Deciding what color to paint a room is often a task on its own. Can you remember how many times you've stood in front of a sea of color chips with a blank stare on your face not knowing which one to pick? I've certainly done it way too many times, especially when faced with the hard decision of choosing the 'perfect' white. That's why, as a contributor to My Colortopia blog, I chose to break down the myths about this terrific neutral and its many tonalities in a post for their Color 101 series. I invite you to take a peek and get the nitty-gritty on this popular color that will help you decide which one is the right one for your project. Besides white, the series also expands on other color families and gives you tips to help you make the right color choice. Enjoy!  

I have been sponsored by the Glidden® brand paint for PPG to write this post but the thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. I guess because it's a time for renewal and for getting our homes ready for the warmer seasons. While attempting to do some Spring cleaning I came across these old frames I had bought a few months back. So in order to spruce things up a bit I decided to take them out of seclusion and give them a fresh new look. With couple of paint testers and blue tape I created some cool looking artwork for my bedroom wall. You can see the whole process and how great they turned out here.

Repurposing old pieces of furniture, garage sale finds or family heirlooms is always a fun DIY project to work on. I recently found and old, shabby desk I knew would work great as a bathroom vanity for a project I was working on. With a couple of coats of paint, a new glass top and fresh hardware, I was able to transform a beaten down desk into a brand new piece for this bathroom. You can see the whole process here.

It's that time of year when we all have a list of small projects around the house to get it ready for holidays and our guests. One that I have been putting off for a while, but I knew I couldn't procrastinate any longer, was revamping this cute little vintage desk I found a few months back in one of our many trips upstate New York. Don't get me wrong, the desk was in pretty good shape but I felt a fresh coat of paint will liven it up and give it a new fresh look. As a contributor blogger to MyColortopia, I came across this amazing Glidden Trim & Door paint that I knew would work wonders for my project. Since it's an oil base paint, I knew it would give it the glossy, lacquer-like finish I was going for.
