You guys know I’ve been partnering with Ace Hardware, and can I tell you how awesome they are? I’ve had the chance to do a lot of great projects with them, including trying out three different lines of paint (which is probably my most favorite thing to do) plus do a bunch of other DIY and home maintenance projects. I’ve got a few more in the works this year too!
My first project with Ace was actually well before I was asked to be on their blogger panel, and I did a paint makeover in our laundry room using Clark+Kensington Baby Elephant. In that post I also talked about that time I went into my local store and was looking for a specific screw to our Ikea sofa that I lost, and the employee found the right size screw but it was too long. So what did he do? He took it in the back and shortened it for me with a hack saw. For free! All for a screw that cost less than a dollar.
I had the chance to try out the Ace Cabinet Door and Trim paint, which is a water based, self leveling alkyd acrylic paint. GREAT paint for trim, doors, and furniture to get a super smooth, hard finish.
I also had the chance to head over to my parents who are local and help paint my brother’s old bedroom, which is now a guest room. The color is Clark+Kensington Oyster Pearl.
Plus I painted our 1940’s rental bathroom using their newest line of Valspar paint. The color is Valspar Pool Tile.
And in case you missed in on Involving Home, I also talked about how to easily change out a dated plastic shower knob (no plumbing skills required), how we organized our garage tools with a simple pegboard, and how to edge your lawn like a pro.
Ace has been great to work with, and they are always so helpful with my questions. I can see why they are ranked highest in customer satisfaction with home improvement retail stores by J.D. for the 8th year in a row.
