I was so excited to be invited to become a Lowe’s Creative Ideas Network Member because it means that I will be provided with monthly challenges, a gift card from Lowe’s to help facilitate those challenges, and a Lowe’s gift card to give away to one of my readers.
The challenge (or Mission Possible as I like to think of it) that I received for April was to pick a room, any room, and use a $300 Lowe’s gift card to give that room a makeover/facelift. I immediately knew that I wanted to re-do Put Pie’s room.
Put Pie, my 3-year-old, has a very tiny room that is prone towards clutter. Her room is very difficult to photograph since it is so small, so I took a video to show you what we started out with…
We headed to Lowe’s and with Put Pie’s help we chose a great shade of “Plink” to repaint her wall and a few other items.
We really wanted to go with a no VOC emissions paint and primer and were very happy to be able to find them at Lowe’s.
The item I was most excited to find via Lowe’s was this Sauder Shoal Creek Soft White Twin Bedframe:
I saw this item available on the Lowe’s website. They didn’t have it in the store, but a very helpful salesperson ordered it for me and it was shipped to my home at no extra cost. Score!
Other items we used to fix up her room were things we already owned and repurposed.
- A small wooden shelf that we painted plink.
- A small dresser we painted plink.
- Curtains that I added ribbons to the top of so that they would hang evenly.
- Artwork and posters that we already had.
Ready to see the results? Tada!
The best part of this challenge is that it showed me that you don’t need to invest a lot of money to redo a room and see a significant difference. The paint alone lightened up the small space and made it seem roomier.
