Thornbury gets a white wash

A new kitchen with some ply feature paneling gets a softer look with some white wash applications.

All the panels Were cut and rolled with a 4 mm microfiber roller and then layed off with the grain with a brush to create a Hand brushed look. Quite a tEchnical and labour intensive finish

PREPARING all the walls and woodwork proper is critical for the best outcome possible. After filling walls and woodwork we mark the spots with tape so we dont miss any with the undercoat.

Big changes in Bentleigh

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.

Always AMAZING to work with great clients thanks to ISSABELL & andrew.

New products New job

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

Are windows as protected as they should be.

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.  

IMG_5972.JPG

These windows and door are brand new and getting a good couple of coats of gloss marine grade varnish. 

 

SAMPLES oh the samples

Creating samples for our clients

IMG_5962.JPG

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.

Parkdale gem

This was a big project for us at MWP

Was a great job to takle with lots of different elements to work on. 

Jon Webb and his apprentice Hash were wonderful to work with over the duration of the job. These guys are master craftsman. Highly recommend

All the windows, doors, architraves, skirting was oiled in Livos exterior wood oil. 

All the inside ceiling & walls were painted in Resene Zero Voc 

Exterior weatherboards, fascias and  eaves we used all Taubmans Endure exterior Low-sheen & semi-gloss  as well as the Livos exterior oil on all the windows, architraves & doors. 

The floors were also done in Livos interior flooring oil. 

Big thanks to my guys for a fantastic effort.
