Just repaired and decorated a room in a large old house in Richmond. The place was in disrepair with a lot of cracks in ceilings/walls and a disturbing amount of paint peeling off the walls. The client absolutely insisted on using the dreaded Farrow&Ball paint. She was spending £100s on the paint, but tried to keep the decorating labour cost to a minimum. Despite being shown F&B's pitiful covering power and inability to cover undercoated and pva'd repairs, the client refused to pay for the time it would take to properly prep the surfaces and paint the extra coats needed to get a 100% flat finish- or to use a modern paint. I now understood that previous decorators must have cut corners [prep] because of pressure to finish within the budget allowed, resulting in the eventual peeling of the expensive aspirational topcoat. I threw extra time and effort at the job to show what could be achieved and the client loved the finish- just wouldn't pay for the necessary labour. I took what money was offered and moved my gear out. I will be working elsewhere in future!
I built this site using a bOnline template and maintain/update it myself with help on the tech stuff from helpful bOnline webmasters. They sort out the mysteries of Search Engine Optimisation [SEO] in order to make the site more visible on the internet and I then 'update' with news and pics as much as possible to attract everyone's attention so that you get in contact and give me lots of lovely work!
I get approached by numerous web companies who would love to charge me a lot of money for doing this but I am determined to do as much as possible myself to keep costs [and my prices] down...
*So if you appreciate my work, then passing on the 'good word' to your friends and writing a nice review on my Google+ page or yell.com page would be greatly appreciated..every little bit helps!
