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!!

    I’m a beginner sewer and I sewed a dog bed recently. I’m looking forward to more sewing projects!

    Also, I’m DYING to stencil the walls around our wrap around fireplace!

    We recently painted our paneled bedroom–edging for days! But it turned out so beautifully it really inspired us to tackle painting the rest of the house!

    Currently DIYing some little Christmas trees for our December mantle. Made a forest this weekend, but now keep thinking of other materials to try and saying, “Hey, I should make one out of that too!”

    I have a ton of DIY projects I’m dying to do, from repaint our antique China Cabinet and Buffet that we just got (For $150 for the set! SCORE!), to repainting our builtins, to finishing our Master Bedroom. I’m really dying for someone to get married or have a a baby so that I can design and DIY some invites. That was my favorite thing that I did for my wedding.

    For my wedding this summer, I sewed a pennant banner (or is that bunting) … actually a bunch, but I asked my new MIL to finish them — and I haven’t sewed since! I want to definitely get back into sewing and make some additional curtains for our house, be able to make quilts, etc.! Even though I hadn’t used a sewing machine since I was a little girl, it was just so much fun and the results were so immediate.

    Actually it would be stenciling! I did it to my room as a kid, but would like to try a “grown-up” version this time!

  7. Amy says

    Stencil me! I stenciled the walls of our master bedroom closet and I cannot wait to do the rest of the closets in the house. It is such a nice “surprise” every time you slide the barn door open (which is another DIY project we have planned for the kitchen).

    I just made my daughter her very first jumper last month, and then my mom surprised me with some playful corduroy fabric to make her another one. I already picked out a new pattern with more buttons and a contrasting hem this time!

  9. Stephanie B. says

    We built some end tables for our living room and they turned out pretty fun (made from old apple crates)…but the next table I’d like to tackle is for the dining room!

    Reupholstering and/or cushion making. I can see a window seat in my mind’s eye, now I’d like to actually see and sit on it!!
