Suspended Spray Project


This week we had an interesting suspended frame project in our small shop in NYC.  These are actually stair railings for a 1940’s staircase in Soho.  There are 30 pieces in total – 15 black frames and 15 yellow mesh pieces.

Unsprayed frames

The frames were suspended so they could be sprayed on all sides.


All pieces were delivered to us primed.  We gave a good sanding before starting the first coat.

We had to utilize our hallway for extra hanging capabilities.
