To My Former Glory
A recent project completed by One Brush Painting was to restore a relatively run down garage and back wall of a turn of the century home in High Park. The paint was literally pealing upwards off the walls and many parts of the cedar wood siding were rotting. A massive undertaking, the work involved applying a coat of thick paint thinner, scraping the entire walls, then belt sanding and hand sanding them. All told we must have went through upwards of 30 to 40 sheets of 50 grit belt sanding paper. After the prep work was completed we applied a thick coat of exterior white wood primer followed by two coats of finished cottage grey paint. To reach the upper portions of the 3 storey wall we had to rent 2 storey's worth of scaffolding and place a 6 foot step ladder on top! The results (depicted below) were better then we had expected. But then again this is what we do and we do it very well. In the end we restored the exterior walls to their former glory, proving that at One Brush Painting, no job is too big for our britches. We are looking to return to the scene to quote the customer on some interior work.
