Hi, I’m Staci!

I am a full-time artist, professional faux finisher, and paint instructor. In 2008, I started my first company, Faux Finish Designs, transforming spaces inside and outside clients' homes and businesses. In 2014, in addition to working on jobsites, I began taking part in workshops at which I taught my signature finishes to other artisans. Now, many years and hundreds of clients & students later, my new company, Surface Effects Studio, allows me to fulfill my life's calling- to create custom art and teach others to develop and enhance their own painting skills!

You may have noticed that my shop has been MIA on the Etsy platform for over a year. That is because 2021-2022 has been a time for many profound changes in my business. With the help of my wonderful husband, Shane, we have given it a complete "overhaul", including a new name, new branding, new website (launches at the end of the year) and the latest addition of instructional courses and tutorials to our product line (coming soon, I promise). OH, and did I mention we also have a BRAND-NEW ART STUDIO?!!... I told you I have a WONDERFUL HUSBAND!!

Thank you for stopping by and taking a scroll through my shop of "new beginnings"! I have a heart for people and beautiful things. Creating, teaching others & bringing beauty to your world is my passion! Please, DO NOT hesitate to message me with any questions.

My door is always open, so come on in and stay awhile!!
XOXO, Staci

Frequently asked questions
Why do some listings show several in stock, but the descriptions say it is a "made to order" item?

Almost all of my items are "Made to Order", but the listing for them shows 5-6 in stock. I do this for a couple of reasons:
1.) In order for customers to use one of my "BUY MORE, SAVE MORE" discount codes, I have to list the inventory for that item at the maximum number that applies the discount code. For example, to use a 20% off code for buying 5-6 crown candle pins, that listing must show at least 6 crown candle pins in stock.
2.) Etsy charges me a fee every time I have to relist an item. If an item shows that there is only 1 in stock and someone purchases it, I must pay another fee for that particular item to be listed in my shop again.

SHIPPING TIME FOR TRASH CANS

ALL OF MY ITEMS ARE BUILT AND HANDMADE. Different items require different amounts of time to construct. THE SHIPPING FOR TRASH CANS CAN TAKE UP TO 2 WEEKS. We build each trash can ourselves BEFORE adding the custom finish. We do our best to keep some pre-built cans in stock, but sometimes that just isn't possible due to high demand. Building the can from scratch, plus the time it takes to apply the multi-layered, custom finish and then handcraft, paint & install each embellishment, takes me 1-1/2 to 2 weeks.

WHAT HAPPENS IF MY ORDER IS DAMAGED OR LOST IN THE SHIPPING PROCESS?

I take the preservation of my creations very seriously, which is why I go above and beyond normal standards when it comes to wrapping, protecting and packaging every item in all orders. While I take every possible precaution, I have no control of packages once they leave my hands. 🔴 I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST PACKAGES OR ANY DAMAGES TO PACKAGED ITEMS INCURRED DURING THE SHIPPING PROCESS. I WILL NOT OFFER REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES FOR ITEMS LOST OR DAMAGED IN SHIPPING. Should items/orders become lost or damaged in transit, it is THE BUYER'S RESPONIBILITY to file a claim with the shipper (UPS, USPS, FedEx) within 24 hours of the delivery.
