We’re working for a long-time client, refinishing her kitchen cabinets, fireplace mantle and entertainment center. The picture above is of the powder room we did 8 years ago. It still looks good and still fits the style of the house. As I looked closer at the finish I realized we did it using a sponge.
Now, we began our business back in the days when sponge painting was all the rage. And lots of DIY types were slapping paint on the wall with a sea sponge. Some of them even started small businesses doing sponge painting and “rag-rolling”. But it only took a few years for sponge painting and rag rolling to become “not cool”. If everyone had it and everyone was doing it then it wasn’t “special” any more. And part of the reason sponge painting fell from popularity so quickly is that there were a lot of amateurs doing it and getting amateur-looking results.
The reason I mention this brief history of sponge painting is to point out that we used a sponge on these walls 5 years or so after sponge painting was passe’. You see, we didn’t settle for being amateur DIY types who decided to start a business. We made it a point to find the best faux finishing schools in the nation and attend classes. And we learned the latest styles and techniques, but we didn’t just give our clients the new “hot” look. We took time to make sure that any faux finish we we did would fit the style of the house and would give a look that would stand the test of time. And we had the training to use a sea sponge to create a look that didn’t look like sponge painting.
And now our business is focused almost entirely on refinishing kitchen cabinets. But we still use the same care give our clients a look that’s going to stand the test of time. We’ve been doing faux finishes and refinishing kitchen cabinets for a long time. And we have a portfolio of some really creative and cool finishes we can do on kitchen cabinets. But our focus is on making your house look good, not to show how creative we are. We will always work hard to make your home look amazing with a style that will look good years from now.
