Behind the Scenes: Ekena Millwork Bradford Ceiling Medallion with Custom Finish

Typically, most of our customers order unfinished ceiling medallions because they can paint the medallion themselves. Well, we at Architectural Depot understand the importance of getting projects done in a cost efficient and timely matter. While there are some who will still want to purchase unfinished ceilings, this Factory Friday post is for those who want a quality paint job on a quality ceiling medallion.

Pictured below is the Ekena Millwork Bradford ceiling medallion that had the bronze blue patina (metallic series) finish applied to it.

The benefits of having our warehouse team paint the ceiling medallion definitely outweigh attempting to paint it yourself. The most obvious one is that you receive a finished medallion with an even coat, without smudges or air bubbles. In addition, our team will not ship anything less than high quality products. Overall, it will take less time to purchase a medallion that has already been painted rather than doing it yourself. Simply stated, it is more cost effective to purchase the medallion painted rather than taking the risk of painting it yourself incorrectly and having to purchase another one to repaint.

All of our ceiling medallions come factory primed and ready for your paint finish. You can faux finish, paint, faux stain, marbleize, or crackle your ceiling medallion with paints that can be found at most home improvement stores. For those of us who are not so patient or artistic, we offer our complete line of ceiling medallions in the finishes below. Each of our finishes are hand finished by paint artisans and then factory clear coated for a lifetime of beauty.

Behind the Scenes: Ekena Millwork Logan Hidden Support Bracket

Architecturally speaking, it is often rare to have a one size fits all kind of product. The industry is simply not created that way. Here at ArchitecturalDepot.com we understand that and make every effort to better equip our customers with custom sizes and finishes.

Brackets come in all shapes and sizes. Really, there are different shaped brackets available out there! One of the best examples of this reality is the Ekena Millwork hidden support steel brackets.

Pictured below are several Ekena Millwork Logan hidden support steel brackets. Why are they hanging like that you might ask? Well, they recently had a white finish applied to them. Each one of those hidden brackets were individually finished and inspected for quality control.

The hidden brackets are such versatile products; they can be used as a knee/ pony wall support or an island countertop support. It is perfectly concealed by the countertop and appears to be floating. Essentially, it will protect your countertop (or whatever use you purchased it for) from cracking when leaned upon. Plus, being made out of steel, there is a durability factor that you can trust.
