Thought I was on a roll getting this year's projects done, but my painter didn't show up today. (And he's the one who suggested Saturday ... twice in the course of our conversations.) A tad aggravating since my knees took it on the chin (so to speak) getting it set up, especially bringing out the ladders. Obviously, if undependable, I'm better off moving on, don't you think?
But all is not lost! When buying all the supplies I commented upon my seeming inability to find someone willing to do the job (have been on the hunt for months), and the boss said for "next time" he had an excellent reference. So "next time" if I have any luck at all (keep your fingers and toes crossed) will hopefully soon become "this time".
I did have good luck getting this project done:
Out with the Old -
In with the New -
I've used this company twice before so no expectations shattered on this deal. They're actually kind of a hole-in-the-wall outfit but their carpets and crew are top notch!
This is the actual true color of the carpet (a tad more gold than other views):
And this porch plant is starting to bloom!
