PAINT Giveaway!

Yes, you read that correctly. I’m giving away paint! Okay, I’m not giving away paint, but Olympic Paint has generously offered to giveaway a few cans of paint to Restored Style fans. Heck yes.   

You may recall that I used Olympic’s Quill in my dining room just a few weeks ago.


Olympic’s Quill

I’m in love with the color and have never been so certain about a color before I actually saw it on our wall. Why did I fall head over heels so darn fast? I used Olympic’s new ColorClix  application, a new desktop color tool that enables you to select any color displayed on your computer and match it to one of Olympic’s paint colors. Images, photos, websites, even online videos and television shows … whatever the color inspiration, the ColorClix tool enables you to easily identify and bring that shade to life for your next painting project. Easssy, right?!

Premium Interior Paint


And, have I mentioned that Olympic paint’s zero VOC formula and zero VOC colorants is as green as green gets? So hop on over to Olympic paint, peek at the colors, and then tell me which color you heart!

With over 1200 colors, how will you choose? Good luck!

  • TO ENTER: Leave a comment below – what color would you choose?
  • GIVEAWAY ENDS: Thursday night, October 21st, 2010 at 11:59 p.m. EST

Quick note – I simply love Olympic Paint. No advertising here, just plain love.

    It seems like I always have a few painting projects on my mind. Right now I’m thinking of using a blue green color, By the Sea, in our bathroom.

    1. Gena Nieman Said:

      I would love to eventually have a bright, fresh looking kitchen. I think the ultra white would give a nice classic look.

  2. Wendy Said:

    Thanks for the great give-a-way! We just moved, so I have several painting projects that need to be done.

  3. Liisa Hillenbrand Said:

    Looking at all the great ideas and projects on this site, I am dying to do something in my house. My master bedroom has had white walls for too long.

    I am thinking about using Secret Passage.

  4. Kevin Said:

    I recently used D64-5 (submarine) for a fireplace mantel. I was very pleased with the Premium zero VOC paint (low odor, very easy to use) and the color was just what I was looking for for that project.

  5. derek Said:

    I really like Secret Passage (D58-2) and Silver Charm D45-3. I need to finish a paint project so winning this would be fantastic. Thanks @restoredstyle and @OlympicPaint for the giveaway!

  6. Jenny Smith Said:

    I think Derek meant Shrinking Violet C51-4. I’m loving bright blues right now!

    1. derek Said:

      HAHAHAHAHA, If I win the Violet C51-4, I’m totally painting everything you own with it.

  7. kelly Said:

    I love all colors…but am a big fan of Lantana Lime.

  8. Kandace Said:

    If I won I would probably just get some bright white since I am need of finshing my kitchen and bath moldings! Great contest.

  9. rebecca Said:

    i would love to do my guest room in a light grey!

    Aloe Vera – for our entry…

  11. Hilary Said:

    What a fantastic prize. Paint sure does transform any room. Loving bright green lately. Olympic paint’s Lettuce Alone looks delicious, yet peaceful – just like the name implies.

  12. becky Said:

    i have been wanting to paint our hallway a nice light grey. great giveaway!

  13. Solducky Said:

    Wow, so hard to choose. Spice Delight looks nice as does glazed pears.

  14. Alexa F. Said:

    We’ve been thinking of toning down the lightish blue in the kitchen to really match the feel of the current kitchen. It could still be blue, maybe, but we’re also thinking of warmer colors… especially now with autumn here.

  15. Amber Said:

    I have a nursery to paint! I can’t wait to decorate as soon as we find out if it is boy or a girl :-)

  16. Alyssa Showalter Said:

    I love Smoke Screen!

  17. Clare Said:

    Earthy Cane for our master bathroom.

  18. Wehaf Said:

    I would choose a nice cream color for the dining room, maybe I’d match what we have in our living room.

  19. Hol Said:

    You know how I wanted to paint the kitchen cabinets a yummy shade of yellow…so I would have to say Butter or Shortbread. Maybe for our guest room? It needs a little TLC.

  20. [email protected] Said:

    Our guest room needs a new coat of paint – just a smidge darker than Quill would be perfect.

  21. [email protected]'s House Said:

    I’ve got to suck it up and finally tackle my bright yellow latex-paint covered kitchen. It’s the one room I’ve completely avoided since we bought the house in June! Something nice and calming like Faint Flicker would be perfect.

  22. Danielle Said:

    I love Steeple Gray D57-4, I’d use it in my powder room.

  23. Jolene Said:

    I loved using the ColorClix application. Its great for someone like me who has a hard time visualizing things like paint color. I would love to paint Marcus new room capan cream, butter or bashfull. I am looking for a soft base color and then plan to paint foodballs, baseballs, basketball, etc.

  24. Christine Said:

    I love the “Teal Zeal B58-5″ from the Audobon collection!

  25. Kate Said:

    I would like to re-paint my bathroom. Its a pale green now but it shows too much…so somethign a little darker maybe.

  26. kristen k Said:

    What great products! There were so many colors to pick from, but my favorite was yellow lettuce!!! It’s fresh and bright but not too much for your home.

  27. Elise Said:

    Ohh I for sure choose Yukon Gold B113-3!! Ohh it makes me feel happy and like it is a beautiful summer day even though the weather out is starting to turn grey and miserable!!

  28. Lindsey Said:

    State Pebble – I just love all the warm grays!

  29. Amber Carter Said:

    Hmmm… I’m looking for a fun color for my baby boy’s room. Maybe Souvenir (C54-2)? What an awesome giveaway!

  30. Amy Wing Said:

    I love love love this visualizer app. I am so bad at seeing how a whole room of color is going to look based on a tiny swatch, so this is perfect for me! I want to redo our master bath with a subtle kind of ocean inspired look, so I’m thinking Rain Cloud D68-1 for the walls and then the aquas and blues will come in via the accessories so as not to be too literal about the whole thing!

  31. Liz Gallardo Said:

    Ohh how fun! I love paints but with asthma I don’t usually use it much. A low odor zero VOC paint would be a dream! What would I Do first is the question! With a new older house, there is so much. I would paint two shelving units in MOSS POINT GREEN to perfectly match the slate tile of my sun porch. It is a lovely color. I would next tackle the kitchen. It needs a bright and warm redo for the cold Michigan winters. I think GLAZED PEAR is the perfect shade to compliment the slate floor and darker counters in my kitchen. Thank you Olympic for getting my creative thoughts flowing again!
    I just found this blog today and will be back very soon.

  32. kristen k Said:

    I really love hearing everyone elses selections and ideas…it really gets my creative juices flowing!

  33. chloe Said:

    This is awesome! We would love to paint the outside of our house, and love what you did with your house! We are looking at a light grey or tan, and have black shutters- i really like eifle tower or wistful willow!

  34. Katy Said:

    This is such a fun idea! I could use some paint for my bathroom too! I found quite a few that I liked, including ‘Green Grapes”, “Cracker Bitz”, “Gold Buff” and “Hitching Post.” My favorite color I have to say is A68-3 “Lemon Mint” – love it!

  35. Patti Said:

    I love love love the quill color you chose. I have four rooms that I am going to tackle in the near future – two bedrooms, a laundry room and a bathroom. Good luck on your dining room, I can’t wait to see it done. I am loving your blog – I check it everyday and can’t wait to see what you are up to next. You are one talented young lady.

  36. Addi Radke Said:

    I love the stormy weather color! I love the idea of gray walls with black and white accents in a bedroom. You can also give it some fun punches of color with pillows and decor to spice it up! Fun fun!

  37. Marilyn Richards Said:

    Love your blog…..older houses have charater…wouldn’t trade for a new one ever…they say I am losing sq feet in my house by painting so much, but fell in love with Olympic coffee bean, willow tree and star, love your style

  38. Kalee Said:

    I have an entire house to paint! I like Vanilla Brandy- a warm neutral :)

  39. Martha Said:

    I could so use a nice creamy white for all my moldings!

  40. Roni Said:

    Oh how Shortbread would make our very dark living room warm and sunny (A13-2…there is apparently more than one version of Shortbread).

  41. Jamie Said:

    I just painted most of my house but not my bedroom, which is in desperate need of some sprucing up! The tough part is picking a color!

  42. Claire Said:

    I love ‘Secret Passage’; it’s weird how soothing it is because it’s gray! With ‘Ultra White’ trim, it looks modern, too.
