You know that feeling when you get great news and you can’t wait to tell your BFF? Well, that’s how I’ve been feeling ever since I finalized the plans for this contest. And today I’m finally spilling the beans!

One of my lucky local readers is going to win a room or outdoor space update compliments of The Home Depot, Home Decorators Collection, and this blog– and it could be you!

Y’all know my philosophy of decorating is that it can be done on a budget and still be done well. And anyone can do it! Well, just to prove my point, I’m gonna show up at someone’s door with $500 and a big bag of creativity and we’re gonna get to work!

Whether it’s a kid’s room, family room, outdoor porch or other space– I’ll do my best to give it an update you’ll love, and you can help, too!

So how will it work? Simple! Anyone in my Knox County, Tennessee area is eligible to enter. Just email me at least 3 pics of your space, a description of it, and how you’d like to use the space once it’s updated.

I will choose 3 finalists from all the entries based on my ideas that I think could be done with the space, and from those 3, all of you will choose the winner based on the highest number of votes!

Then, I’ll come up with a design plan, go shopping, and the winner and I will get to work on the space! It’ll be a fun and exciting process to see the room evolve and even more fun to see the reveal!

All finalists must be willing to be featured on the blog (and possibly TV) along with before and after photos of their space.

You don’t live in Knoxville? First of all, I’m sorry! But, guess what? You still have a chance to win a $100 gift card to Home Depot to usetoward updating your own space just for being involved in the voting process! Stay tuned for more on that later.

Now, you have until next Friday, May 2, 2014 to send in your entries! Please follow me on Facebook, on Pinterest, and Twitter. Then, take those pics, send them in, and spread the word by sharing and pinning and pinning and sharing! Then stay tuned to see the finalists announced soon!

This is gonna be fun!!!
