There is a coupon in the August 2013 issue of This Old House magazine for a free bottle of sample paint from Lowes. (I don't know if this is available for newsstand issues or if it is just in subscription issues). It is the same paint that I used to make my DIY chalk paint a few weeks ago. The coupon is good until October 1....You can't get any better than free! Even if you don't make chalk paint out of the bottle, it is great paint for painting furniture and wooden accessories.
A couple of months ago, there had been another coupon and I had picked up this bottle of paint. It's a great light blue color....Very fresh looking. I am working on a project using it that I'll share with you in a few days.
There are lots of great makeovers and products in This Old House this month. One of the things I found interesting in this issue was project where a reader used a picture frame to cover an inset medicine cabinet. My favorite part is something that she added to the inside of the frame, though....You'll have to get the magazine to see what I loved!!!
