Alrighty, kids: Those cabinets y’all love? Daniel worked on the living room for those lucky folks as well. They’re the Brooklynites that want our man to “Danielfy” their place. Love it! (Oh, by the way, the cabinets are in the kitchen. More work/views from the kitchen coming soon!)
Disclaimer: I’m really pissed at Daniel. He didn’t take full before photos for this project; he’s already repainted the walls in the “before” photos below. I’m going to send him hate mail later from an anonymous account.
Anywho, let’s take a look at these semi-before photos, in which Daniel has already painted the walls different shades of grey:
A lovely place to start, yes, but wait til you see how it looks now!
If you’ve visited this blog before, perhaps you’ve caught onto some of Daniel’s design sensibility and advice: Start with a basic, neutral palette, then slowly add color. He’s, like, an artiste! A respectful one who uses VOC-free, water-based apoxy paint, because this client is preggers and apparently that VOC stuff is toxic. (Whoa, news flash, “normal” paint is toxic?*)
Naturally, next up, Daniel hit the floors:
Now let’s take a look at the final product:
And BAM! Christmas was last month. I wouldn’t know, because I’m Jewish, so I got socks and Lipton tea bags (true story– hi, mom!), but I hear it’s pretty festive. Apparently, these guys know how to do it up right. Maybe they’ll invite me (and Daniel?) next year.
Title moment: Where’s my stocking??
*Daniel says to always use environmentally-friendly paint. Aw. Look at him caring about fetuses and the planet.
