  235. says

    Haven’t been much of my own DIY-er, but recently got addicted to the idea of painting a couple of wooden stools bright, bright colors to grab some attention in our lake house. Hubby surprised me by priming them for me, then painted one with the bright yellow I chose. Now I’m TOTALLY hooked on the idea of DIM – doing it myself! Such a small job, yet with such a huge payoff! I told him not to touch the other two, I wanted to really do them myself!! Can’t wait! Would love to win so I could choose MORE projects to do!!!

  236. Vonda L. says

    If I win the gift card, do you come with it to give decorator’s advice? Okay, wishful thinking…..

    This would help jump start some painting projects I have in mind. Thank you for the chance to win!

  238. says

    Thanks for the giveaway… this would be a great one to win! And I have to thank you for all your posts about plank paneling… this weekend we tore down our previous styrofoam ceiling in our old farmhouse and the beadboard revealed underneath was pretty much beyond repair. Then I remembered your posts about the planks, I showed my husband and he made a trip to Lowe’s the next morning! It looks fabulous, even without the trim put up yet. :-) Thanks for all the inspiration you provide!
