Home Depot: Gift Card Giveaway

By Kate Riley May 4, 2012

Hi everyone, happy weekend to you all!  Last night I was in Roseville and I gave a presentation for Home Depot in partnership with their resident garden expert Skip.  He taught us all a few new things about container gardening, and I chimed in the creative side, sharing some ideas on how to spruce up ordinary containers plus a few ideas on how to add beauty and whimsy to outdoor spaces.  I didn’t take any pictures since I was speaking, but here is a peek at one part where I’m showing how to create a mosaic tile planter, courtesy of Home Depot on Instagram.  I’ll show how I made that beautiful planter next week!

This weekend, the kind folks over at Home Depot are offering three lucky winners a $50 gift card to shop for anything you want!  Yep, there are three gift cards up for grabs this weekend.  Who’s in the mood for a little home improvement?

  1. We’re getting ready to paint our kitchen cabinets and tile a backsplash. My husband and I usually end up at Home Depot on our date nights! =)

  2. We are about to start a kitchen renovation. It would be a great little gift to buy some of the supplies we will need.

  3. Since we just moved into our first house last weekend, EVERYTHING needs to be done! My plan is to start with painting though!

  4. My next project is to paint the outside of my house. I’ve finally convinced my hubby that it’s OK to paint our ugly brick. I’m so excited!

  5. I have a list a mile long but I really want to tackle a play area for my two boys. I could definitely use a gift card to home depot to help get me started!

  6. Our next project is fixing and staining our deck… can’t wait to relax on it this summer.

  7. We just bought our new home and it needs a lot done!!! My first project is to refinish the kitchen cabinets and put new countertops and pulls. I am using your How to’s to accomplish this. Thanks for all your tips!

  8. We just bought an old farmhouse and I have a hundred new projects.
    I guess the first is to paint my bedroom before we move in. Then on to
    the others. I am out of breath already!! Thanks for your neat blog.

  9. We bought our first house six months ago. Everything needs to be redone. Starting with a new roof next month.

  10. Gardening gardening and more gardening…we are starting to replace all the planter beds in the backyard now, hoping to have a tropical theme by the pool by summer!

  11. My fiance and I are in a home improvement hurricane right now. Our whole condo is torn to shreds. Thankfully we haven’t touched the kitchen yet but we will very soon. We will be repainting our cabinets white and installing butchers block as counter tops with a undermount sink. I hope we finish soon because I am tired of living on a cement floor!

  12. You looked great, Kate…very professional. Loved the photo! Fabulous shoes, too! I bet it was a fun evening. Our next home project is our landscaping in our front yard. We just finished ripping out a ton of juniper that had been there for probably 30 years I’m guessing. The gift card would certainly come in handy! Happy weekend to you!

  13. We are getting ready to paint our 2 year old’s “big girl room” and transform the basement to a playroom! Any help we can get would be great! Thanks for hosting!

  14. OMGosh! How did I not know you were here in Roseville??? I would have run right over to Home Depot last night. LOL! So many projects, what to pick? I think the next one will be sprucing up the backyard, starting with laying some brick pavers to extend the patio.

  15. Need to spruce up the bathroom and am planning on a kitchen renovation a little bit down the road.

  16. We just bought our first home, and have numerous projects in the works. Currently ripping down wood paneling, and old carpet. We also ripped out all the baseboards in the home and will be replacing them. I’m also dying to try your tutorial on installing picture frame molding, it’s going to look so clean and elegant in our colonial. So excited!

  17. Building floating shelves above freshly chalk painted china hutch. Gimme the card so I can buy the lumber!

  20. Oh, we’ve got two projects going… building a banquette to neaten up the eat-in portion of our kitchen, and a loft/built-in storage fiasco, um, re-do in our daughters’ room. HD is our favorite, so I know that $50 would be put to good and immediate use!

  21. We’re moving into a 12-year-old townhouse and we will be making many changes in various rooms–flooring, lighting, fixtures, etc. It would be great to receive a gift card to help with all our expenses!

  22. Our next house project is re-doing our dining room. It’s really dark and needs some updating!

  23. I am really looking forward to seeing that mosaic tiles planter, I think it would be great to make one for my garden. We got this crazy idea of building a brick fireplace in the backyard this summer, so I am sure that we could find all we need at Home Depot.

    More decorating than remodel…

  25. Our next home improvement project is the master bedroom. We haven’t done anything with it and it’s time to paint! A Home Depot gift card would be perfect since the color I’ve chosen is from HD.

  33. We have many projects around here, but my latest one is painting the half bathroom! Prime, painting, trim—it is gonna be fun!

  47. We are putting in a cedar hedge this weekend:) The trees are from HD

  48. I have a TON of home improvement projects I need to do. The 1st being to replace my hot water heater. Then there’s plumbing to fix, walls to paint, gardening to do…the list goes on & on. LOL! :)

  49. We were going to do some fun organizing and updating in our laundry room, but our microwave just broke! It’s one of the built in over the stove ones, so a replacement is a couple hundred bucks. So that’s where the budget is going!

  50. I want to repaint my front door a vibrant color so it will stand out from the rest of the house.

  51. I’m embarking on a whole house renovation. it’s exciting and daunting all at the same time. I could use some Home Depot funds!

  54. I would love this! What a wonderful help it would be! We are sprucing up our yard with lots of beautiful flowers as well as planting yummy veggi’s in the garden!

  55. In the process of revamping an early American rocking chair- will need staples, glue, screws, and probably a few unexpected things to complete it!

  63. Its all about the garden right now,love,love love this time of year.

  64. Hey there! I would really love to embark on a project of making pallet furniture for my back patio. I came across some really cool ideas and would love to get them started. Pallet planters, pallet seats and tables.. so cool. We have been in our home for 5 years and the only patio furniture we had (which was a gift for a birthday) fell apart in a storm two years ago. This seemed like the most cost efficient and unique thing I could find to fill that space. That’s what I would do if I won.
    Sharing to my Facebook page. :)

  65. My next project is one I’ve been avoiding… yard work. I don’t understand landscaping at all, and everything I need is so expensive! Soon, I will work on those garden beds, not that I know what to do.

  66. I am planning to remove the wallpaper in my bathroom, paint, replace the mirror, and the faucets. Would love a gift card!

  67. My current home improvement project: I bought cheap shelf on Craigslist and am painting it white. Everyone in the family wants it in their room but I think it will find a home on our dining room wall!

  68. I’ve already painted my dining room a super dark charcoal color, and next on the list is adding ceiling trim, trimming out the window, and rehabbing a Craigslist dining table and chairs. But if I win, I’m using the money to make your shim planters for my mom and mother-in-law for Mother’s Day!

  69. My husband and I are buying our first home right now. We move at the end of the month and have a BIG list of projects! Project number one will likely be painting!

  70. I’m going to install soaker hoses around the foundation of my home – very necessary here in Texas.

  71. I just finished refurbishing a desk I bought on Craigslist :) I ruined the top with an awful power sander, and want to try another one…but not without a gift card ! :)

    Thanks for the giveaway! Love your blog!

  74. I live in a rental with many of the original hideous 70’s furnishings. First on the list: Cover bathroom floor with vinyl that can be removed later. Second: Restaining my tallboy dresser like CG. Third: Something involving aqua spray paint, I can’t decide yet.

  112. Oh my gosh! A Home Depot card would be terrific. We are 80% (hopefully) through a major addition/remodel of our home. We had 2 bedrooms and 4 kids, so we added some space. Now we have walls and floors to finish, along with all the other odds and ends.

  113. My next project is my kitchen remodel: I plan to paint the kitchen cabinet fronts a creamy white and put white beadboard on the exposed sides of the cabinets.

  132. We just tore out all shrubs in front of our house–junipers and holly-ugh! Would use it to purchase a couple shrubs and flowers!

  133. I have been spiffing up the outdoor space. We already got new cushions for my wicker set and our planters are overflowing with flowers, but it could use some more touches–pillows for the patio and an awning would rock!

  142. I would like to start with matching my (garage sale find) 5$ end table to my recently rehabbed coffee table (also a 5$ garage sale find). That will entail staining on top and a coat of semi-gloss poly, and black matte paint on bottom. Love the contrast! Also, on a funner note, I’ve become obsessed with making a Terrarium for indoor plants and I need supplies! :) Fingers crossed!

  143. My next project is building shelves in the basement/garage workshop. $50 could buy a lot of 2×4’s!

  144. This weekend we are working on a new dining room table for my daughter. The church my husband grew up attending was recently remodeled. My father-in-law was able to rescue a large number of the kneelers from the pews. We have spent many hours stripping the fabric and padding from the kneelers. Last weekend we got the last of the tacks pulled out. This weekend we will start sanding the wood. The wood is over 100 years old and is beautiful. My daughter will have a piece of family history in her home. My in-laws were married in this church. Over the years we have attended baptisms, weddings and funerals at this church. We are looking forward to sitting at this table in our daughter’s home.

  145. We just found out we’re moving overseas and need to spruce up the bathroom before we rent this house!

  146. We have a few projects we need to tackle this year. As you drive up to our house the first thing you see are two ugly huge propane tanks. I want to hide them with plants since I can not put a fence around them.

  147. My next project is going to be a wood plank panel to hang our tv on. It will look better than it sounds!!

  148. My next project is to clean the basement! If I get really ambitious, I may re-waterproof the floor and walls… maybe.

  149. We’re just about to launch into a master bedroom overhaul, replacing a large bank of old, original windows with a new triple French door that leads out on the the back patio and boxing in a big reading nook/home office area (also original to the house) to create a walk-in closet. In conjunction with those big projects, we’re also going to seize the opportunity to repaint and replace the carpet in that room – it was well past its prime before we bought the house.

  150. I’m working on my kitchen. . priming paneling/walls right now. Then I have to paint the whole thing. So it’s going to be a long project and I’m gonna need lots of paint. :)

  151. We are in the midst of finishing our bathroom right now, but as soon as that’s done, we tackle the kitchen. We bought our house from my grandparents and the kitchen is currently pink; pink backsplash, pink walls, and pink countertop. Can’t wait to tackle it all and get rid of the Golden Girls PINK!

  152. We just bought a short sale this week and have a slew of home projects to begin! Top of the list is a kitchen remodel!

  153. My next project is to replace the treads and railing on my stairs.

  156. Project 1863 is the name of our next project. We bought a Victorian house built in 1863 that was in one family the entire time and hasn’t been updated since a out the 60s. Fabulous charm but def needs a facelift. :)

  157. We just built a home and have tons of yard work to finish…landscaping, seeding,etc.

  158. Well well well…what to pick from…let me think! I suppose I would have to say I would like to do a few updates in the room I seel to spend most of my time in …that being the kitchen. I would love to upgrade both the counter tops and the flooring in my kitchen!

  159. I’m already working on the next home improvement project–the yard and gardens. I’ve installed a rain barrel, top-dressed and over-seeded the lawn, and now I’m working on the gardens. I think I’ve already gone through about half of the 3 cubic yards of triple mix sitting in my driveway!

  160. My next home improvement project is my daughter’s playroom. She just turned 1 and has a million toys in our great room. I just bought a new rug for this space and it’s a lighter color so I feel pressured to hurry up and get started on her playroom! Her playroom will be in the basement so I have a lot of work ahead of me!

  161. I’m working on fixing up my bedroom, painting furniture and the walls.

  162. My project: Perfect Pantry. I’m clearing out our pantry and reorganizing the heck out of it! I’ve been pinning dream pantry ideas on Pinterest and have so many ideas how to get it ready to accommodate the food and household supplies for our family of five!

  163. Oh my gosh! I have a master bedroom, toddler’s room, laundry room, dinning room and bathroom to paint and put in new window trim, baseboards and flooring. We put an addition on our house and have been slowly working on our many objects.

  164. “Tell me what’s your next home improvement project? Is it painting, gardening, a repair or room remodel? ”

    All of the above. We just started this week on remodelling the kitchen and master bath. We’re also replacing our floors. And I have to do some gardening. Lots of work to do in the next few weeks.

  165. I’m still on the lookout for great outdoor furniture for our balcony that’s not ridiculously expensive. Here’s to hoping!

  166. We are in the throws of a backyard makeover and a giftcard would really help – everything from a new shed to stone patio and rescreened porch, flowers, etc. We need it all! Thanks.

  167. My husband and I bought our first house this past fall. A foreclosure, enough said. We have made good progress and I am very blessed that I don’t have to work. But, one income means A LOT of DIY that I do single handedly while my hubby is at work and our two boys are running around the house. Next room up is our master bathroom that needs a complete overhaul.

  168. I am staining my backyard fence next. I’ve never stained anything before, so it should be interesting.

  169. It’s all about the garden this spring! I need some new planters for the porch! Thanks for the giveaway!

  170. I am changing up our headboard, it was upholstered and I barely got to cleaning it up, solid wood underneath all the stuffing and what not. Now, I am debating what to do to it, paint it? stain it? don’t know yet. But 50 bucks would be awesome to begin with :D

  171. I want to add some legs to our currently flat entertainment center! This means a trip to the HD for legs and spray paint!

  173. Next project…..BATHROOM! I live in a 1938 bungalow with the original canary yellow and black tiled bathroom. It is a sad room that needs some serious updating…..hopefully with some vintage inspired, modern functioning additions! The dream is to add some white bead board to the walls and white subway tiles inside the shower.

  174. We just bought a house built in 1976. There are so many projects to do! I would LOVE to build some simple shutters to play up the architecture.

  182. I am in the midst of a new kitchen and eating area remodel and could really use a HD gift card!

  183. We just bought our first house, and the first thing on my agenda is new paint for almost every room!

  203. My next project is building a pergola in the backyard… can’t wait!

  204. A new basement floor. One of our littles left a garden hose running down the outside wall of the house for a few days last week. Days of waterflow down your exterior wall=new basement floor.

  212. I’m having trouble deciding! I have about 10 ideas for the “next thing I’m going to do” at any given moment. I think the next one will probably be putting up shelves in my bedroom.

  213. Like at least one other reader, I need a new kitchen faucet. The leaky sprayer on the current one is getting completely out of control.

  214. we need new blinds! oh and i would love to repaint the living room!

  215. We’re remodeling our guest bedroom and bathroom but the next step is our cave of a bedroom. I’ve also been gardening (growing our own veggies) and hopefully we’ll get the weeds to die and the lawn to grow. If we can swing it I would love to repaint the living room and make new curtains for the living room too. Right now I’m working on making new curtains for the guest bedroom.

  216. We are going to be painting our formal living room and installing some crown. I need A LOT of paint because the ceilings are over 20 ft high. Hope I win, but good luck to all!

  217. I would give to my daughter who is fixing up a home they just purchased!

    Love your blog!

  218. Oh where to begin? Perhaps with replacing the 27-year old, pull-chain toilet in the guest bath? Or better yet, some cushions for our porch furniture so we can actually sit out there!

  219. I can use it for so many things, like a new kitchen faucet, updating all the baseboards, and gutting out the backyard to make it all sorts of pretty!

  220. My next project will definitely be outside. My house is pretty darn cute on the inside, but has zero curb appeal. I must fix this!

  223. my next project (hopefully) will be painting the bedrooms. I have had swatches of paint on the walls for almost six months but have still yet to actually paint anything.

  224. We are building our walk in closet. Could use for crown molding or the long pending nose job for the kitchen cabinets :) Thank u

  225. My next project I think will be making a bookshelf center like you did for the Alma project. I loved that and the map! To die for!

  226. I would use it to pay for part of the bill towards RE-doing my husband’s attempt of a DIY flooring project. Its a nightmare :(

  227. We have about 10 projects going on right now but the main ones is our office, master bedroom & stairway!

  231. We currently have three unfinished projects.. our patio fire pit (currently a mud bog with pavers everywhere), our bathroom (needs new paint after I got a wild hair and tore off the bead board), and the nursery for the new little one, (paint, paint, paint). Soooo 50.00 would totally help one of these poor sad areas! :)

  232. Just bought a house…so almost everything is a project…even packing!!

  237. Top of my summertime wishlist – heiche blue vinyl wainescotting for underneath my front porch ceiling. I know southern homes frequently have a blue ceiling, but I think it’s beautiful for New England, too!

  238. We are working on my daughters bedroom, a new curtian rod I have had a eye on at Home Depot would be the frosting on the cake… plus a few summer flowers or shrubs to spruce up our yard out front :) Oh how this would make my day!

  239. Where to start? I would love to take advantage of this weather and do some gardening!

  240. Two projects are in my immediate future – painting a bedroom for my son and LOTS of gardening to do!

  241. Painting everything! I want to repaint my dining room chairs to minty green instead of spring green, paint my dining table and my husbands dresser white, and paint a glass front bookcase that serves as the linen closet white and turquoise.

  242. We have some painting projects to finish in the home we just moved into–also redo and add to the flower beds at our new to us home. And when that is done–start a renovation of our kitchen–badly needed…..

  243. I have curtain rods and curtains to hang in the bedrooms and living room. I also want to paint my bedroom and the kitchen.

  244. Working on our kitchen now for 3 months and hubby is getting ready to repair a wall and paint.

  245. Our next home improvement project is the master bathroom! Ripping out the old shower and tub and reconfiguring the space.

  246. Strip the wallpaper in the MB and paint, tile the floor, well, a whole makeover.

  247. I need to paint and put up frames in my front room…it is just white walls!!!!

  248. My next home depot project is upgrading my kitchen. I purchased a new dishwasher at Home Depot on Monday while they were having a sale and yesterday my significant other bout a cabinet refacing kit to take us from the seventies into present day. LOL

  249. We just bought a house and we have several projects to tackle! Bathrooms, kitchen remodel, and backyard! Im in over my head! LOL :)

  250. Our next project is a wall of built-in bookshelves around our fireplace.

  251. We had to gut the backyard of the home we recently bought to get rid of the bamboo that had taken over the ENTIRE yard. We now have a backyard full of dirt and are trying to figure out where to start and what to plant. We need everything from sprinklers to grass to flowers, plants, fruit trees, etc. $$$

  252. After the living room, then we need to paint the doors we just had installed, and then finish the base moulding throughout, and then….

  253. We are putting crown moulding in our kitchen/family room! Well…. that and about five million other things I want to tackle….

  254. My whole house is the next project right now!! We just bought our first home and are in the middle of a complete remodel – currently working on painting walls and making curtains…

  255. Paint some furniture. Maybe my kitchen table and chairs. HMMM maybe turquoise or cream. The coffee table needs a serious face lift.

  256. Our backyard has been over taken by weeds, time for a major over haul! Home Depot’s garden department is calling our name!

  257. We are in the process of installing new floors, painting the entire inside, knocking out a wall to expand the living room, enclosing part of the garage laundry area to make a “laundry room”, AND turning a portion of the patio into an enclosed sunroom. Whew! So tired just thinking about it…but so very excited!

  258. we are just back in the states from two years living in bosnia. we have TONS of home projects to tackle, but i think i will start with painting the outdoor furniture to enjoy the deck in this beautiful weather!

  259. Need to freshen up the kitchen with paint and new moulding for the kitchen doors.

  260. I’ll be doing gardening once the weather is stable enough for flowers, but in the meantime, I am going to be finishing up my guest room I started decorating around Thanksgiving. I’d love the giftcard to buy a lamp and paint for some projects.

  261. We’re working on the sun room right now… I may never finish the putty-sand, putty-sand cycle. The former owners didn’t put any drain in there when they added the room, so the water damage is pretty bad in some spots. So is the damage from plant roots that took over, twisting underneath the trim and floor. But enough putty and sanding will fix it!
    So, finish puttying then prime and paint the trim.

  262. I am working on two projects, sprucing up my garden and patio area and remodeling the bathroom. This card would sure come in handy!

  263. I have a WHOLE house that needs a little something EVERYWHERE!!! Let see the door way needs framed out? The back door (and front door now that I think of it) needs repainted? The wholwl down stairs bathroom NEEDS help? Do I have to pick just one?

  280. We built our house a few years ago, so every spring, I try to add more to our landscaping. This year, I’d like to add a few more trees, and I’m planting more around our patio. A gift card towards plants would be great!

  281. We just bought a home. We rented and lost our that home to the flood last year and instead of trying to find another rental, we took the plunge and purchased.

  353. Home Depot rocks! They were so helpful when I remodeled my kitchen and bathroom. Now I am working on my garden and installing an irrigation system. A Home Depot gift card would enable my garden improvements go much further than my budget allows.

  354. While we have a LOT of projects going on in our house right now, the biggest undertaking at the moment is the nursery! Our baby girl is due in August and we are hoping to have a cozy room for her. It will also be the guest room when we have visitors, so we have been building custom pieces of furniture that are multifunctional.

  355. Moving one of my daughters into my other daughter’s room to turn that room into a hopeful foster child’s room!

  356. Just posted your giveaway on my FB:) thanks for these great giveaways.

  357. Taking on a backyard makeover. Big yard, big job!!! Trying to garner divine inspiration to make this project fabulous!

  358. I am going to redo the stairs (in my breakfast room pass-through) by taking them down to the actual plywood (removing ugly carpet), adding dark hardwood stairs, new tobacco twist banisters painted white, and a sisal runner to the hardwood. The Home Depot $ would be a great start!

  359. We’re considering putting our house on the market, so we have a lot of tweeking to do. We need to paint the front porch and deck, replant some of the flower beds (the deer have been busy), touch up some of the walls inside, etc., etc. :)

  360. My next home improvement project is giving my plaster walls a skim coat to get rid of the horrible orange peel texture. I have many projects on the list but this is the main one I want to accomplish.

    Thanks for the chance!

  361. Many, many projects! Landscaping, roofing, replacing rotting doors, new carpets, yikes!

  362. We are building another raised bed this weekend for more veggies. Inside the house I am going to decoupage one wall in my office in vintage advertisement posters. Wish there were more days in a weekend!

  363. Just posted a link to my Facebook wall! Whooo hooo! Would love to win this. Going there in a few hours!

  364. For my next project, I’m searching for an older floor set television to turn into a dog bed for my puppy. In the meantime I’ll be refinishing an old jewelry box to match my new bedroom set.

  365. The on-going list of projects is huge! Probably the most pressing would be refinishing a dresser for my soon-to-be-born twin girls. Please pick me!

  366. We are putting all new windows in our home, new siding, painting all rooms and adding new woodwork and trim everywhere inside. Whew we are going to be busy. Doing this all by ourselves.

  367. My summer projects include painting the master bed and bath and working on painting and organizing the game room. A gc would come in mighty handy and Home Depot is my go-to store! In fact, I’m on my way now. It is Saturday morning. Where else would I be?!?

  368. my next project is working on the landscaping around the pool! I want it to be an oasis of relaxation :)

  369. updating a dresser , finishing my pantry , starting my kitchen makeover! so many things

    Great giveaway .. thanks for hosting

  370. Since my 2 oldest have joined the military and are leaving next week and in July, I’ll be doing lots of painting…specifically the bedroom!

  371. We have the front flower bed that needs a total makeover, and I’m getting ready to clean-up and clean-out our son’s bedroom now that he’s off at college. Lots to do – so little time, and even less $ to work with – will be fun to see how (and when) it all turns out.

  372. I’ve been telling me 9- year old daughter that I’d make her a new bed and paint some of her accessories the colors she wants, not what we choose for her! Also want to add some organization to her closet to contain the stuffed animal zoo she’s collected.

  373. Well I guess I have to be honest, I’d be regifting the card to my mother. After being out of the workforce for a year I’m just getting back on my feet. With the help of my mother I wouldn’t of survived. She adores the outdoors and says her yard work is her therapy. So after the countless hours of therapy she gave me during a very rough year for me i’d pass it on to her. She loves being outside doesn’t matter if its weeding her flower beds, tending to the garden or mowing she loves it.

  374. I just bought my FIRST HOUSE!!! It’s an old rowhouse, so it is full of projects to do (redoing upstiars layout, adding bathrooms, digging out the basement amd finishing it).

  375. My husband and I moved into our first house on Monday and this weekend we are tackling our first project together! Every room in the house has a horribly green accent wall. So, we are painting today and it will be an adventure!With your advice from this blog, we are ready to transform this house into OUR home! :)

  376. I am going to put up curtains and paint the living room in my new apartment. I would also like to finish a small tiling job. :)

  377. My next project starts this morning. Heading out to Home Depot soon. Planning on painting 2 old shelving units (circa 1980) from ugly faux wood to white. Am planning on painting the backs of the shelves either turqouise or celery green and perhaps may install that paintable bead board wallpaper on the backs first (if I can find the wallpaper in stock). I will be painting old Ikea coffee tables the same colour (either green or turqoise). I will also be painting a set of drawers white and may (or may not) put them in my livingroom -I’ll decide once I have seen the finished project and whether or not I like it in the space. If not, it may go in a storage area.

  378. We are starting to remodel our stairs from carpet to stained, so a gift card would come in handy for supplies.

  379. We just bought a house and will be moving in in 2 weeks. It has royal blue and hunter green carpets, green marble tile and wallpaper on almost every wall. So yeah, this would put a dent in things! :)

  380. I’m going to be painting the interior rooms of our new addition. Behr paint + primer, here I come!

  381. Way too many projects in my head! Building a new shelf in my laundry room and putting new wood chips in my front garden on high on the list right now. Thanks for the giveaway!

  382. My next project is Let’s Get Down and Dirty in the Garden! I’m ready to plant. I’ve tilled, spread organic fertilizer compliments of my sheep, and I’m ready to dig in!

  383. I’m going to refinish a dresser that has been in my family for years. Never done this kind of thing before so I’m really excited about it!

  384. Spring is here in PA so my next project is gardening! Flowers for my containers and I want to try a container garden this year. Wish me luck with that! ;)

  385. We’ve gutted our second floor and starting from scratch! Putting in a bedroom and entertainment room.

  386. We are beginning to start a playroom renovation. We have a retro pool table and want to design the rest of the room to fit the look of the pool table. It will be a lot of work, but a very exciting project!

  387. we are in the middle of a complete kitchen remodel. By the time we finally get this done, I think we are going to need a good long break from projects. Although that carpet is looking really dingy……

  388. My next project is built in bookcases in the den and then painting the dark cypress paneling in there! Can’t wait for light and airy!

  389. So much to do, so little time/money. I think first, I want to paint my white walls in my office to something more soothing and interesting.

  390. I’m hoping to tackle a family room makeover since it’s the only room in the house that has not been upgraded since we moved in seventeen years ago! Home Depot Gift Card would certainly come in handy!

  391. I will be putting a hair salon in my basement! It will be a mix of industrial& glamour and will have many DIY projects. Wish me luck:)

  392. New Kitchen! I have no kitchen! Well, we’re in the middle of a remodel, new cabinets and all. After weighing the pros and cons of moving or remodeling, we decided to stay in our current home and refresh the kitchen.
    Just about an overwhelming project at times, but I will have a kitchen eventually. Took out and donated old 1970s cabinets, and now trying to put it all back together. So difficult choosing tile for a backsplash – I would use any “extra” money to purchase beautiful tile!

  393. We’ll begin our finishing stages of the outdoor kitchen and patio area redo by building a stone retaining wall around a new flower bed and then desiging the landscape in that area.

  394. Just the amount I need to finish refinishing a gorgeous dining room table!! This would buy the products to sprig and refinish and buy three boards for a room divider!
