    Hi there,

    I would like to know what the steps were that Casandra followed to paint the piano? I want to paint an old antique, but I don’t want it to look painted – se the brush streaks etc. The items I see in stores at the moment almost looked sprayed or coated like an expo of some sort? Hope I make sense.

    I’m interested in blogging and currently in the “research” stage of the process, as my goal is to make it lucrative. I stumbled on your blog through pinterest and it’s been really informative. I know I could goggle many of the stipulations you have written on this page…but I’m hoping to find one credible source…do you have any suggestions on books, texts, or sites where I can further research the legalities of blogging, copyrighting and saving my content??? I appreciate your time. ~Infinee

    Hi Kristi

    I am Gauri from India. Just came across your website while searching for pistachio shells art and i was amazed to see the wonderful decoration ideas you have shared. I don’t believe that one can be so innovative and imaginative. The best I have liked so far is the space saving magnetic spice board. You may know that Indian food is full of spices and its always a pain where to store it. Your creation is such a superb i cant express. However I don’t know if I can try making it successfully.

    Hi Kristi,

    Love your site! Just was wondering, what sheen do you normally paint your walls in? Flat? Eggshell? or what?
