A few recent faux finish projects:

"You did an excellent job, everything is perfect, its the exact color we were looking for. We will definitely keep you in mind for any additional painting jobs. Thanks George Radulesk"

Our customers wanted to move their kitchen cabinets from standard white to a more interesting faux. We used an antique French glazing style.

I wanted to tell you again how much 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.

We have even restored a number of old faux finishes. It requires a good bit of process and art to find a match good enough to touch up a faux finish, but it can be done.

Repair of a 20 year old faux finish in the historic Portland police building.

Our customer, a partner in a great Portland law firm, had one of the walls in his office devastated by water damage. He was afraid he'd seen the last of his beautifully faux finished wall and would have to live with one wall different or repaint everything. We took pieces of the wall back to the studio with us and recreated technique, color, and style to match the original finish. Once we had re-engineered the old finish, applying it seemed easy. 

" We had small sample cans of the colors we wanted in that room and with those he prepared a few sample boards in various ragging/sponging/etc., techniques, which he had even sprayed with texture so we could see how it would actually look on our textured walls. Between those and some further discussion about what we liked or disliked about certain looks (through which Paul was very patient with our decision making process!), he ended up painting exactly the finished look we were going for in our living room.

Metallic Paints and Finishes

It was a pleasure working with you and your personable crew.   They were on time, enthusiastic, accommodating, professional and SOOO tidy (greatly appreciated!)   The paint job was challenging with all the delicate specialty paints and I am thrilled with the results.   I look forward to working with you on “phase two” in my home.   

Thank you again,

At the Columbia Edgewater country club, we replaced drywall on their 30 foot ceiling, painted the entire lobby and finished it off with a dazzling metallic ceiling paint.

"Because 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."

Venetian Plasters

Venetian plaster is an ancient art medium that has been perfected and used over the centuries. It is used in a surprising variety of ways. It often gives the impression of stone, great age, or any number of natural materials. We use a variety of techniques and styles. With even one color Venetian gives a depth of hues and shades. We can use additional colors, stenciling, and texture patterns to create beautiful effects. We work with you find colors and techniques to fit your style, needs and desires.

Venetian plaster, or Venetian stucco, has been used for centuries around the world, in homes and offices, on architectural masterpieces and in everyday buildings. Architects and interior designers, home-owners and artists, all have marveled at the distinctive beauty of this highly popular form of wall surfacing, and throughout the ages the artisans who were skilled at creating such beauty have been revered and sought after.
