When we refinished Anna’s kitchen cabinets her boys were in middle school and high school. A few years later she asked us to refinish her worn hand rails. Her boys were older now. She pointed out the desk her boys used for their gaming computer. It had the kind of wear and tear boys often create on furniture.
Anna thought it might be good to wait until her boys were a little older before we refinished their desk.
This year her oldest son is in college and she called us to come and refinish the desk. We realized it will still get used as a desk so what we do has to be durable as well as gorgeous.
Brenda spends countless hours researching, studying and testing new refinishing products. She also networks with other finishing artists across the country. Two of these artists have developed products for cabinets that truly shine. Caromal Colours is a specialty paint line for furniture and cabinetry. Pure Earth Pigments is a mineral paint with properties similar to chalk paint.
We discovered a finish using these two products. We named this finish, “Patty’s Hutch.” (We’re more creative with paint than with names.)
Patty’s Hutch finish requires more steps and attention to detail than our average kitchen cabinet finish. And it’s a finish more suited to islands, vanities, desks or furniture than kitchen cabinets. In other words it will work well on accent pieces better than a whole kitchen.
We had a sample of Patty’s Hutch finish in our booth at the home show, and everyone who saw it loved it.
Of course we always make sure the style of whatever finish we put on your kitchen cabinets is going to compliment the decor in your kitchen or any other space we refinish for you. Making your home look good is what we do. And we will continue to stay on the cutting edge of new products and methods so you’ll have the best results possible.
