DIY Project: Paint it blue, call it new!

So, finally!!!  We’ve officially started the DIY (or have someone else do it, if you’re a cheater like me) projects at home.  It took awhile to decide on a color for the guest room, but I ran over to Home Depot and had the guy mix up something extra special for me.  Looks like it’s time to decorate the wall with some art, or maybe even some vinyl decals.  Stay tuned for updates!

Here it is…

Voila!

Voila!

  1. Looks great. Treat yourself to some new wall and switch plates while you are at it. They also can be gotten at home depot and can be installed by a DIY person!

    If you have a little experience you can change out the existing light fixture also for something a little more to your liking. If you are uncomfortable with that contact a local electrician to do that for you.

      Hi Chris,

      Thank you for the tips. I’m actually thinking about getting some recessed lighting put in, but just taking everything one step at a time. I’m pretty new to this DIY home improvement stuff, but it’s really fun. I saw some really cool LED switch plates, but maybe I can save that for later.

      Hope to have more fun stuff home improvement updates. Thanks for stopping by!
