I'm really excited about this kitchen makeover! These started out as typical golden stained oak cabinets. The homeowner had the cabinet maker do some magic. He added feet (for a furniture look)  in selected areas and visually raised some top cabinets using crown molding which added major detail to the original cabinets. Then I did "my thing" ~ Three different finishes. A black raisin with glaze is the darkest. Dark ash distressed and glazed finish met up with the dark. The island has a crackle finish with glaze and topped off with a metallic foil on the door profile. Sorry I don't have any before pictures. I actually didn't see this kitchen layout before I started the project. The homeowners (thinking they were going to tackle this project) had removed all the cabinets! They gave me a call ... were they in over their heads!!? The granite is also new. They are waiting on a diamond shaped tile back splash; then it will be complete!
