Projects in the Making, and a GIVE AWAY!!!!

I'm not gonna lie, it makes me cringe to look at this picture.  What a mess!  Really it isn't, everything is out for a reason.  I have projects to do, and well you can't do a project and not make a little mess.  I'm dealing with it as best I can.  

You can see I have projects on the counters and floor, and even some errands stacked on one counter.  I have to run to the post office tomorrow, so I figured why hide the mail?  See the bag on the counter?  That is Mr. Type A's Valentine Gift!  Doh, sorry Beefcake, LOVE YOU.

I just want to say, in the next house I will have a mud room, but my reality is this little corner by the back  door.  However, the picture was more to show off the Rooster door stop.

I love this little guy and for $10 what's not to love.  It's cast iron, and I got it and Cost Plus World Market.  I may of even giggled when I saw the price. 

Little close up of the disaster living on my counters.  Starting on the left, we have a faux Roman shade in the works.  In the middle is my taxes I'm bringing to the accountant.  Winners of the barn photography give away, the proof that I'm going to mail your art is on the right, along with Beefcake's candy.  Every thing on the lower counter is all the goodies I bought at Sherwin Williams tonight.  I think I have a crush on them, but more on that in a few.

Close up of the faux Roman shade fabric, matches the pillow covers I made for the couch.  I bought it from this awesome Etsian, Kittredge Mercantile.  Great price, and the fastest shipping ever!  Plus she's super friendly.  Check her out if you want some vintage ticking type fabric.

Okay so on to my Sherwin Williams crush.  I bought two sample paints to paint the boards on the kitchen floor.  Yep you caught me, I'm gonna try my hand at kitchen signs.  (wish me luck)  The samples are 4 times bigger than the ones at Orange or Blue, and they have lids that screw on/off!  Genius.  $5.50 each, they will complete these signs and more.

Check this out, they sell paint decks!!!!  Orange sells theirs for $20-40 each, and Blue sells theirs for roughly the same.  Blue does sell some smaller ones for $5, but they only have like 50 samples in them.  Sherwin Williams has 1000 sample colors and its $10!!!  I'm over the moon!

See, proof.  Best part!  I got one for you too!  Yep, one lucky winner will get a paint deck all their own!!!!!

Check this out, sanding blocks that bend!  They are sold at SW too, and they are only 99 cents each!  They come in 60, 80, 100, and 150 grit.  Great for those hard to reach spaces.  I swear I don't live under a rock, but I really feel like other blogs were holding out on me about the awesomeness of Sherwin Williams.

Here's a picture of it not bent.  They are an awesome deal, I'll try in out on the dresser project I'm getting ready to tackle and let you know what I really think.

I have that paint deck too (it's even in my blog header).... isn't Sherwin Williams the best?!

Holly Austin said...

I had no idea SW had sanding blocks for $.99 - I just paid $4 for one at Blue!!! Fingers crossed that I'll win the paint deck :)

I LOVE Sherman Williams too. Don't enter me in the contest because I already have a paint swatch fan, but believe me SW is the best. I went these last summer to get advice on painting my dining table and they helped so much. They also were super nice and helpful when we had to buy paint for the whole house in August. Oh, and, if you get on their mailing list they send you discounts all the time for their paint. Score!!
