How to Order From

Step 1: Take at least 3 photos (preferably not Polaroids) of the structure: front view, front left angle, and front right angle. (Local clients, if you would like Mansions by Melanie to take the photos, there is an additional charge.)

Step 2: For any special details (windows hidden by trees, leaded glass doors, gingerbread, etc.) please take additional close-up pictures. The more detailed the photos are, the more detailed the painting will be. Hidden or unclear details will not be able to be painted.

Step 3: If the color of the house in the photo does not look like the actual color of the house, please send us a color swatch (the kind at a paint store) or some other example of the color that matches the true color.

Step 4: Indicate which view you want the portrait to be painted on the back of the picture showing that view.

Step 5: Mail photos, special instructions, size desired, and check or money order (in USD) payable to Melanie Stein. Please include your mailing address, phone number, and email address. We will contact you when we receive your order(s). You may Email Melanie the scans and instructions to us. Please make sure that the scans are clear and show detail.
