Here’s a nice one.     My customer needed a wall hung vanity. There are a million of them out there so why take a custom route; color, quality, specific size and so on, plus they had just done a custom tile shower and it was thru seeing photos of that job which brought me to using the 3D aluminum tile that is being used for the drawer fronts.   Here’s the CAD rendering:   The tile comes supplied in...

Mara has a post:   I had what I thought would be a enjoyable and easy job using skills that had not been exercised in awhile. A faux painting job on a beautiful simple case that needed a new base to elevate it higher and take out a sag in the middle.  I was excited by it and the client really loved what I did on an old  filing cabinet rescued from under the airport that got a very subtle deep red treatment.  The...

Here are some photos of the completed (minus the marble top) credenza. It looks bottom heavy without the top, but maybe I'll get a few shots later that include the top.  And, while I had my doubts, The piece as a whole is pretty impressive. The colors are multiple layers deep so it's really rich and variegated looking. Mara used up to 5 different treatments; stains, sealers, glazes, top coats.      Share...

Credenza with Composites

Here's a new project. This credenza, designed by Tony Kramer is to fit into a niche. This will be the first time I am using composition appliqués or "onlays" manufactured by Decorator's Supply (video here).  Cheesy? I don't know, this type of decoration has been going on for at least 100 years and longer if one considers the plaster medallions of Renaissance ceilings. These particular onlays are made...
