I have told you about Glidden’s one-stop-shop for color and paint inspiration, MyColortopia.com, before. But today I get to tell you about a fun update they have made to their site! MyColortopia.com has just launched a new section on their website called Show Your Colors. Show Your Colors features before & after photos submitted by US–the real people. These Before & After photos celebrate our paint projects and also serve as inspiration for others who are considering painting. Here is how it works:
Step 1: You click on the Before & After Tab on the MyColortopia.com site and you will see the following. You can browse the before and after photos by room and by color. For example, let’s say you only want to see living rooms in blue. You simply choose “living rooms” from the scroll menu and “blues”. If you want to submit your own photos, click on “Submit Your Before & Afters“.
Step 2: You can color match any of the colors you like from the photos! Click on “Get paint colors from this photo”, move the crop tool to grab the section of the photo you are interested in, and then click “Show Colors”. If you want to replicate the paint colors in your own home, you now have a great starting point!
Step 3: To submit your own photos, sign in with your facebook credentials, fill out the form and upload your photos. (Be sure to upload your “after” picture first because it will be the featured photo on the site.)
Here is the before and after that I shared on MyColortopia.com. My stenciled foyer is a great example of the transformative power of paint!
And now it’s your turn! You can begin by playing with the widget below and sharing your own before and afters if you choose to do so. Have fun!
