About me


West Midlands based, M J Guest Ltd. is a small, family run business. Martin Guest is a Master Decorator providing exceptional Hand Painted finishes to Kitchens and Furniture, using tried and tested, traditional methods and techniques, with a modern understanding and approach;


I strongly believe in thorough preparation together with the skilled application of fine products and materials; delivering the very best of finishes…

I’ve made a substantial investment in the latest “Dust-Free” sanding technology currently available; 99.5% dust filtration – Better for you; your home will not have a film of dust for the next six months. Better for me; No dust in the atmosphere to breathe in, Better for the project; flawless surface preparation.

IMG_2299Painting & Decorating is in my DNA; my father, pictured above, served 34 years employment for LG Harris & Co. Ltd. Manufacturing high quality decorating tools up to 1997 – what he doesn’t know about how the best decorating tools should be put together, isn’t worth knowing!
