Helpful Tip #1

I do a lot of painting, like it or not right? So I’ve started saving the paint sticks I use for each paint color and here’s the reason why this is better than just taking a picture of the can label. My fav fav fav color is Agreeable Grey by Sherwin Williams. Last time I went to Home Depot (our Lowes is geographically challenging) to get a gallon I was told there are FIVE, 5, cinco, as in a whole hand of fingers of formulas for Agreeable Grey. Say whaaaaat Susan?, I asked Susan at the paint counter. Yep! Five. So I had to blindly just pick one and pray. So now I save the paint sticks I use to stir the paint with the paint color and where I use it. Now I can always have them color match the end of the paint stick

I am one of those people that has spent their adult life saying "How hard can it be????". If you combine that with a frugalness, that is exceeded only by my younger daughter, you have a combination that is often very successful but not without its 'ooops' moments. ;-) I've never wanted to spend the money to hire a professional so I learned how to do things myself. I wanted crown molding, too expensive, so I learned how to do it. Same thing with building, landscaping, painting, lighting, sewing, yada yada -- you get where I'm going with this I'm sure. :-) I have the tools and the experience for so many projects. Through this site I am sharing my skills and lessons learned to help others develop that "How hard can it be??" spirit in your home. If you want it, have been dreaming about, lusting after your friends version, posted a million posts of it to your Pinterest board --let's make it happen and within your budget. I'm a decorator AND the creator -- no middleman markup. I'm running out of projects in my house, (short of building an addition!) so lets get to work on yours! Whether it's slipcovers, new window treatments, making that dining room table look like it DID come from RH or helping you develop your own style I would be thrilled and honored to assist!
