    Hey CSI Ladies – It’s Julia from bles-id … I’m obviously too dumb to figure out how to email you to select our paint color from Dutch Boy. We have been so blessed, we’ve decided to donate our paint to Habitat for Humanity so we can pass our blessings onto others!
    I think that a nice neutral would be Grand Stand Tan in a semigloss, but really they can use any color, I’m sure. Once again, thank you so much! And let me know how to email you so I can send you my address! I feel like such a dork! XOXO jules

  3. Oh wow! Thanks so much for including my bathroom in the Top 10. How very exciting. My first time! The 3 winners have such great before and afters. Well deserved!

  4. Wow!! Thank you so much for featuring TWO of my rooms in the Top 10! What an honor! 🙂 And I second Cassie… thank you for hosting so many wonderful, inspiring parties each week.

  5. WOW!!! Thank you so much!!! I am so flattered you loved TWO of my rooms…and to be included in such great company! Love this blog and all the inspiring projects!

  7. Julia says:

    WHOOOO HOOOOO! Thank you CSI Project and Dutch Boy! We are so thrilled that our kitchen was chosen as one of the winners! So from me and my own “Dutch Boy” THANK YOU! You’ve made our renovation so much more special as now we can brag we were a #1 pick! XOXO and Happy Painting! Jules
