CIL Paints Beauty on a Small Budget Challenge



Holidays are coming soon, and there's so much to do. Friends coming to stay over for a few days, dinner plans with the in-laws, family gatherings. So much to think about and plan, and on top of it all, the house just doesn't look the way we'd like. Every year we tell ourselves that we're going to tackle a fix-up project way before the holidays, but we just never seem to get there!




Well, this year we're partnering with CIL Paints to launch a home redesign project which is small enough to actually get done in time for the holidays and will create the perfect pick-me-up to brighten a room. We've picked the room where most of us spend a lot of time in during the holidays—the kitchen—to apply a quick week-end paint project that will add a bit of pizzazz to the room, and won't cost a lot of money (it is the holidays). We've had some shelves in the kitchen for a while now that we've always wanted to do something with, and with a little paint, it should really pop! Follow our paint journey online #CILPremiumBeauty.

We were  stoked to find out CIL Premium paint is free of VOCs (volatile organic compounds), is washable & durable, virtually odourless and easty to apply.

And to make this project even funner, CIL would like to invite everyone else to join us for this mini paint project, so we're announcing in partner with CIL Paints a "Beauty on a Small Budget Challenge"! Pick a small paint project using CIL Premium paint that will be a perfect little pick-me-up for a room, enter the contest, and you will be eligible to win the grand prize—a room makeover valued at $5,000.00 and an expert design consultation! Plus, we are giving away a $250.00 gift card to the Home Depot on Twitter! Details how to enter below.
