Once a kindergarten teacher, now your go-to guide for all things DIY. My passion for teaching didn't stop when I left the classroom - I merely switched from ABCs to DIYs. I've learned a lot from transforming my own home from scratch, and now I'm here to pass on that knowledge to you.
“Hi Liz! I just launched a new paint brand called Clare Paint! We’re a direct to consumer paint company offering a much easier and more inspiring way to shop for paint.”
I didn’t even finish reading the message before I was heading over to Clare’s Instagram feed to see this new paint company. If you’ve been around here for even just a little while, you know paint is my solution for everything home related. . . well, almost everything. But my point is, my friends, there’s a NEW PAINT company in town!
Since then, I’ve used Clare Paint in our guest bathroom and with Oliver’s modern wall makeover. And here’s why you need to give Clare Paint a try in your own home: it’s paint shopping simplified. Nicole saw where the paint shopping experience could be better and that’s exactly what she did and here’s how.
How many times have you gone to a paint or home improvement store to pick out a paint color and leave with 20 different variations of the color you’re looking for? Right?! We’ve all been there and it’s always been this way: running back and forth between home and the store to find the perfect paint color.
With Clare, they offer 55 carefully curated timeless colors to choose from online. Need the perfect white with a hint of cream? Got it! Looking for that gray that doesn’t pull any other hues? Clare has that to. What does this mean for you? Time saved trying to pick out the perfect color because Clare has already done all the work for you. From 1000’s to choose from to 55 expertly curated colors.
So, it’s great that you can view the paint colors online, but how in the world do I know what the colors will look like in my home? That’s what you’re thinking, right? Once again, Nicole has thought of everything. First, you can take the Clare Color Genius to receive a personalized color recommendation based on your preferences. Then with a few clicks of your mouse, you can have paint color swatches delivered right to your front door.
These swatches are peel and stick which allow you to move them around your home, see them in different lighting, you don’t have to get out a single paintbrush to test a color and clean up is a breeze: just peel.
My second most favorite thing besides paint: the excitement of getting a package delivered. And when that and paint collide, I’m doing a happy dance on delivery day. Yes, my friends, this means Clare Paint is delivered to your front door!
Do you see what Clare has done for all of us? We never have to leave the comfort of our home to find that perfect shade of paint. Rain, snow, blistering heat? You don’t have to battle it because you’ll have paint arrive safely in this box that screams time to paint!
Since this was my first experience having paint delivered, I was really curious with how the paint would be packaged. It arrived in a box created specifically for the paint cans and even had clips on the cans so paint spilling wouldn’t even be an option.
If you don’t already have them, you’ll need paint supplies to begin and complete your project. When you order your paint, you’re also able to order any of the paint supplies you’ll need. I’m talking about paint trays, roller, extension polls, paintbrushes, plastic drop cloth, or just order the 5-Piece Paint Kit. Just an FYI, every shipment comes with a paint stick, paint can opener and an amazing paint guide that covers everything from beginning to end.
So far we know that Clare paint has the consumer in mind with saving time and providing a unique experience. But what about the quality? I can say after two successful home projects, Clare Paint is by far some of the best paint I’ve used.
This ultra-premium paint is also Zero VOC and GREENGUARD Gold Certified. What does this mean for you? It means this paint has low chemical emissions. I certainly noticed this the second I started painting our guest bathroom. Being in a smaller space, there wasn’t that overwhelming smell of paint which was so important to me and with having a little one running around. Especially when it came to painting his room as well.
When this is Clare’s mission, I know this is a business I’ll support time and time again as I turn my house into a home : We’re on a mission to make paint shopping easier and more inspiring, so you can create a home you love.
I totally understand if you want to go ahead and leave this post to head on over to Clare (if you haven’t done so already). Because I’m about to do the same to order a few samples. I have a wish list of colors I want to use in our home in 2019 and can’t wait to finalize a few things. If you’re just as excited as I am about Clare, let me know in the comments below which color you’ll be trying in your home!
