Custom Painting Contract

Painting furniture for clients can be fun and lucrative, but without a contract you can run into disaster. This simple, one-page agreement spells out everything clearly, from colors and specialty finishes, to timelines, and the super-important fine print that covers critical things you may not have thought of. Eliminate miscommunication while protecting yourself and your client, and presenting a professional image. 

The document is customizable, so tailor it to suit your business.

Note: I am not a lawyer and this document is not intended as legal advice.
