Frequently Asked Questions

Can My Kitchen Cabinets Be Refinished?
The quick answer to this is Yes; whether or not it lasts leads to a completely different answer. Like anything if the foundation (cabinet material and structure) is good then the answer is yes they can be refinished and if the application and the correct process is used they will last also.

Jim and his crew do exceptional work! The first time he did work in my home, he painted my laundry room cabinets. It's... been about 8 years now and they still look perfect! Recently, we had him back to paint our stairway spindles, upstairs trim, and bedroom doors. What a difference! And it was NOT an easy job! Everyone was professional and friendly and I will definitely be calling him again for our next more

I was looking for a painting company to do a few jobs in my home. I happen to see their van driving around in the area... where I live and thought I would give them a call. I got in touch with someone right a way and they came out to give and estimate within the next few days. I was pleased with the pricing and hired the company.The crew that came to the home to do the work were the nicest people and did such an amazing job! They painted our cabinets that were original from the time we built the house. It completely transformed our kitchen! The quality of work was exceptional! We also had many rooms painted which the painter Brian was also exceptional. This crew really knows what they are doing and is very detail oriented. The whole experience exceeded my expectations and we will always use this company for all our future projects! Thank you to everyone at fresh color and design. We appreciate all that you did for us!read more

We were very impressed with the quality and speed that our painting job was completed with. With 9 ceilings two... hallways a stairway a foyer and a large kitchen. There were four different colors and more cut lines than I think the crew bargained for. The painters were very attentive to our needs and respected our home and every thing that needed to be moved or covered. The house has never looked better. We are very happy with the job they did and we will recommend them to anyone we hear about that needs some painting done. I know that when we need some painting done they will be the first more

Jim and his team (Chris, Brian, Victor, and Miguel) did an amazing job on our kitchen. The whole team was friendly,... professional, detail oriented, and so easy to work with.They painted our cabinets and ceiling, added slow door closers, put up trim moulding, installed slide out shelves and replaced our old tile backsplash. We feel like we have a brand new kitchen! In fact we loved how our kitchen turned out so much, we immediately had them return and do some trim/casing work in our foyer. If we have future projects needed to be done, we will definitely hire Jim and his crew again. Thanks so much Jim and the guys!!read more

Jim and his crew did an amazing job refinishing my kitchen cabinets that are builder-grade, oak stain wood. Early... discussions with Jim introduced me to a professional grade, Italian Milesi coating. I researched his recommendation with much online documentation and YouTube videos to support the quality finish I would receive and ultimately did. He also suggested soft-close hinges which we did use. Lastly, they added a crown molding at the top never there before. Quality workmanship was met far exceeding my expectations. Great job team! I enjoyed having you in my home for the more
