Fab Freebie: Color Combo

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

This week’s giveaway sponsor practically needs no introduction. It’s Valspar Paint (which Meredith successfully figured out last week from our anagram clue). They’re giving away FIVE gallons of their high quality, Ultra Premium interior paint (one each to FIVE of our lucky readers). So we foresee a handful of paint projects in some of your futures… and hopefully some before & after pictures as well.

But Valspar isn’t just offering up paint this week, they’ve also created a great online resource for couples faced with the challenge of combining their styles. The “Love, Our Style” site includes some painting tips via a Painting 101 section, a photo contest where you can win a paint makeover, and – our favorite part – a quiz to help figure out how to merge your aesthetic with your partner’s.

And although Sherry and I feel like we’ve figured out our combined style pretty well, we jumped at the chance to see how we fared with the quiz. After 10 simple (and sometimes thought-provoking) multiple choice questions, the quiz revealed that our style is “Relaxed” which came with this description: “You’re in perfect harmony when it comes to your eye for the simple yet functional. When it comes to your home decor, eco-conscious style- like natural textures, tones and sustainable furnishings- can play a big part. Take your love of the outdoors and find inspiration in nature, with warm neutrals.” Pretty dead on, eh? Not to mention that the paint colors they suggested are pretty much right up our alley too.

So here’s the scoop on how you can score some free Valspar paint this week:

  • PRIZE: One gallon of Valspar Ultra Premium interior paint in the color/finish of your choice
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “COLOR ME” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: Head over to take the “Love, Our Style” quiz and share your results (and how accurate you think it is)
  • CONTEST CLOSES: Wednesday, September 16th at 8pm EST
  • PRIZE SHIPS: United States only
  • THE USUAL: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winners will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday. Good luck!

    COLOR ME!!!

    I tried to take the quiz but didn’t have the appropriate flash version. Then I tried to install the correct one, and had administrative issues??? (I am at work, and I guess should not be installing random flash software on my computer! ooops!)

    Color me, Cupid!

    If only this had come at the beginning of summer! I’m just finishing up my summer/fall painting project with 5+ gallons of paint and nearly twice as much primer.

    Can’t take the quiz now, but I’ll be sure to later!

    “Color Me”
    Wow i’ve never been number 1 before!!!
    I didn’t do the color quiz as I have no one to do it with. I’m single but I do own my own house. I would love the paint to work with :)

    COLOR ME! Took the quiz on behalf of myself and my husband – and got the same results as you. He and I are so polar opposite when it comes to style, apparently “relaxed” is the only one that even remotely fits for us. Oh well, works for me!
