Cabinet Finish

Just finished this built-in cabinet in a Mason Creme finish which is a off white base coat with a very subtle overall glaze and a detailed glaze in the profile areas. This built-in had more TLC than my paint job! The decorator had the cabinet maker add the 3 drawers at the bottom to make it taller, then dressed it up with additional trim to the ceiling. A real custom piece now! Can't wait to see the new hardware the decorator selects.

Kitchen "Before and After" Cabinet Re-Stain

This kitchen got quite the "overhaul". The original blue counter tops are now a beautiful granite. Cabinet finish was almost a natural oak stain which I Re-stained darker. Gave the island a new look with a coat of black. New hardware and new back splash and  like magic.... a new kitchen!! I also did the same Re-stain treatment on the original oak in the adjoining rooms' book cases and fireplace mantle. 

Work in progress! You can see the darker is the re-stain area and the lighter is the original
