Our guest bedroom gets a makeover - love the power of paint! Painted floors too! Soft blue is the perfect backdrop for a fun color like orange!

Our mudroom was plain and boring. We added some molding, a bench, and a pretty blue on the walls. Read more at decorandthedog.blogspot.com

With a lot of paint and a fun pop of color in the back of the bookshelves I gave this tired desk a new life.

Gail's Living Room

My fireplace was downright ugly. I have hated it for years. The brick, the stone mantel and hearth. I changed the facade of the fireplace and gave everything a fresh coat of white paint.

Gail's Kitchen

My kitchen is dark with only one tiny window. Although I like oak cabinets, I felt I needed to lighten it up a LOT! I painted the cabinets, the floor, the ceiling fan, and even the countertops.

Jamie's Bedroom

My daughter went away to college and basically never came back. After graduation, she relocated. Her room had remained the same as it was the day she graduated high school. It was definitely time for a change. I also painted the window/door trim!!

Maryann's Dresser

We found an old dresser in a storage auction we purchased. It had great character, but I wanted to update it. I painted the base of the dresser a creamy white and replaced the hardware. I love how stunning it is now!

Maryann's Bedroom

We finally painted our boring builder white walls with a gorgeous blue. To create a stunning feature wall I took some of the blue wall paint and mixed with with some silver and pearl acrylic paint. I used this paint with a stencil for our focal wall

Maryann's Bathroom

I painted our downstairs bathroom the perfect beachy blue. I love how it makes the board and batten in the room pop.
