We have provided some photos of painting we have undertaken in the Northcote area to give you an indication of the breadth of painting we do.

We received a 2023 painting award for this fabulous home we painted in Northcote. The rear of the house is a modern extension and the front an original heritage home. 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 the above 2022 painting award for the painting of this fabulous 2-storey home in Kew. Substantial preparation was required as well as scaffolding for the 2nd-storey and organising of the power company to cover the power line. For more information on this please click here to see our project page.

The above photos are from a new home we painted in Alphington which is only 4kms from Northcote. We painted both the interior and exterior of the gorgeous property and were awarded Winner of our category for the project by Master Painters Assn in 2018. For more photos of this and some of our other projects please click here.


These are before and after shots of a period home we painted in Northcote. The house was in poor condition and we completed significant preparation including oil undercoating weatherboards to deal with old lead paint. The new bold colour scheme has really lifted and modernised this home and we think it looks fabulous.

These 2 photos are from a substantial heritage home we painted in East Melbourne. We painted both inside and outside and completed the usual preparation of sanding, gapping and filling. Inside there is alot of ornate plasterwork and woodwork and the woodwork was painted in gloss enamel meaning we had to take more care with our preparation as defects would be more noticeable.

These 3 photos above are from a house we painted in Brunswick that had a rear extension and a 2nd-storey addition. It’s a beautiful heritage home that has now been updated. There are more photos of this property on our portfolio pages

This photo is of Brunswick South West Primary School. This is a large school we painted during summer school holidays. We undertook extensive preparation on the timber work, particularly the windows and organized for a carpenter to replace rotten timber. We used booms to access the high areas of this building.For more information about this project please watch our video here.

The final photo is of a stunning period home in Clifton Hill. We undertook significant preparation with this home stripping paint where required and working with other trades who were replacing timber and gutters. We used scaffolding to access the high areas.

If I hear ANYONE say they’re painting, I’ll send them to you!

“Jay was outstanding. The work was done by Bud and Belinda was great and clearly Jay had his eye on the whole thing. He showed up when he said he would and did what he said he would- and vacuumed! If I hear ANYONE say they’re painting, I’ll send them to you.”

“We were very impressed with both the quality of the work and the communication throughout the painting process.”

 They worked long hard days with good hearts!

“The girls were so pleasant, they did a wonderful job transforming a dreary tired looking old house to a bright clean home. They worked long hard days with good hearts and achieved the impossible in the short time they had to do the work.”

C. McColl, Northcote

I’m very happy!

“The work was done promptly and thoroughly and Women at Work went to some length to accommodate the
on-site access restrictions (and deal with my dogs). Your painter was careful to ask me questions and keep me informed. She dealt really well with the bad timber she found. Overall I’m very happy with the result.”

J. Zobel, Northcote
