Flying Colors Painting Co specializes in professional re-painting and re-staining for residential and commercial properties throughout Thurston and Pierce Counties.

We began in 1980 with a vision to provide professional painting services. Since then, we’ve become the largest residential re-painting company in Thurston County, and we’ve been voted Best of South Sound from 2012 to 2018. Flying Colors was also the first painter recognized as a Thurston Green Business.

You can expect courteous, skillful, and impressive service throughout the whole process.

From scheduling an appointment, to meeting with our estimator, to having us paint your home,  we provide you the best products and services and remain very respectful with your property.

Flying Colors Painting Co. Team


Flying Colors Painting Co. Owner

Dustin Wilson, founder of Flying Colors Painting Co, doesn’t have a single white wall in his home. He began painting in 1980, finding that it allowed him to do two of his favorite things – feed his family and serve his community.
His reputation for honesty and excellence quickly established Flying Colors as the premier painting company in the South Sound.

Katie has been with Flying Colors for 8 years. Before she started working with us, she had painted for 5 years, and she took a few year break in the middle of her time with us to run her own general contracting business. She started in Thurston County and now runs our Tacoma location. She loves the urban environment of the city and the team she works with at Flying Colors Pierce County. When she isn’t painting, Katie loves to restore and remodel her own home, and spend time with her wife and 3 dogs.
