Remodel of Previous Posted Job Is Complete

Gray paint, black granite and glass tiles give stunning results to this bathroom update. These photos were taken when I went back to repair several areas and replace some of the paper on a job I had previously posted here on my Blog.

The homeowners were aware the paper should go up last but were not sure when, or if they were going to change out the tile and countertop. Because of this I did make sure they ordered slightly more paper than needed.

So a few weeks later I got a call. It seems like they decided to change the tile and the counter right after I installed the paper 🙂

When I walked back into this bathroom I was in awe at the difference!
I love the color they painted the cabinets…LOVE the glass tile, and…well, just everything!
It is a remarkable change for such a small space.

You will see the original paper ~ and then this paper, but it was definitely not this gorgeous!

WallPaper & Faux Plaster Finish Combo

 

Part of the kitchen and breakfast area is shown above.

This home flooded and the floors and walls needed to be replaced, and/or repaired.
The kitchen wallpaper was the homeowner’s favorite and she really wanted to find the same thing to replace it.
Unfortunately it was no longer made, but she did have enough left over from the original job to replace the main area of the kitchen, just not enough for the breakfast room.
*I had an idea*   :)
I asked her: “Why don’t you have a chair rail put up around the breakfast room and I can add a faux plaster finish below it, matching the colors to the wallpaper’s background?”
She loved the idea!
About 12 inches of wall was removed all around the home.
It was quite a bit of work to remove what was left of the old papers on the now dry sheetrock.
I also stripped the paper from all the walls in two bathrooms, primed, then faux plastered and painted those rooms as well.
 
Did I tell you I was her original paperhanger which was 12 years prior?
It was just a coincidence that she found me, but BOTH of us were very glad to see each other again.

The paper was used to make a border around the top because the homeowner wanted to preserve a bit of it.

I have been a professional paperhanger in the Houston and Cypress, Texas areas for several decades. I learned my craft as an apprentice. I was taught by two very skilled ‘wallpaper ladies’ who were perfectionists. They asked, and expected, no less of me. I am a proud member of the Wallcovering Installers Association which allows me to keep up with the latest products, techniques and wallcovering materials. It is an ever changing industry and, like anything else, being professional means I must stay informed. You can trust me to install your material like I was working in my own home. I am neat, honest, conscientious, and truly enjoy what I do for a living.

Photo Mural Repair

This mural in a local pizza business was damaged and needed either to be replaced or repaired, if possible.
You can judge for yourself how the repair worked out. The first two photos show some of the damage. I removed a 3/4 inch strip of the loose material, then touched up areas to bring it back as close to it’s original state as possible.

Teal and Gold Powder Bath

I loved this paper so much I may hang it in a room in my own home. The dark paper was the original paper.
Although there was some prep work, I did not have to worry about much of it because the homeowner removed all the existing paper and took down the lights and other things from the walls. He did an amazing job, I must add. I then repaired some areas and primed the walls.
The paper went up beautifully although my photos do not capture the finished look as well as I had wished.
