CIL Paint Demonstrates How a Little Paint Can Make a Big Difference

Campaign gives Canadians a chance to win big on a small budget

TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Beautiful room transformations are possible with small budgets,
according to the CIL® paint brand. CIL
recently rolled out the “Beauty on a Small Budget” campaign to
celebrate the relaunch of its CIL PREMIUM® paint line. The
campaign features a “small film
in which an even smaller room is transformed from drab to fab with CIL
Premium paint and a few accessories. Shot entirely in miniature,
the film set includes tiny furniture, tiny paint cans and tiny paint
supplies, including a paint mixer that stands eight centimeters tall.

“For many, painting or redecorating may seem costly. We wanted to create
something that was fun and showed how easy it is to create a big
transformation on a small budget,” says Alison Goldman, brand manager, CIL
paint, a brand of PPG Architectural Coatings. “All of the miniatures
featured, many of which were created on a 3-D printer, were real and
functional, which helped add to the charm of the film.”

CIL Premium paint, available exclusively at The Home
Depot, is also launching the “Beauty
on a Small Budget Challenge
,” a contest that gives consumers the
chance to show off their design skills. Canadians are challenged to
reinvent, redecorate or refresh a room or household item using CIL
Premium paint, which boasts a paint-plus-primer-in-one formula
and zero volatile organic compounds* starting at less than $30.
Participants can enter by uploading a photo that includes their
completed project alongside a can of CIL Premium paint to
their Instagram, Twitter or Facebook account using the #CILPremiumBeauty
hashtag. The winner will receive a $5,000 gift card for The Home Depot,
and entries are accepted now through Nov. 29, 2015.

“Whether you are on a budget, want to quickly complete a painting
project or are just looking to update your colour, CIL Premium
paint satisfies consumers’ need for a quality paint that is affordable,”
says Ashley Saltern, senior marketing manager, CIL paint. “The
relaunch of CIL Premium paint and this campaign help to
demonstrate CIL Premium paint’s quality and the
transformative power of a fresh coat of paint.”

Consumers can find CIL Premium paint, with new packaging, at the
lower price point of $29 until Nov. 29.
