I own a decorative painting business on Long Island, NY. I picked up a paintbrush for the first time in 1998, and haven't put it down since. I do all phases of faux finishing, Venetian and other plasters, cabinetry/furniture/formica makeovers, murals, etc., etc. My motto is, if it isn't breathing, it can be painted. There are so many great products on the market now, that just about anything can be repurposed and transformed.
I hope to learn as much as I can, as well as offer my advice when I am able to.
