Set designer / decorator Lynn Nigro asked me to do a scenic paint job for her client Victoria’s Secret.
2,000 Square feet of plain pine planks had to be transformed into a warm brown floor that looked aged. At Lynn’s studio I custom mixed a stain color and painted the planks individually, one at a time, assisted by several other painters.
Transported to Gary’s Loft in midtown Manhattan, 500 individual planks were laid down to form a floor.
I added some extra effects to make sure the floor achieved its aged & distressed look.
Furniture for the shoot was brought in.
Drapes were being installed.
Lynn’s crew brought in more furniture, while I took care of some touch-ups.
The set is being dressed. Lynn Nigro is on the left.
When the film crew and the Victoria Secret people came in the next day, they actually applauded when they saw the floor!
Soon to be seen in a VS video or catalog…..
