I spoke with a woman in Florida who is interested in opening a retail faux finish and paint store. What I find interesting about this is that she has never worked behind the paint counter before. Her background is in specialty faux finishes, and she wants to have a retail presence in her growing market.
This is not the first time I have talked with women who want to see things done differently, or come from outside the industry.
Just look at Colori Paint in Chicago. It's styled more like a boutique than a paint store.
I am going to Michelle's store next week in Chicago - she is having a party to celebrate the color RED. How cool is that? My friends at Winslow Paint are another example (my apologies to Ken!)
