Like Mother, Like Daughter-Two DIY Projects to Astound Us ?


When DIYer, Raquel, and her daughter, Elise, want to create a DIY masterpiece, the duo prefers to get their paint and supplies from their friends at Santa Barbara Paint Depot. Raquel’s DIY project was beautiful pumpkin art. Fernando, aka, Fern, helped Raquel picked the appropriate products to create a stunning, one-of-a-kind pumpkin pair that hasn’t been in any patches we’ve come across!

Raquel used Rust-Oleum 2x to prime the pumpkin and Benjamin Moore’s Regal® Pearl Select for the finish She purposely chose Santa Barbara Paint Depot to help her with this very special project, stating, “I always feel so lost in big stores and have a hard time finding someone to ask for help. The guys at the Paint Depot know my name, and my kids’ names! If you go in often enough the customers know each other, which is really cool. Even though we go in for small projects, they still take the time to tell us the best way to get it done, and what we will need, they have the best tips for my DIY projects!”

Reinventing her Bedroom Space with Paint and Supplies from Santa Barbara Paint Depot

Raquel’s daughter, Elise, felt a room make-over was timely, as she wanted to create a DIY bed and bookshelf to match her Pottery Barn vanity.

With product support from Santa Barbara Paint Depot and supervision from her dogs, Elise painted her bookshelf with Fresh Start Primer and Benjamin Moore’s Regal Pearl finish. She turned the dark-colored bookshelf into a brand new piece of furniture.

A Dreamy Finished Product!

Sometimes a picture speaks 1,000 words. Elise has a dreamy room that would make any young adult want to spend all sorts of time in her room! The finished product is beautiful, Elise! We hope you enjoy your new furniture and want to know if you always keep your room this clean?
