It's all about possibilities . . .
When Maureen contacted me about her kitchen, I was hesitant. She didn't want her cabinets painted. In fact, she hates her cabinets. She hates her whole kitchen. What she wanted was a quick refresh to cheer up her space until they get to totally gutting their kitchen and utility space in the next year or two.
AND there was wallpaper. 80's wallpaper that was original to the house. I decided to give it a shot. Talk about a learning curve . . . (think nosebleed seats). I learned a lot. The biggest thing I learned is I am NOT a painter of walls or a remover a wallpaper. I will be finding someone local who is so I can recommend them in the future.
Still, I think the transformation is a good one. It will certainly hold this family through the transition to a new kitchen. Everything feels updated and brighter and the 80's wallpaper is gone. I'm so happy I took this job - I just regret how long it took and it most definitely highlighted skills I need to work on. Maureen and her husband, Tim, are kind, lovely people with an awesome dog, Rosie (who I already miss). I appreciate that they gave me this chance to work in their home.
I think everyone is happy with the results. For me, it's been another adventure in learning what works and what doesn't. It's yet another reminder that photography is learned skill and I should practice it more.
