Dark Dungeon to Daylit Den

My Living Room Makeover for The Home Depot Orange Tank Competition

This post was sponsored by The Home Depot

With the help of the Home Depot I was able to completely transform my dark living room into an amazing and bright space!

Every year, the Haven Conference for bloggers and DIYers is held in Atlanta and The Home Depot hosts a competition called Orange Tank. This is an amazing competition that gives smaller bloggers (like myself) the opportunity to pitch a project idea to The Home Depot (definitely a dream brand partnership).

After becoming a finalist two years in a row, I was selected as a winner this year for my living room!

The components for this project are the stairs, the fireplace, and the TV console. Each of these projects would have a big impact on the space and would be packed with a bunch of mini diys.

For this project, I used some of the helpful tools and features within The Home Depot’s App. The Home Depot Shopping Lists are a tool that I use on their app to track what I need for each project. I love being able to save decor or tools to a specific list. When I’m ready to start that part of my renovation, I have all the pieces ready to purchase right there!

Before starting on any one project component, I wanted to focus on ways to turn this dark room into a daylit oasis and the fastest way to do that is to paint these dark walls white! 

The Home Depot has a ton of amazing project guides. My dark paneling needed to be lightened and The Home Depot’s website had all the tips that I needed to learn to paint paneling.
