Haha, I bet the title of this post, “Moving a Mural” made you look twice.
Let me tell you the story about how I recreated a nursery mural for a client.
Two years ago, I painted a cherry blossom tree branch mural on a nursery room wall. My client and I had the perfect color scheme and the mural colors were going to look great on the existing wall color. I added touches of a warm gold to the centers of the flowers and the warm gold matched the metal furniture pieces beautifully.
This is the original mural I painted.
I jotted down the colors and notes in my “recipe book.” My recipe book contains notes on all my projects including colors I’ve used, glaze ratios I’ve mixed, and quick sketches I have made. I have kept my all my recipe books since I started my business. However, the Pandemic changed that. I started cleaning my office out and purged many of my recipe books. I also gave the cans of paint to my client in case she needed them. That’s just a policy of mine. This way, if the client wants to have me touch up something, or perhaps wants to custom match a fabric, the colors are right there.
This past Fall, I received a call from the same client. Life happens and she was in the process of moving. She was heartbroken over leaving the mural and asked if I could recreate it in her new home. She sent me pictures of the new space. I stopped by and measured where the mural would go. I made the process as smooth and stress free as possible. (I’m sure you’d agree that moving is stressful enough.) When the other contractors were done, I went to the new home and recreated the mural. Within a few days, I made the nursery feel like home.
The mural process– from the initial meeting to the actual painting–should not be stressful at all for the client. This is a joyful experience! Making something from the heart that creates joy in all who see it is my “Why. ”
I’m glad I could help my client move the mural.
