(Editors note: I realize this is long, but I think that you’ll see it is worth the read)
Your DIY stencil kit is awesome! I just wanted to write a note to tell you how much I appreciate you offering your kit for those of us who aren’t able to have the work professionally done by you. I did extensive research on all the other stencil painting, star kits on the market before I purchased your kit. I’m sure you already know this, but what you offer is
Aside from the stencils themselves, you included detailed instructions that teach how to achieve that lifelike 3D look. You also gave great customer service whenever I had any questions along the way. To me, having a great product is extremely important, but equally important is the customer service. It is clear that your goal isn’t only to sell these DIY stencil kits; it’s to have people be successful and have a gorgeous night sky.
The mural I just completed was for my son’s room and he had absolutely no idea of what to expect. In fact none of the family did. I think that in their minds I was just going to paint some “cheesy,” glow in the dark stars. Well, this mural is anything but cheesy, and their reactions were all the proof that I needed.
During the painting process I kept “peeking eyes” away and I made the family wait until the reveal. That night, for the reveal, my son lay down on his bed and waited for me to tell him to open his eyes. The anticipation was almost too much for him to handle after having to wait a few days for me to finish painting. But, wait he did until I finally told him to open his eyes.
These are his exact words… “Dad, this is sooo much better than anything I’d hoped for. I never thought it would look so real. It’s almost like you took the entire ceiling off of my room. It feels just like I’m up north at the Cabin. I love this so much!”
Anybody who has ever had the experience of seeing a gorgeous and clear, starlit, night sky that you only get to see by going far, far away from any city lights, knows what my son meant. That was all that I needed to hear to know that I’d done a good job, and I owe it all to you, Jeff.
Every night since then, the entire family crowds onto my son’s bed and we all just stare up at our Night Sky. The way the stars seem to twinkle simply blows our minds. I swear his night sky ceiling looks so real that my kids are just waiting to see a shooting star. To be honest, I am too.
Looking back now makes me laugh. When I first told my wife that I wanted to use your DIY stencil kit on my son’s ceiling, she questioned whether or not a night sky was appropriate for a 13 year old boy’s room. She thought it might be more appropriate for a 5 or 6 year old. Well, that was before she saw the finished mural. She now says that she would actually be ok with me painting another night sky in every room of the house.
I’ve got to tell you that we are all blown away here. I am by no means an artist, but after using your Night Sky Mural DIY stencil kit, one would sure think I was. Your stencil is so much more than just rolling paint over a stencil, but just about as easy. Thanks a million, Jeff! This kit was worth every penny.
Now on to the next room!!!
