Cabinetry work

I don't always post photos of the faux finishes that I do on cabinetry, but I thought I'd show you guys this job I completed a few weeks ago. My client had her kitchen cabinets antiqued, and she decided she wanted to do the same to her built-ins in her living room. I had to match the finish to the kitchen cabinets, which was a challenge, but, mission accomplished and I was happy.

Check it out, before:

I know it's hard to see in this photo what I actually did, as far as a finish, so I took some close-up photos. You can tell that it definitely brightened up the space a bit, and broke up some of all that wood!

I did a light all-over glaze, then did antique lines in all of the bevels and corners. This made all of the woodwork really stand out.

  3. I'm a huge fan of wood but I have to admit this looks a hundred times better! The wood beaded board looks a lot richer as a backdrop and the stone fireplace really stands out now. Great job!!

  4. I REALLY like this. And I appreciate that you didn't do the whole thing in the new finish. I like the contrast.

  9. It was way to dark before, and overbearing. What a good Idea to leave the bead-board as it was before. It makes it a unique piece of furniture.
