Mum and Dad were wonderful at letting me a just be .....I had so much on my plate I just worked and worked. I was getting up nice and early to work on things for the website. Lots of pricing work to be done too as we've had a record month for enquiries and then about 8.30 I was heading up to Aberdeen.
Some months back we were contacted by this client in Aberdeen to give their main reception rooms a facelift. They had already had a paint effect but it was fairly dated having been done about 10 years ago. They had seen a fabulous finish that they liked in a friend's house in Portugal and had asked the friend what it was and had been told they weren't sure but it was Italian and expensive.
So began their search and after some heavy Googling had come up with Oikos Ottocento which is a product that we are trained to apply, working with the importers/distributors Leslie and Dave at Bluebell .
The client initially sent us images and sizes so we could give them an outline cost - here is the "before"
The client was happy with the initial costs so we arranged a site meeting to choose colours. As well as applying the Ottocento to 2 feature walls they asked us to redecorate the whole space so I did my usual colour consultancy and produced a scheme.
Clients seemed thrilled with the idea but you never rest till the work is complete. They were thrilled and because of that so are we. Here are some pics of the new look. I am hoping the client will send me some pictures of the rooms finished with all the furniture back in place

We stripped relined the wall stencilled with two colours of very pretty metallics and then glazed over the top...you can't tell it was ever damaged.

I was in working at another long term client who we've done lots of fun projects for The Bathroom Company in Perth. They have just jooshed up their website to match their stunning showroom. The showroom is in the running for 2 national awards
The Bathroom Company is delighted to be the only Scottish bathroom showroom to be a finalist in the KBB2011 Industry Awards. Even more exciting they’re the only company in the UK to be shortlisted for both these awards.
