Malena and Graham have a different approach to green: they haven't done an intensive renovation, or put down bamboo floors, or built from scratch. They invested time in finding the perfect house for them. All it needed was a bit of cleaning, polishing, and paint. And now it's green and gorgeous.
Also this week, Re-nest readers chipped in with opinions on their favorite reusable bags. Stephanie took us through a 7,000 square foot (?!!) green house. We met Jay Hasbrouck, who blogs over at Verde Vista, and we went through step-by-step how to get a good finish using zero- or low-VOC paint. Also, remember Ian and Raedia's house? We saw it while it was still under construction, and now it's (almost) all done.
We've put together a step-by-step guide to getting good looking results with zero-VOC paint. It needs a bit more care in application than paint that pollutes.

Chico? Envirosax? CYMA? Crochet-your-own? What's the best reusable bag? It's a question we can't seem to get enough at Re-nest.
