A new master bed/bathroom addition in a 6 million dollar house in Dallas!  What? They asked me to come help? 

The contractor found me via my Instagram account and gave me a piece of tile trim the designer and homeowner liked and wanted me to make a sample board that looked like it.  That was my test!   

When we met again, not only did I make a sample board look beautiful, but I made it an exact match in the colors of the piece of tile and got the job! Whoop!   I mean in a 6 million dollar house this outta be good right?

Well, the 2300 sq. foot bed/bath edition had the most beautiful new cabinetry and I went to work! 

First I applied Sherwin Williams bonding primer which I had tinted in the closest color to GF driftwood that I could find, next was one coat of Driftwood Milk Paint, followed by 2 coats of Modern Masters Gold, 2 coats of HPTC satin and toned down by GF pitch black glaze effects; finally 2 more coats of HTPC and voila.... Goldgeous they are!

Customer was so happy, I also painted the 18 ft. fireplace to match, and ended up painting all the cabinetry in the 600 sq. ft. closet; then moved on to glaze pretty much the entire house and painted cabinetry in 6 of the additional 8 bathrooms, because yes, there are a total of now 9 with the new master addition.

Oh, and I am working on furniture for them now and they also have recommended me to new clients!  -- 

Goldgeous paid off and looks amazing, I hope you agree with me.
