Foyer in Columbus
Here's another such example, from a foyer we painted in Columbus. The light walls allow the stark white trim to provide the lines of structure and pathways into the home.
All of the trim and windows, including the tongue in groove pine ceiling, started as dark stained wood. We sanded and primed everything with a premium oil-based primer. Filled all the nail holes and caulked all the gaps. We even bondo’d the knots to create a smoother trim finish. 2 coats of Semi-Gloss latex tinted to Ben Moore Acadia White were applied to finish the trim surfaces. We also painted the walls Ben Moore Powell Buff in flat finish. The raw stone fireplace was primed with masonry primer and painted with DTM Primer/Finish to match the walls.

Common Drywall Problems
It’s inevitable, drywall damage is all too common for many homeowners. Dings, dents and holes can quickly make your room look unkempt. These simple issues require meticulous repairs with attention to detail. If not properly taken care of, it can result in an uneven and unappealing appearance or, worse, structural damage to your walls.
If you have any of these issues below, our CertaPro Painters® house painting experts have years of experience in drywall repair, making it easy for them to deliver impeccable results quickly and efficiently.
There are many factors that can damage drywall, leaving behind holes, cracks, dents and damp patches of all sizes. Some of the most common types of damaged drywall include:
Holes are usually caused by accidental forceful impact, like a door being slammed open or someone falling into the wall. Depending on what made the impact, you could be looking at anything from a small puncture to a worrying crater.
Removing anything attached to the wall, whether it be tile, wallpaper, or even objects like mirrors, can lead to pieces of drywall coming off.
Water damage and moisture
Usually caused by leaking pipes, water damage weakens the structural integrity of the drywall and can even be a health hazard. Even if there are no visible water patches, moisture in the walls or ceilings can lead to other problems like cracks and loosened joint tape.
This happens most often when a nail is not securely attached to a joint or stud and pops through the drywall.
Dented corner bead
The corner bead is a piece of metal used to join two sheets of drywall at a corner. It can become dented with impact or regular wear and tear.
Careless furniture handling can lead to pencil-like marks at best and holes in the drywall at worst.
