(a few miles, that is)
My name is Don Clasen the owner of Palisades Painting (formerly Applied Painting), a company I started with a friend way back in 1979 in little Mt. Morris, Illinois. Over the years I have painted hundreds of homes and businesses both interiors and exteriors. I’ve scaled back in size more recently from having a crew and extensive equipment. Now I just paint by myself, but you can benefit from my years of experience, expertise and affordable prices.
On my site you can learn about my work and philosophy as well as articles about painting and decorating that you can use on your own as well. I have tried to design this site with a tasteful blend of colors that reflect my sense of style along with tributes to the beauty found in the Pacific Palisades and surrounding areas. I hope you enjoy the experience.
What kind of services can I offer to you?
-Exteriors, whole or in part
-Interiors-walls, trim, ceilings, kitchen cabinets, etc.
-Front door restoration—stain & polyurethane, paint, etc.
-Metal gates and wrought iron
I can also do minor repairs if you need. Just call and ask.
