- Surround Yourself in Beauty -
Marcelino Custom Finishes, Inc. came to life in New York City in 1996, before moving to San Diego, CA in 1998. While we began refinishing smaller, single pieces of furniture, our model quickly grew to scale as we transformed entire homes, estates, and larger commercial projects with our artistic finishes on ceilings, walls, fireplaces, as well as woodwork finishes.
Over the past almost 25 years, MCF and its crew of talented craftsman and artists have delivered superb finishes to many architectural surfaces, including creating realistic decorative paintings, superb Trompe L’Oeil (“trick-the-eye” shading), woodgraining, marbling, murals, elegant Venetian plasters, one-of-a-kind plaster finishes, gold/silver leaf applications, and unique commissioned artwork.
Our clients homes and businesses have spanned internationally from Brazil, New York, Nevada, and California.
We are honored to regularly team-up with well-established builders, business owners, architects, and interior designers.
We do not do it all, but we are exceptional at what we do.
The founder Marcelino DaSilva established MCF, Inc. in New York, in 1996 and moved to San Diego, CA in 1998. Marcelino studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and obtained an interior design degree at Mesa College, in San Diego.

Marcelino and his team are artistically detail oriented. We needed some creative painting done in our condo. They collaborated to create a blend of color, texture, and technique to bring together a sense of warmth and sophistication into our living spaces. I appreciate their integrity throughout the entire project. They were here when they said they would be, and completed the job in a timely manner. While they were painting it was clear that their focus was absolute, and their excitement in the finished work was exemplified by ours!

Super pleased with Marcelino and his team, who did a whole house paint, inside and out, including an inside wood wall "whitewash" and distress, and a fireplace with 80s gold/brass trim that they redid in black.
Marcelino has a very keen eye for colors and styles (whether modern, luxury, or even simple) and the result was fantastic.

Marcelino is a genius - an artist of amazing talent. His work is realistic and mesmerizing. Be sure to ask to see his portfolio of work. From murals to wall finishes that change the look and feel of a room he captures what his clients want.

Marcelino and his team did a phenomenal job! I had a custom reclaimed wood mantel, cabinets and beams on ceiling installed. They are artists, understood color and how to achieve the look I was requesting. They completed on time and within budget. I would highly recommend Marcelino!
Testimony of,Paige B.
Marcelino is truly a brilliant and talented artist! Our original fireplace was a grey (blah) stone and we had done renovations including a nearby ivory and gray/brown granite wet bar. We wanted the fireplace to match that granite. Marcelino transformed our fireplace into a sophisticated, high-end piece we are completely delighted with. As other reviewers have said, Marcelino is a pleasure to have around and does what he says he will do, on time and on budget.Thank you Marcelino!!
