Classic Paint and Wallpaper: creative answers to all your painting needs.



Creative answers to all your painting needs.

Paint has never been more popular as an interior design tool. Sarasotans have become adventurous: painting whole walls in bright contrasting colors, or changing the character of their walls and furniture with such creative treatments as marbleizing, stenciling and pickling.

That means it's never been more important to turn to an expert paint company. The one to whom both painting professionals and do-it-yourselfers turn is Classic Paint & Wallpaper.

Longtime experience and a commitment to quality make the staff at Classic Paint & Wallpaper true artists in the field of paint. They delight in solving your painting needs. "If you're a novice who wants to marbleize a piece of furniture or a wall, we show you the correct paints and how to do it step-by-step," says manager Jim Wasilewski. "We even number the cans for you in order of how they're to be used. And all the way through the project, we're happy to answer any questions." Classic Paint & Wallpaper carries only high-quality, reliable Benjamin Moore Paints. Customers appreciate the company's free video planner service. It allows them to see exactly what their choices and combinations will look like before purchasing them by "painting" with actual Benjamin Moore colors on an in-store computer.

Customers also rely on the company's in-depth accessories department. "If we don't know how to do something, or don't have a particular item in stock, we call our suppliers and find out how to get it," Wasilewski says.

Classic Paint & Wallpaper's specialty is matching paint colors to fabric, wallpapers and old painted surfaces that customers bring in. The company has assembled a list of painters and wallpaper hangers it can highly recommend, and it also offers a free home inspection service. "We examine the entire house and point out what's chalky, or what's peeling and how to fix it before you paint over it. Our philosophy is that if you paint over a bad surface without proper preparation, you're wasting your time and money."

Classic Paint & Wallpaper also stocks an extensive line of wallcoverings, including the prestigious Gagne Wallcovering line, with its recently developed scrubbable string papers.
