Around the holidays, people are scrambling around trying to decorate the house and get everything ready for invited (and uninvited) guests. One of our latest projects had the homeowner panicked her home wouldn’t be ready by the time her in-laws got to town for Thanksgiving.
Most parents know that a three year old with permanent markers is a dangerous situation. This homeowner found out the hard way when she got home from work to find four walls covered with various squiggles. With less a week before her visitors were to arrive she had to get the two child-vandalized rooms repainted.
The customer was relieved when she saw her in-laws pull up to the house just as our painters were leaving. The painters even used a No-VOC paint so there were minimal fumes, the guests had no idea the room was finished just minutes prior to their arrival.
The Sharper Impressions Painting customer was elated that her home was able to be completed before the holidays. The new color put a great finish to the rooms and most importantly, covered up all of the permanent marker kid art.
Sharper Impressions Painting delivers two truck beds full of collected goods to the local food bank. A local food drive resulted in records amount of food being donated by Sharper staff and other community members to help those in need.
“During the winter months and especially around the holidays, it’s important to remember and help those less fortunate,” explained Sharper Impressions Founder Geoff Sharp. “I like to get all the staff to work together for such a vital cause.”
For every one pound of food donated, one meal is given to someone who needs it. Through the local food drive, 2,240 pounds of food were donated, creating an incredible 2,240 meals. With the help of Sharper Impressions and the local community, the food bank is able to feed over two thousand people.
Now that Thanksgiving is over and you’re getting ready to put away the fall decorations in preparation for the remainder of the holiday season, consider what a fresh coat of paint could do for your home. Sharper Impressions Painting works with many homeowners that prefer to get some of the rooms in their home freshened-up before decorating for the holidays.
Painting certain rooms before hanging decorations, provides a finished surface and allows for a more completed look; the work will not only look great, it will last for a long time. There is nothing worse than hanging up all the holiday decorations and realizing that you should paint before the in-laws come to town; you then have to take down or move the decorations for the painting and then re-do all your hard work.
