DecoArt Giveaway #2

I’m happy.

It seems the sweet folks at DecoArt

sent me a little extra paint and glaze
to use on my faux zinc nightstand.


I have some serious hoarding issues
when it comes to art supplies, fabric, paper – you name it.
But, I’ve decided to share the extra DecoArt supplies
with one of you. 

It seriously just took me 15 minutes and a phone call 

to my therapist to write that last sentence.

(No, not really.)

This giveaway includes:

One 10 oz. jar of Shimmering Silver Elegant Finish Metallic Paint

 One 2 oz. bottle of Ebony Black Americana Acrylic Paint 
One 2 oz. bottle of Titanium White Americana Acrylic Paint
One 2 oz. bottle of Americana Glazing Medium

To enter,

You need to be a very much appreciated
follower or subscriber
comment on this post.

That’s it.

Comments will close

August 2 at midnight.

I will announce the winner

on August 3
(My birthday!)

Good luck!

Update: I don’t really have a therapist!
 (Not necessarily saying that I don’t need one; just don’t have one.)

  9. I am a follower!! I don’t know what I will do a treatment on, but the possibilities are limitless! I too understand about saving(hoarding sounds harsh, lol) that is what my sideboard top and bottom are for(darn, can’t get anything else in there, such a hoarder, I mean saver).

  15. Bonnie says:

    after seeing your nightstand, which inspired me, I’ve decided I want to do a headboard for our new cabin. I want to mix silver,modern tones with the old log walls… I think it will look great. Sign me up for the giveaway.

  18. Jennifer says:

    I too have been lusting after the Restoration Hardware zinc furniture and was overjoyed no ecstatic no hyperventilating when I found your web site describing how to do it for myself. I now am obsessed with finding the right pieces to paint- Craigs List is getting more of my time than my small children. It would be great to win the materials and I so appreciate the opportunity. Happy Early Birthday. I love your site.
