We have included some photos showing painting work we have completed in Kensington and the local area.


We received a 2023 painting award for this fabulous home we painted in Northcote, very close to Kensington. The rear of the house is a modern extension and the front original. Apart from the usual preparation of sanding, filling and gapping we also washed and sanded alot of oiled timber and brought it back to life using Sikkens Cetol HLS. Much of the timber was black or very weathered and we had to wash multiple times and sand prior to recoating. For more information on this project please click here to see our project page.

We received this 2022 painting award for the painting of this beautiful heritage home in Altona.  We have included a before and after shot for you. The significant preparation and painting together with the new modern colour scheme have really lifted this home from heavy and dark (see below) to light and airy. We completed substantial preparation including stripping of some paint and oil undercoated alot of the timber prior to painting.

This photo is of the Melbourne Athenaeum in the Melbourne CBD. This is a true heritage building – it was built in the early to mid 1800’s. It was complex to paint as we needed to clean the building first and scrape back unstable paint before we could even think about painting. There was a lot of detailing involved with the ornate features and the picking out of the second colour. The building has been transformed and looks fabulous now. You may have noticed the “Painting Award for Excellence” logo at the top of this page. We received this for the preparation and painting of this building. Please click here to view our project page

The above 2 shots are from a unit we painted in Kensington where the client wanted to brighten the dull white colour scheme. The result is amazing and our client is so happy.

These two photos are of a modern townhouse typical of many in Kensington. We painted both the interior and exterior of this townhouse in between tenants to allow the property to be re-leased. We painted the exterior from ladders and a boom. We organised a carpenter to replace rotten timber on the window surrounds prior to painting. We painted everything inside including ceilings, walls and woodwork including banister and balustrades.

This photo is of a an exterior home we painted in Brunswick, similar to many in Kensington. We have painted many weatherboard homes in Kensington and throughout Melbourne. When we paint these homes we usually pressure wash, fill, gap and sand prior to painting.

This  photo is from a stunning house we painted in Moonee Ponds. We painted many of the ceilings and walls throughout and touched up the exterior prior to sale.

This photo is from a house we painted in Flemington. The house is a period style home in some areas with modern renovated areas towards the rear and upstairs.

This photo is from a home we painted in Yarraville. It is timber and hadn’t been painted for many years so required significant preparation. This has been transformed from a tired off-white colour to fabulous charcoal and white colour scheme.

Kensington is an inner city suburb in Melbourne located 4kms north-west of the CBD. It is part of the City of Melbourne and has a population of 9,000.

Kensington was named after Kensington in London.

Kensington was once home to one of Victoria’s main abbatoirs and livestock saleyards, as well as an army ordnance depot. Due to urban renewal in the suburb Kensington is now primarily a residential suburb.
