Painting a home in new colours can often result in updating the furniture too. Our client already owned this old chest of drawers and two modern bedside drawers. We used Mylands - Blackout, to coordinate the furniture with the colour scheme in his bedroom. Loving the dark contemporary paint colours from www.mylands.com
In the workshop
We are frequently asked to paint chest of drawers - draws often require carpentry work to enable them to open smoothly e.g. replacing draw guides.
Such a pleasure walking to work to paint a property at Vicars Close,
owned by the Cathedral - one of the oldest,
occupied Streets in Europe
Painting Georgian sash windows, a stunning view
- if you can see past the tourists!
Lots of painting required on this totally panelled room
Warning WET PAINT! Do not enter
You would be amazed how many tourists
drift in to get a sneaky look at the property
Using Distemper for breathable walls
These properties are larger than you think - The Georgians changed this property, one of twenty-seven, originally built in 1430 (there is an original preserved painting on the wall in one of the bedrooms)
No21 Painting & Decorating love restoration projects - this Rectory window with stained glass was in poor condition - our customer chose white paintwork in keeping with the rest of the house, and pale grey walls - Dulux Diamond Snowman
Luckily glass the panels were not broken however the wood was in poor condition from many years of neglect, mould and dirt, and in parts it required filling.
The etched glass was covered in a dirty haze, similar to a limescale - this was carefully scraped off (above - left side cleaned)
A new window sill was fitted and required many layers of paint
We finished the project inside - the outside needs a few more days of sunny weather before we can complete and hand over to the window cleaners.
