CURBSIDE TREASURES!


It's been awhile since I've posted something because the project I've been on requires secrecy.  At least until it opens....hopefully soon!  In the meantime, I'll remind you that another man's trash is still trash, until you refinish it!  Also, give it a good cleaning.

These are all pieces I picked up off the curb.  They had good bones, but their finishes were worn or outdated.  Some fancy paint techniques later, and they're as good as new!  UP CYCLE!  

 

LOVE THE IDEA, BUT HATE THE WORK....CONTACT ME!

90's ORANGE OAK CABINETS

Ah yes, orange oak cabinets!  On the plus side, oak is solid and durable and will last you decades...unfortunately, the finish will not.  Over the years, the oil sealer starts to craze, crack and yellow over time...hence the glowing orange.  If the original set up is still functional, then refinishing is always an option.  You can also give it a more substantial look by adding trim and base board around the island and cabinets.  Check out some of my past projects and get inspired to do it yourself...or just hire me.

There's still hope!

FAKIN' THE WOODGRAIN

Today's project was at the Wheeler School's new performance auditorium.  I made a little gray panel in the ceiling disappear...with paint, not witchcraft.

Now you see it, now you don't!  Well, you kind of see it but not as much.
