Just landed a wonderful project I am so excited about.  I will keep up up-dated on the progress.  I start Monday!

Here are the samples of the finishes.

This is for the Powder Room.  An aged watermelon tissue.  The vanity, which I don’t have a picture yet is a beautiful corner cabinet and I will be doing a monogram design on the cabinet door.

I didn’t take a great picture of this, bad me, but it’s watermelon venetian highly polished for the Formal Dining Room.

Then this is a three toned venetian, with other secret ingredients, for two large columns entering the Great Room.  It will frame the area magnificently.  The top cap and base cap will be a high gloss black.

 

I am working with Modello Designs in altering one of their patterns to fit this step which goes into a step down Great Room.  This is so much fun putting this together and the people at Modello Designs are awesome to work with.  I have a habit of altering designs or creating my own to fit an area. They always do a fantastic job.  Here is the pattern and a sneak peek of part of the step.  This will be a challenge to photograph as the step surrounds almost the entire room.  It will be done in a slightly distressed black.

And I am restoring this piece to its original glory.  It will be altered a bit as we don’t have pictures of the top before it was cut.  It was the vanity in the Powder Room.  It is a challenge that I am enjoying working on!

 

 

I have also created two other finishes for another upcoming job.  It is so much fun being in the studio and creating again!  As many of you know I have had a very tough year.  Not just economically, but medical issues in my family and tragedy.  I thank our Awesome Lord for giving me wonderful work to help me get back in the game!

Here I am working on those two new finishes and the end product.

Lastly, I finished a project last month which I finished a kitchen island and another awesome cabinet that I got to be creative on.  I was directed by the designer in the look he was after and if I do say so myself, they came out great!  The home is not complete but I will have better photographs when everything is in place!

So yes, I have been trying to stay busy through all the muck.  I appreaciate all the thoughts and prayers sent my family’s way.  My sweet man is having his 4th surgery the first week of November, so please continue to keep us in your prayers.

Prayer works, I am living proof of that!  And I’ll leave you for now with this:

Lord, may I marvel in my creativity the way that You do.

“Most of all, He is the creator.  He created the universe and those who inhabit it; and in creating us, He made us in His own image, so that His personality and capacities are reflected in our minds, bodies and immortal spirits.  So we are, by nature, creators as well.”  Paul M. Johnson

 

May God Bless and Keep You!

Well, I got home and there seems to be way more stuff to do than when I left.  I thought I left everything quite tidy, but not so.  That’s another post.

The  great news is that the Sumter Project is almost finished!

Terri is working on the first coat in the Living Room…..

and working around the room…..

Meanwhile, I discover that there is a chip in our Foyer finish!  The light fixture is up, soooooo, I also found the culprit!

This is our beloved Dennis, the electrian…….

                                                                                                                      He looks guilty, doesn’t he!

And here comes Carla, master fix-it-upper.

What is that?  A closet rod, a paint brush taped to the end?

Ready, set, TOUCH-UP…….

And here it sits until the stone surround is installed.  I know I have teased you a good bit about this finish.  I will give you a hint of what is to come.  Trompe L’oeil stonework, and a custom  Trompe L’oeil tapestry designed in collaboration with designer John Marshall Williams.

That’s it!  That’s all you are going to get for now.  You will have to check back!  I hope you will!

Here Terri completed a air return cover to match the beautiful wood grain of the cabinetry.
