this is a nursery makeover that i did (all in one day!) on a budget:
Photobucket

the stripes really pack the punch for the whole room! we wanted a really graphic, and colorful space, that was modern and not too babyish.



i also made the elephant and giraffe silhouette paintings above the crib:
Photobucket

i painted the little rocker bright orange to give some "pop" to the room...i think it accomplished its task :)

in this case, my client had already painted the tree, but didn't like the way that it turned out. i simply went in and edited it and voila! what a cute tree for baby:

a bar/china cabinet makeover:

detail shot:
Photobucket

antique buffet makeover:
Photobucket

Photobucket


this kitchen was covered in dated white (water damaged!) MDF cabinetry. i did a faux painting technique to bring it back to the 21st century (hah!) by giving it a look that replicates cherry wood for far less money than replacing an entire kitchen's worth of cabinets!

Photobucket

the other side of the kitchen:
Photobucket

Photobucket

before: white MDF cabinetry. i painted it to look like espresso-stained wood:
Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

taken from wood to "country-beachhouse" look, with a pretty matte gray color, accentuated with a light gray glaze in the bevels:

Photobucket

Photobucket

table and chairs set before:
Photobucket

and, after:
Photobucket

Photobucket




kitchen table/chairs makeover:
boring and worn brown wood:
Photobucket

Photobucket
painted the bottoms a distressed black, and gave the top a new sheen. it's like new furniture!

Photobucket

this kitchen was beautiful, but it was lacking the personality that my client wanted it to have! by painting the outer cabinetry a pretty sage green color with lots of distressing and aging, and painting the island a black distressed finish, we gave it a country farmhouse feel.

Photobucket

Photobucket

don't you love this vintage-looking crystal hardware she chose?

Photobucket

the black island!

Photobucket

this butler's pantry went from boring wood, to a sweet, yellow antique finish!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket

a beautiful fireplace, antiqued with black paint:

Photobucket

a bar, antiqued with sage green:

Photobucket

a kitchen island, painted with a distressed olive tone:

Photobucket

kitchen cabinetry, antiqued with a cream and brown glaze:

Photobucket

this bathroom cabinetry was old, white MDF, and my client wanted something more "italian" styled, to match the rest of the newly-renovated bathroom:

Photobucket

this client wanted their bathroom sink cabinetry to match this pretty medicine cabinet she had bought previously:

Photobucket

sooo, i used a faux painting technique to match the old cabinetry to match her stand:
Photobucket

Photobucket

this built in cabinetry was all white, but i came up with a plan to make the chic city condo a bit more stylish by adding a chocolate brown backing, then a solid chocolate line to the bevels in the doors - much more stylish!

Photobucket

before kitchen:

Photobucket

after kitchen:

Photobucket

i painted this built-in and the fireplace mantle a creamy off-white, then heavily distressed it with glaze and antique lines. then, i topped it all off with a nice decorative design that i hand-painted in the center of the mantle!

Photobucket

Photobucket

in this room, i used a flat enamel to basecoat the walls, and a high-gloss of the same soft grey to do the gourd pattern on the wall. the overall effect results in a wall-paper like look.

simple glazework inside a dining room, and faux stone-brick painted on the arched doorway for an "italian" style room:

Photobucket

this powder room was painted an olive green, then i did a dark brown glaze on top of it. to finish it all off, i did a bronze/black swirl decorative pattern on the tops of the walls.

Photobucket

decorative swirls in a kitchen to mimic the ironwork in the chandelier:

Photobucket

Photobucket
i painted a white silhouette of a horse on a chic, downtown loft. such a cool idea!

decorative pattern hand-painted onto a wall to resemble the look of wallpaper:

Photobucket

Photobucket

before: this floral fireplace was not fitting in well with the university of georgia-themed office at my client's home:

Photobucket

after!

Photobucket
i painted a bulldog, the famous 'arches', the "G" and a UGA helmet to complement the rest of the room!

  6. Saw you post on my site and had to come see what you were up to...this stuff is too cool! I know these are all for different clients/locations, but your style reads very French to me. Maybe I'm making projections, but even that football room looks a little French. Now that's the mark of true style!
    Great work!
