16th Century Manor House

We initially painted the inside of the fireplaces to match the Farrow and ball wall colour. Once the client arrived on site the client wanted the whole fireplace painting black which was totally the right decision and we were happy that this decision was made on these fireplaces. 

When decorating these types of properties as an experienced decorating team you have to paint things in the correct way to start but minor adjustments can be made later on to suit the clients needs which is what happened in this instance. We were hoping that the client made this decision as both fireplaces look fantastic now.

This is a relatively easy change when using Zinsser Allcoat as it’s designed for wood metal or concrete i.e. Render , brick etc, but all changes take time and can sometimes be challenging and costly.
