Rejuvenation of a post-war home

There’s nothing more quaint and homely than a Queensland cottage – they exude such a charming character. However, time can leave them with a run down, weathered look so all it needs is a second chance for revival. Cue a paint job!


When a newlywed couple took on this once depleted cottage as a project to turn it into a family home, they had no idea just how transformative a professional paint job could be. They entrusted Rochele Painting with the task, as they hold a reputation for being prompt, professional and affordable which they certainly lived up to.

With over 40 years experience, this family-run business uses their expertise to deliver clients cost-effective painting solutions. For this classic Queensland cottage, they did a colour consultation with the couple prior to commencing the job, suggesting a sophisticated and subdued colour palette to bring the home back to life but also create a timeless effect.

Today this cottage is a shining example of how a house can be entirely changed by simply investing in a professional paint job. Your expenditure will be recouped if you ever decide to sell your home, but if it was us we would hold onto this one! It’s absolutely beautiful. Check out the before and after images below.
