Hi Everyone, I’m Nena Garza Sexton and this is my attempt to blog. I’m a decorative Finisher, animal lover and a wife to the luckiest man on earth. I have 2 beautiful fur babies (Tucker and Sophie) and if I could I would have more but there’s always my husband reminding me that 2 is enough. I love to create, paint, decorate, travel, cook, put together parties, spend time with family, friends and my fur babies. Anything related to home decor seems to catch my attention. I’m always dreaming of the things I can change in my house or the things I can do to improve the overall decor without spending a fortune. I’m very passionate about paint. You can do so much with paint and the cost is minimum compared to the impact you can create with it. That’s why I started my business 10 years ago. We were still newlyweds and we had just built a house. I wanted to add decorative finishes to some rooms but I couldn’t see myself paying someone to do something I knew I could do myself. I had already finished several rooms in the past and they looked good. So I decided to take faux finishing classes.
One class led to another. One or 2 months later, I was quitting my job to start my own business. It has been a very pleasant experience and along the way I have learned so many tricks and made some wonderful friendships. I now have a studio where I teach the tricks of the trade to those of you who want to learn all about paint, plasters, etc. We teach classes for the D.I.Y. as well as to the professionals in the paint industry. A few months ago we added more paint products to our store for anybody who want to re-purpose a piece of furniture you already have. Have you heard of furniture paint that doesn’t require sanding or stripping? We have it! Our paint adheres to almost everything without having to prep before painting. This is the reason why I’m blogging. I want everyone to know about these awesome paints. Yes, we have Chalk based paints! We carry Maison Blanche Vintage Paint as well as Amy Howard at Home Paints. Two great companies dedicated to provide you, with everything you need to create a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture.
More to come!
