Lime washing the Seventies. Essendon

Limed Washed Ceiling

Lime Washing Over Another Decade

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!
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 the problems we had was the wooden panels were originally varnished with an oiled based varnish, which means we had to apply an oil based product too. 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.

Customer Quote:

“Chris was great to work with again! Nothing was too much trouble, including repainting the lounge room twice when I changed my mind about the colour. What I’m most impressed with though is the quality of the job that Chris does – his attention to detail is fantastic. I’m a repeat customer and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Sterling Painters.”
