    Hey fellow owners,

    My most excellent interior painter got fed up with the storms and moved back to Michigan (I think for college football season and the parties :cool: ). I am in need of a recommendation on a good, reliable interior house painter to do some touch up on our house in the Eastern Lake area of Seagrove Beach. Anyone care to offer up a recommendation?

    Any help would be awesome and appreciated. :clap_1: :clap_1:

    In one of my posts, Donna, another poster, recommended Mickey Hollman (850) 838-0778. She said he lives in the Grayton area, is reliable, and cleans up after himself. That sounds like a pretty good painter to me!

    Yes, Mickey has done interior painting for our house, which is a challenging interior, very high atrium and other ceilings. He's not inexpensive, but seems competitive. He's a local guy, who does a very good job. We couldn't have been more pleased with his work. He's also a very nice person, which counts for a lot. He has done a lot of work for the Rivard houses, so you may want to call Debra @ Rivard (850)231-4446 for a reference. I think you'll be pleased.

    Donna,

    I remember your earlier post but did a search and looked and could not find it. I knew I could rely on a reference from one of my SoWal neighbors. If he is good enough for you and you were pleased, I know we will be too. :clap_1:

    Thanks. :clap_1: :clap_1:

    Would either of you know a good plumber or plasterer? Thanks.

    A guy named Collin McCormick did our house both interior and exterior in Seaside, new construction and did a beautiful job. I think he is also expensive but is another option. 850-596-4975. Great attention to details.

    Hi, this thread was referred from my posting earlier today. Mickey's number is no longer in service, does anyone have an update?

    someone posted above, " He has done a lot of work for the Rivard houses, so you may want to call Debra @ Rivard (850)231-4446 for a reference."

    There is always the chance that he sold out and moved on, but I would try calling Debra to see if she knows before I gave up.

    If you need faux finishing, I know an expert in the area. ;-)

    We used Matthew Arntz (wife is Joan Arntz, who works at Rivard) to paint Conch Out, a daunting challenge. He is licensed and insured. Also does the pressure washing. He began the job when he said he would and finished ahead of schedule, in spite of some rainy weather. I was there for about 9 days during the painting and they cleaned up well in the evenings and were very unobtrusive. We are happy with the job and the price was reasonable. I found Matthew to be extremely consciencious about everything from the paint materials to other maintenance needs other than the painting. He started his own painting and maintenance business last year, after years painting houses at Seaside. You can reach Matthew at his home phone (850)835-2692 or on his cell at (850)855-1832. Send me a PM if you'd like to see the paint job he did on our house and I will e-mail photos to you. It is a three-story house with a lot of trim and decks and six sets of French doors.

    C'mon, Donna, don't be silly. Everyone wants to see pics of the house. Post 'em in the lounge if you want, but post 'em! I want to see that French door color! :wub:

    Believe me, not trying to be coy. I have not yet mastered the art of the thumbnail sketch. Can post photos to the members gallery, but not so advanced as the other at this time. I'll do my best!

    I can always get my kids to come over and help you paint. They are really good if you dont mind finger painting or the impressionist age....
