It started as a family business with my mother-Beverly Coet, daughter-Meghan Munson, and myself-Melody Peacock Brooks, working together as three generations of artisans that created beautiful finishes. After a span of 50 something years of transforming clients homes with decorative finishes, (Meghan joined us in later years....she had to get big enough to hold a brush!), we decided for a change!
In 2012, we created Hoity Toity Peacock to combine our talents and focus on teaching Painting and Decorative finish techniques. With the high demand for painted furniture classes, we wanted something that would stand out. That’s when we discovered the Modern Masters Metal Effects line and it was love at first sight! After the first attempt at using the products, Melody wiped it off to start over. Her thought was she could do better and decided to experiment and the results were great! There was no turning back to just regular painted finishes!
The Metal Effects Patina classes became the most popular class that students requested. After a few years of traveling all over the USA and Canada teaching this class, we decided it was time to stay at home. Meghan has a husband and family, plus she is getting her degree in marketing, so she‘s in the background helping. Beverly is focusing on the wearable art, antiques and collectibles part when she isn’t digging and planting every square inch of the yard! Melody is busy creating original art and the patina finishes on just about anything that will stay still!
Our brick and mortar store has unique artisan pieces of furniture, antiques and collectibles, original art, jewelry and wearable art, home decor and many items that are one-of-a-kind. You now have the option of shopping in person or online! We will be offering online videos for teaching, since that seems to be the trend now, but will still have hands-on workshops hosted at the Hoity Toity Peacock studio in Brenham, Texas. Featured are not only our different workshops, but we will also host other artists teaching their techniques. Check our calendar regularly to see what’s coming !
