    Absolutely wonderful, gorgeous hand-painted stool! Super quick delivery once shipped. Thank you, Mary and The Decorative Paintbrush, for designing the perfect stool, based on our conversations and theme/color palette. My daughter is so excited she doesn't have to share her stool - also a gorgeous masterpiece by you! - with her brother any longer! This is truly a gift for the entire family. THANK YOU!!

About

Turning everyday things into functional pieces of art!

12 years ago my friend Maggie and I decided to start our own painting and wallpapering business: 2 Women and a Paintbrush.

We were 2, newly single moms, who needed some money and a flexible schedule (we had 5 kids between us), so we did what we knew best PAINT! Maggie was an RN and I was in Special Ed. but we loved the idea of being our own boss, the ability to be with our kids and being creative on a daily basis.

Our love of color and design were a natural fit . Artistic paintings, murals, faux finishes, color selection, all were just steps in a learning process for us.

While in peoples homes, painting the walls, people would ask if i could paint their furniture to match. Well that's when The Decorative Paintbrush was born! I took everything I had been doing on the walls and transferred it over to a smaller scale-and wham! It was a hit.

Over the years the product line has expanded from just furniture to an array of funky fun pieces. You name it, we paint it-that's our motto! Everything looks better in color, right?! And our bold colors and simplistic designs always make people smile-which we feel...is the best part of the job!

Every piece that comes out of our studio is uniquely hand crafted and designed just for you. So, stay awhile, look around and let us put together something fabulous for you!

    I've always had a love affair with color! From the moment I picked up my first Crayon-I was hooked! There's nothing more exciting to me then a white canvas, a new can of paint, and a crisp new brush! Boundless possibilities! Yes, I'm easily amused.

Returns and exchanges
We try our best to package everything accordingly, but accidents can happen during the shipping process. If something arrives damaged please contact me immediately @ thedecorativepaintbrush.gmail.com or via conversations, and we'll get it taken care of right away. It is FEDEX's policy to have the receiver retain all packaging materials. If your item arrives damaged, all packing materials including the box it arrived in must be saved for inspection. A FEDEX agent will pick up the item and it's packaging. It could take a few weeks to resolve the issue. Your piece will be replaced by me as soon as the shipping company issues a refund to me.

There are no returns on custom designed or personalized items (unless I personally made a mistake) Please, make sure you check all the measurements, sizes, & colors in the description, to make sure everything is exactly the size and design you need it to be. If you're unsure of a size or measurement please contact me. Also, sometimes colors/patterns may appear different then what is in the photos. I try very hard to stick to the exact picture, but sometimes colors may be lighter or darker, or a pattern may be switched out for something else. Again, if you have any questions regarding this policy please let me know. You always need to put all the information in the notes section when ordering.

If the item is a custom design I'll send a picture before the item is shipped, for your approval, to avoid any surprises upon delivery but please let me know if you'd like this done. If you'd like to change something at that point, additional charges may occur depending on the extent of the rework or items changed.

In some cases there may be a $5 restocking fee as well, if an item is cancelled (7 days) after it's been purchased.
Payment
-We accept all major cc, PayPal & money orders (money orders must be preapproved, please contact seller)

-Cancellations may be made within 3 days of purchase for a full reimbursement after that it will be up to the seller and based on progress of work and resale of the item. Contact us with concerns, we are always willing to try and work something out.
Shipping
-Most of the items in our shop have the "Shipping & Handling" already calculated in, with the exception of the larger pieces.

-The cost to ship larger pieces of furniture changes with the location. So, if you don't see a price listed under shipping, please contact us so that we can figure it out for you. All we need is your city, state & zip and we'll get you a quote within 24 hrs.

-Most all of our items are shipped via FedEx ground (if you need something beyond that, ex: next day, 2 day, express etc...Please, let me know). On occasion, for our smaller items, we do use USPS.

-Greyhound express is also used for larger furniture pieces. If you decided to use greyhound express, please be aware you will need to pick up the item at your local Greyhound Station, however this is a MUCH MORE AFFORDABLE way to ship larger items.

-Insurance: We ship FedEx ground. Our items are insured for the amount of the item. If you need anything above that please let me know.
Additional policies and FAQs
Custom orders? Absolutely! Contact me with your ideas. Additional charges may apply though, depending on the size and extensiveness of the artwork. Again, contact me and we can work anything out I'm sure :D
