SHELLY: You know.....name on sign.....Shelly. That's me and I really am the boss. I'm not the best at any one thing. More often than not I'm told what to do and how to do it the right way. My go-to swear word is "sugar smacks". I tell the girls I'm leaving....bye, see ya later......then come back in at least 2 more times. It's so bad they've started to time how long it takes me to come back in again. Love what we do though and totally love and appreciate each of the girls.
AMANDA: She's the boss's daughter and she thinks she's the boss but she's not. She does wear the title of The General though and wears it well. She runs a tight ship at the shop and keeps the girls running.....literally. When they can't run the doors to the drying racks as fast as she sprays them I've seen her grab a painted doors, one for each hand plus balance one on her head, and run them to the drying rack herself. The girls got mad spraying skills and we'd be lost without her. PS. She doesn't really balance a door on her head but probably could if she tried.
AMY: She's the organized person I hope to be when I grow up. She's the one who will call you before we start your project to give you all the details you need to know. She does a fabulous job with just about every aspect of the business. So grateful she's a part of the team!
JILL: I'm thinking Jill needs a new nickname. She's got a bad back so has tried quitting a few times but we're an addictive bunch of girls and she keeps coming back to us. What's the saying.....a glutton for punishment?!? Facebook post after she sprayed herself in the face with the primer: #ivetriedquitting She's the glazing chick. See, first she was really protective of her role in the business, didn't want anybody else to know how to rock it out like she does. Now she's so dang good that she doesn't even have competition.
JODY: This chicka worked with us for a while then left for almost a year and then came back for more. We missed her while she was gone. She's the ooolllldddd one of the group. She'd be the first to point out that I only trail her by a few months but I need something to tease her about.
LISA: Sassy Pants is the perfect name for Lisa. We even have a sprayer named after her, just plain old sassy. I love spending time with her and hope she feels the same about me. She's the master kitchen putter-togetherer when we're wrapping up your project. Come to think of it she's pretty proficient at just about everything. If laughter really is the best medicine it's good to be with Lisa because you'll for sure spend some time holding your side.
LIZ: she's the reason we're now working in the Grand Haven area. She's a sweetheart and does an amazing job painting! She's been a great asset to the team.
BRANDIE: I've made her the shop boss because......well because someone needs to be in charge. It's only been a month and things are running more smoothly than ever before. If there's a job to be done she's going to make sure it gets done. Glad, so very glad, she's part of the team!!
FAYE: Can you say "competitive"? It's fun to see her in action when she thinks she has competition for being the at.....well, everything. She's a one-woman work crew. I never cease to be amazed at the awesome job she does, how detailed she is yet crazy efficient. If you're looking to buy or sell a house she does that as well through Coldwell Banker in Holland.
NICOLE: The queen when it comes to painting your cabinets, walls, trim, stripping wallpaper, whatever. Thanks for being part of the team Nicole!!
CHRISSY: cabinet painter and handy woman! If she doesn't know how to do it she wants to learn. Apparently YouTube is good for that sort of thing. Very thankful to have her when we end up with odd situations.
WENDY: she's our newbie! Learning the business from prepping wood doors to demo and hanging them again. She's going great and we're so happy to have her as part of the team. PS: she makes amazing lasagna!!
DAVID: poor kid, stuck working with a bunch of crazy ladies! Mom said he needed a job and we were happy to take him. Prep work is good but he's awesome with demo and hanging. Maybe it's a guy thing.....lol!!
Check back soon. This page is currently under construction. I need to add about 6 more girls to the above list!
