i'd love to say my job was glamorous all the time! it's actaully 5% glamour and the rest is grunt work (but i actually like grunt work most of the time!)
i spend my days planning presentations, processing orders, following up on orders, invoicing, writing estimates, coordinating installations, consulting, driving, going to the grocery store, doing laundry,driving carpool and cooking dinner......oh, and raising 2 young boys and trying to be a wife-whew!
here's a look behind the scenes.....including an inside peak in the work spaces of the people i could not live without-the drapery workroom, my upholsterer, and my cabinet / furniture maker....they are the BEST!!
AT THE WORKROOM........
TIME TO FIND SOME SAMPLES FOR A FAMILY ROOM REMODEL........WHERE DO I START??
|an extensive fabric, trim, and wallpaper library is a fantastic resource!|
|panels ready for installation|
WE ARE NOT DONE YET, IT'S TIME TO CHECK ON MY CUSTOMER'S UPHOLSTERED PIECES NEXT DOOR............
|welts in all different sizes....which one for the headboard????|
|fat welt or thin? we went for the fat.|
BACK IN THE CAR DRIVING CROSS TOWN TO THE CABINET / FURNITURE WORKSHOP!!.......
|just wait until you see what we are doing with the bamboo on a cabinet / console.....i am beyond excited!|
|kitchen cabinets in the works.....|
AND THAT'S ANOTHER DAY IN THE LIFE!
