Description Of Work:
Alyson Smith, Lady with a Paintbrush was hired to do the following:
1. Faux the ceiling in our Foyer
2. Faux the ceiling and column in our Kitchen
3. Apply 2 coats of polyurethane to all previously fauxed cabinets in our Kitchen and Keeping Room
She did complete the job for the faux work on our Kitchen ceiling and column only.
In August 2012, Alyson Smith charged us over $4000 to faux paint our foyer ceiling and apply 2 coats of polyurethane to our recently fauxed kitchen cabinets. HOWEVER. she didn't complete the work and unfortunately, we paid her the total amount in good faith. She has not come back to address any issues that still exist with the ceiling nor has she finished applying the 2 coats of poly to the kitchen.
My husband and I have repeatedly requested her to return to finish the work and she keeps scheduling with us and then canceling on the same day. We are so incredibly frustrated with Alyson and would never have her back in our home, but we ridiculously paid her in full and she won't return the amount of money for the unfinished work.
She is completely unprofessional as well as strung out on some type of medications which have compromised the quality of her work. On the last occasion when she stopped by to try to finish her the job, she was so dazed she fell in our garage. We told her repeatedly to leave, but she wouldn't insisting she was going to complete the work. The result was a bigger mess in our kitchen. She was supposed to come on 12/5/12 to correct her mistakes, but canceled again last minute. We have no idea if/when she will return.
Issues with Alyson Smith have been going on since the end of August and it is completely ridiculous that it is now December and nothing has been completed nor resolved. I would very strongly advise against hiring Alyson Smith, Lady with a Paintbrush!
