Fab Freebie: Behr With Me

***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***

This week’s freebie’s gonna be a colorful one. 3,700 colors to be exact, because it comes from the fine people at Behr paint. And we’ll have not one, not two, but three winners who will each get a free gallon of Behr paint along with a complimentary Behr paint fan deck. How’s that for kick starting a few of your spring makeover projects?

We all know that the hardest part of transforming a room with paint is painstakingly picking the perfect color. But Behr has gone and made it easier thanks to their new Paint Your Place tool. This free, online resource lets you virtually paint your very own rooms with a few clicks of the mouse (it’s a great way to waste an entire afternoon). For instance, we uploaded a picture of our third bedroom to see if a bright color might work when it eventually (key word) becomes a nursery (in a looong time, no baby rumors please). What do you think of Thermal Spring? Sherry thinks it makes the small room look like a little jewel box.


We were really impressed by how the program smoothly integrated the existing shadows and sun spots in the photo that we uploaded, giving the room a pretty realistic look (all without having to pick up a paint brush). Plus, with the color selector tool it was really easy to adjust the color, no matter if we decided it needed to be lighter, darker or even more green.


So if you wanna win one of these free gallons of paint, just leave a comment on this post with the words “BEHR WITH ME” by Wednesday, April 1st at 8pm EST. While you’re at it, we’d love to know if there’s a room in your home that you’ve been planning to repaint (and what color you might be considering). This contest is open to residents of the US and Canada and as usual only one entry per e-mail address is permitted. Good luck…

    “BEHR WITH ME” is exactly what i will be saying to my fiance when he finds out that i’m painting ONCE AGAIN!

    hooray for giveaways!

    BEHR WITH ME! Um, what room are we *not* planning on painting?! We moved into new construction, and all the walls are the same beige color… in flat, showing every little scuff mark. I can’t wait to get home and play with some pictures to help pick out our new wall colors. First is going to be our master bedroom, with every other room except the living room to follow. I don’t think I want to start with the vaulted ceiling room… I need to ease into this process. :) Thanks for the chance to win!

    BEHR WITH ME as I drool over this giveaway. We are currently renting a house where every wall is painted Chocolate Brown… I can’t wait to lighten the place up! YAY! – liz

    BEHR WITH ME!! I’ve been planning to paint our bedroom light blue. I think it’ll go great with all of our white furniture and our dark blue duvet cover!

    Behr with me while I tell you that I LOVE the color scheme at the Petersik Residence. I have been wanting to paint the dining/living rm areas and your home is a great inspiration…I especially love the color in your kitchen.

    We moved this year, and the baby has taken affront to the living room wall paper (rightly so) and has removed a large portion of it (if only she could work a scraper) — so I’ll be painting that rooms soon (by soon, I mean two months from now)!

    Behr with me. This is just perfect for us to start decorating the nursery! Due in Oct and I can’t wait.

    Just came across your blog and love it. I am a former interior designer who is now in Nursing School, so I am always looking for fun ways to procrastinate and design blogs are the best!

  9. Courtney says

    “BEHR WITH ME” every room in our house except 3 needs to be painted. considering its 1800 sq ft, that is a lot of painting!

  10. Denise M. says


    I have so so many rooms to paint. I just painted two this weekend, the dining room a mid-tone blue and the sunroom a greyish navy color.

    I have YET to do the guest bedroom in red. Specifically, we’re doing “velvety merlot” (a behr color!)

    But I have yet to do my office. If I win, this is what I would paint! (Although I’m still not sure on the color, so that paint chip deck sure would come in handy as well).

    We are expecting our first baby and plan on converting our extra “half bedroom” (now filled with misc storage) into a nursery. Since we’re in a small NYC apt, we’re looking for something bright and sunny to perk the room up. Would love some Behr paint to get started!
