To Whom It May Concern:

Straitline Decorating was recommended to me by Ruth Faklis at the Prairie Trails Public Library and I will always be grateful to her for doing so.

Straitline Decorating took our institution known as the Matteson Public Library and made it a home for our staff and patrons.

Steve Bulthuis is an artist in his own right. He took my obscure ideas and cemented them into a plan and color scheme that brought the outdoors inside and gave the library great warmth. He also worked with me to choose new carpeting that would compliment our color scheme and worked with the carpet crew to match the color of the door frames to the new baseboard.

Our relationship with Straitline didn't end after the walls were painted. They came back after all of the furniture was in place to touch up any areas we asked to have looked at. The next summer I asked them back to refinish all of our oak doors and desks. I also hired Jolyn Bulthuis to paint a giant mural on the wall in the children's room.

I was so delighted with teh work that Straitline does and the friendliness of the crew, that I hired them to do some painting for me at my home.

Should you choose to work with Straitline Decorating, don't be afraid to listen to Steve and put yourself in his hands. He knows what he is doing and he backs up his promises.
