Fab Freebie: Roll On Some Royalty

*** This giveaway is now closed. See who won below!***

Sorry for the late notice (travel is messing up my winner picking mojo!), but the random winner of this stencil prize is… Jen (who once “made a chevron painting with instructions I found on Pinterest and it turned out great”). Congrats Jen!

The love of stencils that first blossomed when we did our office walls only grew stronger when we tackled a couple of stenciling projects for our book (on pages 26 & 282). So in the spirit of sharing the love, this week’s prize comes from the maker of the very stencils that we used in all three cases – Royal Design Studio. We’re longtime fans of their modern shapes and patterns, and they’re starting you off with a $100 stencil gift card and throwing in a $100 “Stencil Success Kit” that includes the essentials for executing your stencil project. You’ll get a roller set, 7 brushes, and your choice of five stencil crémes. And to top it all off, how about a $50 paint allowance to the paint store of your choice? That totals a $250 kick in the pants to get your stencil on.

  • PRIZE: $100 stencil gift card to Royal Design Studio, plus a “Stencil Success Kit” and a $50 paint allowance to the paint store of your choice
  • TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “STENCIL ME!” and tell us…
  • BONUS QUESTION: … one DIY project that you’ve tackled once and are dying to try again. Is it a paint project? Something building related? Are you itching to take another whack at a crafting or sewing project?
  • GIVEAWAY CLOSES: Wednesday, Nov 14th at 8pm EST or at 10,000 entries (whichever comes first)
  • PRIZE SHIPS: We always beg every vendor to ship internationally but some companies are not legally able to vend things beyond the US (more on that here). This giveaway is open to The United States.
  • USUAL STUFF: One entry per e-mail address is permitted. The winner will be selected using random.org and announced on Thursday as an update to this post. That’s right, come right back here on Thursday for the announcement of our winner. Good luck…

Note: We aren’t paid or perked for hosting these giveaways, we just do ‘em to thank you awesome folks for stopping in. See our Giveaway FAQ page for more info. Pics courtesy of Royal Design Studio.

    Stencil Me!

    We built a loft bed in my oldest daughters room and am almost ready to do one for my youngest daughter. Just need to paint first.

  2. Heather says

    STENCIL ME! I’d love to take on another furniture refinishing project. I already have a number of pieces to refinish; just need to find the time!

  3. Ashley J says

    STENCIL ME! I’m dying to finish painting our living room – almost 3 years after we’ve moved in! Oy vey!

  4. Jerrika Jerome says

    STENCIL ME! I made christmas wreaths for family last year, and they turned out great, so I am hoping to DIY more christmas presents this year.

    STENCIL ME! I just framed out the main bathroom builder mirror, now dying to frame out the master bathroom mirror!

  6. Tracey says

    STENCIL ME. There are so many DIY projects I cannot wait to tackle – from your book and Ana White’s. One is painting some canvases with acrylic paint

  7. Nicole Grove says


    I hand-painted the skyline of NYC on my daughter’s wall in her bedroom. I’d love to tackle another free-hand project like that!

  8. Lauren O says

    STENCIL ME! I made some signs for my sister’s wedding using old pallets and I still have all kinds of extra wood. I keep saying I’m going to make some art for my own home but haven’t gotten around to it yet, unfortunately.

  9. Lindsey says

    Stencil me, pretty please!

    I just stenciled a pattern onto a scarf for a friend’s birthday. I’ve got an itch to stencil just about everything in sight now. I would love to stencil an accent wall, tea towels, throw pillows, et cetera.
