Arthur Thomas Properties of Dover, NH recently contacted Cornerstone Painting regarding a property they manage in downtown Portsmouth, NH. The property is a high end condo that was recently purchased by an out of state couple who are planning to retire in Portsmouth.

The previous owners had painted several accent walls and adjoining trim throughout the condo in a deep burgundy color, which had a beautiful look and feel, but was not to the taste of the new owners. The main bathroom in the condo, which was also a deep bluish gray color was also part of this project.

The first step to this project was to apply one coat of primer to the burgundy walls and trim, which would act as a base coat. Because the color is so deep, we were concerned that two coats paint would not cover. After the primer was applied, we painted the trim with two coats of a semi-gloss latex paint, and the walls were painted with two coats of a satin gloss latex paint. The owners decided to have the colors match the rest of the condo.
