Painting A Closet, Inspired By Tomatoes

“Painting A Closet, Inspired By Tomatoes”

Ace Hardware has provided free paint samples. I was also compensated for my time and this blog post. All opinions and positions expressed here are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of Ace Hardware.

I was totally excited to be selected for this project with Ace Hardware. I was selected to do a project using the paint color: Heirloom Tomato by Valspar.

When it comes to paint, a lot of thought goes into not only selecting the right color but also the right brand name. Ace Hardware – the authority on color – asked us to participate in their 31 Days of Color by bringing our painting inspiration to our home.

I knew exactly what I was going to paint: the baby’s nursery closet. It needed paint badly. The last paint job was splotchy and I didn’t really care because it used to be my closet. Now, I wanted it to be perfect, OF COURSE. The rest of the room is light grey, soft pinks, and yellows so I thought this color would be the perfect contrast. I love it.

I love the fact that depending on the lighting, the paint color can change. It could be more muted in the evening and more bright and bold during the daytime. I loved that and I was excited to see it change!

I was thoroughly impressed with the process of picking out my paint from Ace Hardware. It was very easy and the Ace Paint Studio really made it easy.
