Sneak Peek of the Man Room! {and $100 Sherwin-Williams Giveaway}

As I mentioned a few weeks ago, we have been working on a special room for my husband. When he said he wanted bright orange walls, my first thoughts were very, ummm, “are you POSITIVE??” And maybe I repeated that question about 10 times or so.

BUT, I let him have his orange walls, and I have to say, he was right. Because they look pretty fantastic!

I did choose the Sherwin-Williams color called Knockout Orange, #6885  just based merely on the swatch in the book. It wasn’t a burnt orange or red orange and seemed to be the perfect color of orange for the look Randy wanted in his room. And you know what? I didn’t even get a sample first! Just went with it. :)

I told my mom what we were doing and that he wanted orange paint, and she texted me a picture of a piece of furniture from one of her design magazines that was painted in the Invigorate color, which is right below the Knockout Orange I was contemplating, and then I knew I was on the right track and just went with the Knockout! They are very similar colors, but I liked the way the Knockout looked better on the swatch. :)

So are you ready to see just a tiny sneak peek?

  2. TAMARA TURNER says:

    I will be painting my ktichen cabinets in the next few weeks and would love to try Sherwin Williams! I have read so many blogs and stories about which paint to use I trust Emily’s opinion 100% on recommending the Sherwin Williams!

  3. Lindsay James says:

    It’s time to paint my daughter’s bathroom walls – currently a boring dismal shade of beige.

  4. I am looking forward to painting my living room this summer. It has been about 10 years since it was last painted!

  5. My laundry room went thro a mini update but now the walls look sad. A fresh coat of paint would give me the look I want!! Pick me!!

  6. I am dying to paint our front main bathroom. It is tiny, and it is a super boring beige color.

  7. Right now I want to paint my powder bathroom, I am installing a new vanity so I figure it is the best time to give the room an overhaul. I love the sneak peek! I can hardly wait to see more.

  8. We are buying a home and want to paint the kitchen and dining room. This area is the heart of our home where our family and friends will gather. I can hardly wait to add that warm touch of beautiful new paint.

  9. My teenaged daughter’s room needs an update. She received all new art for her birthday, and we need to get the walls painted so we can hang up her gallery wall.

      I actually have 3 rooms to paint, dining room, reading room which are attached, plus my laundry room needs to be re-painted, and hopefully all this will get done in the next few months.

  19. What a terrific, fun color you have chosen. The sneak peek is captivating.

    My laundry room is painted in a…um…shall we say lovely shade of basic builder white. It drives me crazy ever time I start a load of laundry much less put them in the drier or fold and hang clothes, or get the vacuum, or do anything else that requires me to se these uninteresting walls.

    Sherwin Williams has a tremendous selection of gorgeous colors. I would love to paint that boring laundry room and the cabinets in there.

  20. This is the year I’m painting my house! I’ve finished my kitchen, bathroom & spare room. On the list for this year are my living room, hallway, master bath & the exterior of my house. Also my big giant propane tank, does that count?!

  21. I am painting an accent wall in our tiny galley kitchen as well as the counters and ceiling. It’s a small room, but it’s going to take a lot of work!

  22. Out next painting project will be covering the awful 70s style wood paneling in our living and dining rooms. We just bought our first home in January and I can’t wait to get it painted over! And we are trying to decide on a nee color for our shutters!

  23. We need to paint a nursery for our 3rd little girl and our entire downstairs!!

  24. Oh my, we just moved and need to paint our living room, foyer, bedroom and kitchen…almost the whole house!
    Thanks for the chance!

  25. I need to paint my laundry room. Needs a refresh

  26. I would love to paint the upstairs hallway. It is still the flat builder’s white!

  33. amy pugmire says:

  34. So many painting plans! I think I’ll do the wall behind our bed in the master bedroom first…thanks for the giveaway!

  35. i am planning to paint my sunroom in a turquoise and then my daughters room in blue, my bed room in a silvery gray more than likely a metallic silver and my dining room in a rusty orange

  36. I need to paint my kitchen. BADLY! I painted sample colors on one wall 5 years ago but never went through with it. Lol.

  37. I need to paint my bathroom. I need color in my life. The light beige in our house is boring!

  38. my office is getting turned into a nursery. <3 so… office is moving to a small storage room. We could paint both… but as of now are starting with the new office.

  39. Deb Young says:

    I am in the process of turning a small spare bedroom into a dressing room, so that is my next painting project!

  40. I am looking forward to redoing our guest room. It has been a pale, unattractive yellow for about 10 years and definitely needs some color. Because it is a room with much light from two walls, it can handle some deeper color. And Sherman Williams is just in town!

  41. All but two rooms of my home need to be painted and hoping to do my master bedroom next, have my eye on navy blue as it is a pretty good size room. My Dad was a painter by trade and he always used Sherwin- Williams paints and Lowe’s has just started carrying their paints!

  42. Nancy Hrba says:

    Would like to paint my game room.
    Love Sherwin Williams paint colors.

  43. Oh I sure love those colors! I would love to tackle my powder room next – at least for the inside. For outdoors – staining the concrete & building & painting a deck.

  44. I would love to paint my formal living/dining room. We’ve lived in the house for more than 3 years and it still has beige wall that I dislike. This will be a perfect opportunity to finally get rid of the beige color!

  45. I want to do a small makeover of our half bath before company comes for my daughters graduation! I love orange anything, so this room in orange should be amazing.

  46. I have to pain my entire house – inside and outside!
    Can’t wait to get started. Thanks for inspiration.

  69. Elizabeth Roberts says:

    I would love to paint my mother’s whole house! the people that lived there before must have been colorblind,

  70. I would love to paint our living room and master bedroom!!

  71. When I moved into my current house, it was an array of colors. I have muted it a bit but my bathroom is still a shocking purple… mixed with the blandest tan tiles. It is a horrible thing to look at every morning. That is my next painting project (or maybe even a gut job).

  72. I need to paint my kitchen cabinets and a few rooms in the house before we put it on the market. I have heard that they have the best cabinet paint so that is what I am going with. I love the sneak peak of the room; can’t wait to see the entire thing. That sofa looks groovy and comfy!

  73. I very badly want to paint my girls’ bedroom next!!

  74. I just painted our Master bedroom SW Naval, have a can of SW Agreeable Gray waiting to go onto my kitchen wall, and am already dreaming up what color I want to put on the walls in my office. Have I mentioned that we moved into a house with alllll builder beige walls? :)

  75. I’d like to paint re powder room and maybe an accent wall in the dining room. Everything is builder beige now!

  76. Lauren E. says:
