This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Glidden. All opinions are 100% mine.
Over the years of marriage and home ownership, as well as renting, one thing my husband and I know about is painting. We've spent quite a few weekends painting our rooms, everything from super calm earthy colors to some extremely bright make-ya-want-shades-in-the-house colors. I've hand painted murals on walls as well as super fun borders. When it comes to painting, we go big or go home. We love to do it and we definitely have fun.
Speaking of painting, when it comes to purchasing paint, Glidden is who we go to. I'm not kidding. I'm not saying that because I was paid to write this post. I'm saying it because I just love Glidden paint. They have great colors, many to choose from and some amazing Ready-to-Go paint testers that you can use when looking to paint your space.
Like I said, if you're wanting to test out a few different colors you can test drive their products with Glidden™ Ready-To-Go Paint Testers. They're having a contest that started at midnight on June 1st, 2010 to give away Paint Testers. If you're not fortunate to snag one of these testers, you can always find Glidden's paint testers at any Home Depot location that are very inexpensive. They're unique from other brands because they include a super handly little brush that allows you to try it out without having to buy even more products. They're also great for families with kids or in our case, a husband who isn't gentle when moving household furniture. We always seem to have knicked corners, scratched walls or marks that can't be covered up. Glidden's testers can be used to touch up those spots without having to purchase a whole can that probably won't be used. It's less to store and you don't have to worry about moving around large messy cans in order to touch up a 1/2 inch scratch on the wall.
I also love Glidden because they have amazing ideas with Gliddens Top 10 Color Palettes and XL paint chips. Their color palettes are assembled by experts and are great ways to express your personality. It's a very easy way to choose the perfect combination of colors. They're large paint chips are also great to help you experience your color of choice in your rooms lighting and they also have two coordinating colors right on the back. They couldn't make it easier, really!
One of my favorite things is the Glidden Room Painter. You can find this, here. I love looking at my favorite colors and seeing what they would look like in a room. Like this, I would love to have a playroom like this for my son.
