I spent the day with Lisa LaPorta from HGTV’s Designed to Sell

Lisa LaPortaI have always wanted to redo a room in my house, but have never gotten around to it.  So a few weeks back I received an email that made my day!

I’m reaching out to you on behalf of Lisa LaPorta, HGTV designer and host of “Designed to Sell” & “Bang for Your Buck”.

Lisa has picked her 5 favorite bloggers in the California area looking to do consultations with and she’s a huge fan of you! If you’re open to it, Lisa would like to spend a few hours with you and give you a design consultation in your own home as well as provide products on behalf of KILZ paints and primers.

Of course I was very excited and couldn’t wait for Lisa to come to my house! I could use the consultation! There is so much I wanted to do to my house and couldn’t wait for her to come.

Lisa arrived at my house this morning around 9am and the moment she walked in she said “Lets get started!” I love her passion and energy and got very excited hearing about all her ideas!

We started off talking about possibly doing window treatments, but decided to focus our budget on furniture! and accents.


And furniture we did! We decided to g with a new coffee table, TV stand, side table and even a new dining room set! I also love the KILZ paint Lisa and I picked out! It is called Tahini.

Here is Lisa and I with the car packed!


I am so excited for this fantastic opportunity and I can not wait to share more about our day and the fun items we got. I also can’t wait to see the finished rooms!!
