“Love” Your Mantle

“Love” Your Mantle…a very important part of your living space is the fireplace. Make sure the dressing you achieve brings you pleasure. Small lamp lighting on a mantle is lovely and adds warmth.

I Love to Go to Lowe’s Home Improvement

Today I was in Lowe’s looking for a product that would waterproof a canvas I want to hang outside. No luck there but I did run across an amazing product yet to be proven by me. I am excited to try this and want to share with you.

Rust-Oleum Countertop and Cabinet Transformations. Kits allowing you to transform worn, damaged and outdated countertops into new surfaces in just one weekend. One kit covers up to 50 SF. Comes in five colors and looks incredible. The kit contains everything you need.

The countertop kit comes in two different tintable kits. One dark and one light. The dark kit can be tintable to 24 colors; the light one to 11 colors. You have the option of with or without decorative glaze. I am so excited to try this. As soon as I do I will post before and after pictures.

This should help a lot of people save money and create beautiful rooms…one at a time..by design. Until later.

The Importance of Paint

Viewing a home online is an experience. Take note of the wall colors of each home. How do you feel if all the walls are robin egg blue as we call it. What if all the rooms were this color? Would this be overwhelming? I think so for the potential buyer. Suggestions were to one remove all if “the stuff” and then to paint in neutral shades of grays with brown undertones, or brown with gray undertones. The neutral shades will highlight the wonderful white trim, cabinets and the new granite (installed soon). Viewed on the internet, where buyers start their search, I am sure they could 1) not see the space 2) be overwhelmed with blue. If blue is your favorite color and you are decorating, try varying shades of blue. If you are staging stay away from this shade of blue….go much lighter, almost just a kiss of blue undertone in a gray. Happy staging and decorating.
