Craft room refresh

Craft Room Refresh. Love the pretty hue!

We bought our house with it being “move in ready” EXCEPT for one thing: the paint color. Every single wall is tan. Now, I don’t mind tan or colors within that family but for my craft room, I wanted COLOR! Kelli’s craft room is the prettiest hue of blue and I knew it would pair well with my own decor so I decided to break up with tan and go for it!

Here’s a few shots of my current space before:

So the color isn’t horrible or anything but it makes my mint hutch muted and blends with the already neutral flooring.

I went to Glidden.com and was introduced to Glidden Complete. After choosing my color then ordering and picking up at my local Walmart, it was love at first sight, lol! It had me at Stain Blocking, Paint + Primer in One. This momma is busy and I don’t have time for a lot of prep so I was sold on this feature alone. Plus, my walls were smudged and had a few stains from little creative fingers coloring and painting in here and it covered right up. Mom win!

Glidden Complete paint offers premium hiding power at an exceptional value. Some other fave features are that it is highly scrubbable (remember this mom has 2 messy boys that LOVE art so this is a must!), a lifetime warranty and is 100% acrylics. Come to think of it, I was able to paint after my kids were asleep and I didn’t even have to crack a window… it is low VOC so that was pretty convenient!

And so is painters tape, my only tool used with the paint besides a 12″ roller + a few paintbrushes.

Okay I have to admit that I bartered this job out… I traded doing the dinner dishes + bedtime routine for my husband painting. Haha! Anyway, you can see the process here; the bottom has one coat and the top it getting its second. Two coats and you’re done! Bam.

Pretty Craft Room Makeover! Love this color!

It dried within a few hours and can I just say that I love this color in the light? It’s such a pretty hue!

Sold exclusively at Walmart, you can browse the samples and order your own paint in between other shopping. It is  tintable to any color on the Glidden color palette, take a peek! I chose was Lagoon Green with a semi-gloss sheen.

It is so pretty!

It is airy and playful but still allows the space to have a grown up feel paired with my more mature pieces or accessories. I love that it plays off of my kids artwork, a must have area for this room.

That once wasted space above the windows in this room are now practical and functional for storing extra craft and office supplies. And I framed some of my kids artwork to keep the playful vibe!

Oh and in case you missed this on Instagram yesterday, here is one of the cute accessories for the new above the window shelving. My kitty mug (dropped by my husband, NOT the kids, by the way) is now the perfect faux succulent holder. It is pretty cute and I am kind of glad it broke so it’s not hidden in the kitchen cabinets anymore, haha!

Upcycled broken cat mug turned succulent container. Love this quick DIY succulent pot!

  8. We moved into our house about 7 months ago. It, too, was B E I G E. We will be painting every single room, starting with the library (aka dining room, but we don’t need to be that formal!). It will be a deep aqua. We need to do other things to prepare the space, but painting will be necessary at some phase. After the library, where we go next is not clear! It all needs to be done eventually. Thank you for the opportunity to win.


  10. I would love to paint both my laundry room a fun, happy color as well as our big basement room which serves as a playroom and my preschool classroom:)

  11. I really need to paint my kitchen, dining living area. It is one open area so I usually paint it all the same color.

  15. Like you, I SOOOO need to add a llttle color into my life. Every room on our house is in some kind a state of remodel. Can’t decide which room to finish because they are all a disaster. We have a sunroom/ craft room// homeschool room that really needs a new chance on life. I feel that room calling for our 9 year old daughter to love it again and calling to her to spend time in there doing her school work, crafting away or dancing her heart out, but it’s kinda blah so no one wants to be in it……..will be working to bring it back to life very soon! Thanks you you inspiration!!!!

  24. I would paint my boys bathroom. It is needing to be refreshed again now that they are growing up.

  25. My office/craft space is a dark Hershey brown. I’m really over that dark look and would love to update it to a happier, more creative space. I’m thinking Glidden Brittany Inn blue would be a fresh change!

  26. I need to paint EVERY room in the house, we just moved in. But my daughters room is first on the list. And she would LOVE this color.

  31. I love it! Seriously so beautiful! I would love to win this giveaway. We are currently purchasing a new home. Basically I’d love to paint every room, but I would start with my baby girl’s room!

  32. Painting has to be one of my favorite ways to refresh a space and this paint sounds perfect! Our lower level has been feeling forgotten and I think it might be time to give it a little attention and ready to use when the family all gathers for the next time.

  33. I have two rooms that really need repainted. They too, were move in ready and the off white it just not attractive. I need color!!

  34. Do I have to only pick one room? 😉 I’d love to paint my bedroom. I’m trying to make it more of a retreat than a storeroom!! The kitchen could use a refresh as well. Maybe because they’re the same color? Weird, right! I was going through a phase!

    1. Heck no! I barely used 1/2 gallon for my 3 walls so this prize will cover a ton of your spaces 🙂 I need to give my bedroom a facelift, too! And haha, when you like a color you stick with it 😉

  35. I’ve been wanting to paint our whole house! I’d like to start in my bedroom & bathroom. The hardest part would be deciding on which color!

  39. Awesome job!!! I am currently in need of a major overhaul in my guest room/office/craft room. Nothing matches, and the different areas need more definite separation while still appearing cohesive. I plan on painting my existing furniture, as well as the walls. This would be such a blessing! 🙂

  40. Love the color your chose! I would love to win 5 gallons so that I can push through several projects that are on the list. Our big one is painting the living room and kitchen- we have a giant vaulted wall that will be a challenge to get to as part of it is above our stairwell to the basement. The basement is a whole other story ???? The walls are a reddish/maroon and it gives me anxiety to go down there and do laundry and edit photos. I HATE the red. I would love to paint over it but the husband doesn’t want to spend money on that ???? This would definitely help me win my argument if we didn’t have to spend the money on the paint!!

  41. Our downstairs bedroom that had a leak in the wall 1 week after we moved in ????????????????

  42. LOVE the color you chose! And the polka dot wallpaper is awesome! I would Love and NEED all 5 gallons of the Glidden complete, lol. I am planning on painting not only my kitchen cabinets but also the walls in the kitchen, dining area, living room and master bath! And to have the all in one complete would be amazing for me since I have fibromyalgia and carpal tunnel (among several other things) and the fewer coats I have to paint the better! My hand goes numb very quickly, which make my projects very slow. I’ve entered several contests before for things I’d like to have, but this one I truly need!
    Thanks so much for the opportunity!
