Greetings! It’s Friday! Have any projects around the house you’ll be working on this weekend? Any painting projects? If so, I have a little sumpin’, sumpin’ to get you inspired and raring to go!
In March, I shared about an exciting new site by Glidden called My Colortopia.
My Colortopia was especially designed to help us DIYers when we’re agonizing over finding the right paint color for a space. Haven’t we all been there!
A few weeks later, I shared another wonderful tool called My Image Inspiration, a nifty tool that will let you isolate a color from something you love, then selects paint options that are very close to the color you chose. You may remember I highlighted some of the colors I love in this painting in my family room and found some paint colors, as a result.
Show Your Colors:
Glidden is at it again! They know how hard it can be to imagine what a room can become…how it can look when transformed with a fresh new coat of paint. A whole new section has been added to My Colortopia called Show Your Colors. Show Your Colors is a place where you can view some amazing “Before and Afters” that have been beautifully transformed. We all know, if there’s one thing that can transform a room from drab to fab quickly and inexpensively, it’s paint.
When you visit Show Your Colors, you can add your own Before and After pics to share, as well!
I added the “Before and After” pics of my recent office renovation. Remember the baseball themed wallpaper that was such a bear to remove?
After: There was a lot of stripping of wallpaper, wall damage repair and painting involved to get to this “After” but it was worth it in the end.
A Surprise Photo!
I have another transformation to share that I’ve never shown here on BNOTP! Recently I came across this old photo tucked away in a drawer. Do you recognize this room?
I’m so glad I have at least one photo to remember when my dining room had wallpaper. I loved this wallpaper but it was so busy the mirror and chandelier just disappeared in all the pattern.
After: I decided to paint the room a bold color to give the mirror and chandelier some breathing room. What a difference! (Tablescape can be viewed here: Thanksgiving Table Setting with a Nature Themed Tiered Centerpiece)
Doesn’t even look like the same room, does it? The only thing changed was the wall treatment with a fresh coat of paint. Well, that and the tablescape. (Tablescape can be viewed here: Thanksgiving Tablescape with Spode Woodland
Here’s a side by side comparison:
