right colors for your walls, can be a challenging and intimidating
process. We will be happy to sit down with you and help put
you at ease. Here are the things that we take into
consideration: lighting in the room, furniture and accessories,
adjoining room color, color balance & flow, style, taste, and budget.
You do not need to hire us to do the painting- keep your painter.
But it will be worth it having someone come in (a second set of eyes) to
lead you in a direction and tie the room together. The charge is
$50 per room and $25 for each additional room.

Faux Finish Consultation
Decorative Painter, Dawn Papandrea-Khan, will meet with you to discuss
the many options for faux finishes, paint color, and design. The
fee is $50. During this meeting, if we have not already, we
will inform you of the cost estimate of the job you are requesting.
A consultation can take between up to 2 hours depending on how many rooms.
Decorative Painter, Dawn Papandrea-Khan will gather all the information in order to
work on the preliminary design and research for the desired mural.
On average it takes 2-3 hours in order to plan and design a hand painted
mural. The consultation / design fee will be $50. This will include any internet
research, rough drawings (if necessary), and the on-site meeting.
During this meeting, if we have not already, we will inform you of the
cost estimate of the mural you are requesting. There will be an
extra charge if detailed drawings or paintings on canvas are desired.
If you are
choosing to do a faux or plaster finish, doing a sample is a must.
When choosing color, it is difficult to know for sure, how it will
actually turn out on the surface of whatever you are painting. A
Faux Finish is NOT a straight paint color. We use various colors
and glazes in order to achieve the desired finish. Each sample
provided is approximately 16" x 16". The cost per sample is $50,
plus the cost of the paint. Usually, the paint can come up to $12
per quart, unless the colors are available in smaller sample containers.
The sample & sample formula will be kept
by Surfaces with Paint once the job is complete. These will not be given out to anyone
under any circumstances.
Our price is
based on many factors. The basic break down is hours, materials,
and travel expenses. We also figure in a small percentage of our
monthly business expenses. We will quote you an estimated price during
the consultation. This price is not "set in stone". It is
subject to change. Keep in mind that a Faux Finish can be almost
triple or even quadruple the price of a straight painting job, because
so much more goes into it.
We base our pricing
on many factors, some include:
cost of materials, intricacy of design, and working conditions.
