We all love a good before and after shot. It’s amazing what can be done with different houses and rooms. One of the easiest ways to change your home from drab to fab is with a coat of paint.
A recent study of 1,000 Australian homeowners found that one quarter (24%) of people try to hide rooms away behind closed doors when visitors arrive, and 31% claim that their spare room has become a useless dumping ground. 80% of us would like to change their homes’ appearance and 57% don’t use certain rooms as much as they would like to as a result.
The Taubmans Endure Paint Challenge aims to demystify home decoration and help Australians with the process of painting, from that initial spark of creativity to the final coat by providing everything they need – from inspiration and equipment, to fail safe colour palettes and expert tips. The website is full of helpful tips and advice for DIYers to finally act instead of just thinking and dreaming about a new look home.
If you would like to change the look of your home, register for the challenge at the website, buy a can of Taubmans paint from Bunnings and keep your receipt. Take a before photo, get painting and then take an after photo and submit the images by 26 April 2014.
Worst case scenario is you have that much wished for painted home. Best case scenario, you win one of the $150,000 worth of prizes which includes Bunnings vouchers and a photo shoot and magazine spread.
