Kitchen traditional-kitchen


This kitchen was designed as an addition to a 1929 Tudor Revival home in Mountain Brook, Alabama. Antique oak beams and a pecky cypress island topped with a single massive slab of Venetino marble match the level of fine detail found elsewhere in the home.

Yeah I have had that result with fabrics too. I think the key here is getting everything wet and then thoroughly rinsing afterwards. good luck!
