Yo Yo! VOTE for ME!!

Ok folks, I'm shamelessly plugging my entry in the EPIC giveaway over at Vintage Revivals. If you haven't been over there, go now. Seriously, stop what you are doing, follow the link and just go.

Still here? Fine but don't say I didn't tell you. Anyway, Mandi is awesome (no not me, Mandi, although I'm awesome too), Mandi of Vintage Revivals. She is uber creative and some of the stuff she comes up with just blows my mind, not to mention makes me feel like I need to troll all the second hand stores in my neighborhood looking for stuff I can revive. For those of you who were too lazy interested in my post to check out her blog, here are a few of my favorites:





Isn't she just fab?! Anyway, the reason for this post you say? Only the most awesome giveaway EVER! She's giving away her talent and time (and money!) by flying out to someone's house and doing a makeover!! How totally fantastic would that be?!



Now in order to even be considered, I must first show you the space that I would have her make over if I happened to win this makeover. After thinking for a minute about which space I would choose, I picked our formal living/dining room. Technically it's two separate rooms but because it's so open, they kinda flow into each other so I'm going to pretend it's just one big room :) Just go with it.

It's the first room you see when you come in and it's kind of embarrassing that it's the last room to be decorated! You know I love doing projects around the house...remember the banister, guest bathroom, framed mirrors and wall art...this room though is my kryptonite. It leaves me weak and defeated.

Ok, ok, it's not in horrible shape, it's just not in shape. I'm not complaining AT ALL. I'm just saying I need help. There are so many possibilities, so many options. I just don't know which way to go. Plus, if I have the chance of someone doing it for me...for free?! Heck yeah I'm gonna chance it ;)



I'm not afraid of color...clearly the green walls tell that story


There are also lots of pieces of furniture and accessories that are just waiting for some Vintage Revivals love



The couches still have life in them and my plan was to reupholster them but clearly that hasn't happened  



Awkward spaces, weird arches, and no motivation = an unfinished living/dining room. 


So here's where you come in. Once the giveaway closes to submissions, Mandi is opening it up to voters. So write it down, make yourself a little note, put it on the fridge, in your Outlook calendar, on your iphone, whatever...VOTE FOR ME. And for those of you who didn't write it down, don't you worry, you know I will remind you when the time comes.

You have a ton of cool stuff that Mandi could pick through. I can totally see that wall of mirrors that you mentioned. I love the green walls, and the little darling crawling through to sneak a peek at her momma. Too precious.

Love your house. I think Mandi could be just the trick you need! Did you make your 3 piece black and white art?

Thanks Claire! Yes, I made the wall art. You can read about it here if you'd like http://thespottsvilledaily.blogspot.com/2010/05/diy-wall-art.html
