D'franco Painting & Wallpaper – Elgin, Geneva, St. Charles, Chicagoland


The D'franco Difference?

A passion to help others 

We do that in several ways because we understand what it's like to have colors in your home that are dated, wallpaper that you can't stand to look at, and cabinets that are an eyesore! Everything we can do for you, I have done in my home or the homes of my family. We take the frustration, stress, and anxiety out of your home re-decorating projects. With 19 plus years of experience and training, we will help you love the space you're in. 

Using employees NOT subcontractors

You may ask if it matters, we think it does. I want to make sure that you feel comfortable and can trust every person that we send into your home. With pre-screening, background checks, drug tests, on-going training and evaluations, employee reviews and goal setting, we are confident in who we send out. 

Giving back to the community

Profits are great and without running a profitable company, we would not be in business. But we are here for more than making money. Aside from the Paint-It Forward programs, we have found other programs to help with such as:

Our Mission is Simple:

We help you love the space you're in. 

We do so by using these 5 core values:


We are a faith based company. You can read Mathew 7:14 ("For narrow is the gate and difficult is the path") or Robert Frost ("two roads diverged into one and I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference") Faith is not just in God, but that we will provide an amazing experience. We have a business like no one else because we do business like no one else. 


We solve problems and fix the pains of our customers. If a customer is not happy then we have done a poor job of communicating our process, systems, or understanding a customers expectations. If something's not right we do not make an excuse- we fix it.


A customer may not have the vision to know what the final product or outcome will be.  They may not be able to see what is possible. We must be like an offensive coordinator- sitting above the field during a game to see what everyone is doing. They see beyond what a player can see so that the best decision is made for successful results.


We raise honey bees.  It is a fun and ever learning hobby. The only thing that can fit in to a honey comb is a honey bee. The only thing the bees are working toward is making honey.  We provide wallpaper, cabinet re-finishing and painting services. We focus on our talents to provide excellent results.


Do you remember the last time you ate fresh or raw honey? That same smile and joy is what we want to see and hear from every customer we work with. We do that -Just like our honey bees, we have processes and systems for all we do so that like honey comb, we produce consistent and uniform results.  



We understand how important it is to use quality materials and get the job done right the first time. We are fully insured so you are secure knowing you and your home are protected.

Part of our success is being able to contribute to our community. This year, we were proud to take part in several opportunities to give back to our community. 

One of our programs is Paint-It-Forward. This was inspired by another paint company we met through networking at a paint trade show.  So we have made it part of how we can help people and organizations in our local community.   If you know of a family in need of help with their home, go to the Paint it forward page and fill out a nomination form to let us know!! We would love to see how we can use our family of employees and fellow contractors to help where we can. 

We also started in 2020 Mothers day and Fathers day giveaways! For mothers day, we gave away a kitchen cabinet giveaway through facebook! It was a huge success and over a hundred people entered this great giveaway. I could not leave the dad out- so for Fathers day we gave away redoing one of the most important places - outside of the garage/man cave- the deck!

Dfranco Painting Wallpaper - Juery

He may look young, but Juery came about with a good amount of experience with cabinet painting and has had some great ideas for us to incorporate as part of our systems and processes for cabinet refinishing. He's great with a sprayer and is always talking about his daughter. These are two things you will see and hear from him while he is working on your kitchen.

Joshua!  This man may not have room in his car for you, but I guarantee he will have his fishing gear!  Josh comes from an automotive background and has been great with his attention to detail.
