Cute Bedroom!!

Headboard Wall

Another young girls bedroom done and ready to be decked out! This is a very large bedroom with 11 foot ceilings. Mom and daughter requested black for the ceiling and I jumped right in!! The two pink rectangle areas on both sides of the headboard accent art will have 3 mirrors on top of each other on both sides. The walls that surround the decorative areas are a metallic silver with glitter! Someday I hope to have the chance to see the room furnished!

FIREPLACE MANTLE "Before and After"

BEFORE picture with samples of possible finishes



It's funny in this business of painting how I find myself usually painting over wood whether it be furniture or trim in a house. This project the client was ready for some wood. So here you go a before of the painted mantel and after pictures of the Faux Wood I painted. There are also 2 columns that were white and are now wood finish. I think the client made a good choice with this finish!

Kitchen Cabinets

These cabinets are about 35 years old; the original pulls were smack dab in the center of each very dark stained door! So they got a good prepping, paint and clear coat with new hardware. This kitchen turned out so cute!!

Almost done!

I'm not sure when I'll be able to get a picture of this room all put together and decorated. That's why you're seeing it almost done! I just have a ceiling medallion to paint; then the electrician and decorator as well has the drapery installers will complete the picture!!

The lucky occupant is going into her freshmen year of high school. I'm sure she can't wait to get out of her sisters room and have this very special place to escape to!

Finally ran by church and snapped a few pictures of the latest banners I did for the Easter Season.

I painted the middle one above the alter last year. The two new ones for this year are a little brighter and I'm gona say that I planned it like that!

Finished Bathroom

This Bathroom is finally complete! Every inch of wall and ceiling has a finish on it. The Ceiling is a white polished venetian plaster. The walls are a vertical texture metallic with glaze and aged stencil detail above the tile. Door trim, window treatments and built in are done in a metallic aged furniture finish. The pictures were taken with my cel-phone so it's really more classy in person! This is an old craftman style home that is getting a hugh makeover! Next I'll be doing the livingroom ceiling and walls!

Painted Bathroom Cabinets


This is a large master bathroom that has "his" and "hers" vanities on both sides with a tub in the middle. The cabinets were a pink pickled finish and white hardware. The final finished faux is gray. I started with a dark base color then painted the the gray on top and wiped the edges then dropped a glaze in the profile areas. The tile around the mirror is part of the remodel as well as the new counter tops. Actually the counter tops were raised and a piece of trim added for that extension. It all turned out very nice! Another happy client!

This is a nicely designed and constructed pillar that is the corner post to the raised dining room area. I've finished it with a simple glaze treatment which in this case proves that sometimes less is more. It looks great with the surrounding elements. In the background you can see the iron stair spindles that I also added a touch of metallic to.

These awesome iron pieces that I've be painting will be installed Monday at the entry of a Winery.

Mike at Capital Steel did the iron work which are huge and heavy!

Shout out to DJ and Chad for giving me the pleasure to do this job and providing a great shop to work in that has great light and heat. Also to the "muscle men" that jump to help when I need these massive pieces moved.

The top and bottom curved areas will have iron letters that bolt on

Wine bottle is iron as well; which I've painted similar to their labels

Just sprayed black which will match the others when complete
I have two more to complete; I've attached a photo of one that I started on today with the base of black DTM paint.

Color inspiration from "the land of color"!!

I want to share this cute graphic of colors since the year 2000 to 2013. "The Land of Color" is always on top of the latest color trends.
I personally did not paint one room or piece of furniture in last years "Tangerine Tango". Not one client even thought about it!! This years "Emerald" might be in my spray gun because I can really see this color on a piece of furniture or as an accent wall. I'll patiently wait to see where "Emerald" will take me in 2013!!
