25 Grant Street, Brighton East

May 27, 2014

This home was recently purchased by a young family with a little 2 year old girl. Looking for more space after selling their renovated single fronted Victorian in Balaclava, they found this five bedroom home in Grant Street. We were contracted the paint the whole interior and exterior. Below are a couple of photos of both the interior and exterior before painting started.

The previous owners hadn’t painted in years and the house colors seemed very outdated. Clearly it was in need of some fresh, contemporary colors. The job took a total of six weeks for four painters.

More and more clients are choosing to finish their woodwork in #AquaEnamel (aka water based enamel paints). From an applicator POV, they are easy to apply, quick drying and little or no #VOC’s. From a client’s perspective, they can live in their #homes comfortably without fumes and the paint does not ‘yellow’ like conventional oil based enamels.
