Green Plum Design House Painting

Hi All,

Spring is sprung, the daffs are out and the days are getting longer…


It feels so very good to be writing a new blog again- it has been a patchy affair in recent years and on this fine day in March, I am here to let you know what has kept me sooo busy…

After working for so long helping people choose colors for their homes and project managing re-models, I decided I needed to take charge, get my own contractors license and run my very own House Painting company –  rolling the color consultancy and painting into one glorious package -Green Plum Design House Painting!

I have been working as a painting contractor for over a year now and know more about lead paint and sanding techniques than I will ever need to know…

I was the only woman in my contractors license exam and again in my lead certification course – there must be other women contractors out there but I have yet to meet them.

THE most important thing is that I have an incredible crew of painters who all have years and years of experience and to whom I daily take my hat off to for their fabulous hard work, diligence and creativity.  They are all a—mazing.

Here’s a little glimpse of some of the work we have done over the last year…

This gorgeous house with the lovely clapboard siding took quite some sanding..

but blossomed so beautifully for all the careful prep work.


Here’s is another beautiful home with painted shingles that came up so well…



And of course stucco – a surface I am appreciating a little more these days as it stands up so well over time…



One of the things that I  love about this new direction in my work is that I get to see this one week…






And a couple of weeks later…a whole new place…


Yes, there was power washing, sanding, patching, filling, more sanding, priming, and finally painting somewhere in the middle but what a beautiful transformation to witness in a fortnight.

And for me, all the little details…


and final touches…


and painted hinges…

IMG_0474and mailboxes…

IMG_2146are just as important as the bigger restoration work and painting.  Those all important finishing touches.

So now you know.

If you need to get your house or office painted,  look no further.

And that is what has been filling my days for quite some time…

Up to my eyeballs in painters tape, HEPA vacuums, primer and beautiful, thick, gloopy paint in colors I could get lost in…

Back soon with more transformations.
