I don't know about you but I am so looking forward to warmer weather. Driving from out of town in the freezing cold and blizzardy weather was never on my bucket list. And yet I've done it more times this year than I can remember.
Lets talk Spring! When the snow starts melting and the birds start appearing it gets us in the spirit to freshen things up. Growing up we had a week long "spring cleaning session". Every day I had to pick something off the list to deep clean. Now as an adult I actually look forward to it. Along with cleaning I often like to freshen up one or two rooms in my home.
Choosing the right colour for your space can be very difficult for some people. The lighting in their home and surrounding furniture play a huge roll in what the colour looks like in their space. Jut recently I suggested Collingwood to some friends who were repainting their kitchen. From what they described they were looking for it seemed like the perfect fit. We mixed up a sample and tried it out. It looked dark with a hint of Mauve in it! Not at all what it looked like at the store or on the walls at my house.
Buying a sample pot or bringing the chip home is something we highly recommend when choosing a colour. Here are a few colour ideas to brighten up your space this spring. Happy Spring Painting!
We have lots of customers who tell us they've tried all kinds of paint. But, once they've tried ours they've never gone back. Choosing the best quality paint is definitely step one but the second step is choosing quality tools to get the paint on to the walls. Using a roller from the dollar store to apply a quality paint is like cleaning your leather sofa with bleach. Sure your sofa will be clean but the end result will end up leaving your beautiful sofa looking like a bad tie-die job. Probably not what you had in mind. When you use low quality products to apply our paints your finished product won't have the end result you had in mind.
When picking up your paint be sure to ask whoever is serving you to show you what tools are right for your job. Here are a few of our favorite applicators and tools.
