Yay to Friday night 🙌
If you’re planning your weekend then bear in mind it’s The Abbey Dash on Sunday which means we’re only open from 1pm. There’s 4 of us Seagulls running, me included. It’s my first ever 10k having never run more than 5k before I’m a little apprehensive 😬 .
.
Paint store open as normal tomorrow 10-4.

When no one in the paint industry makes a good sanding sealer anymore for staircases that’s LOW ODOUR and you ask your local Canadian paint manufacturer to make it for you. This stuff is awesome!!!! On Sale November @colourx_makeyourmark

Did you know that we also do drapery? Check out this gorgeous grommet top panel we put on our display wall! It turned out beautifully and it blocks some of the shaker noise from the back. 🙂

The aftermath of Jeremy’s paint mixing session yesterday! Mixing bespoke colours is a skill and can be quite time consuming. .
.
Please bear in mind that during busy periods we may well have to take your order and call you when it’s ready so plan ahead folks. Bespoke paint mixing takes time and we want to give you the best service so bear with us and be prepared to place an order for collection at a later date.

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.
