U-Stripe It- Review & Giveaway



About U-Stripe It:
The U-Stripe It & Design Tool will revolutionalize the design industry.  This tool will allow professional painters to create intricate designs that once took days to complete, in half a day or less.  Likewise, the homeowner will be able to achieve professional and custom interior design results at a fraction of the cost of wallpaper or hiring a commercial painter.  Our tool will help create innovative designs in the users home remodeling projects such as horizontal and vertical stripes of varying widths, plaids, checkered patterns, grids, graphics, custom art works… the designs will only be limited by the user’s imagination. 
I have slowly repainted and re-decorated all the rooms in this house since we moved in except for my "den" and it really needs done, you can see how faded it is by the spots where my grandparents had pictures hanging for years. The other rooms I painted, tatouaged, used vinyl wall art and so on, but I didn't want that in this room. This is where I do all my blogging, hide from the hubby to read and relax. It's a small room and I wanted something warm and cozy but not busy.  So when I got the chance to review the U-Stripe It design tool it was like a light bulb went off in my head. I could do a cream background and have wide chocolate stripes for an elegant yet cozy feel (the room is small so I needed to break up the darker color)

Since Phill, whose dad created the tool, explains way better than I can, I am sharing the instructional video he does with you: 


I found the U-Stripe It tool to be very well made and once I watched the video it was very simple to understand. Much easier than say taking a tape measure and a pencil to mark off where you think the lines should go, only to realize that at least one of them is off! I did find that it was much easier to do the taping with two people, one to hold the tool and one to tape.

Here are some pictures (taken from the website) that show a variety of designs you can easily create with this unique tool:







BUY IT: You can purchase the U-Stripe It & Design Tool online  for $39.95 $27.95 at www.ustripeit.com

I learned that:
Vertical stripes add height to any room and horizontal stripes make a room feel spacious.

So, I am all over the horizonals when I start my new project!
