PAINTING A DISTRESSED SHABBY GREIGE FINISH ON LORI'S JACK & JILL BATHROOM CABINETSLori remodeled her upstairs baths.
This one is a Jack and Jill bath. She got beautiful new flooring, granite and tile.
Then, she asked me to paint a special color finish that would tie in and bring all of the colors together.
It's hard to see her granite, but it's a creamy gray beigy color...greige? I thought that granite was so beautiful and loved the tile backsplash.
Those border tiles are the ones I posted earlier. Lori's second batch of border tiles came in with an unfinished edge and she asked me to paint the edges to match the first batch of tiles.
This is a link to that post:
I love the way they turned out. I was a bit anxious that when the tile guy was grouting, it might wipe off my new paint, but they turned out just fine...thank goodness!!
I love the dark border and that's why I painted that tiny trim on the raised panels of the cabinets to tie in with the darker border tiles.
This is a close-up of the cabinet finish that I painted.
Lori wanted a bit of distressing, so I lightly sanded the edges.
She loved the way it all turned out and I did, too.
Meet Panda Lu and Buffy.
They are sweet sisters. Buffy is 13 and Panda Lu is less than a year old.
She sure keeps Buffy in shape. They play and run together up the stairs/down the stairs, then they nap together.
Really, really sweet dogs.
This is the bathroom before I painted the cabinets. They were stained that orangey oak stain.
That is still a very nice finish, but lots of my clients are wanting to "update" their homes and ask me to paint over the older finishes.
Thank you for lettting me work for you again, Lori!!
