Time for a change using #gliddentesters I bought at Walmart


Did you ever look around your house and say "ok, it's time for a change"? I do, plenty, but I never do much about it for some reason. Until now, that is.
I like red on my walls, that's no secret. I have red on my bedroom walls, my dining room walls, my living room walls, my laundry room walls and my front foyer walls. Yes, you heard me, I like red. However, recently I've been thinking that my dining room needed an update. Maybe something to break up the red. Break up the red, but still compliment it in the other areas of my house.
I went to the Glidden website to see what I could learn. Let me tell you, if you want a good place to go, that is it. You could 'paint' a room to see what the color would look like with the suggested trim colors. They had every color they carried on there and if you liked something you could save it so you could back later and find it again. They even have calculator to help you figure out how much paint you will need, which I found great because I'm always guessing at that.
So my daughter and I headed to Walmart on the weekend to see if we could find the colors I was looking for. Surprisingly, they had all the #gliddentesters, over 300 of them so I was not restricted at all in what I chose. Of course, my daughter tried talking me into doing her room instead of the dining room and I almost caved, but I really wanted to do my dining room.
I ended up choosing these three colors and they looked pretty close to what ended up on the wall.
So, that is all you get for a sneak peek. I'm going to paint my dining room and take before and after photos. I'll post all the info on here and let you know how it turned out. Maybe you can even let me know what you think. There is a $2 coupon on these testers too.Check out my right side bar for it. That makes your #gliddentesters only $.94!!
If you want to take a look at how I got the #gliddentesters and where to look for the same thing in your Walmart, take a look at my ThisMoment below.

“This project has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Glidden Testers/Paint #collectivebias” but all the opinions are my own.


  1. This looks great, I like the mustard yellow color with the black.

  2. It's actually a deep green color, not black. The lighting is not great in the room. I'll have to used my other camera for the reveal shots!

  3. Can't wait to see which one you pick!

  4. looks like a fun color combo...what to do...thhis was such a fun task...can't wait to see your results....from soFAB
