Kitchen with a difference.
You can change your kitchen with a wave of a magic brush. Of course in this case the magic does not come in a split second but it is in the desire of the owner for painted cabinet doors and the passion of the artist [in this case, yours truly] to design and paint them. So voila! From modern designed black doors, its now cream, antiqued and 'trompe l'oeil' (a french term meaning 'trick of the eye') to look like a cabinet within a cabinet.
The doors under the sink are original louvers. The third door was actually plain but I painted it to look like lattice to complement the other 2 doors. On the long doors, Yatie wanted a topiary design and since she loves roses, we decided on a rose topiary in an urn to coordinate with the rose borders on some doors.
I am Zaitun Ramli, born and bred in Muar, Johore.Also brought up in Alor Star, Kedah in the early years of my life. I am a Decorative Artist, Teacher and Author. Been involved in decorative painting since 2001 and has never looked back.Decided that this is my career after doing various jobs before. Being a mother of 5, managing them, like other mums, you can also say that I am a Home Entertainer.
Recently on 19th August 2011, I became a grandma to a beautiful bouncing baby girl.
