I was recently introduced to a great new phone app (and other mobile devices) and was excited to test out it’s features in order to help me with a little home project I’ve been wanting to work on for a while now!
YP – Local Search & Gas Prices app is a wonderful tool to provide you with information on tons of different businesses in your local area, including gas stations, restaurants, retail shops, contractors, etc. And it’s FREE!
Ratings, reviews, videos and even deals across 18 million+ businesses are also included in the app, making it easy to explore and select businesses that offer the products and services you need to make your home project a reality.
You’ll be able to find any vendor you might need for your upcoming home projects including, but not limited to: seamstress, gardeners, organizers, plumbers, contractors etc.
For my home decor project I was able to find Todd from A Job Well Done who is a professional handyman.
Here is a sneak peek at the project I’m working on. The white louver door was painted red.
Here is the before picture. I’ll post the during and after pictures on two others posts to keep you updated.
Any guesses on what I’m making??
I’m excited to get working on this project, keep you updated on my progress and show you my completed project!
