Home Construction and Improvement Giveaway

Home Construction and Improvement is a great site for picking up tips on doing your own DIY home improvement projects around the house. I wish I would have known of this site last year when I painted my bedroom! When I bought my house, the bedroom was one of the rooms most in need of a little TLC. It was a horrible beige-ish color, with paint all over the ceiling and white patchmarks all over the walls...



My friend and I decided to tackle this over the Christmas/New Year break in 2009/2010, and I had no idea what I was getting myself into! It seemed that everyday I had to head back to the store to buy more supplies, and the costs really added up for just a single room!

But with lots of hard work and determination, it paid off with a lovely light buttercream room and  beautiful velvet sky blue accent wall. (Please excuse the wrinkled curtains and bedspread. Everything was just unpacked and hadn't "settled" yet.)...




I was so happy with the way it turned out!

Now my next painting project is my guest bath, which is currently what we affectionately call a "baby poop" brown...


Ugh! So you can imagine how happy I am that Home Construction Improvement is having a giveaway for a $200 Home Depot gift card! The kind folk at Home Depot are offering the card for one lucky winner to redo their bathroom as part of a renew and redo event. Fabulous!

Just head on over to HCI for your chance to win!

Hi Heather *waving back wildly*...Thanks for entering my giveaway...I'm so happy your mom liked her portrait--it was one of my favorites from last year. May I feature it on my blog?--let me know if you have any extra tidbits or stories about any of the pets (including their names) and your mom and Tommy. I would include a link back to your blog and/or any websites you'd like to promote. In the mean time, have fun with your renovation--isn't wall paint wonderful? Your room turned out beautiful!
