Help me Paint Lucy's Room, HUGE final Valspar GIVEAWAY and WINNER from past Giveaway (CLOSED)

This is a sponsored review from BlogHer and Valspar Paint.

Well folks Lucy's room is finished! Thank you for helping me along the way.

For the past month....
* You helped me brainstorm about the perfect color choice.
* You voted for your perfect color choice.
* I shared the colors we choose and showed you our painting progress.

And now......it's time for the big reveal!

But first,

CONGRATS to winner of the 3rd $100 gift card to Lowe's!......
#46 - Embily! who said: i love it! i think it's just perfect that you chose a few different colors to paint her room! -Emily F

Thanks Emily. I'm happy I went with multiple colors too. It adds so much..."fun" to the room.
Okay, enough chatting. Time for pictures.

But first, let's remember how dull and boring Lucy's room used to be.

The BEFORE:
and.......

The AFTER!

Using these Valspar paints colors from the Valspar color tool, we transformed a boring white room into something colorful, fun, and still girly:

I also chose accent colors for her furniture and other decor:
LUCY's NEW Room!

Come on in and I'll give you a tour.....
Here's what we used:
* ICY BLUE on the left side of the room
* TOP BANANA on the right side wall
* Accented the back wall with vertical stripes of CITY STORM and ULTRA WHITE. The white paint is a flat finish and the gray is semi-gloss so that the stripes pop out a little more when you're in the room.
Of course a beautiful touch to any room is nice wood molding. We added crown molding to the entire ceiling and framed the window with additional trim. All the moldings and doors were painted with ULTRA WHITE, semi-gloss.
Crown molding and other framing are not hard to do. You do need some tools and a simple "how-to" book or tutorial. But with a coat of ULTRA WHITE on there, it adds such class and pop to the painted walls. I absolutely love it and will continue adding it to more rooms in our house.
My favorite improvement to the room is Lucy's kitchen/dining area and the "outdoor" market. I repainted her old furniture with Valspar paints as well! I used ULTRA WHITE for most of the pieces and accented them with SCARLET SUN and RAPIDS:
We added a vintage mirror to the wall next to her door, with a shelf and cups for dressing up in colorful beads.
And guess what? I used my Valspar paints to create artwork too! I painted SCARLET SUN on a large canvas and used ULTRA WHITE to paint large dandelions over the top.
It's been a busy month. But I love the results.

Thank you for helping me go from......
To:
Lucy now has the best bedroom in the house. Lucky girl.

BUT WAIT....the fun isn't over yet! Now it's your turn to be lucky!

For the past month we've been giving away $100 giftcards to Lowe's Home Improvement store so that you can buy Valspar paints too. And today we have a grand prize to give away.

Her room is AWESOME!! I love that it's not super girly (pinks and purples), but still feminine! What a generous giveaway. We are in the process of getting ready to build a house and that gift card would go a long way! Thanks for the chance to win this giveaway!

So awesome. I am actually a little envious of the sweet awning over the "market" and the window over the table and chairs--M has been asking me for a window and I love the way you made it happen for Lucy!

Great colors, and the trim really makes it all pop. Congrats, Lucy!

Helen said...

Oh my goodness! I love the brightness of the room!! Love the yellow by the window! So bright and fun! Love the stripes as well. Hmmm. so inspiring.

Sarah Pead said...

The room is incredible! It totally fits her fun personality and it's perfect for a girl her age. I love the little market area and the wooden kitchen set. Dana, you are a genius! Hope I win this gift card. Our new home could use all the tender-lovin-care we can give it...and I think my Hubby just might pee his pants if we win it!

Diana said...

I'm not sure if any one else has quite the eye that you do. When I saw the colors you picked I knew I would have to wait and see what you did, and sure enough, it's brilliant. Let's just hope I can be half as brilliant when it's my turn to spruce up...

Carly said...

Wow! I never would have picked those colors to use together but it looks amazing!

Shannon said...

I am completely amazed! The transformation of her little kitchen with the window and shelves, and the mirror with a place to get dressed...Ah-Mazing! I want to do that in my daughters room, someday I will! (boo on renting) Love love love it! You have completely inspired me Dana!

Keren said...

OMG - that is amazing. the room looks so much larger. great job. i looove the outside market area

Shauna said...

Are you kidding me with that awesomeness? Any little buddy would be lucky to live in that room!

Have a God Filled Day

BrudFam said...

I love the gray stripes on the wall---so unexpected and fun, plus all the other colors you used really pop. The scalloped awning is amazing!! I think a tutorial on that would make a lot of people happy (including me!). Great job!

kristen said...

Hello!? Adorable!! I love that it's not a traditional girly pink room but you can still totally tell it belongs to a girl. I want those grey stripes and little yellow mirror. LOVE.

Kim said...

So Cute!! I love what you did for organizing in the market sections. I love all of the fun colors, especially the accent ones!

Jess said...

I love Lucy's room! I just got married a month ago and our wedding colors were grey & yellow, so that combination will always have a special place in my heart.

Tara said...

Wow Dana! Such an inspiration. Great Job!

Tutu said...

I love it! It makes me want to go paint something, but we'll be moving soon, so I guess I should wait!

marymary said...

What do I think? I think you are genius. And I think I could have an absolute heyday with $500 at Lowe's.

dara said...

I am not sure if I qualify because I live in Canada, but i'll leave a comment nonetheless. I am a huge advocate of decorating but not having to spend a fortune. i have painted my kids rooms using a variety of paint techniques and they love their rooms. THis is a great room for your daughter to enjoy. I love how you tied it all together.

Riece said...

The final product is... amazing. Honestly. Wow.

Amy O'Neill said...

Love it... How fun!! I would have never thought that the the City Storm gray color would really pull everything together. I am definitely inspired to work on my girls room.

Lisa Auger said...

I LOVE it...it's such a FUN room! You're great at details. Thanks for sharing.

Nicole @ Create and Delegate said...

It's incredible! I would have never been brave enough to do that, but now that it has all come together, I'm feeling a little more confident to go bold.

Dana, you have totally outdone yourself! Lucy's room looks incredible. Fun, modern, flat out cool! Can you come do mine next? :)

Diana said...

I love what you have done. Such a fun room. I bet Lucy loves it too. I like the mirror idea. I'll have to find one for my girls.
Great Job!

Love it! The contrasting colors are perfect! That's a lot of hard work, but I'm glad you like it as much as the rest of us!

Bridget said...

It looks amazing! I love that you added the gray in with the yellow. I love those colors together!

trippin said...

What a FUN room!! I love how it turned out. I can see why your husband was nervous. It probably sounded crazy. If I tried to pull of something with that many colors it would probably be a huge mess. You really pulled it off. Great job!

Sara said...

You've out done yourself! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I would have never thought to put those colors together, but they work so well and Lucy's room is so fun! My favorite project you've done so far.

elise said...

it turned out so perfect! classy and still so much fun for Lucy. i love the play area with the little market/kitchen area, but i think my favorite is the sweet little mirror area for getting pretty. so precious! it would be nothing short of a miracle if we won the giftcard for paint!! our whole house (besides the kids rooms that we've actually painted) is either off white or 80's wall paper- save us!!!!

Love it. The colors looks so great together.

I'm in love with what you've done to Lucy's room! We just finished painting our entire house with Valspar paints...our brand of choice everytime we paint. I'm in love with the crown molding you used and I'll be showing this post to the hubs this evening (hopefully to persuade him into putting it in all our rooms too)!Your colors mesh so well together and I'm excited for your follow-up posts on the decorating! Congrats on such a successful make over!

kris said...

Thanks for the inspiration!

Stapley Clan said...

Loved the dandelion wall art. Lucy is lucky to have such a bright and fun room.

megan.futo said...

Lucy's room looks fantastic! And the awning over the market area is soo cute, I may have to try that one myself. Thanks for sharing.

Jill said...

Her room is adorable. It's fun, fresh and will encourage TONS of creative play. You did a great job!!

Danielle said...

Wow! It's amazing what a little paint can do for a space. I love the color palate but especially the calming ice blue. I love the way the yellow and white awning pop off the light background. Such a good job!

Mindy said...

Wow Dana! I never would have thought to use the gray in a little girl's room, but it looks fantastic! How in the world do you have such ingenous vision!? this is beautiful.

Miranda said...

I love love stripes in kids rooms! We did some wide stripes in my little one's nursery and I adore them. The three wall colors you use play off each other so well...and I think when you're going for color, you ahve to go all out and paint every last detail-like you did. It's fantastic!

Darnetha said...

I love the icy blue wall with the yellow mirror and the red boots underneath. Perfect!!

sniffmommy said...

Cute stuff. Would love a gift card to paint up my house!

Cheryl Wilson - O'Pry said...

Too, too cute! She is indeed a lucky girl. One of my favorite parts is the yellow & white awning but it's all just so cute. Great job on the painting too!

Em said...

Oh! It's just spectacular! I LOVE the little canopy you added over the outdoor market. I'm wondering where you found the little wooden kitchen set. I have a little girl (and another on the way) and this would be the perfect addition to their room.

Opp Family said...

Oh my goodness! I LOVE how it turned out - I can't wait to figure out how you did the awning. Everything turned out fantastic!

Tracy said...

I love the color choices! Especially how you decided to paint her sweet kitchen and table with chairs. It ties everything in so well! Oh and who wouldn't LOVE those gray stripes!?!?! :)

Deidre said...

Your color choices NEVER cease to amaze me! I LOVE that it isn't pink - screaming the normal girls room.

Oh, and would a $500 gift card be so useful for us right now! What an amazing giveaway!

Deidre@realifephotos.com

Jessica said...

OMGoodness!!!! I love the outdoor market! Such a cute idea. She's never going to want to leave that room!

Laura said...

What a fun, sassy room! I'm sure she'll love it for years to come. I would!

Alison said...

Dana, you really worked wonders with this! In about a year, we'll have our own house and I hope to be able to have a transformation this awesome for my son's room.

Jen said...

The makeover is awesome! What a lucky little lady, oh my goodness! I would love to win the Lowe's gift card, that would be insane :) Thanks! And great job!!

Rachel Ann said...

I would love to add some color to our place. All of our walls are either white or tan. My boys have a jungle themed room and it would be soo fun to be able to give it some color!

I love that you used stripes in between the two different colored walls. Definitely adds interest to the room, and helps tie the whole color scheme together. You did a fantastic job!

Love the kitchen and market place and the colors blend it all in. I love stripes, but have been scared to give it a try. Perhaps, you have given me courage.

Fantastic! I want a fun room for myself!. Love how all the different colors actually work together. It inspires me to take a little risk with color. Thanks!

It looks amazing!! The inner child in me is jealous that I never had a room like that! I love how you made a "window" over the table.... great setting for some tea parties and play like that :)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE and am very envious of your creativity and drive to turn ordinary into beautiful. I would have defaulted to pink "girly" colors but love how you have taken grey and scarlet and made them so girly.

Elise said...

Wow! Lucy is a lucky girl! The room turned out beautifully, and it will grow along with her.

Alicia said...

I love it. The little kitchen area is probably my favorite. You always do such a fabulous job! It's given me some things to think about as I need to do my daughter's room.

Marcia said...

I LOVE IT ALL! But my favorite part is the cute little kitchen remodel. :) fun what some cute paint can do.

I was so curious how you were going to pull it all together. It looks fabulous. My favorites are the dandelion art, and the little window-that is so adorable. Great job!
