Default From Texas, say no more

Hello all,
I'm a professional paperhanger for too many years.
I know, I know... whenever I tell people I'm a paperhanger they say, "Hitler was a paperhanger!"
What they don't say is that Hitler was also a vicious mass murderer, look it up.
Another thing people ask me when I tell them I'm a paperhanger is, "Oh, so you write hot checks?"
Yes, I write hot checks but you can't tell that from what I do for a living, that's professionism, it's just plain wrong.

Here's a photographic self portrait so you can see what an average day looks like for me:

I once had a job where the customers designer picked a Used French wallpaper that cost over 1200 a sq ft. Ouch,

Yeah, I hate it when the material costs more than the installation. Usually if you mess up (which never happens) you can learn from your mistake, rehang and break even.

Thanks for noticing me.

Say no more... say no more...







And here is a mural installation:





I love not having seams. Please ignore the swaying running board, I had a big lunch.
