Giveaway: 5 Gallons of Olympic Stain!

  1. Kelly Jo says:

    that deck on the canal is now my screen saver at work and I can't stop staring!

    Without a doubt the flower box is my favorite project. As a matter of fact, that is on my husbands honey do list for the spring!

    As well as staining our fence, so this prize would be way convenient!

    Thanks for a chance…

  2. Shandra says:

    We're getting ready to rebuild our back porch (we had to rip it out to work on waterproofing the basement, and man, was it in bad shape!) so stain would be fantastic for that! I love the kids picnic table, but really, really love the trellis. I'm having to stop myself from running out to buy the stuff right now…my roses could sure use it!

  3. The Brick Cottage says:

    I had no idea they made stains that mimicked paint! That's so awesome!

    My favorite project is the planter's box. We're working on our front porch at the moment and a couple of those would be awesome. Maybe I can talk my hubs into building one. Fingers crossed!

    I went to their stie and think the Garden Trellis DIY project looks neat! I would definitley do something like that!

  5. Kelly Ann says:

    The planter box is definitely my favorite. Now if I could just get the deer from stop eating my plants we would be in business.

    Can't wait to restain my deck! It is in some total need for love.

  6. Allison says:

    Love the flower box project! I also had no idea that Olympic made this stain! What great colors! I am about to paint a pattern on the floor of our screened in porch and this would be PERFECT!!


  7. Nikki says:

    Do you think your hubby could do a herringbone pattern? Sure it would be a lot of cuts, but I bet it would look awesome. I know mine would tell me no ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Amy says:

    I love the planter box. I've been trying to get my husband to build us some!

  10. Deb(bie Debbie Doo) says:

    I'd love to tackle the Garden Trellis – though in truth I'm probably still at the planter box skill level ๐Ÿ™‚

    thanks for the timely giveaway – was just realizing yesterday that I need to restain our deck!

  11. Cassie says:

    Even though the garden trellis stole my heart I think it would be smarter to go with the 'beginners' project. Cute flower boxes it is!
    Those would look fabulous under any window ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. Karen says:

    I need a new trellis for my confederate jasmine, and I love the copper pipe in the Olympic garden trellis. I also need to stain a deck, fence, and screened porch, so the 5 gallons of stain would be a good start to that project.

  13. ~Mendie~ says:

    Oh the garden trellis is awesome! We are going to be staining our kitchen table and trim soon…so this would be awesome!

  14. Kylee says:

    I love the trellis but think the flower box would be more my speed! All the different colors of stain are great!!

  15. Cassie @ Primitive & Proper says:

    it's probably the color, but i love the child's picnic table! LOVE it! i am a follower, too! and if i win, you can reach me at thanks!

  17. Emily says:

    I would try the Garden Trellis in a heartbeat! We just remodeled the pool and that would be a great addition to our backyard!

    Love your blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  18. Chellie says:

    Oh, I would make like a dozen of those cute picnic tables! Okay, maybe only a few, but, heck, with that much stain, you could! My kids could totally utilize one at gma's, one in the front yard, one in the back yard… haha.

  19. Wendy says:

    I like the planter box but probably because it's the only one at my skill level. Hahaha! I do have a Adirondack love seat and chair that could be refinished with some of this beautiful stain!


  20. meg says:

    I think I need to go with the 'beginners' project – cute flower boxes for my windows!

  21. The DIY Show Off says:

    Wow – that deck is awesome, isn't it?

    Who knew there were so many different colors of stain? I'm excited about it!

    I like the garden trellis best. We have a huge grape arbor that is ready for stain this year. Winning 5 gallons would be amazing!

    Thanks for the great giveaway, Camila! I'm a long time follower. ๐Ÿ˜‰


  22. Design Esquire says:

    The old paint is peeling off my deck, so this would be the perfect giveaway prize for me!!

    I love the flower box tutorial. It looks totally doable!

    Thanks for having such a generous giveaway!

  23. MaryNeff says:

    I love the flower boxes, and we really want to build raised beds for vegetables this summer. But first, we have an entire fence to stain!

  24. grace says:

    My favorites are the planter and trellis projects. I would love some stain for our new fence!

  25. Cheryl the pearl says:

    My deck needs some serious TLC. Hope I win!


  26. Kati says:

    My favorite is the child's picnic table — my son would love one. And I would love some stain! We built our deck last year (!) but haven't actually gotten around to staining it yet. It's on our list of projects, though, so this would be PERFECT timing for me!

  27. bp says:

    We need to stain our decks (front and back) again this year, so this would be a HUGE help! I'd love to try one of Olympic's colors. The garden trellis is my favorite project.

  28. Averill says:

    Our crappy wood fence is crying for some stain action!

    (And I love that garden trellis, of course!)

  29. Mel says:

    I would love to build that garden trellis! And I need to stain my kids' playhouse, so this giveaway would be great for both!

    I love the planter box – except I'd probably choose a punchier color.

  31. Bri says:

    We need to stain our deck so this would be awesome to win! I also would LOVE to make a trellis in the back yard!

  32. Amber says:

    My favorite is the planter box. I just told my husband I want to make a planter box for our front window!

  33. Rachel @ La Bella Bungalow says:

    Thank you for this post. My husband is about to stain our deck and I was trying to think of a way to not use the boring "red" looking stain. You were just in time!

    I'd have to say I like the garden trellis the best, but of course it says ADVANCED skill level!


  34. LindsB says:

    What a great give-away! I love the planter box project. I would have to adapt it for indoor use since I live in an apartment. But you better believe I would make a ton of indoor planters for my apartment, I would love to have a place for flowers and herbs!

  35. The Boese Family says:

    Great giveaway! All those colors…WOW!!! I like the trellis project. Thanks!

  36. Tawny says:

    I love the planters boxes. We unfortunately have a hard time growing things in our yard so we have gone to container gardening. A simple project with hopes for a bountiful harvest!

  37. Jen says:

    i need to restain my deck so badly…this would be so perfect for us! PICK ME!

    Oh and I'm a follower of course!

    The child's table is my favorite I think but it says skill:advanced and that doesn't sound much like me…maybe I should stick to the planter!

  38. Robyn says:

    Love the planter box. That could be used as a window box. Hmmm… maybe a new project for my husband or I could just do it. Okay, I'll do it. Thanks for the info. Didn't know there were so many options.

  39. megan. says:

    I'm a follower!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have been dying to have an outdoor space, so the trellis project would be amazing… as I get older, I am loving springtime more and more. I think a brightly colored trellis would pop and be a great welcoming addition to a lush garden area!

  40. megan. says:

    oh, and I tweeted about your giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. matandconnie says:

    I like the garden trellis. I would love to add that to my backyard. It would contribute to the zen feel I am going for.

  42. Kristen says:

    I like the flower boxes especially since they say beginner level!!!

  43. Laura says:

    Oh the garden trellis for sure! I need to make one of those asap for my climbing rose ๐Ÿ™‚

  44. Sarah Esther says:

    omg I absolutely love this! hahaha talk about a functional giveaway! we have an atlanta cottage bungalow that could use some love stain ๐Ÿ™‚

  45. layersofmeaning says:

    We need this so bad! We want to re stain our fance. The Garden Trellis my favorite DIY project!

  46. Carrie says:

    the planter box would probably be my favorite… it looks the least complicated :o) Thanks!

  47. Katie says:

    I REALLY wish I owned my house so I could paint! Darn it! The colors!

  48. Petmum says:

    Most of all I liked the trellis, but this prize would do the trick on the wood siding of a section of my house! (Practicality before all — boring!)

  49. Carolyn says:

    I love the trellis- we have a fug retaining wall and putting something like that over it would be a big improvement- however we can't do that until we powerwash and re-stain our entire house! We have cedar siding and the whole house has to be done, so 5 gallons would be a nice help to us!

  50. Mary Ellen says:

    Like the trellis !I have wood shingle siding on my detached sun room and this stain would be just the thing to spruce this puppy up~

  51. Mary Ellen says:

    Oops so sorry forgot my email-

  52. Tara says:

    Well, the kid's picnic table is just adorable!! But I'm going to have to go with the planter box, because I really need to make one for the summer. Our deck/balcony looks pretty sad right now.

    We're getting ready to re-finish our antique bed, so this would be pretty awesome, Ms. Camilla!

  53. Scott and Rebekah says:

    I love the Kid's picnic table!!! Would be great for my little boy now that the weather is warm.

  54. CMH says:

    I need this so bad. My deck is in dire need! I dont know which I would pick, but would be oh so excited to have the chance. I love the planter boxes. Another thing to put on my to do list!

  55. Anonymous says:

    I love the clean lines of the window box. Very modern yet, perfect for our cape style house. Just came from Lowe's and was pricing out a 5 gallon drum of Olympic Maximum Soid Stain! Such a coincidence. I'll wait to see if I win before I spend the $148…going with the Gilbralter Gray for our fence! Thanks for having this contest! ~Jennifer

  56. Betty says:

    I really like the garden trellis and need a feature like this in our side yard.

    Enjoy your blog so much.

  57. bamboo gazebo says:

    yeah,that is good choice for rest

  58. thelovelylifestyle says:

    The Mister and I could put that stain to some good use. The uses really pile up now that I realize stain comes in colors. Like, real colors. I thought stain only came in shades of wood tones.

    The planter boxes would be our best bet. Iโ€™ve been toying with the idea of raised gardens. With my black thumb of death a raised garden would help me with soil and having the best lifestyle of my plants. Who says a plant doesnโ€™t need a lovely lifestyle of its own? Not only do they need a great atmosphere their planter box pad should rock. Therefore, Iโ€™d give it the solid color stain.

  59. thelovelylifestyle says:

    Well, stink. I forgot to put my email address on my last comment. So, we'll count this as comment #2 since I put this AWESOME giveaway on my Twitter account, blog and Facebook.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldnโ€™t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that itโ€™s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
