Salem painter flips for A&E renovation show

SALEM — Brooke Cambridge has been painting houses for 14 years and started her own business, BLC Painting, seven years ago, employing a crew of four. Now she’s making her television debut in three upcoming episodes of “Flipping Boston,” a new show on the A&E cable network that is co-hosted by Peter Souhleris of Boxford.

The episodes were shot in Salem, Danvers and Lynn and will air Feb. 23, March 2 and March 9.

Cambridge, 32, grew up in Falmouth, Maine, and moved to the North Shore about 10 years ago. She is also a talented hockey player and once tried out for the women’s Olympic team.

Cambridge has worked hard to develop a competitive edge and credits her dog, Toby Sage, who appears in her company logo, with helping to develop the company’s positive image. Cambridge chatted with The Salem News recently about her business and the show.

How were you chosen for “Flipping Boston”?

We got a phone call out of the blue. They did a Google search, saw our website and liked it.

What’s unique about your website?

The logo stood out — it’s my dog, my yellow Lab with a paintbrush in her mouth. It set us apart, makes it more personal, says we’re friendly, that kind of thing.

Who designed the logo?

Myself and one of my best friends, Donnie Baker, a graphic designer.

What’s the show about?

It’s a flipping show, renovation. We come in and do the painting work for the project that they are flipping or renovating. We did a condo in Lynn, and Pete (co-host Peter Souhleris) owns a pizza shop in Danvers, Pete’s A Place — we did interior and exterior for that.

What did the pizza place look like after you were done?

It’s very bright, very dramatic, a lot of cool logos. We spiced it up from what he had previously in there, gave it kind of a new, modern look.
