A Chat with Coastal Bohemian Inc.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Coastal Bohemian has 20 years experience in upcycling, painting, and repurposing furniture and home decor. Michele has a funky fresh imagination that will help your creative juices flow. We also offer studio time with our artist to help you recreate or put a new story into a piece.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Students need to bring a smock or painting clothes.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After Hurricane Sandy hit my home on Long Island, I couldn't bring myself to purchase new furniture. The pieces in my home were handcrafted by me. Painting, decoupaging, and using mosaics brought me back to a place I'd like to take my students—back to a place that brings out the inner artistic bohemian.
What do you love most about your job?
I love the comraderie that is built during the creative process, and I love being covered in paint. I think I was a struggling artist in another life. Hehe.
