“Sandy McRae and the whole team at Distinctive Finishes were great to work with.  We had a very tight deadline and they worked very hard to meet this tight deadline during our recent home renovation project. Most importantly the finished product is incredible. We entertain frequently and our guests often comment on the beautiful and uniquely decoratively painted ceilings.
