Today kicks off WEEK THREE of our DIY Dollars Give-Away—your chance to WIN the third of four $500 Do It Yourself Home Improvement™ gift cards this month. (Entry period for WEEK THREE is from 12:00 p.m. EST, Friday, February 15, 2012 until 11:59 a.m. EST, Friday, February 22, 2012. See Official Rules below.)
With spring just around the corner, imagine what you could do with an additional $500 towards an improvement at home:
Paint something. With a gallon of paint starting at around $25 you could certainly afford to freshen up a neglected room—or two or three. Or give your home’s exterior a fresh new coat and color.
Add some curb appeal. With $500 you could easily replace your front door, purchase some new exterior light fixtures, and add a planter or two to dress up the entryway.
Get organized. Use $500 to splurge on closet organizers, bins, shelving units and wall-mounted storage solutions to bring order to messy closets and cluttered attics, basements, and garages.
Jump-start your garden. While it still might be chilly where you live, in a couple of weeks you’ll have your hands finger-deep in the garden. Think of how many plants, bushes, and shrubs you could add to your garden with $500?
Install a patio or deck. While $500 might not be enough to cover the entire cost, it will come in handy as you plan your dream summer patio or deck. Have one already? Then put the money toward a new grill or a comfy, stylish outdoor furniture set!
