Testimonials

  • Shirley Bade Duff — OCD is highly committed to there client and goes that extra mile to make sure you are satisfied. She took my bland contractor cabinets and made them something beautiful. She also repurposed a buffet that had water damage to the top. To look at this piece of furniture after she brought it into my home, you would think it had been originally manufactured this way.

  • Ashlie Allen Jones — I highly recommend Organize-Create-Decorate!! After attending a Paint Couture-Class 101, I can't say enough about Alicia and ALL that she taught us! We are all looking forward to booking our next class. The OCD Studio creates a wonderful atmosphere for painting. LOVE that it's a country setting tucked away and filled with all the sights and scents of the country! If you're considering attending a class, now's the time to book one! I PROMISE you won't be disappointed!!!

  • Margaret Daniels McConathy — Thanks to O-C-D I now have a beautifully decorated salon studio and have started taking The Paint Couture classes for education and inspiration! O-C-D is AMAZING!!
