carpet samples, tile samples, and...

When I get enthusiastic I tend to talk fast. The other day I was consulting with a new client on their remodeling project in the basement. They wanted my opinion on different choices they were making on this project. The basement had bare drywall and a beautiful custom built bar but not much else (not including the scrap wood, carpentry equipment).

We started with their initial vision for how they will use the room and especially what materials they are considering. So I asked them about the carpet samples and we looked at those. Next I asked about tile samples for around the new bar and we discussed the choices there. Next, I asked about stool samples .... oh yes, I did.

I could not believe I said those words - "stool samples" . Of course I was talking about ideas for seating around the bar but that is certainly not how it came out! (pardon the pun). I was so embarrassed. We all had a good chuckle over that one.
