FAUX REAL LLC

Reality is ultimately altogether different from what we see or think.  Yet, what we see contributes much to influence what we think, such that reality becomes a side issue.

     FINISHES

STARTING WHAT I FINISH… 
  • I always visit the site before giving an estimate.
  • I charge by the project or by the hour contingent upon scope and scale.
  • I bring my full attention, expertise, and high artistic standards to every job.
  • I consider preparation paramount. 
  • I aim to please your eye. My eye facilitates that process. 
  • I don’t sell you anything you don’t want.
  • I don’t skip steps, however...Flights of fancy requiring scaffolding and extension ladders (ceilings, stairs, areas demanding caution and care) cost more.

WOOD…IF I COULD, and I CAN. 
 
Prefer bleached pine to mahogany --- guitars and heating grates of rusted metal – walls of translucent opal -- bright copper columns?  I’ve carved stone from plywood; customized sconces, cabinetry and accoutrements; finessed faux frescoes; transformed Early American into fashionably late French Country (VOILA!); and brought an imaginary “dragon fly” table in for a landing on a 3’ x 3’ wall.  If it’s pretty you want, or even (pretty) ugly… FAUX REAL brings it home and/or to your place of business.

Faux:        A fix, a way of forgiving an area its inconsistencies; a means of blending, disguising, integrating and replicating a natural looking finish; of creating something of beauty from another dimension (2D, of course).  All courtesy of some paint, plaster, brushes, and an eye for detail. 
Paint is goof proof when you find the right goof to wield the brush.
