Free Paint!

I love my local ACE Hardware!  But I have to say I am a little embarrassed that every time I walk in the doors I hear "Hi Jill, more paint today?".  Well this weekend I wasn't embarrassed at all to hear those words because of this...

Free Paint Saturday

Nothing better than Free Paint Saturday!  My local ACE has been running this promo on and off throughout the Summer and I finally was around to take advantage of it.  Well, I was kind of around.

See here is what in-laws were in town and we had this great plan that my husband and father-in-law were going to take my daughter fishing for the first time.  But first they needed a fishing pole!  So off they went to ACE with two things on their list, 1. A fishing pole (Dora the Explorer fishing pole to be exact) and 2. Get me a free can of paint!

My first choice was white.  Yup, boring old white.  But I am almost out and I need a little more to finish off (and actually start) my daughters bathroom ceiling.  My second choice was a color, any color, to paint our outdoor picnic table.  Remember this one we built last summer?

My husband soon discovered there were some restrictions on the free can of paint and for some reason they wouldn't let him get white, so odd.  Which means he was in charge of picking out the picnic table color.  So what did he come up with?!?!?!

ACE Paint Summerland A32-6

The above sample is actually really far off.  The color is much brighter and limer (yes, that is a word).  I started the first coat on the table and it looks a little something like this...

So fun!  The table still needs another coat of paint and a sealer but I just love how the Summerland green looks.  Once again a win for the hubs.  Good work dear, good work.

Check out your local ACE to see if they are offering this same great offer cause we all know we love us a little free paint!
