Black and White Interior Design Work

Had an opportunity to do a little interior work and provide input on a room redesign. The young lady had decided on a black and white theme with a black accent wall. Her mother wasn't positive but warmed up to the idea.

We started with yellow all over the place and quickly had the job underway.

The big decision was this wall with white doors, trim and wall. They thought maybe black doors would work.

We offered a suggestion to wait and see what the wall looked like once it was all white.

Here was the room just after painting...

and here with wall hangings up.

Our suggestion for the doors was to do the raised edges leaving the panel interior sections white. With the addition of a black framed mirror in between, it turned out great!

Window Repair and Painting Project in Hickory PA

Here we go again. Another swell project completed! This one was a real challenge.

We had a request to help repair and paint some windows on this picturesque home in Hickory PA. Little did we realize what we were in for on.

Here's what we found.

And it only got worst.

Best part, manufacturer wouldn't stand by their product and left the homeowner high and dry, or in this case, wet.

The job was to patch up the holes and paint. It was once said "The best laid plans of mice and men oft go astray" and that certainly was the case here.

The further we went the more rot and wet wood we found.

Cutting began in order to remove the rotten wood.

And even more!

So then it was time to cut some lumber to replace the missing pieces.

Very much like a large jigsaw puzzle.

Then the patching and filling took place.

Fun? Well at some point it was but I can't quite remember exactly which part.

Maybe it was the painting stage.

Yep, painting part was fun!

These are the same windows you saw above, all 26 of them.

Pretty distraction

OK, here's the window and another completed project from Hendersonworks.
