{national swap ideas day 2011}

September 10 is National Swap Ideas Day – and since the experts at Hirshfield’s are full of great ideas, we thought we’d swap some with you now! Check out these great paint and decorating tips from the Hirshfield’s pros and feel free to leave your own favorite tip in the comments section.

It’s YOUR house, YOU have to live there.  Pick colors YOU like, not what some person in New York said is the hot color this year.  Unless you are trying to sell, then go neutral.  Like 0175 3am Latte.

Painting your bathroom
My favorite tip is for people painting their bathroom. The part of the bathroom people struggle with the most is the area behind the toilet. I tell customers to put a garbage bag over the tank.  This way you don’t have to worry about getting paint all over the tank while you try and paint behind it. It works great.
