About us

Hi there!

This is Vickie Larue, the lady behind Paintthesis.com

‘Paintthesis.com’ is a blog dedicated to DIY painting and all things related. 

I started this blog to tackle the problem of the growing need for quality content on the Internet, mostly in the sphere of painting as I have years of experience in this field.

My goal here is to provide useful content for people who are seeking actionable information about interior and exterior painting, priming, furniture painting, acrylic painting, finishing touches, etc. I started this blog as a way to help beginner painters take the next steps by providing useful advice using the expertise that I have.

At the time of starting this blog, I went around a few online forums to see what types of questions people asked relating to home and furniture painting. Then I did some research online and discovered that there isn’t a lot of helpful information on the web.

That’s when I decided to start this blog to cover all the topics that are usually difficult to find on the internet. I try to publish articles that are easy to follow, clean, and concise. I also make sure that my research meets the experts and professionals in the field.

Hopefully, you will enjoy your time here going through my articles. I usually publish around 3 to 4 articles a week. If you have any suggestions about the type of content you want me to publish or just ask a question, feel free to email me: [email protected]

What do I do in My Free Time?

To make sure I am updated on recent innovations and changes, I enroll myself in various painting courses and workshops from time to time. Even if some of them are very basic, they help me understand the type of issues a beginner might face when they just get into their painting career. For example, I’ve recently completed a course named “Paint Pro Training” conducted by Sherwin Williams. There are nine modules, and each of them is individually evaluated. Here is the link to my certificates.
