I sent this call for help to my network on Twitter and Facebook
"need a recommedation for a reliable painter in the DC , Maryland area"
Linda Dickerhoof "please share with me when you get it!!" ( I am doing that through this blog)
Melanie Mitchell "Pete Ferry with Remodel Virginia (firstname.lastname@example.org). They do a lot more than paint and I've used them for several projects but Pete is nice, reliable, honest and fair which is tough to find in that business sometimes :)and of course they also just paint if my answer wasn't clear :)!!!
I will Update this post if I get more recommendations. Please feel free to comment here and make your own recommendations. Thanks.
