The first year we lived in our home, we hosted Thanksgiving, and it was one of our most memorable holidays to date, bringing us a good laugh every time we think about it. We had just finished the drywall repair throughout the entire first floor, not a single wall had been painted (patchy pumpkin walls as far as the eye could see!), our furnace was on the fritz, and we were without water for half the day (due to a morning plumbing fiasco). At the time, it felt disastrous (although looking back, the comedy of errors was more hilarious than anything), but by the end of the day, having all of our friends dining around a freshly DIY-ed table in our new home made our hearts sing. We’ll never forget it.
Since then, our in-town ‘family‘ has grown, and the hosting duty was passed along to our friend with a large studio space. A few weeks ago, she sent out the annual Friendsgiving email, asking for that final headcount of who’s in (us!) and who’s out (no one; all of us are always in!) for a big, lounge-y, lazy Thanksgiving meal. It reminded us that the holidays are officially upon us (hooray, I live for this!), and it also gave us a good little kick to complete a handful of loose patio projects before the weather turns to snow.
All this to say, when BEHR Paint® reached out and asked us to take part in their holiday #BEHRBox challenge, we couldn’t agree fast enough. As a part of the challenge, they sent us a mystery box, and using at least 3 items from the box, we’ll need to create a last minute DIY project to prepare our home before guests arrive – and we’ll have one week to do it. Although we won’t be hosting Thanksgiving Day, we have been hosting a rotating crew of friends and family, and the guest room calendar fills up quickly at this time of year! The #BEHRBox was mailed to us last week, and we filmed our reaction to the reveal of what was inside:
BEHR Paint® just announced their Color Currents 2017, a palette of 20 limited edition new colors. Our box contained colors from the Composed Palette (our favorite of the 3!), including Silent Sands, Wanderlust and Shades On. Also included? Brushes, blue tape, sandpaper and a crafting sponge. (Pssst – Jack has always been our curious buddy, but did anyone spot the CC?)
Flipping through the Color Current swatch book has us debating this color versus that (depending on the type of projects floating around our noodles), although you know our favorites are any variation of their gray, blush and navy hues. Everything’s Rosy, Shades On and In the Woods could all blend seamlessly right into our home! Be sure to check out all of their limited edition colors – they’re good (and available for mixing at your Home Depot!).
Next week, we’ll share our TBD project as a part of the #BEHRBox Challenge, and while we hunker down and hash out those details, BEHR® wants to help you with your last minute holiday to-dos, too. So together with BEHR®, we’ll be giving away a $100 Home Depot® gift card to get started on those projects of your own! Using the Rafflecopter widget below, enter as many ways as you’d like. This giveaway is eligible for those in the United States and runs through Friday, October 28th until 5pm CST. The winner will be announced within this post and contacted directly. Good luck and happy entering!
