Victoria’s Secret Lounge Floor Painting

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.

When the film crew and the Victoria Secret people came in the next day, they actually applauded when they saw the floor!
