HGTV Magazine

I went to get the mail on Saturday and waiting inside was the October/November issue of HGTV magazine.

I did one of those things where you stand in the driveway and tear open the mail. You can’t even wait until you get in the house.

Because this was inside!

I’m like totally famous! Ha. Not really. But it was really cool to see my nightstand project in there. I had sent a few things to the magazine so long ago that I don’t even remember doing it. Then, when we were in Spain, HGTV magazine emailed me to say they were considering running the photo in their Letters column and asked me a few questions about the project. I guess I did a decent enough job of waxing poetic about green paint because it made the final cut!

I like to think of Anna Wintour in The September Issue scrutinizing my nightstands. And Anne Hathaway coming in wearing a green sweater and not even knowing WHY.

The cropping of the photo is less than ideal, but what can you do.

Here’s the full before/after in case you never saw them:

And currently, they’re in the boys’ room, holding lots of PS3 games and warding off predators.

The color is Barnyard Grass by Behr, in case you’re curious.

And for the record, I’ve really enjoyed the magazine. It’s not as intense as a true shelter magazine and I like the DIY tips and the real estate articles, too. Plus they leverage the heck out of their TV personalities and it’s fun to get a better sense of their personalities in print.

Do you read it?

    So cool, I love the color it’s bright, fun, refreshing and most importantly not so serious.

    A friend of mine got me a subscription to the HGTV magazine about six months ago, and I’ve really enjoyed getting it every couple of months. I’m with you – I totally dig peaking behind the curtain with their designers since I’m an avid HGTV watcher (addict, if you will). The nightstands rock (great job!). And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the green.
