DIY Sidewalk Paint featured on FormulaMom

DIY Sidewalk Paint - the perfect summer activity for little onesQuick and easy afternoon crafts are something we love to do. Especially when the weather is nice and the kids are eager to get outside. This craft is not only fun for the kids but it’s easy to put together and very inexpensive. There are only three components to this paint: water, corn starch, and food coloring. You can’t get any simpler than that.

An added bonus is the fact that both of my children could partake in this activity. My 15 month old doesn’t have to sit back and watch Brother make yet another craft without her. She jumped right in as soon as she saw the brushes and didn’t stop until it started getting cold out. I love how creative and imaginative both of them can be together with just paint and a sidewalk.

Shared Bedroom Ideas for Brother and Sister

Shared Bedroom Ideas for Brother and Sister

My kids have been sharing a bedroom for quite some time and we’ve tried a few different shared bedroom ideas for brother and sister in the past three years. But I think we’ve finally found the perfect arrangement to work for both kids.

After my daughter outgrew her toddler bed we got the kids a bunk bed. But the whole time we had it my son was constantly complaining about wanting his old bed back – his twin bed. So after hearing the complaints day in and day out I decided we needed some changes.

Plus it was about time we turned the kids room from a toddler room to a big kid room. And painting over the hills on the walls and removing the wall decals we had up felt like it’d help us do that. [Read more…]

Creating a New Home Look with Glidden Paint

Glidden Paint cans

One of the most inexpensive ways to spruce up a home and make it feel new is to grab some paint and freshen up the walls. Not only does new paint make the space feel new, it also can be a great way to change up the look of the room. By playing with colors and picking out something different than what was there before you can change the whole dynamic of the room.

I’ve wanted to turn our playroom/office into something more for quite a while. I was frustrated with the space we had and knew I needed to change a few things around in order for it to work properly for us. Plus we are seriously lacking in storage.

So I set out to find the perfect solution. And I did! We have converted the closet in the playroom/office into an office/craft area that not only provides the storage I need for all my crap craft supplies it also gives us the space to create and work as well.

And with the condition of the walls in this room we knew some fresh paint would do the space wonders. I grabbed a few quarts of Glidden interior paint and saw a gorgeous transformation of what was to what is.
