Someone once told me, find a job you love doing and you will never work a day in your life. I think we found that with ValynnK. We have a passion for creating beautiful one of a kind pieces. I would say our style is very eclectic, from warm to cool colors and everything in between. Each piece is a new story and another step on our journey. We truly put our heart and soul into each piece we create.
My Best friend and I (Valerie and Kaitlynn) created ValynnK in 2015 after going through rigorous remodeling of our homes. Kaitlynn created a shabby chic wonderland with cool blue colors, pink and purple flowers, bird cages and a chair that was re-purposed into a functional shelf. I went for a more rustic farm house look. My colors were warm and neutral with a pop of copper. I love the chalk board paint so I refinished my kitchen counter tops with it as well as one section on the wall as a menu board.
We had both refinished furniture for ourselves. Every time people would come over we always got complements on the pieces we redone. Some people started to ask us if we would refinish things for them. So with that, we figured we would do a few items and put them up online and see if they sell. And they did! So that is when ValynnK was born!
Starting out we did not have a work shop. We were literally painting out of our kitchens! There was paint in the attic, kitchen and wherever else we could store it. We had acquired such a large inventory we had nowhere to put the stuff. It was a struggle to say the least. And we learned a lot along the way. We are currently in the process of remolding a beautiful barn house work shop. Once it is completed I will post some pictures.
We on an amazing journey, and it is just the beginning!
