Wood Furniture Refinishing.

Posted on: No Comments

When one of our clients approached us about refinishing some one of a kind outdoor furniture we jumped at the opportunity. This solid wood set had been brought from over seas some time ago so we had to make sure we took the time and care to ensure it would come out perfect.

 We had done lots of wood furniture refinishing in the past but nothing like this.  As we were unsure of the exact wood type we had to do some testing with different methods to make sure the all over refurbishment was exactly what our clients were looking for.

Once we got all of the heavy pieces to our shop we were able to jump in.  The project started with us cleaning and stripping the original coating that was on the wood.  There was some mold under the original clear coat so we had to strip it and clean the wood before we could begin recolouring the pieces.  This took some time as we didn’t want to damage any of the unique shape and lines in the wood.  Once all the prep was done we were able to start bringing this furniture back to life and ready for use.

After many hours spent in the shop the set is now complete and we have to say that the finished product is exactly what we had hoped.  The new darker stain and clear sealer have made the pieces look that much better.  You can now see the variations in the natural wood and the character of the pieces seem so much stronger.  In all we would say that this wood furniture refinishing project was a great success.

Professional Cabinetry Painting

Posted on: No Comments

Have you ever wanted to update your kitchen or bathroom but it wasn’t in the budget to replace all the cabinetry?

 
At Domain Decorating we can help you find a more cost effective way to update your space with our professional cabinetry painting services. Recently we refinished a kitchen and butler’s pantry in a client’s home. The finished product was great and the homeowner saved thousands by painting his cabinets instead of having them replaced.

 
Here are some photos of what the space looked like before our team arrived.

When our team arrived on site all of the hardware and doors were removed and taken to our shop. At our shop we prepped each panel removing the existing paint. When the doors were ready we sprayed them leaving them with a perfect custom finish in a colour selected by the homeowner.

 
On site our crew masked off the entire kitchen covering every surface that did not require any paint. We also set up an onsite spray booth to ensure paint did not travel to any other room or surface in the house.

 
Here is what the home looked like before we sprayed the existing cabinet boxes and island.

Finally we prepped and sprayed the onsite cabinetry. When everything had dried we removed all the masking and plastic and here is the finished product. There is no trace of our crew having ever been on site other than the beautifully updated cabinetry colours.

Adding Warmth With Wood.

Posted on: No Comments

Adding wood elements to your home is a great way to add warmth.  Solid wood accents can be added with mantels, railings, beams and even ceilings.  There are so many ways to bring the warmth of wood indoors into your home to create a beautiful and inviting space for your family.

Today we thought that we’d share some wood elements from homes that we’ve recently worked on.  These are some great examples of adding warmth with wood.

Homestar Designs

Here is a home we completed with Homestar Designs. You can see the beautifully stained wood mantel, beams and ceiling. This room is very warm and the presence of wood brings a classic elegance.

Gallery Homes

This is a kitchen in a home that we completed with Gallery Homes. You can see here that the beams are accented by using a different colour on the wood ceilings. As well, the windows are cased with stained wood versus painted mouldings. These wood accents add a country feel to a classic space.

Homestar Designs

Here is an open concept kitchen with a country feel. The simple white walls and cabinetry are beautifully complimented by the two different tones of wood on the ceilings and beams. This wood ceiling opens up the space more that a solid painted ceiling would. This home was completed by Homestar Designs.

Here you can see some wood brought into the space with the dark stained door and trim as well as the stairs and railings. This is another home we worked on with Homestar Designs.
