What Is “Project Color,” and Why Are We So Excited About It?

There’s no question that we’re committed to helping our clients. Service is what we’re passionate about, why we are always working to improve and grow, and why we’ve attracted such a fantastic team of professionals (enthusiasm is contagious!).

We also, however, are committed to our community.

In fact, beyond commitment, we believe it’s a local business’ responsibility and privilege to invest back into the surrounding area.

So, what is Project Color and why are we excited about it? It’s an opportunity, an event, a reminder of the strength of community, and, to be honest, it’s also one of the highlights of our year.

Our 11th Annual Project Color Event Is Coming Soon!

Each year we ask our friends and neighbors to tell us about a person, family, or nonprofit organization in need. One of the nominees will then be selected to receive $10,000 of free painting services.

Our goal is to learn about and find someone (or an organization) that is struggling, and come alongside them by offering our expertise and filling a tangible need. Not only does this provide encouragement in the form of lifting a financial burden, but it’s also a reminder that they aren’t alone.

And, how can fresh, beautiful paint be anything other than encouraging?

To get an even better sense of what Project Color is all about, you can follow the links below to see photos and details captured during our last two events.

2014 - Raphael House of San Francisco

2015 - Oakland Elizabeth House

What’s Next?

The MB Jessee Painting team is already working and planning; we're thrilled to begin laying the groundwork for all that’s involved.

Would you be willing to help us?

We’ll handle the details and the painting, but we do need your nominations. Start thinking now of who you might suggest, and why. As soon as we’re ready to accept nominations we’ll announce it on Facebook and offer the next steps.

Let’s get ready for the best Project Color event yet! Thank you in advance for your help, and for spreading the word. If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact us at MB Jessee Painting.

Customer Reviews

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“The entire MB Jessee team is courteous, efficient and professional. From scheduling and estimating to the crew managers and crew, they all did an excellent job on a small (but complicated) two room project in my house. I'm already thinking about getting them scheduled for the next project in the spring.”

— Cari Cheney

“I loved working with M.B. Jessee from start to finish on a relatively small paint job that grew a bit. I felt in very good hands from the moment Matt Jessee came out to give me the estimate and talk about my job. He was very easy to talk to and he handled my changes very well. Then the actual work done by Rigoberto and Mario was impeccable. They were neat and meticulous and the paint job looks beautiful. I could not have asked for more and when I did, they accommodated me 100%. I will not hesitate to call M.B. Jessee again and to refer them to friends.”

— Nancy Kurkjian

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“I highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

“M.B. Jessee painted the exterior of my Spanish house over 9 years ago, and they did such an incredible job that they are still getting referrals from me today. The paint is holding up perfectly -- there is absolutely no peeling chipping or any other deterioration. I still remember that my final walk-through list consisted of items written on one side of a 3x5 index card (and I'm REAL picky about my house!) However, when Matt and I did that walk-through over HALF the items were no longer an issue, as his team had noticed them first and they had already been resolved.”

— JoAnn Newcomb

“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”
