Time to Paint

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Glidden. All opinions are 100% mine.

Jeffrey keeps saying that we need to paint our house. When we built it, we painted all the walls white, and I've been perfectly happy with white walls.  However, it's been more than 10 years, and the walls could use a fresh coat of paint.  While we're at it, we're thinking we should add some color, instead of just going with the white.

Picking out the white was hard enough. You'd never think that picking a white paint would be hard, but there are a whole lot of whites.  I'm afraid picking out the right color is going to be even harder.  I'm really hoping the Room Painter at Glidden.com will be a big help.  Check it out, it's really cool.  They give you three easy ways to pick a color and then let you 'paint' a room to see how it looks.  Glidden even suggests some nice coordinating colors once  you pick a main color.

Still, it's hard to know what it will look like until you actually put some paint on the walls.  That's why Glidden offers Paint Testers.  They're unique little jars of paint with a brush in the lid.  Each tester has enough paint to cover three square feet, so you can get a really good idea what the color will look like on your walls before buying all those big cans of paint.  I have a hard time picturing things I can't actually see, so I think these will be perfect for me.

I signed up for the Get Color, Give Color giveaway on June 1st - so I will be getting two free testers to try out.  I hope we like at least one of the colors. The giveaway has ended now, so if you weren't lucky enough to get your free testers, you can always get them at your local Home Depot store.  Or, if we don't like the colors I picked online, we can get more at Home Depot.  They have paint testers in every color, XL color chips with coordinating color ideas, pictures for inspiration, and of course quality Glidden paint for the entire project.

I'm kind of getting excited about the whole painting thing now.  Of course, my part is just helping to pick the colors and make decisions about what goes where.  Someone else is going to have to do the actual painting, because I won't be able to handle the paint fumes.  Glidden paint is supposed to last for years and be easy to clean, so at least we won't have to paint again for a long time - unless we want to try some different colors.

  1. WE like color on our walls. We had old gold on our walls that matched with the furniture pattern at the last place and will have something similar this time. Our house before that we had denim blue walls in the bedroom and cream in the other rooms.


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
