The designer on this job found this gorgeous burled wood fireplace. Once it was installed, she decided it needed more height. She had a contractor build the crown out of particleboard and installed the resin cast columns. Then I painted the crown to match the fireplace and the columns to match the travertine tiles on the surround.
This is a fireplace that the builder put in his spec home. The new homeowners liked the structure of this one but not the finish.
After a thorough prepping, I added a faux stone texture and sanded it so that it feels nice. Then, I embedded silver into the grooves.
To update these cabinets, I added the molding with the squares and the beadboard, then, I finished them with a fade which gives the cabinets a subtle glow in the center.
The client for this job was so much fun. She wanted a funky space baby nursery. This is what she and I came up with. This has to be my favorite little person room I have painted yet!
This job really turned David’s room into a playful place for a little boy.
This dome added a bit of glitz to the room after I added old fashioned gold leaf.

If we selected the most intelligent, the most creative and the most compassionate of humankind all races would be present. If the culture nurtures these qualities they can blossom into a luxurious peaceful society. If the opposite selection were made of humankind, those with the herd mentality, the most destructive, the most blood thirsty again all races would be present.
As an American woman, I understand that without the freedom granted me, I would have a very different life. I am tremendously grateful to be allowed to live a life as a participant in the world as opposed to most of the women throughout human existence who lived a life of servitude and bondage.
