  1. What a fun giveaway! I could use this for so many projects at my house…..maybe I’d pass it on to my son and let him pick out a new paint color and bedding for his bedroom!

  2. Awesome giveaway! I’m working on my bedroom right now and I really need curtains!

  3. I would use it to take my boys to the beach for the day. Probably not the most responsible thing, but something we all need.

  4. Fun giveaway!! My family is moving in two weeks, so I’m sure we would spend it on some project for the new house – probably paint!! Thanks for the chance to win :)

  5. I desperately need storage/organization pieces in my craft room. That’s what I’d spend the money on!

  6. oh, I’d be so excited to win. I’ve always got some project going on… so it would be put to good use somewhere.

  7. I would use this to help with getting paint for my new place next summer or a few little home decor items I may find. :)

  8. I would spend $100 on baseboards for the kitchen we have been remodeling inch by inch since 2009. We have baseboards, pantry and the desk left to do =)

  9. I would spend it on items from thrift stores, Goodwill stores and Michaels, working on my own DIY projects and looking to re-do my master bedroom which is blah

  10. My washing machine just broke and we are in an old house so we had to rip out the door and part of the wall to get it back in the bathroom. Yes the washer is in the bathroom so I would love to get busy fixing that and updating the bathroom which needs a total overhaul. Love your blog.

  11. We’re about to move to an overseas duty station so we’d love to use it to get settled in our new place!

  12. I would use it to buy fabric to recover the windowseat in my bedroom and the ottomon under a mirror in my bedroom. Thanks Traci :)

  13. My son & daughter-in-law just had a new baby boy. I would give to her to complete his room.

  14. It’s a toss up. Either I would use it for a new comforter set for the guest room OR vacation spending money. Either way, I would be soooo excited to be your lucky winner =)

  15. As much as I’d like to say something exciting, in all honesty it would go to groceries. Well, that’s exciting to me anyway! Who knows, maybe I’d buy something that wasn’t on sale. :-)

  16. thanks for such an awesome giveaway! :) i would def take my 5 year old somewhere fun for the day like the aquarium or kings island :)

  17. I voted yesterday. I bet we picked the same one. :) I would use my $100 to complete my laundry room & office cabinet painting escapade…..lots of work.

  19. My family just moved into a new home and I would spend it at Lowes or Target getting so many things we need!

  20. What a great giveaway! We are finishing the basement from scratch. Every little bit helps.

  21. I am torn between getting the mini chandelier to finish off my sewing studio or updating my laundry area into an “awwww” space of cleanliness. It’s in my garage but I want to make my laundry area sparkle and beg me to visit, as I love doing laundry.

  22. How fun is that! I could use it for almost every room in my house. Probably a rocking chair for my porch that I will have to find a great yardsale. Thanks

  23. O
    I would use it to start buying the wood for planking my daughters bedroom walls. Two walls & a big dormer have 13 year old wallpaper on them. I am covering those walls with wood planks & the other walls will get fresh paint. Thanks for the chance for a great giveaway!

  24. Snow cones – lots and lots of snow cones! :) And maybe something a little more practical, like a new pair of shoes.

  25. I would buy new sets of towels for my bathrooms. Thanks for the chance to win!
