Specialty Finishes

As your Professional Painting Specialists Lakeshore Decorating embraces your unique vision and can turn it into a one of a kind masterpiece utilizing faux finishing methods.

Faux Finishing dates back thousands of years and has been discovered everywhere from the walls of ancient caves, to the stones on the pyramids of Egypt. Lakeshore Decorating specializes in designing faux finishes that can transform any surface regardless of size, orientation, or shape into a piece of art.

A faux finish is a painting technique where various materials including paint or plaster are manipulated using specific tools and skills to create the look of another material or a textured appearance. There are a variety of styles to choose from; marble, grain, fresco, murals, Venetian plaster, color wash, striƩ, sponging, and rag painting. Due to the number of choices and methods that exist faux finishing is extremely customizable and can be tailored to specific needs and client preferences.

Lakeshore Decorating is the 2-time Winner of Chicago Paint & Coatings Association's "Finest Painted Ladies" Competition
