On this week’s episode we spoke with Lisa Oestreicher of Oestreicher Architectural Paint Research.  Lisa discussed methods of paint research as well as how changes in a home’s paint often indicates historic events in the home such as marriages, celebrations, or new ownership. We also discussed the importance of picking an accurate paint color as well as finish when replicating historic methods.
