Polo Club Revamp 2019

Fabulous revamp of the prestigious Cowdray Park Polo Club, Ambersham, West Sussex.

This was a full-on project, necessary before the upcoming Polo season!

With the wooden floors and bars stripped back we applied a special wood dye and finished off with a durable lacquer.

Woodwork over and done with we dusted off before embarking on the paintwork including spraying the ceilings with Johnstone’s white vinyl matt and painting the walls in a Farrow & Ball ‘elephants breath mixed with Johnstone’s soft sheen for the perfect finish to the hall.

We then moved on to the kitchen and bathrooms, painting these in a white vinyl silk before completing all woodwork with an oil-based gloss.

Beautiful Beams

Beautiful Beams

We were lucky enough to be invited to work at a wonderful house full of beautiful beams – why would you want to change them we hear you ask?

Rather than ‘changing’ them, we’ve enhanced them!

Using our favourite Farrow & Ball paint range choosing a sympathetic grey eggshell paint for the beams, edged with an acrylic white eggshell for the window frames and skirting and finished with a coat of ‘blackened’ on the walls.

We love it, the client loves it – what do you think?

Woodwork

We all talk about painting and decorating and instantly we’re thinking walls – do you agree?

But, what about the other – probably more fiddly bits? Like the woodwork!

Doors, skirting, balustrades, window frames – there’s a lot there.

These take a fair bit of time. You think, you have to strip, sand, and prime before you can actually do the visible bit.

Check out a previous blog to see more examples of our work with wood, it’s the small things that make the difference!

Carpentry & Woodwork

See, when you say Painter and Decorator, what comes to mind? Walls! Walls and woodwork – aha, woodwork! Where does that come from?

We are fortunate to have a skilled team that can turn their hands to a variety of specialist areas – one of which is carpentry.

Now, we’re not saying we can climb on a roof and do the technical stuff that a super qualified chippie undertakes, they really are masters of the trade – however, when it comes to useful shelving, space making stud walling or even some tidy ‘boxing in’ of those unsightly pipes, we excel!

Having the ability to undertake a project from start to finish makes for an efficient and tidy and hopefully unobtrusive job.

Take a look at our slideshow of ‘carpentry’ based projects, I’m sure you’ll agree we really can offer it all!

Spray-painted stabling

Stabling fit for the King of horses!

So, last week we showcased the ‘pretty’ side of stables – this week, the sequel – the practical aspect of them.

Cleanliness has to be paramount when it comes to stabling horses so a fresh clean coat of easy clean, durable paint is what was needed.

With David’s love of the latest methods, the work was expertly spray-painted leaving the smoothest of surfaces.

With a blending tone of black to match the outer woodwork and the décor of the tack-room I’m sure you’ll agree that the practical really can be as pretty!
