Brilliance By Design - How We Began
Brillianceby Design - Affordable Counter-Top Re-Surfacing



BRILLIANCE BY DESIGN ~ Began when we started Resurfacing Counter-tops in May of 2010. However, we have been in the painting business since 1978 where we painted New Residential Homes and from there we were privileged to experience the painting of Commercial and Renovations South of Grand Ave. in Des Moines, Iowa. Also, painted a New 3 story apartment building in Indianola, Iowa. 

The renovations however, are where I found my niche and love for detailed painting!!

 In 2004 I attended a week long class in Omaha at Kelly King's Academy where I learned the art of Decorative and Faux Finishes using glazes, textures and many other mediums.

In 2012 we expanded our painting abilities once again when we discovered the beauty and joy of  restoring Antique Trunks. 

Which brings us to the current days when in May of 2013 we were experimenting with the new trendy "Chalk Paints" on our own Vintage Furniture  where then we were inspired to hunt, gather repurpose,  up-cycle and sell!! We have served the Central Iowa area as well as northern Iowa via shipping our goodness.
We currently sell out of our studio and online. We are able to accept cash-credit or debit for payment.

 With our years of experience, we know how to work efficiently with as little inconvenience to you as possible while still delivering a final product that surpasses your expectations. 
We thank you for the opportunity to keep doing what we love most!

Our professionalism, affordability and willingness to serve have helped us build a client base that knows that we do not sacrifice quality for price. 

From the initial consultation, to the last walk through, we keep you abreast of our progress, so you know exactly what we are doing and how much it costs.
