Our story begins with a simple milk paint class which the future owner, Mary Wiersma, did not have any interest in attending. A friend did not want to attend alone and actually offered to pay Mary's fee. By the end of the class, the friend wanted nothing more to do with the mess and effort of painting furniture. Mary, on the other hand, fell in love with the idea of giving vintage, well-built furniture pieces a new life by transforming them to work with today’s design trends. In 2015 she officially went into business selling her hand painted furniture. In the years since, Painted Pieces has grown and now also offers high quality paints, brushes, stencils, small painted decor items and custom painting.
