Playing with paint

Just a couple of sample cabinet fronts I've been designing to show clients interested in seeing what can be done to update cabinetry or furniture.  I have a few more, but haven't been able to get a good photograph of them - maybe when it stops raining and I can shoot without a flash in the studio.  One of the others is a medium blue with very subtle, lighter blue glaze on it, one is a soft yellow with an off-white "distressed" look top color, and the other is a sage with brown glaze and true distressing.

The rest of the story....

Didn't Paul Harvey used to say that?  Am I dating myself?  
Here is a photo of the entry/dining room columns.  Today I sealed them with a satin polyurethane.  Thank you to the owners of this lovely home for giving me the honor of creating a new look for them.

The little things...

At the moment I'm busy with the little things - painting a bed for a client, a sample cabinet door for a potential client in Odessa,  and other sample cabinet doors for potential clients.  While I'm at it, I  thought I'd post a picture of a living "little thing" that won't be little much longer......Sophia!  She will be four months old this week, and is about 50 pounds and 23" high at her back.

Beautiful home

What a beautiful home I had the opportunity to work in!   These columns are in the master bath, but there were 4 more that I painted just like these in the foyer and dining area.  Those, however, were 12 feet tall.  It was hard work due to the fact that once you begin on a column, you must continue until finished in order to get the best results, but it was rewarding.  Going from white to this was a huge change!  I love my work!
