I still have a delay with one of my jobs. I was waiting for several months and I mean several, for the kitchen cabinets to be installed in this particular house so I could do the finish on the walls. The cabinets are finally in, but now the delay is the painter who needs to do some prep work and base painting before I can get in there. So… I’m waiting.
Recently I visited two new job sites and am currently working on the proposals for both. One is a residential makeover of a Family Room. The room is small by Family Room standards, but has some unique components to it. One being, a nice curved wall. There is also one wall that has three archways cut into it, from chair rail height up, that opens into a formal Living Room. The down side is that all walls have old paneling that is going to remain. The curved wall I can deal with because it is panels of wood, about 15" square, lined up to form diamonds on the diagonal. That will be the accent wall. More about this job later.
The second site I visited is a commercial site where I did some repair work, maybe 1 1/2-2 years ago. I have no idea who did the original finishes, but they do not seem to want whoever did those finishes to return. I find the management company easy and pleasant to work for, so I’m asking no questions. There is one, very large wall, in the lobby that has quite a bit of damage. The wall is done with multiple glazed finishes, in panels, very abstract. It’s a great design concept. Unfortunately, it appears that the prep work was just not done correctly and is causing the glazed layers to chip and peel. Some panels can be salvaged and just restored, but others will have to be completely redone.
Should this job materialize, I will post more photos and discuss what will be repaired vs. completely redone. I love this type of work, so I hope it’s a go.
