My name is Oisin Butler and I’m new here to Traditional Painter. I’m a self employed Painter and Decorator working in Dublin, Ireland. I have a great crew of painters and decorators working for me and though we do all types of painting and papering we like to think or ourselves as specialists when it comes to hand painted kitchens and fitted furniture.
I admire what Andy has done here and feel that its a great idea to share experience. On my own website, which is quite new by the way, I have started to blog about painting and decorating.
A friend asked why I would give out advice to people because they will just do the work themselves instead of calling on me to do it for them. Well, some people with little experience of painting are going to paint their own homes anyway so why not advise them?
I’m interested in keeping up to date with the techniques and paints other painters are using today and even though I’m qualified and have been in the trade for years I feel theres always something new to learn.
