My BIGGEST Giveaway Ever! Enough Paint to Start a Business!
I am packing and frantically trying to get organized to get on a plane to Atlanta tomorrow morning for the Haven 2012 Blogging & DIY Conference. Eeeek. I’m so nervous and excited! So this week is a perfect one to do a giveaway. And this one is a bad-mamma-jamma.
A while back I asked my peeps on Facebook if they thought it would be white trash to do a huge giveaway with all of the latex paint and oil-based glazes that I don’t use anymore. And the response was an overwhelming “Give it away already!”. So today is the day. I have cleaned out my garage and I am giving away every single bit of paint that I no longer use.
Why don’t I use all of this anymore? Well, I am a CeCe Caldwell’s retailer, so it feels a little bit like sinning when I do. Plus, I never realized how toxic some of these products smell. But now that I use CeCe’s that is No VOCs I don’t have to deal with the nasty fumes! Plus I don’t have to sand or prime and I can paint indoors. Really, this list goes on and on as to why I have converted.
These are all great products, and I recommended and used all of them in my workshops in the past. But I can’t go back. So I am blessing someone else who will love these products like I did. It is enough to start your own furniture painting business or knock out a bunch of projects you have on your to-do list. Or, if you don’t win, just go buy some CeCe’s from me and thank me later. =)
Here is the list of everything included in the giveaway. Most are opened cans but who cares when it’s free?
