    Hi Christine,

    Just a question about blog you did on Sept 9, 2012. The first picture on the page is furniture with a dog sitting on a chair. The curtains in that photo I have been on a mission to find since I saw them in a model home. Can you please guide in right direction in finding them? They are the finishing touch for my beach theme living room.

    Thank you,

    Oh how I love your site and emails with their lovely ideas; however, do you realize what you just did. A grouping of what you hate about Christmas includes much of the things you/we don’t have time for and then direct us to a page where we see a beautiful tree ( mine isn’t up yet ), talk about making tags and cookies and the lovely exchange of gifts bought per December as you “run across” the right gift for the right person.
    I luv ya but please read what you wrote then read what you sent – the Grand Canyon could fit in between.

      Thank you Emily for the email! And thank you for pointing it out. The blog post was so long that I wanted to finish it and get it out there!

      Again, thank you!

      Hi Susan
      thanks for the email – not sure which worksheets you mean – there are some when you sign up for the newsletter.. are they the ones you’re referring to.

      Please let me know so I can help you.

    Hi Christine,

    Could you tell me whether you would use milk paint on a dining room table that will get a lot of use? Would really appreciate some advice/tips on this.

    Many thanks,

    • Christine says:

      Hi Cheryl
      thanks for the email! The finish will be vital for a well used dining table. You can use both wax and poly on milk paint for added protection. Two to three coats of water based poly and then a coat of wax to ensure safety is often enough. But if the dining table will be exposed to spillages or any kind of moisture its best to go with three coats of oil based poly for protection. Water based poly won’t be enough! Good Luck!

    I can’t see your photos on your pages. They are just little squares. Do you know what I can do?

    • Christine says:

      Hi Katie
      thanks for the email – I just checked and it seems to be fine on my end. Is it all pages?

    Could you please tell me where to source the red patterned material on the ottoman feature on your website… The room had a red wall with a white fire surround. Thanks

    I live in BC Canada and have not been able to find Calcium Carbonate anywhere? Also I am not able to order it from the states as it is banned under Canada’s Food and Drug Act, so it is not allowed to be shipped here? Any suggestions as to how I could buy it in Canada?
