Brooklyn Wallpaper Removal and Interior Painting 

This family of 3 was looking to refresh their already beautiful apartment. The top picture shows the repainted nursery with a warm white color that goes great with the wallpaper and natural light in the room. The room is designed and decorated very well. Everything from the rug to the drapes has been thought out. With clean cuts around the window and wallpaper we focused on complimenting the already put together room.

The second picture is of the master bedroom. This room was more of a challenge. The first step was to completely remove the striped wallpaper in the bedroom. Once removed, we patched and sanded any serious wall damage from the wallpaper removal. The client chose a navy blue that looks fantastic with the white satin trim. The bold color looks great in the natural light and is a huge change from the previous wallpaper.

Repainting the Kith Shoe Store in Park Slope

We are very proud to have painted spaces inside of the alluring KITH store in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Kith emphasizes the creative drive of New York City. The fashion boutique provides sneaker heads and fashionistas with the newest and most innovative styles known to date. To be able to contribute to the beauty of such a creative force was an honor.

Our first area to work on was the foyer. Due to ever changing seasons and promotions, the front foyer was looking a little worn. We proceeded to patch all holes in walls and ceilings left by previous window displays. We then painted the walls and ceilings with Benjamin Moore Scuff X. This paint is built to withstand high traffic. We also painted the black cashier station and painted the back hallway behind the checkout station. We used Scuff X again in the back hallway for the high amount of people running in and out of hallway carrying items. The Scuff X paint is resistant to all types of scuffs/run ins and is easily cleanable. This is the only paint ideal for retail and commercial areas. At the end of the day it was a lot of fun to paint such iconic fashion retailer in the beautiful Park Slope area.

Painting Fire Escapes in Brooklyn

Fire escapes are iconic in New York City for their solution to fire safety and for their unique architectural addition to buildings. Because fire escapes are constantly exposed to NYC's rash of outdoor elements eventually paint fails and rust start to build on them. This can lead to hazardous conditions where the metal becomes oxidized and pieces become vulnerable to breaking.  On top of the safety hazards, the oxidation and decomposition of the fire escapes make historic buildings look decrepit and unappealing. To maintain the beauty and safety of our city, Paintworks and Decorating has made it simple to restore and protect fire escapes.

Earlier this month we helped a local Co-op in Park Slope, Brooklyn, restore and paint their fire escapes. We started by grinding off all rust and failing paint. We proceed to prime it with nothing but the best, Benjamin Moore Super Spec Primer. The primer helps protect the metal while also giving the paint something to bond to. Once primed the fire escapes are given a finish coat of Benjamin Moore High Gloss Oil based paint. The paint makes the metal more resistant to water, freezing and continued oxidation. This process adds years to your fire escapes life. The finished product looks clean, new, and vibrant. Whatever issues you may be having with your fire escape we can help.
