Default Love it Bret!

You have some serious painting skills man. Might I recommend you incorporate, buy a hanger and start a business! Looks good. Can't wait to see the finished product.

When that kind of paint job runs over $10K, there are very few takers.

Best,

Paint job costs:
Pierre is correct for sure on keeping the cost under 10k. I have a friend that flew his to a popular paint shop in the midwest somewhere just for a paint job to save 5k. Travel ate some of the savings up but he was still way ahead.

Bret's paint job design looks Great! Good job.

Looks awesome! If your wife kicks it out of the house, I'll hang it on the wall at my office for a while!
