Give-away: Olympic Paint!

Since I’m getting to the very close stage of finally being finished with my professional site my weekends have been spent finishing many home projects to finally get my rooms camera ready!


I know I’m not the only one up to my ears in home projects so with the help of my pals over at Olympic Paint that is available at Lowes I will be giving away lots of paint!


To be exact HHFITD will be giving away 2 gallons of your pick of Olympic Paint in any finish.



Now the key to successful painting is in the prep work before and that means priming the walls first! So, part of this give-away is also 1  gallon of Olympic zero VOC primer!

 Olympic Gallon Interior Premium Zero VOC Primer


One lucky reader will win all 3 gallons!

Here is what you need to do to enter:


- Make sure you are a HHFITD follower.

- Go onto to Olympic and pick out what paint color you would want.

-Come back here and leave a comment and let me know what your pick is.


- If you want to enter twice then make sure to give this give-away a shout on your blog.

-Want to enter three times then make sure you also tweet about it!


* Remember anyone can enter! Just make sure if you don’t have a blog to add your email address in your comment.


This give-away is open until Sunday, March 7th midnight EST.

Such a great giveaway! We're in the process of buying our first home so winning this would really benefit us as we have some rooms that need painting! Every little bit helps when you're planning a wedding and buying a house :) I went to the site and played around with it. We like the pretty blue color, B55-2! Would look great in our new bedroom!

I'm already a follower :)

I have a master bedroom to paint (which has been on the "to-do" list for 5 years, 2 bathrooms and 1 laundry room. My home colors are all in the blue/green family with some browns & creams. I'm stuck on the new paint colors though. I've never had this problem but I can't decide. I know it will be something in the blue or green family but I'm also really liking silver/grays. Ugh...I don't know but 3 gallons of something would be amazing!

After a horrific wallpaper removal in the guest bath that revealed unfinished walls (which will be covered up by beadboard), we could use a happy break. I think Twinberry Blossom would be a lush color with the beadboarding!

I wish I had a blog to post this on, but I don't. I do love your blog and tell EVERYONE about it! We just recently finished putting up dry wall in every room of our house, after discovering poorly maintained walls underneath 5-7 layers of wallpaper in each room. Many months later we are finally ready to paint! I think a great green like Leap Frog would really add something special to our kitchen. Thanks!
