Today we’re talking paint colors. What are your thoughts? Are you one of those people who walks into a store, flies by the seat of their pants, picks up the first paint swatch that catches your eye, and then ends up loving it just as much once it’s on the wall?
Are you the type that goes driving across town, hitting up all the paint stores, collecting a billion swatches, paying for multiple small samples of paint, stressing out and dreaming about if you should go one shade lighter or one shade darker?
Well… we’re somewhere in the middle.
Sometimes we feel like taking a complete risk by picking out a color based on how pretty we think that tiny little swatch in the store is, and other times, we do so much research about a color that we feel like our heads are going to explode.
That being said… we LOVE to paint!
Don’t get me wrong, the clean up is a major pain, but the actual smell (as weird as it sounds) and process of painting a wall/room/space a brand new happy color, just makes my heart go pitter-patter
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again (for the hundredth time)… paint is THE BEST way to change and freshen up your space. For usually under $30 a gallon, you can take a dark room to a bright happy oasis in no time flat.
Because I’m so passionate about always finding the RIGHT paint color for our space, without having to do a ton of guessing as to what the finished product will look like, I’ve decided to share another great painting tool from Glidden called Show Your Colors, by My Colortopia.com
The new Show Your Colors feature lets homeowners submit their before and after photos from spaces they’ve redone in their own home, to share with others! I love this idea, because first, who doesn’t LOVE before and afters?… and second, I kind of have an issue with taking a peek into the lives/homes of other people, to see how they live/decorate.
(admit it, you love to do the same. ha!)
It simple, all you have to do is head over to the Show Your Colors page at My Colortopia.com, fill out a quick form about your before and after entry, upload a couple of pictures… and you’re done!
You can put your mouse over an area of any uploaded pictures and snag paint color ideas, or just simply brows the awesome before and afters for ideas to implement in your next room makeover. Either way, it’s a pretty great tool to try out and get inspired by.
