Historic Latzer Home - Highland IL
Front door - Williams Painting fully restored this door. We stripped off more than 20 layers of paint, stain and varnish to get to the original bare wood, before re-staining and varnishing.

Williams Painting also refinished the brass doorknob and doorbell.
Back door - fully restored.
A broken door and peeling paint made this piece uninteresting, and unfit for display.
Stripping old paint and varnish.
Since the material was not real wood, it was impossible to do anything but paint it. A high-gloss black paint, new hardware and gold trim gives this old gal an elegant finish.

1930's curio cabinet
This piece was in really bad shape. It had lots of paint layers, which we stripped, only to discover the wood grain had all but disappeared through years of sanding and repainting.
The owner wanted to convert this piece to a kitchen cabinet with butcher's block top.
Since there was no wood grain left, we faux finished the piece in mahogany.
The back of the cabinet had glass panes, and we created farm scenes in faux glass stain for added interest. the owner is delighted with the result!
Faulke Shutter Restoration - Carlyle, IL
We were asked to see if we could restore the 100+ year old shutters on the Faulke house. The shutters were broken in places, and had lots of old or peeling paint.
Here we are sanding off as much of the old paint as we could. The rest was removed by hand sanding and scraping.
Missing corners were created to give a uniform look.
Priming and painting.
The finished shutters on the house.
Gorgeous and looking brand new!
We are very pleased with the job Williams Painting did on our shutters! They are from the 1800's and needed to be scraped and repaired. Williams Painting not only painted them, but also took the time to make them sturdy again.
They should last a long time now, and look like new ones!
Mr Williams is a very pleasant person to work with.
