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!

Blue + White Sunroom

*This post in partnership with Smith & Noble window treatments.

This is my most favorite room in the Las Vegas house because of its abundant natural light, high sloped ceiling, and arched entry. This space was originally designed as a formal dining room but currently I am using as a more casual sitting room or sunroom.

I have future plans to add built ins on the far wall and swap the table for a larger desk so that it can function as a home office for future tenants/renters, but today it’s lovely just as it is, filled with a few thrift store finds, some accessories, and beautiful new window treatments from Smith & Noble.

This room sat empty for the longest time, acting as a storage space but I decided it was time to make it a more welcoming place to sit and relax with morning coffee or afternoon tea and a stack of magazines or a laptop.

Here is a reminder of what the space was like when we bought the house, since then we’ve changed the flooring to tile and freshened with paint and swapped out the light fixture. I think you’ll agree the window treatments are much improved!

I’ve partnered with Smith & Noble before because their window treatments are such high quality (their plantation shutters are so well made, I’ve also featured their unique wave fold drapery for a sliding door.)

Today is a third feature and one of my favorite kinds of window treatments, the layered woven shade + decorative panel combo which works in just about any space you can imagine from bedrooms to dining rooms.
