Enter and win the DIY Decorator of the Month

The most impressive DIY decorator’s project (in our opinion) posted on the forum this month, wins a prize of a Decorating Kit Box, worth over £100. This will run every month for 12 months

##The Decorating Kit Box comprises a product from each of the Trade Corner companies

Owatrol paint conditioner, Abranet abrasives, Fox brushes / sashes, Axus tack rags, Holmans £10 paint voucher plus Free P+P, Fluxaf Pro Clean, 4 assorted tubes of Prestonnet interior / exterior filler, a Go!Paint – Clean and Go! and more.

All these products are highly recommended by Traditional Painters, the monthly prize is worth well over £100, and most importantly, it will set any keen DIY’er well on their way for future decorating projects.

This competition will run for 12 months! So plenty of time to get to work. With patience, guidance and confidence, DIY decorators can, and do produce great results.

##How to enter

  • Upload a before and after shot of your pride and joy decorating work in this month’s competition.

  • Include a few (or many words), sharing with us how you did it.

  • We will do the rest.

  • The most impressive entry wins.

  • After each monthly prize award, we are happy to chip in with helpful feedback and make suggestions about any of the entries. Just ask, as this will help you raise the bar for next time, and in general, help DIY readers derive maximum value for your money, and most importantly, make the most of your precious spare time.

##Who can enter the competition?

You are a keen home decorator, (DIY not in the decorating trade) UK based*, and you have decorated a room, kitchen or piece of furniture, even the outside of your house.

You approached it as professionally as you could, and you are really pleased / pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. You took longer than a pro, perhaps; it is maybe not 100% perfect, and maybe you didn’t enjoy it, but it turned out much better than expected and you are chuffed.

Doing it right, it was time and money well spent. This is your chance to shine and show what can be done, taking the same approach as the professionals!

##Outside the UK?

    • Apologies to overseas readers, please note that all supplies are held in the UK, and we are only able to ship prizes to UK addresses. There is no cash alternative.
  • As there seems to be some interest in this from overseas, I will however do a non-UK DIY play-off at the end of December 2014, and sort a prize worthy for the best contributor.

Keep up to date

- Each month the winner and worthy runners-up will be posted below, as well as on the relevant monthly event page on the forum.
  • We will also post any relevant news or information about the DIY Decorator of the Month competition on FaceBook or Twitter.
