Dear S.,

My name is M. and I love to paint. I have painted, wallpaper and decorated my house and many others for years.

Some advice: If you are using a dark color, make use the painter is using a tinted primer prior to painting. This will decrease the amount of coats of paint required. Dark colors do require more than one coat. I have more advise on painting but want to also talk about what I can offer.

When I paint for clients, I charge $25 an hour. Clock stops when I take a break. Normally people charge by the room. Years ago, I had a lady clean my house. We settled on a hourly rate instead of a set amount. Both of us liked it.

I can give you an idea of how long the job will take and that will help you with the final total.

For $25 an hour, you can have me do painting, decorating, wallpapering, organizing, clean closets, clean rooms, help you throw things away, shop for you, suggest ideas, scrub tubs, plan a trip for you, etc!

Why $25 an hour? I am worth it. You will be happy.

I don't have my profile written yet. I have four kids, two dogs, one cat and two kittens. Love Church, love life.

We have used Beckner Painting Midwest and found them to be very good and reasonably priced. In fact, afterwards, we were thinking it was the best money we had every spent because painting can be so miserable!
