Another set of cabinets transformed. Disassembled, primed, painted, reassembled.
A few of the corner doors appear slightly off. They were left a bit loose on the hinges as they will be removed again shortly for new counters and backspash. This way they will be easily removable without damaging the fresh paint as it does take this product up to 30 days to ‘fully cure’ and harden. Knobs were also left off for a few more days while drying happens however we did put the new felts on the backs of the doors.
Remember even though white seems to be the most popular color you can choose almost any color in the spectrum much like modern wall paints so the sky is the limit and occasionally customers request a tuxedo design which is a different color on the tops and bottoms.
Paint: Sherwin, SuperPaint, Flat
Interior painting project completed in Columbia, Illinois. This project involved repainting the ceilings and walls of the entry, basement stairs, living room and kitchen areas. Both the walls and ceilings of the area have a heavy texture added at some time by the previous owner. The new owners were happy with the white color but not the texture.
By repainting the entire area the texture was much more subdued and blended in and added just a touch of color to the whole area. Since the color was so light and conscious that the edges would be difficult to get a clean edge with the texture everywhere the owner opted to do the same color on both the ceilings and walls.
One expected thing was a higher than normal amount of paint usage. The entire job ran about three gallons over the average amount that we normally see.
Trip #2 for this Ladue homeowner. On this trip we painted three bedrooms and an exercise room. No ceilings, only window edge trim, sill, doors, doorframes and the baseboards along with the walls. Customer supplied the paint (Farrow & Ball a paint from England).
This Chesterfield homeowner contacted us for painting of their home interior. First part of the project (returning in November for the other half): Two bathrooms, two walk in closets, two bedrooms, large basement room, entry, halls, living room and atrium. One bedroom had a 41′ vault, one closet a 12′ vault, one bathroom a 14′ vault, the entry a 14′ vault, the entry a 16′ vault and the atrium a 25′ vault. For this part ceilings and walls were painted then at the end some of the door frames. Baseboards were not painted, all the doors are going to be replaced and some of the other woodwork will be changed out . The customer chose to use Behr paint on the lower dark grey room and the bedrooms. For the main area and atrium we switched to Sherwin’s Emerald. On a return trip some other areas around the atrium will be painted, the new doors which will be cut and hung by then and two areas that require a lift that won’t be available until a later date.
The Ladue homeowner chose to use a customer supplied paint and two different paints were used between the rooms we painted. This project consisted of two bedrooms, a master bedroom and a master bath (not pictured). The baseboards, crown, doors and frames were all painted. One bedroom had a single layer crown, one had none and the master in a two layer tray pattern. Ceilings were also painted.
On this project the customer in Crestwood wanted a few things done to prep for the sale of the property so the working parts here were:
There was a large opening between the two bathrooms that was being refilled by the client
We used UltraSpec 500 for the walls, Roman RX for the wallpaper prime and our usual cabinet products on the wood.
For this project the homeowner had a living room/kitchen shotgun combo with a back hallway to have painted. This involved the baseboards, door frames and doors, ceiling and walls.
While the color change was not that drastic there were three areas in this small area that gave an issue and can serve as a great example of what looks like it might be a problem sometimes is not.. and sometimes what you least expect would be a problem becomes one.
In this situation we had a red wall that would no longer be an accent and instead return to the main wall color. Reds can always be problematic but in this case two coats of wall paint covered it no problem. The yellow wall was repainted yellow. Sounds simple right? This along with the back hallway that was green would be changed to yellow. Both walls required three coats of paint to properly fill in which taking the green to a solid and vibrant yellow was expected to give some issue.. generally yellow over yellow does not but the old color being more of a goldish yellow and the new one being a true bright yellow in order to get the full color effect a third coat was needed to fully block out the gold. Simple solution of course but the kind of things we warn about that can happen with certain colors clashing with others.
