Patience is a virtue

Re-decorating uses enough of your patience, without having to wait for delivery dates to come, hoping the  measurements are right, the colors are right, and do I really like this in here?  When I was younger, I was redoing a room in my parent’s house.  Everything was ready to be set, but I was waiting on the wallpaper.  first the order didn’t go through, then re-order, then back-order, then finally, forget it.  I started painting.  It was a black and white room with toile, circus stripes, and crisp white lines.  I started to paint a mural off a book cover I liked.  After taking is easy over three months it was finished at 7 feet tall and 14 feet wide.  I am happy that in that instance my patience had ran out.  Now that room is personal and one of a kind.  Take that into consideration before you call me for some decor restore.  We’ll add your personal touch, and make it your favorite room in the house.

Complete!!!  there is about 5 more feet to the left, and 3 more of the mural to the right of the photo.
