Help me Paint Lucy's Room, HUGE final Valspar GIVEAWAY and WINNER from past Giveaway (CLOSED)

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Valspar Paint.

Well folks Lucy's room is finished! Thank you for helping me along the way.

For the past month....
* You helped me brainstorm about the perfect color choice.
* You voted for your perfect color choice.
* I shared the colors we choose and showed you our painting progress.

And now......it's time for the big reveal!

But first,

CONGRATS to winner of the 3rd $100 gift card to Lowe's!......
#46 - Embily! who said: i love it! i think it's just perfect that you chose a few different colors to paint her room! -Emily F

Thanks Emily. I'm happy I went with multiple colors too. It adds so much..."fun" to the room.
Okay, enough chatting. Time for pictures.

But first, let's remember how dull and boring Lucy's room used to be.

The BEFORE:
and.......

The AFTER!

Using these Valspar paints colors from the Valspar color tool, we transformed a boring white room into something colorful, fun, and still girly:

I also chose accent colors for her furniture and other decor:
LUCY's NEW Room!

Come on in and I'll give you a tour.....
Here's what we used:
* ICY BLUE on the left side of the room
* TOP BANANA on the right side wall
* Accented the back wall with vertical stripes of CITY STORM and ULTRA WHITE. The white paint is a flat finish and the gray is semi-gloss so that the stripes pop out a little more when you're in the room.
Of course a beautiful touch to any room is nice wood molding. We added crown molding to the entire ceiling and framed the window with additional trim. All the moldings and doors were painted with ULTRA WHITE, semi-gloss.
Crown molding and other framing are not hard to do. You do need some tools and a simple "how-to" book or tutorial. But with a coat of ULTRA WHITE on there, it adds such class and pop to the painted walls. I absolutely love it and will continue adding it to more rooms in our house.
My favorite improvement to the room is Lucy's kitchen/dining area and the "outdoor" market. I repainted her old furniture with Valspar paints as well! I used ULTRA WHITE for most of the pieces and accented them with SCARLET SUN and RAPIDS:
We added a vintage mirror to the wall next to her door, with a shelf and cups for dressing up in colorful beads.
And guess what? I used my Valspar paints to create artwork too! I painted SCARLET SUN on a large canvas and used ULTRA WHITE to paint large dandelions over the top.
It's been a busy month. But I love the results.

Thank you for helping me go from......
To:
Lucy now has the best bedroom in the house. Lucky girl.

BUT WAIT....the fun isn't over yet! Now it's your turn to be lucky!

The paint makeover is fantastic! I think my favorite part (can I even choose?) is the dandelion wall art. I've been thinking of doing something similar in my home - thank you for the extra inspiration!

ClaraE said...

Awesome makeover. I was a little wary of some of your color choices but it looks great finished. Just a perfect and fun kids room.

Nancy said...

What a great makeover and such fun colors... We used Valspar paint in our entire house and loved the way it went on...

Mad Sewing Love said...

OMG! That room is amazing! I am in need of a makeover for my lil' girls room & am stealing a few of your ideas. LOVE!

Katie said...

I LOVE the stripes! I know they're a labor of love too because all of that taping...sheesh. I'm not the best with straight lines. =) Now would you mind hopping over and doing my whole house because it kind of looks like a bachelor pad... when I've been with my boyfriend for 9 years! UGH!

I am blown away. I didn't know how you could make all those colors come together, but it's amazing!! This makes me want to redo my house!

P said...

I love the stripes! I really would not have had the guts to go with grey, but they compliment the bright colors so well! I love how the stripes are echoed in the stripes on the awning! Fabulous! Are you doing another room?? Great ideas!

Ana said...

You know, I wasn't so sure about the yellow... but it looks great! Thanks for the giveaway.

My name is Nan, said...

My favorite is the stripes. What a great idea. Seeing it all together is what does it. If you would tell me that you were using all these colors before I would be like your hubby and question but after it is what makes the room. Fabulous Job!

The Kay Family said...

Love it all!! Especially the black accent shelf and the shelving that holds the food. Great job!

shana said...

so, so, so fun! she must just love it . . . and i'm guessing you might even enjoy a little quiet time as she plays nicely in her fun new room! great job! {and congrats on being done, that's always wonderful!}
blessings,

MaryG said...

Dana, you never disappoint! My favorite things about the room are the color combination (cool!) and the dressing station with mirror. I love everything else, too!
Maryg004@yahoo.com

Bethany said...

I love this, the colors, the design, everything! I can't imagine all the work that must have gone into it... well worth it in the end though!

Ali said...

Love it! You are so creative and talented. The colors are awesome! :)

karen said...

i am totally inspired by all the color choices and how they came together in the end. my favorite paint is the grey wall and i love the market awning! i'll have to rething my girl's room now since that is our summer project!

Eric and Danielle said...

Wow! I could see why your husband was leery. I would have never put all that together, but it looks fabulous! I love her little market area. Simply beautiful.

Dana said...

I love, love, love, love it! Such fun color choices and I love that the kitchen matches. Very bold and very daring. I wish I could pick colors like this.

Kristi said...

Love that you put molding up in her room- I am a firm believer that a house is not finished unless it has ALL the trim! It just looks so much more 'pulled together'
I also love the idea to paint the striped in different finishes to make them pop more! Beautiful room! Perfect for kiddos!!

Andrew, Erin, and Audrey in Alaska said...

LOVE IT! She will have so much fun playing in there.

Gary, Christie, Anna and Izzy said...

What a fun room! And I love the kitchen/dining makeover. What a lucky little girl!

LDM said...

So beautiful and FUN!! Gives me such inspiration to finish my kids rooms...Dinosaurs for my boy's and girlie pink/yellow for my girls'. All three are so excited but remind me daily that he is a BOY and they are the GIRLS (they don't want any confusion over who gets the ruffles and who gets the dinosaurs!).

Mama Bear said...

INSPIRATIONAL!!! Love the stripes, I've been wanting to paint my bathroom in a deep gray but thought it would be too much.... after seeing Lucy's stripes, I think that would look perfect. Awesome job mama!!

Kristen said...

It's gorgeous AND fun. Can you come do my daughter's room? Great job!

burgess said...

LOVE this make-over! So many great ideas, from the stripes, to using the same color palette on the furniture and wall art. I have been toying around with moving my 3-year-old from his nursery into a "big boy" room. Lots of inspiration here!

C. Jaeger said...

You did a great job! I love the grey, blue, and yellow colors together. The pop of finishes it all off wonderfully. How did you get your stripes so perfect? Amazing!

jill said...

so cute, my favorite part is the painted furniture, it really ties it all together

Kris said...

The room is FANTASTIC!!! I love the colors, they look perfect!!! My favorite part is your attention to detail, painting her accessories with the paint colors was awesome, and i love the painting!!! Lucy is one lucky girl!

Brittany said...

It looks wonderful! I love how you schanzzed up her play kitchen and market area! Cute cute cute!

Tara said...

Such fun colors! It's a little too exciting for our tastes, but I love that there are ideas in there that we could use too for our kids' rooms!

Nicole said...

Such a great room, she's a lucky little girl!

hawkeyejlp said...

Her room is amazing! I love that each wall is a different color...I need to "fun" up my newly-minted five year-old's room.

Skye O. said...

Love how you can put so many colors together and have it look fabulous! Very challenging to me sometimes. Now I'm wanting to re-do my baby girl's room.

The Hillbilly Housewife said...

Adorable!! I love the window and awning. GReat idea!

tconlan said...

HOLY COW!!! this is fabulous! I just love your color combination and all of your fun creative touches. The stripes are perfection and love the crown molding!

Julie said...

~linds said...

I LOVE it. I love your sense of color. Lucy is a lucky girl!

Mary said...

What a transformation! Your sense of color and design are amazing. Thanks for the inspiration!

Jennifer said...

I absolutely love it! I have been on my husband to paint our kids' rooms and make them FUN for about a year and a half! You are so inspiring! I love the little table and chairs and the way everything just pops, without being overwhelming.

Great job!
Jennifer

Summer said...

Wow! I love the colors and it is a very very fun room. I cringed when I saw the taped off stripes I have done that in a few rooms and know what an effort is, but WOrth it.. everytime. Lucy is so lucky!!

Rachel • cREaTe said...

LOVE the "outdoor market". especially the canopy [i'm realizing now you made it!] & the window!!! i have 2 old windows [glass out] that i'm waiting to use ... what a CUTE CUTE idea to use it like that in a play room! fun fun fun! p.s. this summer/fall we'll either be painting the exterior OR finishing the basement [or if i'm really lucky - BOTH]. $500 in valspar paints would be a lil' dream come true. :) thanks for the chance!

Christy said...

The before and after shots are amazing! Such a transformation. Want to come to my house next? We have plenty of rooms that need to be painted!

Nicole said...

Absolutely fantastic! And I love how you included the furniture with just a touch of color here and there - she must be one happy (and certainly lucky!) little girl! Thanks for the encouragement to get going on my own makeover projects :)

Oh, and if I could get my husband on board, I would love a striped wall here or there - great idea!

emily ann. said...

Dana that is absolutely lovely! My favorite part has to be the little outdoor market/kitchen/house area. What little girl wouldn't LOVE that! :) I also really liked the red - it surprised me! :)

Amy said...

Love the color combination! My favorite is the dress up area.

Bec said...

I love it! Fun, fun, fun!!

Emma said...

i love the storage under the window, brilliant way to use that dead space!

shelly said...

To be honest, I wasn't sure about the final choices when you showed them off, but it turned out really well! And yes, the room looks like tons of fun!

yasdnilotis said...

I love it! It's so fun! It makes me want to hire someone to finish the projects my husband keeps putting off! :o)

Genevieve said...

wow i absolutely love her room! perfect. it all looks so good!! love it

Jenny said...

I LOVE the window and the little awning! And of course, the colors are beautiful! Great job. And kudos to Casey.

What I could do with a $500 gift card to Lowe's!!!

Jen said...

Love it--especially the window! Such a cute idea.

alliemamabird said...

I love it! I just cleared a space in our house to make a play area for my sons. I'm ready to paint and decorate and your beautiful photos are so inspiring. Hope your daughter is enjoying her new room.

jacksonx03 said...

I LOVE lucy's room. I did stripes in one of my girls room and loved it. I especially love the darker gray color, it's becoming a favorite!

Nikki said...

Love how brave you are with all those colors! Looks great!

Our house is 110 years old, and could really use an update. That $500 Lowe's gift card would definitely be put to good use at our house!

eatmoresmores said...

I'm sure that was a big job, but Lucy's room turned out so cute. She must be thrilled. Its amazing that there's not a speck of pink in it.
Alice

Sarah said...

I love how it's gorgeous and fun but not too girly. I don't think it's something she will grow out of quickly and of course you don't want to do this again soon.

Rachel said...

What I love is that you are brave enough to color all the walls differently and it looks so GOOD. Love that icy blue!

Sarah said...

Ok seriously, come to my house I will let you do whatever you want!! I have free labor(my husband is very helpful!) and if I win I have $500 !

Christina Davis said...

Wow! I'm jealous of Lucy new room. I want one!!

Jessica said...

i love that color combo. i can see why your hubbie was a bit nervous, but you really pulled it all together. it's a great room that is not all puffy and pink but very feminine at the same time.
i'd love to win this...esp. since there are a few pressing projexcts at home that my dad can help fix while he is staying with us during my hubbie's PT rehab from MX

Safira said...

I am totally loving the fabric choices too! What a great mix of colors and prints! Congrats on a job well done!

blythe said...

beautiful! i would love this for my own room!

sarah p said...

i am in love with that room! so jealous- lucy is a real lucky little lady!

indywriter said...

Wow! I'm sure that was a lot of work. But it looks like a fun space. I just redid my oldest's room. She loved it and so do I (the last paint job just wasn't quite right, and it always bothered me).

The only problem with the beautiful new room? The little one was sad that her room wasn't remade. So now I have another room to plan.

Jeff and Meg said...

Inspiring!

Soccermom said...

Do I detect a little Knock-off Wood action on the window seat storage unit? Or did you buy it? I hope you MADE it! :) Maybe that will be in one of the room posts! :)

Randi said...

It just couldn't be cuter. I was having a hard time visualizing it all together but I love it! The awning is fantastic.

A. said...

Great color choices. I love the grey/white stripes. I've thought of stripes but never thought to use different finished for a lil something extra!

Jeff Ann Ehre & Benjamin said...

You've inspired me to start up on my unfinished painting projects!
Now I know which paint brand will work the best!

Michelle Tajchman said...

The makeover is awesome! I'd love to have that sort of creativity, you can put anything together and make it look gorgeous! What a great giveaway too, I'd love to win :)

sam said...

It looks great! Such a fun room for a little one!

MissRissa said...

Ummm...I think it's AWESOME!!!

bentl2jm said...

I love the stripes! It IS a fun room - well done!

diego y sara said...

Wow! Absolutely amazing! I love all the colors in the room.

Kelli said...

It's gorgeous!! I LOVE the outdoor market and all your artwork. You are so creative!

The WoodLand School said...

Just spectacular, Dana! So fresh, so fun ... love it!

Lipe Family said...

LOVE the paint makeover; I'm pretty sure my bold choices would never look that good together! Absolutely love the market are, as well!!

Melanie said...

I love it! I have been waiting to see the finished product!! I really love the kitchen and outdoor market. I have been thinking about a dress-up area for my 4 year old, I love the idea of the vintage mirror00 I will have to keep my eyes out for something!

Rockabilly Mom said...

I am in love with your bold colors and great room ideas! The dandelion wall art really is fantastic!

Saige said...

WOW! That looks amazing! I'm gonna have to find a way to use top banana in my house. :)

Melissa at Perry Jayne said...

Holy Moly, that's an awesome room! What fun colors! And I just LOVE what you did with her play area. So cute!

Amanda said...

Your lines are so crips and smooth, could you please share what type of painters tape you used?????

Lucy's new room is absolultey amazing! I absolutely love the use of fun colors and the fun use of the not-so-fun color. I never thought all those colors could be pulled together, but you did it and it is AWESOME!

You've definitely given me inspiration for the play room we're about to do for the boys (converting our garage as soon as the husband finishes moving everything into the shed he just finished building).

As far as Valspar paint goes, I have never seen anything that covers better and goes on smoother. We can't ever get it to go through a sprayer, but it goes on beautifully with a brush or roller. We call it "pudding-paint" in my house. It is most definitely what we'll use in the boys new playroom regardless of whether or not I win the g.c.!

VERONICA said...

Wow! Her room looks great. No better than great. love your amazing color choices.

Courtney said...

FUN FUN FUN! I would love to dive in to a few rooms in my own house and take them from boring to FUN!

Nature's Philosophy said...

I absolutely love this room! Since we're having baby #2 and both kids will need to share a room til we get a bigger place, I've been looking for ideas on gender neutral, but not "themed". This is such a great combination of colors.

If I had $500 at Lowes, I could ACTUALLY do something to the room before baby comes!

kpmattingly said...

Amazing! Looks great! I love that you used a bunch of different colors. I like the 'awning' that comes out of the wall too. Cute idea.

Sarah Kubinski said...

Dana, you are amazing!!! All of your hard work paid off--the room is fantastic! Great ideas, too!
Sarah skubinski@mac.com

Kristen W said...

My favorite part is definitely the stripes! I do love the color combination, too. And, the window above her table!

kristen@mariettavineyard.org

Kahri said...

This room looks BEAUTIFUL!!! I had no idea how you were going to bring it all together, but I love the end result. I think my favorite part is your dandelion painting! :-)

The Cottage Mama said...

Great job Dana! This room just fits your style to the max. It's almost like you took your "made" labels and turned them into an actual room.

Lucy is going to have so much fun in that room. What an amazingly wonderful modern little girls room. Go girl!

Lindsay

Brandee said...

Oh my goodness, I love this!! I'm going to have to steal some ideas. LOVE the kitchen/market - sooo cute. And the dandelion art! Awesome job.

Chandra said...

I'm so glad to finally see the room and I LOVE IT!!! It's fun, cute and still girly!! I love the dandelion canvas too.

olive said...

What a luky little girl she is. It remind me a bit of that Beautiful!

Jen said...

Just one comment about Lucy's room? How about: WOW! What a transformation. It looks fantastic.

firrkids@gmail.com

Paula Kathlyn said...

I bet she LOVES her new room! My favorite parts: The vintage mirror/ vanity area for Lucy and the framed pictures of Texas and California! What a great way to teach Lucy about the places she has lived. I might just do that with Calebs room. Being in the army, we will have a good little collection of framed states for him, lol.
GREAT job with the room...looks incredible :-)

retrogalusa@aol.com

Emily said...

I LOVE the room, especially the stripes! I could really put the Lowe's card to work in my house.

Sally said...

That is gorgeous. I really love the stripes and the awning you made.

lfhcreative said...

Such a fun and happy room! What does Lucy think? And I am in one thousand percent agreement with you on ultra white for trim. We are remodeling our house and have gone through a dozen gallons of ultra white.

Leigh Ann said...

Ok, I want this room! It is just perfect in every way. Great job!

MostlyIsobel said...

this is amazing! such great ideas and colors!

eadelarm@yahoo.com

meeyeehere said...

I had suggested the icy blue and that is because my bedroom is that color but it was called peppermint tea,I wish I had thought to do something like this to mine!! My blue is nice but this is super. You really went above and beyond! Good for you!!!500!!!! I have my fingers crossed,I sure do! Thanks and have a nice fourth of July!

jaime said...

Definitely a fun room! I bet Lucy loves it. It looks great!!
anderson_jaime@yahoo.com

Eliza Rae said...

I love it! I love how the room is girly but not to girly at the same time. So if you were to move and had to sell the house it wouldn't be pepto bismol pink like so many girl's rooms are. Does Lucy love it? I bet she does!

Blogful said...

You really have a way with bright colors. I would be nervous about going so bold, but it looks fantastic! I am inspired.

Meagan Shuttleworth said...

It's amazing what a little color will do! :) I love the modern look,....girly, yet mature as well! No need to repaint the room when she is a teen. Awesome!

I would love to win,..my house is in dire need of some paint.

Trendymeg@msn.com

Mama said...

oh that is GORGEOUS! i LOVE the pops of red - i would not have thought of that.

Bree said...

Fantastic makeover! I never would have been brave enough to try so many wall colors in one room, but you're an inspiration! You pulled it off perfectly.

I think my favorite part is the little awning.

Families Are Like Fudge said...

Lucky girl! What a difference. I can't believe you used so many paints. It was genius!

organicpatchwork said...

It looks absolutely amazing! I think my favorite part is the kitchen area all accented up with color, I especially love the fake window detail, so much fun! you did a great job, your girl is very lucky.

Miranda said...

It looks amazing, and so non traditional. I love your creativity and daringness to think outside the box! I'd love to win, need to win that $500 gift card, oh the {white} walls I have to paint!

Erin Maria said...

I love the stripes A LOT!! I would never think of that..and I love the color choices. The colors are bright but not, too, bright that you wouldn't want to sleep there. I really could use the Lowe's card to buy paint for the outside of our house. Its embrassingly bad!!

Amber said...

It turned out great!!! I am sure Lucy is thrilled to have this "fun" bedroom!

LeeAnn said...

i'm stealing some of your ideas and implementing them immediately!!

maribeth said...

i love the striped wall! and the dandelion painting! so cute!

Leigh Anne said...

You did a great job! Love it....esp the stripes. I'm a big fan of stripes :)

Rachel said...

Lucy's room turned out great! I cannot wait until we can do a room for our little girl. I love your vintage mirror, yellow is my favorite color.

Beautiful! I love the white window seat and the artwork! I also lovethe colour choices you made. Thanks for sharing!

Michael and Rachelle said...

BEAUTIFUL! I love so much about this room. Love the awning, the mirror, the bench storage under the window and the bold color choices. I am really inspired by your handpainted artwork. Makes it seem possible. My sis would just love that painting, might have to give it a try. Thanks for sharing all your hard work.

Sarah said...

I love the yellow wall! Especially next to the grey/white striped wall. It looks great!

Katie said...

I would not have been as daring using so many colors, but I think it turned out great! I'm so thankful for creative women like you who can inspire me to be more adventurous!

Tasha said...

It all goes together so beautifully!! I absolutely love the color combinations

Mrs B said...

I love the stripes - especially the yellow striped fabric from IKEA. I just bought a few yards myself!

Desiree said...

My favorite part of Lucy's new room has to be the stripes! I am also loving the color palette. Everything just works so well with each other.

corvustristis said...

I love the stripe motif, and how it's repeated in other colors throughout the room.

Kellie said...

I love love love her room! You've given me all sorts of fun ideas for improving my little 4 year olds room! Thanks for the inspiration!

rachel said...

I love the stripes the best!

Melissa said...

What a fun room! I love the stripes and just how colorful the whole room is! We are working on the inside (and outside) of our house, and this room might help me think outside the box!

Kelly said...

I absolutely LOVE it! You have such great vision! The gift card to lowes would completely help our way to a porch! Painted a fun color to match our navy (Victorian) house with white trim...ooh the possibilities!

This room is adorable. I love that it's not ultra girly, but modern and stylish. Well done!

Jenn said...

I think my favorite part is the outdoor market, and the little window above the table - what a fun idea! I'm now trying to figure out if we have enough space for one!

keight dukes said...

oh baby! i am drooling. i was a little skeptical when i saw the swatches too, but oh man, they came together perfectly

missamae said...

The room turned out great! I wish my room was that cool when I was little.
missamae@gmail.com

Brittany said...

I can't believe you did all this! My little girl will be one next month and we just moved into our first home in December and I'm ready to start working on her new play room. This gift card would do wonders! It's so great that you can offer this! The room is AMAZING!

Alys said...

It turned out so fun using so many colors. I don;t think I would have ever thought to paint each wall different, and one with striped. It looks great!

The Shumate Family said...

I love the colors and great ideas! I will definitely have to "spruce up" my daughters kitchen and adding the market, such a cute idea! I love that you put a mirror up for her at her height. What a lucky girl.

Belle + Bee said...

Will you please come decorate my entire house??? AMAZING!

Katie B. said...

I love Lucy's room! It's girly without being an explosion of pink/purple/princess. Love it.

Lunet said...

I LOVE the little faux window above the cute table and chair area! The whole room is wonderful :)

daniii♥ said...

I absolutely love it, it's beautiful!

nlupone said...

This is Great!!! Love , love the entire room, can't choose one thing.

Her room turned out so great! Love that pop of red. All the colors look beautiful together, bright and fun but not too much. Love the little awning and the whole kitchen play wall. Such a great idea!

I love the new room! My daughter's room has a stripped wall too,( http://littlewhiteschoolhouse.blogspot.com/2008/05/new-camera.html ) unfortunately she has decided she no longer likes pink and wants me to paint over my masterpiece :(
I love you color choices, and that it's not too girly, but still super cute- I also love the window over the cafe table.

Dana, this is super cool!

I am inspired to get all of the bedrooms in our new house painted as beautiful and cheerful as Lucy's! It turned out fantastic!

AMAZING!!! So bright and cheerful! We have converted our carport into a playroom and have yet to decorate it. Seeing this room with such wonderful paint colors motivates me to get started decorating! Thanks for the post :)

Lucky girl! I love the whole place, and it's fun and whimsy in a way that will also fit her years down the road! I like how you accented with that blue thrift store pillow; perfect!

Jenny said...

It looks great. Love the stripes and the awning is so cute

devinkirsten said...

You really did such a great job in her room. I love how you made all those colors come together. We're expecting a boy and that gift card would sure come in handy in repainting an all pink nursery! :)

katie lynn said...

Love the creativity! I'm getting ready to start designing my (soon to be born) daughters room and this encourages me to push it a little! Love it!

That is just amazing! I especially love the little "window" above her table. So cute! I would love to do something as fun for my daughters' room.

What a huge transformation, and what fun for a little girl. She is sure to build lasting memories and feel she's living an enchanted life in her own little space. Love all your color and design choices.

I love it, but what really matters is what does Lucy think? I am sure she loves it too!

I would never have thought of putting soo many different colors of paint on the walls in one room, but i absolutely love it!!! Great job! I love all the accents around the room tying in all the colors!!

Christina said...

This is so much fun. I love the kitchen and outdoor market. The colors were perfect. You can come redecorate my house any day!!

I think you picked some fun colors to go together. They look great. I love the low hanging mirror and shelf. We could have some fun too painting our son's room with a gift card to Lowe's. Thanks.

Jessica said...

I really like the paint - unexpected and yet they work so well. I'm wondering where you got the bench with the baskets under the window.

Jenny said...

I love the color combo for a little girls room. Unexpected, but adorable! I am stealing your artwork idea!

Jen said...

Her room looks amazing!! Great choices!

I LOVE this makeover...if I was a little girl I would want to live there too! I especially love that you have yellow and grey in the room as I think that color combo is especially pretty.
