Jill’s kitchen Make Over….Free Collage #3

Oct 16th, 2009
Here is #3 of the free consults we gave away .. Jill’s Kitchen.

Jill came to us with a $150 dollar budget. She was looking for a way to customise her kitchen cabinets and her banister while leaving the red color on the  walls. She also wanted some help with her windows and what to hang on them. When I first saw her pictures I instantly had 2 visions and decided to share both of them with her. So here is Jill’s Kitchen before…

and here is her banister..

 So the first option we gave her was to paint the cabinets creme with a glaze over the top (like the cabinets in the kitchen up-date post) We threw in some new hard ware, some curtains for the kitchen. The banister was to be painted like the cabinets with creme colored paint and a glaze over the top. We didn’t quite know how to Photo Shop all this in to her photo so she just got a collage with pictures… Sorry Jill! The finished result of vision # uno looks like this…
The next option was to apply just the glaze to her cabinets. Giving it a more custom look with out all the work of painting it. We once again added in new hardware and curtains for the kitchen. We then gave her 2 options for her banister.. the first using the glaze and applying it to the banister giving her the same look as the cabinets. The 2nd option that put her a little over her budget but totally changing the look was to replace her exsisting spindles with wrought iron spindles. We thought that with the black decorations she had it would tie in nicely with the black spindles…giving it a little something extra. So here is the collage for the last option…

We got an e-mail from Jill telling us that she chose to go with the last option and that she would send us pictures when the make- over was finished…We are holding you too that Jill!!
So just a quick question…Brooke and I have been talking about doing a post showing you all the different ways you could re-finish your cabinets…We would buy cabinet faces and show you the finished result along with how we did it… We would like to know if this is a post you all would be interested in.. it will be  alot of work!! So if lot’s of people like this idea for a post we will spend the time to make it happen..if not we won’t ;) So leave a comment if that is a post you would like to see in the near future…
