Last month this wednesday-woodworks post discussed this clients options with their kitchen refinish. This client decided to go with TC Millworks suggestion and build new shaker style doors and drawer fronts. The cherry finish looked outdated and unharmonious with the newer nuetral countertops and tilework and had begun to flake and peel in several areas.
The ivory lacquer brightened the entire space and created a larger, loftier looking kitchen.
This client also had a few minor issues that needed attention. A foster puppy had chewed the edges and legs of the family coffee table so a little sanding and spraying brought it back to brand new. There was also need for closet remodels, a vanity, and full length mirrors for two teenage daughters. After touring the house and getting a few ideas, we decided to take a neglected dark finish desk sitting idly in a corner and transform it into the needed vanity.
After refinishing in white and creating a mild distress, adding a robin's egg blue chair and antique style mirror (sourced from pbteen) the vanity was cute as a button complete.
The client also took TC Millworks suggestion to reorient the bedroom set to take better advantage of a great view of the pool area and create more practical traffic flow. Full lenth mirrors added depth to the room and provided the best tool for the girls to take full advantage of their new closets.
