Let me tell you a story… growing up I lived only a few blocks from my Grandma Terry's house, and would frequently end up there after school. From about the age of 10, the first thing I would do when I got to her house was hunt down her latest issue of Better Homes and Gardens. In many ways I have my Grandma (now 97 years old!) to thank for my longstanding love for Better Homes and Gardens and my early interest in home decor. Twenty years later, I started this blog to show how I'd improvised on ideas I had torn from the magazine…
...and now I have a 1 in 16 chance of being featured in an issue of Better Homes and Gardens! Can you imagine if I was able to show my Grandma Terry my photo in her latest copy? I would feel like I've truly made it. ;)
BHG has chosen my file cabinet makeover to participate in a March Madness style contest along with 15 amazing bloggers' projects! The top 4 get to travel to BHG's headquarters and complete another makeover challenge. The ultimate winner's project gets featured in the magazine! Does that not sound like the most fun competition ever?!
The Makeover Madness Challenge kicked off this week, and two projects go head-to-head each day for a single day of voting. Voting for my file cabinet makeover starts tomorrow, Friday March 7, at 9am CT. It is only one day of voting, so vote early and often. If only my Grandma Terry knew how to use a computer and I could get her to vote too! ;)
