Valspar have asked us to find 250 Mumsnetters to test Valspar Premium Blend v700 Walls & Ceilings paint.

Here’s what Valspar have to say: “Put Valspar Premium Blend v700™ Walls & Ceilings Paint to the test. Blend v700 promises to give you ultimate coverage, pure colour, splatter resistance and allows walls to be wiped down without removing the paint. With excellent scrubbability and great stain resistance means Blend v700™ withstands the toughest household stains from felt tips to black coffee, making it perfect for busy homes and high-traffic rooms, such as children’s bedrooms, dining rooms and hallways. With long-term performance you can rely on, your colour will stay true for years to come.”

"As well as being available in a variety of finishes, including matt, mid-sheen and gloss, the Valspar unique colour matching technology can replicate any colour the eye can see - that's 2.2 million shades! Choose a colour that's personal to you and your family - be it the shade of a festive Christmas bauble, or a favourite ornament, simply take the item to your local B&Q and its exact colour can be scanned and recreated in paint form."

This product test is open to all UK MNers who are homeowners and would like to freshen up or add a splash of colour to their home and are available to paint their room and give feedback by the 11th April.

Selected testers will be sent a voucher for a 2.5L tin of Valspar Premium Blend v700 Walls & Ceilings, a Harris roller and tray set and a Harris brush which will be valid from the 20th March. Testers will be required to paint a wall or room in their home and then post feedback on a thread and complete a short survey by the 11th April at the latest. Testers will also be asked to share before and after photographs of their room or wall - please only apply if you’re happy to do this.

Sign up here.

All those selected who give the required feedback will be entered into a prize draw where one MNer will win a £300 voucher.

Thanks and good luck!

This would be perfect as I'm about to revamp our master bedroom with a decorating project.

SillyMoomin Tue 07-Mar-17 14:18:30

Oh goodness yes please!! I've got a massive streak of colour across the top of the ceiling where I painted the walls and needing to find a decent paint that won't drip on my head whilst I paint! grin

Mumofazoo Tue 07-Mar-17 16:39:16

This would be perfect as I have just finished painting my living room and want to start the hall next.

I would love to try this out as I am preparing to decorate our living room. It hasn't been done for over 10 years and really needs an update and some tlc

PickledLilly Tue 07-Mar-17 21:20:23

I've got a massive renovation project on my hands so I'm going to be decorating about 11 rooms over the next few years. It would be good to find a decent paint as I've been really disappointed in the quality of the last couple of tins I bought

InMySpareTime Tue 07-Mar-17 21:20:27

Signed up, the hallway desperately needs painting with a house full of teenagers marking it all the time!

AGrinWithoutACat Wed 08-Mar-17 06:02:30

Signed up - really want to freshen up the kitchen and paint sounds great smile

MrsJamin Wed 08-Mar-17 06:43:32

Yes please. Although TBH 2.5 litres doesn't sound a lot? You couldn't do a couple of coats of a room with that?

MrsJamin Wed 08-Mar-17 06:44:34

Oh actually we won't have painted by 11th April. My feedback stands though that I think you should be giving away 5L.

Caillou Wed 08-Mar-17 08:41:45

Would it be suitable for bathrooms?

NotMeNoNo Wed 08-Mar-17 08:43:47

I'll do it, got two very bright red/blue rooms to neutralise so that should be a challenge!

onadifferentplanet Wed 08-Mar-17 12:06:59

Hello MNHQ, Your post says you have to be a homeowner but the survey seems to say different. Does that mean there's no point applying if you are a tenant?

AmethystRaven Wed 08-Mar-17 13:11:23

I have completed the survey, sounds great! So if selected, we paint between 20th March and 11th April? If so, would a semi finished after picture be OK? It's just that I can't promise to have it all done by then with a 2 year old 'helping' but I could certainly get some done.

Mungobungo Wed 08-Mar-17 16:05:43

This is annoying! I've just used valspar paint to paint my living room wall!! It's bloody good I tell you!

FuckingHateRats Wed 08-Mar-17 16:19:13

Signed up!

Justwantcookies Wed 08-Mar-17 21:16:36

What area does 2.5l cover? Does not sound like a lot

PurpleDaisies Wed 08-Mar-17 21:38:19

We did two coats in our porch with 2.5l. It's not a huge room but we still had loads left. The coverage is excellent. It was almost perfect after one coat.

QueenOfTheWhiteWalkers Thu 09-Mar-17 00:44:33

I would love to take part in this!

caffeineanddryshampoo Thu 09-Mar-17 10:17:38

This would be brilliant, tackling the hallway next!

NC1nightstand Thu 09-Mar-17 17:00:21

I cannot tell you how timely this is! I need paint that can cover up my darlings graffiti at the top of the stairs and fast! I haven't used Valspar before but I love the adverts I've seen and the range of colours looks like my cup of Earl Grey! smile

Angelkimmy Thu 09-Mar-17 19:45:49

This would be great, want to do the kids bedroom...

CocoaLeaves Thu 09-Mar-17 19:50:01

I have just painted DD's room with this - it is gorgeous and great coverage. I am about to do DS' room next, the hall and the stairs, and the living room. So need more than 2.5 litres, and the bit about photos in this test puts me off. But I love this range anyway - nice and fresh colours.

AngelicCurls Thu 09-Mar-17 22:04:57

Signed up, just about to start our living room so this is great timing
