Private Residence - Eden Prairie, Spring 2019
Greetings and welcome to your project page for the interior painting project at this residential home in Eden Prairie. We are excited to be onsite with you!
Tuesday, April 16th: It's amazing what a week can do!
Thankfully, this week we are not prepping for a snow storm, but instead will be awarded sunshine and 70 degree weather this weekend!
We're nearing the end... the crew is wrapping up with reinstalling the cabinets and drawers, putting on hardware, painting the remaining walls, and touching up as needed. We are thrilled with the color palette and can't wait to see the final and finished product! Stay tuned for more pictures in the next day or two. Thanks!
IT'S SAFE TO SAY WE CAN PUT THE HEAVY COATS AWAY!

Monday, April 15th: Greetings and happy Monday!
We hope you had a great weekend! It certainly was an exciting final day of the Master's as Tiger made a comeback like none before and won his 5th Green Jacket. After overcoming a spinal fusion surgery, at 43 years old and trailing for the first 54 holes, he tapped in for a bogey on the 18th and victory was his! This is Tiger's 5th Master's win and is only surpassed by Jack Nicklaus with 6 wins. Congratulations to Tiger Woods!
The crew got right to work on Friday with finishing prep of the kitchen cabinets and other millwork to be sprayed. They sprayed a primer coat, completed lots of sanding and applied bondo to fill uneven surfaces and imperfections on the millwork. This process of filling with bondo and then sanding yields a smooth finish without the grains of wood showing through the enamel. Over the weekend they also sprayed the 1st and 2nd coats of enamel. Next, they'll be finishing up with the enamel, painting the walls in rooms they've sprayed, putting cabinet doors and drawers back in place, and finally completing a thorough clean up.

Can you guess how many tubes of Bondo the crew will go through?
Looking forward to seeing all the of the paper, plastic, and tape removed!

Friday, April 12th: Hello and TGIF!
Well, we survived another April snow storm! I think parts of the state saw, snow, rain, sleet, hail, massive wind gusts, and even dust blown all the way from Texas- imagine that! At least this snow won't stick around for too long as the weather seems to be warming through the weekend and into next week.
Golf fans rejoice! It's Master's Weekend (check the leader board here) and round two off and rolling with major champions bunched at the top. Time will tell who will make it to the 3rd and 4th rounds and finally awarded the famed Green Jacket.
The crew will be continuing their prep and painting in the common areas as well as starting to spray the enamel. We'll continue to post photos of the project and it continues to develop and change with the paint application.

Wednesday, April 10th: Good afternoon!
And so it begins... the curse of the April snow storm has started. We hope you can all take caution and be careful when out and about!
The crews are continuing to apply the 2nd coat of paint on the included walls on the main level, upper leve, and basement. Things are really coming along and we are loving the new color scheme!

Tuesday, April 9th: Hello and welcome to the project blog for an interior painting project in Eden Prairie!
The crew began their prep work yesterday and is today continuing to prep in certain areas - laying down paper and plastic, taping around door frames, windows, baseboards, etc. Basically, we are full on covering all surfaces that are not being painted, which means lots of paper, plastic and tape- OH MY!
Today, they've also started painting of select rooms- ceilings and walls and they will begin their spraying enamel in the kitchen, living room, and master bathroom vanities at the end of the week.
We're looking forward to updating you all with progress photos and can't wait to see the transformation unfold!
Prep also involved patching, sanding, and smoothing surfaces before painting.
Going down... drop cloths, tape, and plastic.
