Cabinet painting may seem like an obscure, niche hobby compared to a world-renowned pop star like Beyoncé. However, there are several reasons why decorating and repurposing old cabinets and furniture has become a widespread crafting phenomenon that arguably rivals Beyoncé’s fame and popularity.[Read more…]
As 2 Cabinet Girls continues to grow, lots of things seem to get more complicated. One thing that I refuse to allow to get left behind is an unbending commitment to clear, concise communication with our customers. Our goal is to have every customer say, “That was the best experience I’ve ever had!”
We’ve all probably had a less than amazing experience with a contractor. Usually, contractor problems stem from bad communication. In fact, most problems in life are communication problems. When the plumber tells you, “I’ll be by next week”, but won’t get more specific. The electrician who says, “I’ll swing by tomorrow morning.” and then shows up at noon.[Read more…]
All we do is cabinet painting. Every hour of every day we sweat the small stuff about how we can get better at cabinet painting and customer service.
Occasionally we’ll hear back from someone that we previously quoted and they talked to a regular house painter who gave them a price they couldn’t refuse.[Read more…]
We know that sometimes people make a decision based on a small amount of money. We once heard that we lost a job because another painter quoted the homeowner $20 less! We heard that story when they later called us in to fix that job a few months later.
We hate the idea of you choosing a cut-rate painter for the most important and visible room in your home. In an effort to help even more homeowners in the Triangle see their dream come true, we’re going to try something crazy – Price Matching.

You can read more on how simple touch ups can sell your home.
I have learned that the real secret of a company’s secret sauce is that there really isn’t any secret sauce. With remarkable regularity, the best stores attract the most customers and the best-selling products are a combination of value and quality.
I’m lucky, my husband has been working on the web since 1995 and has been helping big brands with their digital marketing for the past 10 years. So when my little business received a 1-star review from Yelp, he reminded me that it’s not the end of the world.
When we started this venture, it was my friend and I painting my neighbor’s cabinets in my driveway. I never thought it would grow over the next few years to include 15 people and 2 crews booked three months out. With that success, I’ve learned some important lessons.
Mostly what I’ve learned is to make sure I keep the homeowners in the loop at every step and set expectations as clearly as possible. I believe that not over-communicating is where my negative Yelp review came from.
