Where it All Began
Brushed Monkey was founded in 2007 out of Donnie’s garage. As you can imagine, we very quickly outgrew the cramped space. Since the beginning Donnie has curated his team in an unconventional and inspired way, hiring true artists and teaching them the skills to become contractors.
We are not just painters, we are artisans.
From there, Brushed Monkey never looked back. Over the last twelve years, Donnie's vision has cascaded into an award-winning, person-focused team. Together we have built a painting business unlike anything else in Minnesota. Our expert crew’s skills go far beyond perfectly painting your walls. We create beautiful faux finishes, fine venetian plasters, and the most breathtaking custom murals.
