Galapagos Blue Kitchen


We are adding Galapgos Blue everywhere we can! It is our signature color that we invented and WON a contest in 2015 hosted by General Finishes! So when a client wants to use it in their home our heart skips a beat! It is amazing at what a can do!
But we did an entire kitchen in it and look how amazing it seriously looks!How cool, right?
A side by side can never be beat!
We are even painting OUR kitchen this color RIGHT NOW! The pic above are the lowers of our kitchen. I am dying for an entire reveal but check out the before!
Disaster zone right?
In yet a third kitchen, we did an island in galapagos blue! Can you tell 2016 will be bold?!
Such a big difference! Check out the before and after!
So how do we pull these amazing projects off?
We thoroughly prep the cabinets and frames. We repair and glue any and all joints that currently need it or will in the near future, we caulk anything that needs to be before we paint. Lastly, we repair any and all water damage so there are no surface cracks after the paint is applied. About 50% of cabinets have this and its usually just accepted but I have to take it up a notch, always!
Anyway!!! The most important part, the color! We entered into General FInishes contest last year with this color and WON! Lucky us! Its a mix of corinth blue, dark chocolate and sunglow yellow. But GF actually produces it for us now and we rebottle it in smaller quantities. The paint is self leveling, acrylic based, and self sealing. After painting, you can tell in a few of these kitchens we added a black or metallic glaze but totally not necessary. Then we sealed with a resin that is water resistant, uv protected and can withstand acid rain. Its Modern Masters Supreme Clear!
We have a video of the whole kitchen on our website! Just checkout the link below!
