Over the past few months I’ve been looking at business opportunities and have settled on a couple to try out. So, I’m going to be expanding this blog to cover not just gardening, but also home remodel, repair and decorating. Also, the blog may be moving to a new URL once I decide on the name for my business. As much as I love Green Avalon it doesn’t immediately tell someone what my business is all about, so I need to come up with something new.
This site will offer an expanded blog with home improvement, remodel, and redecorating, with the do-it-yourselfer in mind. It will continue to include great information on gardening and outdoor spaces.
My new business will be as an interior decorator where I help people who have a mansion taste, reproduce the look they want, by doing most of the work themselves, at a fraction of the cost. My husband and I have remodeled most of our house for around $10,000. That included a totally new kitchen: tile floors, oak cabinets, tile countertops, new appliances, paint and trim; new bamboo flooring in three rooms; new carpet in four rooms; repairing damaged walls, texturing, and painting (including faux finishes) in five rooms. We saved ourselves thousands of dollars doing it ourselves and it’s not as difficult as they want you to think.
Look for the addition of how-to videos, articles, and in the near future informational DVDs as well as some of my favorite products that can be delivered right to your door.
This combines two of my favorite things. Making things beautiful and teaching, both of which I excel at. If you want a sneak peek, just go to my other site and take a look at the before and after photo album. The photos of the yard are incomplete, as we only started on the yard this last summer, due to extensive travels in the past. Hope you enjoy the new offerings!
