About Us
Karim Grace
Owner/Project Manager

After working over 15 years in the hospitality industry, I always had a desire to own a small business. Today, I am a mother, wife and a small business owner of Cabinet Paint by Design in Fairfax, VA. This business would not have been possible without the support of my husband who for a long while was my "installation specialist". I also thank our customers who have supported our business thru their patronage and referrals. Most importantly, I believe that God had this plan for me and have been grateful because it has opened up doors and opportunities I never dreamt before. This journey was certainly not easy for me but when you see the transformations and get the feedback from our customers then the challenges faced make this journey all worth it.


Moises "Moy" & our own version of McGuiver 
Shop Supervisor/Master Painter/Carpenter

Moy has been part of our team since 2018. His primary role is to manage the transformation of the kitchen cabinets in our shop.  He is an extraordinary professional who has mastered the art of painting which shows thru the excellent work he delivers for our customers. He has a passion for carpentry and we have slowly been exploring in this area giving our customers an opportunity to enhance their transformation with their kitchen cabinets.  

Project Assistant & Installation Queen

Yeni joined us going in 2018. Her focus is to ensure that jobs are coordinated between our clients and the crew. She is also part of the installation process ensuring that the completed job is met with success and satisfaction of our customers. Yeni has a talent for design which opens many possibilities to new avenues in our kitchen transformation and an area that would be very valuable to our customers as they embark in their renovation journey.

Interior Design/Color Specialist

Sarah joined our team in the Fall of 2020. Her level of expertise has added so much value to our work. Sarah meets for 1 hour with our clients to pick the best color choice for their kitchen cabinets but sometimes a client has plans to renovate more then cabinets in their kitchen and this becomes a great opportunity to tie in a full design consultation as we bring their vision to life.  

Office Assistant / Social Media Guru

Vanesa joined us in 2021. Her primary role is to assist us all in the administrative part of the business ensuring that we get estimates out on time, scheduling and marketing. You will also see Vanesa assisting the crew on site as well as she learns about our day to day operation.  Vanesa has great computer skills and is very familiar with social media and will be of great value to our small business in this era where social media exposure is key.

Installation Specialist/ Carpenter Apprentice

Marcos joined us in 2020 in the role of our Installation Specialist. Definitely a great addition to our team because he is detailed oriented and an important quality to have when putting back together our kitchen cabinet doors and drawers once the job has been completed. Marcos has shown interest in becoming our Stain Master so that we can offer more possibilities to our customers so he will be undergoing training to prepare him for this role.

Job Site Leader 

Walter join us in 2020. His primary role is to transform the base of the cabinets in the customers' home always ensuring that we provide quality finish. Walter also has to ensure that anything removed gets to our shop labeled and that we capture all the details that make the work complete. Walter has such a "yes" spirit that is a great quality to have and gives me the confidence to know our customers are in great hands.

Job Site & Shop Assistant & Rev-A-Shelf Expert

Rony joined us back in Summer of 2019 and worked for the season and then came back in the beginning of 2020. Rony fills many roles assisting others to get the job completed. Rony has a talent for technology and the ability to put together mechanisms that require patience and precision.  As we continue to explore on his talents we all learn a little more about him.

Quality Control Specialist & My Right Hand @ Home

Luz and I met working for the hotel industry in 2005. Then in 2016 when I needed someone to help me at home with my kids, I immediately thought of her because of her work ethics & the level of trust that I had in her from the beginning. In our journey is how she witnessed the birth of Cabinet Paint by design as an official business from day 1. While Luz's primary role is caring for my kids while I work. We also gradually saw a request to offer a complete service of degreasing & deep cleaning cabinets and this is an area where Luz is an expert in the field.
