“Everyone deserves to have a home they love!”
oI am a wife, mom and grandma and a creative decorative painter for the past 18 years. I married my husband, Jason, of 30 years at 18. I have 4 grown kids ranging from 21-27 and 4 beautiful grand kiddos. We had our first child at 19 and our last when I was 26. Oh my goodness we were babies having babies!
I absolutely love to create and paint! I always tell people that back when I was a stay-at-home mom with 4 babies I never would have dreamed I’d be where I am today. You never know where life will take you! I always loved decorating my home and creating new finishes. I researched and painted my cabinets by laying the doors out on our ping pong table. I painted the concrete floor in my laundry room complete with a custom stencil. I used to watch DIY shows religiously and the motto “You Can Do It” engraved in my brain! Living on a one income budget and 4 children can really put a damper on the decor budget. I learned how to decorate our home using fine furniture and wall finishes to turn it into a home we could be proud of and love! I went to take my first decorative painting course and left my husband with the 4 kiddos! We had never been apart except for when I was in the hospital having a baby so when I got back he had a new appreciation for me. I knew more after I got back and started one of the largest decorative painting projects of my career!
Back in the day, I used to go with my grandma to all the best auctions to pick up the best pieces of furniture and watch her transform them into beautiful pieces of fine furniture. I learned from my grandma that the way a piece “felt” was of the utmost importance.
If I could pinpoint my design style, it would be “Rustic Glam”. I love the luxury feel of a classic shiny piece of furniture and a gold chandelier paired with an old door or wood beam just to bring everything back down to earth. Mixing the two keeps everything very classic.
Today, I am so excited where my business has taken me. I run a lucrative decorative painting company and enjoy working with so many great people who have let me create amazing finishes for their home so they can finally love their space! I am excited to share my designer finishes and tutorials!
Thank you for joining me on this crazy journey!
