Default I'm a Newbie

Hey Everyone,Glad to find a site for US,lol.I dont mind helping others w/ there projects but as you all know we need a hang out (Painters Club). Lets see,Ive been painting for...26 years now.When i started you had to do the apprentice thing.For 3 years thats what i did making 3.35 an hour.They would have to hide their wet brushes during lunch or i would be at it.I'm like a lota you a "True" painter.I have my own thing now and have been serious about it for a few years.Currently theres only 3 of us, one of those being my son.Its nice having him w/ me.Being able to teach him the real ways and values of being a GOOD painter.Those days dont exist anymore.Where we take the time to explain the "why" not to mention the "how" to do things.Now its just give um a brush and let them go.Anyway look forward to getting to know all and thanks for allowing me into da CLUB,LOL

Welcome Alabama Painter!

You'll be right at home here. Most of the Paint Talk members are painting contractors like yourself. Only a few of us are employees, but we're eager to learn what it takes to be a good professional painter, and what it takes to be an entrepreneur and savvy business person, just in case we ever get the courage to strike out on our own.
