My Secret Resource:
The antiques stores on Water Street in Warren, RI
Biggest DIY Inspiration:
Painted Andirons: This project barely takes an hour, much less a weekend, but it's a great way to add a quick visual punch to your space—and inspire you to tackle more ambitious projects next. All the credit here goes to Rebecca Robertson, a former Blueprint home editor and a fellow judge in this contest. With a quick swipe of Benjamin Moore "Surf Blue" (#2056-30), she transformed soot-black, purely utilitarian objects into whimsical turquoise objets.
It made such an impact in my 300-square foot apartment. (Important note: Painted andirons are only safe in a nonworking fireplace!)
