Do you have a lot of interior painting and wallpaper or carpentry work that you need done around your home? If so, take a look at this big interior painting project we recently completed in Wynnewood, PA. This was a fun project for us, as we were able to utilize many of our skills.
In the master bedroom, we began by removing chair rail from the walls and patching holes and old caulk and paint lines. We then installed floor to ceiling shadow box squares on the main wall and painted the entire wall with the same color and sheen as the trim to create a beautiful accent wall.
The master bathroom received a fresh look when we painted the bathroom cabinets. First, we removed the hardware, then we cleaned, sanded, and sprayed the cabinets with a bonding primer. Next, we sprayed the cabinets with 2 coats of Urethane Modified Acrylic Cabinet Paint. This is a more economical way to refresh your bathroom than tearing out and replacing the cabinets.
In the guest bedroom, the walls were painted two-tone with a dark blue color going ¾ of the way up the walls for a unique look. This was a different technique for us, and we think it turned out nice!
The 2nd floor hallway required the stripping of wallpaper from 2 accent walls, and then we re-papered those 2 accent walls. We also hanged wallpaper in the lower-level laundry room as well as the first-floor hallway.
In the formal living room, the client chose a color in the taupe or “greige” family, to replace the deep navy blue previously on the walls. This completely changed the essence of the room, which now feels larger and brighter.
The family room previously had antique white walls with a darker, dusty teal shade on all the cabinetry and trim work. The client again chose the taupe tone for the walls, the warm neutral making the room feel brighter and larger, yet still cozy. We then put 3 coats of crisp white on the trim and cabinetry, which reflects the light beautifully and offsets the taupe really well.
Perhaps the biggest challenge and surprise of this project was in the dining room. We removed the old crown molding, stripped the wallpaper, installed new crown molding, and painted the walls a rich, sharp black. Most people are still a little fearful of using this color on interior walls, but the dining room was a perfect choice in this case. The client’s room décor set everything off stunningly, and painting the ceiling and trim a bright white kept it from feeling small. We even sprayed the cabinets the same color as the walls and they blend in great, which was the client’s wish.
This was a great project with an awesome new customer who relocated from California. She was thrilled with the results and has been added to our list of “Customers for Life”!
