Island Kitchen Cabinets

I finished today on the project I have working on for the past week.  I darkened the cabinets in the dining room and the island in the kitchen.  Then I matched four large corbels that were added onto the kitchen island.  I also matched two large corbels and two small ones to the wall side cabinets in the kitchen.

In this first photo you can see several aspects of this job.  The island corbels have been primed but in the background you can see the wall side corbels are still the raw wood.  There are two on the wall side and they are actually attached to a pull out shelving system for the range.  The range sets between them and when you pull out there is shelving for all the spices and such.  Notice the color of the island cabinets, they will get a lot darker.

 
Here is a photo showing the island corbels with the base coat on them.  In the background you can see both the wall side corbels which at this point they have been primed.


In the photo below it shows the island cabinetry and the corbels completed.  Looking at the photo above you can see how much darker I made cabinetry.

 
In this next photo it's actually a pretty good representation of the actual color.  The corbels ended up matching perfectly.

 
The next photo shows the first wall side corbel completed and the one behind it not done.  After I matched the color of the corbel to the cabinets I added the pin striping with the same color as the pin striping as in the cabinets.  You can see here what I was mentioning earlier about the shelving system.  The two smaller corbels are attached on the upper cabinets above the lower ones.
