Cindy Norris and her company Faux Paws, in one word - AMAZING! My husband and I met Cindy at a workshop she was teaching. We went home, did some "faux" on our walls, and later on down the line hired Cindy to come to our new home and consult with us. She understood where we wanted to go immediately...even though my husband and I weren't entirely sure how to communicate what we wanted (for example - my husband literally told her he wanted a finished look to be "uniformly un-uniform". If I were her I would have ran for the hills). She brought sample boards and really walked us through everything. My husband and I quickly fell in love with Cindy and her work. After faux painting practically our entire main floor (approx 3500 sq ft of the over 4000 sq ft) we have brought Cindy back in for several projects. She has always brought creative, new ideas and processes to our attention to help us achieve the kind of look and feel we want. She has painted our ceilings with metallic paints, done a venetian plaster-type treatment in our sun room, distressed and painted our kitchen island, faux painted our mud room cabinets, stenciled designs on our kitchen hood...you name it, Cindy can do it. Whether or not you know what you want, Cindy has a talent in achieving it perfectly (my husband is probably THE most anal person and Cindy can do no wrong in his eyes). She has an incredible eye for color and design. As I said earlier, she has sample boards that she shows you so you know exactly what you are in for. She is her own worst critic and is a perfectionist - if anything were to be off with a color or something she would notice it before you would. In addition to being incredibly talented, she is prompt on everything she promises (sample boards, etc), honest, punctual and always fair. We are currently in the works to build another home and Cindy is our go-to artist to consult with - she is the only one we want working on our home. Obviously, I cannot say enough good things about Cindy. Her work is phenomenal and she is a great person to boot, can't get much better than that!
