...because home doesn't happen overnight.

*THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED.*

Congrats to Tiffany who is needing to paint her guest bedroom and kitchen table!

It’s a new year and there’s a new paint in town. {Btw, did you hear that the color of the year for 2013 is emerald? Glorious.}

c+k

Clark+Kensington is a new premium line of low VOC primer and paint in one and it’s available exclusively at Ace Hardware. The paint line is manufactured in the USA and includes 120 unique colors for interior and exterior projects. The primer + paint combo provides excellent coverage in an ultra smooth finish. Formulated with special micro-bead technology, the paint delivers a denser film than traditional paints. An attribute that I find particularly useful here in the midwest where we experience long winters…the exterior paint can be used at lower temperatures of 35°F or above. That means I can paint outside until December. Watch out.

Lucky for you, Ace Hardware is promoting their new paint line with a giveaway this week! See details below.

PRIZE: one $100 gift card to Ace Hardware. The gift card may be used to purchase any item{s} from Ace Hardware.

RULES: You must be at least 18 years old and have a U.S. shipping address {no P.O. boxes please} to enter.

TO ENTER: Leave a comment on this post proclaiming “ACE ME!”

DEADLINE: Enter before Sunday, January 6th at noon EST. One random winner will be announced Monday, January 7th.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: Since we’re talking paint…share your 2013 painting plans. Will you be giving a thrifted piece of furniture a fresh look? Are you repainting a room in your house? Any plans to create your own art? I’ll go first. I don’t know where to start. I’m definitely repainting our bedroom – and probably bathroom – this year. I also have a vintage cabinet that we use as media storage and it’s in desperate need of a makeover. And if I could paint like Meredith Pardue, I’d definitely try my hand at some DIY art.

Ace Me! I am forever repainting at our house. I would love to repaint our living room and hallways. Just finished painting our coffee table this weekend! :)

Ace me!! This year we are gearing up for a hopefully not too intensive kitchen renovation! We are going to be painting all of our cabinets white!

“ACE ME!” My goal is to paint my kitchen, bedroom, and bathroom this year. The kitchen and bathroom will be easy since both are going to be remodeled and I’m adding it in. My master bedroom is going to be the difficult one since I can’t seem to get motivated to do it. I’m very up in the air on a color choice which is what has been making it so difficult.

“ACE ME!” We’ve been in our for almost 3 years and I have only painted one room! I could really use the incentive to get more colors on all our builder-beige walls. Happy New Year!

Ace me!

My painting plans this year are huge. I am going to repaint my kitchen and dining room, hall and living room. Also my master bedroom. We are rearranging our floor plan for the kids bedrooms so you don’t have to walk through a bedroom to get to the next(why would you do that?!) so then my office and 3 bedrooms will need paint. I also have a set of lockers I would like to repaint, and if all that gets done this year I will be starting my laundry/mudroom. :) The only thing holding is back is money, my husband works in a stone quarry and NY winter = not a lot of money. :\

ACE ME! I’m planning on painting some second hand furniture and probably trying to make the basement bathroom a bit nicer with new paint & caulking, etc.

Ace Me!! I would love to paint two unused bedrooms. The colors are from the previous owners and are so hideous that we have to keep the doors closed :)

ACE ME! I’m planning to paint our 5 year old kitchen cabinets white this fall! BIG CHANGE!

reply )

02.January.2013

ACE ME! I plan to paint my kitchen base cabinets this year, and, remarkably, I’ve been trying to decide between a deep, warm grey or…wait for it…emerald green! Right now all the cabinets are a linen white, which is nice, and safe. After painting the living room teal this summer (with some encouragement from you, Dana! Thank you! It looks awesome) the kitchen is looking very bland. I have noticed that a lot of the kitchens that I’ve pinned lately have white uppers and dark lowers, so I think I will give that a try.

ACE ME! My husband and I bought a new house in October. I have 90% of it painted – with the exception of the spare bedrooms. I’ve saved those for 2013!

ACE ME! I jumped the gun too soon and painted our basement right after we bought our house. I REALLY dislike the color now and hope to paint it very soon!

02.January.2013

ACE ME! We’ve got quite a few house-y stuff to do this year. But we’re definitely going to repaint our condo. The entire north side suffered water damage and (fingers crossed) the issue is fixed. So we need to replace the drywall on the entire north side. Replacing drywall is the PERFECT excuse to choose new paint colors for all the rooms! Huzzah!

My living room and kitchen are in desperate need of repainting (it’s been almost 10 years since last painting). Now to pick fun colors that my husband won’t roll his eyes at.

Ace Me! I think I’m going to keep going with painting our old 70s dark wood trim a nice crisp white!

reply )

02.January.2013

Ace me! Hoping to repaint the exterior trim on our house. The previous owner painted it scarlet, and it’s kind of fun, but I’m thinking it’s time to return it to a more historically accurate color – maybe an olive – for a 1920s bungalow.

02.January.2013

“ACE ME!” we rent and aren’t allowed to paint,but I have a few art pieces on my list for this year

reply )

02.January.2013

Ace Me! I would love to repaint our living room and dining room one color (instead of two) so it feels like one larger space instead of two small ones.
