Having met and worked for a restoration company hired at The Frick to repair their windows, Restoration 53 asked me to do some faux bois painting on floor to ceiling glass door frames at this 30,000 square foot elegant old estate on Bellevue Boulevard in Newport, Rhode Island. Bought and renovated by David Ford, he asked me if I could restore the grand entranceway and stairwell that had been damaged by water leaks and previous misguided paint jobs. Needless to say, it was both a challenge and delight!
