Fast Freebies and Great Giveaway!

I heard a vehicle in my driveway a little bit ago and couldn't imagine who would be stopping by at 8:30 a.m.  The Fedex man?  I don't remember ordering anything.

Here's what he left me.

Can you guess what it is?

No?  Here's another hint ...

Still not sure?  Let's open the box.

It's the Valspar paint sample I ordered free the other day!  Yep, I posted about this free giveaway on Wednesday right after ordering mine and it showed up here early this morning.  That's 6 days, which includes a weekend and a holiday.  Pretty neat, huh?

The box contained a 7.2 oz sample of paint in the color I chose, a small paint tray and itty-bitty paint roller ... everything I need to slap it on my living room wall to see if it's the direction I want to go.  I chose Faded Denim and I think it may be too light, but it gives me something to start with.  

What else was in the box?

This booklet that shows what other colors I might be 
inspired to try along with the Faded Denim ...

Another packet with more paint chips that complement the Faded Denim ...

And a coupon for $5 off a gallon of Valspar paint from Lowe's.

Got any home improvement or DIY projects on your
to-do list this Spring?  Don't miss out on this offer!

Mine came on Saturday - what a shocker! You don't expect to see a FedEx man on your doorstep on a Saturday.
