My name is Jerry Baker, I'm 69 years old and I live in Dunnellon, Florida. I've lived here for a little over 12 years, moving here from Youngstown, Ohio.

On moving to Florida I started my own business remodeling and refurbishing homes and apartments in a three County area.

I also worked for a remodeling...

Learned electronics in the Air Force….traveled the world.

Wallcoverings Tranform A Space

Posted 12-09-2014 at 12:25 PM by RHeat (Wall Decor N More)

Walls are the biggest surface location in a space. Like a giant canvas, they provide you the innovative freedom to fashion whatever type of area you want. You could make your walls subdued, you may stand out.

After several unfulfilling jobs and after being laid off several times, I ventured into the old family business of painting, restarting my painting career in 1991 as the Purple Paint Co. Most of my work is residential...
