aims to be a one stop resource for all aspects of

 painting & decorating its procedures and associated products.

This site is designed for painters and decorators of all abilities.


I have run a very successful Painting and Decorating business for over twenty years within my local community, focusing entirely on the private domestic market. Referrals from my clients form the foundations of my extensive customer network. Their individual recommendations, my professionalism, and my knowledge of decorative processes and materials, along with the high standard of decorative finish that I achieve have all contributed to my continuing success.

I have qualifications in City and Guilds and Advanced City and Guilds achieving two credits and a distinction grade in the latter.  I have accumulated over thirty years of experience in many aspects of painting and decorating, covering the industrial sector, light commercial and domestic environments.

The motivation behind this website is to extend a helping hand to those people who wish to undertake painting and decorating work in their own homes, and who might lack the necessary knowledge, or be in some way uncertain about process, technique and decorative materials and their uses.   

his website is an ongoing project, and I will endeavour to add new subject pages as and when I can.

The advice given on this blog on the decorative processes and material options is of an advisory nature; they are not instructions but rather guidelines to assist you improve the painting and decorating techniques and finishes.   It is the responsibility of the reader ascertain whether the information provided is appropriate for them, and that they are sufficiently skilled, to carry out the tasks described in a safe and proper manner.

Reviews on this site are of products which I find to be of the highest standard and would therefore recommend their use.   I will not post negative reviews however I will highlight product limitations and characteristics which I feel are important and worth expressing.
