Default Hello from Peterborough

Hello,

I hadn't planned on getting into the painting business... Two years ago I wasn't getting enough hours at work (the most incompetent guy there was doing scheduling good idea right?) and friends of mine needed their living-room painted. I painted for student painters in my 20's where I learned how not to paint if you don't want to go to Hell, and then for a pro for a year where I learned how to paint if you want people to like you. Useful skills I put to use over the years in homes and a power-of-sale cottage I used to own. So long story short my friends asked me to paint their living-room, next thing you know people who needed stuff painted just came out of the woodwork and I've been painting full-time since May 2012, part-time over the winter.
When I'm not painting I'm at home with my kids 11 & 7, in a small bungalow that I am slowly renovating. I love the flexibility of this job because I can spend more time with them (not including the times when I can't spend anytime with them because the tenant is moving into the rental I'm painting in 24 hours!!!).
I find this forum so helpful thank you internet and painttalk!
