The Easiest Makeover
A new paint job is one of the simplest, most inexpensive ways to makeover your home. And spring's open-window weather is a great time to dive in. The fresh air keeps you breathing easy, and the warming temperatures will help the paint dry.
If you hate that "new paint" smell, consider one of the 1,320 shades in Rodda Paint's new Horizon line. Among its environmental attributes: There are no volatile organic compounds; it's odorless; it's free of any chemicals shown to be cancer-causing (one of the reasons Green Seal, an environmental watchdog, gave it a stamp of approval); and it contains a mold and mildew inhibitor.
