With the Nio’s@917 Restaurant opening date looming, Martin assembled a team of faux finish professionals from across the country to assist in the project. These 12 talented professionals all had previously trained at The Faux Finish School® in Louisville, and were strategically selected for the project based on their skill and knowledge.
