I finished the big cabinetry project I've been working on the past few weeks. whew!

I faux finished kitchen cabinets and island, the kitchen desk, the living room built in's, a built in cabinetry piece in the living room, and a bathroom cabinet. 

Here's some of the project:

We did a more traditional heavy antiquing on the exterior cabinets, and then the island was a special faux finish that was heavily distressed and aged looking with green.

Here's a lightened picture of the island, though it doesn't do it justice:

and a photo of the bathroom vanity I painted:

and the built in cabinet in the living room. The client is very into French country/heavy distress/etc.

fun stuff!

I love doing these types of heavy faux finishes. In this case, it was a combo of "make this piece look like this picture" and then also sort of making up my own finishes that match their descriptions.

Happy Friday, have a fun weekend everyone!


  1. Lovely! Those windows in the kitchen are also incredible.

  2. I agree beautiful work. You have a great weekend yourself! Alison

  3. It looks awesome!! What kind of paint do you use on wood furniture? Also do you paint the distressing on it or sand it? Do you have any tutorials on distressing furniture? Love your work!

  4. There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game. Both boys and girls feel the impact of just a moment’s pleasure, for the rest of their lives. Read More Read More Read More
