Giveaway: GLIDDEN DIAMOND PAINT

I've been meaning to give this vintage chair that I scored at a second-hand store a much needed makeover. But honestly, I haven't found the time to actually getting around to doing it. It was until the folks at Glidden recently asked me to give their new Glidden Diamond™ Paint a try that I saw the light and decided to finally give this treasure the TLC it really deserved. 

I decided to paint the chair a color similar to its original color so I went for their Universal Grey. Since it was showing some wear and tear, I was hoping this new paint will outdo itself on its excellent hide and coverage features. And let me tell you it certainly lived up to its expectations. It only took a couple of coats for the chair to look brand new. Besides, it's paint + primer combo also made the project go super fast. 

But don't take my word for granted. You can give Glidden Diamond™ a test drive since my friends at Glidden are sponsoring this giveaway and are offering up to 5 gallons of Glidden Diamond™ to a lucky winner. C'mon give it a try and enter below. Unfortunately, only US residents can participate.

THE MAGIC OF PAINT

As a DIY'elfer I'm always in the lookout for new products that will make my projects go smoothly and get the best results possible. For me, a good quality paint is key for achieving those goals. One of my favorite hobbies is transforming old pieces of furniture and giving them a modern look without compromising their original charm. I'm glad to have been introduced to Glidden® Trim, Door & Furniture Paint and its amazing lacquer-like finish that leaves anything that touches looking shiny and new. This oil-base paint is so rich and thick that it practically erases any minor imperfections my newfound treasures might have. And the best part: I never see any brush marks or drips while or after applying it.

I used this awesome paint to revive this old desk and on to create an side table for my outdoor living space. As you can see the finish on both pieces is flawlessly beautiful and smooth with an extra high gloss sheen I simply love. Trust me, this paint is like butter!
