I LOVE decorating and think I have single handedly kept the local hardware store/lumber yard in business with the gallons of paint I've purchased to paint two houses inside and out! I, too, have a bit of painting to do this spring. My craftroom/kids' toy room is still wood paneling and I removed a built-in shelf and can't match the paint in my living room to patch the wall. I'm feeling an accent wall in dusty navy or rust. About the old stuff turning to dust....we pulled up the "vintage" carpet in our daughters' rooms and the carpet bad was nonexistent. Pure dust!
Have fun and take some chances. It's just paint and can always be changed!
As my best friend says, "Stamping....it's cheaper than therapy" to which I add, "Not by much".
My mom was the proud recipient of my first handmade card. Cost $200.
