Remember a few weeks ago when the blog world went nuts over Glidden's free paint offer? Well, yesterday my free quart of Fresh Guacamole arrived! I'm super excited because I can finally paint the bench in our entrance.
As soon as you walk in the door, you are greeted by this storage bench. Now, the mauve pink sponge painted look was ultra cool when I was in middle school and this bench lived under my bedroom window, but I've been itching to give it a good paint makeover ever since the bench came to live in the roost. The Glidden giveaway gave me the perfect opportunity to not only paint this cutie, but also dip my brush in a color other than white!
Of course one thing leads to another, and I haven't been overjoyed at the thought of sanding through several layers of textured paint. Brad (pretty easily) convinced me that we needed a new toy to help with this job, so we picked up a Black and Decker orbital sander last night, as well as a can of primer.
Hopefully, this little project will be done over the weekend! Has anyone else received their free paint yet? If so, what are your plans?
