Cabinet Trends

People are branching out with their cabinet choices since it is no longer necessary to replace the whole shebang to get a different look.  Paint, stain or a combination of the two can cover up your existing cabinet finish including those white melamine/thermafoil cabinets that are standard in many homes.

A current trend is different colors for the top and bottom cabinets as shown here at Apartment Therapy.

I can get on board with this since I love color.  Feels a little daring, a little outside the box. That’s how we roll.

Another trend is to paint or stain the island or peninsula a different color than the cabinets.

Here are some new finishes I recently made samples of thanks to Ande Crenshaw at Mojo Faux

There is no need to play it completely safe with your cabinet finish because it can be changed just like your wall color.

If you are ready for a change, call me and let’s create a custom finish for your cabinets!

 

Commissioned Art

I’ve painted on many different surfaces this year with many different kinds of paint.  I’ve recently had the opportunity to do a commissioned 4’x6′ acrylic on canvas abstract painting. Talk about exciting!

I love my job. Comments are welcome because I find myself without words. That is why I paint.
