Vecco #Giveaway CLOSED!!

I dont know about you, but when I sit and stare at my carpets too long, I find them so boring. I had never imagined actually finding a way to do something about that boring carpet, other than throw a decorative rug over it, until I found Vecco. Vecco is a paint that you can decorate your carpets with. Or instead of buying that expensive decorative run, you can buy the cheap plain one, the use some Vecco to decorate it with. I was sent a sample pack of Vecco to try out. This stuff is awesome and I love that I can transform a very boring carpet and room into something that I can really enjoy looking at and be proud of. I can be proud not only for my carpet looking good and decorative, but I can feel good because I did it! Vecco is not hard to use at all. The kit and the Vecco site have instructions that are easy to follow. I am not a artist, but they have templates that you can use as stencils to make a very dull and ordinary rug and carpet into a masterpiece, lol!! There are designs that you can use in your kids rooms as well, so you can decorate and make every room in the house different or the same!!

There’s something underfoot, and it’s inspiring people to rethink their rugs and carpets. Vecco™, an innovative home design tool for creating unique carpet transformations, launches today with an online retail store and its first interactive studio in Chicago. Vecco™ inspires creativity and individuality in a fun and unique way, allowing users to personalize carpets and rugs with easy-to-use templates and colorants.

Bringing inspiration and highlighting individual personalities in the home is within reach. With Vecco™, carpets can be transformed to complement and personalize any d├ęcor. Now, a nature-themed nursery can get a boost of butterflies and flowers on an area rug, while modern aesthetics can go graphic with geometric patterns. The design possibilities are virtually endless thanks to 50 different templates and more than a dozen colorants.


“Home designers start to find a room’s inspiration from the rug,” said Monica Pedersen, HGTV personality and design expert. “Vecco™ allows DIY-ers to set the stage and leave a personal, indelible mark in their homes. Best of all, it’s easy and fun.”


Vecco™ takes the traditional idea of stenciling and applies it to floor treatments. Specially-made templates from Vecco™ range from basic shapes to more elaborate images of items such as leaves or monsters. Users simply spray the colorant onto the areas of the rug exposed by the Vecco™ template to create their desired pattern. Unlike paint, the end result feels touchably soft with a texture similar to the rest of your carpet.


How to Use Vecco™
  • Determine the room to use Vecco™ in and measure the space to cover with the design
  • Select the Vecco template(s) and color palette(s) that suits the design best
  • Shake the colorant bottle, position above the template and spray from a distance of 8 inches
  • Blot template and repeat the process as many times as necessary in order to create the desired pattern; lift and let dry for 48 hours
  • Spray the sealant through the same templates and let dry for 30 minutes, then reapply
  • Allow 48 hours for the new pattern to set permanently

    Vecco™ allows users to play with their designs without worry as nothing is permanent until the sealant is applied. If a mistake is made users can simply let the colorant dry completely (at least 48 hours) and vacuum.
“The Vecco™ brand is a new venture for the SC Johnson family of brands. We saw an opportunity to help make rooms just as unique as the people who live in them,” said Kelly M. Semrau, Senior Vice President – Global Corporate Affairs, Communication and Sustainability, SC Johnson. “We are excited to bring Vecco™ into the home design space giving DIY-ers a whole new canvas to showcase their personalities.”
Colorants and sealants are available at $16.99 each and templates are $15.99 each at the Vecco™ website, www.veccostudio.com, or at a Vecco™ Design Studio. The average project costs around $200, assuming the design includes 4 colorants, 4 templates and 4 cans of sealant. As part of the DIY home furnishings market, a segment that grows an average of 6 percent annuallyi, Vecco™ aids many homeowners working with limited budgets and interested in DIY projects.
Vecco™ gives old, tired rugs and carpets a refreshed, new life with original designs, potentially extending their time in homes. Considering an estimated 5 billion pounds of carpet reaches landfills annuallyii, Vecco™ provides an easy-to-use, greener alternative to replacing carpet for an entire room.
Vecco™ Design Studio
Serving as a real-life inspiration point, the Vecco™ Design Studio today opens its doors in Chicago with an event hosted by HGTV host Monica Pedersen. Located at 912 W. Armitage, the Chicago location is the first Vecco™ Design Studio in the nation and serves as a one-stop shop for everything Vecco™.

The wonderful people from Vecco would like to give one of my amazing readers their own sample pack of Vecco to try out!!

We're going for an Italian villa kind of feel in my son's man cave, so I think I'd choose the Fern Lace 8170 design.
