A remodel that includes distressing knotty alder wood cabinets and adding a prestain followed with a dark stain to go with the dark floors and finishing up with a satin finish.  The textured walls received a base coat followed with a rich glaze technique on walls and the main ceiling.
Mark Alexander was the General Contractor for this project and if you need his services you can contact me and we will hook you up.


Knotty Alder wood cabinets distressed with hammers and chisels to really age the wood followed with a dark stain and a satin finish. Knotty alder is a wood with different harnesses so to keep the look uniform we started with a pre-stain that seals off the soft spots to make the look overall more uniform.


Wood grain glaze applied over skip troweled texture to bring the texture alive.


The entry area was the tallest area in this house at around twenty feet so we approach tall areas with a double ladder to cover more area and to do the tallest areas first and work our way down the walls one section at a time.


Another nice shot of a finished area with the warming effect that it offers our client.


The bar area cabinets with the same technique as the kitchen cabinets and the master bathroom cabinets.

This area was made more difficult with the addition of the stone wall as we were staining.  All in a day's work and looking great anyway.


A shot from the bar area back towards the kitchen to show the scope of the areas that we were working on for this very nice homeowner located in Hackberry Creek.


Glazed walls and ceilings and a  special dark wood tone glaze on the distressed wooden mantle as well.  You can also see the dark floor stain that ties all of these colors together.


The finished glaze look on walls and ceilings.  A very nice warm up look to this clients new space that will be home in about another week or so.  The glaze used here is called Wood Grain Brown.


One of the hardest ceilings to finish out because it had no stops and starts so once you start one area you must keep going until the whole ceiling is complete.  We also pulled this technique without the help of air conditioning.  If you are looking to lose weight fast, this step will work for you.


Another job well done.  This will also show off the versatility of what David Simmons Designs is capable of doing for you as well.  Contact us today for your projects done well.
