....just got back from Montana. I tell you...i am in love. It was snowing there and i saw so many beautiful animals. My husband is insanely jealous of this little adventure that I have encountered. the house is just turning out amazing. Well as promised....I will continue will the tour of my last remodel. Here is the guest bathroom. The transiition of this bath was amazing but I am quite sure that I don't have before pics. Mirror was $39.99....can u believe? gorgeous! Ok....for my next pride and joy. these were very plain jane cabinets that I painted brown and distressed.. I applied a raised stencil in which I repeated the pattern (lowes $2.98) I used a terra cotta raised effects paste from Michaels. i went ahead and painted brown on top. I lightly sanded so the terra cotta showed through slightly. I used a black antiquing glaze all over (lowes). Finally....last detailed step....I gently rubbed a light gold accent only on raised stencil. Very subtle and very carefully. Simply the most stunning cabinets i have ever seen. Pictures never do it justice. My client almost cried! Don't you love those antiqued olive walls! Really a low cost fix to a bathroom that now looks like it could be on tour! I actually had to steal my own idea and I did this same thing to a piece of furniture in my house! I love stealing my own ideas!
Do you ever have those days where everything seems to be difficult and everything seems to not go your way? Well....that seems like my everyday anymore. Every time I plan anything....nothing seems to go as planned. My time just slips away and before you know it....it's 2am in the morning. Enough on that......as promised.... the start of the tour of the home that I remodeled. Enjoy!
I had some Beautiful bronze trim that ran along the hood in that space that would have tied the iron together, but my client's husband decided he wanted the hood to be simple. I kind of think it needs that bit of bronze.....
I did all of the finish on all of the cabinets icluding this gorgeous island. I used a stencil on the doors with a rubbed gold paint. And the island legs just speak for themselves. The legs are on the other end as well. I also higlighted them with the gold as well. The base on the island was a chocalate paint with a black glaze. Of course...I hand distressed all of the cabinetry. here is a little secret.....the gorgeous hardware is from Hobby Lobby for $2.99 and that not even the sale price. If I had got it on sale it would have been $1.50! I blackened it and added the rubbed gold as well.
Ok now this little cabinet was built to cover there phone/security system. Plus it acts as a catch all station where the can charge there phone, leave the keys.ect.ect. I left the iron open so they could here there system, but it cleverly masks the ugliness of it. Love it! As you can see....quite a bit different. We moved the stove to this main wall so it would be the focal! I was also able to include a walk in pantry with the new design. This ends the tour for today! Off to more projects!!!!
