Demand everything, compromise nothing with OLYMPIC Paint and Stain promotion

‘No Compromises’ entrants can win consultation with celebrity DIY expert Eric Stromer

PITTSBURGH, April 12, 2012 – OLYMPIC(R) Paint and Stain is rallying DIYers to ditch drab walls and mediocre decks by entering the “No Compromises Makeover with Eric Stromer” promotion. Fans can enter by visiting the Olympic Paint and Stain page on Facebook and uploading a photo of a room or deck that needs a makeover. Two winners will be chosen – the one room entry and the one deck entry that are most in need of makeovers will both win the grand prize of a face-to-face consultation with celebrity DIY expert Eric Stromer, an expert crew to complete the project in a weekend, Olympic Paint and Stain products, and a $2,500 Lowe’s gift card to complete the look.

“Making changes to your big interior and exterior spaces can be easy and doesn’t have to cost a lot of money,” said Eric Stromer, host of “Over Your Head” on HGTV. “By insisting on the right products, such as Olympic Paint and Stain, DIYers can demand big changes in simple, affordable ways and compromise nothing.”
