DIY RH Reclaimed Gray Oak Table

Did you know that colors only come from two sources? Light and pigment. Do any of you know what the primary colors are for pigment? Red, Yellow, and Blue. And for light there are three different primary colors? Red, Green, and Blue. To understand light, look at a rainbow. To understand pigment, simply pick up a can of paint. I've decided to broaden my horizons incase you haven't noticed, I'm asking because I'm going to start manufacturing a line of wall paints. I don't know how it will happen. I don't know who will do it for me. Maybe I'll do it myself? All I really do know is that I love color and I'm going to learn everything I can about it. I'm going to make the most beautiful paint the world has ever known. So here's a question for anyone who cares to answer. Would you buy paint from a third party? If so, what colors interest you?

DIY Rustic Brown Bar Top

How do we define freedom? For me, its in being an artist. I'm not the kind of artist that paints portraits, but I wish I was. I don't sculpt and I don't really care to. I don't do pottery and when I do, it doesn't feel like art. Most people don't even recognize what I do as art until they experience one of my pieces. Here's what I do. I invent colors and I design furniture. For me, when I'm creating and beautifying a piece of furniture its as simple as taking a breath. The only sensation I can compare it to is that feeling you get when you're sitting on an airplane and the jet takes off and you suddenly find yourself giddy, breathless, excited,  and high above the clouds. Thats when the vision becomes clear in my minds eye. I take that breath and hold it till I can't hold it anymore. Then when I release the vision into the reality of this world for your physical eyes to see, something magical happens.

Oak Kitchen Makeover: Strip & Stain

Now that I've kind of told you guys the business side of my invention, I'd like to tell you about a few books I think will help you. I highly recommend reading, "Lean Start Up," by Eric Ries. I would actually read that book one chapter at a time and alternate between that and Steve Jobs biography. The reason I would do this is because the rules you learn from Lean Startup are all the rules Jobs breaks and how it gives him a lot of obstacles. I'm not sure how many of you know this, but Jobs was kicked out of his own company. Of course he makes a come back, but that's mostly because he learns how to follow these rules.
