Let's talk Paint + Enter to win $100

Can we talk paint?  As you know I'm one of the contributors for the Glidden blog, My Colortopia.  As a result I've had the opportunity to use a lot of their paint over the years.  I've always had really good experiences with it but when I wanted to paint Aggie's big girl room a stark white with a black ceiling, I wasn't sure how well it would cover.  And even more importantly I wanted a dead matte finish on the ceiling - something that wouldn't reflect every imperfection that us old homeowners know all too well.

I went with my old standby - Glidden's Duo paint + primer in one. Mostly because I'm lazy and I don't like to prime.  Well I bet you can guess by the virtual homage in this post that I absolutely love the colors and the finish.  (You can also guess that I'm still not done in here - I'm working on a mural for the left side of the room that I never seem to get around to finishing which is holding up the works.)  It covered the medium green that was in this room before (formerly our guest room) beautifully and the black is the exact shade I wanted.  So yeah!

The colors I used were Dove White and Deep Onyx, both in the Glidden Duo flat finish.

  9. We painted our half bathroom walls a black paint by Martha Stewart called Francesca, and I LOVEEEE it. I get compliments on it all the time.

    If I won the GC, we JUST renovated our great room, so I'd use it to buy paint for the room and/or piping and wood to build the custom bookcase/media unit I've been dying to build in there for years!

  34. Honestly, I would use the gift card toward tile and paint!

  35. The colors are stunning in here! The matte finish looks incredible and balances the room so nicely. Tying it in with just hints of other color truly makes this room a standout. Can't wait to see the mural! Also, LOVE the painting above the bed!!

    Oh, and I would use the gift card towards repainting my master bedroom which is presently three shades of purple and I unfortunately like NO shades of purple. Ok, maybe a few, but none of these. :-)

  46. Our new home is painted cream and Iridescent Lava, which is as beautiful as it sounds.It looks brown in some light and purple in others and it's only redeeming quality is that it makes my hair look redder somehow and I've always wanted red hair. We want to paint everything! White! Grey! Something fun! I haven't decided because we don't have the cash...
