Truth.... isn't it strange?

spring painting , remodel

Lots of painting to do this spring. I'm remodeling a bathroom  in my own home and getting some painting done for me.

One of the most rewarding parts of the work I do is in consulting. What that includes : colors and what paint to use and where. Every surface has its needs. Textures , woods, concrete. Badly remodeled or completely outdated design can all be transformed with less cost than most think. The surprise is in the preparation to do a job right . I could talk all day on primers and what sheen to use when painting.
This is my love , taking an uncared-for home and making it beautiful again. Most of it is cosmetic and that it where I come in.  Houses need social workers too. This kitchen had 3 layers of subfloor and old linoleum on top of this fir floor. Fir is soft but beautiful when restored . I used flat paint on the ceilings which cleaned the look up immensely I took out the odd pantry by the door and moved the fridge to open up the rest of the kitchen work space. Hung a pot rack over the stove which helped with freeing up more cabinet space. But most of all the RED is what did the room justice.
