Home & Garage Door Make Over

I am so pleased with how this home turned out - and more importantly... so is my client!
Can you believe that THIS:
Started out looking like this?

I started with the metal garage doors.  We stained them to look like wood.  I love the "Tommy Bahama" look!
Here's an up close of the doors:
Garage Door and faux brick work complete on the front of the house.  My client is going to paint the wood trim a darker color to complement to faux wood garage door.
I painted this faux brick work on the front interior courtyard walls. 
I'm super pleased with the results!  My client is too. 
Now, on to the cement sidewalks.  We're going to make them look like slate!

Cabinet Transformation - Maple to Oak

This was a different transformation.  In past jobs the clients have wanted to take light oak cabinets and make them dark.  But these wonderful clients wanted to lighten and brighten their kitchen by updating their maple cabinets into a medium oak color.  And, they wanted the wallpaper removed and replaced with mural work.
~Before ~
notice the wallpaper - and the older cabinet hardware

the lower cabinets
~ After ~ 
I did faux graining on these to make them look authentic.  New hardware was also added to update the look.
 ~ After ~
the lower cabinets
~ No more wallpaper ~
I painted the fruit mural and leaves to match my clients plates
~ A closer look at the fruit mural ~ 
 ~ The client is thrilled, and I'm really happy too.  I wasn't sure how this was going to turn out and I'm really pleased with the results. ~

Patio Wall Transformation

Last year I created a patio space for my lovely clients.  Click HERE to view that transformation.  This year they asked that their patio wall be transformed to match the patio - complete with faux painted Mexican Tiles.
~ Here is the "before" of the wall ~

~ First step - I painted the wall yellow and the drainage pipe bronze, with some "aging" added ~

~ The wall has been faux painted ~

~ The trim has been painted orange and we've added the turquoise blue shutters that have been "aged" with bronze paint.  Also, the new "inlaid" Mexican Tiles have been added - which match those on their patio floor. ~

~ Ta Dah!  The finished product!  What a transformation! ~

Hand Painted Mailbox

How CUTE would this be? 
A perfectly designed personalized mail box! 

This home owner loved the Redlands smudge pots and wanted to their mailbox to reflect the native landscape of orange groves! 
I love how it turned out - and so did the homeowners!
