Painted chairs in Longford restaurant

Listed under Adam Bermingham, Blog, hand-painted furniture Posted Sep 12 2013

Adam Bermingham, Traditional Painter in Roscommon, Ireland describes the process he goes through with a new client regarding painted chairs in Longford restaurant.

Before anything gets painted in my workshop, there is a process to go through, a process that is vitally important, both to the end result and the overall experience of my clients… colour and finish decisions; colour matching; and making each stage as easy, convenient and stress free as possible.

Customer Consultation

hand painted furniture in Longford A lot of my quotes are given online using photographs and email, and phone calls. It does work well, but this approach is usually born out of necessity – the size of the catchment area I cover, and the time involved, means that for me, travelling to give a quote is often not a practical choice. There is however, no substitute for meeting the client (and them meeting you).

Seeing the work, and understanding what is required, exactly, is a key part of the process. Let’s use a recent on-site visit as an example

Hand Painted Furniture in Longford

A number of weeks ago, I was contacted by Gallery Cafe in Longford via my Facebook Page. The owner was unsure about the work she wanted carrying out, beyond knowing that she wanted to change the look of the tables and chairs in her restaurant.

Taking into account the current colour scheme, we chose 4 colours from the Farrow & Ball range. I took one chair back to the workshop and after prep and priming, I painted it in each of the 4 colours we had selected, taking photographs each time and emailing them to the client.

Let the public decide

Once the colour samples were complete, the client chose her 2 favorites and I completed another chair. Now we had 2 chairs in different colours. The plan was to leave the chairs in the Restaurant for a period of time and let the customers decide what they thought of the new look.

Protective Coating

The chairs, especially in a high traffic environment, need protection. I offered 2 finish options. As you can see in the image above, one has a clear Matt varnish applied and one a clear Satin, both Ronseal…

I hope to hear back about their findings in the coming weeks and complete the contact on the remaining chairs and tables. To minimize the impact on their business, I plan to do this in stages over a period of time, 2 chairs and 1 table each week.
