Stone And Marble Fireplace Treatments
Interior designer Diane Quinton of Studio Q Interiors contacted me to replicate a marble sample for one of two fireplaces for client.
The other fireplace was to have a subtle stone pattern to match a color chip. After matching the samples and getting them approved I went to the clients
house and completed the job in three days. This included a protective clear-coat over both. One day was needed to make two sample-boards to match the marble slab.

This client had a stone fireplace that she wanted to have more Marbling or
veining character added to it.  The alcoves were also faux treated a golden tone.

The fireplace was primed black and then painted with pure powdered bronze leaf metal..
It was then distressed and a antique patina was applied with the clear over-coat.

I  faux painted this large fireplace to appear like aged stone with marble columns.
It was previously painted an industrial white. Now it has much needed character & looks just like stone.
the side columns were treated to a matching polished marble treatment.
