What is a professional painter? Now there’s a question!
Neat and tidy or looking like a can of paint has exploded over them! In my mind the answer is simple, if the painter has paint all over them then chances are there’s paint all over your house, and not just the bits you wanted painted!
Surely if you want a neat and tidy paint job you employ the neat and tidy painter. It’s your house. Simple.
However, there is a bit more to it than that:
Unfortunately Painting is a career that most people think they can simple just do. I walked passed Bunnings once – therefore I’m a painter!
Qualifications and Experience really do matter, as in any business. You should always check on these things. Ask the questions.

“We are in motion, movement is all around us – a blur of colour, a subtle shift of light, a merge of shadows. Movement is social change, the rise of a nation, the protest of people, the progress of the digital age. The Dulux Colour Forecast – Colour Movement, explores how colour is moving around us, shifting and changing along with our world and all that is in it.”
Dulux as always provides lots of seasonal ideas, and gadgets to help. ‘MyColour Visualiser’ as great tool, just upload your picture and literally colour it in.

As weatherboard exterior painters, we never tire of painting weatherboards. Whilst they all look similar, no two are the same, they all have their own personalities, does this have something to do with the owner?
This weatherboard house was no exception to the rule. The rule being preparation and yet more preparation. Sanding, more sanding. Filling and gapping, sometimes we even get to paint!! Usually, with painting a weatherboard house, the preparation takes longer than the painting. Why? Because this is the ‘rule’!
How your home looks is a reflection of you. A well painted house, and well kept house, tells the world what you think of yourself. We paint many sorts and styles of weatherboard houses. From the classic and grown up weatherboard, with black painted front doors, to the cheerful cottage, with bright friendly colours. How do you see your weatherboard house painted? What will the paint colour scheme say about you? Are you as stylish as this weatheboard house owner?
A bright orange varnished ceiling, showing the dated look of the extension. Making the ceiling look as if it were just a metre or so above your head. Well something has to be done! Lime washing. What would we as Interior House Painters do?
The customers originally wanted the ceiling painted white, however this would mean every crack inbetween the panels would show. We recommended painting a white wash or a lime wash to calm down the wooden panels instead and the customers were happy to go with this.
One of our problems was, we had was the wooden panels. Which were originally varnished with an oiled based varnish. That means we had to apply an oil based product too, because oil and water don’t mix. White wash and Lime Wash usually are acylic (water-based)! Taking advice from the PaintSpot paintshop, we used a ‘lime wash’ formula and tinted up an oil based varnish.
Random is very hard to achive. We have to apply the varnish evenly, and because it’s varnish we have to apply it by brush and not by roller. Using a roller would even out the lime wash into a opaque liquid, which is not a good look anyway. So we brushed this ceiling by hand, three times!
