two tone kitchen re-do

Here's a kitchen we just recently finished. The granite counter tops and
beautiful tile back splash were new, which made this kitchen look amazing
just as it was. The cabinets were in pretty good condition, but had a little
water damage, and the blonde finish was a little dated.
Our client decided to go with a two-toned finish. . .
The main body is finished in antique white with walnut glazing.
We installed a beadboard wrap and baseboard around the bar,
which is finished in Espresso with black glaze.
Bead board was also added to all the sides. . .
On the opposite wall, theres this little desk area. . .

 Which was finished in the Espresso as well :)
Needless to say, we were delighted with the results!

stunning vintage sideboard

This amazing sideboard belonged to a client who happened to
pick it up at a yard sale for a VERY, VERY good deal.
Even in this condition I could tell what amazing potential it had.
The tones throughout my clients home was soft and soothing greys. . .so
naturally, she decided to go with a grey that would compliment her surroundings.

Since her decor is more on the modern side, we went with a minimal amount
of distressing. . .just enough to accentuate the amazing designs and turned legs.
Oh my. . .those are beau-ti-ful legs!!

The hardware was switched out for a chunkier, more updated style which also
added a lot of personality and charm :)

As far as a finish coat, we went with a semi-gloss to give the luster a warm glow. . .
Simple, yet stunning.

Color: Gauntlet Grey by Sherwin Williams
Hardware: Hobby Lobby
Now off to our next project!!
