Before and after stripping of polyurethane and cherry stain.

Maple cabinets by Hartwood Custom Cabinets in Monticello, GA. Benny Hart, owner of Hartwood Cabinets, took off with a few hundred dollars of my money. I was foolish enough to pay in full after he promised to come back and finish the job. I tried calling him for weeks. Finally I tried from a different phone; he was very surprised it was me. He told me BS about going bankrupt and that he would come by on that Monday to finish up. Never heard from him again.

Paint color and lighting

Two pictures taken at the same time that show how lighting changes paint color. The first is without flash, the second with flash.

This color was changing to pea green at night, it took me days to realize it was because of the energy efficient compact flourescent bulbs which give off a blue-green hue. With halgoen or incandescent,where the hue is warmer, the color is totally different--a color true to the acutal color.
