Latest Job - bathroom repaint and remural...
« on: June 14, 2009, 11:50:18 AM »
Well I have spent the last two weeks on this house and I just finished yesterday. Thought I'd share some "before and afters", this is the same client that hired me to do that tuscan plaster finish. I also repainted his laundry room and his office, so I have been a busy girl! Enjoy and please feel free to comment if you so desire.

Here's the Bathroom before, these colors should be illegal! ;D


And here's the repaint, SW Duration interior satin and ProClassic SG Trim:

Here's the sink area before:


And after with the addition of the new mural and a couple of new pieces of art:


Here's a closer view of the mural, it's the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse which is in my home town area:

This was over the tub, someone was trying to be creative but just didn't quite make it:


This is what I replaced it with:

Yep, I did the murals, it was a lot of fun! I enjoy jobs like this where the client tells me to pick the colors and designs, of course there were sketches etc. that were shown and approved but for the most part it was open. Thanks very much for responding, I am really proud of this job and wanted to share it.

Nice Jan- had you done the previous work as well?

Best I can do is smeer pigment around!

Jan great work. I bet you stay busy with this type of work. The before pics were awful. You pulled the colors together great.  :)

Thanks very much, I have had a great feedback and many people are interested in this type of work and I hope it will generate a extra paycheck eventually. It's a life/personal goal type of thing. However, it is a challenge to find someone to pay for this level of detail, this was a special situation. And that horrid color HAD to go LOL!!!!

I hope I can continue to do all of the prep and painting for a while, I really, really DO enjoy being a painter and I think it is a wonderful complement to the artist side of me. Plus, I am VERY particular about how my surfaces are prepared, I know maybe one day I'll have to relenquish that to someone else.

Its all on how you market yourself. I do a lot of decorative work AND general painting, including prep for other decorative painters. There is a whole bunch of "faux" (I hate that word) that know nothing about straight painting, never mind prep. I sub out and stay busy. This also allows me less time spent on marketing as once I got a handful of these companies, they get the jobs for me. And I bill out the same as if I were bidding so all is good. Plus more times than not, i'm used in the decorative work too. The down side is I work from Maine to DC so I travel a lot but sometimes its all good. Just got back from Cape Cod (straight painting) and Sat. head for Hershey PA. (hanging a mural in the Hershey museum)......Who dosnt like Chocolate?!!!

   Heres where I was in April.  http://www.decoartisans.com/Recent%20travels.htm

   Oh, and good work! just keep networking and it will fall into place.

Thanks Roadog... that window with the stars over it is stunning. I am doing a residence right now that I think will benefit from a small amount of metallic/foil accents, more on the bronze side rather than gold.

I'm glad someone else hates the "F" word  ;D as much as I do. It's tough to describe your work to people without using it though. I am really just beginning my career in this area even though I have worked as a graphic artist for thirty years and have been painting since I was a teen.

I don't mind some travel so I am reaching out to market myself in other areas; I'm getting ready to buy a new (well new to me) van that is roadworthy so that will help a lot.

Thanks very much for the comments and for sharing that link.

Where do you live??? what state. I know a lot of people and we occasionally have large jobs that need people. We would always bring on painters for decorative stuff that know how to prep and paint (straight) before the person who took a week faux class and thinks they are a painter.
