Melissa is the owner of Very Violet Boutique. The name Violet is from her beloved grandma Violet, who lost a battle with cancer. Violet was a kind and creative lady, who is missed dearly. Melissa started her creativity a few years ago in the West Bottoms.  She loves taking a worn out piece of furniture and giving it new life. She loves using the Amy Howard One Step Paint because of its durability and Sweet Pickins Milk paint for the fabulous color choices, She has gone through a series of Amy Howard Paint classes, taught by the wonderful Amy Howard. She loves to share her love and knowledge of the paint with you all.  Check out the Class Schedule on Facebook under events or on here as we have a moment to post them..

Our upstairs gathering space can be rented out for your next gathering for up to 40 people. It is upstairs and no elevator, so you and your guest must be able to walk the stairs. To inquire please stop by the shop or email owner at
