Tile work. Definitely do-able but takes some getting used to. I cut a cabinet in half for a client and then added new tile to the left of the counter top to make the transition as seamless as possible. I'll post a pick of the final finished product with his new wood block top. Looks great now and opened up this small kitchen a lot. Gw
House I painted in Eckington last year. Whew, this was a big project and required an insanely tall ladder. I really like the structure of the house with the castle turret, porch columns, weathered cedar shingles, and white trim shingles - very unique with a lot of character.

I painted this home in DC a few years back for a wonderful couple. The client selected the paint scheme and it turned out very well. Don't be afraid to use multiple complimentary colors on the exterior of a house. And notice how your eye is drawn to the strong rust orange color on the shutters and trim.
With any small room stripes add a touch of class and make the room feel more spacious. This interior studio office looks incredible after a drab beginning. I used the new "Frog Tape" to outline all the edges before painting. Don't use regular masking tape when attempting stripes. I've had lots of trouble with it before - paint leaking through the seams and it pulls paint off when removing. I recommend good blue painter's tape or the green Frog Tape. It's a little pricey but worth it.
