Fab Freebie: Lowe-ded With Ideas

***This giveaway is no longer expecting entries – see who won below!***

Random.org once again spun its wonderful wheel of randomness and selected our two winners as… Amy @ Larryspearslive.com and Amanda Deerr. Congrats ladies!

Raise your hand if you want a $50 Lowe’s gift card. Or better yet, give me a “hootie hoo.” And if the thought of being one of two lucky winners doesn’t instantly get your brain spinning with all of the potential projects that you could tackle, Lowe’s Creative Ideas will happily fill your head with… wait for it… creative ideas. You may already know of the free Lowe’s Creative Ideas magazines (if not, you can subscribe to ’em here), but even we didn’t realize how much content they have on their website and Facebook page. And along with bigger building and DIY ideas they’ve also got decor tutorials (like stamping curtains) and crafty stuff (like making silhouette art) too.

    Idea Me!!!

    I’m generally not a creative person, but I would have to say using an old wooden Pepsi crate (found at flea market on the cheap) for use on my nightstand as a holder for phone dock, jewelery stand etc.

    I like to think our ‘wood walls’ have been our most creative ideas. We added wood to our office & guest bedroom to give the rooms a interesting looking. In the office we used cheap lumbar and the bathroom, cheap cheap linoleum that we just stained. Ah the wonders of wood.

    Idea Me.

    I just started using an empty milk jug to accurately measure the amount of water and plant food I use to feed my pumpkins. NO MORE ABNORMAL FEEDINGS!

    I built a vanity off of an ikea storage unit that I keep my clothes inside of, in our bedroom. Since we are a one bathroom family, it gives my husband and I some privacy while we get ready for work. And I can watch the ‘Today’ show while getting ready.

    IDEA ME!!

    My best idea has been buying any type of furniture I need off craiglist or a garage sale and turning it into a beautiful work of art! You get exactly what you want and save hundreds, sometimes thousands of dollars!! :)

    Idea Me!

    The most recent success was making a guest/ hang out space for free using things I had around the house and in the garage. (Almost free, I did have to get some new closet doors from Habitat)

    IDEA ME! My most creative idea… was when I figured out how to work with our gabled roof and odd ceiling beams. We painted them the same color as the walls and now the space seems bigger and airier.
