Valspar Paint and Designer Genevieve Gorder Launch the Connect to the Power in Color Giveaway with Thousands of Free Paint Sample Kits

Mar 01, 2012

CHICAGO, March 1, 2012 – Valspar Paint wants everyone to discover the transformative power in color, and to help them take the first step, today kicks off the Connect to the Power in Color Giveaway. Every day in March Valspar will be giving away up to 750 free eight-ounce paint samples and paint project starter kits to fans of Valspar Paint’s Facebook page Valspar's Facebook page. Valspar Paint Facebook fans can customize their sample kits with the paint color of their choice. The giveaway starts on the Facebook page at 10 a.m. EST each day, and lasts until midnight or until all 750 samples have been given away.

To help fans choose from Valspar’s 3,000 color choices of free samples available, designer Genevieve Gorder has curated an exclusive Valspar spring 2012 color palette. Genevieve’s palette includes twelve of her favorite Valspar hues for the home: Amber Rose, Sweet Shadows, Woodlawn Sterling Blue, Sable Calm, Soft Silk, Moonbeam, Bangkok Rust, Baked Clay, Luscious Green, Classic Navy, Spring Moss and Gold Seal.

"Valspar Paint is committed to bringing the transformative power in color to everyone, what better time to try on a new color than at the start of spring," said Gorder. “I’m all about experimenting with different paint colors to find the ones that give a room the right personality. The sample giveaway gives everyone a chance to find the colors they love for their space.”

Each free sample kit from the Connect to the Power in Color Giveaway contains one eight-ounce sample can, miniature roller, paint tray, coordinating color chips and a coupon for $5 off a gallon of Valspar Paint at Lowe’s® stores nationwide.

As the first step in any painting project, Valspar recommends trying a sample of the color. Paint can appear to change color depending on the light in the room. Designers and decorators often test paint colors before making a final selection by doing a 'roll out.' This can be done at home by applying a Valspar sample to a piece of poster board and watching how the light affects it in different areas of the room.
