REimagine Tip: Caulk for a Professional Paint Job

For all of you that have DIY painting projects to tackle this fall now that the kids are back to school… Just a quick tip about one of the best ways to ensure a professional looking paint job.  I mentioned it in my “All About House Paint” post a few weeks back. Caulk–an essential part […]

REimagine Tip: All About House Paint

REimagine Tip: All About House Paint

  It’s no secret that I love to paint.  I paint pretty much everything: furniture, walls, cabinets, pictures, my nails…  With a lifetime of experience (I started painting the barns on our farm as a child, and more recently 11 years of painting apartments every month as a property manager) I get asked a lot […]

Unveiling: Vintage Chic Nursery at Va...

I am so incredibly proud of Stephanie–she was invited to participate in the 2017 Vanguard Designer Showcase! For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, Vanguard is the separate fundraising arm for the Albany Symphony Orchestra. Since the 1980’s they have invited local designers to contribute to a showhouse, in which an entire house […]

REimagine Tip: Choosing Between 50 Shades of Grey

I’ve recently received a slew of texts from friends and clients asking what grey paint they should use to ensure a true grey outcome. “You know, not a blueish, greenish, brownish or purplish grey but a grey-grey…” they say. Yes, I know. Boy, do I know.  Here is what I tell them: 1- You MUST […]

#MotelCamper

You know those “sponsored post” ads that pop up in your Facebook feed? Typically I find them way annoying, but today they led me to the House Beautiful Facebook page (which I guess means the ads are working!), where I stumbled upon this article about a cool renovation of a classic 1962 camper turned AirBnB […]

Tuft ALL THE THINGS!

Tuft ALL THE THINGS!

Stephanie recently debuted a new product: vintage hankie buttons! SO adorable. I am seized by a sudden desire to tuft all. the. things! Naturally, if you have a project or color scheme that you’d like to incorporate specifically, just let Stephanie know and she’d be happy to do a custom order. Think of how cool […]

REimagine Tip: Aging New Hardware

REimagine Tip: Aging New Hardware

A repeated theme here on the blog and on my Instagram account (did you see the REimagine Studio Instagram feed on the right!?) is “its all in the details”.  It’s the little details that add that finishing touch of authenticity and uniqueness to a piece of furniture, a room or a home. Changes in details […]

REimagine Tip: Cleaning Vintage Linens

As you can imagine, I buy my fair share of  vintage linens at estate sales, thrift shops and the like.  Alright, who is kidding who?   More than my fair share, I admit it.  I love them, and I have a very extensive collection!  Handkerchiefs, table runners, blankets, tablecloths, doilies, curtains, even sometimes scarves and […]

Sneak Peek: Hazel’s New Room

Sneak Peek: Hazel’s New Room

So I haven’t gotten around to photographing Hazel’s very nearly completed new bedroom (the trifecta of the right light, not disturbing nap time and cleanliness just haven’t aligned), but I wanted to give you a sneak peek: It’s gorgeous. I’ve overheard my mom saying “Hazel, you have the prettiest room!” more than once; and even […]
