Walls & More Decor is made up of a mother and son team, Marietta and Ryan Wells. Ryan builds the one-of-a-kind ideas that they come up with while Marietta paints and stains them. Together they turn cast offs into new creations as well as finding decor along the way to add to their booth. One customer described their style as "rustic elegance."
Ryan is a gifted musician who serves as worship leader at Fayetteville 1st Assembly of God Church. He moved to Springdale from Texas to help remodel a 100 year old home and in doing so found he had a gift for building and refurbishing.
Marietta and her husband, Rick, have served in full-time ministry for over 43 years. They are pastors of Fayetteville 1st Assembly of God Church. Marietta has a background in interior design and also serves as a licensed funeral director with Westfield Chapel Funeral Home in Springdale. One might think the combo is odd, but it's all about helping people in their time of need.
"I've always felt that interior design should be more affordable. All women love a beautiful home and I like to help them use what they have and add new pieces as they can afford it. If you can't afford a complete redo, and let's face it...how many of us can do that!?...you can rearrange, reinvent and repurpose what you have. Sometimes we can't see the beauty because we've lived with it 'that' way for so long. If you had asked me years ago about becoming a funeral director, I would have said 'no way!' However, due to the encouragement from friends I gave it a try. I found a ministry opened up to me that touched people when they are hurting most." - Marietta
While many of their items are one-of-a-kind, some can be duplicated. This adorable lemonade stand is one of Ryan and Marietta's latest creations. They are taking orders and will customize to height of child and color. Please contact Midtown Mall at 479-750-2987 for more info.
Walls & More is a creative outlet for both Ryan and Marietta. A great time spent together and also a little extra money on the side. It's all about fun and using what God gives them.
