You know when you start to see the same paint pen or paintbrush in your home for so long that you don’t want to touch it anymore?
That’s when it’s time to start getting creative.
The best way to do that is by painting your own home.
“There are a lot of people who have done it successfully, and a lot who haven’t,” said Lisa Loeffler, founder of the Paint Pens and Paint Paint Shop blog, which is aimed at helping people find their creative voice.
A new online book by Loefler and her husband, Rob, details how to paint your own house with paint pens and paint brushes and how you can start your own business.
“You can learn all you want about the history of how things were done, but you can learn the process and the process is to just make it up as you go along,” Loefer said.
“It’s a fun process to get up to speed on the art and the craft and how to make things work.”
The Loefsons started using paint pens to paint their house when they moved to Los Angeles from Ohio in 2000.
They started using the pens and brushes to paint all sorts of things, including windows, ceilings, walls, and more.
Now, they use them on all sorts the decor in their house, and they’re selling a set of paint pens online for $20, which includes a set for the kitchen and bathroom.
Loefflers, who lives in Phoenix, Arizona, also sells the paint pens through her website.
For some people, it’s not a hobby to begin with.
But for others, it becomes an obsession.
“When I started painting, I was like, ‘Oh, I’m gonna be painting for the rest of my life,'” Loeffer said.
“I’m trying to get to a place where I can do that now, and it’s an opportunity to get started.”
