In our Style Challenge series, we ask some of our favorite bloggers from around the web to surprise us with their ideas for creating a stylish and functional space using Home Depot products as a starting point.
Carrie Waller, Creative Director of the Dream Green DIY blog, shows us how she completely transformed the look of her spare bedroom with a simple painted faux crown moulding. To complete the room makeover, she replaced a ceiling light and repurposed some decorations from her DIY wedding. As you’ll see, the results of this inexpensive project are simply stunning.
Paint is the single most frequently used supply in my arsenal of DIY materials and has quickly become the go-to standard when I’m dreaming up a room refresh. From furniture and accessories, to drywall and doors, paint has almost no transformational limit.
For this project though, I wanted to try something that I never had before. I have been itching to add crown moulding to our second bedroom (turned studio), but had neither the time nor the money to tackle the complicated project. Thankfully, inspiration struck before I grudgingly forked over the cash and set aside the weekend to get the update taken care of– and all it took was a can of paint and painting supplies. No saw required!
