ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape & Home Depot “Get It, Got It, Go” Summer Blog Hop

By Kate Riley May 8, 2014

Hello everyone! Today I’m excited to announce a second round of the fabulous DIY event I hosted last year in partnership with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and The Home Depot. You’ll recall last year two dozen bloggers got creative with ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape and products from The Home Depot and I showcased all of the projects in the “Ready, Set, Paint” Blog Hop of 2013.

Well great news, the event is back and this summer there will be even more projects to share. This summer’s “Get It, Got It, Go” Blog Hop will include three dozen bloggers and their creative DIY projects and I’ll be hosting links to all the projects right here – the projects featured will help inspire this year’s painting season!

I’ve been using ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape for years, it’s my go to for all things paint related when I need to tape off drawers for furniture makeovers or lines for painting stripes. For me, it won’t peel up any layers of paint underneath and still seals for protection or perfect lines, I even use it around the house to help evenly hang artwork!

This concludes the Summer Blog Hop, thank you ladies for your creativity!

I am proud to be a 3M sponsored blogger, and, as part of my responsibilities, I get the opportunity to evaluate new products from ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape. Opinions are my own and additional product used in the project were selected by me.



  1. I’ve been using Blue painter’s tape for my projects as well. It’s got a super clean border when removing the tape and paint doesn’t crack too. I’ve been using the tape all over the place with some projects I’m trying out.

  2. The Color Block Umbrella Table inspires me because it is such a functional yet pretty piece.

  3. I love the diamond painted rug! I’ve never thought to paint a rug before!

  4. It is such a simple idea, but I really like the faux frame paintings… a simple way to add clean but colorful artwork to your walls.

  5. I LOVE the BBQ storage rack. It’s awesome (and excellent BDay present inspiration!)

  6. Hmmmm….I love the painted out door rug and the Aztec Planter…cool! :)

  7. We just bought our first house, and board and batten is definitely on my mind! Such a big project, but it would really complete the vision I have for the house.

  8. The farmer’s market stand would be perfect on our back porch for our herb pots. I think I know what we’re doing this weekend…

  9. Definitely the outdoor rugs, possible painted or stained right on the concrete patio.

  10. The faux frame modern art project would be perfect for displaying one of my favorite artwork from my students!

  11. I love the painted planters! It looks like a project that even those of us that are not craft savvy could do.

  12. I love the workbench! My theory is if a work bench is pretty, I’ll do more work there!

  13. The striped workbench inspires me because I love the juxtaposition of the rustic wood with the modern white paint job.

  14. LOVE the board & batten walls project! I want to do this in a little hallway that connects my kitchen + living room to add some interest.

  15. I love the Aztec summer planter. I have a few planters on my back porch that could use a face lift just like this.

  16. I love the outdoor rug! It has been added to my project list this month. Thanks for the idea.

  17. I’m digging the Farmers Market Stand from Brooklyn Limestone! It’s time to up my DIY game a notch and give that a try.

  18. I would love to try the diamond Painted outdoor rug. I really want to spruce up my front porch.

  19. My mini dachshund would look just as cute in the Modern Pet Bed! That’s the project for me!

  20. I love the striped pots! How cute would it be to do some red white and blue stripes for the 4th?!

  21. That farmer’s market stand is adorable. That’s definitely a project I would love to try out!

  22. The farmers market stand is so cute! I would use it to hold herb pots. Great project!

  23. My favorite is the DIY Aztec Planter- Such a cool design using painters tape! I would have never guessed. Also- I have a plain planter at home that is begging for something a little more special than stripes. :)

  24. I think a painted rug would be perfect for my back porch AND some board and batten would look great in the entry way. Two projects were just added to the To Do list!

  25. Loved the rug and the flower pots!! This product is wonderful, we used it many times while building our last home!

  26. I have a roof-top deck outside of my home office that that a painted rug will do wonders for!

  27. That striped work bench is awesome! Modern, but still able to see the vintage lines underneath!! Well done.

  28. Definitely loving the board and batten, it’s been the one project I’ve had planned for well over a year but haven’t gotten to.

  29. I love the pet bed idea! No more foam beds being scooted around the floor!

  30. I really like the board and batten project as we are about to do the same in the hallway.

  31. I am loving the farmer’s market plant stand! I have a tiny yard and that would be a perfect way to utilize some vertical space.

  32. I’m dying to put up board and batten in our dining room – this gift card would allow us to do that!

  33. I can see getting my husband to get on board with one of my crafty DIY projects if it’s something to do with his BBQ tools! I love how that project jazzes up something so ordinary.

  34. That pet bed is adorable! I think it would be great in front of our low windows – just high enough for our cats to lounge and see out into the yard. I’d love to make one long one to go in front of the three windows in our living room, but those two would probably never leave it!

  35. I love the diamond painted outdoor rug. The colors are perfect and I’ve been in the mood to add a rug to our porch -this would be perfect.

  36. i love the diamond outdoor rug and the pretty planters! may have to get handy with my painters tape this summer too!

  37. I like the striped multi colored planters I also like the shop workbench.

  38. My family, friends, and I love enjoying time together on our front porch so I was especially inspired by Melissa of 320 Sycamore! She transformed her porch space into a pretty, fun, and relaxing space for her special friends and family time! Her paint color choices were beautiful and her metal table makes me want to go on a treasure hunt of my own! :)

  39. The spruced up summer porch looks so inviting! I really like the colors she chose.

  40. I love the painted outdoor rug also!! It would add color to my backyard patio and the blue tape leaves such a clean line, looks very professional!

  41. I love the board and batten walls. I’ve totally been considering doing this in my new home.

  42. I love the faux frame modern art – looks more ‘professional’ and makes any “art” pop! Thanks :)

  43. The pet bed is super cute! That would be my pick, but not sure if I have the skills!

  44. I love the board and batten look. I’m trying to convince DH to do this for our bathroom.

  45. Ooh, I love those board & batten walls! We just bought our first house – a little rancher with a long, central hall – and I think it could use just that to spice up the hallway. Here’s hoping!

  46. I love the painted outdoor rug. I have the rug from World Market … now I just need to paint!

  47. It’s gotta be the Board & Batten Walls. I’m hoping to do something along those lines in my bathroom!

  48. My husband and I try to be outside as much as possible during the summer months and the spruced up summer porch is absolutely the next project we need to take on. We have some good bones to work with and now just need to focus on making it more comfortable and add some fun elements to enjoy it to the fullest this summer!

  49. I love the Spruced up Summer Porch. I’m working on my Brooklyn Rooftop deck now and can use all the ideas and inspiration i can find!

  50. Definitely the rug . . . been thinking about doing a bedroom rug for . . . . years. Maybe the tutorial will push me over the nervousness. :-)

  51. I’m not a stripes girl but love taping off areas before painting to get a faster finish and I’ve used it on walls, planters, furniture and even once on upholstery to create some angles for printing typography areas before upholstering onto the furniture. Works great and Home Depot is always my source. I do need some kitchen updates and the look forward to all the new ideas! Thanks.

  52. just noticed that striped workbench, I am already thinking of how I can stripe something in my home! Love it.

  53. I need to utilize/organize my 1930’s Sear Catalog shed and that striped workbench would be a perfect fit. I could claim a corner for my gardening dreams.

  54. I love the rug, and the umbrella table. I desperately need to spruce up my outdoor living space!!

  55. Love the board and batten projects. Wishing to make this update to my dining room! Just did a plank wall look on the lower half of a small bathroom and hoping to continue these types of updates to the other rooms.

  56. The board and batten walls tug at me. I am going to put that up my stairs this summer. Another great use for painters tape: I use it to seal meat wrapped in butchers paper in the freezer. Never releases, seals beautifully and I can write on it! Fabulous product with sooo many uses!

  57. I love the BBQ Tool Storage Rack idea! What a great way to organize!

  58. I really like the striped bench workshop. Using the tape and executing the color block effect gives it a modern edge.

  59. We are signing papers on our new house today! Yipeee! We finally get to be homeowners and cannot wait to get started on projects! I lOVE the batten and board idea and want to do it in our entry way. Thanks for the giveaway!

  60. Between the Diamond Painted Outdoor Rug and Dog Bed and BBQ tool wood pattern I have so much to learn!! how exciting :)

  61. I use painters tape all the time for crafting and home improvement projects! I like the faux frame modern art idea… A fun simple project to do with the kid this summer :)

  62. I love the pattern on the BBQ Tool Storage Rack. I’m thinking of painting a similar design for a piece to hang in my office. Thank you for the beautiful inspiration!

  63. The project that most inspired me, I would have to say is the diamond painted outdoor rug and the doggie bed.

  64. I’m inspired by the board and batten walls. This project is on my to do list for our entry. Neither my husband nor I are DIYers so it will be our first “adventure”!

  65. Great giveaway! I love the faux framed modern art, but they are all awesome!

  66. Love the umbrella table! Doesn’t seem too complicated, and I love that colorblocked look. Cool idea!

  67. That outdoor painted rug is a great idea to extend the life of the outdoor rug on my deck.

  68. Love the painted rug! Already have a plain one I purchased a while ago from Crate and Barrel. I might try giving it some color with this idea.

  69. The board and batten wall wood be my pick! It’s on our to-do list for our daughter’s room.

  70. Love the outdoor rug. What a great way to spruce up my front porch and have fun doing this project too.

  71. I love the dog bed…..We have a labradoodle…….I wonder if I can make one to fit her?

  72. I really love the faux modern art frame idea…I have a few blank canvases that I need to use. I have the perfect place to put them too and can’t wait to get my 3 year old to help. He makes great “modern” art with great enthusiasm.

  73. I love the cute little dog bed. Now if I could just get my dog to lay in something like that instead of on the furniture…

  74. Love the Faux Frame Modern Art project! I’ve been wondering what to do with a blank canvas I have.

  75. The porch update is great – it’s inspiring me to do something to make my home more inviting :)

  76. I would love to use the delicate surface tape to update my stairs, like the striped workbench for inspiration.

  77. I love the painted rug- I have a rug I have been wanting to redo and use for my patio- now I have some inspiration!

  78. That entryway table makes me want to vamp up mine! I also need to remember to use the tape for all of the art i need to hang!

  79. I like the frame idea. It would be a great way to make kids drawings look like art.

  80. All of these projects truly inspire me to get busy and get something done. I love the Farmer’s Market Stand as it is just so me. Thanks for sharing all of these wonderful projects.

  81. I used Scotch Blue tape to make a harlequin pattern on my daughters wall. It worked perfect!

  82. Domestically Speaking’s painted diamond outdoor rug is something I could do and actually use!

  83. Melissa’s spruced up front porch has me inspired- I need to paint my front door, and I want to make a few tweaks on the front porch while I’m at it!

  84. I really like the modern pet bed idea. I am the volunteer coordinator for a local dog shelter and these beds look perfect for the summer. Not too hot, lifted off the ground – and I think our volunteers would love painting them!!

  85. I have used the blue painter tape for years and it always does the trick and comes off easily. I recently painted my hall bathroom cabinets white, and there was ALOT of taping in the bathroom. So worth it to get the white cabinets I’ve always wanted. Next up is painting the living room, dining room and master bedroom in shades of blue. Can’t wait!!

  86. Definitely inspired by the Color Block Umbrella project. I purchased mine without a base, and this is a good excuse as any to build one!

  87. The umbrella stand would be a great summer project for the new house (and the blue tape for all the inside painting that needs to happen!)

  88. I love the pet bed. It inspires me to make my own outdoor version for my doxi.

  89. The raised PET BED is such an awesome idea!! I love that you can clean underneath and customize it! My labradoodle needs this!!!!

  90. Love the DIY tape on the planters. I would love to do this to decorate my patio area.

  91. I love the board and batten projects! I’ve started some in my own home.

  92. I like the painted pot. One day I’ll have a backyard with beautiful painted pots all around.

  93. I have been wanting to put in board and batten somewhere in my house. I love the look!

  94. I like the farmers market stand, I just need to figure out where it would look good

  95. Wow! I love the front door that Melissa at 320 Sycamore did. The color is perfect!

  96. So hard to choose! I love the dog bed and the diamond rug, and…..

  97. I Love the patterned rug ! Gonna try that ! & I’ve been using this tape every since I was married to my 1st husband the painter , he swore by it !!!;)

  98. Those planters are adorable! We’ve been in this house for 4.5 years and still have so many projects we need to tackle. Rooms need to be painted, garage needs organizing, and just about everything outdoor you can think of…

  99. I loved the planting pots, you could do so many colors and designs!! Thanks for all the ideas.

  100. The outdoor rug project really inspires me to try to make one for my front porch!

  101. Love the porch – just bought a home and have a back deck to decorate. Great inspiration!

  102. Okay, I have some very plain pots that I’m growing herbs in. This inspired me to try painting them. I also love the striped work bench. I have a table that I need to paint. Maybe it needs some stripes?!

  103. I just moved and whenever I move I basically live at Home Depot. Love the giveaways.

  104. I love the Spruced Up Summer Porch from 320 Sycamore. I LOVE a pop of color on a front porch to bring personality to a house.

  105. Striped workbench! Need a workbench in the garage. Board & batten walls is a close second (love those!), but I couldn’t get the link to work. Woo hoo for giveaways!

  106. I’m loving the striped workbench and painted rug. Such great updates for summer!

  107. The different stains on the barbecue tool storage unit were gorgeous! I don’t need tool storage but I’d love to use that technique on something like a coffee table.

  108. Love the striped workbench and the board and batten walls. I would love those walls!

  109. I love the simplicity of the faux framed modern art! It makes DIY art look like high-art.

  110. I am in no way organized to keep my grilling tools on a rack, but I am particularly intrigued by Heather’s project. I would not have believed that different stain colors could be successfully segregated by painter’s tape – ESPECIALLY not when a stained area bordered an unstained area. I am impressed! This opens up entirely new possibilities in furniture refinishing.

  111. I would love to update our back porch similar to the Spruced Up Summer Porch!

  112. Ive been working on my patio so Melissa’s spruced up summer porch gave me some ideas :)

  113. I was very inspired by the outdoor rug project, I think I will be attempting to make one this weekend..thanks for the idea :)

  114. The faux frame on canvas paintings is a great idea!! Yes, frames can be expensive!!

  115. Loving the bench. Great giveaway. Great ideas. Thanks for the chance.

  116. The farmer’s market stand is a great makeover for my grandfather’s ferrier bench/tote!:)

  117. I love Randi’s color block umbrella table. She provided a great tutorial too.

  118. LOVE the painted rug! We just bought a new house, so anything to spice up the otherwise bland front porch is high on my list. :)

  119. I like the farmers market stand. Well, I like a lot of the projects but that one especially.

  120. I like the idea of the faux frame modern art project. Simple & requires no matting

  121. I don’t think I can choose just one! I love them all. My favorites? Board and batten and the farmer’s market stand.

  122. Ashley is my board and batten hero. This is what I’ve been wanting to do in my tiny bathroom too!

  123. The spruced up summer porch project has inspired me to paint out outside door a new color!

  124. I love the diamond block rug! So cute! I never knew tape would stick to a surface like that!

  125. These are all amazing. I want to make the farmers market stand, I’ve been looking for a piece of furniture like that. Why not make it?? :)

  126. The spruced up porch really inspires. My deck needs help. I feel motivated to tackle it now.

  127. I’d love to paint a piece of my porch furniture to give it a little color!

  128. The farmer’s market stand will look awesome on our back patio! Thanks for the inspiration.

  129. Love the board and batten walls. I want to do this somewhere in my house!

  130. I liked all the blogs. I love making stuff and see all exciting projects.

  131. I love Stefanie’s Farmer’s Market stand! So cute!! And love the home depot!

  132. Love the project of modern pet bed for the pooch.
    tcarolinep at gmail dot com

  133. I love the farmer’s market stand! So great for small patios like mine in an apartment complex that used vertical space. The chalkboard paint is a cute touch to label with the seasons! (Or with the rotation of a not-so-green thumbed gardener)

  134. I love the striped workbench! I’ve been meaning to do something similar with a vintage desk I have that’s seen better days.

  135. I am a huge fan of board and batten, but I think even I could paint the rug!! My husband and I just bought our first home so I am really excited to tackle new projects!

  136. I am completely inspired to tackle all of the wonderful projects! But if I had to pick one I would start with a striped indoor collection of herb pots painted with fresh spring blue hues!

  137. I love the idea of painting terra cotta pottery! I have an herb garden in all different sizes of terra cotta pots I’d love to give some color to.

  138. I love the “Aztec Inspired Planter” – it seems so simple, yet would look fantastic on our patio!

  139. I am inspired by the diamond outdoor rug. I have a sisal runner with a little color damage that could use this technique to cover the damage and make it new again.

  140. Hands down. Farmers Market Stand! We are moving in two weeks in our new home and this would look really cute in our backyard. So can’t wait to start decorating!!!

  141. Love the diamond patterned outdoor rug – would be great for my front porch!

  142. I adore the Farmer’s Market stand! It’s perfect for a gal like me who has a black thumb! That way, even if the plants die, they still look great on that stylish stand! ;)

  143. Love the Diamond Painted Outdoor Rug……never even thought of painting a rug. So cool and spruces up those plain “eh” outdoor rugs without spending big bucks!

  144. I love the striped workbench.
    It took something drab and dull and moved into a place I want to be category!

  145. Love the painted workbench, I think I could do that to look like a jeep grill! Off to buy some blue painter tape! Thanks home depot!

  146. I just love the dog bed!!! It’s always nice to add some flair to our fur babies belongings!

  147. Oooh, I love the Aztec Inspired Planters!! I would totally do that.

  148. I love the board and batten bathroom treatment. Great trick for not having to change out the baseboards.

  149. I have a boring tan outdoor rug just like that. What a great idea to paint it! I think I may do green, blue, and yellow instead of white because I have yellow pillows on our porch. Thanks for the idea!

  150. Really liked the diamond painted outdoor rug. I’ve been looking for a certain color combo rug & now I can do it myself

  151. Love them all – but I just love the simplicity of making a plain flower pot pop with stripes!

  152. Love the Diamond Painted Outdoor Rug! Want to try this technique on a textured rug, or anything else!

  153. Love the dog bed. I’ll have to build one much bigger for my standard poodle!

  154. Love the striped workbench, great inspiration for the our garage work area.

  155. I am very inspired by the Outdoor rug! I have been looking to makeover my patio and this would be perfect! Love it!

  156. I love the faux frame modern art idea for using the Scotch blue tape. This will be fun for not only little artists but myself included. Everyone can be successful using this process!

  157. The farmers market stand is Adorable.It has inspired me to recreate a similar project I’ve had in mind!!

  158. The painted pots would be a festive and great way to brighten up my deck!

  159. Melissa of 320 Sycamore’s front door looks great. Mine is next!

  160. I love the outdoor rug. This would add some much needed pizzazz to my deck.

  161. Loving the versatility that Scotch blue tape provides! I am crushing on Melissa’s lovely front porch makeover.

  162. I like the board and batten bathroom. I have one just like this that is rather blah and this idea would spruce it up considerably. Thanks for the idea!

  163. I love the BBQ tool storage rack! A lot of work went into cutting down the ScotchBlue Painters Tape, but it really paid off. The plumbing hardware added a nice burst of color and was a witty addition to hang all the tools.

  164. I am inspired by the Board & Batten walls from Simply Designing with Ashley. I would love to do that in my home. Lots of great ideas ladies.

  165. Love how Scotch Blue Painter’s Tape can help create such crisp lines in all the projects! This non-crafts-y person is inspired to attempt a project! I have some antique pieces (love the library cart!) that could use a lift with a coat of paint!

  166. I’m LOVIN that outdoor painted rug – just what I need to do for our new vintage camper restoration! I can match any theme with paint!

  167. I would love to try the chevron look. Oh my daughter loves it and I am gaining strength to attempt.

  168. LOVE the board and batten walls. We’re planning on doing this project for our baby girl’s nursery. She’s due in early October, so we need to get working on it soon!!

  169. The only thing I’ve ever used the tape for is walls. Lots of ideas here. My next project is painting floors!

  170. There are so many fun ideas here! I would love to try my hand at the board and batten!

  171. I really like the painted outdoor rug. it really changes & brightens it up….I think I’m going to do that under my gazebo. Thanks for the great idea!

  172. I love the diamond painted rug by Domestically Speaking! What a great idea and also love the color combination of blue, green, and white.

  173. The diamond painted outdoor rug gives lots of style with not much time. The color combos are never ending!

  174. I love the blue lots with stripes. Will try with Multi colors Super cute

  175. I am inspired by the board and batten too…a HD gift card would be great to help buy the wood!

  176. Love the spruced up front porch that Melissa did-it looks so inviting and summer-y!

  177. I really like them all, and I can’t narrow it down to just one, so I have to say my favorites are the Board and Batten, the Spruced Up Summer Porch and the Diamond Painted Outdoor Rug. I want to try all of them. So much great inspiration.

  178. I love Randi’s color blocked umbrella table. It is just what I need . I’m so tired of the stand for my umbrella tipping over in the wind. This will be perfect for the corner of my deck where I read and smell my jasmine. Can’t wait for hubby to get started! Thanks for the chance to win.

  179. I LOVE blue painters tape, I use it for everything as well as my son loves to do his creations with it and lots of cardboard! I am inspired by the painted flower pots and backyard spruce up (I love her blog too!). We are using summer to do some much needed sprucing up on our exterior!

  180. I am amazed at the range of project possibilities this tape provides! I love it when a product makes a task easier!! Thanks for the inspiration!

  181. I really like the color block umbrella table. I’m always debating between staining and painting. Guess I can do both! I would love some more pops of color in our currently lifeless patio.

  182. I love the pet bed! I’ve been wanting to do something like that for our pups on our deck.

  183. Ohhhh…those board and batten walls! It’s way down on the to do list for us, but one day…

  184. I love the board and batten walls. I’m planning a renovation of our guest bathroom and hoping to do these myself!

  185. I love the furniture that is painted with Scotch Blue. The detail makes it stand out more. Looking to add detail to my end table.

  186. I love the idea of the painted rug. It is a simple way to make a personalized rug. I am going to have to try this for my deck.

  187. I’m another one who loves the workbench. The crisp stripes really point out the warmth of the wood. I’m tempted to try it on an end table to make it a bit more contemporary.

  188. I have a work bench similar to the one in the photo, but the wood is unstained. I have yet to paint it because I wasn’t inspired. That all changed when seeing Trish’s from Uncommon Designs. I know what I am doing this weekend ;-)

  189. I love the front porch. That turquoise metal table really pops against the lattice rug and white rockers. What project to do next?

  190. I’ve been contemplating a board and batten project for a while. That’d be something to tackle.

  191. The farmer’s market stand is too cute! I can see myself completing this project.

  192. I love how simple and easy updating boring flower pots is with Scotch blue and some trendy paint (or ones where I no longer like the color, pattern, etc). This is a project that anyone – no matter how uncrafty – can do! And it allows me to change my pot colors every year if I wanted without having to buy new ones!

  193. I just love the board and batten walls. I will be starting work on an extra bedroom soon and have decided to change decorating direction after seeing those walls.

  194. I like the Aztec Inspired Planter. I have some old planters on my porch that have seen better days. I think a little paint would do them good.

  196. Clever idea to wrap the tape around the drawers of a piece of furniture when painting!

I am pinning this for a project in the very very near future, and I think I may see about adding casters to the legs for even more functionality!! THANKS for the awesome inspirational ideas!!!

  241. I love MaryAnn’s patterned rug. This would look wonderful on my front porch, which is concrete. It could use some style and color!
