Michele
Owner & 
Furniture Restorer

I LOVE to read!
Painting furniture is both an addiction and a relaxation method!
I’ve met Annie Sloan!
I have my Bachelor’s in History. Who knows why.
I have a Master’s Degree because I needed to defer my student loans and the best way to do that was to go back to school.
The first three years of knot too shabby allowed me to pay off ALL my student loans!
Our family motto is, “we are not a sports family.”
Virtually my entire life revolves within a three mile radius.
I do everything in my power to avoid the 210 freeway.
I HATE shopping. HATE it.


Caitlin

Online Sales & Store Manager

Super fun, quirky and ambitious, Caitlin graduated from USC and started her own photography business…Killer Cupcake Event Photography! She is enormously talented! She takes amazing pictures and is a killer writer! You can catch a glimpse of her work by visiting our Etsy store or searching for our finds on eBay. I think one of the coolest things Caitlin has been involved with is her work in research and development with Marvel Studios! She was involved in the research for Thor, Captain America, and The Avengers. We are super lucky to have nabbed Caitlin for our online sales and merchandising! 

Kelly
Guest Artisan and Workshop Coordinator

Kelly started as one of our amazingly talented interns and dedicated over six months of her life to learning painting techniques and immersing herself into all things “knot too shabby” until we were in a position to bring her on as employee. That is DEDICATION! She has become an invaluable member of our team, lending her skills as an artistic, providing direction in visual displays and becoming our go-to person for custom chalkboard lettering orders. Kelly traveled to New Orleans to participate in the Annie Sloan Conference and attended a Chalk Paint® training workshop with some of the best painters in the industry. She is one of our best workshop instructors!

Trash Picker, Furniture Fixer & Fellow Diet Coke Junkie

I can thank my dad for my horrific Diet Coke habit, but he is the first to run and grab a soda for me before I start a shift! Dad is a converted yard sale and trash picking enthusiast. In the old days, when Mom and I used to go yard saling, Dad would stay at home and comment on how what we bought was gross. “Why would someone want another persons junk?” But, over time he would watch the “junk” I brought home be transformed into something entirely new and beautiful. And, he has since become a fellow picker…even from the trash. Dad has also taken some woodworking classes in the past few years and is accomplished at completing minor repair work on anything from dressers to chairs. Aside from helping at the store with Mom every week, Dad is a great Papa and loves hanging out with the girls when I’m working!
