This was an extensive restoration project after a fire swept through a magnificent historic mansion. In addition, lead paint clean-up was a concern as well as preserving the integrity of the original craftsmanship.
All the wood work was hand brushed to look like the original finishes.
This restoration process required painting a gold bead detail on all the interior doors and windows to return it to the exquisite original finish .
This 12,000 square foot custom built home included custom lacquered trim finish and venetian plaster accents.
The painted woodwork was finished with 7 coats of white lacquer. The unique dark beams in the master suite were stained with a custom mix from Sherwin Williams.
The moulding on the central dome in the entry was custom glazed to bring out the detail. The dome itself is finished with venetian plaster.
