What Our Customers Are Saying

As a go-to cabinet painting expert for designers, architects, builders, business owners and homeowners, we’ve done custom decorative and faux finishes projects across Indiana and the Midwest, and not just cabinets.

We could tell you how great we are all day long, but we thought it might be more fun if we let our actual customers have a say.


Sarah and Mets transformed my kitchen and family room with their wonderful talent.  Prior to their work, those areas in my home were dark and dated.  With their techniques, those rooms were given the look of custom cabinets from a high end manufacturer and did not look like they were painted on site.  Their assistance in consulting the best path for color, lightened the rooms to give them a totally new look but worked great with my existing furnishings and style.  I would not hesitate to contract Sarah and Mets again and have recommended them to all of my friends.


Shines Studios truly knows what they are doing.  They listen, and deliver great quality.  They gave us step-by-step expectations of how the process of painting our kitchen cabinets would go, and stayed right on target.  Their professionalism and courtesy is top-notch.  I'd definitely recommend their services to anyone who values quality workmanship and expects no less.


Wonderful people who just turned my kitchen into AMAZING!!


What a unique and exceptional product they deliver! My wife and I are truly happy with the work they did on our new home! Their artistry stands by itself!


What a talented and motivated team! Sarah and Mets are just the best. We have networked with them for a few years now and can speak to their artistry, craftsmanship and ethical business practices. Highly recommend!


Sarah is REMARKABLE in her professionalism, artistic expression, and service!


Sarah has done several different finishes for me as well as countertops and cabinet refinishing both at my home and at our professional offices.  We are extremely pleased with her transformation of our space(s) as well as the durability of her products. She is both professional and a truly gifted artist!  I would highly recommend her to anyone.


Sarah and Mets did an amazing job on our kitchen. We are beyond thrilled with the results, taking our drab yellow oak cabinets to beautiful white cabinets with a navy island. Sarah and Mets were extremely professional but also very personable. They listened to ideas that I had and implemented them beautifully. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone wanting to have their cabinets painted. They are very knowledgeable about the painting process and proper materials. I definitely trust their expertise. They do beautiful work!


Awesome people to work with, gave us ideas on adding details to cabinets we never thought of, always on time and did everything they said they would and done right on schedule, work was better than we expected!


Sarah and Mets have done phenomenal work in multiple rooms in our house.  They listened well to what we were trying to accomplish and offered outstanding suggestions that made the end product even better.  Cannot offer a higher recommendation!


Sarah is a gifted artist.  My husband and I have recently added 720 sq FT to our home plus a remodel of the kitchen and 2 existing bathrooms.  She came in and provided us with beautiful, durable countertops in all these areas, plus phenomenal wall finishes.  We chose a Tuscan break-away brick for the kitchen and metallic for 2 of the bathrooms.  She was very professional and had a positive influence in our home while working. We have recently begun purchasing rental property as well as owning our own professional services business.  I look forward to working with her again.


Shines Interiors installed a Brushed Silver paint treatment in our Master bedroom and also a concrete overlay tabletop on a Patio coffee table I made. Both jobs were done to perfection. And the price point was phenomenal. My wife and I couldn't any happier with the work that was completed.


“Shines Studio refinished my kitchen cabinets.  My cabinets were dated but structurally very solid.  Shines Studio  presented me with options on how they could be refinished to look more current.  I selected a rustic barn finish with new hardware and they came out absolutely beautiful!   This was much less expensive than refinishing the cabinets.  I get compliments on them all the time!


Sarah and Metz were awesome.  My old kitchen looks brand new with white painted cabinets and great hardware.  They were so easy to work with, their work quality was superb, all deadlines met with ease.  I would highly recommend them to anyone looking to update their kitchens without going to the expense of new cabinetry!


Sarah and Mets of Shines Studios are masters of their craft.  Each brings their unique talent and passion to each and every project they take on.  Their knowledge and experience with different paint types, processes and applications speaks for itself in the professional work they do.  Perfectionists to a fault, rest assured that this duo can pull off almost anything you can imagine and with beautiful results!!  I highly recommend.


This review is long overdue, because everytime I walk into my renovated kitchen I am thankful for the day I met Sarah and Mets @ Shines Studios!  They listened to my ideas, offered their professional recommendations, and were very patient when there were unexpected holdups with other service people.  They did amazing work, and were attentive to detail... all while getting my cabinets painted in an expedient manner.  I can't wait to have Shines Studios back again!


Shines Studios came to me on the recommendation of another professional who said my job was too big for him.  It is the best thing that ever happened to me!  They are creative, open to new ideas, full of experienced advice and very conscientious and dependable.  Their workmanship is as fine as I have seen.  My historic four-over-four brick home was built in 1860 and every interior wall is solid brick 10-12 inches thick.  The original plaster was made with horsehair.  They removed 5 layers of wallpaper, caulked and sanded every crack and crevice and brought this old home back to it's original glorious quality.  A highly respected interior designer based in San Francisco toured my home and was "blown away" by the quality of Sarah and Mets' workmanship on the classic woodwork and walls.  I would recommend Shines Studios for the most  elegant and important homes anywhere even though they are down to earth people who enjoy a simple job as much as a notable one.  Through continuous interaction on site we have become really good friends.


Sarah and Mets did a fantastic job on our kitchen cabinets. They are very professional and work efficiently. They were a joy to have in my home for the short time they were here. Highly recommend and will definitely call on them again for more work.


Shine Studios has completed several jobs for me and have done an excellent job.  Their attention to details and getting the job done right is incredible.


I have used Shines Studios for many jobs including several complete kitchen cabinet painting/refinishing projects, various vanity projects, furniture makeovers as well as painting walls when I need someone who really knows what they are doing.  Their faux painting and stenciling projects are a work of art!  They are always friendly, responsive to the clients needs and completely reliable.  They are true artisans and my go to when I need anything transformed.


Their professionalism and expertise is un matchable! I absolutely recommend them. They  transformed my 1950's looking kitchen. The finish is velvety smooth and very durable and washable. Always prompt!


Sarah and Metts refinished my fireplace facade. I searched all over my area to find a ocntractor that did faux finishing. They came to my house for a consult with a portfolio of finishes to choose from. I knew I had found the ones to restyle my fireplace! I was so comfortable with them to be in my home even when I was not home! The finished results were perfect! Thank you Sarah and Metts for your professional eye and great expertise!


My kitchen was pretty before but very dark with cherry cabinets.  Now it doesn't even look like the same kitchen.  It is bright and beautiful!  The copper effect (paint)  on the island hood gives it a very unique and eye catching feature.


These two are the BEST!  From start to finish, (and even after!) ... so helpful, kind, hard-working, reliable... seriously, I hope to be able to work with Shine Studios again.  Sarah and Mets refinished my kitchen cabinets from dark brown to white.  My new cabinets are so beautiful!  Working with these two was a great experience!


We hired Sarah and Mets to refinish our kitchen cabinets. We found them through Houzz and from the moment we contacted them until the last detail was completed... we could not be happier that we contracted them for this project. There are probably many people and companies out there that can refinish cabinets, but it is their attention to all details that truly sets them apart. Their workmanship was near perfect and any small imperfection was quickly addressed. So in the end, we had a brand new kitchen. To quote my husband... our cabinets look like they have a factory finish - or perhaps even better! In addition to Sarah and Mets being outstanding at their craft, they are genuinely nice people!  I would highly recommend them to anyone!
