This door is going to be bright orange when I’m finished. But first a whole lot of prep to get this one ready. Using the Festool sander and vac it’s easy work to get a great finish and keep your job tidy. Fill and gap up any dents and cracks. Then 3 coast of smart prime with sanding in between. And where almost ready for some colour. Stay tuned …
A new kitchen with some ply feature paneling gets a softer look with some white wash applications.
We were lucky to start with a clean slate. Fresh solid plastered walls. Newly renovated windows. All original skirting, doors and architraves to keep its authentic charm. Scroll down for progress shots
New look for an old classic. It’s all in the detail.
you may not notice from this photo but a lot of the feature brick work is in a slightly darker grey. Not a massive contrast but just enough to break up the wall areas around the house. There were a lot of different textures to contend with on this home. And with a few colours predetermined by the new renovation at the rear. We had a task to bring them all together to create new look.
For a small place this one packs a lot of punch
Oiled timbers, felt paneling on walls, timber ceilings, beautiful joinery, red brick flooring, hand made basins.
Just a simple colour palette to let all the details do the talking

On this new job a single fronted terrace in fitzroy I was lucky enough to try a new product on this hoop pine veneer paneling.
The application was 2 coats of Whittles wax Evolution satin. The Evolution was very easy to use. We had to put in an additive to make sure that the oil / wax dried out as it has been too cold for it to cure.
Ceiling and feature timber panels also oiled
Heading into winter the exterior of our home can get some of the harshest treatment. Damp wet winters are harsh on raw timber that’s left untreated.
Making sure your windows are cleaned regularly and the exterior coatings are up to scratch. Replacement of windows is an expensive cost and one that can be avoided with a little care and maintenance.
These windows and door are brand new and getting a good couple of coats of gloss marine grade varnish.
Creating samples for our clients
There are a billion different colour choices when it comes to painting your home. So our job is to make that choice a little easier for our clients.
By providing some decent sized samples that can be left with our clients. They have the opportunity to see them in all different times of the day and different rooms.
Colours will always look different in shady and lighter spots in your house
We’ll make sure that your happy and that the room / home is going to look the best it can look every time.
