Charlotte Cabinet Painter the Right Choice for Choosy Customer

Charlotte Cabinet Painter the Right Choice for Choosy Customer

Tara Della Vecchia knows this about herself: She can be difficult to please.

When she moved into her 1970s Charlotte home three years ago, she knew the kitchen needed some work. After upgrading the countertops with granite, her smallish kitchen still seemed very dark.

“We wanted to open up the space, but not invest in a gutted renovation solution,” she remembers.

That meant repainting the dark wood cabinets instead of replacing them. After consulting Angie’s List, she found Jeff Adams of highly rated Wood Artistry and Restoration in Fort Mill, South Carolina. Adams proposed applying a glaze finish to her cabinets, which would add depth and space to the feel of the kitchen.

Adams’ estimate came in a little higher than Della Vecchia had budgeted for, but when Adams walked her through the complicated job, one thing became clear. The painter was as passionate as she was picky.

“It was a no-brainer,” Della Vecchia wrote in her review.

The job took about three weeks, with a worker who was friendly, flexible with her schedule and tidy when he left. The best part of all – a finished product that was just what Adams had said it would be, without the expense and hassle of replacing her cabinets.

“The glaze added the depth we wanted,” Della Vecchia says. “The final product completely brightened our kitchen.”

Her husband was thrilled, she says, and so was she. And that, she knows, means something.

“I’m not,” she says, “an easy person to please.”
