Glidden Paint Giveaway

Monday, August 10th, 2015

Hello everyone! How was your weekend? Relaxing I hope! I spent mine visiting some friends I haven’t seen in a while, also painting a dresser and working on some new fall fabric patterns, I’ll share both in the coming weeks.

As you know I’ve written for Glidden’s My Colortopia blog for several years, also I’ve used their paint on so many occasions. Several of the rooms in my home have Glidden paint on the walls: Touch of Grey in the guest room, Jade Frost in my daughter’s room, and my favorite go to grey that works everywhere: Oyster Bay which I used in the study and the recent shelter family room.

Today Glidden asked me to spotlight the product I use most and that’s their DUO Primer + Paint formula for ceilings and walls. I follow the standard formula for sheen, flat on the ceiling and eggshell (or satin) on the walls, semi gloss in kitchens and bathrooms.

I’ve used Glidden colors in most of the spaces in the Las Vegas fixer too, such as Quiet Light in the master bedroom and European White in the guest room. The entire downstairs is coated with White on White which is a fresh pure white. Since we retextured the walls we were grateful that the formula contained primer which saved a step, the product will cover in a single coat if your color change is subtle, although two coats is recommended for more dramatic color changes.

Glidden has been so kind to donate paint to the many charity projects I’ve completed over the years. I featured their Soft Meadow in the shelter kitchen and Sand White in the playroom. You’ll also see Glidden’s Chelsea Fog in the recent bathroom remodel at grandma’s house.

Today Glidden is offering three lucky winners a $100 gift card to purchase Glidden paint, enter via the Rafflecopter widget below!

Bone Inlay Inspired Dresser {Featured in HGTV Mag}

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Greetings all! This week we’re off on a family vacay in Kauai so this week will be light on posts, but I do have a few scheduled. Today I wanted to share a DIY project I completed as part of a painting challenge for Glidden for HGTV Magazine.

I mentioned last year how much I wanted to try this project and when I was asked by the Glidden team to come up with a something creative, this bone inlay inspired dresser came to mind. I borrowed accessories from the guest room and family room to style it up for the magazine, here is the piece that is featured inside the cover.

You’ll find the feature alongside fellow My Colortopia contributors Nicole and Eduardo, we each shared an inspirational idea completed with paint from Glidden’s line and they’re included inside a peel back wrapped cover in the June issue.

The process was simple but time consuming! I started with the $99 IKEA Koppang chest and a Nagoya stencil from Cutting Edge Stencils. The color on the chest is Glidden’s “Rich Navy” and partnered with handcarved knobs from Anthropologie. koppang chest to inlay lookalike
