sisters who are in Congress may trade spaces; show-brand paint is now for sale.
Two sisters might trade spaces this fall for Trading Spaces, and this is newsworthy because they are also members of the House of Representatives. Loretta Sanchez and Linda Sanchez, the first sisters to serve in Congress, “were said to be considering swapping apartments on the room makeover program this fall,” Judy Woodruff reported on yesterday’s Inside Politics, citing a Roll Call report. Meanwhile, even if you’re not a member of Congress with lots of spare time on your hands to tape a reality TV show that gives you a free $1,000 makeover, you can now get Trading Spaces in your house, sort of. The show’s brand of paint is on shelves at True Value hardware stores this month, along with brushes and other accessories. A VP for the store says they “are adding this nationally recognized branded paint line for customers who want a top-quality designer paint at an affordable price. The paint will cost much less than other upscale paint brands.” If you want the insanely technical, nearly incomprehensible details about how “[e]fficiencies gained using Fourth Shift systems have allowed prominent paint supply manufacturer True Value Manufacturing to expand and aggressively seek additional outside business” such as branded paint, read this press release.
