I am so so pleased with how my small DIY project turned out thanks to Sherwin-Williams!

A few days ago I shared about how I headed to my local Sherwin-Williams to narrow down a paint color and decide which primer would work best on the project. Tom did a great job in helping me decide on Extreme Bond Primer and Duration Home® for the final color.

Sherwin-Williams gave me great advice on sanding the interior of the cabinet, then adding a light coat of primer. Dry according to paint times, then 2 coats of Duration paint. Since this was a summer project, I made sure to apply paint to the bookcase early in the morning before it got hot outside.

It was such a fun project to do and it was quick to makeover. And the impact of adding a bold yellow to the interior of the cabinet makes such a difference to the bookcase! Scroll down to see more pictures of how the DIY yellow bookcase turned out, and enter to win a $200 Sherwin-Williams paint giveaway! 

I am so happy with how the paint SW Cheerful looks with our bedroom’s gray walls (painted SW Dovetail Gray). Our master bedroom is one step closer to being finished with the freshly painted bookcase in place!

  2. My closet store is #2925 (Alpharetta, GA) and I’m in love with their cashmere paint. It is my go to paint for interior rooms – such a glorious smooth finish. I love my SW store so much that they know me by name there. Impressive, hmm?

    With the $200 gc, I would use it to help buy the paint for the main areas of the house. Our family room and foyer are two stories, so we have put off painting them so far…but boy do they need it!

    Love how the bookshelf turned out – and love that you only did the interior!

  3. My closest store is just down the road in Huntersville 🙂 I’ve been there numerous times. Their staff was awesome when I needed help with selecting the right brushes and roller for painting my kitchen cabinets. I know that my cabinets have held up so well because of the quality of their paint.

    My favorite color there is Sea Salt. It’s just such a calming color for me. We move in almost a week and the day we close my husband and I will painting late into the night so we can move our furniture in the next day. Of course, Sea Salt will be one of the colors 🙂 The $200 would be super awesome to help make my vision come true!

  8. My closest store is in Mint Hill, NC. I dream of painting our living room which has ugly 1970s wood paneling on the walls! It’s such a dark sad room that we only use it for storage at the moment. A fresh coat of paint (or two or three!) would do wonders for that room!
