Below are photos from our project at Frederick Law Olmsted Historic Site near Boston, Massachusetts in 2011. In Olmsted's Plant Room, pebble-dash stucco walls were painted over with white in the 1960's. Using a small stripped reveal as reference, we faux painted the white pebbled walls to recreate the original 19th Century look. Six doors in the Main Hall and Olmsted's office were also faux-painted to create mahogany and cherry wood finishes. This project was completed in collaboration with Craddock Painting, LLC.
Below are photos from a project at Federal Hall National Monument in New York City, 2010/11. Here we restored and recreated interior decorative finishes on the cast-iron doors and stair-rails. In collaboration with Craddock Painting LLC and AM Art Conservation.

HISTORIC PRESERVATION AND FINISHES
We have completed several projects to conserve and re-create historic interior finishes for National Park Service sites and museums.
