Greetings and welcome to the project blog for the residential home transformation in Eden Prairie. We are thrilled to be showing you the project from start to finish!
Wednesday, January 20th: Good morning!
The crew is wrapping up with painting the 2nd coat on the walls and also doing clean up and touch ups. We’ll be sharing some photos of the completed project tomorrow! We can’t wait!
Monday, January 18th: Good morning and happy Monday!
The crew is working on freshening up the walls in the stairway and lower level rooms. Lots of the plastic, paper, and tape has come off the windows and millwork so it’s really starting to brighten up!
Friday, January 15th: Hello and TGIF!
The crew finished up spraying the white enamel yesterday.
Next up is spraying the ceilings and then completing the wall painting. We’ll share more photos once we get them from the crew. Thanks!
Ceilings are a go!
Wednesday, January 13th: Greetings!
We’re nearing the finish line! The crew is completing more filling and sanding before they spray the 2nd and final coat of white enamel on the millwork, trim, and doors. They’ll then complete the included ceilings and paint the walls.
We’ll then begin to remove plastic, paper and tape and also reinstall cabinet doors and drawers.
Monday, January 11th: Good afternoon!
We are seeing deep gray … and we are transported to the beach and the ocean with this beautiful and rich color – Ocean Floor by Benjamin Moore.
The crew completed spraying the primer and worked on filling wood graining and sanding it smooth over the weekend. They also sprayed the 1st coat and 2nd coats of enamel with the gray color. Lots of changes over the weekend and we are just loving the color choice!
Once the gray is done, they’ll move onto the millwork, trim, doors, etc with the White Dove color.
Friday, January 8th: Good morning and happy Friday!
The crew is cruising along. Later in the day yesterday they started to spray the primer on all of the millwork. Next up with be letting the areas dry and then beginning to fill in wood graining and sanding it down. After filling and sanding, they’ll spray the 1st coat of enamel.
Wednesday, January 6th: Greetings and happy New Year!
After the holidays, we are back onsite and ready to completely transform the basement areas of this home. Most of the millwork – baseboards, frames, doors and built in cabinets are getting a major refresh. We’ll also be painting more walls and several ceiling areas. We can’t wait to share the process and progression of this project. Stay tuned for updated and photos.
Tuesday, December 22nd: Good afternoon!
The crew is continuing to paint walls as well as complete touch ups, clean, and move back furniture. They’ll be wrapping up today aside from final touch ups. We can’t wait to share the full before and afters.
Friday, December 18th: Good morning and Happy Friday!
The crew is continuing in the upper level – master bedroom and bathroom, hallway, bedrooms, and laundry room. The primer is sprayed and they are working on filling the wood grains – using Bondo and then sanding it smooth. They’ll vacuum the dust before they spray the enamel coat.
Wednesday, December 16th: Good morning!
The crew has wrapped on the main level refresh project.
They are now prepping on select areas of the upper level. They’ll be refinishing the millwork and select bedroom vanities. The crew will also be refreshing the walls of most bedrooms, hallway, and laundry room. We can’t wait to share more progress.
Next step – spraying the 1st enamel coat.
Friday, December 11th: Good afternoon and happy Friday!
The crew is finishing spraying the enamel and today they are cleaning up, taking down paper and plastic, and putting the drawers and doors back on. They are also installing the hardware.
They’ll begin to paint the walls tomorrow. So many changes and everything is looking so good!
Wednesday, December 9th: Greetings!
The started spraying the 1st enamel coat yesterday afternoon and they are continuing today. Once the enamel is sprayed and dried, they will begin another round of wood filling. This is a finish requested by the client to fill in the wood graining so it is not visible through the primer and enamel coats of paint.
Tuesday, December 8th: Good afternoon!
Wood filling, sanding, and caulking continues at this home. The crew is working on filling in the wood graining and prepping for the first coat of enamel.
Monday, December 7th: Greetings!
The primer is sprayed on baseboards, window and door frames, and cabinet boxes. Our next step is to use a wood filler, Bondo to fill in visible graining and then sand it down. This will yield a smooth and seamless finish without graining showing through. After they’ve completed the Bondo and sanding they’ll spray the 1st coat of enamel.
They are also spraying primer on the 2nd side of doors. Take a look at the progress!
Friday, December 4th: Good morning!
The crew is onsite and continuing to spray the primer on all working surfaces. Doors, drawers, trim, and windows.
Thursday, December 3rd: Greetings!
And the spraying has begun!
Spraying the doors and then moving onto the boxes and built ins.
The crew is finishing their prep and covering and will begin to spray the primer today. Here are a few more photos of the extensive prep work being done.
Tuesday, December 1st: Good afternoon!
Happy December! We have a new month and a new project to share.
We will be prepping and finishing the kitchen cabinets, den built in cabinets, select bathroom vanities, and the office built ins and desk area. The main level and select upper level baseboards, window frames, door frames, and doors will also be refreshed from existing wood to an enameled white finish.
The changes are going to be immense and we can’t wait to take you on the journey. The journey begins with two full days of prep work – this will include lots of covering, taping off, and removing doors and drawers from the cabinetry.
After prep is complete, they will spray a prime coat on all millwork and included cabinetry. From there, sanding and filling of visible wood grains will occur before spraying the 1st and 2nd enamel coats. After the millwork and cabinetry is complete, the wall painting can be rolled out.
We’ll share photos and progress updates throughout the project so stay tuned here on the blog!
Thanks so much for following along!
