Ace Hardware has proved free paint samples. I was also compensated for my time and this blog post. All opinions and positions expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Ace Hardware.
I have never been the craftiest of gals. My track record is littered with dozens of well intentioned projects abandoned, when I inevitably realized that I was in over my head. That being said the project I am sharing with y'all today is so simple, even I couldn't mess it up!
I stared with a fairly neutral color scheme in my apartment, and lately I have been trying to add a few vibrant pops of color to punch it up a bit. I immediately fell in love with the richness of this Adobe Dusk color from Ace's Paint Studio, and though it would be a great shad to paint for a container to hold my collection of perfume samples ( random I know - but I am a complete fragrance addict).
Step One - Gather Materials (Brown Paper Bag, Container, Paint)
First I put down the brown paper bag - this will protect from any spills especially during the drying process. Then I decided to re-purpose the glass container form my VDay flower arrangement for my container.
Step Two - Pour Paint Into Container
I tried to coat the bottom as much as I could, without going overboard so the paint isn't too thick.
Step Three - Distribute the Paint
I basically turned the bowl in my hands several times until the paint had coated the majority of the container. Just make sure that the bottom and about 50% of the way up on the sides is covered.
Step Four - Flip the Container
In order to coat the top portion of the sides without leaving any streaks, I placed the container upside down on the brown paper sack.This project is a waiting game now - I suggest leaving the container over night to dry & check in the morning.
Voila! Didn't I tell you that was going to be easy?! I think all said and done it was only about 15-20 minutes of actual work and the rest of the time was just waiting for it to dry. Sound off in the comments - what do you think of my DIY?
Going to The Paint Studio at Ace is like going to your neighbor.
