Repaint The most obvious answer to brighten up a dark room is to repaint in a brighter colour. The best idea is to paint it white if it’s especially dark, since painting all the walls in a strong colour might be a little too much. White bounces and redirects the light around the room, often making it feel larger and more spacious. It’s definitely the first step to take if your walls are painted in a dark colour. If you’re unable to paint the walls then the other suggestions should provide alternatives to help in brightening up your room. Light […]

And Then He Painted his Bike

During the school year I have a few mornings with just my youngest son because preschool is only four days a week for a couple of hours. Each morning after dropping off my older two kids I ask K-man what he would like to do this morning with me. This particular morning was like every other morning when he gets it in his head that we are going to paint, using his sisters acrylic paint. This is something that is messy when you use it as an adult, never mind when a four year old gets a hold of it. […]

Fun Time with Preschooler

It’s usually pretty easy to entertain my hyper four year old son during the mornings before preschool … Being that I am and have always been a crafty sort of person, I have a huge supply of various paints, craft supplies and newspaper for times like today when the four year old requested that I paint with him. I recycle my cardboard, paper and plastics. This comes in handy on days when the kids want to do any form of crafting. Seen in picture above, we were painting a cardboard box that was from our recycle bin and using the […]

How do you make your house feel more like a home?

By definition, a house is a building which is used for human habitation.  Transforming a house into a home is something that requires time and patience but it does not require the expensive services of an interior designer.  Instead, successfully reflecting the collective personality of the inhabitants – positive attitude, lifestyle preferences, or a sense of fun, perhaps – can turn a relatively ordinary place of residence into a warm and welcoming home environment. Color me comfy   Whether living solo or in a family group, the colors in a home, coupled with the lighting, serve to create the underlying […]

The Bathroom Project

This weekend my bathroom was painted and it looks so sweet, a light yellow that isn’t flat paint but not a high glossy paint to kill your eyes either. There will need to be a second coat of paint applied next weekend but for now I am extremely happy with the way the yellow matches my bathroom curtain and the ugly blue sink and shower. I was thinking that once the painting job is done I would love to move onto the kitchen area. I am bad I know, but there are some awesome stainless steel sinks I would just […]

Piggy Paint Review and Discount

I had a chance to receive a sample of Piggy Paint along with Piggy Paint remover. I must say I wish I had this product back when my daughter was a baby, as I had always wanted to paint her nails but worried about her eating the nail polish and then worried about how I was going to clean the nail polish off of her, all those nail polish removers are not exactly something you want to use on your baby girl.
