Do you have a painting horror story? I want to hear it!
Did you buy the wrong type of paint for a project, only to find it flaking off a month later? Did you dabble in the dark art of faux finishing only to be horrified by the results? Gotten stuck on a ladder trying to paint a two-story house? Or hired a painting crew that never showed up?
I want to hear your worst experience. Tell me exactly what happened - I need details! Email it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will review the submissions, picking three finalists that everyone on Facebook can vote on. The first place winner will get a one hour phone consultation about his or her home and any upcoming design projects.
Remember: Send your painting horror story to email@example.com before Wednesday, March 14th, 2012.
