A creative do-it-yourselfer saves a ramshackle house and uses it to test her dream of becoming a painter.
When Lisa Nelthropp moved into her ramshackle home on New Hampshire’s
Lake Winnipesaukee, a deteriorated shamble awaited her. With a little
ingenuity and a sharp eye for a bargain, this former cake decorator
transformed her eighteenth century headache into both a photo-friendly
home and showcase for her talents in mural arts.
Lisa’s training at The Institute of Surface Design and passion
for specialty painting awoke a slumbering talent. She debuted her
successful faux finish business five short months after the completion
of her first hallway mural, and hasn't looked back since. Learn
how Faux Like a Pro’s classes gave her the confidence and skills
to go from DIY-er to highly sought artist.
