Is there a room in your house you'd like to paint?

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! I can’t believe how much difference a fresh coat (or two) of beautiful paint makes!!

Let’s take a refreshing gander at the “BEFORE” shots of what had turned into a fairly chaotic mess in the middle of my house:


YIKES, right? Here’s what it looks like now:


I still have a lot of work to turn this playroom into a dining room, but I am SO INSPIRED by the beautiful start. I absolutely love the color, Lavender Cloud. It looks a little bit girly with that dollhouse bookshelf, but soon that item will be moved upstairs along with the rest of the kid stuff, and I think the color is going to make a beautiful palette for a cheerful but sophisticated dining room. Especially in the winter, when it gets so dark and dreary out!

I found the whole process to be really quite simple, from choosing the color, to buying the supplies and getting the room painted. One thing that totally shocked me once I got started was realizing how dirty the WALLS were. Once I took down all of the drawings that my daughter had taped all over the place I was horrified! Look at these before and after shots…

  1. Man i want to awaken my dining room walls and get rid of the chocolate that is suppose to be awesome. Well it was when there was no furniture in the home when i first bought it but now it's drab

  2. I want to redo my bedroom! For the last year I've been thinking about painting my bedroom white with one big wall red. I want to de-clutter it and creat a mediation space. You just reminded me I need to get working.

    Thanks for the chance!
