Jen’s Favorite Paint Projects!


Hi there! I’m Jen — the third CSI girl!

I am a mom of four —  a shy, Diet Coke drinking, stay up too late, love sleeping in, chips and salsa eating, creative type of girl. I love trying new things and making new friends. Over at my blog, Tatertots & Jello I love making crafts, decorating and hosting fun giveaways.

I am so excited about this new CSI project!

It is going to be such a fun way to meet new people and show off YOUR ideas!

Since our first challenge is paint, I thought I would share some of my favorite painting projects!

This was my living room before:

And, after:

This was my daughter’s room when we moved in:

And this is her room now:

Our kitchen and barstools before:

And after:

I turned our formal living room:

Into my craft room — I love that green paint!

My daughter Ella’s room before:

After a little paint:

Our family room before paint:

And after:

I added a chalkboard in my kitchen:

And spiffed up my garage with a little bit of paint:

Ok, I can’t wait to see YOUR Paint projects!

Thanks for coming by!!

  1. I love your daughter’s green room! And I love that you used the same shelf, and just added a coat of paint! It looks completely different. Is that wallpaper behind the shelf?

  2. Wow…such a huge difference in all the rooms!

  3. LOVE your home, absolutely beautiful!!

  4. How amazing are those pics!!!! I love the chalkboard, its ingenious. they are all such beautiful drastic changes, I cant wait to have a house of my own so I can do whatever I want to it!

  5. Wow Jen! I guess it’s been awhile since I’ve seen pics of your home. I’ve fallen in love all over again. Love that color in the living room! 🙂

  6. I’m a new follower. Thanks for the paint inspiration. I moved recently and I think thinking about paint ideas will really help give this place a nice facelift!

  7. AMAZING work… I love Ella’s room!

  8. I have a quick question. I am working on a project (that involves paint) that I was going to submit in your first contest. Then I saw that the next week contest involves hardware store and my project may fit into that catagory. Is there anyway you can tell me more of what you are looking for in the hardware department so I can decide which one I would want to submit this project in. Thanks so much. So for being a trouble maker so soon in the game.
