A DIY challenge team.
Those who follow DIY blogs know what I am talking about.
They get stuff done!
They create cool headers!
They form a cool little cult-like circle around them and their blogs!
Lookie at that!!!
I am a part of something with other bloggers!!!
AND I have met all of the above in person so I can honestly say they are cool chicks.
Julie, Katie, Chrissy.
Especially that one with the blonde hair and the green door.
So when my friend Julie over at Pocketful of Joules invited me to do this cool DIY challenge, I was in.
Here is the down and dirty:
– we have to attempt a DIY project in our home that we have been wanting to tackle
– it can be inspired from anywhere…Pinterest, a blog, HGTV….anywhere.
– I will show you what I plan to do today and then I have two weeks to achieve final product status
– then on November 26th, we reveal what we have done!
– and the winner wins $100,000!!!! Juuust kidding. Maybe next year when Oprah funds this!
So I have two ideas.
I just don’t know which room I plan on attacking yet.
It depends on what Home Depot has on sale this weekend, really.
Oh, and did I mention I want to spend less than 50 dollars?
Actually closer to 25 dollars.
Here are two rooms that are proverbial thorns in my side:
In case you were wondering, this is a laundry closet.
Not a laundry room.
A laundry closet.
With the worst lighting known to man.
Which is why I keep the doors shut.
Even when I am doing laundry.
I have been pinning ideas on Pinterest for laundry rooms closets for a long time now.
Or hoping for a laundry closet fairy to come down with a magic wand and make this happen one night while we are sleeping.
The other project might not seem dire but it is close to my heart.
This is my five-year old’s room.
The name of the color is PEPTO BISMOL PINK.
No, I am kidding.
But it really should be named that.
I picked the color while pregnant.
On happy hormones.
IT’S A GIRL SO IT MUST BE ALL THE PINK IN THE LAND OF PINKS!
But over the past year, my almost-six-year-old has been begging for a purple room.
“Please Mommy, paint it purple!”
“I am not a little girl anymore, I want a big girl room!”
Because in her sweet little head, pink equals little girl.
So this most likely will be the room to get the change.
And I will live to shut the laundry door another day……
Stay tuned to see what room got voted off the island!!
