Now that I’ve recovered from The One Room Challenge, I wanted to share another big project that I finished during the same time period. Yes, this is why I was crazy-insane-exhausted. But I love it. I really do. After working in a corporate job for over 20 years, working for myself, using my hands and creativity is so rewarding.
This is the largest client kitchen job I have undertaken to date, and I’m so happy with how it came together. The homeowner has amazing taste, and has been making changes to their home over the five years that they’ve lived there, and the cabinets were another step in the process. They have already replaced the countertops and floors, and a new backsplash and cabinet hardware are in the works as well.
As you can see, the kitchen was already beautiful. But they weren’t in keeping with her style, and they showed every speck of dust.
She has slowly been making over their home, putting her own stamp on it. As you can see through the kitchen in the photo below, there is a stunning built-in that they added, which is the same darker gray color that we used on the cabinets.
The countertops and the flooring have also been replaced. The countertops are a gorgeous white and gray quartz.
They also have this lovely “drop zone” with glass cabinetry for display, and loads of addition storage. Let me just say, I want one of these.
For colors, the homeowner already had them chosen – Repose Gray and Gauntlet Gray – both of them Sherwin Williams colors (color matched for Benjamin Moore’s Advance paint).
The result is stunning.
On another exciting note, I have made my painting business legit – I’m now an LLC and am bonded and insured. The whole nine yards. I have kept this to myself for the most part – not sure why, fear of failure maybe? But, I wanted to share it with you because I’m really excited about the projects that I’ve hired to do, and the great people I’ve met as a result of starting this little business. It’s so rewarding to create and grow something of your own.
So, if you’re in the Dayton/Cincinnati area, and have a kitchen or bathroom that needs a lift, give me a shout – firstname.lastname@example.org.
