Project clock: 30 days!
Assignment: Paint somewhere unexpected!
Welcome to September's Project of the Month! We've been partnering with Valspar for the last two months to undertake some serious yet completely accessible home paint projects. This September give yourself a secret pleasure and celebrate the less visible aspects of your home: the inside of your kitchen cabinets, closets and dresser drawers, your ceilings and stair risers. Make people ooh and aah at your attention to detail. As always, we'll be checking in on your progress later this month, so make sure to send us pictures. Jump below for instructions, submission form, and more ideas!
• Need inspiration? Check out this post on surprising and inspiring places to paint.
• Start a notebook with all your ideas and project plans. Valspar's Online Notebook will help you create, edit and store your current paint projects.
• Do something daring. Bright pink in the closet? A vibrant yellow backsplash? Explore a rainbow of colors (and many more!) with Valspar's Color Charts.
• Don't get too little or too much. Use Valspar's Paint Calculator to help you determine how much paint you're going to need.
• Get to work!
Rules: The September Project of the Month begins today and runs through September 30th. Entry forms will be accepted until 12:01 AM on October 1st, 2009. All entrants will be eligible to win a prize from Valspar. Winners will be chosen at random, not based on the skill or design of their paint job.

Winner must claim their prize within three business days after the date of notification of such prize. A winner's failure to respond to the prize notification within the specified three business days will be considered to be a forfeiture of the prize and an alternate winner may be selected from the pool of eligible entries.

To enter, you must be a U.S. resident, age 18 or older. Employees, partners and vendors of Apartment Therapy and their immediate family members are not eligible to enter. We will disqualify any entries that we believe are generated by scripts and other automated technology. When applicable, the winner may be required to execute and return within five business days an Affidavit of Eligibility and a Liability and Publicity Release to be eligible for the prize or an alternate winner will be selected.
