PAINTING VERONICA'S KITCHEN ISLAND & WINE CABINET TO A BLACK DISTRESSED FINISH & HER NEW BLACK & COPPER STOVE VENT HOOD
Veronica has a very large kitchen that is open to a very large great room.
As beautiful as it was, she thought there was 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 kitchen 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.
UPDATE: VERONICA'S NEW STOVE VENT HOOD
Isn't that beautiful!!
I got to go back to Veronica's to paint some new cornices that were built for her kitchen. These pictures are her new kitchen design job completed.
Her wine cabinet after I painted it. Wow! Love the dramatic lighting. (I lightly distressed this cabinet, but it doesn't show in this picture.)
These are the wood cornices that were built for her kitchen windows. I painted them the same black as the island and wine cabinet. Then I painted metallic copper in the middle. After the metallic copper paint dried the carpenter attached custom wrought iron pieces that fit over the copper.
BACK TO THE ORIGINAL POST:
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.
