I finally had enough of my kitchen last week and decided to paint the wood trim above the cabinets white (which of course led to painting the backsplash and walls!).
It's no secret how much I dislike painting (and how awful I am at it). Clients often ask me if I paint as well, and I always tell them I would have to pay them to let me paint, that's how bad I am...
I especially hate taping - it never seems to help me anyway, and I end up with rough edges and with paint everywhere. This time we used Frogtape ("the only tape treated with Paintblock", according to the package)...and I have to say, I love it (well, as much as someone can love painter's tape...). Peels off easily and leaves a nice, straight edge - it's like someone else painted :)

For the last of my 5 free decorating tips, you can also try shopping at my favourite decorating store –- the great outdoors. The home accessories you can find outside are pretty much endless: branches, shells, sand, wood, rocks, pinecones, nuts, acorns, leaves, and more. Grab a vase or bowl and you have a simple but attractive free display.
Any of these ideas can quickly and easily update the look of your space – at no cost!
