Alright y’all I’ll be honest… this topic is one of my hot buttons! Maybe that’s bad to admit but it’s definitely a pet peeve!

Some days I think all I do is talk about paint. Working at a paint store means I spend the majority of my time looking at new paint colors, figuring out which type of paint a customer needs and troubleshooting painting problems! There's nothing worse then finding out the three rooms you just spent hours painting were the wrong product... and the fresh shiny new coat of light french gray paint you've applied is peeling off in huge sheets!
It's a real problem y'all.
Of course, the best part of knowing a bit about paint is sharing my knowledge with all of you! I love to answer your questions every week and I work really hard to write up posts to cover. all. the. things.
Whether you're picking the perfect color, trying to figure out just what paint brush you need or trying to figure out how to remove frustrating wallpaper I've got you covered.

Picking the perfect paint color can be overwhelming… simply looking at all the paint chips can be information overload!

When picking the perfect color there’s definitely a method to the madness but before we can even start to… Read More
When we were planning our kitchen makeover most of the steps fell into place soooo easily… painting the cabinets, adding a gorgeous glass backsplash… especially my new chrome faucet. The one thing I couldn’t decide on was what to do with our hideous red counters! I thought about replacing them but we weren’t quite ready for that large of a… Read More
