Hello World, Rob here. A few weekends ago I experienced something I only thought existed on the video displayed on Google’s career page. Go to it. On there, you’ll virtually experience the supposed joy that comes with employment at our friendly overlord.  Creating apps, exploring data queries, and everything our technologically overloaded minds believe we […]

I stepped outside today and the weather was so brisk that I had to walk back inside and grab a sweater.  This my friend, is my happy place.  I grew up in the Midwest and have always appreciated everything our four seasons had to offer.  Now that I’m an adult I’m still experiencing all of the seasons’ unique […]

Good afternoon, Friends! Thank you for stopping by today!! I am so excited to share a company that has literally transformed our home, Romabio! Our home is made of solid brick, which is very beautiful but its natural color just wasn’t for us.  It was dark and didn’t show off our 1920’s bungalow in all […]

  • Merri - This transformation is amazing, love the the lime wash. And the floor painted black, I never would have thought of that! Did you make your mat? Also would you mind sharing where you got the potted tree? If it’s faux, that is…I do not have a green thumb.ReplyCancel

    • susan - Hi Merri, Rob here. Thanks for commenting. SQ picked the black and it’s pretty cool. Hides dirt a lot better than the white we had. She didn’t make the mat. I’ll ask. The tree is a gig from home depot. 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Robbin Williams - Good morning Rob and Susan. Can you share where you purchased both the doormats and also their sizes? Thank you both.ReplyCancel

  • Amy - Love the limewash! Am considering this look for our red brick home. I am curious…how long has it been since you painted the house and how well has it stood the test of time and weather? Have had several painters respond to this process with skepticism and I’m nervous to take the plunge.ReplyCancel

    • susan - Hi Amy,

      Rob here helping SQ keep up. We applied the lime wash last summer and it looks great. It’s held up very well. The wash isn’t actually paint, which would chip off over time, but rather a “stain” that absorbs into the brick. So I imagine the painters are basing their opinions on what they know and are simply not familiar with Romabio’s product. If you go to their site it actually explains how it works much better than I just did. 🙂
