Another Satisfied...

Received today from an extremely valued client, on a comprehensive refurbishment;

"Now that you have finished decorating my house, I must write to thank you for all your efforts.

I don't just mean your superb workmanship and meticulous attention to detail, to be honest after the recommendation I had of your skills from Hearnshaws I expected no less - what has impressed me most was your willingness to give your time and expertise about colours, textures and carpets, advising what will work and what will not.

I really have found your advise invaluable, taking a lot of strain out of the whole exercise.

My kitchen, you have totally transformed - no one can believe the units are painted. Everyone is convinced they are new doors. Another testament to your workmanship.

In short you have turned my nice house into an elegant home, for that my hearftfelt thanks.

Apart from all the above you were a joy to have around! No other decorator will be allowed into my home..."

Hall Revival

A tired hall, stairs and landing in Edgbaston, Birmingham, in desperate need of a considerable TLC. All walls were stripped of their original wall covering and horizontally lined in MAV Wallrock, then papered with Italian Classic wallpaper. Woodwork was treated to 2 coats of Permaglaze undercoat and 2 topcoats of Crown brilliant white gloss.

Ceilings were cross-lined and Anaglypta - Armadillo was applied.

Doors were prepared and treated to 2 coats of Permaglaze undercoat and 2 coats of Crown brilliant white gloss.

Carpets were replaced with Brinton. Including barley twist stair rods on stairs.

The finished result was extremely eye-catching, giving a very opulent impression.

Carpets supplied by Hearnshaws (Walsall) Ltd.

Kichen Facelift

Delivering a handcrafted, hand-painted effect at a fraction of the cost of a bespoke kitchen...

Following preparation, all wooden surfaces were treated to 2 coats of Zinnser's 1-2-3 primer, 1 coat of Permaglaze oil undercoat and then 3 final coats of Farrow & Ball oil based eggshell. Farrow & Ball full oil gloss was used for the kickboards. Giving the units the best possible chance of a long and beautiful life!!!
