So I have been a bit quiet on my homefront due to many different projects going on all while traveling to and fro the past three months. I have had several ongoing projects (repainting entire first floor, redecorating den, updating kitchen, buying fabrics for various projects, etc.) and it’s just been a big decorating tizzy over here at Chez Moi.
But before I do any big reveals (and that’s because nothing is fully complete yet), I wanted to share with you one handy little tip I picked up while I was painting. For our home interior, I really wanted to use a zero toxin paint and loved Mythic Paint for my exterior so it was my go-to choice for my interior; plus it’s from Mississippi, my home state! This required special painters who are good at handling this paint and I’m so glad I chose to go with them because boy were they thorough!
Once my painters started to paint, they removed all of my original (read 1917) window hardware off my original (read 1917) windows. Some of these locks and latches may have been replaced over the years but the condition they were in would lead me to believe that they had never been removed before to allow for a proper paint job. So once the painters removed them, they asked if I wanted to replace them as they were looking a bit rough.
