Many people ask me how I got my start in the painting business, so I'll start from the beginning. My story begins with my grandfather, Ivar. He came to America carrying his toolbox in one hand and a small bag of clothing in the other. My grandmother always giggled as she said, he was such a cutie! After traveling to Minnesota, he worked as a carpenter for his brothers construction company. Have you been to the Riverview Theater? I grew up seeing movies there, not knowing that my grandfather helped build it! I never met my grandfather, but I did inherit his woodworking skills. I started refinishing furniture in high school, and then attended the two-year cabinetmaking program at Hennepin Technical College. I dont like to brag, but I was one of the best in my class. I know my grandfather would be proud of me. After completing the cabinet making program, I started my own business finishing furniture for a custom furniture shop. During that time, I was hired by the owner of the warehouse space where I rented to paint the offices and warehouses between renters. I quickly realized that estimating for a painting job was much easier that estimating furniture finishing! So I closed up my furniture shop and started painting for a painting company. Unfortunately, my experience working for companies was not what I hoped for; one company raised the price based on the value of the home and the type of cars the homeowners drove, and the other painted the wrong colors on the walls, then blamed me for their mistakes. After a lot of thought and encouragement from friends I started my own painting business; Ivarson Interiors! I decided that I would run my company with honesty; I would not inflate my prices because the homeowners drove BMW's nor would I exaggerate my skill to get the job.
