Wall Paint Challenge
Wall Paint Challenge
Thanks to all of the participants in this product challenge. We have crowned our two champions!Read More
At the beginning of the year we ran a survey asking Creator’s Studio members about their wall paint preferences. From that survey we selected 24 participants to conduct a product test of two of our lines of wall paint and participate in what we’re calling the Wall Paint Challenge.
24 members received paint from us and in exchange, agreed to paint a wall or room in their home and share their feedback with us. Now that their projects are complete, we’re thrilled to be able to share the results with you!
To our Challenge Participants, thanks for participating in this challenge! Read on for submission instructions:
Once you’ve received your paint, you can get started painting right away, just don’t forget to snap a couple of “before” photos before you get started so we can see the full transformation. If you can rig up a tripod or enlist an assistant, we’d love photos or video of the painting in action.
Once your painting is done, style your space and snap your final photos. Then complete the submission and feedback form. Your product feedback will only be shared with the Rust-Oleum team.
Remember to submit your transformation before midnight CST on May 16th. Then we’ll share the transformations with the rest of the Creator’s Studio and our Experts will choose two winners. The submissions with the greatest transformation will win a prize and wear the Winner’s crown.
Photo / Video Suggestions
Please don't forget to take a before photo before you get started. We'd also be interested in seeing photos of your prep (taping/filling holes/sanding etc.) and definitely would love to see photos or video of your painting in progress. Maybe you want to get creative with a Timelapse video or a fun Boomerang? (Slow-motion might not be the right choice here... We think the only thing that's worse than watching paint dry would be watching paint dry in slow motion 😂 )
Here are links to a couple of resources you can check out for ideas on how to take the best photos of your rooms and showcase your painting skills.

- Take a "before" photo before getting started!
- Paint a room using the paint we provided.
- Complete the submission / feedback form before May 16th at midnight CST
- Include at least two photos of your room - we need to see a before photo and an after photo (this is the bare minimum requirement for this challenge.)
- Complete the feedback form and tell us how it went, how your experience was with the paint, and any challenges you may have had. (Your responses to the feedback section will be kept private)
- This Challenge operates under the overarching terms and conditions that apply to all Creator's Studio Challenges.
We thought it might be hard for Creator's Studio members to vote for a winner, and so our Wall Paint team will be our Expert Review panel. They will select two winners in this challenge (one per paint-type that was used), and will be looking for things like the quality of submitted photos and the detail provided in your product feedback.
We'll be crowning two winners in this challenge who will receive our favorite piece of Rust-Oleum swag. One winner will be chosen from Sure Color users and one winner will be chosen from Smart Coat users.
Rust-Oleum reserves the right to change or adjust the prizes awarded, as well as the right to reject or request amendments to submissions.
