I Won, I Finally Won Something!

I love to read home decor blogs, and I sometimes enter contests to win prizes. 

I usually don't win contests of any kind, I have the worst luck.  I could enter a contest with one other person, and still lose!
 
But, lo and behold, I won something on this cute home blog that I like to read, Finding Fabulous.


I won two rolls of Scotch Blue Edge Lock tape.  Plus, the company threw in a blue plastic doo-hicky for smoothing down the tape.  OK, it wasn't a huge prize, but I was thrilled because like I said: I never win anything!

Even Handy Man said: "You actually won something?? Wow!" 

We haven't painted anything in a few months; but we've definitely used this tape.  Here's an example of how we used it to paint separate colors in Handy Boy's room:
We later painted the window white.  Someday we'll show more photos of this room.

Here, we used it to make a crisp line between the wall and ceiling color in our bedroom:
You would not believe how much we have painted in this house and our previous two houses.  Walls, ceilings, doors, trim, baseboard, etc etc.  This blue tape is great for making a nice, crisp edge.  

Have you used this blue tape, or a similar type of tape for painting?  What's your favorite brand?

I never win anything either.... ever! I was starting to think those give aways were fake. I hate when I'm in the middle of a painting project and run out of painters tape and have to run to the store and buy more so for me, this would be an awesome win! You can never have enough painters tape. Congrats on the win!!

Congrats on winning the tape. It is not the million dollar lottery, but still exciting all the same. Your stairs look great. I can see them in your header. You had the fun of working on two open sides - I only had one open side on my staircase. They look great.
My best- Diane

Congrats on your win! Taping before painting takes some time but is totally worth in the end. Your room looks great!

I came across your blog while researching various types of "painter's tape" and I actually quite like this site. I'm not a blogger, so I really do not get into all of this stuff, but would still like to know how the Edge Lock tape compared to the other types of tape you've used for painting. I am an avid painter myself. If I see a bare wall w/ no paint, I HAVE TO PAINT IT, lol. I absolutely love to paint rooms and such, although I do have bi-lateral carpel tunnel and tennis elbow, I can still paint a little at a time. Talk about taking forever to paint a room; I like the queen of "taking forever", lol. Ok, that was really my question and only comment was about the tape, it's just that I talk a lot so therefore, I type a lot, lol. Thanks for the information you share,Ang

Angie Baby, I hope you come back and read this, as you didn't leave an email address. The Edge Lock tape worked great. We've tried several different type of tapes over the years. The "name brand" tapes tend to work better.
