Last week 8 women gave up 5 days and substantial cash to invest in their faux finishing education. The goal for most of them is to start a successful decorative painting business that provides both a creative outlet and an income. We share this goal. As we've always said, "If You are successful-We are successful." Believe me, it is always in the back of my mind when I design any class. If you don't sell the finish, we don't sell you the product. You don't get jobs and we don't get repeat students. On nature shows that is called a symbiotic relationship. Think of the Lamprey and the Shark. I will let you decide if we are the shark or the lamprey.
Putting aside the Wild Kingdom analogies, every time I teach Designer Walls 1 there is excitment over the accomplishment (27 boards in 5 days), admiring individual artistry, and hopefulness that their first job is waiting just out our door. This is our longest and most intense class but I've used Designer Wall 1 finishes collectively in more homes then finishes from any other class. The range is infinite just by slightly changing a color from sample to sample.
So congratulations to our Summer 2010 Designer Wall 1 Graduates. May your faux dreams bring you real success!
