Celebration Giveaway!


I'm celebrating a new milestone here at My Domestic Bliss by offering a giveaway to all of my faithful followers.  Early on I was determined to get as many followers as I could, foolishly thinking this would give some credibility to my humble blog.  Somewhere along the line I realized that it's not quantity, but quality that matters.  That's why I'm not concerned with numbers anymore, but with getting to know each and every one of you better - that's my new goal and that's what I'm celebrating.  I'm celebrating YOU!

I've worked with CSN before, offering giveaways or reviewing their great products.  And once again, the wonderful folks at CSN  have generously offered to give $45 to one of my followers to spend any way you wish at one of their 200+ stores that sell everything from pet accessories and baby stuff to everyday kitchen items and home decor, including some of the most amazing upholstered headboards I've ever seen! There are over one million products online at CSN! If you haven't already checked out there site, then grab a cup of coffee and a comfy chair, cause you're gonna be there for a while!  It's fabulous!


Why did I mention upholstered headboards?  Well, cause they are the bomb-diggity these days!  I see them all over and I love them for their originality and the richness they add to an otherwise blah room.  Some of you may remember that last year my sweet In-Laws lost everything to a house fire.  Over the past year they've moved back in and have been replacing furniture with my help, almost entirely via Craig's List.    We managed to complete the downstairs (click here to view), and now it's time to begin work on the upstairs, specifically the Master Bedroom.  I'm so excited to tackle this room because it is so spacious and there's lots to work with.  Our only problem so far has been finding a bedroom set on Craig's List that comes with a King sized headboard.  No luck.  So what I've decided to do is find a neutral upholstered headboard that would go with any style furniture.  


Here are some beauties I fell in love with at CSN:




Love the diamond patter on this one.




And the curves on this one.


Classy button-tufted.




Same one in a different shape.


Can you tell I like white?  Well, not to worry because there are tons of others to choose from with many different colors, fabrics and styles.  


Of course I will share pictures of the new Master suite when it is completed.  These are just some ideas to get me started.


So, if you'd like to enter my giveaway, just leave a comment telling me you are a follower.  That's it!  Easy peasy.


I will pick a winner in 2 weeks!  
Due to certain restrictions this giveaway is limited to residents of the continental US only.  


Thanks for checking in and good luck!
xoxo,


Kim

I couldn't agree more, Kim......the quality of followers and commenters is far more important than the number of followers! I am glad to have followed you all this time...did we start blogging about the same time? Don't remember! But it's fun to see your projects and things...how sweet of you to help your in-laws with building back up their household. I love those upholstered headboards, too. I have a Cargo bunk bed that I've thought long about making into an upholstered headboard...just have never done it. I think it would be much improved! Thanks for the inspiration!
Please add me into your giveaway!! :D
How far along are you? I'm visiting my new grandbaby and let me just say, she is unequivocably adorable!! :D

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I am a follower! : ) I still need a headboard for my Queen size bed. It's been almost 5 years without one, but at least I've narrowed down my choice in that I want to get one in the shape similar to the last picture you show. Not sure if I want wood or upholstered - that's been my major going back and forth issue.

I am a follower and have been for a long while, however I do not comment much...just here and there (I do this with all my blogs as I follow over 900), so I pick and choose on a daily and weekly basis who to visit and who to comment on...it is not personal, but it is definitely not possible to visit and post on 900 blogs daily not even weekly.

It is so nice and loving of you to be so helpful to your in-laws :)
