A Whole World of Looks for Wood, Drywall, Plaster, and other Home Surfaces. Urban Revivals can transform a flat surface into a visual feast. Our techniques vary some simple color washing, to textural finishes, to the application of very specific glazes and specialty varnishes. Our techniques are based on brushwork, sponge use, metallic powders, solvent applications, graining, liming, and much more. Our work is preceded by preparatory steps, to ensure that your existing furniture and floors are well protected.
