Please browse around and see what we've been up to, as we all tolerate these last (hopefully) few weeks of extreme cold here in Niagara are starting to think SPRING!
We've been networking and aligning with people in our industry and can now help with more than just painting kitchen
cabinetry, we can offer backsplashes for an
updated look along with changing out countertops
and we've found a great source for
AMISH BUILT KITCHEN ISLANDS! We also can
replace hardware and switch out hinges if so
desired, also new is soft close mechanisms for
doors and drawers, so no more slamming doors!
Still painting with our regular Benjamin Moore finishes we can now finish in lacquer which is just beautiful, very durable and also comes in all the colours of the rainbow and there's some looks for aging and creating the glazed distressed look.
We are also excited to be able to suggest
NEW doors for your kitchen if it makes
better sense to replace your cabinetry,
this is a good alternative to a complete
gut job and is less expensive then
renovating entirely and of course much
more environmentally friendly. The styles
of doors is endless, from very fancy to
just plain paneled doors we are sure to be able to help you find what you are looking for. These doors come in a laminated back and we can finish in lacquer or our regular alkyd paint.
Of course we still offer chalk paint finishes for that MODERN VINTAGE look that is so popular now. In fact, watch this space as we are working with a client and her designer Will Klassen of The Landing Co who is completely gutting a kitchen and creating an old world style kitchen from pieces she has collected over the years including old barn roofing boards for her flooring and thought- to-be Mexican teak doors with old iron strapping that were likely shutters on a cottage or cabin. It's so neat and it's a privilege to contribute to this client's creation. We are painting her lower cabinet doors using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint using crackle and distressed techniques (we've been working with The Painted Bench in Hamilton) to create an old worn look that will blend in with the rest of the kitchen. We'll post some pics.
We are still going strong painting furniture as this is where my real passions lie, we have been experimenting with different kinds of paints from General Finishes (milk paint line, the LAMP BLACK is a perfect flat black) and they have new metallic paints which I have yet to check out as we've been so busy but I can't wait to create something new with that.
Also Ms. Jane Wilson at A RAVEN'S NEST and I have been cooking up plans to offer painting cabinetry utilizing CeCe Caldwells palette which could be ultra fun and unique for sprucing up cottage kitchens for the folks who vacation along the shores of Lake Erie. If you are thinking about having a piece painted, have seen something on Pinterest or Houzz and wonder if we can recreate it, send us a picture, we love to inspire and be inspired!
