Mini Makeover Challenge: Our Joy His Glory

I am so excited to share this month's Mini Makeover Challenge. This month +Leslie Hale from Our Joy...His Glory took the challenge. I absolutely love what she did! Take it away, Leslie. 

Hey, y'all!  I'm Leslie from Our Joy...His Glory.  I was tickled when Amanda asked me to participate in her Mini Makeover Challenge! 

THE CHALLENGE:  Make over a space in your home without spending a dime...or a penny for that matter.

The minute I got her email about the challenge, I began to think about areas in my home that I could "fluff" with items I had on hand.  Then it donned on me...I had a bunch of half-used paints in the garage and a drab wall in my entryway that could use a little TLC.

Starting point:

We've turned our awkward entryway into a breakfast nook/school space.  We spend a lot of time in this space and it's never been quite to my liking.

A few weeks ago, I updated the gallery wall and I think I like it.  I think.


How to add a little pizazz to a drab wall with no money, you ask?  Add stripes!

After measuring, leveling, and taping my lines, I used the base color paint (dark gray: Valspar Wet Pavement) and painted over the tape to seal the lines and prevent the lighter color from dripping under the tape.  I found the tip on a blog and it worked wonderfully.  I ended up with perfectly straight lines and hardly any drips. If I'm lyin' I'm dyin'.

I had left-over paint (Valspar Woodlawn Snow) from my kitchen update and used it as my contrasting color.


This little update took me just over two hours start to finish including clean-up!  How's that for a mini-makeover without spending a penny!? 

Thanks for the challenge, Amanda! 
Amazing!  I think adding the stripes was just the thing to make that space have "wow" factor. And what is more amazing is that it was achieved without spending a dime! Thanks so much, Leslie, for sharing with us today!
