Stroke of GeniusOctober 1, 2005 By: Carrie Watson American Salon
Yearning to give your salon a new coat of paint, but feeling a little hesitant? After all, your favorite tool is probably a pair of scissors—not a paintbrush. Worry not. With some help from Artists Room, a Web site that sells paint-by-number mural kits, you can brighten a bland treatment room by painting a border of whimsical bubbles, or a collage of retro flowers on the back of a dull-looking door. Artists Room lets you choose from several different mural designs, such as hearts, flowers or birds, and then mails you a kit containing a pattern, transfer paper, suggested color palette, paintbrush and instructions. All you have to do is trace, then paint. For $48 plus the cost of paint, this is one small investment that can help make your salon a cheerful, colorful place that promises to delight clients of all ages.
