Themed Rooms

Themed Rooms or spaces can be as imaginative and creative as you can dream, or better yet, as Holly can dream! Does your child love fairy tales? Why not have Holly turn their room into a fairy tale dream land! Maybe you’re a fan of the beach, and you want your own personal beach-retreat in your bathroom. Holly can make it happen and with a price tag you’ll love. Persnickety dreams big when it comes to themed rooms. Through the use of recycled and repurposed materials, mixed media, one-of-a-kind finds and years of expertise, Holly creates remarkable spaces. If you’ve got an idea for a themed room, Persnickety can make it a reality!


Persnickety has a knack for turning trash into treasure. We recycle and repurpose many furniture and décor accessories by updating their appearance and functionality. Are you looking for a specific piece of furniture or décor item that you just can’t find? Persnickety can find the right item, at a bargain price, and update it to match your style. Or maybe you are wanting an entire, theme-based room, but you don’t even know where to get started or what you’ll need. Persnickety can with that too by reusing, repainting and repurposing to create a stunning, usable space you’ll love. The best part about our repurposed projects and themed rooms is that they save you money! We’ll never use unnecessary materials or waste even a drop of paint throughout the entire project. Why buy new when you can update the existing!


“Faux” refers to a variety of painting, plaster, cement and various other techniques that mimic the look of other materials like wood, marble, brick, metal, and stone and can be applied as a decorative finish to walls, furniture, exterior surfaces, countertops, decorative accessories and more. This is a great way to update a space without spending gobs of money. Rather than replacing a well-loved countertop or a worn out fireplace mantel, Persnickety can renew and transform them by using various faux techniques into the elegant statement piece you’ve always envisioned.


Persnickety offers consulting, classes and clinics for a variety of faux and repurposing techniques. Whether you’re just starting out as a DIYer, or you’re an expert looking to learn some new methods, we’re here to guide and support you in your DIY education. Our goal in teaching is for you to love faux painting and repurposing as much as we do!
