Painting Large Built-in Living Room Cabinets

Rather than remove this built in shelving unit, the new homeowner opted to fix the holes and repaint the whole thing in colors that fit them. They chose a vibrant color that makes the cabinets feel new and unique. Painting everything else with fresh white completed the transformation. 2 coats of Benjamin Moore Cabinet coat with sanding in between the coats allowed the paint to go on smooth and bond properly. Love painting cabinets all over Brooklyn and NYC.

NYC Interior Painter

After living in their condo for 2 years this client wanted to refresh the place with new colors, patched holes, to make the place feel new again.

The super of the building recently removed the non-working intercom phone leaving a gapping hole in the living room wall. We were able to completely patch and plaster the hole so you can’t even tell it was there in the first place. After caulking around the windows and plastering the other cracks the place was ready for painting. Using fresh rollers and proper technique we repainted their accent wall to show seamless color. The previous paint job showed major flashings which distracted the eye from the tv the wall was situated on. We painted the bathroom with Benjamin Moore Aura Bath & Spa to ensure longevity in the hot humid environment that is a bathroom. Always grateful to paint beautiful Upper West Side apartments.

Staining Wooden stairs and handrails in Howard Beach

Staircases can be the focal point of any foyer. Many people have used them to create a dramatic entrance into a party. Whether you want to create a splash entrance or just want your wooden staircase to look good, staining and protecting it properly is crucial. This client wanted the wooden spindles, banister, and handrails to look prominent while also being protected for the long term. After some intense sanding we applied 2 coat of stain. Sanding and removing dust in between each coat allowed the wood to become smooth and sleek. Once the second coat had dried we applied a clear protective coat to ensure the handrail could handle intense traffic through the years. We love staining wooden handrails, banisters, spindles, and kick plates all over Brooklyn and NYC.

Painting Industrial Facilities In Long Island City

Being based in Long Island City gives us a great opportunity to help other businesses in the bustling industrial area. This local company was moving to a new facility that desperately needed refreshing and a new identity. The client chose their brands colors to adorn the doors, trim, and walls. The exterior roll-up garage doors were covered in rust and failing coatings. We used a industrial strength wire brush to grind off the failings coatings then painted with UV resistant paint to help protect the doors longer. With our state of the art fancy-schmancy spray machine, the T-9, we were able to paint this facility in efficient fashion.

NJ Interior Home Painting

This client was moving back to Jersey City from another state and wanted to make this space feel like theirs before moving in. They chose a bold and powerful blue accent wall, unfortunately our pictures turned out poorly. Trust us the apartment turned out great. We carefully removed 2 mirrors without breaking any glass and causing any bad luck! The rest of the apartment was painted with an interior designer favorite Benjamin Moore White matte. We noticed that the window sill in the living room was looking swollen like there is a small leak in the window frame. We immediately re-caulked around the windowsill with elastomeric caulking to prevent further damage. We’re always grateful to be a go-to apartment painter in Jersey City.

Painting Kitchen Cabinets in Hoboken

We love being the go-to Hoboken kitchen cabinet painter because the client is always speechless at the results. This client had recently replaced their countertop and was looking to update the rest of the kitchen to match the new modern vibe. We quickly removed all doors and drawers fronts so we could spray them off-site with multiple coats of Benjamin Moore cabinet coat. With careful sanding in between the coats we returned to paint the built-in cabinet webbing and reinstall the doors. The difference between the before and after is so drastic the client wasn’t even sure they were the same cabinets! As Hoboken kitchen cabinet painting contractors we have seen the impact a cabinet color change can make on the whole kitchen. We are proud of this project in particular because we felt honored to be the last step in the client’s kitchen remodel.

Flatbush-Ditmas Park Condo Painter

Painting this unique 2 level townhouse in Ditmas Park was a fun weekend challenge. The client had just bought this home and was looking to paint the entire place before moving in. As experienced townhouse painters in Brooklyn we were able to paint the entire place in 2 days. There’s a huge built in bookshelf in the living room that the new owner was considering getting rid of because of it looked dingy, dirty, and old. We convinced her to let us paint it first to see if it would bring it back to life and sure enough she loved the new look of the shelf. This client has bold taste as clearly seen by the powerful accent wall in the bedroom. We love painting in the Prospect Park area because the neighborhoods are beautiful and diverse.  Always grateful to do move-in painting. Love making a new homeowner love their new home even more.

NYC Acoustic Ceiling Tile Painter

Moving in any capacity can be a daunting task. This company was making a major move into a new office in Long Island City and was looking to refresh it before finishing their move. Using high traffic paint we painted all walls and hallways, using the trim as a nice accent. The trim matches one of the company’s logo colors further deepening their branding. One of the dingiest looking parts of the new office was the acoustic ceiling tiles. It was clear that this office hadn’t been painted in about 20 years. The pictures below show the before and after of the acoustic tiles. We sprayed the acoustic ceiling tiles with flat ceiling white to make them look new again. Painting acoustic ceiling tiles is a quick and affordable way to make a large ceiling look new again. We had a great experience painting this Long Island City office and love commercial painting projects where we get to help local businesses that are just like us.

Brooklyn Interior Painting

It's hard to beat the views of the water and the Manhattan skyline from this Williamsburg apartment. The tenants had just moved out and the owner was looking for refresh the space before the new tenants moved in. It is always fun to paint apartments in Brooklyn that have this type of view. After we plastered all holes and cracks we proceeded to paint the entire apartment in Benjamin Moore White. The giant living room windows let in tons of light that make the space look large and inviting. We were able to paint the whole place in 2 days right before the new tenants moved in. The owner had a tight timeframe and we were able to complete the move in/move out home painting just in time.

Painting A Condo Near Prospect Park

When this family called us they were looking to refresh their condo before doing some redecorating. With young children in the household the walls of the entryway were showing wear and tear. Lots of scuff marks and dirt/oil build up on the walls from constant touching and activity. We painted the entire Prospect Heights apartment, making it look new again. We painted the entryway walls with Benjamin Moore Scuff-X to help protect the walls. With the abundance of natural light in the living room, the Benjamin Moore Aura Super White looks great and super clean. We love painting homes in Prospect Heights. Each home is so unique which matches the eclectic surrounding area. We are honored to be a top painter in the Prospect Heights area.

Installing Wallpaper in Long Island City 

This couple called us after moving into a new home in Long Island City. As professional wallpaper hangers in Long Island City we were happy to help. The client chose a beautiful elaborate wallpaper for an accent wall in their bedroom. We began the process by cleaning and patching the surface to ensure the wallpaper would adhere properly and look smooth throughout. After that we primed the wall. We carefully applied the wallpaper paste and smoothed the paper onto the wall. We love the pattern they chose and shows how powerful wallpaper can be as an accent wall in a home. Whether installing or removing wallpaper in Queens, the results can be drastic and amazing.

Painting Historic Ornamental Railings in Upper West Side, Manhattan

The Upper West Side of Manhattan is home to beautiful designed buildings with ornate and historic details. When this client contacted us they were looking to revive their historic ornamental second floor railing. It was rusting and in need of rescuing. As experience exterior metal painters in NYC we first covered the ground below and behind the railing. We spent the first day grinding off rust and failing coatings. When grinding historic and beautiful railings it is important not to rush. Each curve of the railing needs to be considered. After grinding we applied the great product Rust Destroyer which eliminates rust while also providing a base coat on the metal. Last step we painted the railing with 2 finish coats of UV resistant industrial coatings. It was quite a joy to see the beautiful finished product. We are grateful to be one of the go-to painting companies when it comes to grinding and painting metal railings in Manhattan.
