Our three youngest daughters share a bonus room upstairs. It’s a large space, but unfortunately they’ve messed it up by trying to hang things themselves and touch up their own paint (yes, you read that correctly).

Kids’ bedroom walls just need repainted periodically: not only do they get dirty, the kids usually want a color change every few years. Now is the perfect time for us for the Glidden Gallons Paint Challenge.

Check out the before video:

I don’t look nearly so fresh here, in the middle of the wall prep process:

I’m happy to finally tackle this project. Isn’t the color gorgeous? It’s called Buttered Sweet Corn. Yum!


I’m contemplating painting the ceiling. Have you ever tried it? I have lots of questions: Should I use the same shade or slightly lighter? Would I need an eggshell finish rather than the semi-gloss that’s on the walls? Would my neck hurt so bad I’d need a chiropractor standing by?

If you can answer any of these questions, please leave it in the comments.

Stay tuned for the finished room makeover. I’m in the middle of it and hope to have it posted by this weekend.

What’s the last DIY you tackled?
