Made a quick trip to talk to Amy Winters, owner of EL Home in Westerville, and she told me to:

Clean with Mineral Spirts and paint again...

This piece of furniture needed a new look. I love the look of Annie Sloan’s paints and waxes but the best help is Amy Winters and her ideas…many in EL Home located in Westerville, Ohio

I had one crazy week. Three closings scheduled for Friday. 2 closings were back to back. I had done all my homework, crossed my t’s and dotted my i’s but the buyer’s agents had not done all of their homework. I have been typed as an amible driver…I take responsibility for my actions and complete all assignments…remember my first career as a teacher. All will close…but 48 hours of pushing…almost felt like I was in labor again. Note to self: Even after I know I have done all I can do, I still get emotionally attached. Maybe that is why I don’t need to market myself…I care about my clients and their families. Scrubbing, sanding, etc. did help! I left my vino in the cellar.
