Another kitchen to get a facelift with some new cabinets, countertops, appliances and a backsplash. The client cannot wait to be rid of the awful granite tiles that barely have grout left between them. Yuck!

Things are really starting to take shape and the finishing touches are being added.

The soffit in the kitchen gets a rich coat of chocolate brown to tie in the new cabinet color. The… Continue reading Day 13-15
In between designing kitchens and bathrooms and managing several projects, it’s nice to take a break to do something fun and sparkly.
