Yikes to WOW, Faux Finishing Adventures

Before: After:
Brett was asked to repaint a mantel in a historic Patterson Park row home. The fireplaces in this home are made of slate, and the others in the house were in their original state. For some reason someone decided to repaint this one, and did a very clumsy sponge painting finish. The finished project is painted to look like subtle grey black marble with the triangular shapes painted to match a cover that goes over the hearth.
If you would need any decorative painting in your own home in the future, please think of us and feel free to contact me.
