Fab Freebie: (Anything But) A White Christmas

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

We often daydream about having the iconic white Christmas here in Virginia (which is extremely rare in these parts) but after this weekend’s crazy snowstorm it looks like we might actually have one. Or at least a whatever-color-you-call-half-melted-dirty-snow-that-hangs-around-for-a-week Christmas.

But as of today we think you’ll be dreaming of a holiday with a bit more color thanks to Glidden. So yes, as Sunny, Lacey, Travis and Nicole guessed at the end of last week’s giveaway, this week’s prize of “one of our all time favorite items” is indeed paint. In fact, Glidden’s got a gallon for a handful of you in your choice of color and finish so there’s plenty to go around.

And if we haven’t already made it abundantly clear in over two years of blogging: we love Glidden’s colors. From Gentle Tide in our bedroom and kitchen to Sand White in our living room and guest bedroom, we’ve got Glidden’s fantastic hues on almost every wall of our house. And even though we’re sad that some of those colors didn’t make the cut when Glidden revamped their line earlier this year, we totally dig how user-friendly the new lineup of colors are (they even suggest complementary accent hues on the back of each paint swatch). Plus you can easily browse inspiration rooms and coordinating color schemes both in-store and on their web site and they offer tester bottles with built-in brushes for every color. It doesn’t get much more convenient that that.

But enough jabbering. It’s time for the entry details:

  • PRIZE: Each winner will receive a voucher to be redeemed at their neighborhood Home Depot for one gallon of Glidden paint in any color and finish of their choice.
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “CAN ME” and…
  • BONUS QUESTION: …tell us what colors are getting you into the holiday spirit this season. Is it the traditional red and green pairing? Unconventional schemes like lavender and silver? Or do you really just have your heart set on that white Christmas concept?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, December 23rd at 8pm EST
  • PRIZE SHIPS: United States only
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winners will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday. Good luck!

    CAN ME!!! We are painting our new place now and a deep red is what is getting us into the holiday spirit. But I love Silver!

    CAN ME … this Christmas I’m loving this combo: green, white, silver and gold. I haven’t used any red this year and really loving the fresh look of it.

    “CAN ME”
    This year I was inspired with silver, gold and white in my holiday decorating upstairs. And I then inspiration struck with red and white in our rustic basement. But what I’m really dreaming of is a white Christmas!

    CAN ME!

    I can’t really say a particular color that’s been inspiring me this Christmas – but it’s more a theme – natural materials for every bit of our Christmas decor. I am loving all the natural materials being used for ornaments and garland, so I’ve been using a lot of that. And vintage-inspired ornaments. I’ve gotten a couple very cute 50’s looking ornaments for the tree.

    Oh, and your house looks FANTASTIC draped in all that snow!

    Can Me!!!

    Our holiday colors this year are a little different…pink, blue, and green! While this is not what I would have picked, I decided to let our 3 year old daughter pick out all new ornaments and decorations this year. She loves it, and thats all that matters to me!

    CAN ME!!!

    I have a young son, so we tend to stick to pretty traditional decor (red and green) because it mixes in nicely with his homemade stuff!

  7. Liz M says

    CAN ME (please!).

    I love winter white everywhere, with some silver and green thrown in. Our tree, though, is a total hodgepodge of color!

  8. says

    Can Me!!!

    I can’t get enough of silver, white, then throw in some shimmery blues. I think it has something to do with never seeing any white on Christmas, living in Florida and all. Heck, we’re lucky if it’s below 60 most years!

    CAN ME!!!
    I have always loved Blue and Silver for holiday colors. I have a mini Christmas tree with blue and silver balls, and of course the random ornaments from crafts at day care.
