I emailed them again today to be sure the offer was still open (it has been a month) and received a prompt and gracious reply in the affirmative. So this is an offer for $20 to use on any of their sites.
I have been meaning to get photos of a project I want to get started on. And this giveaway gave me the incentive I needed. My under stairway wall….
Messy, isn’t it. At one time, there was a large television that fit snugly into that space, it was tidily tucked inside, all cords and dangly things hidden behind but that beast bit the dust. I searched hi and lo for another television that would fit that space but I was tough out of luck. Before buying our behemoth flat screen t.v. we made do with looking at the hole and the smaller t.v. It was okay in a pinch. My idea for this wall is to close in the holes and put boards horizontally across the entire thing, on the cheap. Like pallet boards…but my pallets are buried under this…
So that kind of puts that project on the back burner until this stuff melts off, which could be in short order if it warms up. But in the mean time I can shop for a very much needed LCD TV stand, which is exactly what CSN wanted me to link to.
(ignore all the extension cords running across the floor, a temporary electrical problem, which has now been tracked and will be repaired tomorrow, thank you PG&E)
As you can see our LCD t.v. is just sitting on a garden bench I had built a year or so ago. The DVR and sound system are just sitting on the floor. Not much style just making do for the present. I visited the TV stands offered from CSN. I found some pretty nice ones. I was intrigued by the Fireplace t.v stands. We have a woodstove so I don’t need that feature but I thought it neat for those who don’t have a fireplace or woodstove.
So on to the good part…I am going to make this very easy for everyone. To enter just leave me a comment. You can tell me if you think the horizontal boards (kind of a cottage look) is a good idea on this wall or just say ‘hi’.
For my next post I am working on a backyard chicken article, especially for a reader who requested more info on my chickens.
Tomorrow, my mom and I are going to get our Black Copper Maran chicks. Woo hoo!
Contest will end March 8th at 8pm.
