Yet Another Benefit from the COVID Lockdown …

I was working in the remodeled living room of a home out in the Memorial Villages (west Houston). I had the space to myself, even with a private water supply (wet bar). The family was in the rear of the house.

I had spent two days smoothing and priming the walls, and on Day 3 had set up my table, unrolled two bolts, and was plotting the layout of the wallpaper pattern.

The homeowner, who has been working from home, just happened to wander past at that time. (keeping 8′ distance) She noticed that the paper I had spread out on my table was not the same shade as the sample she and the designer had chosen.

Sure enough – the paper was the wrong pattern number – two digits off.

Whew! I had not cut anything yet. So there should be no problems in sending the material back and exchanging for the correct colorway.

So lucky the homeowner was there – or I would have had two walls up by the end of the day.

The issue now is, with the virus crisis, shipping is bollixed up, and so is manufacturing and warehousing. So it’s not certain when that replacement paper will be here.
