Plaster projects

Over the years, Bailey Interiors undertook many notable projects and received many awards along the way:


  • Bailey's were commissioned to do the part restoration of the Josephs college chapel at Hunters Hill in Sydney. This job included the installation of arches and columns, ceiling vaults which had to be installed to match existing. Many things were achieved on this job, which presented challenges along the way which had to be solved by Bailey's in house casters and Bailey's very talented installation crew. The final casting of the intersection from two different radius vaults was a real challenge, but we were able to achieve what they call a pendentive which is a term used for the intersection of two separate radius arches and vaulted ceilings


  • Gardens on forest, a function centre at Peakhurst required a makeover to transform it into a more professional and up market entertainment and wedding reception venue. Bailey Interiors were called upon to use their expertise and experience in decorative plaster to reinvigorate the ceiling areas. Old ceiling coffers were demolished and replaced with a combination of bulkheads and double tiered Paddington cornice in 6 separate bays.
