Scotch Blue 3m Painters Tape Giveaway

I have had kind of a love/hate relationship with painters tape ever since we owned our first home and I picked up my first paint brush.

When it worked great I love that it helped me keep a straight line about the trim, but most of the time it was more work then what it was worth.

I'm in the process of convincing my husband that we should darken all our oak, and dump the beige walls for sunny yellow throughout our whole main floor. Could definitely use some good tape!

Hi! I would like to try and paint stripes in my daughters rooms. A good tape would really help me out!
Thanks!

Good luck with the potty training, too!

omw! I just started down the paint trail. it took me 4 days to paint my daughter's old room from purple and lime green to white. I will be using it for my craft room. Confession: I did not tape at all. Like so you on other paint project it was a wist of time, and because I have lots of storage/furniture/craft STUFF I'm hoping no one will notice.
However, my list of upcoming projects include two bathrooms, down stair and up stair hallways, laundry room and basement. If I want it to look better than my craft room, I will surely have to use tape.Thanks for a chance win Scotch's Painter Tape with Edge Lock Paint Line Protector!

Big ugly white walled bathroom, screaming for some color and love.

Christina said...

I have about 3 projects I could use this on RIGHT NOW! :) I love this stuff! I also really want to try stripes...

Lori said...

I try to always keep one of those rolls in the house. Great stuff.

SusieE said...

I'm converting my "big boy" room into a teen room. Why do kids grow up so fast!

Courtney M. said...

My husband and I just bought a 1906 Queen Elizabeth Victorian house. Everyone room in the 3,300 sq. ft house needs to be painted. Needless to say , we are going to go through a LOT of tape. :)

Krysstyllanthrox said...

I could use this when I repaint the master bedroom from a very pale green to a beautiful gray. Lots of doors, lots of windows, lots of trim that all need their lines protected.

North of 25A said...

Perfect timing for us, since we are planning on painting our bathroom using that shading striping technique that needs LOTS of tape.

Stephanie said...

We're moving and we have to paint our apartment back to "bland beige" or we loose our deposit!

Meredith said...

It's time to paint the upstairs TV room and extra bathroom. I always tape the moldings and the ceiling so having free tape would be a big help!!

Sharon @ Elizabeth & Co. said...

Need to paint my bathroom. Thanks for the giveaway!

Busy Moms Smart Kids said...

I'm going to soon be painting my laundry room! This tape would be perfect!

Beautiful Haven said...

We are moving soon, and the first room with be our nursey! The painter tape will come in handy.

Cherie said...

Wow... I will be doing my kitchen soon and living room. I have always used painters tape on the molding and such. Still a pain with popcorn ceilings! Anyone have a trick for that?

SMD said...

Christy Johnson Photography said...

We are in the process of painting our entire downstairs. It is quite the project! Sure could use some free painter's tape :)
On another note, I sure could use you moving back to Nashville, so I could commission you to paint some furniture for me. I am not handy/crafty that way AT ALL!

Katie Petro said...

Just bought our first house and there's a whole lot of painting going on around here...you name it, it needs paint! :)

Becky Vaughn said...

Dining Room.. It is horrible

Rebecca said...

After the bed frame my FIL is building me is done, I can clean out my new sewing/craft room and I'd love to get rid of the boring off white in there!

Nancy said...

I need to paint our master bath!

Tina said...

Sooo many projects...so little time!! We will be painting our bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen, as well as putting up and painting board and batten in the coming weeks!!! Could definitely use some painters tape for these projects!!

Tara said...

I'm going to paint my bathroom.

Rmomof3 said...

Well, we are moving and I have promised 3/4 of the blessings to paint their rooms PURPLE/GREEN, PINK, and PURPLE.... respectively.... not to mention a few furniture items I have my talents waiting to tackle.... a family room, and a master bath.... then the baby might like to have new paint in her room (sage green).... etc. You get the idea!
Thanks for the contest.

Liz said...

An upstairs bedroom-again. Maybe this time I will choose the correct color.

Cassie @ Primitive & Proper said...

i don't actually use painter's tape when painting walls- just carefully cut in with an angle brush. BUT, i always use scotch blue on my furniture projects where i add designs like stripes or diamonds or chevron!

Laura @ Just For Love said...

Hi Katie : )

Thank you SO much for the kind words you left on my blog. They mean very much to me. I am thankful to have made so many meaningful relationships through blogging. I had no idea I would meet and connect with so many caring people!

I totally understand about waiting on another pregnancy. I was a little apprehensive about it myself at first. It's definitely been an emotional roller coaster at times. I'm sure the hormones aren't helping!

I suppose I finally came to a place where I felt like life needed to go on. I know my mom would want me to have more kids. It's still not the same without her though.

I still think of you often, and I hope things are going well for you and your family. You're all in my prayers!

Thanks again for the sweet comment : ).

Lots of love,
Laura

I have a few places I need to paint, but the place I'd probably paint first is our stairwell to the basement. The previous owners had it painted 3(!) different shades of white, and it would be nice if it was all one color instead. :)

Lee Ann said...

There is a lot of things you can do with painters tape besides painting. I used some recently to help me baste a quilt. Ha!

I'd save this painters tape for when we move as I KNOW we'll probably have to paint! Ha!

Christina said...

Well my daughters room is SO in need of a paint job! And not to mention that I reallllly want to repaint the dining room :)

Cindy said...

We will be painting my daughters room soon and I really want to paint my bathroom. This would sure help!

Tara Lauren said...

I will be painting my bathroom WHITE!

HR Mom said...

I need to paint both my kids rooms. We moved in almost 6 years ago and the youngest child still has a nursery theme (he's almost 6) and my oldest now 7 wants a black room??? we won't do that but something simialr?!?

Erin said...

We need to paint the entire downstairs after a remodel and some decorating by the kids (read: Pen, marker and lipstick on the walls)This would be so helpful to use :-)

Jensen Family said...

I am working on a red wall that meets with a white wall. This tape would be awesome...especially since it actually works!!

Rebekah said...

What room WON'T I try this in is a better question! We bought a new house this past summer & the walls are screaming at us for some color!

PS. I am TOTALLY with you on the toliet seat thing!

heatherburlingame said...

I am finally starting to think about pain colors for our master bedroom!

Kathy said...

I need to paint our cabinets in our kitchen, so winning this would be perfect! Thanks for the giveaway!

Courtney said...

We are currently doing a kitchen makeover. The tape would be oh-so-handy!

PS - please share what product you used to paint your cabinets. We are toying with the idea... I've heard so many horror stories.

Jennifer said...

We are getting ready to purchase our first home. We haven't picked it out yet, but I already know there will be much painting going on!

LaLa said...

We will be painting our nursery after 4 long years waiting to paint it! Our little bundle will be here in July and I cannot wait to get started on the nursery! :D

Melissa said...

I am going to be painting my dining room that has both crown molding and wainscotting. Lots of taping to be done!!!! Can't wait!!!! :::shutter and weeping:::

SLD said...

Just in time! We are moving and have to paint the entire house! Deep breaths....we'll get through it....could use some straight lines and great painter's tape :)

I am always painting! Love it! I Really NEED to finish my guest room before my father in law visits! (Hopefully your giveaway is still open!!) either way, I enjoy your blog!!

Jenn Erickson said...

I love the 3M blue painter's tape! I use it every time I paint, although it's been a while since I've tackled a big project....not that my old house doesn't need it! I live in an 1893 Victorian, and the room that probably needs a makeover the most is the bathroom on the third floor. Someone put up some tacky floral wallpaper in the 80s and it's begun to peel and discolor. A fresh coat of paint would make all the difference in the world!
