We hope this email finds you well and that you are staying warm this winter!  It has been many months since the last edition of Stirring Things Up! was distributed but due to several requests, we are bringing it back!  As usual, we will feature the latest news, photos and specials from Stir Your Imagination Painting!  In this issue, we feature a few cost saving techniques to update your cabinet makeovers and faux tile....we also include a Thank You to Tom and Barbara Shaw for their awesome support of our business!
As always, we want to thank all of you too for your business and for your referrals to friends, neighbors and relatives!  We pride ourselves on the fact that we are not a typical painting contractor as we offer a very personalized painting service that includes free estimates, free color consultations, free color samples...all  for the same price or less than a Yellow Pages contractor.  Always know too, that we never start another job without finishing your home first!
We honestly can't stress enough how much we appreciate your support especially in these difficult economic times. 
It is because of YOU that our family owned, local business remains steady and hopefully continues to grow!  Thank you......
Kind Regards,
Jim DeBiase, Painting Contractor

Faux Tile for Kitchen and Bath

Faux Tile is all the rage! It's much more affordable than the real tile but looks exactly like it! Many years later, it can easily be painted over!

Kitchen Cabinet Makeover

AFTER PHOTO....(See below for BEFORE photo!)
Our most popular request this year has been for Kitchen Cabinet Makeovers! It is much more affordable to paint and glaze cabinets than it is to replace an entire kitchen! As you can see from these photos, the transformation is amazing! For more detailed photos, visit our website at after kitchen
 This is what the kitchen looked like BEFORE.....
Customer Testimonials..  The Scoop on Us!
Mary, from Delmont: "Jim was the third painting contractor I contacted. The first contractor I called from a local newspaper gave me an unprofessional, illegible estimate and harassed me to hire him to the point where I told him not to call me again.   The second contractor smelled of alcohol when he arrived at my home to give an estimate.  At that point, I thought I would never find a professional painting contactor until I found Jim and Melissa...  AND they were the least expensive estimate out of the three that we received.  Melissa helped me select colors for every room in my home and also sent me free color samples so I could see the colors more clearly.   Jim did an excellent job painting my home and he was clean and quick.  He was right on time and stayed in my home until the job was complete. We got so much more for our money.  We are thrilled and I will refer them to anyone I know." December 2008

Penny from Irwin: "Wow! Melissa is the Goddess of Color! Jim and Melissa turned our house into a warm, inviting home! The kitchen is next on the list to be painted. Melissa and Jim are very easy to work with, are quiet in your home, clean up everything and will help with color choices too. Next year we will have them return to paint our 2nd floor. You don't need to look any further for the top painters in the Pittsburgh Area!" July 2008
Norm and Lisa from Delmont: "Even weeks after you painted our kitchen, we still sit in there and are amazed at the transformation you performed. You took our basic idea, having distressed walls with exposed brick, and brought it to life. The walls of our kitchen are not just nice to look at, they are a work of art. You and Jim are very easy to work with. You are clear about what you will do, prompt with your work, and leave the workspace cleaner than when you started. This was some of the best money we spent on our remodeling project. It is our pleasure to tell people that Stir Your Imagination did such wonderful work for us."  August 2008
