We're Doing A Makeover...How About You? #GliddenGallons


We are so excited to have the amazing opportunity to remodel Andrew's bedroom in the Walmart/Glidden DIY room makeover challenge. Andrew is almost 10 years old and still has all his nursery decorations on his walls. He has been begging me to paint his room and transition it to a big boy room for months. Now is the time! I wiped away my tears and got ready to paint over all my favorite Disney paintings.


Here all some captions of the beautiful murals I painted with my Mom in his room when he was just a little baby. His room had an ocean theme with characters from all our favorite movies. It's hard to say good-bye to all these beautiful murals.



One of the biggest challenges we face is our book collection. All my children love to read and often spend most of their time reading. As the children are getting older so has their book collection. We have book shelves in every single room and Andrew's closet is filled with books instead of clothes.




The other challenge we face in the room makeover is that Andrew still shares a room with his four year old brother. We need to create a room for an older and younger boy so that they can enjoy living together.




While you follow us in our DIY room makeover you can also win a makeover. We are giving away to one of our readers a $250 Walmart gift card to makeover a room in your house!

    This is our current living room. As you can see it is white, bland, and sparse. The other wall consists of more white and nothingness. Hand me down furniture is what we can afford right now. My kingdom for a pretty colored throw pillow and some paint or artwork! Or maybe even a lamp!

  66. My bathroom is hideous! It is in desperate need of a makeover! I’d love to turn it into a friendly kids bath for my kids!

  67. Here is a link to my video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_t8cSKKb38s
    It's my very dreary family room/basement. We hang out down here a lot and it's feeling sort of depressing. Nothing has been done to it since it was built 43 years again. Time for a whole redo, but until then, new paint job would do wonders.

    This is a wall in our kitchen that we want to paint with a magnetic base on the bottom (for Raileigh-age almost 3- to play with) and a chalkboard top (for my wife and Me to write/play on)….Right now its kinda sponge painted and looks weird.

  81. As you can see from my facebook link, I’m in the middle of a bathroom remodel. I’m WAY over budget and this would help me get those things like new matching hardware, shower curtain, towel and accessories that we just can’t afford after all this work is done……would be so great to win. Mostly, though I’m so grateful to be getting rid of that green tub…..last month, the entire bathroom was that color before it was gutted!!! YUCK
