Paint!

My scheduled post is on hold because my sweet Bub has run off with the camera.

I'm starting to get a little freaked because usually I can find it in about two minutes, but it's been about ten this time. And still nothing. I'm sure he'll lead me right to it when he wakes from his nap. Yeah, that happens.

Anyhoo, I had to tell you the great news!! Home Depot is having a FANTASTIC paint sale this weekend!

Are you as excited as I am?!?! NO? Get excited, this is GOOD:
Through tomorrow you can get a gallon of flat paint for $12 after rebate! What what? No way Joe-se! All other finishes are $5 off a gallon using the rebate.

I loooooove Behr paint. This is the perfect opportunity to tackle those white walls. Or those awful, disgusting walls that you got when you moved in.

And even if the sweet, sweet paint guy who gives your son a sticker because he is so sweet tells you that all finishes are $17, plus another $5 off with the rebate, don't believe him. :) It's just flat paint. But the others are only $18 after rebate.

A steal I tell you! GO!

I'll be back soon, with pictures, I hope. Closeups of my son's nose, eyes and feet most likely...

  4. I guess that's American $. I love BEHR paint too. Our Benjamin Moore is about $60 a gallon, BEHR is about $32 and goes on as well or better. Will have to check out if Canadian Home Depot has a sale on. Looking forward to seeing your paint updates, and the little one's toes too.

  5. I heard that on the radio...but I might actually PAINT some walls white. We don't have very many white walls in my house and I actually LIKE white walls!!

  6. That's a GREAT deal!!!! Flat paint in my house though, doesn't work well with 3 kids who feel the need to run their dirty lil hands across them. Flat paint is hard for me to keep clean!

  7. Great price! We always use Behr..... other brands are too watery and runny, messy, don'tcha know.

  8. I'm going, I'm going!! I have those disgusting "just moved in walls". We've been here since October, but I have purposely put off the painting until spring so I could decide what colors I want. I have paint chip samples taped to each wall in my house. Now I guess I'll be making a trip to Home Depot tomorrow to bite the bullet and get to painting. Thanks for the heads up!!

  18. Thanks for the heads up! I SO want to re-paint our living room but cannot justify it since it hasn't really been that long since we did it last. But maybe, just maybe.....

  22. Geez, I just bought paint at Lowe's on Saturday! It was on sale, but not THAT cheap!
    Have fun painting, can't wait to see the results!

  23. Didn't you say no buying anything else until you were done purging? ARE YOU DONE?

    I've got a few rooms left upstairs, but FLAT? Does anyone actually USE that stuff? I tried the "scrubbable flat" once and, let's just say it's not. Scrubbable that is. I had to repaint. (Of course, while I was at it I might as well change the color too, right?? heehee)

  24. AH-HA, I'm painting my bathroom this week. Thanks for the info. Once I couldn't find my keys, couldn't find my keys, couldn't find my keys. I WAS LATE!! They were stuffed way down, in the kitchen garbage. CUTE KIDS!!!
    Good luck.
    Have a great day.

  25. You're cracking me up! Don't you love it when your kids get ahold of the camera? Such great pictures! My personal favorite was when I let them play with my iPhone to keep them quiet. When I got it back I realized that they had taken a picture of my bottom (in jeans!) and set it as my wallpaper. Exactly what I want to look at every time I pick up my phone!

  26. Oh, thanks for the headsup! It might be a good time to pick out the paint color for my boys' room now... Our whole house is pretty much going to be painted in Behr, LOL. The hallway is Rejuvenate, the wall around the fireplace is Mother Nature, and the girls' room is Sassy Lilac so far...

  27. We love Behr Paint! Or should I say my dh does...since he does the painting! I wish I knew the color I wanted for my Living Room because I would buy it now for the rebate! Oh well!

    Thanks for the head's up anyways, I love a good deal!

  28. Thanks for the tip! I am getting ready for a paint makeover. I'll have to get myself over there and check things out. Good luck finding your camera!

  29. I almost wet myself when I heard the news! I've been working on getting my husband to cave and let me buy some! In fact, he sat next to me while I read your post and I got to say "See!!! Thrifty Decor Chick wants me to buy paint too! It's a steal!" :) So, thanks for helping my cause! Hee hee
