Throughout the process I felt that achieving the 'right look' for a high-end architectural products showroom was just as important to you as it was to me.

Faux Painting a Chicagoland Park Bench

Decorative painting and faux finishing can evoke powerful emotions, bring a smile to your face and give you a jolt of positive energy. Painting in Partnership just painted a Palatine park bench that has that impact on people passing by.

Koi fish, with their big eyes, soft mouths, colorful skins and inviting demeanor, were perfect subjects for Painting in Partnership’s decorative painting project. our color design consultant, mural painter and decorative finisher all worked as a team to create this colorful mural design.

Faux-Painted Koi Pond Bench

Faux-Painted Koi Pond Bench

We painted a mural scene of seven Koi fish in a pond, complete with lily pod leaves, water bubbles and water droplets painted on the leaves in realistic trompe l’oeil fashion. To add a whimsical touch, our muralist painted her hand holding a brush, while putting the final paint stroke on a fish. We then applied a decorative metal finish to the arms and back of the bench to complete the painting.

As you glance at the bench, you are drawn in, touched and inspired. This is the experience that our team of outstanding painting craftsmen, faux finishers and color experts are committed to deliver to you every time.

Painting in Partnership’s reputation for outstanding house painting extends way beyond the Chicago area. We have received many national awards for interior painting, exterior painting, historical restoration and f aux finishing. This painting project was completed as part of Palatine’s Best Seat in Town, a community project to benefit local charities.
