Hi, I’m Brittany Pistole-Dunn.
I’m a mom, wife and creative entrepreneur from Moore, Oklahoma (yes, the city with all the tornadoes). As my friends and family will tell you, I have painted/re-designed anything and everything I could get my hands on since…forever. I started this business in a one bedroom, second-floor apartment when I was just 21 years old! People would seriously haul their furniture up a flight of stairs for me to paint, ya’ll! A couple years into my adventure with furniture, a dear client of mine expressed to me what an inspiration I am to women who hear my story and, well, who doesn’t like to inspire and empower women? So take a seat for some not-so-pretty (but totally amazing) details ahead. **Deep breath** …right to the nitty gritty…
I was 21, pregnant and stuck inside a real-life nightmare of a physically and mentally abusive relationship. I worked fast food and knew that I had to do SOMETHING to escape the life I was living in order to give my baby girl the life she deserved. How it happened, though, was completely unexpected! Long story short, I painted a dining table that my grandmother had given me (thanks, Nanny!) where I did not have one, showed it to my friends and co-workers and I quickly began receiving orders! I then scraped up the courage to move away and enrolled myself in a full-time college-level visual arts program just months before becoming a full-time, single mother. I was completely alone. It was the hardest thing that I have ever done in my 30 years and I wanted to give up too many times to count, but looking back on it all only fills me with an incredible sense of happiness and pride. I ended up quitting school before I ever got to anything juicy because the demand for my furniture BLEW UP! I quickly gained a 3-month wait list that turned into a 10-month wait list in no time!
Fast forward to present, I now have the most precious, loving, tiny assistant designer and happily married to the most amazing husband and father. He embraces my passion for art and design and empowers it with all his being. We now have a precious baby boy and paint TOGETHER taking our furniture nation-wide while I teach my online classes showing people just like you how to paint just like me! We have HUGE plans for Funky Furniture Facelifts!! I never imagined my passion and life-long dream would turn into my career. My life is happy and my heart is full. Most importantly, my daughter will always know the value she is to this world through the footsteps of her mommy.
