WRITE ON YOUR WALLS WITH CHALKBOARD PAINT
Normally, we wouldn't recommend writing on your walls, but chalkboard paint invites you to do just that. Any wall or cabinet in your home can be transformed with it to make your vertical space so much more useful.
Maybe you have a budding artist that likes to doodle on the walls. Or you want to stay organized with a daily wall calendar without putting holes in the wall.
Chalkboard paint gives you surface-ready spaces where you can jot down your shopping list or notes to family members, as well as a place to express your artistic urges whenever the mood strikes.
REFRESHING AN OLDER HOME IN BRYN MAWR, PA
Like with everything else, paint colors and trends come and go. In homes along the Main Line and in Delaware County prospective home buyers may get hit with a blast from the past. This was the case for our latest clients and their new home.
We completed a total interior "facelift" on our client's 1950s Bryn Mawr home. The ceilings, trim, crown molding and walls were all refreshed with two coats of paint in colors suited to newer trends and the new owners' tastes.
As we do for every job, we began by taking extra measures to protect any area that wasn't going to be painted and prepare the walls to ensure a smooth application of the new paint.
After meeting with our color consultant, Linda, they selected warm, earth tone colors, like Sherwin William's Nuance and Respose Gray, to give the home a warm and calming feeling.
Older homes tend to have lots of imperfections from wear and tear over time, but it's nothing we can't handle. With a little effort we were able to restore this house back to its former glory.
After a top to bottom refresh, our clients were thrilled with the transformation and couldn't wait to start moving in.
"Mike and his crew recently painted the entire interior of my house before we moved in. Mike is incredibly responsive, thorough, and a perfectionist. He was always available to answer my many questions throughout the entire process. Our house was built in the 1950s–the baseboards, trim, crown molding, walls and ceiling all needed a fresh coat of paint and some attention. Mike and his crew meticulously filled holes, sanded uneven spots, and sprayed the ceilings/molding. He really gave our older house the facelift that it needed! We couldn't be happier with the quality of his work and with working with Mike, and wouldn't think twice about hiring him again. We're already looking into booking him to power wash our house in the Spring!"
