It's Like Christmas All Over Again!

Don't you love surprises? They're the best! Well, unless they're bad surprises, and then not so much...

But luckily this a good surprise!

Awhile ago ScotchBlue reps contacted us asking us if we'd be interested in trying out some of their new ScotchBlue Painter's Tape with Edge-Lock Paint Line Protector. Kind of a mouthful, but basically it's special painter's tape treated so that there's perfect, crisp and clean lines once the tape is removed after painting.

Excited? Boy-oh-boy, we couldn't wait to receive our samples in the mail!

A few weeks later a huge box arrived on our doorstep. Since we had done most of our Christmas shopping online, we thought that it was just another gift for someone else.

Until we opened it, and found that it was an awesome gift - for us!

Just picture us opening the box and then a look of surprise and then glee crosses our faces as we oohhhed and aahhhed over the generous painting kit we received. (and there may or may not have been jumping and hooting involved)

Inside the box there was an assortment of nearly everything we'd need to get started on a painting project - a paint roller, tray, 3 different types of tape (for various surfaces), some wax paper (for stenciling), and something I loved as soon as I saw it - an inspiration book! Chock full of all types of projects you could do for painting treatments with the ScotchBlue Painter's Tape with Edge-Lock Paint Line Protector.

Here's a few of my favorite techniques from the inspiration book:

We're seriously pumped about it. You couldn't tell at all, could you?

Needless to say, we'll soon be tackling a fun painting project here in Casa de Magruder in the near future. As in, this weekend (told ya we were excited!).

Stay tuned for more on that upcoming adventure, and also for a future giveaway where you could win your own sample of ScotchBlue Painter's Tape with Edge-Lock Paint Line Protector for free!
