Refresh and Renew!

This winter marks the TENTH winter my family has spent in our home.

That means 10 winters of dirt, slush, salt, sand, and snow.

Every spring since I bought my home I have looked into ways to renew and refresh my flooring. While ultimately I know I need to tear out this decade+ old carpeting and replace it with wood, tile, and modern rugs, it never fails that something else comes up, occupying the funds I need to replace my flooring, and I end up with a band-aid solution like getting the carpets cleaned.

This year, as I look around at my carpeting, I make my annual commitment to reserve my tax returns for new flooring. I fill my head with hopes of flooring stores and estimates. I spend countless hours perusing the over 200 websites available in the CSN Stores network, looking for just the right accessories to compliment my new, beautiful flooring.



Fortunately for you and your home improvement goals, CSN Stores is offering a $130 single use gift code to one lucky Only Parent Chronicles reader!

Say wha?!? $130.00?!?

That's right, my friends! $130.00!

To win: This giveaway is open to residents of the U.S. and Canada. If your email address is not visible in your profile, you must leave it in your comments.

Giveaway will be open from 9:00am January 7, 2011 through 5:00pm January 21, 2011.

Mandatory entry: Visit one of CSN Stores 200+ websites and tell me how you would spend $130.00.

I would spend the $130 on storage or shelving units because we live in a mobile home and have no closet or attic space.

Andrea (ace1028) said...

Well, aside from wanting to spend all of it on kitchen stuff, I'd probably get a new bookshelf set for the child. Actually, THIS would rock:

But I'd love to win anyway. I haven't slept in over a month and my comforter set is over 10 years old. I'd use the gift certificate for a new set - Laura Ashley Avery to be specific!
