Painting started out as just a fun hobby for me (I’ve been painting for over half my life), but it developed into a thriving passion about 8 years ago.
Before painting full-time, I was a hair stylist in my own salon. All of my hair customers knew I loved to paint and decorate, and we'd spend most of their appointment chatting up the different things that interested us.
Before I knew it, more and more of my hair clients were asking me for paint color suggestions, guidance on painting their own homes, and any hacks I’d discovered along the way. Painting By Kayla Payne LLC -- my local painting company in small-town northwestern Arkansas -- was born.
Slowly, I began helping others tackle their home painting projects and before I knew it, my schedule was SO full of painting jobs that I had to make the hard decision to let one career go. I loved doing hair, but I found my passion in painting!
Soon the realization hit that not everyone could afford to spend the money to hire a specialized professional cabinet painter. People felt stuck. They couldn’t afford to hire it out, but the only other options were:
1) to live in a home they were SO dissatisfied with
2) try to do it alone without the proper knowledge (you know, following bad online advice from very NON-painters), running the risk of being majorly disappointed with their results, and in the end, costing WAY more money to have someone to come in and fix the mistakes.
Something was missing -- I wanted to fill that gap. That’s why I created this course. Training geared to teach the average homeowner with no prior painting experience how they can paint their own cabinets, save loads of money, AND have the beautiful home they long for.
It all comes down to this: I'm passionate about cultivating a budget-friendly, beautiful home where we can fully enjoy our space and who we share it with. I believe that home should evoke feelings of comfort and safety. It should inspire and rejuvenate us. And I believe you CAN have that for yourself. All it takes is a little grit, a bucket of paint, and someone to guide you to success
