Happy Fourth of July!

Happy Birthday to the U.S.A.!  I know it’s raining here and there, and the fireworks have been postponed, but I hope you have a wonderful holiday!  Just in case the party hasn’t started at your place or if you did manage to ferret out a dry spot on the beach, I found a few good […]

Radio Entrepreneurs Interview

A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of being interviewed by Jeffrey Davis at Radio Entrepreneurs.  His program spotlights entrepreneurs of “innovative and fast-moving” businesses.  It is an honor to be seen as such a business and to be a part of such  an inspired group. In the interview, I was able to share […]

Happy Summer!

It’s unbelievable!  With the start of summer, 2013 is already halfway over.  It’s a well-worn saying, but it’s true: time does indeed fly.  With that thought in mind, I have two pieces of advice for you.  First, enjoy your summer.  Squeeze whatever vacation, beach, cookout, hiking and relaxing time you can out of the next […]

Fourteen Years! Part Two

A few weeks ago, I began telling the story of The Larkin Painting Company’s early years.  We left off with me and Thiago sitting in my work truck unable to communicate with each other.  I paid him a day’s wages and told him as best as I could to come back the next day.  Despite […]

Fourteen Years! Part One

I am excited about this year because 2013 marks The Larkin Painting Company’s fourteenth year in business!  How quickly time has passed.  The journey from there to here has been amazing.  Looking back, I can hardly believe it.  People often ask how I got started, so now is a great time to share with you […]


Have you ever been relieved that mountains of clothes, shoes, or boxes of board games like Monopoly, Clue and Pente cover up your closets’ walls?   Because they are usually hidden behind doors, closets tend to be an afterthought when it comes to painting and refreshing your home.  They may not seem important due to being […]

The Cover of New England Home Magazine!

We are beyond excited over here at The Larking Painting Company.  We made the cover of the   January-February 2013 issue of New England Home!!  Yes, that news required two exclamation points!  Boston-based interior design company, Terrat-Elms, hired us to help them realize their vision for this Back Bay condominium.  It was a fun project because […]

Drawer Dilemmas

Ah, those kitchen, bathroom and bedroom drawers, what are you to do with them when they start looking dingy, scratched and scuffed?  Drawers can seem to be a such “little” thing.  However, it is “little” things like this that wear you down and alter the good feelings you have (or had) about your home.  How […]
