It’s not about knowing everything.
-
It’s not about being the best at everything.
-
It’s about staying self-aware and open-minded.
-
It’s about ADAPTATION.
-
A year from now, we should NOT be the same person we are now.

You don’t have to know how.
-
You have to know why.
-
Then you have to GO.
-
Then you have to adapt.
-
Forever.

Here’s my boy and his friends causing havoc in the paint store! .
.
Back to school today, sure there are lots of parents doing a jig and lots who are sad that the summer’s over. I’m in the middle- looking forward to routine but sad for him to see his lazy days go. .

If you now have some time to think make yourself a cuppa and check out our Crowd Funding campaign and bag yourself a perk! Link in bio above ⬆️

Miserable, wet, dank day in Leeds; Brightened by Ruksar and his love of paint and excellent talking skills! He takes a lot of pride in his knowledge of paint and is happy to impart his wisdom to anyone who will listen.
.
.
Have you visited Seagulls over the weekend? What have you been painting? We love to see where our paint ends up.
.
.
Don’t forget we’re also open tomorrow (10-4) for all your painty needs. Oh and if anyone has the time and wants to Paint our ceiling then we’d be very grateful!

Anyone for lime green? This is the start of the mix so not final colour. It seems that lime green is coming back into vogue for kitchens. Would you consider it for yours? .
.
It’s interesting to see the colour trends that come and go over the years. I think the most memorable, popular and prolific colour combo was duck egg blue and chocolate brown, inspired by #dulux about 10 years ago. Literally they were the only 2 colours customers wanted! Glad these trends and fads move on.

Popped into work with my boy today who decided a bit of counter flossing was in order. I’m thinking @lyndon.wallace needs a bit more practice but top marks for effort 😂😂😂 just a shame Rob and Ruksar didn’t want to join in! .
.
If anyone has some spare time and are handy with a paint brush we’re looking for someone to paint our new ceiling.... DM us if this is you.

Writing our Crowd Funding appeal has made us reflect on how far we’ve come and how much younger we all look 🙄. Getting out the old press cuttings and photos has created a few giggles in the office this morning!
. .
.
Back in the day there was funding available for Third Sector organisations to establish and deliver recycling and reuse projects. With a grant from The Lottery we were able to move into our current premises (2006), purchase a van and start collecting paint from the Household Waste Sites.
.
.
On reflection it’s amazing what we’ve achieved. Having spent a couple of years drinking wine and wondering what we might do, then a short spell in a little office with a damp cellar and collecting paint in my car. We didn’t know anything about paint let alone how to reprocess it but 14 painty years later we’ve worked out a methodology, have a 5 year contract with Leeds city Council and last year we collected 400 tonnes of paint. .
.
It’s time to move to the next phase of our journey so click on the link above, read all about it and jump on board. .

One of my favorite things about being in this business (@mycolorize ) is seeing the results of hard work and talent. Here is a #Repost from my buddy Rick and @rjmpainting after a recent kitchen transformation.
-
A new kitchen doesn’t have to mean a small fortune and a full renovation. Paint is the fastest way to a new space!

Another kitchen transformed!

Color: Tapestry Beige (OC-32), Satin finish.

Rick is one of our latest volunteer recruits. He’s tried a bit of everything and thankfully has decided he likes the paint store (it’s not for everyone as it can feel quite pressured mixing paint and serving customers). His gentle soul fits right into Seagulls life and like all our regulars he’s become part of the team. Thanks for your time Rick, we really appreciate it 🙏

Do you begin to get anxious around dinner time on Sunday?
*
Do you wake up with dread on Monday morning?
*
The way you feel about Monday tells you everything about how you feel about the life you lead.
*
I love Monday.
*
I used to hate it.
*
My feelings about Monday changed my life.
*
What would excite you to get up and attack the week ahead?
*
Life is too short to passively spend 5/7th of it doing shit you hate.

My favorite part about being in business is working with like minded people.
*
I’m energized by people working their asses off towards a vision.
*
Business is not a competitive land grab.
*
It’s not an I win and you lose situation.
*
Long term sustained success is an US game, not a me or you game.
*
The real competition is within.
*
How good can I be for our team and our customers?
*
How many people I can impact and lift up and support along my own journey?

You’re looking at 2 individuals discussing ideas to move their businesses forward.

We picked out some of our favorite paint tint art photos and had them enlarged and then framed them. So happy with how they look. #tintart #cheapdecor #paintstorelife

Thanks Nicky (from @doneupnorth)for showing us your freshly painted kitchen, thanks to our free paint giveaway a few weeks ago. Spearmint is a really fresh and zingy colour.
.
.
Have you gotten round to your weekend projects? I always have so many good intentions and then don’t bother (I’d much rather read Harry Potter with my boy). Nicky’s feed is worth checking out for her amazing upcycled furniture and unique style.
.
.
Although we don’t have any paint giveaways on at the moment our paint is very very cheap so it makes decorating affordable: £5 for 2.5 litres and £9.50 for 5 litres- total bargain 🤩
.
.
.
We’re open today 10-4. Oh and remember to share your pics, we love to see where our paint ends up.

Thanks to Nick at H’s Wayzata for Tint Art Tuesday. He captioned it “Cholesterol Daydream.”

I love this part of my job... getting to work with tint, the colour component of paint. In each of these containers there is enough colourant to turn the paint to each of these colours on the cards. Getting the tint seperate is a great way to go about it if you’re doing a mural or art. This way you can mix colours to different strengths and tones, quite fun once you get the hang of it 🙂 #paint #colour #art #housepaint #waterbasedtint #duluxtint #dulux #colourcards #colourchips #paintstorelife #tint #colourconsultant

Just a little peek into my everyday life.....
~
Picking paint colours all day everyday but even as an ‘expert’ sometimes I don’t nail it....
~
This client I wasn’t confident so I made them test it first & thank god because it was supposed to be gray but it was SO blue!
~
Lighting & paint are a wild combination and it’s important to test paint in the room it’s going in!
~
Any who there’s your #TipTuesday for today!!

Sunday mornings should be about lying in and pottering around the house. Not for me today, I’m off on a Beavers canoeing trip! .
.
How gorgeous does this shelving house look? It’s been in my boys bedroom for years housing his treasures and Lego figures! It came off the wall for decorating but has now gone back on his wall. I think it looks so lovely for housing lots of plants, I’m commissioning another. Anyone else want one? Our friend who makes them is happy to make lots! .

This made my day! When I made the move to NY for a new opportunity I left a lot of great people behind. The lessons they taught me and the bonds we created will always remain. .

This is my buddy Jacob from @repaint_me . One of my old customers from Maine, in my old store, wearing my new shirt 😬😎. Haha. Thanks for the support! .

You can also check out his new venture @mountainpasslifecoaching Best of luck my friend. .
Let the journey be fun. .
