These doors started out as just plain painted wooden doors to the owners’ future media room. The client was looking for something a little more fitting for the space. We incorporated our fabulous burled wood technique to take these doors to the next level and then added beautiful antique hardware!
It is very easy to take almost any surface and transform it into something else. That is the basic premise of a “faux” finish. With materials like paint or plaster, or other materials, one can literally change an ordinary surface into a completely different element. Just envision a plain white, laminate cabinet and with an application of various paint techniques, it can be changed to look like an old, barnwood piece or limestone. There are also paints and different chemicals that can create patina finishes like rust copper or bronze. There are also products that can create different types of crackled finishes. Anything is possible!
We have classes that can teach you how to alter your cabinets, walls, furniture or any other architectural surface and make it look like something else. We offer group classes or individual one on one training tailored to your specific needs or goals.
