Recently, I had an opportunity to work with a family who wanted a truly unique kitchen for their vacation home. They told me that they wanted to work natural elements into the cabinetry, and really liked bold colors. Using 1″ diameter limbs from different tree species, I was able to create a custom crown around the entire kitchen – as you can see from the photos, the results were fantastic! All of the doors and cabinets were constructed out of bead board and finished with a rustic, distressed red stain. We even worked in a hand-painted mural and some stained glass with greens and earth tones to add to the character of this unique kitchen.
