If you remember from my post a few days ago (check it out here) I told you all about how Valspar was giving out free paint samples. Well, when my paint came in the mail, I couldn't wait to get started! It comes with 7.2 oz of your choice of paint, two mini rollers, 2 mini trays, the paint chip and corresponding color chips, as well as a coupon for $5 off a gallon of Valspar paint. Talk about a deal! If you haven't requested your free sample yet...make sure you head over to Facebook and sign up!
Here's what I got in the mail:
Well, after finishing painting a 2 shelf bookcase a couple weeks ago (all with one 7 oz. paint sample) I decided to give it another try. When I went back to the store, unfortunately they were out of the 2 shelf bookcases. Shucks! Oh well, I decided to upgrade to 4 shelves! I grabbed two matching bookcases, and was ready to go!
This time, since I had a bigger surface to work with, I decided to give a stencil a try. After perusing around blog land for a while, I found a cute quatrefoil printout over at Tatertots and Jello. How thoughtful of her to offer a free printout! I'll be revealing my completed bookcase tomorrow, but in the meantime, check out how I made my stencil!
All I used was the print out, a blank transparency sheet, some tape, and scissors.
