Sherwin-Williams and Chip It! may have changed me from a non-decorator to a decorating diva! For those who love decorating, you won’t believe how much I didn’t like it. Now that I’ve done it, quite successfully I might add, with the help of Chip It!, I’m ready to re-do the whole house. Vince isn’t quite there yet. Here’s the guest room photo . . the “before” shot. The walls were a grayish lavender and the carpet is a creamy beige. When I was introduced to Chip It! I had so much fun chipping pictures I found on the internet or pictures I had taken. I know you’ve heard of Chip It! but have you tried it? It’s so simple to use! There’s a very short video that will explain it all! You can get the Chip It! button just like the Pin It button for Pinterest. First you drag the Chip It! button below to your toolbar: When you find a picture online or have a photo you’ve taken, simply “Chip It” and a palette will be generated, showing the Sherwin-Williams paint colors that perfectly match the colors in your photo. The picture that made the final cut for my project was my Ruby picture. I have carried this picture in my purse, one in the car, even Vince has been known to be carrying one around with him. The paint color we chose for the walls was Sand Beach, which is the top left color on the Chip It! palette. It goes great with the carpet. Ready to see the room makeover? Didn’t it all turn out nice? The quilt is one that I already had. I did buy the eyelet dust ruffle but because of the height of the bed, it was too short so I purchased a tan longer ruffle and the tan pillow sham and the throw pillow. I chose not only to use the Ruby chicken picture but to go with a “chicken” theme. The first pieces I bought were the basket which holds plastic eggs and a wooden chicken perched on top of the jewelry box. The very old children’s book, The Little Red Hen, which was a gift from a friend, sits next to the chicken. I bought matching lamps, a large one and a smaller one. This bed is really tall and a lamp sitting on a regular night stand is hard to turn off without getting completely out of bed. After I bought the lamps, I found these extra tall three drawer night stands that I thought would be perfect for this room! On the left side of the bed sits the framed picture of Ruby that was my inspiration for this makeover. The “Country Living” wall plaque was also purchased for this project. You’ll notice I kept the angels left by the former owner of the house. They’re cute and I didn’t really want to throw them out. Doesn’t seem right to throw out an angel, huh? On the right side of the bed is the smaller lamp, and a framed picture that goes nicely with the palette. Did you notice the tray at the foot of the bed? There’s a chicken painted in the bottom of the tray and I was happy to find that while looking for items for this room makeover. The tray contains small items a guest might enjoy — lotions, mints, pen, cards (with roosters, of course). I can’t tell you how much fun I’ve had with this project. Decorating really has been torture for me but with the help of Chip It!, this has been quite fun and I’m very proud of our new guest room. All I need now are guests!
