31 Days of PAINTING

by Cheri on October 1, 2011

The Holidays are fast approaching. We all need to get busy and get those rooms painted before all of our company begins arriving.

What rooms are you repainting? OR is it a piece of furniture that is getting updated with a new coat of paint?

Be a showoff and show us what you are up to. Even though this party is sponsored by Dutch Boy –you can enter projects using other brands of paint.

The winner will get 2 gallons of Dutch Boy paint–so get painting.


You must click to follow us (the Google Friend Connect)-leave a comment

 Please add our 31 days of Painting button in your post.

You may enter as many posts/projects as you like.

FOR THIS CHALLENGE-you may enter projects that have been entered in our monthly contest.

Be sure to check out our other 31 days of parties.


 This month we are doing a Breast Cancer Fundraiser. Please check out our 31 DAYS of HOPE auction.

When and where do we link up? I ‘liked’ both Dutch Boy and DIY on facebook and became a follower of The DIY Club (I thought I already was a follower, sorry about that.)

We are in contact with Linky Tools. It seems there is a problem from their end-we have the code in the post but the party is not showing up,

We hope to have it resolved as quickly as possible.

Elizabeth–everything is working now.

Cheri October 1, 2011 at 2:15 pm

And for the record–it wasn’t a problem on the Linky Tools side–WP didn’t like the button code in the post. Brent rocks and was working on it trying to help.

Thanks, it is working now and I linked easily. Thanks for hosting, I’m looking forward to lots of inspiration. Thanks to Dutch Boy for sponsoring too.

This is great! Does it have to be a painting project or does staining count, too?? We’re planning to completely refinish an old dining room table/chair set that we bought this month. Actually, the table legs will be painted and the top stained… Would that count??

Cheri October 1, 2011 at 3:08 pm

Kourtney–You have paint in the project so that would work.

Thanks for having the Dutch Boy paint party. Now I know how to do a blog hop, thanks to you guys. I have never pasted HTML to my HTML post stuff (don’t even know what I’m talking about!!). It’s really scary stuff. I never know when I am going to majorly screw something up. I love learning new stuff. thanks again

Cheri October 19, 2011 at 7:57 am

So glad for you Kathy. It is fun learning new things. Thanks for coming by and joining us.
