Those three words are my sister-inlaw Kathy Stein’s favorite mantra! She is fabulous at repairing and repainting, washing take out containers, and bravely composting the most disgusting things. We proudly call her the Dumpster Diva.
After spending a week end at her house I come back to my humble abode all inspired. I run around unplugging everything… as Kathy brags about an electric bill under $200 in the heat of her Florida home. I turn off every light, shut down the computers and yell at my boys for touching the thermostat. My bill still never seems to dip below $500, but I am confident that we are doing our best to head in the green direction.
I knew after studying Feng Shui, I needed a new piece of furniture for my entry. But how could I justify one more piece as my house is over packed with stuff as it is.
So I took the advice I constantly tell my clients and “shopped in my own home”. Look at what I found hidden in the corner of my sitting room. Housing old costume jewelry and workout wear it was just what I was looking for.
With two different red paints, two Benjamin Moore Metallic Glazes and some new hardware…
Thank you Kathy… I can’t wait to search for more undiscovered treasures!
