I told you would be back soon.
Ok, I wanted to talk about a very cool project I did a few weeks back. Kay, one of the best customers I’ve ever had wanted me to fix up a Family photo thing she had in her kitchen.
She had put together this beautiful collection of family pictures with a lot of words in between, like…FAMILY, LOVE, Devotion. The only problem is she used stickers, she loved everything about it, but the stickers. The stickers just didn’t look good on the wall, you could see the sticker part and just wasn’t what she wanted it to look like.
Kay called me and I went over to see what the problem was, she was right, it was beautiful, well, everything but the stickers. The word part was fine, it’s everything around the words that didn’t look good.
I told her this is going to take awhile to get right, for one thing, she didn’t want me to change anything with the arrangement, she wanted everything just like she put it together just get rid of the stickers.
I had to:
1. Take pictures, to make sure everything looked the same, after I was done.
2. Make stencils of the stickers without removing them from the wall.
3. pull the sticker off, use the stencils to put the words back where they were.
4. Paint the words in the same color has the stickers, remember, she wanted everything the same, even the colors of the stickers.
So, I had to do each word at a time.
In the end, it came out amazing. I did talk her into changing a few colors, but other than that, it looked exactly the same.
It looked so much better when I was done. It was a kind of a slow, painful process, but I think it was worth it.
For those who actually read this, I have the stencils so if you like something like it, just give me a call.
To me, it’s looks way better than just throwing some family photos on the wall. It personalizes everything and makes it own.
Anyway, this more of a person journal than blog, but if you do read it, thanks for taking the time.
I hope I can paint something amazing for you.
