If there is one true characteristic of an entrepreneur, it is the ability to achieve victory over setbacks on your own terms. For Shannon Ingle, this spirit has helped her overcome a devastating MS diagnosis and bring a space filled with beauty and creativity for the whole community.
Coffee, Paint, Repeat is Meridian’s first blank space studio. Located in historic downtown, the studio serves as a popular event hall for workshops, fitness classes, weddings, baby showers, art shows, and photo shoots. It also serves as a co-working space and serene meeting area. Growing small businesses can even rent out the space as a pop-up location for their retailing needs on a day-to-day basis.
Because Ingle wanted to make the studio accessible to fit the needs of the whole community, patrons can rent the space for a day, or by the hour.
