I see I’ve been a bit remiss about my posting since the 4th of July holiday! Well, sometimes Life just gets in the way and there just are not enough hours in the day. Today, I am spending some time in my home office, catching up on mounds of paperwork and phone calls, so I thought I’d take some time to update my blog.
Right after the holiday I returned to this project to add the border around the insert of the panels. I used a green metallic on this vanity and a blue metallic on the cabinetry in the Play Room. Oh, I also sealed everything.
Here you can see a close up of one of the panels before the blue was added, and after. The decision to add the border was the home owner’s and I think she was right on with this idea! It really made the panels “pop”!
I ended up really liking this project in the end and having a lot of fun. I will miss this cute little couple!
Next, I returned to the Beacon Hill Job. This client decided she would like a few more leaves added to my trees and some more pearls in the bathroom.
I love this shot! Are those Lipstick Towels too cute?!! I did not do those. The home owner had them in there when I arrived to add more pearls. She is away again, since this is not her permanent residence. If you recall, I had just done the large strand of pearls, all around this small bathroom. I added the smaller pearls and that strand of pearls you see here. I used a strand of pearls for my model that my Mom had given me some time ago, that used to be hers.
Here’s a longer shot of the room. When I returned to this home a few weeks ago to discuss the work, I brought her a mirror I thought would look great in this room. She had asked me to be on the look out for something special. Well take a look at this one! Could it be more perfect?
You’re going to have to look closely because the frame from the skylight window is reflecting in the mirror. Right where the frame is, you will see a little Crown, with pearls and “diamonds” embedded. When you look into the mirror, the crown sits on your head! That’s my hand there, taking the picture. I would have showed you the Crown on my own head, but I was having an extremely bad hair day due to the very high humidity and did not want to frighten anyone.
I emailed this client some pictures with the new additions and she sent back a very lovely, heartfelt thank you. That made my day because I am experiencing a lot of grief from Ms. Control Freak again at the Apartment Complex/Clubhouse Commercial Job.
Ms. Freak was supposed to contact me no later than Tuesday of this week to let me know if I have access to the walls in the Clubhouse. Marc was on that job site on Tuesday and said they were ready and the only issue would be if the 2 bathrooms were having the vanities installed, then I could not work in there. There are other areas I can be working on though. I had told Ms. Freak I had today and Friday on my schedule to begin that work. When I arrived home last evening, still no word from her. I sent an email off to her supervisor outlining her lack of communication and letting him know she is delaying the progress of my work. I had already explained to her that this was the only window of opportunity during July for me to be able to work at this site. I have other work booked now for July and will also be away for 5 days at the SALI convention in SC. I asked her supervisor to call me to discuss scheduling. So far today, no word from anyone at this company. I will fill their time slot with another job by the end of today and take them off my schedule until they can get their act together.
