Case Study: Prep and Paint the Barn Door at Elizabeth Chambers Cellar

One of the greatest things about living and working in the Willamette Valley is appreciating the wonderful local wineries. The Smith and Company Painting team recently had the opportunity to spruce up the interior of Elizabeth Chambers Cellars here in McMinnville, Oregon. If you’ve ever visited the winery (and if you haven’t, you really should), you’ve probably noticed the huge barn doors inside it. Our team’s task was to prep and paint the barn door.

Though the barn door was old, it was still in fairly good shape when we started. It had been white for many years and the winery owners decided to go for a drastic change. In just a few days, we were to prep and paint the barn door blue using Sherwin Williams Solo Glass. Of course, this was after we masked and covered everything that wasn’t going to be painted. This kept the barrels of wine and equipment paint and dust free!

This barn door project went off without a hitch on our end. We noticed that the small door, where people actually walked through, was badly damaged. This was probably due to the barn door’s age. Because of this, the winery owners replaced it.

The end result was stunning and certainly made a statement. Take a look for yourself with the before and after pictures below.
