You may have noticed the wooden lamp in my stepsons’ room in the photos I shared from their room makeover.
My husband and I found it at Goodwill a LONG time ago and swore we would give it a makeover. Well, that never happened. However, we needed it because none of the bedrooms in our apartment have overhead lighting and it provides the only lighting in the room.
When Walmart challenged me to do a spray paint project with the new Rust-Oleum American Accents Ultra Cover 2X paint, I knew that I would finally tackle this lamp. :: READ THE FULL POST
Last week, my husband and I did something we swore we wouldn’t do: We painted another room. Did I mention we’re renters? Yeah. And we’ve already painted the dining room and our daughter’s room, so we’re going to have a lot of un-painting to do when we move out — or a big fee to pay. But what can I say?

I’m not going to lie. Lately, doing projects around the house has been the last thing on my mind — particularly if said project is at all time consuming. Enter Walmart‘s Projects Made Simple series. If you’ve never heard of it, the name is a very good descriptor. Projects Made Simple is a series of DIY projects that come with video instructions and step-by-step guidelines for getting them completed.

I recently learned that two different family members are pregnant. After my initial excitement for them subsided, my brain immediately went into nursery mode. Even if you haven’t done a whole lot to the rest of your home to make it as nontoxic as possible, the nursery is a great place to start. And of course, making your nursery eco-friendly doesn’t mean making it boring or drab. You can stil welcome your little one to a world of color with Baby Room Colors from Glidden® Paint, as seen in What to Expect When You’re Expecting (only in theaters). :: READ THE FULL POST
In spite of my husband’s request that we not paint this apartment, I just can’t help myself. The dining room was first on the list, and once I get the painting/decorating/prettifying bug, I can’t get rid of it. Luckily for me, Walmart recently asked the Walmart Moms to try Glidden’s newest offering: their no-VOC Brilliance Collection 2N1 Paint + Primer. Of course, I wasn’t a matter of if I should paint, but what to to paint. :: READ THE FULL POST
