FR Review:
When it comes to faux finishes, especially gold leaf, we hear “see”-ing is believing. For the last 15 years, Sandra Spannan of See. Painting has quietly established a strong reputation for providing “superior quality” decorative painting services to Gotham, including murals, trompe l’oeil, Venetian plaster, restoration work, as well as a variety of faux finishes. Spannan’s artistic career began in Germany where she studied art history and graphic design, painting for herself on the side. She expanded her repertoire further while attending the Academy of New York for classical painting and the Society of Gilders. Since then, Spannan has received the Sepp Leaf Price 2006 award for her gilding and gold-leaf work, which we hear is “something to behold.” See. has also received the 2014 Lucy G. Moses award for Excellence in Historic Preservation, the 2014 New York Preservation League’s Excellence in Preservation Award, as well as the national Tony Goldman Award.

Sources say that Spannan and her team are as “charming and talented as they are exacting and professional.” The majority of See. Painting’s work is residential with isolated commercial or restoration projects popping up along the way. Taking on two to three jobs at a time, See. Painting keeps itself “comfortably busy.” Jobs typically consist of two to three rooms and take about a month, but they will take on one-day jobs occasionally. Fees are said to be “well within reason for the quality” and Spannan provides each client with a detailed estimate that includes samples, labor and touch-ups. Single day jobs carry, a $500 minimum.

“On-time, on-budget and without sacrificing superior quality” keep a steady stream of happy clients rushing to See.
