GIVEAWAY: “RePurpose with Cari, Hanky Panky”

In the Oct/Nov issue of MaryJanesFarm, “Hanky Panky” (on newsstands Sept. 15), I led you here to my daily journal for a chance to win samples of Cari Cucksey’s RePurpose Chroma•Color ReColor Paint in my favorite color combination, turquoise and red.

Cari, the star of HGTV’s Cash & Cari,


“is an antiques matchmaker who runs estate sales, operates a vintage store, and refurbishes just about anything she can get her hands on,” according to her website, Eventually, when people began asking her about where to buy paint for their repurposing projects, she created her own paint and stain line. RePurpose Chroma•Color ReColor Paint is a water-based paint and primer in one with low VOCs that creates a soft, smooth finish and comes in 25 colors. And Cari’s water-based RePurpose ReColor Tinted•Tincture Stain comes in 12 colors.

Enter to win two 4.5-oz “Try-It Size” samples of Chroma•Color ReColor Paint, one in turquoise and one in red, by telling me what you plan to repurpose in the comments below. I’ll toss your name into a hat and draw a lucky winner in mid-November, when the Oct/Nov issue expires on newsstands. Stay tuned for more magazine-related giveaways!

  1. Terry Steinmetz says:

    If I win the paint, I’d like to re-purpose an old milk can that I purchased at a garage sale last year. It would look great at my campsite to put my campfire forks and pie makers in!

  2. Winnie Nielsen says:

    I will have to try and catch a “Cash and Cari” show on HGTV. She reminds me of Flea Flip with Lara from ABC TV (I think?) It is amazing what great rehabs people can come up with. Totally useful and out of the ordinary! At this moment, a specific idea of what to repurpose is missing, but I keep thinking an old cabinet for the porch would be fun to act as storage for various things.

  3. marijka says:

    I’d love to add these paints to my ongoing (10 year!) armoire project. 🙂 I’ve been adding layer after layer of pattern to turn a plain hotel piece into a luscious Moroccan-inspired extravaganza!

  4. Linda says:

    I have an old chair on my front porch that is minus a seat, so I have a plant in a blue enamelware pot sitting in it. The paint would really spruce up the chair.

  5. Christine Erdman says:

    I would love to win the free paint as I have a very old antique chair that needs painting and would look adorable in those colors for my garden shed porch.

  6. Carol Vagher says:

    I have a garden bench that really needs a new paint job!

  7. jaylyn m says:

    Using scraps of wood and pallets, I want to build an outdoor kitchen for my kids (and myself) to play with!

  8. Denice Webb says:

    I have an old steamer trunk that stores fabric in my sewing room. It sure could use a facelift. Maybe a little red and turquoise paint would give it a little sparkle.

  9. Kristi Erck says:

    I would love to paint an old wooden display for my miniatures that I collect!

  10. Judy k says:

    Oh! If i win the paints,i will re purpose my mothers 1960 kenmore sewing machine cabinet! It would be perfect…

  11. Dana says:

    Within a week of each other, I was given a couple “farmhouse” chairs — a Momma Bear size and a Baby Bear size. I’d like to paint one turquoise and one red — see if that catches the eyes of shoppers in my little antiques/collectibles booth! Yay!

  12. Michele stone says:

    If i win we plan to paint our kitchen table an chairs love restoring old things to make them new again. Something my husband an I like doing together 🙂

  13. Renee Fisher says:

    The trial-sized paints will be perfect to refinish an old wooden picture frame for my very first pastel painting. It’s of a line-up of old canning jars in various sizes and colors that hold staples on my kitchen counter. I loved the challenge of painting the jars to look “see through” like real glass!

  14. Sharon Wegmeyer says:

    I have a number of projects in mind! A simple little dresser purchased at a garage sale as well as an old-fashioned folding chair: both are now just tired varnish – they need some pizzazz!

  15. Ashley Christensen says:

    If I win the paint, I would love to re paint a vanity that I found online. The middle flips up and reveals a mirror on the lid and a secret storage area!

  16. Dawn Overholt says:

    I have refinished items in the past but had to leave my supplies in Florida when we moved to TN. It would be nice to have some new paints for the next project.

  17. karen sanford says:

    I would love to win Cari’s paints! Red and turquoise are truly my favorite colors.I plan to paint my Mother’s old drrssor in turquoise and my porch swing red!!!

  18. Donna says:

    My re-purpose plan is to paint the dinning room chairs that were in my parents house for years. I think the colors will make them come back to life yet still be able to have the great memories of the family dinners sitting around the table on the family farm.

  19. JAN WESTON says:

    I would like to try my hand doing a redo on an old end table. It is light oak and has a v shape shelve. Help me make it “mine”.

  20. Amanda Warren says:

    Would live to use it on a dresser (re•purposed) for my daughter! The colors look very clean and vibrant!!

  21. Joyce Huber says:

    I would repurpose and old end table.

  22. Kathleen says:

    I can’t wait to use the paint for my kitchen table chairs- they are so loved and just need a little refreshing:) I love repurposing furniture – love the funds and deals at the habitat humanity restore – great deals and the money goes towards the good works at habitat for humanity- bonus:)

  23. Christine says:

    I use cardboard dulcimers for teaching my kindergarten students. Most were painted, but a couple weren’t. Since the dulcimers live on my classroom wall, it would be fun to paint one red and one turquoise to make them really stand out (the others are sort of a barn red.)

  24. Heike says:

    i just purchased this fabu round dining room table with drawers and a secret compartment! That is my next paint/re-purpose project!

  25. Heather (nndairy) says:

    I inherited an old chest that I want to keep blankets in in my living room. It’s been used through the years and has a lot of scratches and a few chips out of it. I think this paint would be a great color combination to spruce up the old chest!

  26. Lauren Akridge says:

    Love the colors! Would use on a Chippendale garden bench.

  27. Linda Harris says:

    I would redo my end tables and coffee table I been wanting to tackle for sure,

  28. Sarah Wilson says:

    I have an old, solid wood arm chair that was made for a mental institution in Maine. It weighs a ton…and wants to be happy and red ;)!

  29. Chris Davis says:

    I have an old dresser, nice and solid but soooo ugly with many peeling layers of old nasty paint. I would love to use this to make it lovely again!

  30. I love “Cash and Cari” and would like to try her paints. I do a lot of crafting so these paints would be great!

  31. Jeanne says:

    I would love to win the paints for 2 kitchen chairs that I have. We are building a house, and I am working on the furniture for the dining room, using an antique square table from my husband’s uncle, along with a corner bench that I found at a resale shop, and a splash of color on the 2 chairs would be perfect!

  32. christy wilkinson says:

    i have a vintage picnic basket that is looking a little shabby.

  33. Vanessa Ferrell says:

    We have a tiny pop up camper that we pull with our motorcycle. We are getting new canvas, putting in a new table, and I will make new cushions. The turquoise paint would freshen up the ceiling, and the red would go on the wooden box that holds camping supplies.

  34. Dawn says:

    Repurpose a bench into a quaint storage container

  35. I plan to repurpose a small closet. Thank you for the giveaway. 🙂
