A glimpse into the conversations in the house of a faux finisher…..
Me: “honey, will you hold my new faux sample up behind the chair please?”
Him: “like this?”
Me: “yes, but lower….”
Me: “and put it up right next to the woodwork.”
Me: “and now just a little lower to hide the light switch with it.”
Me: “there….now I can see it with the colors in the dining room.”
Him: no words…..just pretending he is enjoying playing “Vanna White” with my samples……
Me: “ok, hold it really still so I can get a closeup photograph of it.”
Him: “is this for your blog?”
Him: “is everything for your blog?”
Me: rolling of eyes…..I sense his sarcasm.
Me: (bringing attention back to the sample)…”so are you sure you like the finish?”
Him: “of course.”……. followed by silence……I am guessing his arms are hurting from holding my sample up for 10 minutes while I take a picture first with a flash, then without a flash, then set my camer to auto, then try one set on portrait…..
Him: “here, how’s this?” (as he turns the damask sample sideways…….)
Me: just gotta giggle at him…… I know when he’s done playing “Vanna“.
You’re a good man baby! Thanks for being my official “sample holder-upper”!
glad I’m not the only one with a husband with sarcasm towards the blog. You’ve got a good man there though.
Um… I’d say that sample is my style about right now… Come on over.
No really COME ON over…
What a good sport! Love it!!!
