As a creative business owner and artist, I feel a responsibility to those people I serve. When asked to do a project I’ve never done before I have drawn on my collective skills and past experiences with products and done what most people in my position would do, I Google it!! What I’ve found is a great deal of misinformation and poor practice for an enduring paint finish! My goal is to present tried and true information on a variety of paint finishes that can be trusted to last many years! Whether you’re a DIYer or a Pro, quality products are key and technique is the “Secret Sauce!” to help your pieces stand out and withstand years of common use!
Hello, my name is Caren Brumleve and I’m an artist who owns a decorative painting company! I’m a city girl from Detroit, living on 20 acres in an area of earth not even big enough to be called a city but a rural township!! Really! The closest town has a population of around 200! I’ve been here nearly 30 years and I’m still adjusting. Truly though, there’s no better place on earth to raise a family! Which by the way is where my darling husband and myself have raised our 3 unique and kinda weird children (they get it honest)!! With the kids growing up and moving out we just pick on each other and annoy our dogs, horses, and way too many cats!!
Decorative painting (for those not familiar with the term) does not include the solid color of gray or blue you’ve chosen for your walls but the fun stuff like murals, faux finish, and really any kind of paint on the wall that makes you actually notice the wall! I also paint and custom woodgrain furniture, cabinets, and doors as well as so many other finishes! My business actually started off very differently. Originally what started as a home-based custom picture framing business has morphed into the diverse decorative painting business it is today!
I am quirky, weird, and passionate about a lot of things starting with God and family! I talk freely about my love of God and the blessing of artistic ability I’ve been given. More than anything I really want to serve people by giving honest, proven information and encouragement to help beautify their homes and help them to feel more beautiful themselves!
