We will definitely keep you in mind for any additional painting jobs. Thanks
Our customers wanted to move their kitchen cabinets from standard white to a
more interesting faux. We used an antique French glazing style.

I am enjoying the mantle you painted for me. Today it was just stunning! I came
home at about 1 pm and the sun was shining through the windows on to the natural
wood floor and the reflected light off the floor on to the mantle made the
mantle glow all on its own. First I was confused as to where the light was
coming from, it was as if someone put a spotlight on just the mantle. Nothing
else around it picked up the glow. Wow! I don’t know if that was part of your
plan in the painting, but what an amazing effect. Of course, the mantle always
looks great. In any light. You did a wonderful job. I am so glad I just turned
you lose and let you do your thing, because it came out perfect. It was so great
to be able to trust you and not have to supervise. I appreciate your quick
response to my anxiety at the end to get it finished. I have enjoyed it all
summer and looking forward to a cozy winter by the fireplace. Thanks again for
the great “show” you put on.

texture so we could see how it would actually look on our textured

our decision making process!), he ended up painting exactly the finished
look we were going for in our living room. "

laminate and ceramic countertops. A three-coat application creates a unique
textured appearance that transforms concrete floors and countertops into
beautiful design element.
I was new to Portland I had some difficulty knowing who to hire for the painting
of my newly purchased downtown Portland condo. My good fortune was finding A
Fresh Coat Painting and meeting Kurt Deppisch. I soon discovered that Kurt and
Paul, the owners of this painting business are not only painters, they are
artists. Kurt is willing to follow directions and he is eager to please but when
he is given the option of coming up with creative ideas the results have been
amazing. After the completion of painting the entire condo interior, with accent
colors, Kurt has used a trowel to create a concrete faux stone finish over the
balcony floors and he has trimmed both with decorative tile. It has been an
affordable and attractive change and everyone who sees them, offers compliments
and asks for his business card. This is a business that is dedicated to customer
satisfaction. I am presently planning to redecorate another condo and we have
already discussed new creative painting options." Janice Friedli

"Kurt spent hours prepping the walls, applying the plaster in coats, and then
burnishing the surface with a trowel to give it a textured appearance. The room
looks fantastic! "
"Kurt and Paul did the
Venetian plastering of
a long, cathedral-ceilinged wall running from our dining area through the living
room. They were punctual, stuck to the budget they quoted us, and took great
care with protecting the rugs and furniture. I liked the way they offered us
alternative ways of approaching the job and explained the choices clearly while
letting us make the final decisions. The results were beautiful, and I would
recommend them to anyone for this kind of wall treatment."
