Custom work on the rise…..

Just wanted to post a couple of pictures from some custom jobs I have done….Sometimes I don’t always have that exact piece that a customer is looking for…but, they have a piece at home that they realize might just work if it was only re-beautified! So, they haul it over to The Old Cypress House and we discuss color options, distressing, and such….Then I have the customer that wants a “built in” painted. (custom built in entertainment units or kitchen cabinets, etc.) That’s when I pack up my supplies and head over to their home…Either way, it’s another service that The Old Cypress House offers…custom work!!


Below is Christi’s old kitchen table and chairs…she had the exact color in mind she wanted…we took a couple of annie sloan paints and mixed and mixed until we got it just right!






Below is Laci and Daniels brand new entertainment center that was built for their new custom home….it was unfinished, so we painted it black first, then used Annie Sloan pure white, distressed, and waxed it to a beautiful finish…











Below is Lois’s china cabinet….it’s a beautiful piece, but a little outdated….she picked her color and it turned out beautiful…Almost looks like a completely different piece of furniture than the one she brought in…









About The Old Cypress House

Mother-wife-friend-artist...I love to paint...I have always loved painting...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! Actually, I just like making stuff...DIY-that should be my initials! The Old Cypress House got started with a single plank of cypress wood given to me by my brother. I painted Tiger Eyes on it (LSU Tiger Eyes, to be exact...Geaux Tigers!). From that moment on, I couldn't do enough of them. I ventured into Fleur de Lis, Jazz guys...whatever anyone suggested. Then my husband helped tear down a cypress house that was built in 1889 and brought me home loads and loads of more wood, including the old cypress windows that were in the house...I could hardly contain my excitement! The possibilities are endless. This blog is going to showcase my work. It will mostly be on cypress...but, I'm sure I'll venture into other areas of art projects. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head. I hope you enjoy my work. If you see something you like or have an idea, please let me know...I'll be in my shop! "If you hear a voice inside of you say 'you cannot paint', by all means, paint...and that voice will be silenced" ~ Vincent Van Gogh View all posts by The Old Cypress House
