A Little Paint Goes A Long Way


It still amazes me every time I do a project what a coat of paint does to a room, piece of furniture, a floor, or just about anything! Wether it’s a gallon of paint, a can of spray paint, or a small bottle of acrylic paint, its true that color changes everything.  If you are afraid to try a new color, start with accent pieces to introduce the color into a room, or add an accent wall before committing to the color in its entirety.  Whatever you decide, you can always repaint…..be brave!

I had leftover Devine Color paint @Target from my basement redo, and I was trying to think where I could use it.  I decided to spruce up the kids bathroom, considering they are all teenagers, and I needed to get rid of the bright turquoise paint on the beadboard and I hated the builders grade sink base, so I got to work.  I wiped down all surfaces, gently sanded, DID NOT PRIME, because Devine Color is a primer and paint in one! I love that! Anyway, I applied a light coat of paint and a second coat after and the project was done.  It’s a much brighter and more “sophisticated” space for the teenagers in the house.






See what a little paint can do? Take risks!

Hi my name is Meg. I have 5 teenage children from my blended marriage. Three are my own and my two stepsons: 17, 16, 15, 14, and 13. In a couple months it turns into 17, 16, 16, 14, 14 so having a home that accommodates these kids, our 3 dogs and 2 cats (quite the menagerie) is very important to me to have a home that consists of calm chaos, crazy chaos, and comfort on a budget. Take a look to see some of my ideas, tips, and design hacks that look great, save money, and make you love your home. As Nate Berkus says, "Your home should tell the story of who you are and be a collection of what you love." I have always loved designing and redesigning things that catch my eye. I hope some of these designs catch yours. xo-meg
