We spend the majority of our waking hours here, so giving the Adelady office a facelift was an exciting investment.

Who dis?

Fleurieu’s first choice painters, Ready Set Paint brings homes to life from Victor Harbor to the Adelaide CBD. With owner Ben Greenwood leading a team of brush bosses, you’re in trustworthy hands for quality advice and a jaw-dropping result.

“I get excited by the before and after — being able to completely transform a space and adding value to a home. People put off painting thinking it will turn their lives upside down, but it doesn’t have to! We know it’s a big deal letting us into your space, so we keep things neat and respect your homes, like they’re our own. Give us a call and we’ll put together something that wows with minimal interruption to your life,” Ben says.

Saddle up, here’s what these lovely legends did for us…

Our little cottage on Mary Street in Unley is the ultimate base when we’re not zipping around SA. But, she’s WELL over 100-years-old and needed a little love injection to bring the Adelady vibe to life. Ben and his team rolled in, masked up and totally transformed our digs, making it a joy to turn the key in the door every day.

From consult to result

With an unlimited budget, it’s likely we would’ve gone too far with quirky wallpaper! Luckily, Ben’s head is screwed on and in one visit he gave us a solid plan to give us the best bang for our buck. On the cards were two big ticket items — wallpaper and paint — and in just five days, our little office came to life.

“There are endless options when it comes to wallpaper — it’s a great way of giving a space character. You can find what you want or we can track it down, even if it comes from the other side of the globe,” Ben says.

“For the Adelady office, Kristy found a vibrant tropical print from Crowie’s and I popped into their Malvern store to organise quantities — all she had to do was pay over the phone. I knew that making the front door a feature would tie in with the wallpaper and make it stand out from the road. Then, we framed the front of the office by painting the dull cream picket fence and woodwork with a crisp, bright white, topped off by painting the concrete verandah charcoal grey to complement the stonework and make it pop.”

Get trendy

When it comes to painting your home, basic is best! It’s amazing what a professional paint job using quality products can do.

“Everyone’s gone back to a minimalistic feel,” says Ben. “We’re inundated with requests for crisp white walls, which leaves a home feeling clean, calm and allows you to use features to personalise your sanctuary.”

Ben and his team are ready and set to do anything that involves paint, including cladding, render, textured walls, clear finish timber and painted features. Depending on your needs and budget, they’ll match the products perfectly — including everything from a standard line to washable paint — super handy when little monsters go to town with grubby fingerprints or Sharpies on your walls.
