We’；d like to introduce Kristin Smith and Heather Thomin from BB Frosch.？ Kristin and Heather love hosting DIY chalk paint workshops so when we introduced them to Paint-A-Pillow it was love at first sight.？ That’；s when they decided to host their own party.？ The first thing they did was get their pal， Salty Bison， to assist in the event.？？ She has a great loft space in？Lehi， UT which was perfect for crafting. After a date was selected， they were ready to socialize.
Soon enough they had about 24 people signed up to attend their special event.？ Each one of the attendees was asked to visit the Paint-A-Pillow website (www.paintapillow.com) to select their stencil pattern， type of cover， and paint color.
The night of the event， Kristin and Heather set up work stations so that people could work in small groups.？ They provided sweet treats from a local bakery， Lemonade Kitchen.
Once they got all of the attendees started on their project， they circulated around the room to answer questions and assist. Most attendees used the dense foam roller included in the kit to paint the pillow pattern.
As the two hour event came to an end， guests were happily showing off their DIY accent pillows.
There was even some time to squeak in stenciling a fun tote bag.？ Our Paint-A-Pillow kits can be used to stencil a tote like this Birch Forest example.
Here is a fun video that shows Salty Bison stenciling a DIY accent pillow!
We tried something new last night at our #BBFroschSpecialEvent in Utah. Have you heard of Paint-a-Pillow from the folks at @cuttingedgestencils？ They are BRILLIANT!

Bryan Trevathan has been a Room & Board customer since 1997, shopping at our Edina, MN store to furnish his first home in Minneapolis. When a new job opportunity lured him to Atlanta in 2008, he brought his favorite Room & Board pieces with him on the cross-country move.
As if being beautiful, rich and famous wasn’t sufficient (but, enough about us), celebrities have been given bags full of gifts for attending award shows like the Golden Globes and Oscars for years. From the swag bag’s more humble beginnings as a small token of appreciation to a promotionally driven, IRS attention-worthy, six-figure price tag. Some bags have seen more controversy than some of their recipients’ time in the spotlight. (What’s up, 2007 Britney?) Read on for a glimpse into the history of the rags-to-riches spectrum of gifts, and how to snag one of these A-list swag bag gifts for your very own.
Ever since we wrote about the discontinuation in America of Ikea’s great Alvar-Aalto-esque Frosta stool, – it is widely available in Europe – we have been involved in a curious correspondence with Ikea’s Customer Service Department; it has been a bit “like pulling teeth” (though much more pleasant) to get the information we are looking for.
