Welcome to Sophie’s Fine Gifts and Decorative Paint Studio located in the heart of Historic Downtown Chickamauga, Ga. In July of 2010, we purchased an early 1900’s building to start a 25 year dream. With a lot of help and labor, we totally renovated this old girl to a beautifully revived store inside and out. Nine years later, our store has evolved into a destination for locals as well as tourist. We pride ourselves in curating the best gifts for any and all occasions.
Clay, most know him as my husband, joined our team and opened the Decorative Paint Studio 5 years ago. We, the team, call him “The Furniture Whisperer”. He takes one look at a piece and knows exactly what color it should be or if it should be painted at all. In the studio, we offer advise and experienced training on the use of matte decorative paints. If painting is not for you but you want the look, we offer custom painting of your own pieces. Other services offered by the studio, include but not limited to are: repair and/or restoration of antique furniture, cabinet painting and cabinet renovations, instillation of under counter lighting, addition of cabinetry crown mold and complete kitchen build outs.
We recently added Jolie Paints by Jolie Home. Jolie Paints is a matte decorative paint made from the highest quality ingredients. We have tried and used many decorative paints, and we (especially Clay) feels this is by far the best paint on the market. In his words, “the paint makes the job”. We are excited to be on the ground floor with this wonderful company and we are certain that you will obtain the best results with their products. The paint bar is open daily for your viewing and sampling.
Nine years and counting! We welcome you: family, friends, acquaintances, and visitors to our store to enjoy and experience what we have come to love. Sophie’s Fine Gifts & Decorative Paint Studio!
