(Definition – “Punch List” – A Punch List is a document prepared near the end of a construction project, listing work that is not conforming to the contract specifications that the contractor must complete prior to final payment. )

(Definition – “Bella – Bella is related to the Italian and Latin words for Beautiful!)

“Bella Wow List” – Everyone knows what a “Punch List” is when building or remodeling a new home. But Very Few people have a deep understanding of a … “Bella Wow List”!

“Free Weekend of Cheap Thrills” – Here is your assignment:

(1) Grab a Roll of Blue Tape.

(2) Tell you spouse we are going to have some “Cheap Thrills” this weekend.

(3) Then… hold their hand and walk throughout your Home, “Identifying Unique Areas of Opportunity” where you would like to Test the Idea of introducing a Unique… “Color, Texture or Effect”.

Ok… the guys might not be into this at first, but trust me, you have their curiosity up…they will follow your lead!

(4) When you Discover a “Unique Area of Opportunity” place a  “Large Piece of Blue Tape” at that location.

Finite… You have Successfully Created a “Bella Wow List” – Thats it!

Now forget about what you just did,  take you spouse out for the weekend and have some Fun!

ImportantDO NOT remove the Blue Tape for a few days, let the idea simmer, this process is nudging you out of your Interior Design Comfort Zone…

(5) Finally, if you both agree that you are open to exploring the idea of a New Decorative Finish, then give Bella Faux Finishes a call to schedule a meeting. After the meeting, you can keep a few samples and test them for effect.

All of this is for Free and it definitely  can lead to a… “Cheap Thrill”!
