Relief for Would-Be Decorators and Designers!

I got some feedback from a member of ToolGirl.com: 

"I'm clueless when it comes to decorating. I find the seemingly infinite choices, even in something as fundamental as color scheme, let alone all the other options, overwhelming to the point of paralysis. I want some decorating advice."

I can relate.  I once painted a floor 7 times before I got the colour right.  If I have to pick out tiles or flooring or fabrics I just want to go to sleep until it's over.  As men abhor chick movies, I loathe making decor decisions.

Fortunately, there's now a new, fresh, free online resource to help those of us who are decor-challenged. RONA (Canada's largest hardware and home improvement dealer) offers a way to make choosing your decorating style really simple and maybe even fun.  They even provide free plans for DIY projects like canopy beds and storage - complete with materials lists and cut lists.  

Watch this ToolGirl video report for a tour of the resources available to you online at rona.ca.



I agree with the youthful bed thing.. cause it feels Beautifully heavenly.. like you've just stepped in the beauty of Heaven
