Local Richmond Moms Win Award for Excellence for Interior Painting

We just love it when our Richmond moms are recognized for their incredible work and outstanding accomplishments! You may recall our story on these amazing women when they appeared on the TV show, “Clean House” (click here for full story). And now, they’re being recognized for superior work. See details below.

s&s(Mechanicsville, VA – October 11, 2013) During the annual conference of the Middle Atlantic Council of Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA), S&S Painting LLC was recognized for overall project excellence and superior craftsmanship. S&S Painting owners Valerie Abbott and Stacey Spear had submitted their entry to the KILZ® Picture It Painted Professionally Award (PIPP), which annually recognizes projects of PDCA contractors. S&S Painting LLC received first place in interior projects for their submission.

The project included the transformation of a dated family room and fireplace using low and zero-VOC products and the new Colonial Williamsburg Color Collection by Benjamin Moore.

“This project was a unique opportunity for us to demonstrate what is possible with the Colonial Williamsburg colors in an inspiring, unexpected way,” said Stacey Spear, co-owner of S&S Painting LLC. “Valerie (Abbott) and I were determined to transform this space visually while meeting the customer’s desire to use green products.” Throughout the process, S&S Painting partnered with Bryan Nuckols of Virginia Paint Company to discuss surface challenges and product options.

“When Valerie and Stacey came to us with their vision for this project, I thought it was a perfect example of how trend meets tradition with the Colonial Williamsburg Color Collection,” said Bryan Nuckols of Virginia Paint Company in Richmond.

“Our customer is thrilled with her space and we are very appreciative to the Middle Atlantic Council of PDCA for this recognition,” said Valerie Abbott, co-owner of S&S Painting LLC.
