Paint the Pearl: 228 West Second Street

MUSCATINE, Iowa–This beautiful building is another example of art. It was originally called the Chas Mull Grocery, built in 1895. We examined old pictures of the building to restore it. Also, on the outside, we used original wood, dark blue, white, and 24 carat gold accents! I also learned how to stain old brick to make it look new!

I learned a lot and really enjoyed this project. A special thanks to Dr. Brad Bark for the opportunity to work on such a beautiful building!
