Tell us a little bit about you…
We are a family of four, our kids are adults and my daughter and I are partners in our furniture painting business.

Why did you start your business?
Our business was started out of our passion for Interior Design, Color and “Treasure Hunting” My daughter and I love beautifying our surroundings and have always looked for vintage treasures to do that with. We painted a dresser for Karla’s bedroom and instantly it dawned on us, that we could do this!

Where do you find inspiration?
We were inspired by watching the Nate Berkus show and on one of his shows, learned about Miss Mustard Seed and her blog. We then drove all the way from NJ to meet her at the Lucketts Spring Market in 2012. Just this month, we drove all the way from NJ to WI for our Retailer Training. Serious fans, I would!

What is your favorite thing to collect? 
We don’t have a specific thing we like to collect, but we do like to keep it hip! To find unique vintage pieces and to make it “current” by transforming it with decorative paint.

What is your favorite MMSMP color and why? 
So many, almost all! I love vibrant color and cannot paint everything white. Dried Lavender and the greens, make me happy! Karla loves Apron Strings.
