          Student Testimonials


          I loved the Certified Home Decor Artist Training program. The tutorials are great for people that are just starting out to professionals that want to learn new faux finishes. Stacey’s videos are very easy to follow and understand. Plus she was always happy to take the time and answer any questions I had. Another great benefit is Stacey uses many different products. So not only did I learn finishes, she also provided product knowledge. I have sold many of her designs to clients. I’ve also created my own designs based on her instructions.

          I had the pleasure of taking Stacey’s staging wall workshop this past year. I have to tell you that I learned so much!

          Her class not only provided instruction on how to create a textured wall finish but also provided tips on lighting, selecting the appropriate wall color, staging, and showcasing you’re painted beauties.

          I highly recommend Stacey, she has years of experience and is a warm and encouraging teacher. Thank you, Stacey!
