—and we could all use a little more of that!
Happy New Year! Everyone we talk to says it’s the greatest feeling to say goodbye to 2020 and start a new year. We are ready for something better, and Harley and I are wishing all of you the very best. We want you to enjoy good health, happiness and prosperity in 2021. As we keep our spirits high and carry positive thoughts into this year, we are sending our positivity to you and your family as well.
How to keep spirits high?
We focus on all the people and activities that make us happy. If you are a client, you are already on that list, and we are grateful for you 🙂
You might be doing the same thing—focusing on what makes your world go ‘round and what makes you happy. Making a list of all the people you love and all the wondrous things that make you smile is therapeutic. Listing all the activities that would make your day special is a real boost to the spirit.
Smiles are good. Laughter is healing. Friendships are comforting.
We challenge you to make a list of all your favorite things—your very long list of all the goodness in your world. You’ll be amazed. We know that, even though we get busy, we’re thankful for our surroundings and how they make us feel. Because we’re busy, we can sometimes take these things for granted.
Think for a few minutes about how much you enjoy your daily conveniences: the comfortable bed, clean sheets, warm shower, heating source that keeps your home warm and cozy, that special plant that makes you smile, the music, movies, delicious meals, and the pleasant feeling of home. You might have hobbies that call out your creativity or the enjoyment that comes with reading a fascinating book.
Painting is our happy place.
Harley and I are always grateful for the people, pursuits and possibilities in our lives. Those of you who know us well already understand that we also love our customers and our painting services for Shoreview and beyond. Painting is on our list of favorite things because it combines our desire to serve with our need for creativity.
Our business was founded on the satisfaction that providing skilled craftsmanship gives us as we work with our Minneapolis/St. Paul area painting customers. We know that some of you don’t like to paint or perhaps don’t have time for it. Or maybe, you just can’t paint at this stage of your life. That’s why we’re here. We love to help create beautiful spaces for our customers.
Your home is your castle.
We’ve found that painting is at the heart of your homey creation, and it’s why we still get excited about a room makeover. It can completely change the look and feel of your surroundings. You want warm and cozy? Paint can do that. You want cool, crisp and clean? Paint can do that. You want energizing and enthusiastic? Paint can do that.
Those of you who have painted on occasion know how important the prep work is. It’s also what a lot of people don’t enjoy. True—it can be a bit tedious and time consuming—but when the prep is done with painstaking care, you achieve a final product that soothes the soul.
Our customers tell us how much the newly painted walls have boosted their outlook and improved their moods. Could be that we all need a little more of that these days!
You have an abundance of interior paint color choices.
There’s something uplifting about the right color for the room. We help with color choices when customers aren’t exactly sure what tone or shade will blend well and create the character that adds pleasure to their day.
It’s why we offer complimentary color consultations to our customers—because we want you to get it right. Some of the best comments we hear are, “I absolutely love this color and the tremendous difference it made in our home. Thank you, thank you!”
Customers find creative ways to make it work.
We know that some of you like to paint, and we are cheering you on! For those who don’t enjoy it, we are the first to say that we’re here to help. If you’re not sure when you’ll have time, let’s have a conversation. We are champions at making the schedule work for our customers and following appropriate Covid precautions. And if there are a few issues with previous water spots or cracks, they can be repaired to look like new. What a happy thought!
We also know that the investment in your home and your peaceful paradise is undeniably worth it. Many of our customers are happily designating their economic impact checks and/or tax refunds to painting projects that have been postponed until now. We’re happy to make the transformation from old and tired to new and fresh…and from uninspiring and humdrum to captivating and comforting.
We’re cheering you on!
If you enjoy painting as we do and it’s your happy place, we can relate! Please also share this blog with a friend who might be dreaming of new colors and a fresh start. If you don’t enjoy painting, we’d like to offer our services when the time is right. Give us a call at 651-765-0600. We’d love to hear about your next vision for beautifully painting your space. Thank you!
