It can be a full-time job answering all the e-mails I get with questions about particular things. Unfortunately, I already have a full-time job. In an effort to answer your questions more efficiently and spare my sanity, I thought I’d answer the most frequently asked questions. I hope this helps!

All the paint colors that I know for this house can be found here.

What kind of camera do I use? I write adoringly about it here, here, and here. It’s a Canon T1i, and I can’t recommend it enough. Great investment.

It’s Benjamin Moore’s Metal and Wood paint. I don’t get it mixed. I simply get it in a black base paint. I’ve also been asked where I buy it. My town has a local paint store that sells Benjamin Moore paint exclusively. From what I understand, you cannot get it at a “big box” store. You can go here to find locations near you.

The old “Where did you find that” series. Here we go.

My daughter’s bed. After searching and searching, I found it here. I purchased it with the trundle, and it came with a free mattress. It’s worked out perfectly for her friends. 

My daughter’s bedding.  It’s the Annabel duvet from Serena and Lily. I’m absolutely in love with it! You can find all the other resources for this room here.

That tree. Yup, I painted it. I’m not sure of the original source I used, but I have seen it in vinyl on Etsy. However, I can show you how I did it. You’ll find the tutorial here.

I ordered it from Say it with Style off Etsy. I absolutely love it!

The “mirror” in the dining room.is actually a candle platter. The other pictures don’t do it justice, but it has a gorgeous pattern in it! I found it at Ikea for $15.00—on sale from $25.00.

What are all the measurements of the board and batten in your dining room?

Luckily (for me) I already typed up some posts that answer all the questions about that room. You can see them here and here.
