Read All About It Please take a moment to read about the products and services we provide. I am sure you will find a way we can help meet your decorating needs. I offer several services related to the products I offer. Broadly, the services include customizing color and design, and helping customize pieces you already own, and a Personal Shopper Service. Color customization is offered within the existing colors offered by the inks I use for coasters and mixed media and paint colors offered by the brand of paint I use.
Chalk Painting Your Décor and Furniture I work with clients to paint and seal your existing furniture and home décor. I use paint and sealers from a variety of manufacturers. Right now I am favoring chalk paint from Rustoleum and Dixie Belle. To seal projects, I am using Minwax polycrylic in satin finish for a slight sheen or Modern Masters Dead Flat Varnish for a flat finish. The paint color or finishes that are chosen are dependent on what suits your decor and/or the piece of furniture. As much as possible I try to purchase and use paint and sealers made in the USA.
Each job will be priced according to the size of the piece and the scope of the work. A written quote will be provided that is good for sixty (60) days. The quote will cover paint, wax/sealer, any other supplies, labor and travel/delivery expense (if applicable). The quote will also include a timeline and an anticipated date of completion. Any change orders may incur additional fees and may delay the completion date depending on where I am in the process of painting your piece(s). Delivery charge will be billed separately and must be paid before delivery takes place.
A 50% minimum deposit is required before work begins. The remaining difference is due when the piece(s) is completed and before the piece is released to the client.
Up to two (2) change orders are allowed, depending on what has already been done to your piece and may include a change order fee. Change orders include, but are not limited to, color changes, changing the type of paint used (standard paint or one step or other paint), adding a glaze or other techniques such as dry brush distressing, changing from paint to stain or vice versa, etc.
Notes will be taken on color selection, paint type, whether wax is needed, anticipated date of completion, etc.
Before and after photos will be taken of your piece(s). By signing the contract for work on your piece(s) you consent to these photos being used for promotional purposes without compensation.
If completed pieces are not picked up within seven (7) days of notification of completion, storage fees will begin accruing at the rate of $10.00 per day. If completed pieces are not picked up within thirty (30) days of notification of completion, the piece is considered abandoned and becomes the property of Cynthia Welch Designs to do with as we wish, including putting it up for sale.
Personal Shopper Service I am happy to assist clients in finding décor for their home. For this service my client and I would discuss the piece(s) that is (are) desired and price range. I would take notes on what you are looking for, price range, condition of the piece, date needed, etc. This service does not include any other services such as painting or other alterations to the piece. Inspiration photos from magazines, etc. are very helpful
If delivery to your location is desired, this must be discussed before the search begins to find the piece you are looking for. Delivery will incur a delivery charge which will be payable before delivery takes place.
The cost of this service includes: Shopping Services ($15/hour, 1 hour minimum) + Purchase Price of Piece + Delivery Charge (if applicable). Invoicing is available and payable by credit or debit card.
Wedding, Event, and Party Favors Many times we want our friends and family to leave our special events with something to remember the event. Offering a favor related to the event is a way to do this very thing. At Cynthia Welch Designs we offer event favors through our tumbled travertine coasters and car (cup holder) coasters. Special pricing is available when a single design is used for the favors, when ordered in increments of 25 favors.
What events warrant party favors? Consider these events ... * Christening, Baby Dedication, Baptism * First Communion * College Graduation Party * Housewarming * Engagement Party * Wedding (for your wedding party, wedding guests, or both) * 25th or 50th Wedding Anniversary Celebration * Retirement Party
Photos will be taken of your favors. By signing the contract for work on your favor(s) you consent to these photos being used for promotional purposes without compensation.
