Ekena Millwork Brighton Corbel

Heather from Castle Rock, Colorado let us know that she was in the process of updating her kitchen when she purchased the Ekena Millwork Brighton corbel. Once it was installed, Heather reported that she loves it and will shop with us for the next home improvement project.

The Ekena Millwork Brighton corbel is part of the Rustic Collection of corbels. Our Rustic wood millwork utilizes the technologies of today to build the ‘log and timber’ wood products that have been in architecture for centuries. Because our products are not kiln dried, each item in our Rustic Collection is 100% unique and will contain the natural variations that the wood species offers. Your wood bracket, corbel, rafter tail, will contain unique colors, grains, textures, knots, sapwood & heartwood content and possible sap bleeding, and even natural checking, splitting & cracks. These natural variations are what make the Rustic Collection stand out from the rest.

Ekena Millwork Granada Ceiling Medallion

Darla and Richard from New Castle, Pennsylvania were in need of a ceiling medallion to pair with their newly purchased French empire crystal chandelier. They purchased an Ekena Millwork Granada ceiling medallion. Once it was delivered, they used a pearl mist rust-oleum spray paint along with a gold acrylic paint to create a delicate coat of color. Paint dried, ceiling medallion installed and chandelier attached, the project looks stunning. Darla and Richard left us with these fine comments:

The medallions, along with the crystal chandeliers when lit really add to the luster and shine of our ceilings and walls. It is so beautiful that sometimes my husband and I sit for hours in our living and dining rooms just to be able to admire the auras of light on our ceiling and walls. Pictures do not even justify the beauty. Thank you!

Our ceiling medallion collections are modeled after original historical patterns and designs. Made out of lightweight yet durable solid urethane, the medallions are perfect for easy installation. With a couple of screws and adhesive glue, the medallion can be installed to its proper place in a jiffy.  They are fully primed and ready for your paint. Finally, these ceiling medallions are in stock and ready for immediate shipment!

Ekena Millwork Maple Olympic Wood Brackets

Brackets come in all shapes and materials with different intending functions. However, the basic function of a bracket is to support another object, whether it is a shelf, countertop or range hood.

The benefits of purchasing a bracket is obvious, so when Paul from Shell Beach, California purchased several for his kitchen island. He purchased multiple Ekena Millwork Maple Olympic wood brackets to not only to support the countertop, but to enhance the appearance as well. Painted white, the brackets perfectly match the rest of the kitchen. The project looks great!

Ekena Millwork wood brackets are the perfect addition to any home improvement project. With proper installation, these wood brackets can support up to 150lbs. The brackets gives you, the customer, the flexibility to use a decorative bracket for support or just decorative use! You can find these brackets in a variety of wood species.

Ekena Millwork Orleans Ceiling Medallion with Light Fixture

Last month, recent Architectural Depot customers Tim and Katie bought several ceiling medallions for their home. Of the several options online, they purchased an Ekena Millwork Orleans ceiling medallion for one of the new rooms in the home.

Originally, the ceiling medallion that they ordered came in a primed white finish. Looking at the picture of their picture and comparing it to the item online, the difference is obvious. Tim and Katie decided that since the medallion came in a primed finish, it would easy to paint it. After looking at the different paint options, they chose some paint that would match the lighting fixture colors. Once the product was completed, they sent us the project photo and it came out great!

Our ceiling medallion collections are modeled after original historical patterns and designs. Made out of lightweight yet durable solid urethane, the medallions are perfect for easy installation. With a couple of screws and adhesive glue, the medallion can be installed to its proper place in a jiffy.  They are fully primed and ready for your paint. Finally, these ceiling medallions are in stock and ready for immediate shipment!

Behind the Scenes: Ceiling Medallions with Finishes

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 Baltimore ceiling medallion that had the rubbed bronze 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.
