I’m factory trained & certified by Faux Effects, General Finishes, CeCe Caldwell’s, Chalk & Clay Paints and American Clay Plasters to sell & train applications using their products and offering my knowledge and skills learned from 44 years in my Painting and Decorative Wall Finishes Business.

Teaching about our products and applications is required when buying and using designer finishes. DIYers go on Facebook daily seeking help for their project. Basic knowledge makes the finish USER-FRIENDLY! Kitchen/Baths/Cabinets and furniture makeovers are the most asked for classes so the FURNITURE REFORM SCHOOL came into being.
