Do you ever wish you could see how a paint color will look with the rest of your decor before taking the brush to the wall? Perhaps more importantly, do you wish a color expert could analyze your living space and pick a hue for you? Behr Paint is here to make that problem-solving dream a reality with their new sweepstakes giveaway.

From June 22 to July 2, 2020, Behr is accepting applicants for their “Mini Makeover” program. The paint company will be gifting four grand prize winners a mini replica of the desired space they’re looking to transform, which will come painted in the colors chosen by Behr experts and money to buy the paint for your IRL space.

Here’s how it works: when you send in your application, the team asks for well-lit wide-angle and/or panoramic photos of the space you’d like to transform. In addition to photography, you’ll also submit a brief description of the room and the mood you’d like the new coat of paint to achieve. Any other color inspiration to help the experts come to a decision is welcome.

If you’re selected as one of the winners, the Behr experts get to work. After analyzing the existing colors in your space, they’ll select colors from Behr’s palette that will mesh best with your existing look. From there, they’ll recreate your living space in the form of a custom-made dollhouse, leaving no small details behind (artwork, ceramic bowls, lamps…you name it.)

Once the painted replicas are completed, they’re shipped off to the owners. Behr experts will explain to each winner why they selected their colors, factoring in elements like already existing furniture, the amount of windows letting natural light in, overall dimensions, and more.

As if getting a color picked and receiving a dollhouse replica isn’t enough, the four grand prize winners will receive a $200 gift card to Home Depot to go toward paint costs. As an additional incentive to enter, 12 other people will win $50 gift cards.

So if you need some serious color inspiration for that one room, throw your hat into the ring and your application into the sweepstakes. Head over to the contest landing page for all additional details and how to apply.
