There’s this contest, see. Five Canadian bloggers will be chosen by Para Paints to be part of their Blog Crew. Said bloggers will receive a year’s supply of paint with which to work their magic.
Holy creativity, Batman!
What would you do with a year’s supply of paint? What projects would you tackle? What spaces would you make more beautiful? More you?
Oh the possibilities!
Here are just a few things we’d slap some paint on if someone just happened to give us, say, oh 15 gallons of paint…give or take.
If you’ve followed us on Pinterest for long, you’ll know we’ve been pinning pantries like a mad couple. And not just your run of the mill wall of cupboards – full on walk-in pantries. Well, there’s a reason for that, a method to our madness if you will: Dean and I have secretly been planning a walk-in pantry! Where you ask, in our little bungalow, are we going to put that? Ah, that is still a secret! But a new pantry needs new paint, yes? Potential colour: Para Paints Sarah Richardson Linen. Shelving shown: Home Depot
A new walk-in pantry, deserves a fabulous pantry door, don’t you think? A vintage door with a window perhaps. Or a new door painted in a gorgeous colour. And definitely some rustic bronze hardware. Mmm. Potential colour: Para Paints Sarah Richardson Ocean Liner. Glass knob and hardware shown: House of Antique Hardware.
True Story: two very different little girls share the same room. Two years ago they were thrilled with pink and green and cute. Fast forward to today and they’re two years older, two years closer to becoming teenagers. Time for a change. Still pink, but a bit more sophisticated. Potential colours: Para Paints Sarah Richardson Shoreline & Peppercorn. Bed Linens shown: Bouclair
Our master bedroom closet needs doors – ’cause open storage is only good for some things (no one needs to be privy to our folded unmentionables)! Since we want to keep a lot of character in our smallish room, we’re scheming up some barn style sliding doors. Much like the ones in our son’s room. Only lighter and brighter. Potential colour: Para Paints Sarah Richardson Seagrass.
I bet we could probably paint a whole assortment of other projects big and small that we haven’t even thought of yet!
Okay, we shared what we’d paint. Now tell us what you’d paint. You know, should the paint fairies drop gallons of paint on your doorstep. How many projects have you got floating around in your brain? What else do you think WE should paint?
