About Janie Reeves

Decorative Painting, Faux Finishing, and Wallpaper Hanging Experience

Janie Reeves, C.P. graduated with an Associates degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) in New York, and continued to the University of Maryland where she earned a Bachelors degree in design. After working in retail management and sales, and becoming a mother, Janie’s interest in old homes and paper hanging led her to start a business in interior design and finishing.

Wallpaper and roll and brush painting didn’t answer all interior design challenges, so, gradually, Janie added decorative painting techniques to her repetoire. Her curiosity about old world finishes and the desire to improve her skills led Janie to classes at schools and studios throughout the United States studying under Master painters from the U.S. and Europe.

She attended The International Salon of Decorative Painters. Janie has displayed her work at the Salon and was later invited to attend as a member, a recognition held by only a few decorative painters worldwide.

Janie is also a member of The Occupational Advisory Council for painting at the Lancaster County Career and Technology Center Brownstone Campus, International Decorative Artisans League (I.D.A.L.), and Wallcovering Installers Association (W.I.A.).

Membership in all these organizations aids in the continued education of skill and technical knowledge that benefits every Design 2 Finish project.

From cottage to castle, your project couldn’t be in better hands.

“Good interior finishing isn’t an accident… it is designed.

Design 2 Finish isn’t just a job for me, it is a passion. Education, training, skill and industry knowledge all come together to give you the finest in custom applications.

To all my valued clients: Thank you for entrusting your home to me.

To prospective clients: Welcome to a world of beautiful possibilities.”
