Painting Kitchen Cabinets – What to Expect

A fresh coat of paint transforms an existing space like little else. In the kitchen, cabinets are the de facto walls and need just as much attention as any other wall. New paint – either in the cabinets’ existing color or in an all-new hue – will bring life and energy to a room that gets much attention, and H.J. Holtz & Son’s experienced team knows how to tackle the job.

Congregation Beth Ahabah Restoration

Historic Restoration of a Sanctuary: Congregation Beth Ahabah

Everyone knew it was a big job. Congregation Beth Ahabah’s mural was given in 1913 by the Ladies’ Auxiliary and is the focal point of the synagogue’s formal sanctuary. Spanning 30 feet end to end and reaching a height of 50 feet at its apex, the proscenium arch had cracked plaster, and faded and dirty paint. It needed repairs and repainting – a full restoration. In eight weeks’ time.

See the remarkable video and pictures of the restoration.

Star Wars Space Ship View Mural

“Star Wars” Movies Inspire Bedroom Project

It’s a bedroom dream come true. Janet Deskevich’s younger daughter became a “Star Wars” fan after a day-long viewing marathon, a reward for the displacement that occurred when the family’s residence was featured on 2016 Historic Garden Week house tours. “After three days of ‘Don’t touch anything!’ chaos, we spent one day completely vegged out and did nothing but watch [the movies] from start to finish: a nonstop “Star Wars” marathon,” Deskevich says. “She thought it was the coolest thing ever.”  And a project was born.
Bolling Haxall Foyer

Bolling Haxall House Makeover

Sometimes, even a classic space needs an update. Such was the case for the historic Bolling Haxall House at the corner of East Franklin and North Third streets. Home to The Woman’s Club, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educational opportunities for women, the 1858 Italianate mansion serves as the base for the club’s monthly gatherings as well as numerous other special events, including wedding receptions, Junior Assembly Cotillion dances, and even a recent episode of the ABC series “The Bachelorette.”

Caring for a Classic – Frank Lloyd Wright House in Virginia Beach
