My fellow happy painters!
I am so happy and excited to share with you my newest program: the Secret Source Club. This will be a paid monthly subscription and will run through a Facebook group where you decide the content! The main goal of this club is to encourage you all to be more free and fearless about painting and creating finishes.
I get questions all the time about how I come up with looks, how I knew how to use which product, and so on and so fourth. The truth is: I am a rule breaker. I can’t learn step by step. I have to experiment in order to grow. I have been shamed by a variety of people for doing things my way instead of the step by step way. I like to mix things up and treat every project like art. A lot of my success as a decorative painter is all given credit to that. I want to teach people how to paint this way. I want people to have the courage to rebel a little and trust themselves enough to create something totally different than what they could imagine. I want to give people a look they want by teaching them a new technique. I want to let people know it’s okay to not be uptight about creating a look. It’s okay to be free and break these weird structures a lot of people think they need in order to get a beautiful look. So my friends, I give you the Secret Source Club.
How does this work? Well, Starting out I will get to know each one of you and learn more about what you want to get out of this group and I will create content accordingly.
This is the perfect opportunity if you:
- Teach a chalk paint class and want to know more techniques.
- You are a hobbyist and want to know what I know.
- If you are working on large scale projects.
- You need interior design help.
- Or you want to start up your business and need help.
This club will be the place to get what you want from me so I can teach you directly! I will be the source to guide you to the next level of painting.
Since it’s online, it doesn’t matter where you are in the world. We can all come together and I can teach you exactly what you want and need.
Join right now.
This is a lot different from my previous Summer of Finishes and Harvest of Finishes Facebook groups. Instead of me deciding what finishes you are going to learn, in the secret source club, YOU DECIDE what you want to learn! You bring me what you want and I give you the content.
The Secret Source Club will include:
- Live tutorials, tips, and pre videos to my content.
- Consultations, help, support, and feedback from myself and others in the club.
- Requests! You can request what content that YOU want to see. I will make videos specifically for YOU!
- A small community of people who want to venture out of boring painting projects as well. You are welcomed to post photos, comment and receive uplifting comments on your work!
- You can learn about other products besides paint to create amazing work
Because this club is all about freedom, you are welcome to join and leave at any time you wish. Every person is welcomed warmly to join.

I met my client Julie though a mentoring group and became friends. She appreciated my work and told me it was her personal goal to work hard and make enough money to hire me and my team to redo her beach side apartment! She met her goals and we made her dream come true by flipping her apartment in 5 days!
I collaborated with another designer I love on this project because I knew I needed a great eye for shopping. We painted, shopped, and organized her home to get it the sophisticated and updated space it is now.
In those 5 days we managed to flip work our magic, check out the stunning results below:
If your home is a design flop or you need help getting a beautiful space, ask for a consultation. I can help you get the space you love and desire. Let’s create!
I hope you all stayed inspired and creative,
Starting out fresh is a great feeling. Moving into a new home is one of those feelings. but what happens when you’re stuck with a home still left with a previous owners design? What are your options? Where do you turn to?
My client Debbie reached out to me for a paint consultation. The homes color scheme was very yellow. Yellow walls, warm colored tile, and orange cabinets. Super outdated, and I could see that she was super lost. This was not her style but she didn’t really know where to go. I picked out a color for her walls to update her home, but I could tell she wasn’t going to be as happy if she didn’t give her new home the best design. Painting walls and picking floors is a great start for great design, but sometimes you need to bring out the design guns when you can. I called out a designer I work and came up with a color pallet. I then used that color pallet to repaint large furniture pieces in her home that were focal points in her home. I stained a table, plastered a beautiful fireplace, and repainted a console.
The transformation started with taking this table and turning it way darker. Dark stains can add a certain richness that some vacant spaces may need.
Next, I wanted to tackle her fireplace. This is an architectural piece that needed to not be so plain and basic. We took the plaster all the way up to the wall making the room feel a lot taller and spacious.
I repainted her sideboard/ buffet in her dining room to match the dinning room table I stained. I also painted it to go with her new color pallet and fabrics a lot easier.
You can watch how the transformation and see how I painted this in my quick little YouTube video below:
After everything was refinished, painted, fabrics put into place, and her new decor all set in, the home was looking incredible!
If you are feeling a little overwhelmed in a new home or space please don’t hesitate to get the best design! A new home is the perfect place to start because there is so much room to grow into.
Stay happy and creative friends,
