Ace Hardware $50 GC Giveaway and the Merry Paint Makeover Contest!

Last Updated on November 16, 2012 by

My husband and I are one of those odd couples that actually enjoys browsing through hardware stores.  One day when the kids were young and we had a rare afternoon free we actually used our kid-free hours on a trip to Ace Hardware!  Odd, yes but we like planning ways to improve our home and doing things yourselves is much cheaper than hiring someone to do it!  We try to avoid those HUGE hardware stores because we feel that our local Ace Hardware gives us much more personal service.  Their employees know what they are talking about and can really explain all the ins and outs of a particular project.  Even something as simple as a drain snake!  Well, Ace Hardware wants to help YOU make over your home this winter with their Merry Paint Makeover Contest!

I bet just about everyone has a room in their house that could use a coat of paint.  I know our hallway walls are streaked with dirty kid fingerprints and the plain shade of eggshell in the playroom does NOT inspire feelings of playfulness!  Well, the Ace Hardware Merry Paint Makeover Contest is the perfect way to jazz up your home with a splash of color for the holidays!


How do you enter the Ace Hardware Merry Paint Makeover Contest?  Just head over and Like Ace Hardware on Facebook.  Then, fill in your information and submit your photo that shows what room in your house is in desperate need of a makeover. Make sure to read through the contest rules while you are there. Here are a the prizes:

Grand Prize (1) –  One room makeover by one of our Design Experts in December
Runner-Ups (3) – An e-design room makeover from one of Ace’s Design Experts and Ace gift card to purchase the paint and sundries to complete the makeover in December
You must submit a photo and a 100-word description of a room in your home to enter. The contest will conclude on November 26 and winners will be announced early December for projects to be completed just in time for the holidays!  I got the chance to check out the new Ace Hardware Paint Color selection and they have some great colors to choose from.  I would go with a mellow shade with pops of bright color for the playroom.  It would be a HUGE improvement over the bland white that is in there now…especially since I could finally get rid of all the fingerprints!
