This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Valspar Paint.Well, the paint colors are IN! We hit up Lowes this week and the painting has commenced!
(if you're joining us for the first time, we're repainting Lucy's room and trying to find the perfect color for her walls (from Valspar Paints). You can see our process here and here)
Thank you for the design ideas and input. It's been so fun to read your comments. Some of us were thinking along the same lines. But before I share the results.....
CONGRATS to winner of the 2nd $100 gift card to Lowe's!......
#117 - Theresa! who said: I love the "Top Banana!" It's fun to say too!
I couldn't agree more Theresa. In fact, it was one of the colors I went with!!
Here's how it went down....
On Saturday, our whole family headed over to Lowe's where I picked out my Valspar Paints for Lucy's room. Yep, I wasn't content with only one color.....I needed 3! Variety makes life exciting, right?
Because I had used the online Valspar color tool, I knew exactly what color tones I wanted (and wished I had done something more to my hair. Oh well. Painting-day hair?)
I browsed these three sections in particular:
AND.....here's what I chose!
The perfect colors for Lucy's room!
The main colors for her walls:
I also chose accent colors for her furniture and other decor:
Am I crazy? It's going to be a colorful room! But I'm excited about it.
I set-up shop in our garage with gallons of paint:
a variety of painting supplies:
And we started painting! The whole family was involved again. Lucy and Owen did more cheerleading than actual painting. But they peeked in on us from time to time:
Yep! One wall is now TOP BANANA yellow!
Another wall looks lovely in ICY BLUE. We thought that crown molding would add the perfect touch, so we painted the molding in ULTRA WHITE and Casey did his handiwork at the ceiling:
And for the final wall, it looks something like this.....
Wonder what we're up to? You'll have to wait to see! BUT....in the meantime,
