Giveaways & Contests, Rental Remedies

This giveaway will make you screen!

**This giveaway is now closed.**

I’m so excited to share this totally rental-friendly giveaway.  Like my first giveaway, it’s an item that I purchased but no longer have a use for.  But this time, it’s brand-spankin’ new, still in the packaging.

When I first spied this set of 4 floral cut-out hanging screens at the Container Store, I knew I had to snag a set for my home.  Here’s how they work:  They’re decorative plastic cutout screens that can be hung either from the ceiling or on the walls providing a totally easy – and temporary – way to divide a room or just add a bit of dimension to a wall.  The four identical squares can be clipped together to form a singular long hanging panel, a square grid, or can be combined in sets of two to create two identical panels.  I bought them, thinking I’d spray paint them a bright color and hang them in sets of two on either side of our bedroom window – but then I ended up using personalized photography instead. So what to do?  Why, pass them on to one of my fabulous blog readers, of course!  There’s so many different options for how you could use them in your home.  They’re so lightweight that they can be easily hung from the ceiling with small Command adhesive hooks – and voila, a small hanging room divider that still keeps your space feeling open and light.  Need some fun, colorful decor for a large wall?  Paint them all one – or different – colors, and stick them to the wall in a grid using Command adhesive tabs.  Voila, a wall decor solution that requires no nails or screws.

Just to give you guys a peek at how they look in real life, I took two out of the package and hung them on hooks that I already had installed on my wall.  (Note – because I’m trying to keep the packaging in one piece, I used my own paperclips to attach the two screens.  The actual packaging includes very small round hooks to connect them.)

Go figure –  Now that I’m ready to share this giveaway with you guys, I can’t find them anywhere on the Container Store website.  But UMA (Urban Materials & Accessories) sells these 3 designs (available in white and black), including the white floral one I picked up at the Container Store back in August.

And if you don’t win, don’t want to cough up the $29 for a set (that’s more than I paid) and are still jonesing for a set, I have a feeling this could be DIY’ed with a pattern or stencil, box cutter, poster board, and a healthy dose of patience.

Now for the official giveaway details:

The Prize: One set of 4 white Decor Cutout Screen Panels (new, in packaging)

Who’s Eligible: Anyone with a shipping address in the United States

Prize Value: $29.00

To Enter: Comment on this post, and share how you’d use these panels!  One entry per email address.  But want a bonus entry or two?  Tweet this or hop over to The Borrowed Abode’s Facebook page, become a fan, and share the link.  Either way, be sure to leave another comment if you Tweet or Facebook it!

    OMG There are a million things I could use these babies for. I’m so super curious to see how they would look framed and matted over photographs of the beach or something equally nostalgic for me 😉 I will def be hitting you up on facebook – I didn’t realize you had a page! =)


  • Reply Julia at 9:45 am

    Since we’ll be going into a rental soon I would likely use them as dividers in a room – and DIY some more panels to complement the look! And I’m with you on FB… which you already know!!

  • Reply April in CT at 10:11 am

    Oh my WORD!! I have THE perfect spot for these in our bedroom. I’ve been looking forever for something to fill this troubled spot and I think these would work great!! *crosses fingers*

  • Reply Kate @ Twenty-Six To Life at 10:41 am

    Oh wow, these look really neat. I can think of a few different things I could try with them – the stencil idea is certainly one of them!

  • Reply Jen at 10:50 am

    Such a great giveaway, you are so kind! I think they are very pretty!


  • Reply Sunny's Life in Rehab at 11:16 am

    Those would work wonderfully right behind my bar!

  • Reply Amanda at 11:57 am

    My bedroom needs some pretty touches!

  • Reply Amber Rust at 5:38 pm

    Well… My son & I just moved in with my mom in her 1br apt. Tyler & I are sleeping on bunkbeds in the living room. What I’d do is use them as a start & add a few more panels to create a room divide so he & I could at least feel like we have a small modicum of privacy.

  • Reply Mikalah at 6:07 pm

    Uhm… I love these. I would hang them up on my walls, or maybe even on a window so the light could shine through! Count me in! =)

  • Reply Jenni at 12:35 pm

    These would be beautiful at the end of my desk to separate it from the rest of my bedroom!

  • Reply Colleen C at 12:55 pm

    Oh these would be so gorgeous in our newly painted bedroom that we are tying to add some dimension (literally!) to!

  • Reply Colleen C at 1:03 pm

    These would work fabulously in our newly painted bedroom to add some great dimension!

  • Reply Nikki at 3:15 pm

    I have weird random window in my house that I would love to hang these in. Thanks!

  • Reply Peaches at 3:22 pm

    I love the idea of these cut out panels. They would be great hung in our living room on the blank wall above our TV. Very cute!

  • Reply Min at 4:55 pm

    These panels would be perfect for our very bare walls in the living room. They’re beautiful!

  • Reply Anna at 8:38 pm

    These would definitely bring some calming (and much more beautiful than cinder-block wall) life to my dorm room! I’ll be sure to pass along the link to some friends at school too. Thanks, Jane!

  • Reply Katharine at 8:40 pm

    Hi, I have my office corner in my room. I’d hang it from the ceiling to section the office off without taking too much room that big floor screen would take.

    Thanks, Katharine

  • Reply Katharine at 8:49 pm

    I twitted and mentioned this on facebook. Plus, I “liked” you on facebook. 🙂

  • Reply Jen at 9:25 pm

    How cool are those?! Love them! I’d either use them as a stencil or hang them as-is in my powder room. They’d look great against the dark gray walls.

  • Reply Priscilla K. at 9:54 pm

    What a great giveaway! I’d use this as a room divider between my living and dining rooms. Thanks!

  • Reply Pippa at 10:10 pm

    Oh, those are so pretty! I’m moving into a temporary home next month, and they’d be a great way to spiff up a dull wall. 🙂

  • Reply Julia at 7:37 am

    My friend Anna told me about this, and I must say that they are beautiful screens! They would add a much-need homey touch to my dorm room.

  • Reply Michelle at 8:33 am

    These would look great on either side of the windows in my kids’ bedroom!

  • Reply okgirl at 1:39 pm

    I would lay them out on blank paper and spray paint a coordinating color. That way, I can cut out the painted designs and have eight items to arrange on my gargantuan living room wall that is *completely* empty.

  • Reply Erica at 2:34 pm

    I would keep them white and hang them on my dining room wall which is currently empty and in need of some art! Being that the wall is a dark chocolate color the white would be an awesome contrast! Thanks

  • Reply Megan at 11:18 am

    These would look fabulous on the wall behind my bed! Thanks!

  • Reply Tina W at 12:08 am

    I would love to hang these to block the computer desk from the rest of the living room area. To pretend I have a home office!

  • Reply Deanna at 10:43 am

    Oh, those are fabulous! I think I would use them to create a separation from the office and the dining area. 🙂

  • Reply Liza at 3:59 pm

    These look like they would *exactly* fit on the four stacked windows beside my office door to add some femininity and privacy in my workplace.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    I love these. I am in major need of some colorful art for my living room so I would use them over a bright colored background and frame them.

    I stumbled across your blog via another crafting blog and immediately fell in love. I spent the last 2 hours scrolling through your amazing blog when I stumbled across this post. I went to the Dollarrama (Canadian Store) and found these exact panels for $2 (only one panel came in the pack) I purchased 4 of the ones with the star in the middle. Seeing your post made my draw drop because I saved a ton of Moola! WOO HOO! Just thought I would share with you and your readers! 🙂
