Custom Painting with a Vibrant Swirl

From drab to fab this place really changed!! We were able to transform this space with vibrant colors and sparkling accents!! The process was time consuming but the result was pretty grand.

Here's was our starting point.

Working with Eccentricity Design, a local interior designer,  we started out by getting the walls covered with the vibrant colors she selected

We used Sherwin Williams Emerald for this job and choosing the right walls also made for some dynamic features.

A pretty nice feast for the eyes.

After some test patterns done on sample boards the owner chose this phenomenal swirl design.

Using a metallic "Tequila Gold" the base pattern was painted free hand onto the wall with the pattern wrapping around the corners.

Once the main swirls were added to the wall using 4, 3 and 2 inch brushes...

the secondary and tertiary swirls were added using 1 inch and smaller brushes

Subtle accents were added to the secondary and tertiary swirls with a Bronze glaze mixture.
And the swirls kept rolling.

Most of the details were placed on the upper half of the wall so the furniture would not block the finer details.

Corner wrap!!

 And tons of fun
 The pictures don't do justice to the beauty of the metallic gold and bronze glazing. I wish you could all see it in person.
Field trip anyone??

Interior Painting in South Park

We once again had the opportunity to do some interior painting, this time in the South Park area. There was plenty of new trim and lots of unwanted wallpaper! This what it looked like finishing up.

Here's where we started...

with many angles...

and all the windows had new trim to be primed and painted.

We began with a quality primer from Sherwin Williams,

and 2 steamers on the wallpaper! After the paper was removed we skim coated the walls to remove any defects, patched holes, caulked any gaps and then primed the entire kitchen.

Next came a bright white for the ceilings.

and the walls were rolled with Sherwin Williams Emerald paint in "Natural Linen"

Here's a finished window and wall.

Finished trim and doors here too!

Every job has it's own unique challenges and this one was no exception. It's the process of adapting and overcoming all the challenges we encounter that makes the job rewarding!

Sewickley Exterior Painting

This was a fantastic exterior painting project that really had us on our game!

When we first looked at the house, Meli Plastering was renovating the stucco, some foundation work and associated trim.

Our job was to paint everything that wasn't stucco!

We started in earnest on one of the higher points.

This new breezeway porch roof would need primed and double coated with Sherwin Williams Emerald line.

Around back is a superb second floor porch....

and many unique architectural accents.

Our crew was hard at work with ladders and....

scaffolding everywhere.

We eventually worked our way back to the front of the house

and to this amazing front porch.

Not to slight the side porch.

And the rear of the house leading to it.

We can't say enough about this excellent dwelling!
