ScotchBlueTM & YOU Renovation Rescue Crew contest with Amy Matthews

Is your family room the last place your family wants to hang? Is your bedroom not the romantic getaway you’ve always envisioned? Does your kitchen have good bones but lack the space to entertain more than two? Enter the ScotchBlueTM & YOU Renovation Rescue Crew contest, where one lucky grand-prize winner will receive a room makeover valued up to $15,000 and the exclusive opportunity to work with Amy Matthews on an episode of DIY Network’s Sweat Equity.

Amy Matthews is a real deal licensed contractor bringing renovation realities to homeowners on her hit shows Sweat Equity, This New House, Bathroom Renovations and Blog Cabin. “Painting continues to be the most popular DIY project because it makes such a big impact on a small budget,” says Amy Matthews. “A gallon of paint to create a unique design treatment can do wonders for a tired space with just $100 or less, a little planning and some know-how.”

Inspiring Design Ideas using ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape

  • For an invigorating look, create accent wall frames and a chair rail that will instantly transform a space. Using project plans found at, creating a personal oasis is as simple as choosing colors to suite personal tastes. Try a tropical splash of color with the 2010 Color of the Year, Pantone Turquoise (PMS 15-5519), to create a luminous, island-inspired getaway.
  • Tweens and teenagers are notorious for wanting to display their own sense of style – and their bedrooms shouldn’t be an exception. Create a fun, personalized headboard by applying ScotchBlue Painter’s Tape to form their initial directly above the bed. Then paint over it with their favorite color, let dry and remove the tape.
  • For a wild idea, paint zebra stripes on a board for a cool piece of artwork. Paint a base color on a board and let dry. Then lay down the tape in diagonal stripes. With a utility or precision knife, cut off the edges of the tape in a random, wavy pattern. Remove the cut edges and paint over the entire board to seal the edges of the tape. After it’s had time to dry, paint once again with your accent color. Allow that coat to dry and remove the tape.
