Giveaway Gold: I Once Was Blind, Now I See.

***This giveaway is now closed***

Congratulations to Jenette (number 109) who said her basement that resembles a dungeon is in dire need or some help.
After Blinds.com let us pick out some blinds for our family room (we’re still working on getting those curtains done), and we all gawked at what a difference they made, they decided to offer up $100 to one of our readers. They have every different kind of blind (if bamboo isn’t your style) and even curtains, too (I’ve got my eye on their light-blocking ones for Greta’s room)!  Something for every style. 
And although window treatments are in the top two things that can take a room from meh to marvelous, we know that getting the other critical and fun details in order can also be daunting.   So get this, Blinds.com is also paying for the winner to receive a custom mood board! Our just-for-your-space mood boards serve up paint color, accessories, furniture, layout, lighting and textiles that will finish off the look you want to achieve, or help you define a style if you don’t know what direction you’re going.
So basically, today’s giveaway is the first major steps in getting your space looking spectacular. All together now, “Thaaannnkkkssss BBBllllinnnnddssss Doootttt Coommmmm.”

  • Prize:  $100 to Blinds.com and a Custom Mood Board for any room you choose.
  • To Enter:   Leave a comment telling us about a space or room you are struggling with most.  Right now, we have a room in our basement that is still in disarray from a little flooding last year and don’t even get me started on our landscaping. Yikes!
  • Giveaway Closes: Thursday, April 12th at 11pm MST
  • Number of Winners: One
  • Prize Ships:  Anywhere in the US
  • Fine Print:  Only one entry per e-mail address, people. We’ll summon random.org after the giveaway closes to select our winner and announce it on Friday as an update to this post.  Go. Go. Goooooo!!!!!

      Our second bathroom is in… well, remodel limbo. Our home was remodeled 2 years ago but that bathroom never got done. We’ve just now begun finishing it!

      My biggest struggle is my living room. I just can’t seem to pull it together the way I want to.

      Well, the only window coverings we currently have in the house (yes, sad I know.) I made fun of thinking they were from the previous home owner and Pierce never changed them. Whoops, apparently he picked them out himself. Which would have been fine, if it were still 1992. Love the beans out of him for trying! :)

      Oh- I have a window treatment dilemma: front room (facing the street), large picture style window. I have curtains hung on either side, but no actual blinds. We never close the curtains (too much of a pain). I don’t know what types of blinds to do and bamboo just doesn’t seem right here (would otherwise be my go-to choice). I was thinking of some sort of shutter actually, since we have a somewhat more traditional look in this room, but I don’t know how to do this. Sigh. I would LOVE the blinds.com giveaway, for the gift card, but mostly for the mood board too!

      Even when we clean the whole house for guests, we hide our bedroom. It is the one room without color, purpose, or personality. It is just the place we collapse right now, along with all the homeless “stuff” we haven’t the energy to locate or toss! :-) I dream of someday having a room that is a retreat, not the room that makes me tired as soon as I wake up.

      Struggling so hard with our master bath. It’s pretty narrow and I want to add everything. Also has some unusual features (pitched ceiling with short outer wall)

      ugh..it’s a toss up between our den – which is like 24 feet long but only 12 feet wide and is half carpet/half concrete sub-floor or our “formal” living room/dining room which right now is a big empty space leading into the kitchen because I can’t decide what I want it TO function as. I DO know the vertical blinds in that room HAVE to go!!!

      Where to start? My whole house needs a lot of help! We have a plan for the kitchen, which is overwhelming me (painting all of my 57 cabinets white – I will be referencing your tutorial). But at least there’s a plan. I have a beautiful bay window in my living room and we cannot decide on a window treatment for it. We are overwhelmed at how expensive it’s going to be since it’s going to need to be custom done. Not sure how I can DIY. And we are lacking in wall decor. So I’d have to go with my living room!

      we are slowly finishing our basement…i have a basic sense of what will go where, but it’s the sofa placement/wall decor thing that’s giving me trouble. i’m thinking a big ‘ol shelf with leaning stuffs.

      I am struggling with every room in the house if we’re being honest :)

      But actually, we just had our house broken into on Wednesday. I’m sure it didn’t help that I had extremely sheer curtains (because I love bright rooms) in our kitchen and that our glass kitchen door had no kind of curtain or blind — you could see right in and see my laptop on the kitchen table, which was stolen. Now I am struggling on whether or get curtains or mini blinds on the backdoor, and if I need to beef up the kitchen curtains :( and lose my light.

      Our finished basement room is desperately in need of a refresh. As is our landscaping. Ugh.

      The room is currently referred to as the ‘Goldilocks Room’. It seems to be where all the extra furniture/random stuff ends up.

      Our bathroom is a scary place!! Pink walls, cheap laminate flooring, dingy tiles…need I say more?? I need some serious help and blinds + a mood board would be the perfect start to a solution :)

      I’m struggling with our dining room! It’s a big room with one loooooong wall of nothing on it! I can’t figure out anything to put on it to make it look nice. I need help!

      My french doors in the dining room are getting an overhaul. Sure would be nice to do it for FREE.

      Our Dining Room is in serious need of some help! It is especially challenging since one wall of the room is a sliding glass door.

      The Basement, we have been working on it forever! Right now it is a mixture of random furniture!

      We’ve been in our house for about 2.5 years and are still struggling with how to get the best use out of our small family room in the basement. We’ve tried a few different layouts, nothing seems just right for us.
