I love it when readers leave links to their blogs in comments, which is how I found out about this project from Gloria at A Little Paint. She commiserated with my can’t-paint-another-stroke pain by showing a room makeover she took on earlier this year. The “after” is proof that a little paint can make the biggest difference in the world.

I am so impressed by how Gloria transformed this once boring room, from the eye-catching detailing on the ceiling to the cool ombre cabinet. Though not my personal style, I still find her cozy little workspace lovely and charming. I can just imagine sewing or painting for hours and hours in there.

So the next time you’re neck deep in a home improvement project and simply can’t go on, think of of a glorious after like Gloria’s and get your DIY groove back.
