Working for family is always fun. This project was a thrill as not only was it for a family member, but one that I don’t get to see during our regular Holiday shuffle. My uncle Vince’s office changed locations last summer and with the new office Vince wanted the materials used to have a meaning behind them. His company is Commodity Marketing Company which is an agricultural commodity trading company. This means that they trade all those ingredients that the animals love in bird seed, pet food, and animal feed. Vince brought meaning and history to his office by including reclaimed beams from a grain elevator in Minnesota – the state where he grew up. A living showcase of goldfinches resides in the foyer now to reenforce the heart of CMC’s office. The office also has a painting of the grain elevator in the town Vince grew up that was painted by my mom. This brings me to why I was chosen out of all of the surely talented faux finishers that reside in Georgia. Well, because we’re family and it adds another layer of meaning to the office’s space that I was able to install this plaster.

The warmth and personality of this authentic Italian plaster is far from the painted backsplash that existed in this space earlier. The color of this plaster is a beautiful Cafe Au Lait and flows effortlessly with Julie’s existing cabinets, countertops, and decor.
