Trump National Golf Club, Los Angeles
The Grand Ballroom of Trump National is over 6000 sq. ft. with ceiling heights over 12 feet. The room features views of the Pacific Ocean and picturesque Catalina Island. The Ballroom, with seating for over 300 guests for wedding, banquets, and charity gala events, is adorned with a stately, hand-carved limestone fireplace and impressive French doors.
The Club contacted JS Custom Paint and Wall Covering after a number of contractors turned down the project because it was either too big or they did not provide both painting AND wall covering services. When they approached JSPCW, Jim said, "This is the kind of large project where I learned this business."
The job demanded first class quality work! Along with the room being large, there were a number of special requirements that needed to be fulfilled. Every light fixture had to be removed, all fire sprinklers had to be covered, numerous repairs to the ceiling had to be preformed due to years of unqualified maintenance and repairs. All 6 of the pure crystal chandlers had to be in a cocoon to protect them from dust, damage and overspray. Absolutely nothing could get on those chandlers.
“There were so many custom calls, I lost count.” All doors, windows, casings and baseboards in the entire ballroom had to be sanded then oil base primed with 3 coats of finish paint to get the rich look required. All brass had to be remove from all the doors, primed twice and the finish coats consisted of 3 coats, sanding each in between, then clean and polish all brass before being reinstalled. The wall coverings were quite a challenge since no seems were allowed. Each strip of wall covering had to be double cut to eliminate any seams. JSCPW worked from 5am to 10pm many nights in order to finish the project on time. “It was quite a challenge! We completed on time with one day to spare. We brought that ballroom right out of the 80's well into 2025 and it came out absolutely beautiful!”
