For more colorful news, be on the lookout for new videos of ‘How to”—a project Sonia and Sherwin-Williams are presently working on.  In this new series, first of its kind, Sonia explains step by step how to choose the perfect DIY  (aka do it yourself) color, as well as the complementary shine and finish, and demonstrates how the use of the brush alone can make the difference. The “How to series which was filmed in Cleveland, Ohio, recreated the possible obstacles encountered by first-time ‘do-it-yourself’ decorators.  To view the series, subscribe to www.youtube.com/soniavelasquez.
