Paint Color Party and Giveaway TODAY!!!

I'm so excited about this party, because I seriously need to do some paint color shopping for a few rooms in our house.

There are 2 ways to win the ACCUBRUSH system (the most amazing paint tool EVER in the HISTORY of paint tools!!!)

1.  Enter a link to your post with your favorite paint colors, making sure to link back to this party (this winner will receive the JUMBO accubrush set (roller, 3 refills, tray, and DVD)
2.  All of my followers will be entered as well, so if you don't have a post you can still win - or if you do have a post and are my follower you have 2 chances to win! (this winner will receive the roller, 2 refills and DVD)

MckLinky will be open all weekend, and the winners will be announced on Monday.

Here are some of my most favorite colors I've used:

Behr Pebblestone:

Behr Brushwood

Below the chair rail here is Behr's Brushwood, but above is Valspar's Swoosh

Disney's Space Dust

Restoration Hardware's Cloud

Valspar's Stonington

This is what we have currently as our main color throughout the house.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way it looks next to a crisp white.  All of our trim is just Behr plain ol' white paint with no color mixed in.  For the wall colors I always use a flat paint, and for trim a semi gloss.

In the front living room I've painted it Stonington, but the back wall has an accent wall called:

Valspar's Eiffel Tower

Valspar's Evening Eclipse:
I think this is a nice color, and I loved it while I was painting it, but it just doesn't feel right for this room, so I"ll be painting it again soon!

Sherwin William's Bittersweet Chocolate (cabinet Color)

  1. Is the first bedroom you show Behr Brushwood too? I love that color! It looks totally different from room to room though.

  2. Gorgeous colors! I love how soothing and elegant your home is!

  3. Julie B marcjulieb@yahoo.comJanuary 22, 2010 at 9:05 AM

    I LOVE your home!!!!! Your style is amazing! Calm and soothing. I especially love the nursery! You are good girl!!!!!

  4. I don't have a blog but I do follow via Google Reader. My fave color used is TRaditional Tan by Glidden.

  5. So...guess I'm headed back to Home Depot to get some more paint samples...I was just at Lowes the other night and got a sample of swoosh and dust storm...I want to try your pebblestone...I am just really struggling with picking a tan for the main area in my home. I think your home looks fantastic! And I guess I will just keep coming back to check out other's fav paint colors...great party!

  6. Ok, and I seriously want to know where all of your kid clutter is...

  7. Seriously your home is sooo gorgeous!!! I love it! You're truly an inspiration!

  8. I love this blog. We are in the process of buying our first (cough ugly cough) home and I have been searching for ideas on how to make it cute with a little budget. As for paint colors, my future living room will be Eddie Bauer Shale and Oatmeal. So perdy. Thanks for you blog!

  9. I love all your paint colors. I think my favorite is Stonington. I might have to check that one out. Thanks for the inspiration and the party.

  10. I am so glad you decided to do this! I just painted our kitchen a beautiful yellow and now I'm feeling inspired to get rid of the same neutral color that covers all our walls. I find it difficult to know what color to choose, but all the posts have definitely helped!

  11. I'm a new follower who just came home with black to paint a mirror frame.

  12. Julie marcjulieb@yahoo.comJanuary 23, 2010 at 8:25 PM

    I like your big mirror in the living room too. Where did you get it?

  13. Thanks for hosting!!! I love the idea of this party! Can't wait to jump around and see everyone else's colors! BTW - I love the Brushwood color! We almost did that instead of the Castle Path.

  14. Wow, your house looks amazing! I'm so glad I found your blog - lots of great ideas. Sure wish I'd had an Accubrush when we painted our entire house!

  15. Julie @ marcjulieb@yahoo.comJanuary 24, 2010 at 4:20 PM

    Oh, and did I tell you I really, really want the AccuBrush system :)

  16. Oops! Is it monday already? Looks like I've missed my chance... But for the record: Benjamin Moore's pumpkin pie in the living room, and millionaire red in the dining room. LOVE them.

    Also love your blog. So far I have made no-sew roman shades and the nursery bookshelves from the wooden plaques. I intend to make the photo ledges as soon as I get me a mitre saw. Great ideas, really. Glad I found you!

  17. When you painted your faux wainscotting did you paint the wall portion with semi gloss or flat?? I am trying to figure out if the bottom wall portion should be the same as the trim or not.

  18. Roller blinds

    Roller blinds are usually preferred also for their décor enhancing qualities. So, if you want to have a full control over the harsh sun heat in summer, then roller blinds may be perfect choice as a single piece of fabric full blocks the heat.

  19. Paint rollers- Delhi/India based manufacturer, importer, wholesaler, trader and supplier of paint rollers , art paint brushes, paint brushes, paint roller brushes , paint brushes and rollers and provide quality paint brushes at very cheap rate in delhi/india.

  21. Your House looks amazing it's a WOW!I love the bed and all the linens,Your room is warm, inviting and decorated so lovely.

  22. Roller blinds

    Firstly you have to remove your window blinds but it should be done very carefully so that the slats are safe. Do not use extra force to remove the blinds. Now fill bathtub or sink with lukewarm water, add one cup of detergent to water and you can also use color safe bleach for wash your windows blinds.

  23. blah you people have no help

  24. I looove your green/brown curtains in your living room.Where did you get those from? The color on your wall where the rubber mat picttures are displayed,is that brushwood?
