A while ago I asked you guys to help me pick a paint color for my "dining room" -- which for the last zillion years has actually been a play room. I just spent two days moving furniture, boxing up old toys, and painting (with the help of an awesome friend, who not only brought her own edging brush but a bottle of wine!) ... and I am THRILLED!...more
Our front bedroom has been many things since we have moved into our house 4 years ago. Ever since I moved my office desk into the living room from the front bedroom, the room has been a "catch all" for all of my projects, extra home decor, and my hoard of craft supplies. I wanted to give it a fresh feeling & make it a room of relaxation where I could go and read a good book, nap, & even blog. In fact I'm currently writing this post in the front bedroom & I'm obsessed with how cozy and relaxing this space is....more
My master bedroom makeover is finally complete! You've been so very patient while I finished every little step along the way, but I hope you think the reveal is well worth the wait. It looks so different from before, it's all light and airy and just my style. I have no idea what style to call it, it's just me. A little farmhouse, a little cottagey, a few modern touches, and a lot of handmade goodness all around. As with all of my room makeovers, I start by choosing my colors, and then pretty much just go with my gut after that....more
Some of you may recall my previous post where I was in the process of selecting a color for our Master Bathroom, using Glidden® Paint. Well, this is it, today is the day that I get to reveal our newly painted and decorated Master Bath! The Glidden Paint color that I went with is called Whispering Wheat. Did you guess that I would choose that one?!...more
As you know I recently asked all of you for advice on redoing our home office. It has been the sore thumb in our house, and we weren’t really sure where to start, especially when it came to choosing paint....more
So, remember when I shared with you that we were painting our master bathroom? I told you the walls were burgundy, but I didn't show you any pictures. Here is a nice little sampling of pictures of our master bath before:We knew we wanted to go with a blue, but when you walk into Home Depot to look at color choices, blue translates to something like a thousand color choices. With the help of the Color Tools from My Colortopia and Glidden® paint's simplified color palette, we came up with this:...more
We have lived in our home for 19 1/2 years. We moved in when Tessa was 6 months old. When we moved in back then we never imagined that almost 20 years later we would still be living here. But life happens, plans change and you end up with wonderful neighbors you can't ever imagine leaving. A few years after moving in we decorated our master bedroom. I wanted to create a little garden sanctuary. This is what it looked like. Master Bedroom I loved it and I have loved it for about 17 years but it was time for a change....more
Can you believe the difference?? I have been living with the change for about a month now and really love it. Everyone who sees it says wow! I know I love it and that's what is most important. Sadly the bathroom is so small I can't get in to take lots of different angles for a real show and tell. I think the two pictures that I do have tell it all though...frumpy and kiddish to a great farmhouse bathroom. I was really nervous about this whole bathroom redo because I am absolutely AWFUL at making decisions....more
Today's the day that I finally get to reveal the girls' bedroom makeover that I've been working on for several months. You may remember my inspiration picture and the color palette that I was leaning toward in this "Paint Plans" teaser post back in July. I am so excited to show you how well the Glidden® paint 'My Image Inspiration' Tool worked because I could not be more happy with how the bedroom turned out!! As I mentioned before, we decided to make over one of the bedrooms while transitioning the younger girls back into a room where they could have bunk beds set up....more
Our Glidden® paint and MyColortopia.com room project is finished! Well, almost. I still have some pictures and artwork to hang, maybe add a fun accent rug, and there's one more piece of wainscoting we're trying to hunt down, but the biggest part of the improvements are done. Check out the wainscoting. When I showed my husband, Randy, the sample pictures I shared in the previous post, I told him to ignore the wainscoting/trim treatments, and to just pay attention to the color and overall feel of the rooms....more
