A few weeks ago a friend sent me an email that Glidden was giving away testers as part of their “Glidden Paint, Get Color, Give Color Giveaway”. Over the weekend, I received my GliddenTM Ready-to-Go Paint Testers in Spring Bluebell and Pistachio Ice Cream. The paint testers are a fab way to really see if the color is the color you really want. Anyone who’s ever painted a room in a color based on a palette sample can attest to the fact that testers are a great way to avoid painting mishaps. [Smile]

If you were one of the luck ones who managed to snag a GliddenTM Ready-to-Go Paint Tester in the promotion, congratulations. If not, head to your local Home Depot and purchase your very own.

There are many perks to having GliddenTM Ready-to-Go Paint Testers around. For example, Glidden’s paint testers have a handy-dandy brush in the lid which makes them perfect for small touch up jobs like scrapes and stains in the kids’ rooms. GliddenTM Ready-to-Go Paint Testers are portable and you don’t have to worry about storing huge, half-used gallons of paint. We’ve got a couple of those in the attic and the paint’s dried up on them to the point we can’t open them. REMINDER: Dont’ forget to dispose of those half used gallons of paint.

I signed up to receive the GliddenTM Ready-to-Go Paint Testers so I could spruce up my lemonade-colored kitchen. I haven’t completely settled on a color yet, but so far I am leaning towards the Pistachio Ice Cream as it seems to compliment my dining room set.

Glidden.com has some great tools to make it easy to find colors that compliment you. There’s the Top 10 Color Palettes and XL Paint Chips and the Room Painter. The large paint chips help you experience your favorite color in your room’s unique lighting. Plus, all of the chips have two coordinating color options right on the back. The Room Painter tool at http://bit.ly/bjLb2u lets you “paint” a wall and then click to find complimentary colors without leaving your home.
