Glidden Diamond Givewaway {Sponsored Post}

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, Glidden asked if I would try both of their new paint offerings at the exact time when I was on a painting kick. Kismet!  I used their new Complete paint four our shore bunk beds but I needed something a little different for the mini bathroom makeover.  Enter Glidden Diamond - a paint and primer in one that promises to hold up to repeated washing and last longer in high traffic areas - which sounded like the perfect product for painting my bathroom black. I had been considering it for so long, this was just the impetus I needed to get it going.



I went with my favorite black - Deep Onyx - in flat enamel.  The coverage was good despite black being a notoriously tricky color to get uniform richness with.  I barely made a dent in the gallon to paint this little space. As it was drying, it did look a little streaky which had me concerned at first but it dried to a beautifully matte and even rich black that I could not love more.





The color totally transformed the look of the room.  A few other accessory changes and it's barely recognizable. Obviously I had expected to like the color I picked but I really can't describe how happy this little makeover makes me everytime I pass by.  Just further confirmation to go with my gut on decor decisions and not to second guess myself.

Want to test this paint for yourself?  Once again, the lovely people at Glidden have offered to giveaway up to 5 gallons of this new paint to one lucky winner.  Simply apply below and I'll pick a winner next week.

    2. No problem! The giveaway is perfect timing for me (if I win anyway) :) because we're closing on a new house in 2 weeks that needs to be repainted from top to bottom. :D

    3. I was also thinking of doing some black too, so it's good to hear that this stuff covers well, and it's such a pretty finish.

  2. I think of black as such a trendy color, but you make it look timeless! I have a bathroom at my house that could also use some TLC by way of paint.

  4. Hey there! I would help my sister paint her bathroom. We'd have to figure out a color to complement the existing blue tiles.

    Thank you!

  5. The black is so striking in photos, but I'm wondering how it feels in the room? Does it absorb too much of the light? Did you compensate with brighter bulbs?

    Planning to redo the girls' room this fall to make it more big girl and make room for a built in window seat and a loft bed for each of them. This paint sounds great for a kids room!

  44. I would paint our bonus room. It's a fun and cozy room but the builder beige is depressing! Its open and connects into a staircase and with the 10 ft ceilings (thank you builder for agreeing to bump up the ceiling... i forgive you for the beige)it would take a lot of paint!
