MARA LAFAY, OWNER & OPERATOR
I started painting over twenty years ago because I just love transformation. To take something old and breathe new life into it excites me. I love to re-purpose things that might wind up in the dumpster and then turn them into something useful and beautiful.
The search is half the fun and I find items in the most unexpected places, sometimes with much history. I often find inspiration in nature and all things organic. My approach to painting and redesigning is artistic, colorful and often unexpected. I'm a texture junkie and love specialty finishes. I've traveled the world as a working hairdresser and have even worked as a floral designer before painting furniture came into my life and it has been quite a wonderful journey.
My goal is to create a look that you will love and is unique to you to beautify your home. Weather it be decorating your home, a custom floral or redesigning your out-dated furniture. I pay attention to the smallest detail to create a truly unique one of a kind piece.
"I took a class a few weeks back and it was to decorate a chalkboard. We used clay and molds and it was so much fun. Not only was Mara super upbeat and energetic (you feel so comfortable) but she's a great teacher! I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I am not the most creative or talented and I think mine turned out great. Thank you so much for such a fun and memorable day." -Debbie S., customer
