PAINTING A GLAZED DARK SPECIAL FINISH ON KATHRYN & SEAN'S KITCHEN CABINETS & STAIR RAILINGS & LINK TO PAINT COLORS & TECHNIQUE EBOOK

 PAINTING A GLAZED DARK SPECIAL 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/white washed 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 special 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 and the paint made such a difference.
Their friend stained their concrete floors and put this design in the entry.  I think it's really beautiful.
It's Fiesta time in San Antonio and 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. 
FIESTA!!
Stail railing "before".
Kitchen cabinets "before".
It was so easy working there.  They gave me a key and every day I just came right in and started working...no interference and nice and quiet.  I always listen to my little radio.  I love "talk" radio.
Thank you Kathryn and Sean!
