Dreaming & a super cool GIVEAWAY!!

Every now and then Lee & I discuss putting our house on the market and moving into something a little bigger.
{you know, for the "future"}
But then we start thinking about all the things that we would probably need to do to the house to get it ready to sell.
And the discussion ends.
ha!
One major undertaking would be to fix up our bathroom.
It looks cheap and I painted it hideously when we moved in.
Nobody sees it but us so I can tolerate it.
But it needs work!
Ever so often I start dreaming about what I would do to get it like I like it.
I would add some vanity items & my bathroom starts to look like this...
These lights.
But I would need 2 of them.
That's one set of lights for each sink.
I am done with sharing 1 sink.
2 is a must.
:)
Those lights would go over 2 of these mirrors.
I can do that right?
2 sinks, 2 separate mirrors??
Sure I can.
It's my bathroom.
It will be a his & hers bathroom.
With "hers" getting a little extra space.
And because I am dreaming here, I want my 2 mirrors & 2 sets of lights to go over this.
Yep, that is a bathroom I could get excited about!
{after I repainted the ugly walls of course}
But I might not want to move!
ha!
________________________
Anywhooooo, here's the deal.
CSN stores have generously donated a $60 gift card to www.justvanities.com for me to give away to one of my blog readers.
Cool, huh??!!!
Maybe you can get something to help spice up your bathroom rather than just dreaming & rambling about it!
And actually there is alot more stuff on that site besides just bathroom stuff.
For instance, someone with a little girl needs to get one of these.
This piece is sooo sweet!
And I love this scalloped mirror!
:)
So want to win the gift card??
Just leave a comment here telling me what you would get with your gift card.
I will randomly pick a winner Wednesday night!
So comment away people!
Have a great day!

I would use it as a door prize/raffle item at my crop in September.

Susie Q said...

Ooh...Gretchen....what a fun giveaway!! You are so funny about your house....I hate the thought of having to move ever again....entirely too much work!!!!

Anyway, not that I would win because, let's face it, with B as a friend, who else can ever win anything :), but if I did I would most definitely spruce up my poor, neglected scrap room!!

Tish said...

I'd like that scalloped mirror also!

I need a new light to go over my vanity. What I have is cheesy 80s style and UGLY!

Lorrie said...

What a great giveaway! This would be perfect for me right now as we are in the process of re-doing our master bathroom so we can sell our house. It's the LAST room to renovate! Maybe a new light fixture?!

Deanna said...

Actually 2 sinks, and 2 mirrors is the "in" thing right now. Don't you watch HGTV?! (kidding.) If we were to win, we'd fix up our bathroom(s) too. Living in a 60 yr. old house has its drawbacks.

Barb said...

I would put it toward this for my granddaughter: http://www.justvanities.com/Childrens-Vanities-C13972.html

Nubia said...

I am planning on doing some redecorating while the boys are gone this month. I wasn't planning on redoing a bathroom but I am sure I can fit that in, especially the half bath.

Just call me b said...

Ahhh, nice! There are several things I would buy with it!!!

But, I would probably buy lights for Chapman's room, poor thing, it is sooo dark in there!

Teri said...

I desperately need a new ceiling fan in my living room. It's a vaulted ceiling and the pole is too short (I can't change the bulbs, turn the blades or clean it) cuz its way too high and I don't have a ladder tall enough! So when my handsome 6ft tall son visits, he gets to clean it and turn the switch!! Plus I'm single and don't have much extra $ ex: race registration or fan??HUM???

owliecupcake said...

Oh, I would put it towards this medicine cabinet. http://www.justvanities.com/Elite-Home-Fashions-7442-EHF1186.html My bathroom just has a small vanity and virtually no storage, so that would be perfect. Of course, it would be pretty nice in my scrapbook room with some primas and mini books stored in those bottom spaces too...

P.S. Saw your page today on the sassafrass blog. Congrats!

melissa said...

Oh I just loooove the little girls pink standing mirror! So stinkin sweet! And I say go for the bathroom renovations!!

Sarah said...

Well, as a new reader of your blog, I have to say, I am impressed. Thank you, Facebook, for letting me know about cool stuff. Let's see, if I were to win your giveaway, I would put the gift card towards any number of vanities, lighting, and/or mirrors. We have our house on the market to move in to something in to town, read: something much older in need of a remodel! I could definitely spend that gift card.

Michele said...

Oh....I am redoing Kayleigh's room so I could definitely use some new goodies for her. We're doing her a special new room since brother is on the way and she's feeling a little left out.

Susan Pond said...

I have moved into the scrapbook/ basement of Michele's house and need some goodies to decorate it up!

MomofFourChippets said...

I just discovered this store not so long ago and go back to it and dream ever since too! Well, to be logic, I could use it towards about anything for the bathroom in the basement since we finished the basement and next and last is the bathroom to finish but....with 3 boys and a girl (sometimes boys rules in this house) I would love love love did I say love:) to get that for my girl!

What a great giveaway!!! I, too, need to spruce my home up - we have lived here for 13 years and when we moved in we had the intention of doing some things to it, but one thing lead to another and now with one in college and one going in a year, it doesn't look like we will have any extra $ left. LOL I am not sure what I would do with my winnings, but I have to say - those mirrors you posted are calling my name! So pretty! And that desk is to die for!!!

Heather said...

Oooooh so many pretty things they have. What would I get...well we are in the process of closing on a 1959 house & the toilets are original (though in surprisingly good shape for 50yrs old)so you can imagine the rest of the bathroom needs some love and updating! So I guess my answer is what wouldn't I buy - I need it all :)
