Finally, as many of you know, I’m a team member on the My Colortopia blog.  In partnership with Glidden, I’m excited to announce there’s a new feature over on the My Colortopia blog!  They are now showcasing Before & After photos of paint projects submitted by My Colortopia readers.  It’s your turn to share your Before and After photos and the difference color made in your home.   Time to show your colors!

The Fall Mantel party is scheduled to post at 8 a.m. PST on Tuesday September 25th, can’t wait to see what you’ve created this year!
