Beach Bedroom Makeover (and a Giveaway)

Beach Bedroom Makeover (and a Giveaway)

Remember this room?

It all started with the perfect white paint.

Seriously.

If you have ever tried to find a white paint before….you understand the impact of that statement.

Truth.

Can we all agree and pinky promise and nod in understanding and tell future generations…..

….that all white paint is not or ever has been….the same.

beach-decorating-ideas_thumb.jpg

When we bought our first house…..the bathroom had beautiful blue tile.  And let’s be clear…..I use the word beautiful in retrospect.  I look back now on that tile in the way that someone does who no longer lives at the house with the challenge of brilliant blue tile.

But at the time?

Yikes.

It was BLUE.

Capital letter blue.

before-and-after-cape-cod-bedroom.jpg

And that brilliant blue tile needed to be surrounded by the calm serenity of white paint.

I went to a home improvement store and asked for some white paint and came home and painted the bathroom.

Except.

Except it wasn’t really white.  Somehow the blue managed to edge its way in and take over and make the white look pink.

Classic.

And not the look anyone should strive for.

I didn’t understand?

Wasn’t white paint…..always just white?

cape-cod-bedroom-makeover_thumb.jpg

And the answer (just in case you needed it for party conversation) is…..

……no.

All white paints are not the same.

And that’s why the white for this room was so important.

It needed a warm white with the tiniest bit of yellow to warm up the space and make it feel welcoming.

If the white was too white….the room would feel sterile.

If the white was too gray…..the room would feel dingy.

So beach bedroom…..meet SW 6385 Dover White.

Sherwin-Williams Store

SW 6385 Dover White and a few of it’s friends can be found at your local Sherwin-Williams store.

And the best part?  If you have paint questions like me….you can always ask.

Because they know the answers.

Like helping me find the perfect white paint for my beach bedroom makeover and knowing the best color for a room and how to choose the paint that works for your space.

So next time you have a paint question….your local Sherwin-Williams store has the answers.

Even for a room…..

….full of capital blue tile. 🙂

  1. My Living-room is in desperate need of a make-over!!
    Love your pictures!!

    • Brittany Walker :

      Our bathroom needs a desperate makeover! I’ve learned that one can of paint can make a HUGE difference in the look and feel of a room. Whether or not I win the giftcard, my husband and I plan on redecorating this room in the fall! 🙂

    • My master bathroom is a little, how to put this politely, needy….

    • I’m turning over a 400sq. ft former garage into my senior cottage. We are just installing sheetrock –All it’s needs is a pretty white to make my new home sparkle.

    • Our bedroom needs painted so bad! It has this weird grey wood grain paneling with brown doors and trim in the corners in the room but no baseboards! And a drop ceiling to boot!

    • My family room!! Looking for paint now!

  2. We are in the midst of a move and our new ( to us) kitchen needs a paint job over the mint green walls.

  3. Wow-thanks for this giveaway! Our guest bedroom is in desperate need of a makeover…

  4. My kids’ share a bathroom and it REALLY needs a makeover.

  5. That would be our bedroom. 🙂

  6. I would get rid of the maroon and green plaid wallpaper in my kids’ bathroom, for starters!

  7. Family bathroom needs a facelift

  8. My kitchen is crying for new paint and a makeover.

  9. We are starting a bathroom remodel. ……it is currently retro pink! 🙂

  10. it would be my sunroom…..

  11. I would love to redo our dark, boring rec room in the basement. It gets lots of use but needs a facelift.

  12. My kitchen! It is currently painted a flat yellow! Huge mistake with 5 kids and animals! I have tons of natural light so it seemed much more white but there are times of the day when it changes to a very offensive yellow….usually when we are sitting down to eat in the attached open eating area. Yuck!

  13. There’s a three wall underwater mural in my son’s room. My son who says he’s now afraid of fish. Three walls. Sigh.

  14. My living room definitely needs a new look!

  15. My sunporch is currently rough cedar panels stained a redwood color and it is in so need of paint.

  16. Denise Fogleman :

    My master bedroom is in severe need of a makeover! It seems to be the dumping ground for everything 🙁

  17. My master bedroom is next on my list for a makeover. Love the beach bedroom.

  18. You always start my day off on a happy note (other than my GM kiss from hubby) with your great stories. I have learned not to sip coffee while reading as I learned my lesson one time by spewing coffee all over my key board as I laughed out loud….Love the beach house room makeover….Can I say that that my media/family room needs a Sherwin Williams makeover? YES!..it is painted SW Macadamia and has been that way for over 9 years…time for a change ya think?….

  19. My kids bathroom and hallway needs some paint! How awesome would it be to win! Thank you for the opportunity!

  20. My living room! We had it painted when we moved in and it was supposed to be this warm green, only it wasn’t. It turned out to be kind of mint green and really needs to be changed!

  21. My hall bath really needs a makeover! Hasn’t been refreshed since the 90’s!!

  22. Definitely I would use this great paint for our guest bathroom…right now it’s a too white white!

  23. I am getting ready to paint the exterior of my home (the same SW colors as before because I love them so much). By the way, the trim color is SW Dover White and I have loved it as the trim for my home. The gift card would sure help toward all those gallons of paint!

  24. Janelle hendrickson :

    Our backporch would look great with some fresh paint. Love SW. Always a great experience when i go.

  25. Jeannie Scott :

    My bedroom is in the process of a major major makeover!!!! I am pulling up the old ugly carpet and replacing with hardwood flooring and will want to paint with one of the beautiful Sherwin Williams paint colors!!!!

  26. We have one room left in our house that hasn’t been touched. It’s a dingy yellowy ivory with hideous dusty rose carpet that has seen better days. That room needs a sledgehammer and some paint as does the bathroom right next to it. But that bathroom is covered in white plastic tile sheeting. Floor to ceiling. It’s awful. So actually, I have two rooms that need a sledgehammer but I’d settle for some paint for the last bedroom!

  27. I would have to say my attic work space which has been stuck in “builder’s white” for years now.

    At first I was going to paint it tan or taupe (to match most of the rest of the house) but now I’m going to paint it a bolder, more vibrant color (to better reflect and inspire my creativity). I still can’t quite settle on the color though.

    Your beach bedroom makeover is lovely. Enjoy your day.

  28. My kitchen needs some love!

  29. Good morning! One small house, one husband, one grandchild, one dog…one room that houses the living and dinning room…one gift card, one happy woman!!! Thank you for the possibility…

  30. I’m so over the “cream” in our bedroom. It just looks dingy. So bedroom is my room to repaint.

  31. I think every room in our house could use some paint. 🙂 We just bought a new home and the “builder beige” in every room needs to be changed. Thank you so much for the opportunity.

  32. My kitchen is the last room of our house to receive some help so I would use it there.

  33. The blue bedroom in my guest house. Redecorating for Texas hill country farmhouse decor. Can’t wait to choose wall color.

  34. Debra Schramm :

    Living Room

  35. Moved into a new house. Used the wrong color of “tan” throughout. It’s too dark. Should have went to Sherwin Williams for color advice.

  36. Linda Schombert :

    OH, our 20X22 ft family room PLEASE! Currently covered by 30 year old wallpaper, which was very “au courant” back then, but now….sad!

  37. You are right about white paint. We went through different ceiling paint because every time we painted it looked dingy or too cold. Right now our family room is in dire need of paint — I need to get a picture of it but I’m afraid everyone would shudder in horror– it’s dark and the two colors look like well I can’t describe it. I’ll take pictures but it is not me — truly. My hubby picked out the colors and I can’t believe I actually abetted him in putting it up on the walls. It is truly criminal. 🙁 BTW I just want you to know since I pinned your wooden wall at the beach house I’ve had so many pins pinning back to you. It is a very popular Pinterest picture.

  38. I am working on a total living room makeover with my husband. We even intend to paint the floor! I love Sherwin Williams Harmony line because of the low VOC since I’m a bad asthmatic. It Rocks!

  39. LOL – I’m currently updating my kitchen and then (when I have two weeks to recover from the dust, no counters, no water, did I mention dust?) – my master bath reno starts. The SW gift certificate would sure come in handy! And I am no stranger to Dover White – that is the trim color throughout my house ;0 A wonderful warm white!

  40. barbra boland :

    my bedroom is a not so beautiful green…. and oh i would go back to a beautiful white or blue/grey or so many other colors, if we only had the moola to do so. also sherwin williams is my fav paint!!

  41. Kimberly Rable :

    My laundry room needs HELP!?!?! I thought I had the right color and, that was 4 colors ago. One corner of the room has been painted 4 times. Unfortunately, it’s the part of the room that you see right when you walk through the door! Ugh! KariAnne…can I get you to come with the gift card?

  42. My mudroom is crying for attention! Back door guest are best and I would love to give it a face lift!

  43. Dark interior hall with NO natural light currently several flat shades of white (previous occupants “touch ups”). Needs something bright and welcoming.

  44. Thank you for this opportunity. My blah-yellow master bedroom, located on the southeast corner of the house, could use a beachy theme to cheer it back to life! Love your inspiring rooms and posts.

  45. My guest room is in desperate need of a makeover. It’s rather long and narrow and is also room for a huge desk and file cabinet plus the bed. It’s so boring, no art on the walls, etc.

  46. My kitchen needs a pick-me-up paint job!! I love Dover White by SW!

  47. My neutral biege kitchen walls, which everyone thinks are some weird shade of green in certain light, need to be brightened up. I am also looking for the perfect white!

  48. My master bedroom! I have been wanting to bring in a little more simplicity in our home. I think 7 years ago when we moved in I must have thought that we were grown up or something. I have a flocked damask upholstered headboard (that I made, ahem) and light aqua walls. I don’t like aqua. I have nightmares about that color. What on on this earth made me paint our walls that color? Ugh. So, please Sherwin Williams, shine your face down upon that horrid aqua bedroom in Florida. I’d love a room with white walls so that I can bring in linen instead of damask and go back to not being a 98 year old lady. Much love.

  49. Sharon Mosenkis :

    My guest room is in need of a redo!!!

  50. My husband’s stark builder’s beige-y white bathroom which he thinks is “just fine”. My gag reflex is on high alert whenever I pass by it. Shudder.

  51. I have three bedrooms and a bathroom on the second floor that are being re-sheetrocked. This would help tremendously. Thank you.

  52. my guest bathroom! Thanks for a great giveaway.

  53. My daughters room. It was a beautiful sunny yellow on one wall in our old house. We have yet to do any real decorating at our new home and I always feel sad that she no longer has that lovely yellow wall.

  54. My be a tough choice – either my guest bathroom which I redid ten years ago needs new life or my dining room that needs to better match the rest of the downstairs. Currently, it is a University of Texas orange and since we aren’t Longhorns it is time for a change.

  55. Oh our hall bathroom- what was i thinking! Really? Green?

  56. We welcomed in the 90’s by painting the family room…and it’s ready for an update!!

  57. I let my husband choose the paint for our bedroom. Unfortunately, he went with tennis ball green. He played tennis in college. What can I say? It is awful! I would use that gift card to buy primer and paint. I love white paint!!

  58. I just love this room – makes me want to go find a cottage on a lake! Surprises the heck out of me because I’ve not ever been a fan of white walls or for that matter, blue. But this? This room I love so danged much that it makes me want to buy white paint and re-do a bedroom!

    Awesome giveaway, BTW – thanks so much for the opportunity! My fingers are crossed!

  59. My master bedroom hasn’t been painted in years and needs a lot of help.

  60. My boys’ bathroom is in desperate need of a makeover. The walls are yellow and there is a bright fish shower curtain. My kids are 8 and 10 now and we “decorated” even before the younger one was born. At the time, I wanted something that would work both girls and boys…hence the yellow walls. I attempted (and failed) to make the room look Caribbean inspired but it ended up being more nightmare-inspired and has stayed that way ever since! So, yes – paint for the boys bathroom would be wonderful! Thanks the giveaway chance!
    -Shelley

  61. My Master bedroom is a mess!! I would love to paint and start over.

  62. I am working on giving my craft room a face lift and a fresh coat of paint is definitely on the list!

  63. It is definitely the kitchen!!! We have been planning the attack for about a month now so the SW bucks would come in mighty handy 🙂

  64. Without a doubt, our master bedroom! We’ve done “something” to every room in our house but our master bedroom has always seemed to be the place where things were stashed and the decorating never got done. We’ve been in our home for 10 years and have slowly tried to make improvements but, sadly, our bedroom has always been passed over. Winning a gift card from Sherwin Williams would be a dream come true! Thank you so much Karianne for sponsoring this giveaway! Love, love, love your blog!

  65. My master bathroom desperately needs a makeover. The wavy design of the wallpaper has got to go! Thanks as always for your inspiration!

  66. I’d love to make over my husband’s basement man cave. It is currently boring white. It is dying for color and warmth. All of the trim is unpainted wood. I’d love to do a dark trim and bright walls!

  67. Can I call “all rooms” a room? 🙂 No? Then it would have to be the dining room it drives me crazy but until I find that elusive perfect paint color it stays blah.

  68. Guest bedroom…no doubt. Unless you consider the loft. Or my office. Or the kitchen. Well…the sun room could stand to be livened up as well. Decisions. Decisions……

    It was great sitting in on your session at Becoming. You are as much fun in person as I would have imagined! Plus you offered some cool tips!

    Have a great week!

  69. Our kitchen! I’m getting ready to tear into this project ASAP!

  70. My laundry room needs a facelift. Its dark blue and I want to make it light and bright so my least favorite chore will at least be in a pretty room!

  71. Hmmmm, I think the kitchen needs a little freshening up! Thanks for the chance to win.

  72. I need to paint the master bedroom. NEED. to redo. Really. Please!
    Love your blog! I have a File Folder with your name on it to save issues.

  73. DEBRA THOMPSON :

    I have a spare bedroom/ craft room/ office that needs to be completely done. Paint, furniture the whole works.

  74. Oh the kitchen. And it would be great in Dover White! I know as I have used Dover White for trim throughout our house!

  75. I would love to surprise my son who is serving in the Army with a makeover in his bedroom! It’s been over 10 years since it was last painted with SW paint and needs to be refreshed! I’ve been thinking about your post on the SW grays and the one that you suggested would look good with navy and white. To win would be so awesome!

  76. I’m planning a makeover of my laundry/mudroom! Would love to win a gift card to SW!!!

  77. All the rooms in our house have Sherwin Williams paint…………..EXCEPT for our family room. I would love to make it a perfect home by winning some Sherwin Williams paint and painting out family room 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win!

  78. This summer, I have been working so very hard to purge and organize, before the school year begins. In fact, I am going to school today to clean and organize…wait, what? My bedroom is slowly getting cleaned out and I am looking forward to redoing it and making it a peaceful retreat, thinking something in a very light, Swedish blue for the walls.
    If I won, it would be a most excellent reward for a very boring (but productive) summer. Thanks, I’ve got my fingers crossed!

  79. My kitchen needs to be updated, big time!

  80. My home office is in desperate need of a make-over. The gray faux stone wall that I painted 15 years ago is depressing now that I spend so much time in the room due to telecommuting.

  81. I am getting hardwood floors for my living room, so that is the room that is going to be totally redone. I am also looking for that perfect white too.

  82. Vicki Obenhaus :

    I would definitely use that paint to turn the downstairs room that is now just a big storage room into a proper family room/guest room. That paint would help a lot! Thanks for the giveaway!

  83. Lisa Langston :

    My master bath is a monster! It needs a make over so badly.

  84. Lisa O'Shaughnessy :

    Dear KariAnne,
    Last October, my husband and I became guardians of our wonderful seven yr. old grandson named Cameron. Sadly, his parents are not capable at this time. (but, that’s another story) This makeover would make him feel so much more “At Home”. Currently, he has his own room but it was my “catch all” room. ( Until now, we were empty nesters 🙂 The room is white with blue carpet. In essense nothing screams seven yr old boy’s room except the adorable artwork he has created. And the photos of him and his Daddy taped to the wall and one photo of him and his Mommy. I would love the opportunity to make this room his very own design. Thank You and Sherwin Williams for the opportunity. 🙂

    Lisa O.

  85. Yikes…I thought I was the only one who painted (and repainted!) a wall white that turned out looking “pinkish”! My youngest child just “left the nest” (sigh…the good/bad problem); I would paint his bedroom and yes, make it my sewing room.

  86. My entire upstairs is a lovely shade of drywall, but the room I am choosing first is my 2-year old’s bedroom. White will provide a fresh palette for whatever his passion might be week-to-week.

  87. My bedroom definitely needs a lift.

  88. My master bathroom needs a makeover desperately! But I also need to perk up my office and hallway!! Would be lovely to win! Thanks!

  89. My craft room is in desperate need of a makeover. I can’t decide on what color I should paint it to make it seem bright and cheerful!!! Thanks so much for sharing your ideas 🙂

  90. My living room & dining room need makeovers. Help!!

  91. I would love to reprint my living room. It is a yellow but a muddy yellow. Not what I was going for! I haven’t tried SW paint & would love to give it a try. The SW store is very near my house so it would be great to get to know the people working there. Thanks for the opportunity!

  92. Jennifer Pullen :

    Hello! My dining room (which also works as my office, foyer, and toy train depot!) desperately needs a fresh coat of paint. It’s the first room you see and it’s looking rather dull these days! Thank you.

  93. Cheryl Moeller :

    I love Sherwin Williams Cashmere paint, I would paint my master bedroom!

  94. Our home has an open floor plan so it would be hard to just choose one room to redo. We still have the original painter’s color so I would redo the living room, kitchen, dining room area. Although my daughters (13 and 10) have also requested to repaint their rooms. We would have to have a paint fest!

  95. My 13 yo daughter Julia is dying to make over her bedroom into a ‘teen’ room. She has it all picked out…just need the funds to get it done!

  96. New home with “builder’s beige” EVERYWHERE! Take your pick. Maybe I’ll start in the master bedroom.

  97. Gwyneth Miller :

    I need to re-do my daughter’s bedroom. There’s a huge crack in the plaster on one wall that’s to be taken care of…then freshen it up with Sherwin Williams paint.

  98. Pick a room any room!!!! We just moved in at the end of April and there was no time to paint before moving in so this “farmhouse chic” girl is living in a BORING beat up white walled modernish mishmash. 🙁

  99. my husbands mancave. H e died in Feb and I would like to turn it into my art room.

  100. Hands down, our family room. It is boring and has been the same for so long it pains me. There are many things I want to do to this room, but some of them are structural, and I don’t have the resources for that right now. Keeping my fingers crossed somewhere down the road I can make the other changes, but right now, the small ones like painting will be my bit of sunshine! Thanks for the chance

  101. Our kitchen!

  102. Kim Derringer :

    Love the Beach Bedroom!!
    Would love to win this makeover to paint my kitchen island SW Show Stopper and my cabinets in SW Pro Classic Extra White!!!
    Thanks and Blessings…..

  103. Definitely the bedroom

  104. Hi KariAnne! LOVE this happy bedroom! You sure can decorate… and paint!!! My very next project is my guest suite. It’s a wonderful room with angled walls and a big window and a great cozy feel! xo

  105. My Guest Room/Craft Room…Ugh Ugly! I need a place of Happy Inspiration not the drab and dull that’s going n in there now. Thanks for the chance to win and Your room is Stunning,So much Happiness there.

  106. My master bedroom is aqua with a capital Aqua 😉 and it could really use a facelift!

  107. Marcia Robinson :

    Our teenage son’s bathroom needs a serious makeover. It has a not so beautiful toilet and sink! 🙂 Love your blog!

  108. I would makeover our kitchen. I haven’t liked it since we painted it, but I didn’t have the heart to tell my husband.

  109. Megan DeMaria :

    Wow! Love, love, love Thistlewood everything! Building a new home in Sunset Beach, NC. So….getting many ideas for various rooms, interior and exterior paint, especially your coastal posts. The builder, Cruse Construction, only uses Sherwin-Williams! The room I’m focused on for this particular website giveaway, would have to be my Carolina Room. It will have large windows on three sides, so the color will have to be just right on that fourth wall! Will keep reading your posts for ideas as we start construction Nov. 1st!!

  110. Our master bathroom needs to leave the 80’s behind!

  111. I love this room! Thanks for sharing!
    I would redo my living room and kitchen first but the whole house needs it!

  112. the living room for sure

  113. agree on the whites. mix in a little georgia clay and you have a brand new color! I think I would paint my home office….white!

  114. Definitely my bathroom….right now it is just drywall, and has been for almost a year now, because I was waffeling on the color, and lately I just haven’t had the time to get to it. This gift card couldn’t come at a better time!! Love your blog!!

  115. My dining room definitely needs a makeover. When we painted it RED when we moved in 7 years ago I loved it but now I feel like I’m trapped as it really limits my decorating! In addition I didn’t pay much attention to the fact that my bright red room is right beside my John Deere green kitchen so it’s Christmas all year ’round at my house! 🙂
    P.S. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to your presentation and meeting you at the Becoming Conference! I was the crazy girl who came up to meet you after your first session. I was with my Mom’s best friend, who was just introduced to the blog world with yours!

  116. My master bedroom. We painted it red (what were we thinking?) 4 years ago and I hate it.

  117. We bought an historic home with THIRTY rooms that need to be repainted!!! The previous owners LOVED,LOVED,LOVED southwestern and actually painted the attic turret like a tee pee! That’s what we’re painting first (our three year old grandson says the scary animals on the walls make him worry about werewolves). I was at Sherwin Williams just yesterday and I was so overwhelmed by all of the great choices that the incredibly helpful and wonderful salesperson handed me a paint deck and said I could take it home and take my time deciding. I offered to buy it, and he said…”That’s okay. We trust you.” How rare is that these days? I felt like I was in Mayberry.

  118. How freaky that you are posting this about paint right now!!! I just found a color for my kitchen – Halo by Benjamin Moore!!! It will look divine!!!

  119. I remember this room and remember commenting on your beautiful bedroom makeover. I have a lovely condominium in Florida, but we have down-sized up North and need to up-size in Florida so we have room for the whole family to gather together. This means the condo needs an update, before we can put it on the market. It is a lovely deep olive green, very rich, but too dark for putting a home on the market. We will be painting ANY and EVERY room in the old place!

  120. My kitchen is in desperate need of a makeover. Those not-at-all-beautiful wood cabinets have got to go!

  121. Love me some SW paint!! My formal dinning is desperate for fresh paint!! Thanks Karianne!!

  122. I would makeover my kitchen with paint which is now wallpapered and I hate it.

  123. It is time to paint many rooms but the master bedroom is screaming to have ugly wallpaper removed and new paint!

  124. Just discovered your blog! I’m soo enjoying all of your posts. I would definitely redo my master bedroom. It is in need of some serious help. Have never been to Sherwin Williams, but would love to have them assist me!!

  125. I love your sense of humor! And your style. I would love to paint our family room, it’s currently ‘builder beige’. Thanks for the opportunity.

  126. It’s true. Not all whites are created equal. Wait–did I just make a racist statement??
    Anyway, I need to redo our master bedroom. It’s stuck in the 80’s and Definitely needs an update.
    Too much furniture–too blah, too disjointed. Needs help!

  127. I would love to repaint our gameroom. It is the worst green/brown paint color. I have hated it ever since we moved in! It needs some love and I know SW will do that. I think their paint is excellent quality.

  128. My bedroom walls are crying out to be painted with Sherwin Williams Palladian Blue. Such a beautiful color. I have had the paint chip taped to my wall for a year now and it would be fantastic to win and finally paint this room.

  129. Terrie Sigmon :

    Our master bedroom needs a makeover.

  130. Our yellow bathroom – yellow tile on the wall, yellow fixtures, white and yellow diamond pattern tile on the floor

  131. Please I need a cheery make over – my house is boring beige!

  132. Tina@encorecreations :

    The living room and dining room are in desperate need of paint!!

  133. When we moving into our current home there was this green and gold sponge painted wall and yep we painted it white (after 3 coats of primer!) But now our master bedroom could really do with a makeover.

  134. Embarrassing but true but we have never painted our master bedroom in the 20 years we have lived here. Always the last room on the list and of course still is . This room could really use a makeover!

  135. Lower Level guest room.
    Just like your white…not all beiges are created equal, my room turned out fleshy!

  136. Well, most of my rooms need a fresh coat of paint, but I would start with my daughters room. She just moved out 🙁 to attend college:), and the pepto bismo pink has to go!!

  137. We have just moved to a house we love but the master bath is in need of a makeover. Time to get rid of the dark burgandy and gold!

  138. It would definitely be our guest bedroom. The last owner had a muralist paint a lovely sky with clouds and birds, great for kids, but not appreciated by our adult guests. Yup, that’s the one, the guest bedroom.

  139. About to go to SW to pick paint for my living room! Would love to win 🙂
    Beautiful job on the beach bedroom!

  140. Sharyn Hampton :

    Love the look of your bedroom! You achieved the clean look that I had wanted for our guest bedroom, when we painted it a BM white. I have a white Rachel Ashwell comforter set and white curtains in that room. I like to change up the pillows and decor in the room to add pops of color. The guest bedroom had previously been painted a french blue. I thought I had bought a warm white (which I wanted), however, after 2 coats of the BM paint, the white walls and ceiling still have a blue tone to them! Thanks so much, though, for your inspiration. Love to visit your post each morning!

  141. I would love to lighten up my dining room! 🙂

  142. Our family room is in dire need of a make over! I would use elements of your beach bedroom to create a beach family room. I absolutely love your beach bedroom. Thank you

  143. Well….most of my rooms…but currently wanting to makeover my hallway!

  144. My living room is in desperate need of a good painting!

  145. My “room” would be the front porch.

  146. We are moving into our dream house on Monday and the first room to get made over will be our master bedroom. I have the color palette in place, just need the moola to buy everything.
    Perfectly timed giveaway!

  147. Wellllllll….most of our rooms need to be painted, but the room that needs it the most is our kitchen. It’s red! It was pretty, but now I need something light and bright. Not only do I need to paint the walls, but the cabinets need a refresh as they are the pretty 80’s oak….sturdy, but need a face lift!

  148. I want to get rid of the beige walls and change them to more of a warm white.

  149. My kitchen and utility room could use a face lift! Your blog is a breath of fresh air every day! Thanks!

  150. Just got a Florida condo so I’d start with the entry since it’s the first room guests will see. Should set a nice tone for rooms to come.

  151. Master bathroom

  152. I would help my daughter paint her living room. She would really love to repaint it but buying paint isn’t high on her list.

  153. All my kids have flown the nest! Needing to make over one of the bedrooms into a real guest room…paint would make a big difference…please enter me in the giveaway, thanks!

  154. It would certainly be my basement that still has unfinished Sheetrock
    Stripes! No wonder I don’t like to go down there and exercise ….

  155. I need paint for all the trim in my house. Love your beach makeover room.

  156. I would make over my office-it needs a little help!

  157. My daughter just moved into her first home, and as we were surveying the living room, I happened to pick at what I thought was something on the wall. It was a piece of paint, that ended up peeling off in huge sheets! Needless to say, I owe her a make-over…done correctly! (In the exact right shade of white, of course 🙂 )

  158. Since we’re renting, can’t go full out paint crazy on the walls, but I have lots of furniture that could use some SW paint love.

  159. In the process of buying a home and the kitchen needs a color that will make the cabinets pop.
    The previous owner did a complete renovation in the kitchen but the color selection on the walls does not compliment the gorgeous cabinets and I want to paint with a color that will enhance them.

  160. Our son’s bedroom! We’ve lived here 4 years and have still not painted their room. It’s a mess!

  161. We were going to start our kitchen makeover when the kids went back to school. My hubs hurt is back and is actually in surgery this very moment! So kitchen makeover maybe in the fall?

  162. Our bonus room. In dire need of painting!

  163. my front foyer hallway over wallpaper (gulp!)

  164. Hmm, which room doesn’t need help. It’s a toss between the master bedroom and the Living Room. Probably the Living Room…it is the first one guests see and I would love to wow them!

  165. We have moved in to care for the in-laws….50 years without new paint. Can I say every room needs a makeover? But especially the living area where we just removed cheap; dark paneling!

  166. Our bedroom. We’ve lived in this house 4 years and we’ve not painted or done anything with it. And that’s just not right!

  167. Well, I’m fixing to go buy some paint this very morning. Our den has been needing a makeover for 6+ years in my mind. In my families’ mind it’s, why are we painting? It looks fine. It’s not chipping. So the den is a mess and all prepped and ready for some lovely new light turquoise paint–Soft Jazz is the name. But I could definitely use this gift card for our bedroom and dining room.

  168. Our master bedroom needs a makeover. The wallpaper needs to go and we’re planning on painting the room SW Silverplate. Thanks!

  169. My bedroom, unfortunately it has been the same paint color sice moving into our home, 15 yrs ago, phew! I am so ready Sherman 🙂

  170. Oh my goodness, my living room needs a make-over badly. My husband and I have spent the past 16 months renovating our 108 year old Victorian farmhouse. We were able to get the majority of the house move in ready but ran out of money before finishing the formal living room. I’d love to be able to give the ole’ girl the updated facelift she so deserves and needs!!

  171. Kitchen, baby!

  172. The master bedroom is next on my list. Thanks for the chance to win!

  173. We are going to be painting our Master Bedroom this fall! —“Oh! By the way Honey, we’re going to be painting our Master Bedroom this fall!”

  174. My kitchen needs a makeover, badly!

  175. My kitchen for sure! Thanks. Love your website!

  176. My kitchen and master bedroom need major freshening.

  177. Elaine O'Connor :

    Thanks for the give away. Would love to redo my livingroom.

  178. My whole house 🙂 We’re currently house hunting so we will have a lot of painting to do in the near future

    demureprincess7(at)gmail(dot)com

  179. Sally Rogerson :

    I need an update in my kitchen! It’s stuck in the 80’s! Need to get rid od wallpaper and paint!

  180. Sharon Taylor :

    I have a turn of the 20th century (cir. 1903) home I am trying to bring into the 21st century while keeping its southern charm. It is the kitchen’s turn. It has wood panelled walls that need to come down & sheetrock that needs to be replaced & needs serious paint to make it bright & fresh. This is a room we spend a lot of time in. Would love the help with some really good paint. Thank you for the opportunity to enter.

  181. My living room is in major need of help! I have beige walls and beige curtains. I need a pop of color.

  182. Mary Ellen Butterworth :

    I am soooo excited about the give away. There are so many rooms I would like to change, it is hard to pick. I would love to redo my master bedroom.

  183. My master bedroom needs a makeover. The first step would be to buy paint and winning this would be of great help!

  184. My kitchen needs a makeover badly! Just painted the walls a lovely gray, now need to paint the cabinets and trim a lovely white. Everything in the house has the early 90’s golden oak.

  185. My living room needs this white badly! It’s still green from the previous owners and doesn’t do any favors to my late grandpa’s cherished cupboard that’s the statement piece in the room.

  186. My kitchen, for sure! Thanks.

  187. Oh, it would definitely be by bedroom…..somehow that lovely lavender with ultra deep brown below the chair rail, after 14 years just looks depressing and the lavender is now dingy. It was lovely in it’s day (ahem) but alas I am slowly redoing my house myself after all my older children have moved out with all of their children and pets…Finally I get to have my Scandinavian home…so much to do, but my bedroom has always come last. Every time I redo a room, someone moves home and my house seems to suffer. I now have to go through all the rooms and do something about the wonderful popcorn ceiling which is an awful shade of bleh! Way too much dust and mess to be able to remove it all but I think with some good Kilz (oil based not the water based) and a nice paint I can then at leat brighten up the rooms. Any help woud be appreciated! Love your blog! By the way I brought your blueberry and pineapple cake to a party and it was a HUGE hit! Thanks for the fantastic recipe!

  188. The exterior of my house needs it BAD! Thanks for sharing this opportunity!

  189. My halls/ staircase could use refreshing.

  190. Our house has been void of color, every room is cream, since it was purchased 4 years ago. I need color in my life! Anywhere! I would start with the master bedroom….

    Thanks for chance to win.

  191. My master bedroom would definitely benefit from a paint swap. The color right now has zero personality. The hard part would be deciding if I wanted to do a dark navy or bright white on the walls!

  192. I would love to freshen up my mud room/entry room in a way that says “Welcome to our home”.

  193. My back porch! I want to paint my doors (there are 3 of them that open to the back porch) Sherwin Williams Black Fox. I also want a pale blue for the ceiling.

  194. Hi Karianne…Thanks for the awesome giveaway! We LOVE Sherwin Williams! Actually, we are moving into a new home this fall and every room needs to be painted, ack! It will be a major job…but we want to personalize our walls the way we like them. It would be a huge blessing to win this giveaway. Thanks!

  195. Lucky me, I have 2 bathrooms upstairs that need some love. AND I love SW paints! Pick me!

  196. Stacy Simpson :

    My makeover would be my boys bathroom! Since I moved into my house 8 years ago, I’ve wanted to give it a makeover!

  197. I’m getting ready to redo my front bedroom, which will be MY bedroom…this would be a huge blessing! LOVE your Dover white…warm but not yellow. Neutral but not gray. Perfect for your amazing room. 🙂

  198. Linda Andersen :

    where the heck do I start?? My husband and I are living with/taking care of my 103 year old Mom. the house hasn’t been painted in over 25 years. a fresh coat of paint would do wonders to lift my spirits, mentally it is a very hard task and we don’t have extra money to buy paint:( I love your blog you are my favorite!! our house is very dark and dark wallpapers…it’s like living in a cave….then I look at your bright light airy house and I want that!!!! thanks for the entertainment and knowledge!!!
    love, Linda

  199. I have a bathroom in need of a makeover!!!! This giveaway would be a huge help. Thank you!!!

  200. Every room – seriously! I am in the process of moving back into my childhood home, my father’s childhood home! so it is at least 150 years old, has been empty for 12 years after Mom passed, pipes burst and flooded the empty house, so much moisture in the house before they found the burst pipe that the wall paper was literally falling off the ceiling! I think I would start in the family room where I spend most of my relaxing time, it is small and I think I could manage by myself. Thanks for the chance at the giveaway.

  201. the man cave! definitely the man cave 🙂

  202. Suzi Matteson :

    Putting a house on the market and the entire place needs a fresh coat of paint. This gift card would be a great help in getting the process started.

  203. Our large basement room desperately needs new paint. Actually, all the rooms in the basement do but this would be a great start to that!

  204. I would like to redo my Boys / Guest Bathroom in a pretty neutral color. The caca white over wallpaper is just not working! 😉 Thanks for the chance of getting through that To Do List!

  205. We plan to build a home and that means…A WHOLE HOUSE OF A BLANK CANVAS FOR THIS GIRL! (Perhaps I appeared overly excited about the chance to start from scratch. EVERYWHERE.)

  206. My kitchen cabinets are in desperate need of a makeover! I have read great reviews on Sherwin Williams paint for trim and cabinets, and can’t wait to give it a try.

  207. Patricia Hall :

    My bathroom needs the perfect light blue. Not insipid blue, not baby blue, not an intense determined blue, but just the right blue set off by a crisp linen white. Oh, and it should make me extremely happy every time I walk in.

  208. My sweet daughter would like her bedroom re-done. I would start with painting her “orange is not the new black” woodwork….(her woodwork has not been painted “orange”….our house was built in the 80s and all the maple is now “orange”)….not pretty. Then I’d let her make her own color choices !

  209. Wow! Sounds like everyone needs makeover!
    I am just finishing up makeover of entire house after 21 years of builder beige. Everything done but the trim. I’ve put it off because it was all painted in oil. I have been contemplating Dover White. I would love to finally complete this project. Thanks for the suggestion!

  210. my living room, bedroom

  211. Linda Master-Parker :

    We are building a home in the North Georgia Mountains, in the middle of a shady grove of trees. I would like to paint the great room green. BUT when I pick out green, I always seem to end up with Army green. Not the green that invokes calm, serenity and peacefulness. HELP! I’m awful at picking out colors.

  212. Oh my I LOVE Sherwin Williams paints!! Ok I have to be honest here… we have lived in this house for 4 1/2 years now and have never, I repeat never finished our bedroom or master bath. Yes, I hang my head in shame and admit it here for the world to know. We did recently paint our bedroom, but the bathroom well it is still the same Harley Davidson orange it was when we when moved in. (and it has no window… can you say dark, my friend?!) So it would be our bathroom that would benefit! (have you ever tried to put makeup on in a windowless orange bathroom? yep you get the picture! 😉 lets just leave it at I’ve given up for the moment! haha)

  213. My dining room desperately needs to not be RED anymore!

  214. Our really YELLOW (as in sunflower yellow) sunroom desperately needs new paint!

  215. Thank you for the opportunity to win a Sherwin Williams gift card….oh, the possibilities!! I am currently head over heels in love with Peppercorn and hoping to paint our exterior doors before the snow flies. Ugh. But what I dream of the most is giving the gift card to my daughter and helping her renovate her very first house. She is in love with Snowbound, a very white, white to freshen up all the walls and ceilings. We have already ripped out all the carpet and painted the floors with SW porch enamel until she can afford real flooring. What an amazing difference that made! It’s been 6 months and that paint wears like a cast iron skillet as my Mama would have said. We LOVE Sherwin Williams paint not only for the incredible quality of the product but the guys there are so helpful. A gift card would buy a lot of paint but also make some wonderful memories with my daughter. Thank you for all the inspiration and the chance to win.

  216. Betty Wranischar :

    I would love to have my kitchen island and guest bathroom cabinets painted a different color than my kitchen cabinets.

  217. Your posts always make me smile! My kitchen is next on the list. I haven’t updated it since 2001. So it’s number is up!! Thank you!

  218. Lady Delores LeBoeuf :

    Furniture……I have about 3 big projects that desperately need paint jobs and this would be the absolute thrill to finally have the luxury to choosing some fun colors, thank you.

  219. My den, for sure. It’s currently painted a shade of blue that would look fantastic in Miami. Not so good in Connecticut. I think the color I would use is Sherwin Williams Sea Salt.

  220. I have a few rooms that need paint and some making over. But, I think the one that needs it most would be our living room/entry/stairway/loft area. It has 20 foot ceilings and we’ve been putting it off because of that. I think it’s time to get some quotes and have it done. It would be so amazing to see some color in there instead of plain, white walls. And, we have a new Sherwin Williams store just down the road. Thanks for the opportunity to enter the give-away. 🙂

  221. i would love to re-paint my family room – tired of yellow!

  222. I would change my bathroom from banana yellow to ocean blue.

  223. Michelle Wright :

    My upstairs bathroom needs a paint job really bad.

  224. Long time ago, in a far away land I married my “Officier and Gentleman”. Life was exciting! The Navy sends you to some very exotic places. At one point we lived in 13 homes in 16 years. Decorating a house really wasn’t that difficult (or so I thought). Base housing was usually painted a beautiful glow-in-the-dark shade of white and was always far too small. Every. Single. Home. I’d unpack some of the boxes. Hang a few things up in our daughters’ room and BAM my decorating was done until the next set of movers showed up to pack up again. Fast forward 23 years, my husband retired, we built our “Forever” home and lived happily ever after….not. What have come to realize after being in our ‘forever home’ for a few years is that 1. We never lived in a house long enough to really think of it as ‘our’s’ 2. They were always houses never homes 3. We never lived in a house long enough to find our ‘style’. Guess what?!! We have found our style and need to do some serious updating.

  225. I just did some change ups in my dining room and would love to put a new color on the walls. Plus I really would love to do my ceilings before fall throughout my house. Thanks for the chance.
    Kris

  226. I would pick our master bedroom.

  227. Hmmm….well I really would like paint for our shed that is outside the house! 😉 but if it has to be inside the house I suppose I would pick the guest room. I would like to do coral and robin’s egg blue with gray walls in that room!

  228. Karie Gallegos :

    I would be thrilled to make over my kitchen!!! I bought my very first house 5 years ago…When we moved in things looked awesome! However little by little we are finding out that the former owner put a lot of band aides on things and the paint job was one of them…As the paint cured you could tell that only one coat had been done and it is driving me crazy! We spend most of our time in the kitchen – we love to cook, play with the grand-kids and watch tv in this room….The more time I spend in the there the crazier it makes me!! I would LOVE to be able to put some fresh paint on my kitchen walls so that we can continue to enjoy this room for years to come!

  229. My master bedroom is so lackluster with it’s ginormous white walls. HELP!!

  230. diedre roberts :

    I would paint my 1948 laundry room/bathroom.
    Thank you for the lovely give-a-way!
    Diedre

  231. My bathroom desperately needs a complete makeover!!

  232. My Master “retreat”!!! I need serenity!!!

  233. I would paint my bathrooms.

  234. The room looks wonderful! I have read many of the comments and I think someone else much more deserving than me should win this contest. I just want to say that I love Sherwin Williams, I have always found them to be very helpful and the minute you enter the front door someone always acknowledges your presence ( to me this is one of the most important things a sales person can do ) . Recently I was looking for a paint color for my front door and found this beautiful green tissue wrapping paper. I took the paper to SW and we came up with the color electric lime. Love my front door!. I am in no way connected with Sherwin Williams but truly love their service and their willingness to help. I hope one of your many other very deserving followers wins this contest. Thanks for your wonderful blog. Betty

  235. My living room needs new white paint! Every time I pass Sherwin Williams I feel a little nudge to paint my home because it is needed!

  236. Vicki Crandall :

    First, thank you for doing this giveaway! Take your pick. Our son is having his wedding at our house in October. Still to many rooms to get done! Breakfast nook, guest bedroom, bathroom, family room or screened porch!

  237. My basement is way overdo for a new paint job! Dover White is a favorite of mine, my kitchen cabinets are done in this fabulous color!

  238. I couldn’t agree with you more, KeriAnne. After many failed paint jobs over the years, I “test” the paint in advance. I buy large poster boards (from Michaels) then paint them and move them around the room at different times of the day. That way I get a preview of what the color will look like in varying degrees of light. If the color isn’t what I expected I’ve lost the money I spent on the paint but at least I don’t have to re-paint an entire room.

  239. our stairwell needs painting. all the way up to those 45′ ceilings.

  240. I would love to do a bit of work in the office! It really needs some love!

  241. My dining room is still RED and I mean candy apple RED. It is so closed in and needs PAINT…..WHITE PAINT!!! Sherwin Williams has such an array of colors and shades that I am sure they can solve this RED problem of mine!!!

    P.S. ❤ your blog ❤

  242. Marjorie Lavender :

    In order of desperation: Living room, foyer, kitchen, office, bedrooms, bathrooms, hallway.

  243. I love the bedroom makeover. Thanks for sharing it with us! I desperately need to paint the bathroom and master bedroom at my house. Thanks for doing the give away!

  244. My living room! It has the weirdest angles and I’ve always struggled with how to decorate the darn thing.

  245. It would definitely be my playroom. We have the oldddddd thick paneling that is hard to cover, so I would love to use a good paint like yours to make the job easier. Thanks for the heads up on the white color! I need a good color for some great light.

  246. I would redo our master bathroom! I just stripped the wallpaper! Now I have to decide on a paint color… Perhaps Dover White cabinets?

  247. I love everything about this bedroom-so perfect! I definitely need to re-paint our master bathroom. Apparently, not a room where you can cut corners and use a less-expensive paint-it looks terrible! Thanks for the chance to win!

  248. WOW!! This giveaway couldn’t of come at a better time! I would paint my family room, its been 10 years and I am so tired of beige. i LOVE the Sherwin Williams store in town, they “kinda” know me, and don’t even ask why do I need paint to match a Ball Jelly Jar:) Thanks for the opportunity, take care in Kentucky!

  249. I would love to freshen up my Dining Room area. It needs a brighter color, and you have given me some good ideas! Thanks for the chance to win!

  250. My great room needs a paint over. It is long and has french doors that face west. This means in the summer I must close blinds. I need a paint to add more light.

  251. I love Dover White. It is the color I chose for the moldings in this house and all the cabinetry. It is a perfect white for those things. (And painted furniture, too.) The mistake I made was the blue I chose to paint the ceiling, the guest bedroom and the guest bathroom. The blue is beautiful, don’t get me wrong, it is blue, of course. But I waffled on the teal-ish, color so much I just said, okay that one. Now that I am here! Well, Sherwin Williams Spa would have been the better choice. If I won, I would change to that color. I love it, and the teal would go so much better with the rugs. Love the blog, I am a new follower.

  252. my laundry room!

  253. My son is in college and his room really needs a makeover, into a son’s room/spare room. What fun!

  254. Our master bedroom is a lovely chocolate brown, but it’s been that way for ages and it’s time for a lighter color!!

  255. Although my bedroom needs a new paint job….I would have to go with our foyer which is open to the upstairs. It will be quite an undertaking!

  256. Without a doubt, the kitchen/den combo…..

  257. Holy Moly . . . it took me forever to get down here, Kari!
    We just redesigned our big entry way closet and I want to try something REALLY fun(ky) with that. Winter blahs are coming and everyone sees the closet when they hang up their coats.

  258. I need to repaint my family room, kitchen and the long ceiling they share. Lots of cooking, candles and rough housing has taken a toll. Thank you!

  259. My office! It needs to be brightened up!

  260. My kitchen and both bathrooms! Many thanks for the chance to win!!!!

  261. We just bought a house in October and have to paint EVERY room. I still have a lot to paint. I keep putting off the kids bathroom because not only is it BRIGHT PINK, the previous owners pasted crumpled up tissure paper on the walls to add “texture”. It is HORRIBLE. I think a gift card to the paint store would get me finally going on this bathroom (project). My kids would thank you (especially my son, hot pink is not is favorite color)! Thanks!!

  262. We just became empty nesters last weekend when our youngest daughter married the love of her life. I’ll miss her, I already do, but I’m thinking that painting her room and making it the new home office will help. Then it won’t look like her empty room. It will look like our awesome new home office ;>) Thanks for a great give away.

  263. I want to makeover our living room.

  264. Elizabeth Gamble :

    We bought a house last July that every room in it needs to be painted – my husband was laid off right after that and we have had to put it off. A gift card would go a long way to making a dent in what needs to be done.

    I adore the blog-

  265. It has gotta be my kitchen. It is on the brink of beyond help!

  266. My living room is begging for a makeover!

  267. Debbie Esparza :

    Love your beach bedroom! So pretty! My living room is in desperate need of new paint!

  268. My Dining Room!
    My house is over 200 years old. I have raised my family here for the last 19 years and my dining room has been the same color for 19 years! I have loved every minute of it but it is time, way past time, for a new fresh coat of paint in this room. Never wanted to change the color, a washed french yellow, but I am begining to envision new possibilities. And yes I agree with you, finding the right white is never an easy thing.

  269. Jennifer Goss :

    I need to do the living room, and the bathrooms, and the kids rooms, and . . .

  270. As I was reading and looking at the beautiful room at your beach house, I knew I was going to ask you if you’ve ever found the perfect gray. I did my bedroom last fall and the paint looks more blue than gray. Now I am in the middle of doing our office and next, the den. I want to do both rooms in a soft gray…no blue! We always use SW (we have a store nearby) so it would be great if you had some recommendations. And yes, the guys there are so helpful! 🙂

    Thanks for a great giveaway!

    Jane xx

  271. Which room? Oh, so many. We are currently working on our half finished kitchen. Most definitely could use some paint!!

  272. Michelle Kiel :

    Eeek! The bathroom needs a makeover!
    ~Michelle~

  273. Amanda Hartley :

    Hello, my name is Amanda and I’m a bathroom blue tile survivor…lol
    It’s awful! So, I am saying…RE-DO MY BATHROOM!!!…please.

  274. Hi, KariAnne…love your blog!!!, So I’m madly in love with my little home, but if I could change one thing about it, I would love to change my kitchen wall color! The beautiful dark slate countertops and dark cabinets are completely underwhelmed by the dingiest of dingy green walls.
    I know SW has the answer!!!

  275. My Bedroom! It’s currently a sickly green pockmarked with old nail holes… gasping for a makeover!
    -Edel-

  276. Powder room is in disarray awaiting drywall tomorrow . Sink, vanity, light fixture ready to install, so I need to purchase paint.

  277. My kitchen needs new paint ASAP!

  278. carol easterday :

    my bedroom has not been touched since the house was new in 2005 still has the builders white paint on the walls it is desperately in need of some color and an update

  279. I want to makeover my whole house, but I think the kitchen is next on the hit list.

  280. Thank you for offering the giveaway! I REALLY REALLY want to re-do my home office space. The previous owners had installed a wall of built-ins. Altho they are very functional and yes full – they are dingy beige laminate. I am on a mission to paint them black. Sophisticated black would make me so much more productive in there 🙂 !!

  281. Our guest room needs a major redo! Paint is the first place I want to start-

  282. Ashleigh hall :

    Oh my gosh!! This post of yours is so timely!! Our living room is the WRONG shade of white. Who knew?? If I won the gift card, the living room would get a coat or three of the RIGHT shade of white!! Thanks Karianne! 🙂

  283. I have a really long hall that currently needs wallpaper stripped and a fresh new color of “paint” applied. Pick me, I could sure use some help!

  284. My bedroom is in desperate need of a makeover. I moved in over 2 years ago and have been focusing on the rooms that are used by guests. The bedroom walls are a sad dingy white blank slate and I’ve only got a bed and a nightstand!

    Thanks for all of the hard work that goes into your site!

  285. My great room/dining room combo is so ready for some new paint and I would love to win this from Sherwin Williams!

  286. OY, we need to makeover our old bathroom..it sustained some water damage to the ceiling and our {ahem} sponge painted walls desperately need a soothing solid coat of paint…Farewell 1990’s – HELP!! 🙂

  287. Oh wow my master bathroom is awful. It’s a light blue with wooden trim. I so want to get this redone somehow someway. Been in this house 27 years and have never liked the bathroom . It’s so small and outdated. Would love to win this. Thanks for the chance!

  288. I’m slowly working on repainting several rooms in my home. I want to repaint my entire living room and foyer. For years I’ve had warm and dark colors and I find myself being drawn back to the lighter colors and white. The only problem is once I change one thing it has a domino effect.

  289. I would paint the guest room a sunny yellow.

  290. Bathroom! it needs help in the worst way!

  291. Our 1930s bathroom desperately needs a makeover. Love your blog!

  292. My family room…. so tired of the yellow… been way to long since that room was painted!

    Enjoy your blog so much~~

  293. My family room looks the same as when we moved in. That was in 1984! I think it’s time for a makeover.

  294. Karen McGuirk :

    Need to do some updating and paint the living room and makeover the entire room and paint the hall and foyer . Love Sherwin Williams so this would be great.

  295. Our Master Bedroom is in DESPERATE need of a paint makeover. We have lived in our house for 24 years…every room in the house has been painted at least 3 times since then, EXCEPT the Master Bedroom. Why is that??? Now, don’t get me wrong – I have had 4 different bedding ensembles and everything that goes with that, just never wanted to go to the trouble of repainting. My daughter (who is now grown and married and has a new house of her own) had a bedroom that was redone FIVE times before she went off to college!! I guess that’s what happens when you’re a mom – kids always come first…WELL worth it, I might add! LOVE your blog, by the way and have done MANY things in my home due to your inspiration!

  296. My bedroom needs light giving happy help with a new coat of paint. That is where I will start. Then to the ceilings and woodwork in the hall and Living Room with white. Lots of white.

    Thanks for all the inspiring posts full of you sharing life’s bumps, all sorts of useful info and examples to
    incorporate into our own homes. It is always fun to see when you have shown up in my mailbox.

  297. What room in my house DOESNT need a paint-over is more like it!

  298. My poor bedroom has needed a facelift for about 15 years. I need to take the wallpaper down and revive it with some soothing new walls. Help!

  299. My husband and I became empty nesters this year and are in desperate need of a makeover in a guest room that once was my youngest daughters! How fun would it be to pick out a beautiful blue and redo that room. Thank you for the opportunity!! Fondly, Debbie

  300. my whole apartment needs a new paint job! It’s this blah green and is so depressing!

  301. Jessica Davis :

    Its one room but really three distinct functions – Sun Room, Living Room, Dinning Room. They are the same color that was painted just before we moved in….flat yellow that was painted over blue with no primer. I never thought yellow could be so dismal. Between really must do projects and two babies since moving in painting has been on the back burner. Its a 1930’s bungalow with lots and lots of wood. I have been thinking a about white. This post has been so helpful! I had no idea that white was not just white. Going to get a few samples and see what looks good against all the honey wood.

  302. The former owners of our home painted the master bedroom a crayon greenish yellow. It is in desperate need of a soothing paint color makeover.

  303. Teresa Fields :

    My master bedroom, bath and bonus room!! It’s been at least 16 years and we still have the same furniture we bought when we married 31 years ago. We’ve raised 6 children. 3 are married, 1 in college, 1 special needs adult and a 16 year old yet to finish high school. We’ve done a lot to the house, but this room is way over due. We’re in planning stage and hope to start in September!!

  304. My sad bedroom has been wearing the same coat of paint for SEVENTEEN years! It’s desperately in need of a wardrobe change!

  305. We have a lovely old home with an ugly old bathroom! I would love to give it a facelift. Thanks for the chance to win!

  306. I would like to makeover my living room and add more color.

  307. Too many rooms to choose lol, probably kitchen or bedroom!

  308. Master bedroom and bath. Long over due.

  309. Karen Plummer :

    My three year old grandson, who lives with me, has decided that the water mark on the ceiling in the living room (from the leaky roof) looks exactly like a camel (actually it does). Now he wants me to paint a picture of a car next to it since I already put a camel on the ceiling! I need to paint my living room, first the ceiling and then the walls! (or else I need to learn how to paint a picture of a car!)

  310. Any room in my house could use a fresh coat of paint at this point but I would love to have my tomato red dining room color changed.

  311. Living room/dining room as it is one open space…I currently have paint swatches all over the walls. I think I need to look at dover white!!!

  312. I would love to paint my great room and my kids’ bedroom!

  313. Guest bedroom in my 1920s bungalow. …removed 2 layers of wallpaper much of it in tiny pieces. Walls are skimmed and ready for paint!

  314. I am looking for paint colors for my bathroom. Everything is removed in there waiting for paint. Now I need the perfect color to jump out at me:) who knew finding a paint color was so hard!
    Thank you for the giveaway:)
    Blessings
    Linda

  315. I am remodeling a 1979 home from top to bottom and the next room to be painted is a bathroom. Love SW paints!!

  316. Would love to paint our master bedroom.

  317. Both my bathrooms!!! I just learned not all greens are equal….painted my entire bathroom green and it looks like my grandmothers powder room….SW save me…..

  318. Wish I could send a picture.My bedroom hasn’t been painted since my daddy painted it and he passed some 15 years ago.I’m desperate!!!!!!!!!!!

  319. Waiting for the last college grad to move out & with her I’m sending the living room loveseat & sofa! It is part of a great room so it has high ceilings & connects to dining, kitchen & hallway. So it is one big project! Last time I ( must emphasis, I) painted 3×3 squares in 3 different beige tones on the largest wall over the basement staircase. Sigh… If I win the paint maybe I can hire a painter! LDM

  320. I agree that Dover White is the perfect shade of white. We have used this shade for all the white in our house the last twenty years! I am going to be painting our kids bath in a few weeks…seems like it always needs to be refreshed. Also wanted to say your picture you just posted is so pretty…You have the perfect shade of blonde! Just gorgeous! Really enjoy your blog.

  321. Suzanne Callaway :

    My huge foyer, currently wallpapered ….thanks for the opportunity to win!

  322. I would redo my living room! I just bought new furniture and would love to fix the whole room up!

  323. The gingerbread colored walls in the living room have to go!!!! I would like to have a really good neutral beige – not pinky, or yellow, just a good medium beige. I have black built in bookcases that will stay but with the beige on the back walls. Probably just one shade darker than the walls. I have new carpet and I have two new chairs that are a light rust but not orange with black designs in them and a black round table. All of the rest needs to be replaced and the wallpaper border left over from the 90’s can come down!!! It has the potential to be a very pretty room. I just need paint!!!! Thanks

  324. I’d repaint the kitchen and family room area. I’m tired of the golds and greens from 14 years ago and ready for some fresh creams and blues. I’d also like to paint the oak cabinets but that’s a whole other can of paint . . .

  325. My husband took our room down to the studs,, put up new Sheetrock and taped. My job is to prime and the room is ready for paint. This gift is just what I need. Thanks.

  326. KariAnne it is a sad thing to say but, even though I have repainted my daughters bedroom three times and my son twice, the living room three times, I have not repainted my bedroom/bath in GULP 20 years, since we were first married and oh my it so desperately needs it! But it’s back to school time so money has to go to shoes and books and oh my gosh, have you priced binders lately. I think we should all go in the binder business, they are so darn expensive!!! So money to remake my bedroom into a no kids sanctuary would be such a blessing!!!!

  327. Most of them. But next on the list is finishing the guest bedroom. Or starting the master bedroom. I haven’t decided.

  328. My purple bedroom needs to change.

  329. First of all, I LOVE Dover white. We have it throughout our house it adds nicely to the cottage feel I wanted in my Cape style home. Now, as far as making over room, I need to work on our bedroom and finish up the crafting room. I also need to vacuum up the raspberry glitter my granddaughter and I spilled on the floor yesterday while making a baby card for her future cousin. “Baby Charlie will love the pink glitter, right Grammy?”

  330. Lone this bedroom makeover and anything you do with a beach theme! We are closed recently on a new home so now have two houses that have rooms that can be painted. One before we move in. The other as we move out and prepare to tearfully sale after over twenty years. Both houses a bathroom could need an update in color and style. Thanks for having this contest! Love giveaways and door prizes.. learned that love from my Granny who was very very lucky! But not as lucky as me for having her in my life.

    PS I thought of you with Pringles can.. bought lightly salted and only ate a few.. not there yet but trying!

  331. The previous owners of our home never painted any room. So it was all still builder’s dull white when we moved in. In the last three years we’ve painted the main level in a custom SW blue and SW Killim Beige. But the bedrooms all need a “real” coat of paint. I plan on using the custom blue on the master room ceiling and am still searching for the perfect shade for the walls. Gray, beige, cream? Not, sure, but I love the hunt.

  332. My kitchen is my zen place…I would love to brighten it up!

  333. I would make over our basement family room, it really needs help, currently it is 1970’s wood paneling.

  334. We moved into a “downsized” beige house a year and a half ago. I did some decorating in the bedrooms and living area both before and after we moved in, but the kitchen really needs some personalizing and updating.

  335. Living room would get painted!!

  336. That would be my rather large laundry room! 🙂

  337. That would be my sunroom for sure!

  338. I would give our master bedroom a fresh, new look.

  339. I would use SW Mindful gray! My husband and I bought a foreclosure home and I need to paint EVERYWHERE!!!!! Net you at becoming! You had such a great session!

  340. The room I’m trying to turn in to a my new grand-twins nursery when they are with grammy!

    Christine

  341. My office/craft room/closet needs a make over… desperately! Help, please.

  342. I am wanting to make over my office/craft room!

  343. Where to start… the kitchen, our master bedroom, the bathrooms… you get the picture!

  344. Joy Pinkerton :

    My office is a great big disaster! It always has been and really needs help and some love! So much potential but just never comes together. Please help! ;)))

  345. Robin Stephens :

    I would love to be able to hand that to my husband so he could pick a color for his office. Pretty sure it’s never been painted beyond the builder’s paint. Nice post, too, on the wiles of white.

  346. Hmmmmm….which room, which room….probably the kitchen!

  347. my dining room….I’m tired of chocolate walls.

  348. My master bedroom that is still the color the ex-wife painted it. I have lived here 10 years why hasn’t it already been done? What is wrong with me?

  349. I just discovered your blog a couple of days ago. It is the first blog I’ve ever followed and I would just like to say thank you. I would like cheer up my family room. Smiles to all who posted comments!

  350. Our kitchen needs a makeover. Thank you for the recommendation on the white – I’ve made a note of it! And thanks for the chance to win!

  351. My spare bedroom is going to be my workout, change my life room as my treadmill is now relocated there. I would like to paint this room and make it brighter and more inviting. This room has never been painted, it still has the builder cream color primer, I would like to paint it making it brighter and more inviting.

  352. I need to paint the entire first floor. It is still “builder’s white” (which is a dingy cream) after 10 yrs because I can’t figure out how to paint an open floor plan. A trip to Sherwin Williams is in my future.

  353. Well I know I said this 2 years ago, but I AM getting ready to paint my living room – white. Maybe even Dover White.

  354. My front porch needs a makeover from top to bottom!

  355. My boring dull laundry room – 1 husband, 2 kids, 1 large dog – I spend a lot of time in there! It would be fabulous to brighten it up!

  356. My kitchen needs to be painted- walls and cabinets. Sherwin-Williams will be my paint choice, so thank you for the chance to receive some help.

  357. Would definitely paint our master bedroom and bath. It’s a smoky deep blue and way too dark for me. Hopefully, a transformation is coming!

  358. Every room in my house needs some paint love. Thank you for this opportunity.

  359. jackie dunlap :

    It would be nice to give my sons room a fresh coat!

  360. Definitely the master bedroom!! Thanks for the giveaway ,( and the inspiration )

  361. patty soriano :

    Almost every room needs paint job, but I’d like to start with the kitchen cabinets. They are sorely in need of a makeover along with the flowered walls ! Thank you for the chance to win the paint, KariAnne!

  362. My daughter just turned 5 and she wants a bedroom makeover in the worst way!

  363. We are in the planning process for redoing our kitchen and master bath. You are so right, color is so important and not at all easy. Sherwin Williams personnel are very helpful.

  364. Just finished renovating most of the upstairs. And as is the case when you clean up most of the space, the part that didn’t get paint now shows that she wasn’t painted. Soooo, my master bedroom can use some new paint since my bathroom and master closet just got all gussied up!

  365. My front entry and upstairs hall are in desperate need of painting!

  366. You know- it would have to be the living room! Thanks for discussing white paint. : )

  367. Thanks for a great giveaway. Love SW paint and the helpful crew at my local store. My ” room”to paint is my front porch….posts, railing and trim didnt pressure wash as clean as I hoped, and needs a coat of primer and SW “super white” to restore brilliance and curb appeal. Here in Georgia we use porches a lot!

  368. Stephanie Nicholson :

    I buy sample colors at SW almost every weekend – I’m like a kid in the paint candy store. We are getting ready to repaint our home’s exterior and the gift card would sure help! I love your blog, the neutrals in the house and then the beautiful colors in the gate house!

  369. It would be my kitchen! Its in need of a facelift!

  370. I would paint my bathroom! It doesn’t even have flooring right now. I have been walking on cement. Your place is just dreamy btw. 🙂
    Blessings~

  371. My master bath, it’s red right now, what was I thinking? LOL!!

  372. What a wonderful giveaway!! My Living Room is in need of an awesome paint job and this giveaway comes at the right moment!! I just love your beach bedroom makeover! So colorful and happy- just makes me smile looking at it!:) Thanks!!

  373. We’re going to be painting our kitchen, cabinets and all. I want white cabinets and a warm greige.

  374. My utility room needs a good paint work over. It is one room in the house that all visitors walk through to get to the rest of the house! I love Sherwin Williams paints!

  375. My master bedroom is in desperate need of a makeover.
    Wood floors, building a cal king & maybe window coverings are in the pipeline… But I’m concerned. Will the color I think I like now (Pantone’s String @ 1/2 tint) work with the new floor? My Rough Linen bed makeover?
    THIS is why it’s taken me a decade to start painting my home. That and Swiss Coffee isn’t all that bad. Certainly didn’t make me twitch like Navajo White!

  376. I LOVE Sherwin-Williams paint. It is simply the best and my kitchen is going through a makeover and the timing would be perfect for completing the job! Thanks for the opportunity.

  377. Rebecca Parsons :

    I would makeover the den, it has never been done and could use a makeover.

  378. I so need help with a white paint for a basement living room and craft room. Only two small windows in each room, both on the North side of the house. It is so dingy feeling, I need some life on these walls to encourage me to decorate. Thanks for the opportunity to enter this giveaway.

  379. Sheila Fraley :

    Living room. The north wall is mostly a gigantic, gorgeous, awe inspiring, river rock fireplace. The 20 year old burgundy wall paper is bringin’ it d o w n.
    Yes… I said bur-gun-dy : (
    R E S P E C T , my river rock is begging me…
    “Respect the river rock?” : )

  380. The first room we would tackle is the master bathroom. It is sorely in need of a new paint job!

  381. I have a front entryway and back family room that has needed paint for some time. I have a . Paint swatch color brushed on the wall but cant decide on the color yet. I know its not that one. Sherwin Williams would be just the place to go and get the right color paint I need! Thank you for offering the gift card!

  382. I would make over the guest bedroom

  383. I once loved our yellow living room – after 15 years I’m over it!

  384. How timely! I just got permission last night from the management of our apartment building (built in the 1880s in the Queen Anne style and listed in the National Register of Historic Places) that (if I bought the paint) they would allow our apartment to be painted, not in the standard issue beige/yellow/yuck color, but in
    WHITE, WHITE, WHITE. GLORIOUS WHITE!!!

    But boy do I need advice about WHICH WHITE???

    That Beach Bedroom Makeover Dover White looks so nice and fresh but we don’t have gorgeous Cape Cod beach light pouring through our Queen Anne style windows so maybe we’d need something more along the lines of INDUSTRIAL TRIBECA LOFT WHITE (to nicely play off the graphic Black&White Marimekko print ottoman I paid way too much $$ for).

    Not sayin’, I’m just sayin’…

  385. Almost every room in my house is on the list to be repainted.

  386. I am a daily visitor. you and your home are my inspiration. I live at the beach and wish you would come stay with me for a week just to tell me what I’m doing wrong in my home. My kitchen is desperate. I have taken your suggestions and made friends with my Sherwin Williams Store. LOL. I love your Blog and your humor and find that you and my morning coffee go perfect together thanks for everything you do. You are a Jewel here on Oak Island NC. You always have a beach place to visit. So what are you waiting for??? Come On….

  387. I have a bathroom that needs a major makeover. It has ugly wallpaper that needs to be removed and replaced with a beautiful paint color.

  388. I am in the middle of a much needed update of the whole 1st floor. New paint and new flooring. Take your pick kitchen,family room ,powder room, laundry or living room. $200.00 in paint would make this so much easier. More $ left for fun updates…pillows, etc.

  389. Actually its not a room that needs a makeover, we have a wooden windmill outside, it’s like 8 ft tall and it really needs a makeover, so that’s what I would use the gift card on. Some protective stain cause I love that thing and its been weathering the Texas sun and heat for 8 years now.

  390. I would re-do my bathroom. Time for a nice new change in there 🙂

  391. My master bedroom in the only room in my house not updated in 16 years. To say it needs a makeover, is an understatement.

  392. I’d love to makeover our bedroom. It could really use some color.

  393. My kitchen is screaming for a makeover. Started yesterday with the granite and now I need to find that perfect white. And only Sherwin Williams paint comes through my doors. They really have the finest paint money can buy!

  394. i would love to re-do our bedroom. maybe a pale aqua?? endless possibilities! i have used SW and love it. thank you for the chance to win!

  395. Whew! Thought I’d never get here! The odds are slim, I see ~ but I can’t pass up this great opportunity to try for a gift card anyway!
    Love SW! Just recently used their paint on the trim on our house, color matching the mortar in the brick. Unfortunately we chose a grey that has a bit of a green cast in some light =(. so we’ve learned THAT color lesson! Though many rooms inside could use it, the first one I’d want to tackle is the kitchen! (If I have to stare at this wallpaper much longer … !)
    So we need primer for the “it’s NOT coming off” paper and the “perfect white” … but I’m sure the knowledgeable staff can help us!!! Thanks for this $200 opportunity!

  396. Definitely our master bedroom!

  397. texasaggiemom :

    The kitchen is next!! Thank you for the giveaway!

  398. Our master bedroom desperately needs paint! Still living with the construction spray-painted cream- if you can call it that. BLAH! Love the beachy bedroom- especially the ingenious storage wall! Thanks for this great giveaway! Fingers crossed!

  399. Our master bedroom needs help. My sweet hubby travels a lot and I want this room to be calming and homey since he spends a lot of time in hotels. We have been married for 35 hrs and are more madly in love than ever so I would love to surprise him. Thanks so much….

  400. What room would I make over? Hmmmm….all of them! We just purchased a foreclosure, so as you can imagine, we are up to our elbows in projects. Paint required for all of them! Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  401. Love this room!! You are so talented and creative. I’m not entering the giveaway as I’m in an apt. Best of luck to everyone!

    xo
    Pat

  402. I am looking for an illusive warmish gray that has to work with my BM Chelsea Grey kitchen cabinets. It’s only a little thing – need to paint kitchen, living room and hallway the same color…. Hope I get it right the first time!

  403. That is such a pretty room! I would love to win this giveaway! I plan on repainting our master bathroom soon and we also plan on repainting our front porch, so we need some paint!!

  404. My kitchen needs a makeover and new paint!

  405. I would love to makeover my bedroom. *sigh* Love your decorating skills. Actually though, I love your writing skills even more. 🙂

  406. The master bathroom is in need of a paint makeover!

  407. A British Colonial style bathroom reno is dancing in my head.

  408. Bigger challenge: a room that does NOT need a makeover. But really, our roommate moves out THIS MONTH and we need to redo his room and transform it into a guest room/organized storage ASAP so the upstairs room can become a craft/office/maybe-future-nursery-because-we-haven’t-given-up-hope room with navy/white stripes. So yeah. The roommate’s room. Please. Heavens. Please.

  409. Paula Collins :

    In 1991 the home we build was all done in Dover White. Our house now is all color but, due for a change. We have a open living room dinning room and kitchen with cathedral ceilings. It is all blue with clouds we painted. That was about 8 years ago. We also painted the cloud theme 10 years before that. We need a change! Our hallway is red which everyone loves. A grey bedroom and bathroom. One blue office and a violet tone bedroom.

  410. My kitchen cabinets and walls are about to get a makeover. I’ll be doing lots of painting so this gift card sure would come in handy.

  411. Dianne Bell in Michigan :

    I would love to repaint my office/computer room/craft room a lovely shade of white. Right now it’s a really DARK black-grey. Ugh! With a warm white I could really get pops of color on my walls with my daughter’s and my creative art and color with a new comfy chair and pillows. Thanks!!

  412. Love to be able to help my daughter get her living room/ breakfast/den combo painted. Her entire house has been plastered without adding any color.

  413. I’m hoping to repaint my kitchen in a few weeks .. hoping to pick a nice shade of.. White! Wish I could have you over for a cup of coffee and some advice 🙂 thanks so much!

  414. Hayden Norwood :

    Need to paint everything in my house.
    We will be here for 2-3 more years before moving. Would love
    to see color and enjoy it before having to do it as we leave and never get to live in the space.

  415. Oh, wow! I would really like to paint my cottage living room Dover White.. I live a stone’s throw from the bay front and I want to use it as the backdrop for the nautical touches and decor I am using.

  416. can i say all of them! the whole house needs a makeover! but number one is the girls room! its just white! would love to add some color and some of thier paintings and make it not so hospital looking1

  417. Ohhhh, what a wonderful give away!!! I do so want to paint and redecorate our Master Bedroom. It needs it, OH, it really needs it!!!! I found two beautiful pictures at a yard sale and I decided I want to use them as a focal point which is totally opposite from what I was planning before I feel in love with those pictures. 🙂 So now I need paint and Sherwin Williams has such fantastic paints. I needed an odd color for trim in the bath a few years back/ We took in the swatch and the sweet gentleman said absolutely no problem. He came back out with a perfect match.. I’m a happy customer. 🙂

  418. The greens got to go in my living room! It’s not easy being green!

  419. Jackie Palmer :

    My daughter’s room was last painted when she was 9. She is now almost 16 and needs a whole new look and paint!

  420. Two steady years of remodeling our 1969 fixer upper and Sherwin Williams is always our go- to paint! Only two rooms left that have not been painted. My office/hobby room and our little half bath which currently is painted in the darkest army green I’ve ever seen. :-/

  421. My living room is in need of a new paint color/job. It is currently painted with a (once popular) faux finish circa 1999!

  422. Debra Rutland :

    Bedroom is desperately in need of new paint. Rice Grain would be nice.

  423. I would make over the dining room in the home we have just purchased in South Carolina!!

  424. We’re in the middle of a remodel. What doesn’t need to be done? This would be awesome!

  425. I would makeover my kitchen! We are about to get our house ready to sell, and I don’t think a buyer will appreciate the dark shade of pink in there. Lol.

  426. Our master bedroom!
    Thank you !

  427. my living room needs a makeover & some paint!!! So tired of “builders white” that isn’t true white!

  428. I’ve got a new place, so pretty much every room, but especially the bedroom!

  429. Cathy Johnson :

    My craft room! Would love to give her a make over!

  430. I’d make over my toddler’s room!

  431. Glenis Zuhlke :

    My family room / kitchen (great room?) really needs to be painted.

  432. My guest room could use a bit of freshing up! I just put a new blanket on the bed and was thinking -needing some paint and maybe some planking if I can convince the husband. 🙂 Thanks!!

  433. Very pretty room! Make me feel like heading to the beach rather than back to school! I really like the numbers on the night stand!

  434. Both of our bathrooms need serious help!

  435. My living room really needs a makeover

  436. I have beadboard on my walls more than a third of the way up. It covered damaged areas so it had to go up higher than chair rail height. Anyway, we painted it “white” with a light tan on the remaining wall space. When the drop cloth came up from our natural maple floor, we were in for a surprise. The white looked off the tan looked fleshy and the floor looked yellow. Huh? Everything changed colors like magic. Bad magic! So I’ve learned a lot from your blog and would like to put it all into action…however cost has been an issue. So here I sit in my weirdly neutral, but not harmonious home waiting for a gift from the decorating gods. Please please please let me be the winner and get this mess figured out! Thanks

  437. A whole house! We are planning on having a house built…so we need tons of paint! Love your story 🙂

  438. Lee Ann Mader :

    After our college son #1 moved home, and moved out again, the walls of our basement family room and stairwell need a major makeover. My Sherwin Williams paint job is wracked with scrapes, dings, and some mighty large divots where couches and bed frames were heaved out of our lower level. It is in dire need of a fresh coat of Canvas Tan (SW 7531).

  439. I would make over my bedroom!

  440. Our basement family room is waiting patiently to be painted. It’s difficult to find the right paint color because the rooms flow from one to the next… One with windows, the others without.

  441. My dining room is going to turn into a kids hangout/homework room and it DESPERATELY needs some help! ,

  442. Diane Schultz :

    I would redo my kitchen!

  443. I need to repaint my nursery!

  444. Fabulous giveaway! I’d love to redo my den/kitchen! It’s one big room and I have them painted a rusty red, that I loved, but after 8 years, it’s time for a more neutral makeover! Love your blog and thanks again for the chance!
    Kara

  445. I would have to choose the laundry room! It’s in need of some new paint! Since white is my favorite, I’d probably choose Dover White. We have Sherwin Williams throughout our house and LOVE it. My favorite of their colors is Sedate Gray….lovely.

  446. I would love to make over my master bedroom.

  447. Lauren Becker :

    my mom could really use this for her room. She desperately wants to change the color!

  448. I would makeover my living room. Hopefully sherwin williams would be able to tell me how I could cover up or do something with the ugly wood panelling covering half the walls.

  449. I’m building a home and this would be so handy and helpful in our expenses toward painting the bedrooms. I’m thinking of putting these barn style doors that I would love to paint bright yellow in one bedroom and another bright color in the other bedroom.
    Thanks
