True Value Blog Squad – 2010!

Last year, True Value invited us to be on their national “DIY Blog Squad” and we were beyond shocked and pumped. I don’t know how they found us, but boy were we glad they did! With their help we were able to get a new mailbox…

fix up an old bathroom door…

And we even figured out how to tile a wall in our (half-done!) guest bathroom…

(Note: Click on the photos above if you’d like to read about those projects!)


Well, they’ve invited us to be a part of the Blog Squad again this year, and you can bet yer bottom dollar we’ll be focusing on our master bedroom this time around!

We’ll definitely be loading up on lots of this stuff…

We’re leaning towards a pretty shade of blue, and a mellow shade of white for the walls.

Here’s my inspiration…

And if you follow us on Twitter, you’ve already seen the sweet little $40 dresser we’re going to make over…

Luckily, because the lady who owns our local True Value loves ALL things home, they carry a huge selection of decorative knobs and pulls…

We can’t wait to finally be able to open those drawers without having to use MacGyver maneuvers!


We also look forward to seeing the projects our fellow Blog Squad members work on too…
