FAQs


How do I get started?

How much will it cost?
The cost of our projects depends largely on the amount of time involved in the creation of the intended finishes, preparation of the space, difficulty of the project and time required to apply the finish. Prices for various finishes can vary greatly. It is nearly impossible to provide a “best guess” without having a full understanding of the project.

Personal Message from Mary Anne:


Starting small, we built our business into a full studio that can handle a variety of mediums and techniques. We seek to do high quality work that can bring together the elements of delicate decorative design, elegant wall finishes and classic plaster applications and innovative distressed furniture finishes.

We approach each project with an initial consultation, listening to designers and clients, offering solutions to the areas on which they are focused. We illustrate our ideas for our projects with a variety of 2’x2′ sample boards. In the process of creating our finished product we carefully listen, create, revise and ensure that each application that is applied exceeds the expectations of our clients. On site work is part of our routine. While much of our sample work is done in the studio, our crew is able to scaffold, prepare and execute on location.

Most of all we see ourselves as craftsmen and artists. We treat each project with the care it deserves and count ourselves fortunate to be able to live and work as artists.”


Once you’ve contacted us, we gather as much information about your vision as possible. We will schedule an appointment to meet with you at the site of the project. We will bring our portfolio and sample finishes based on the type of project. At that time, we will also take measurements and photos. See our Getting Started Section for additional information.
