Painting and other Home Related Resources

Finding the right information on the internet can a difficult chore.

Most people don't surf the internet looking to buy things, they search it for information.

Usually, however, searching for information via the large search engines can be fruitless and frustrating. You receive almost entirely commercial sites trying to sell you information instead of giving it to you.

Since this is a pet peeve of mine, I've scoured the web searching for useful, relevent sites that provide exactly what you're looking for.

Information.

I've tried to divide these sites into a few convenient categories, to make searching easier.

For those of you who are looking to buy things online, I've also assembled a few of the better online merchants that I've found for decorating your home.
