I get pleasure from watching TLC. There are reveals on nutty households, medical marvels, and residential enchancment. The house enchancment reveals have taken on new that means for me since I began writing for 

Now, one in every of my favourite house enchancment reveals was Buying and selling Areas. For individuals who aren’t accustomed to this present, two units of neighbors redecorate a room in one another’s house with a funds of $1,000 they usually have the help of an inside designer supplied by the present. 

When designer Hildi Santo-Tomas could be one of many designers, I knew I needed to make some popcorn as a result of watching what this lady was going to do was going to be a present all by itself.

I’ll always remember this one episode the place Hildi painted the partitions utilizing a paintball gun. I referred to as my husband over as a result of he used to play paintball and he simply began yelling on the tv, “No, no, don’t do it. Are you loopy?” Hildi didn’t heed and she or he fired away.

That is no strategy to paint your partitions. Seems Hildi completely pock-marked the sheetrock and since paintballs include extra oil than paint, it was an enormous mess and inconceivable to wash or paint over. My husband nonetheless has PTSD from that episode.

Between you, me, and the lighthouse, I believe Hildi had a hand within the design of the house featured on this week’s column. The outline says, “Designed by a Effectively-known Inside Designer.” It may possibly solely be Hildi.

The entry with the extremely polished and reflective cupboard completely screams out Hildi’s title.

I did promise you a splash of colour. I just like the uncovered beams. It makes shifting the edges of beef a lot simpler when you’ll be able to simply dangle them up and slide them across the kitchen. The actually sharp knives are stored within the cupboard by the entrance door.

If you find yourself finished chopping up and cooking all that beef, you’ll be able to get pleasure from your meal right here.

All of the uncovered duct work jogs my memory of the breakroom on the poultry plant the place my Dad was a USDA inspector. Smoke ’em if you happen to obtained ’em.

I want I may say you may get some reprieve within the bogs however then I’d be mendacity.

The outline additionally says this house was “rebuilt from the bottom up in 2010.”

Now the one factor the designer obtained proper was not placing any curtains on the glass doorways. Why would anybody be trying by means of these home windows? In the event that they did, they might solely achieve this as soon as.

I have no idea about you, however I’m in no rush to commerce areas with these of us. I’ve seen sufficient to know I’ve seen an excessive amount of.
