A great house and a great exterior painting project in Albert Park. Years of needing a bit more love and attention showed. Peeling paint and repares left this house looking damaged and unwanted.

Permit for the electricity cables, permit for the street/pavement access and permit to used the street/pavement. Along with street diagrams/site maps. A lot of paperwork for us Albert Park House Painters.

Yes, we were the interior house painters too! The blue trim caused us many problems, due to it’s dark shade. As a result we just undercoated it three times! Normally, In contract, we undercoat all the trim just once.

Kensington Wallpaper Hanging
Our Colour Consultant and the customer finally came to a bold choice of wallpaper for a bathroom. It did take a little discussion here and there to agree! Nobody can say it’s an understated, or a vanilla choice.
The Wallpaper Installation
Whilst just a small room, it was full of difficult tasks. The bulkhead, power sockets, handrails, door furniture and even hanging wallpaper on a door.
We had to undercoat everything with Taubmans 3 in 1. This produces a sealed, chemically even surface, so we can hang wallpaper on it.
The wallpaper itself was over 1 metre in width and had to be pasted in a different room, so even walking through the doorway proved difficult.
The first drop, behind the doorway, was easy, but the other six drops proved to be anything but easy.
Wallpaper and Materials Used:
- Wild Thing – Flavor Paper
“Say goodbye to long, bumpy plane rides and instead bring the tropical vacation straight to your home with Wild Thing. Our latest collaboration with Ghislane Viñas.”

Interior House Painters Yarraville
Sometimes it’s great to paint new builds, and sometimes not. It really makes a difference when you’re working with a good builder. Planning is key to everything for a great paint job, especially when you are working around other trades. This job was well planned, so it went smoothly and on time.
The customer had already decided the colour scheme. And with a clear remit our job was easy.
With these important aspects taken care of, these are the painting jobs interior painters dream of.

Painted Black Doors
We had quite a challenge with the black painted doors, they were originally painted Low Sheen. Which looks great, however it is very easy to mark and damage. Due to a few kids in the family we had to come up with another plan.
So we suggested a semi gloss enamel, because gloss tends to look like a leather jacket from the 1970s. It worked a treat. And as so, it really complimented the black door furniture.
Kew exterior house painters
Sterling House Painters have been painting this lovely house in Kew over the winter. A lot of preparation and scaffold has been needed, due to the hard to reach places.
Because of the textured rendered exterior we used Weathershield Masonry Matt, instead of the normal Low Sheen. It gives a calmed down cool stone effect.
Paints and Paint Colours Used:
- Dulux Weathershield Masonry Matt – Flooded Gum
- Dulux Weathershield Masonry Matt – Antque White USA
- Dulux Weathershield Gloss – Antique White USA
Exterior House Painters, in the Winter
Does exterior house painting in the winter cause the painters problems? Well, unfortunately it does, but only for the painters!
As you know, Melbourne has at least 4 seasons in one day. So just by weighing up the weather reports, our experience and seeing what it’s actually doing, we, Kew exterior house painters, can usualy paint.
And because it’s cooler, it’s better to paint. Cooler means the paint get’s to dry naturally at an ambient temperature. The paint is easier to apply, and so we end up with a better finish.
