Painting Projects for the Home

I’ve been a little slack on my blog posts. Not for lack of things to share, but mostly because I find it difficult to tackle the design and painting projects, take pictures of the process, and then organize them in a way to share them. I promise I’ll get better at it though because I really hope to share our projects to inspire you. So, with that said, I have been busy with furniture finishes, wall finishes, and design projects over the last few months and have a few pics to share with you.

The side tables are for a client fro whom we did some design work and the nightstands are the finishing touch. The sea grass door panel just adds the perfect coastal touch. The walls project was great to be involved in. The homeowner had added the bamboo trim to her walls to create panels. I made a sample of the finish to match the color running through the bamboo and the space outside the panels has a custom mixed color to tie it all together. The floors above are part of a whole home design project that I hope to share with you soon. The furnishings are just arriving and window treatments are not far behind.

Let me know what you think of some of these projects. Do you feel like tackling a painted floor? Have a piece of furniture you would like to update?

I hope these projects gave you a few ideas. There’s no limit to what you can do.

Be inspired,
