More Porch Painting in Chicago

I repaired this front porch and repainted the steps, porch and doorway to match the façade of the house. This one small project (finished in a day or two) is a great way to brighten up your house’s curb appeal.

One small repair and a couple coats of paint later, and this house looks 100% better! If you are selling your home or are looking for an easy way to quickly improve your curb appeal, this could be the perfect project for you to take on.

Your entryway is the first thing a potential buyer will see and first impressions set the tone for the rest of the house. With many houses on the market, a clean, well-kept front entryway will attract buyers to check out the rest of your house. On the other hand, an entryway that is an eyesore in need of repair can turn many people away.

Porch Painting in Chicago

It’s amazing what one little coat of paint can do! Take a look below to see how we renewed the front of this Chicago house with a fresh coat of paint for their front porch. The transformation is quite remarkable! We also painted the wrought iron fence for a completely finished look for their front.

Trying to sell your home? Increase your curb appeal dramatically with a new coat of paint in key areas such as the front porch or entranceway. Call to schedule your free painting estimate!

If you’re concerned about which color to use, we offer free color consultations with every painting contract. For this home, we were able to match the color of the porch with the siding of the house.

We installed a flowering vine on wood lattice as a decorative privacy screen for the deck and carried this same design element over to the garage in the back.

Painting, Tile Backsplash & Light Installation: Chicago Condo near LSD

They’re here! We painted almost the entire interior of this condo just before the holidays and the results are fantastic. We are so excited to share these pictures with you. Visit our Facebook page to see all of the “before” pictures too!

In addition to painting, we also painted the upper kitchen cabinets, installed a new tile backsplash, installed new light fixtures in the living room and varnished and installed a wooden shelf in the hallway. Scroll through the pictures below for more details.

We installed new light fixtures to replace the outdated fixtures in the living room.

We painted the bathroom walls and ceiling the same light color to make this small bathroom feel a little bigger.

The bright white tile against the dark granite countertops offers great contrast and really brightens up the space. We used a special cabinet paint made by Benjamin Moore to achieve a factory finished look without the use of spray paint.

We varnished and installed an oak shelf in their hallway. The light wood was chosen to complement the light wood inset in their floor.

Painting in Chicago

We just finished painting this condo in Chicago not too long ago. The client wanted to keep most of the walls neutral but we did add an olive green accent wall in the kitchen. We think it adds just the right amount of color and interest to the kitchen while also bringing in some of the tones from the connecting living room. What do you think?

Call 773-517-1198 to schedule your FREE painting estimate! Every painting contract comes with a free color consultation where I will help you find the colors you are looking for – to compliment the rest of your décor or advise you on what the paint will look like once it’s dry. Quite a few of my clients have found this to be very helpful.

It’s not too early to schedule a landscape design estimate either. Especially since we haven’t gotten much snow this winter, we can take a look in your yard, talk about what you’re looking for and I can put together a design that will be ready to be implemented once the warmer months arrive. If you know you want a new landscape design in the spring, I highly recommend scheduling an estimate now before things start to get busy and my schedule starts to fill up. Call 773-517-1198 or e-mail me to set up your FREE appointment!

Check out the winter issue of Faerie Magazine to see an article on my Repurposed Christmas Tree Lady – a great way to reuse your Christmas tree after the holidays. It is such an honor to be featured in this beautiful magazine once again.

Don’t forget to schedule a free painting estimate and/or landscape design estimate before the busy spring season starts back up. Estimates are always free and painting contracts come with a free color consultation. It can be tricky figuring out what different shades will look like once they’re dry, but I have helped many clients find just the right hue they wanted. Call 773-517-1198 or e-mail me to set up an appointment!
