my interview with a paintbrush

sara peterson: You’ve played such an important role in creating this issue—thank you! Many people will say it’s your best work yet. You focused primarily on painting old furniture. What was it like to breathe new life into all those past-their-prime pieces? paintbrush: I felt like a hero! Did you see that poor, sad nightstand on page 80? She’s high-gloss cherry red now, and she looks like a million bucks. I don’t mean to brag, but what other $12 hardware store tool can do that? sp: True—you’re the champ of cheap makeovers. And you look great, by the way. Love the pink. It’s hard to believe you just completed a bunch of before-and-after projects, including the big orange hutch on our cover. I’ve worked with paintbrushes that conked out after one assignment.…

get to know the stars of good bones

1 Karen and Mina live right next to each other in Indianapolis, IN. “I had my house first!” says Mina. “Mom moved in next door so we could be close.” Their reno career began when Mina enlisted Karen’s help to redo her home in 2007. Once the fix-up was complete, the two were hooked on restoring old houses. 2 With Mina’s reno under their (tool) belts, the women decided to start their own company, Two Chicks and a Hammer, rehabbing dilapidated houses in Indianapolis. They’ve restored more than 40 so far, working on nine at once at their busiest point. “We love our city because of the patient, kind, and considerate people who live here,” says Karen. “And it has food, music, arts, and a sports scene that rivals any place…

dear hgtv magazine

My home is black, white, and gray with pops of color, much like the Wilkinses’ house in March’s “The Secret Ingredient Is….” When I moved in, I was wary of the existing black bedroom walls and planned to repaint them. But once my furniture and accessories were in place, the walls made everything shine. I’ve gotten so many compliments on how it all comes together, and it was wonderful to see someone else embracing “the dark side” in their home. —Stephanie Calinski, Portland, OR Your magazine is my favorite. Every story encourages me to use fun prints and bright colors. My most-loved feature is “Wow! What Color Is That?” I like that you can use the three bold colors on each page as inspiration for putting a palette together. Brilliant! —Kare…
