June 2013

We restored a beautiful staircase on a home in Point Piper, Sydney.  The existing staircase was varnished timber.  A dado panelling of MDF was constructed to line the wall running up the stairs and also the stairwell landings, there were three floors.  The dado and spindles were sprayed white Semigloss Enamel Antique White USA, and the railing and treads were stained a black/walnut mixture and a satin polyurethane finish applied.

The critical issues were: clean lines between the black and the white, and to have a beautiful smooth finish on the painted timber and the black treads.  The treads were a lot of work as they had been lined in carpet which had been tacked down.

It turned out beautifully, and the client was delighted!

    Impressive work ! Restoration of stair case is never easy, but you guys done it perfectly.A couple of months back we hired a local painting company to restore our Alexandria home stair case.They done it perfectly except the final coating. Now that i have seen the example work of meninwhite, next time i wish to hire you guys for for similar task.
