Residential Painting Garland, TX

 This home located in Garland, Texas had a heavy swirl texture that was chipping away. My client wanted to convert this texture to a smoother wall. Primer and 2 coats of paint were applied for the final finished look

This painting project located in Garland, TX was in need for a new texture. The goal was to maintain a dust free working environment and float the walls smooth by filling in the lower recessed areas of this thick uneven texture. My approach was to use a shop vacuum and a 4 inch blade scrapping and letting the vacuum catch the debris. Skimming  the entire surface Then applying a second coat of compound, and a designed texture. The amount of movement in the texture can be varied. The  stone like wall surface is sustainable and forgiving if it needs touched up.  700 square feet of kitchen, living room, and hallway walls.

The dark gold paint will be changed to Benjamin Moore color Putnam Ivory.

PVA drywall primer by Glidden and two coats of Benjamin Moore Interior Flat Acrylic Latex. All transitions were caulked to trim prior to painting. The new texture is perfect for enhancing with a tone on tone Colorwash for a stone like Tuscany finish. A very nice transition from a whimsical heavy fan texture to an elegant smooth stone pitted organic wall.
