So thankful for Leslie Mitchem

I’m painting my window shutters today to match my front door and thinking how thankful I am for Leslie Mitchem who painted our front door and bathroom. They are both so beautiful!

S. Smith

Thank you for your time and thoughts.

Leslie, It was so lovely to meet you! Thank you again for your time and thought on our drapery rods. Your samples were beautiful and although we ultimately decided on an easier path of replacing the fascia, I will most certainly keep you contact information for future use! Have a wonderful Holiday.

Amazing artistry work

Thank you Leslie Mitchem and Stephanie Jones at Absolutely Faux for all the amazing artistry work you did for Jesus and Easter at Grace. Beautiful work! All come see!

You two are AMAZING!

Dear Leslie and Stephanie,

I want to take this opportunity to tell you both how overjoyed I am with the painting, staining and faux painting you did in my new kitchen and family room! Your designer’s vision, insight into my personal style and needs, and the incredible skill at your craft yielded absolutely beautiful results! You two are AMAZING!

You painted the walls in several rooms without spilling a drop, my new French doors were stained perfectly to match the dark wood of the kitchen island. And you literally saved me hundreds of dollars by “repurposing” and faux painting my existing tables – to perfection! I love my redecorated kitchen and family room!

Everything is simply beautiful – and absolutely perfect!

Thank you again,

Dana Thiesse

Thank you!
