the day I pimped a stranger's kitchen - part one
CLOSED FOR THE PERIOD OF LOCKDOWN IN NEW ZEALAND.
I thought it was a joke. A total stranger asking lil ol' me to make them a kitchen splashback? Especially as the total stranger was going by the majestic name of "Wakalouie Waka" - yep, that had to be a joke.
However, after some gentle probing, it appeared to be an real, honest-to-goodness, I'm-actually-going-to-have-to-put-my-big-girl-pants-on, enquiry.
And so, Project Splashback was born!
Once that was established, it came down to design. Now Wakalouie Waka, whom it transpired was actually an Yvette, was the most amazing client you could ever wish to have, especially for a first foray into the world of fused glass splashback production.
She. Was. Amazing.
The only problem was the brief. As in absence of one.
"We'll go with any style you think would look good. I'm very eclectic, hence why I want a fused glass splashback."
You would think that a description like that would be a dream! Uh uh. This actually made it pretty tricky for the perfectionist in me to decide what to do! A quick telephone call that turned into a long chat later, and we had narrowed it down to "shades of green with pops of colour, and texture, and brightness" - ahhh, now we were getting somewhere! It was also very clear by now that the easy-going Yvette was quite a fan of different and really wanted a show stopper of a splashback.
Tune in next blog for The Day I Pimped a Stranger's Kitchen - Part Two!
