Home for the Holidays...

In a Green Kind of Way...
During the holiday season everyone wants their house to look its best, inside and out. So while you are scrambling to finish that last minute paint job before the company arrives, take a minute to think about making some green choices for your holiday home improvement projects. Environmentally and health conscience brands of paint, for example, are popping up at your local home improvement stores. Ask an associate to help you compare conventional and green options.
