Kids' Bathroom

So the kiddos' bathroom is done...for the most part. The main part is done, but I'm still doing some finishing touches in the bath area and the toilet area. Like I figured, paint was really what it needed. Of course, all the fun stuff comes naturally, but to take the next step and paint completes it. Painting can seem daunting, but the difference it can make is totally worth the time it takes....more

A Soothing Boy Bedroom

Thank goodness Sherwin-Williams sponsored and helped get this bedroom redone! I showed you my Whoops! room... remember? A little bright, if I recall. Thankfully, that photo is all I have left to see of it. It's now calm and much more soothing and perfect for Louis to grow up in....more

Master Bedroom Reveal

My master bedroom makeover is complete, and I'm so in love! My husband is even more in love with me more after I was able to pull off this design on a budget, and I have to admit it was fun working on it with him! Click on over to have a look back at my master bedroom inspiration post. Wow, I would not go back to the dark side...aka, the non-decorated side! The before picture was actually pretty flattering, but I promise you it was a hot mess in real life....more

Our Bedroom Finally Looks Civilized

It's been a long week of home renovations. Per usual, I always grossly underestimate how much time and energy a project will take. We're running on little sleep and too much caffeine right now. But our room? Oh my. It's like we imported it from another house. Hardly recognizable compared to what it was before. Let me just remind you what that looked like......more

Light, Bright, Beautiful

So... let's do a bit of a recap on that last post.  Remember the streaky brown room?  We used the Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer tool to make orange walls, but then decided on Superior Paint color 7070 Gray Screen. Well... feast your eyes on the new room.  Oh boy.  it's light and bright and BEAUTIFUL. I'm loving it. For this to give a more open room we had to play around with the furniture... so I first started by moving the future around....more

After: The Creepy Bathroom Remodel

My new bathroom is finished! It is so nice to have a “non-creepy” bathroom that constantly gets used now! This basement bathroom is bright, crisp, clean, and we absolutely love how it turned out. Let’s get started with the before and after pictures…the old medicine cabinet? Gone. I used some pallet wood to frame a plain mirror, and it looks so much better!...more

Estate Sale Furniture Paint Transformation

My sunroom has been transformed with color! Remember my estate sale find that needed a little makeover? Wow, what a difference paint makes and thanks to the Sherwin-Williams Color Visualizer, it was so simple to find the perfect shade of blue. Intense Teal to be exact. I couldn't believe how easy it was to choose color online. With a million and one blue possibilities, it saved me tons of hair pulling....more

My Patio Project

This DIY patio project ended up being a lot easier than I initially expected. Here’s what I did. First, I visited my local Sherwin-Williams store to pick up my exterior surface primer and paints. Since I had already selected my paint colors using the ColorSnap Studio™ for iPad app, picking up the “Extra White” white for the chairs and the “Center Stage” green for the table took me about 15 minutes....more

Our Transformation Project!

You guys! Today, I'm finally going to release the much-sought-after AFTER photos of our Sherwin-Williams Transformation Project! It's been a long time coming, and I hope you're ready for a serious influx of photos. Earlier, I shared how I wanted to find the perfect combination and balance of cheerful and peaceful tones. Taking the room from drab to fab--I think we succeeded....more

Dining Room - Tickled Pink

You guys didn't disappoint when I offered up our Dining Room wall color to your vote, and I can't thank you enough for your great feedback! After a family vote too, we went with my original plan, but gave it a kick in the pants! Oh, yes, we did! If you've read this blog for more than a week, then you know we are not afraid of color (hello, navy bathroom and green door!)....more
