ABOUT JANIE: 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.

We hired Design 2 Finish as an alternative to replacing our wood kitchen cabinets during a recent kitchen renovation. Janie was very helpful with sample panels and advice on color/finish and completed the project professionally and in a timely manner just prior to the holiday season. The finished cabinets are beautiful. We highly recommend Design 2 Finish as an alternative to replacing kitchen cabinets during a kitchen remodel.
We call Janie whenever we need to start a construction or decorating project at our home. She has done quite a few projects throughout our home over a 15 year period including hanging wallpaper, stenciling walls, creating a faux marble finish on a wood mantle, painting a ceiling medallion, and painting a mural. She has stained and finished wooden bead board, painted exterior shutters, and painted walls and ceilings. All of this has been done expertly and with professionaism. Janie has helped with design in a number of projects and her advice has made it possible to wade through the sea of options to find exactly what we wanted. We give our highest recommendation to Janie.

Janie Reeves, of Design 2 Finish, is a consummate professional! Her experience and talent shows through in all of her work. I was fortunate to have Janie provide the beautiful wall & ceiling finishes for the Nursery in the Holly Manor Showhouse sponsored by Historic Ellicott City Inc.. Attendees were charmed by the ethereal trompe l'oeil sheer tenting, lattice trellis and woodland creatures that she painted to look over the nursery crib. Her creativity and quality workmanship are among the best. Her attention to detail and her delightful humor make her a joy to work with.....I would never hesitate to recommend her to any of my clientele!

It gives me great pleasure to write this review. Janie is a very talented and creative artist. Her professionalism in all aspects of her work has made it very comfortable for me to refer her to both residential and industry clients. One thing that makes it both easy and enjoyable to work with Janie is the flexibility she displays in working with and around the other trades. Janie’s attention to detail and respect for her workspace gives me the confidence to refer my high-end residential clients to her.
