My Milton House clients also own a beautiful, huge house on the Cape (Cape Cod, Massachusetts for any of you not familiar with this area). I had the pleasure to work in this house a few days last week, doing the same repair work to the kitchen cabinets that I did in their Milton house. Here you see the work in progress. There were 60 panels that had been previously silver leafed and glazed by someone who has since moved out of the area. The leaf was worn away on many of the doors, so I painted over them with Dutch Metal Silver, glazed and sealed. Not the most exciting work, but it was a very relaxing three days, and nice to get away. A huge thanks to my friend Marianne for letting me stay at her house on the Cape, which made for a quick 10 minute commute!
Now I am back at their Milton House working on the Master Bedroom. Before I get into that project, I thought I would post a few new pictures I was able to take of some of the more recent work I’ve done there. It’s always nice to return and be able to take pictures after the artwork, window treatments and furniture are back in place!
I love this print on the walls in this back hall. The stencil is from Cutting Edge Stencils.
Here’s the diamond wall in the foyer, with the back hall in background…
…and a close up of the wall, showing the gems. This is the wall where I had to apply five layers of Metallic Gold StucoLux because it was soooo thin. I ended up glazing over it in the end because it just was not looking very good. I’d never use it again, although I do have a lot of it left, so maybe I’ll just use it as a glaze. It certainly does not function like a plaster.
I took a photo of the stripes Chris Smith and I did in the foyer, from floor level, so you could see these beautiful glass tiles. The stencil isfrom Royal Designs Studios.
This celedon green foil finish in the Master Bath is just too difficult to photograph well.
I was able to get a fairly good shot of the vanity though to show you how cool the sink looks when the light underneath it is on. The door panels are also foiled and have the same stencils as the walls, with gems… of course! I’m blanking now what stencil set this is, but it is from Royal Designs.
