Custom Wood Doors

This customer wanted to utilize the storage space under his stairs.

We custom made wood doors to close in the space.

For an added touch we white washed the doors with the color of the surrounding wall leaving the wood grain showing. Adding white to the molding around the doors helped make the doors stand out and look more decorative.

Appliance refinishing

There are times you can't get an appliance to fit a space or a new appliance can just be very costly.

For this customer we refinished this counter top stove for less than the cost of replacing it.

Here are the before and after pictures.

Cabinet Painting

When wood cabinets are starting to look rundown and your looking for a new look, Painting is a very cost efficient option and with the color choices being endless, you can give your kitchen almost any look you desire.

All though there is an art to doing it right so that it last, as you see the final product is well worth the expense.

Wood Accent Wall

I've written articles on accent walls being done with different color paint as well as wood.

For this customer, we went with the rustic wood look.
As you can see, the final look would go great with a rustic look or a beach theme and leaves you plenty of options for the rest of the rooms decor.
