A fun, freehand pattern on a dresser:
another fun freehand pattern:
simple glazed makeover:
glazed cabinets, doors, trim and walls.
After (Floors still had to be installed, but my cabinet painting was finished!)
Living room Built-In's before:
(the faces of the cabinets are cloth for the sound system speakers)
Built ins before:
Built ins after:
a bar, painted a chic grey, then distressed:
a bar/china cabinet makeover:
antique buffet makeover:
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!
the other side of the kitchen:
before: white MDF cabinetry. i painted it to look like espresso-stained wood:
taken from wood to "country-beachhouse" look, with a pretty matte gray color, accentuated with a light gray glaze in the bevels:
table and chairs set before:
kitchen table/chairs makeover:
boring and worn brown wood:
painted the bottoms a distressed black, and gave the top a new sheen. it's like new furniture!
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.
don't you love this vintage-looking crystal hardware she chose?
the black island!
this butler's pantry went from boring wood, to a sweet, yellow antique finish!
a beautiful fireplace, antiqued with black paint:
a bar, antiqued with sage green:
a kitchen island, painted with a distressed olive tone:
kitchen cabinetry, antiqued with a cream and brown glaze:
this bathroom cabinetry was old, white MDF, and my client wanted something more "italian" styled, to match the rest of the newly-renovated bathroom:
this client wanted their bathroom sink cabinetry to match this pretty medicine cabinet she had bought previously:
sooo, i used a faux painting technique to match the old cabinetry to match her stand:
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!
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!
