Who we are

The founder, Shawn Turner, moved to Carbondale in 1997 with the sole purpose of learning this fine art of painting and wood finishing. Having chose painting as a career in 1989, he always strives to advance his knowledge and technique.

Dedicated to his trade, his every attempt is for perfection. Realizing that not everything can be perfect, he has the knack to make projects appear so. Knowing where to draw the line while driving for perfection is difficult. His unique approach to every project is above the rest.

""I chose my career out of the love to make stuff look pretty. Painting did not chose me.Or did it?"

Shawn Turner

(The truth about painting and finishing)


Welcome to the Specialized Finishes website. I would like to thank you for taking the time to read about us.

We are a painting company that delivers a wide array of protective and decorative coatings on various substrates.

Quality and reliability is our main focus. From preparation to finishing, every step is critical to produce the required end result.


Every project requires special attention. Variables are not a constant in this craft. The substrates, environmental

conditions, color choice and where the coating will live all tell us the story.

Details such as caulking width and depth will determine if your caulk shrinks and separates over time. I could go on.


If you would like to know more about the process then please contact me below.


If you are just looking to have a quick paint job done cheaply then we are not a good fit for your project. 

House are our largest purchase. We need them to last as long as possible. After the home is built the protection lies on the exterior and also the interior of the structure.

We love all finishing. From repainting your home, faux touch-up repair from a pet or an accident, to machine buffing a dining room table to a fine automotive finish. Color is our challenge along with the Sun. The variables are limited yet the possibilities are endless. Meticulous efficiency is our goal.


Do you have questions about protective coatings for wood surfaces? We have answers. Type of wood? Interior? Exterior? Level of exposure to the elements? Wear and tear traffic use? Does it have previous coatings?

If wood is not initially sealed on all sided before assembly. If this step is skipped the wood will crack, cup, and buckle sooner than you would like.

< Sometimes the light

   hits just right<

>And sometimes industry does not have the tools needed for the project>

Step back and admire
That is custom painting
Could it be decorative painting?
Sooo Pretty

37 Stripes with 6 different colors. My math and masking skills were put to the test. I masked it twice because the colors had no border. The stripes were butted next to each other. Tons of fun. There were no lasers used in this production.

Carbondale Arts is responsible for this crafty bus. The Rosybelle Mobile Maker Space is designed to promote the arts starting with children. A non-profit put together with local and private funding.
