ABOUT THIS PROJECT

ASSESSMENT: Client was unhappy with current stain color of cabinets. She did a tremendous amount of online research looking for experienced painters who specialize in stain and saw Lime’s outstanding reviews. Lime met with client to determine the type of color she was looking for.  After asking questions, we found out that she really loved the stain colors on her fireplace mantle. We determined this would be need to be a unique custom mixed stain to achieve both the reddish and brown colors she was searching for. Lime took one of her cabinet doors to the shop and experimented and returned with some surprising results.  

ADVISE: After attempting multiple different stain color samples, our client had her heart set on the one that was an exact mix of Red and Brown. Ernesto put on his “Science Hat” and had developed a similar color match to the fireplace mantle. Our client was very well pleased as this was the key reason she chose Lime for the entire project. Next we masked the room and removed all of the cabinet doors and set up a professional spray station in the clients sun room. Every cabinet and door was deep sanded as we removed all the old finish and lacquer. After a thorough clean up of dust we proceeded to evenly stain the wood cabinetry. While this was happening, Victor was hand glazing all of faces of the cabinet doors. Once complete, the crew sprayed on a crisp beautiful satin clear coat and the owner could not be happier and committed to writing a positive BBB review. The crew came back a few days later to put the icing on the cake as the new hardware arrival was delayed and the job was  complete!
