Painter recommendation

By 10 February 2014 10

We have a wall of new built-in bookcases which, after my well-meaning but amateurish start, now need the professional touch so that they match the woodwork in our new house.  So we need a fastidious professional painter who does small jobs willingly.  Any suggestions?

Good service, good price and a nice young guy to boot

I recommend Richard Murfet –

I’ve used him twice. Semi-retired so he may or may not be available. Takes his work seriously. A good man.

After a bad experience with an alleged “painter” I had Adrian from Azzika Painting re-do my Cedar frames. He was punctual, transparent about job detail, and delivered a quality finish. Not sure if he does small jobs, but no harm in asking. 0424836575.

Thanks for the quick response – RiotACT has lived up to the plug given to it by eldest daughter.

Is her name Dorothy by any chance?

No Holden Caulfied, not Dorothy.
Richard not available for six weeks, so if you can wait, then his busyness is a good sign. I can’t so I’m currently waiting for Gabriel to visit.
Thanks for the later recommendations.

“after my well-meaning but amateurish start”

haha, I know /exactly/ how you feel…been there, done that! They make it look so easy on TV…then all of a sudden you have a mess :)

The recommendation of #1. BelcoMan, is now supported by well-painted bookcases and a bank balance reduced by a not unreasonable sum.

Do *not* call Glendinning Painting. I absolutely *loathe* their ads on 2CC.
