My Favorite Product for QUICK and EASY paint touch-ups {paint storage solution}

Happy Friday my friends! I have an awesome tool that I want to share with you that I am so excited about. Before I explain this product, a little bit of what is going with me. As some of you may know, we moved to Montana last year and are taking care of my parents house while they are on a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We are so grateful to be doing it, but with two little girls I am a bit paranoid about keeping it in tip top condition for when they get back. One of the biggest problems we have had is dings in the wall – from toys, laundry baskets, rocking chairs, etc. I have been looking for a quick solution for touch ups that I can do quickly and easily without a lot of hassle. As I was browsing the internet for a good solution, I came across Dipsy Dabber, which was exactly what I was looking for. Have you ever heard of it?
I contacted the company and they were so nice to send me a few to show to you.

This basically sums it up…
Dipsy Dabber - the perfect paint storage solution

To put it simply, it’s a storage container for paint  that comes with the brush attached. You don’t’ have to worry about storing huge cans, which I love, and when you do see a spot that needs a little touching up, everything is right there.  I love the label that is on the container where you can write everything down that you need to know. No more guessing or testing when trying to cover up those little dings in your wall.

As soon as I got it I wanted to try it out.

Here is my first culprit. So I dipped…

I dabbed … (one other thing I love, the container brushes off the paint for you so you don’t get excess paint or drips)

…and VOILA!! As good as new. Seriously one of the easiest thing I’ve ever done. I was able to touch up all of the spots I wanted to within 10 minutes.

Another great thing about Dipsy Dabbers, you can stack the containers.  LOVE!!!

Has anyone else tried Dipsy Dabber? I haven’t been given any compensation to write this post, just a few containers to try out from the company, and am passing along a product that I think is great. If you are interested in ordering some, you can go to the site here or order them off of Amazon.

Also, I am finally jumping ship from blogger and switching over to Word Press with some new and exciting things coming to the blog. The migration is happening this weekend so I apologize for any technical difficulties, but am so excited to show you the new and improved Favorite Paint Colors. Have a great weekend everyone!!

Favorite Paint Color of the Month {Crushed Ice}

Happy last day of February! Today I wanted to share with you another one of my favorite paint colors this month.
So many paint colors to choose from, I have so many favorites but the winner for the month of February is Crushed Ice by Sherwin Williams.  If you know me by now, you know I love grays, but I especially love warm grays, beiges, greiges, anything up that alley. This color is a warm gray and has just a hint of beige in it.*LOVE*

Thank you for letting me share another one of my favorite colors with you today. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. We are staying inside to keep warm, there is a raging blizzard outside and school is CANCELLED. School never gets cancelled in Montana so we are taking advantage of our snow day here. See you next week!

Simply White + other white paint colors

painted stripes in home office
White stripes: Simply White by Benjamin Moore
Do you have a room that needs a little sprucing up, but you don’t want to paint the whole thing? I love how Sabrina just added stripes on one wall and it changed the feel of the whole space. Check out her blog for more information, the transformation is inspiring.
Also, are you looking for the perfect white to paint something in your home? I got this infographic in my e-mail the other day. I love Antique White and Dover White from Sherwin Williams. Do you have any favorite whites you have used? (click on the picture below to see 5 tips to find the perfect shade of white)

White is something we have been seeing a lot of this past week in Montana, snow is falling from the sky as I speak BUT it finally got above zero today! Yeah! Soo can’t wait for spring colors. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Favorite Paint Color of the Month {Winter in Paris}

Happy last day of January! I can’t believe we are already one month through the year, crazy stuff! We are finally getting snow in Montana and I love it. I figure if it’s going to be winter, we might as well have snow to go with it. Better now than in April I suppose.
So when I was looking at the paint color forecast for 2014, I loved Valspar’s “Zenergy” palette, especially Winter in Paris. You know how colors just jump out to you on the screen and you think, LOVE that! Well that’s exactly what I thought when I saw “Winter in Paris”.

Then I came across this beautiful living room makeover from The Blissful Bee and fell in love once again. The whole transformation is amazing, but I especially love the colors. I love how this paint color has a tint of gray, a little turquoise and is not too “baby” blue. Winter in Paris by Valspar - living room paint color

I’ve decided to name it my favorite paint color of the month. Now I realize this is the last day of January, but I have a ton of favorites and will feature a new one sometime next month, and then the next month and so on. Plus, the name is just fitting for this time of year.

Has anyone tried this? Does it look as good in person as it does in the pictures? I would love to know! Have a wonderful weekend my favorite readers!
