stair railings.
Both were that pickled/whitewashed oak.
I showed them some samples and this finish is the one they chose for the kitchen cabinets.
It's several layers of paint and sealer.
This finish looked really good with their granite and backsplash tiles.
Their floors were stained concrete and the cabinet finish looked great with the flooring, too.
My hands get a little messy with these cabinet finishes. But, they clean up just fine.
They were very happy with the way the kitchen turned out.
Then, I showed them a couple of samples for the stair railings. They chose the one on the left.
Sean had stained his front door a really dark color and they wanted the railings to be dark, too.
The dark railings look so nice, now.
Doesn't that look nice!
The "before" pictures are below. The paint made such a difference.
One of their friends stained their concrete floors and put this design in the entry.
It's Fiesta time in San Antonio. You can see Kathryn's Fiesta wreath on the front door with lots of brightly colored ribbons. Fiesta is a really big thing here. It's fun! fun! fun! for several days.
Yesterday, I saw a lady with each one of her fingernails painted a different color.
