I find painting to be relaxing.  I love to do little projects, and I don't even mind painting a whole room (at least when I don't have to worry about my preschoolers getting into everything while I do it, haha).  I don't really have any experience with Glidden paints, but I am REALLY excited because on June 1st, they launched their Glidden Paint, Get Color, Give Color Giveaway.  I signed up for two testers and I hope I am lucky enough to recieve them.  It was really easy to do and I was impressed with their website.  You can play around with their Room Painter, and they have Top 10 Color Palettes of popular and coordinating colors to make finding and selecting the right colors for you simple to do.  If you check them out in store (Home Depot carries them), their paint chips have coordinating colors right on the back too. 

I selected a shade of pink and a shade of green because I'm currently in the process of painting a table for my girls' playroom, and I thought it might be cute to paint flowering vines down the sides.  We'll see if I can pull it off, but it will be fun to play around and pretend to be artistic.  Even if you don't happen to win the testers (which can paint up to three square feet!), you can pick them up inexpensively at any Home Depot store.  Their testers are neat because they actually come with a little brush, right in the lid...like nail polish, haha.  I think it's a reallyyyyy great idea to get some of these testers in the colors of paint you already have in your home, because they would be amazing for quick little touchups.  I know we are forever getting dings/chips off the paint on our walls (which, is not Glidden paint, but I bet if I just brought in a paint chip they could mix me up a tester of the same color anyway).  They wouldn't take up much room to store either.  Sounds good to me.
