Built-in Paint: Emerald Isle by Benjamin Moore
One of the many times I love my job is when we get to work with bold, eye catching colors. We just completed this beautiful built-in desk for a client located in Myers Park. I can’t wait to see the final touches. Stay tuned, because the customer promised after photos once the ordered drawer pulls have been installed.
Benjamin Moore describes Emerald Isle as a bold, saturated color that brings spaces to life! I agree this desk has come to life and I hope the customer finds many productive hours of work at this beautiful desk!
Process of Painting Office Built-in
This built in was originally painted in a white satin sheen. We first gave the built-in a light sanding, then cleaned it with TSP cleaner. We then primed with a tint similar to the Emerald Isle paint color. We sprayed the shelves and drawers to allow for a fresher consistent look and then used a sponge roller and a very soft angled brush on all other parts of the built-in. It’s important to use a soft brush! A soft brush leaves few brush marks. They cost a little more, but well worth the expense.
