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!

Trying On Paint Colors

Friday, January 11th, 2013

I’m constantly getting the itch to try out new paint colors around my house.  Painting really is the quickest and most affordable way to give a space an entirely new feel with just a few hours of work.  Now there’s a way to do it digitally and without committing to a purchase, that is until you find the perfect color. 

As part of the My Colortopia team, I was asked to share some of Glidden’s online tools for anyone who has been bitten by the “this space needs a new coat of paint” bug, which is a common occurrence in my house!  There’s a tool called Color My Room which allows you to upload any image of any of your own spaces, or use theeir room galleries to try paint on in a room. 

First use the My Image Inspiration tool which will suggest paint colors based on any image you upload, then store them in your own personal Project Folder.

Next, use the Color My Room tool with one of your own images or choose one from their galleries and start outlining where you want to paint, like I did below. So let’s say you’re totally over your beige living room.  You need something deeper, moodier, more dramatic – time to try on some paint ! 

Go to the Color My Room tool and upload an image of your own space or play with one of the images in their gallery like I am.  Use the outline tool to indicate where you’ll be painting and where you won’t be painting.

Then add the colors you’ve selected previously from your Project Folder.
