I have some fun news to share with you and an upcoming Spring makeover. I’m participating in this year’s FrogTape Paintover Challenge, along with five other bloggers, to redo a space. We were each assigned a different theme based on one of this year’s design trends as named by designer and tv host Taniya Nayak. And, here’s the really good part: after each project is completed and revealed on our blogs, voting will begin for your favorite makeover/paintover. Once the results are in, FrogTape will donate $5000 to a charity of the winner’s choice. So, there’s really no way to lose here, right?!
I am happy to be “competing” for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. They not only do great work in medical research and prevention, but treat sick kids without ever sending a bill to the families, thanks to generous donations. You can learn more about their amazing work here.
My project will be designed around the theme of “nature’s influence.” It’s all about textures, a natural color palette, fresh flowers, etc. Our sadly neglected and mismatched screened porch seemed like the perfect candidate for this theme—and for a makeover just in time for warm weather.
I decided to take my cues from the beautiful greens of Spring I see blooming all around me and the gorgeous blue skies that go so well together. The biggest change will be painting over our murky floor with a fresh coat of green paint. I’ll post an update and paint colors next week, but here’s the overall idea:

Stay tuned for another update next week. In the meantime, check out the five other bloggers tackling their own “paintover” challenges:
