I should have known better when I let the painter who was painting walls and trim at the time get anywhere near my cabinets. The only reason he was there to begin with was that I was too impatient to wait for the length of time I needed to in order for Jim to do the whole project. After all, I had known Jim to be the best since the two previous projects he had done for me in the 1980's and 1990's. Fast forward to my cabinets being completely ruined by this painter who SAID he knew how to do faux finishes. Thank you, Jim, for coming to the rescue! My cabinets have never looked better, and now, my kitchen remodel is complete!
Master artisans is the best way to describe the superior craftsmanship Jim and his team provide to clients like myself. We have been clients for our luxury home for multiple years and would not think about engaging other painters in the area. From outlining the project, to preparing the site to the work itself, it is a flawless process. Jim and team are extremely professional and provide amazing attention to detail. They make great recommendations, listen to our suggestions and are a joy to work with. Gilreath is often called in, as was our case, to redo other people's work. They are courteous and respectful and perform at the highest quality, from detailed multi-layer finishes to refreshing basic walls. This current project was repainting our entire main living area, removing wallpaper in master bath and repainting, but also completed a detailed faux finish in our theater that is featured in his portfolio here. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or bring him to our new home in a different state. When quality matters, these are your go-to artisans!
Jim and Jeff and all of the employees are very talented. I love my purple bathroom as well as the work they did in our living room and foyer.

Gilreath Decorative Finishes does an amazing job. We have worked with them for many years they have become our go to company for all painting to custom finishes for all our jobs. The painters are very talented and always keep the place as clean as possible during to job process. (especially remodels where the client is living in the home). I highly recommend this company for all needs from simple painting to cabinet finishes.

Jim Gilreath and his son,Jeff,have been crucial members of the design team on the projects I will always consider my "benchmarks " of great design/build.This pair of artisans9 and their skilled team) offer me the authenticity I must have to execute the interiors I envision as a response to the architecture. From them sampling process,the bidding and the actual execution,Gilreath has performed with exactness and understanding. There is no one else I work better with in this aspect of the interior finishing,and I have actually committed to various furniture pieces only because I knew Jim would deliver exactly what I expected for my clients. In closing,I can only say I look forward to any project that involves Gilreath Decorative Finishes!!
Gilreath Decorative Painting did an amazing job on our Master Bath. They created a look that made it seem as if you were standing at the top of the turret of a castle. Exactly what I wanted. The stones of the "walls" look absolutely real and the sky with clouds is amazing. I love them and would use them in less than a heartbeat!
Gilreath Decorative finishes was a wonderful company to work with. I was given different finishes to choose from and Mr. Gilreath was so helpful in choosing paint colors. He and his workers arrived on time and left no mess behind. They did a great job in protecting appliances in my ktichen. I LOVE how my walls look. So many people comment on how beautiful they are. I am SO glad we chose Gilreath, as we interviewed other decorative painters, but they seemed to have the most knowledge and decorative savvy. I would highly recommend Gilreath Decorative Finishes!!
All I can say is the work is absolute perfection!! The crew was neat, polite and on time. Everyday they cleaned their work area and left no mess. It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend them. You won't be disappointed.
I have known and been lucky to have Jim and Sharon work with us on so many projects over the past ten years. They are incredible people, and their work is impeccable. You never have to repeat what needs to be done, and Jim always creates a beautiful finish to any project he has done for us. His son, Jeff also works for him, and is becoming just as accomplished as his father. It's a great family business and they take pride in what they do. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is contemplating this type of work. No doubt about it, you will get more than you paid for! A masterpiece of work can be accomplished.
