House Beautiful!

Working in a beautiful kitchen this past week, glazing cabinets & trim in the fabulous home. This is the breakfast area, picture is taken from the edge of a very large wrap around island. It's where the sink is along with set of bar stools---perfect spot for after-school or late-night snack, homework, etc.
This chandelier was off-white with the leaves a light green...until I took some paints & glazes to this piece. A closer view is below. With 50+ cabinet doors & drawers, PLUS the crown molding, baseboards, etc., it took the hands of 5 of us over about 5 days to complete. Many hands make light work...OK, not exactly light work!
Stove, hood and island receive a different treatment; painted black & distressed.

The home is gorgeous but it's not mine. I have worked on a number of faux finishing projects throughout the Georgia home; master suite, 2-story vaulted LR. The DR is next on the list! I wish I could show you ALL of it. Truely looks like pages from a magazine!!!

Wonderful faux job...both the cabinets and the chandelier.

Congrats to your hubby for the Grand Cayman vacation fun was that!

Thanks for the link to your daughter's wedding blog. It is one of the best I've seen and I've passed the link on to a friend...her daughter is getting married and was going to sign up for one of the wedding websites....I suggested she sign up for a free blog. This will show her how wonderful they can be!
