Bella Acrylic Paint

A few months ago, I was asked to come up with some do-it-yourself craft projects for the Bella acrylic paint line, which is now in all Home Depot stores. I had strict parameters of what I could and couldn't do, so I did my best to come up with cool projects, including an Independence Day-themed project (which was intimidating at first, but I actually kind of love the little planters I painted).


There are two sets of Bella paint - a metallic series, and a solid colors series. Each is very reasonably priced at around $6 a set -- perfect for small crafts projects, and kids projects.


here is what the back of the set looks like (the projects!)

The paints are located in the Martha Stewart section - see them towards the top of the bottom shelves?

  1. I will have to check our HD! Our Lowe's doesn't have the My Pantone line because it is a smaller store. Hoping that is not the case with these HD sets. :)

  5. Saw the paints a few weeks ago and was so tempted to buy them, but thought I should have a project in mind first. Didn't look at the back, but now I'll have to check it out. How fun!

  9. I saw these, AMAZING - I honestly think you should be on the front. I saw these and didn't think much about it, but that the price is a good value - the info on the back is the SELLER!

  10. awww, what a nice thing to say. thank you tricia!

    i know, the paints are actually a great value, and they're great to work with, too. if you think about it, any of those small crafts paints at michael's or hobby lobby are at least a dollar each, if not two dollars. you're getting 12 paints for only 6!

  13. Home Depot no longer has these paints. No longer selling Martha Steward Paints either. Does anyone know where I can buy the Bella Paint Sets?
