Monica Mercer is the founder and CEO of Brush Up Restoration and Decor.  She has a passion for seeing old things made new and believes that every piece has the potential to become something better than it ever was.  She began painting and restoring furniture in 2015.  She was invited to attend a class with a friend and absolutely fell in love with painting furniture.  She began to paint as a hobby and then was asked by her daughter to paint a farm table.  After she finished that piece, she realized that this was a passion she wanted to pursue full time.  Monica attended several more classes and became a General Finishes Certified Retailer and a retailer for DIY PAINT. She is married to her husband Mcallister, has three beautiful daughters, two son-in-laws, and two amazing grandchildren.
