This was a very exciting and unique job. I was approached by a friend of mine who’s parents were leaving town for the weekend to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary. She provided me with a budget and trusted me and my painter to come in over the weekend and do the following:
-Paint and Redecorate Guest Room and Bath using existing and new furniture and accessories.
-Paint Kitchen, Living Room and Main Level Bath & ReDecorate all.
-Furniture and Accessory RE-Placement throughout the Formal Sitting Room & Formal Dining Room
As we stood inside, eagerly waiting their return, she and her husband finally drove up to the house. As they were away celebrating, they had no idea what was going on in their home. As she opened the door, I greeted her. She said, “Who are you?”
I laughed and said, “I’m the decorator!”
As she looked around her “new” home, her mouth dropped wide open. She didn’t say a word.
Honestly… I thought she hated it. But I remained silent hoping this wasn’t the case…
After walking through her entire home, which had been drastically changed, she decided to take a seat in her new chair in her newly decorated guest room and with tears in her eyes she said,
“I love it. I am so glad you did this. I can finally invite family to stay with us knowing they will feel welcomed and comfortable.
Thank you so much.”
Then I cried. 🙂 Because this client is EXACTLY why I do this.
It makes people happy and have a sense of pride in their home.
Happy Client 🙂 Mission Accomplished.
