Dundean Studios HONORED BY
PAINTING AND DECORATING CONTRACTORS OF AMERICA
at the 2015 Painting & Decorating Expo

(ST. LOUIS – March 2015) Dundean Studios of New Jersey was recognized with a 2015 KILZ® Picture it Painted Professionally (PIPP) award from the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA). The award was presented during the 2015 Painting & Decorating Expo, March 4-7 in Charleston, SC. The annual awards program is hosted by PDCA and recognizes the best performances in the coatings application industry by individuals and contracting company members of PDCA.

The KILZ® PIPP Awards are presented for overall project excellence and superior craftsmanship. Awards were distributed in the following categories: Commercial Decorative, Commercial Interior, Commercial Restoration: Exterior, Commercial Restoration: Interior, Commercial Wallcovering, Industrial Exterior, Industrial Interior, Residential Decorative, Residential Interior, Residential Restoration: Interior, and Community Improvement Awards.

Dundean Studios won an award in the Residential Restoration: Interior Category. Details on their project are listed below.

After homeowners of an eight bedroom farmhouse remodeled, they discovered a 3-story mural painted on 48 panels of faux marble and trompe l’oeil moldings which decorated the foyer. The original signatures on the tiles dated the piece from 1857, and Dundean Studios could only guess that the original owners covered the piece up with wallpaper after decay had begun to set in. The new owners wanted to revitalize the piece.

After researching artists of the time and demonstrating superior craftsmanship than the first company the homeowners hired, Dundean Studios was brought in to finsih the work. A little over one year later, and after extensive research to replicate the original artists work, Dundean Studios was able to wow the homeowners with the finished product.
