Weekend Giveaway: $100 Target Gift Card!

posted by Andrea | 08/10/2012

UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed.

Congrats to: Kara (karamullinix@…)

If you’ve ever done any type of home renovation project, you’ve probably thumbed through piles of magazines, scoured the Internet, and walked the isles of home improvement stores searching for inspiration and ideas.

Or maybe I’m the only one! 

I absolutely LOVE reading about other people’s ideas, learning helpful tips and tricks, drooling over amazing before and after pictures, seeing the lastest products, and dreaming of what my house might look like if I implemented even just a few of the ideas in my ideas book or in my array of Pinterest boards.

So as you can imagine, I’ve been doing lots of “research” for our kitchen renovation… which means I spend a fair amount of time each week searching for new ideas, looking for deals on products we want to buy, and drooling over all things “kitchen”.

Don’t tell Dave, he thinks I’m always working when I’m at my computer :)

Anyway, because I’m a home-renovation junkie, I’m excited to share a fun little design sweepstakes sponsored by Apartment Guide.

“Your Picks. Your Place.” Sweepstakes

From now until August 14, you can visit YourPicksYourPlace.com to vote {once per day} for your favorite room design showcasing furniture and home décor items selected by featured bloggers.

Unfortunately they don’t have a kitchen round, but the voting is currently open for some pretty sweet bedroom designs… like the one featured below.

By voting, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize or one of eight $250 weekly prizes to decorate your own home. You can also find design and décor tips from Apartment Guide, and featured bloggers to help you design a room that’s uniquely you.

And while we’re on the topic of home renovations, decorating, and design, I figured we might as well include a fun giveaway…

Like a $100 Target gift card so you can purchase a few new things for your home!

    I get design inspiration from BHG magazine, HGTV, and sometimes random things I find at decor stores… or my closet :)

  2. Melissa


    My husband and I purchased a newly built home from a builder a short time ago, so major renovations are not in our near future (I hope!) but I get inspiration from HGTV’s website for home decoration ideas.

    I find my inspiration on pinterest!

  4. Pam


    My inspiration is usually the internet and my own personal style…

  5. Marsha


    Love coastal escapes and voted for it!

  6. The Diaper Diaries


    I have started subscribing to a lot of home design blogs that I really like. I found most of them on Pinterest so I guess that counts too.

  7. Nancy


    The easiest way I find design ideas is from the internet.

  8. Melissa Q


    My design inspiration comes from my “Designing Women” friends. These girlfriends of mine have more style in their pinky than I have in fifteen of me! So, I see what they have, decide which things I really like, and find a way to make them mine.
