Updated Furniture

Dining room furniture needed an update to a more sophisticated look, and the soft, aged black finishes help to balance a very large room. This dining area is juxtaposed diagonally from the large mural over built-in cabinetry seen in an earlier post (Mimi's mural). Hutch (below in old "pecan" country look), table and chairs, display cabinet and hutch were all redone in a more contemporary satin black with light distressing.

Kitchen cabinets: Mimi; before and after

Kitchen was bright blinding white... now repainted and glazed to emphasize moldings and panels, and to create a warmer, more intimate setting.

Mimi's master bath.

This bath had all stock white cabinets. The homeowner loves color and wanted to create a vibrant personal space with the warmth of red-on-red.
