True Value Giveaway #2!

12-30-09: This giveaway has now ended. Thanks to all those who entered!




Hello! Tomorrow Kevin is going to tackle our third, and final, True Value DIY Squad project. Installing a new mailbox! The one that we've been calling a mailbox for the past two years is hanging on by a rusty thread, so we're going to use some of the dough True Value gave us to get one that looks a little more presentable, stands a little straighter, and actually has a door. If you'd like to see how it goes, check back tomorrow for Kevin's play-by-play. (I'm really hoping the ground isn't too terribly hard!)

In the meantime, we thought we'd host another True Value Giveaway. Our local True Value has a fantastic home decor section called, "Snooty Miss Moody's", and we picked up some great stuff to give away this week...


A burlap tote...





A couple of concrete candle holders...





And a sweet, little wire picture frame...






---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


So if you'd like to enter for a chance to win all of these lovely items, just leave one comment on this post by Thursday, December 31st (2009) at noon. (Central Time)



And Congratulations to Melissa Mautz, who won the DIY Drama Contest!



Her "Duct Taped Shower" drama won her the help of a local True Value handy man and a $5,000 shopping spree at True Value! Hopefully she'll be standing on tile instead of duct tape while she showers soon!

Great items, I had no idea True Value had a section like this - I always thought they were more of a "hardware" store. Thanks for another great giveaway :)

Ginger said...

It would be lovely to use that tote for magazines, or to carry folders and paper to meetings. The candleholders and frame also already have a home if I should get the honor of winning. Best of luck to everyone! Happy New Year
