***This giveaway is no longer accepting entries***
I’m not even going to dance around this one: we’ve got a $200 Home Depot gift card up for grabs.
This week’s stellar prize comes direct from Home Depot themselves as part of their “What’s Your Pro Project” contest. But the good ol’ HD isn’t just asking about your upcoming heavy duty projects, they’re looking to lend a hand too. Thanks to their 1,200 local Tool Rental Centers, you can borrow over 325 professional tools, from power and hand tools to yard, garden and electrical equipment. Sure beats buying that aerator you only use once a year.
So if you want a shot at the $200 gift card, first check out their selection of tool rentals and then comment on this post with the phrase “GOTTA GET A [insert name of tool you’d most like to rent].” That’s right, to be eligible for the prize you have to tell us what tool you’d consider renting AND what project you might tackle with it (sorry folks, we’ve gotta be sticklers on this one). For instance, I’ve already been daydreaming about renting a powerwasher to do some heavy duty clean-up on our front porch. Plus, who doesn’t like cleaning and looking like a badass at the same time? If only I could powerwash the dishes…
Alas, we’re not eligible for the prize (soooooo jealous of you guys), but at least we get to hear about all your power tool fantasies and the pro projects you might be tackling soon. Entries will be accepted until Wednesday, March 25th at 8pm EST and the prize is only available to United States residents. The one, randomly selected winner will be announced later in the week. Good luck…
Any other questions you may have are answered in our Giveaway FAQs. Screen grabs courtesy of Home Depot Tool Rental Centers.
I gotta get a power washer, with spring in the air it would be nice to power wash our stamped concrete patios in the backyard!!!
Gotta get a mid tine tiller so I can get my garden ready for summer and all of the vegetables we like to grow.
Gotta get a pressure washer so we can prep our deck before we restain it!
Gotta get a pressure washer! Our driveway needs it badly!
Gotta get a compound mitre saw so we can FINALLY tackle the addition of crown moulding across our entire downstairs.
GOTTA GET A Demolition Hammer or a 2-Man Hole Digger. The next major project for my husband and I will be our tiny postage-stamp sized backyard. We need to break apart the old patio (that is currently directing water to the hose), tear down the old fence, and put in a new fence and patio. We may end up getting some help with this project, but would love to do some of the labor ourselves!
I gotta get a lot of tools, but first up is a tile saw! I have had my adorable basketweave tiles that I bought for my bathroom sitting in my basement for over a year. Um, ok, maybe almost two years. It’s really quite pathetic.
Gotta get a tile saw so I can redo my HIDEOUS kitchen floor.
Gotta get a tile saw, airless paint sprayer, and power washer! This spring is going to be super busy at our house with tiling both of our showers, painting our master bedroom and den, and cleaning the outside of the house as well as the deck and fence.
I would rent a power washer for two purposes (it might be a long rental period) 1. to wash our house. We have cream colored siding it always looks dingy. And to strip our wood deck in order to re-waterproof it. Both are on my mental spring to do list.
Gotta get a tile saw (and redo the bathroom floor)! Though a power washer would be nice too…oh, and a tiller (to make myself a veggie garden!)…
Man, can I just take one of everything?

Gotta get a finishing nailer! I want to install crown molding in the dining room as well as trim in each of the bedrooms (three total). This would make my life a lot easier!
GOTTA GET An electric breaker. We are wanting to install a second bathroom in the basement. No more fighting over the bathroom in the morning!
GOTTA GET a plate compactor. I desperately want to spruce up our backyard for the summer and would love to install a small stone pavers patio area. I can picture BBQs, lawn games, and our new puppy running around now!
Gotta get a rear-tine tiller! Our backyard is a sad, brown wasteland that needs grass and landscaping ASAP. We have a little puppy on the way with no yard to play in. Help us create a puppy playground!
Gotta get a tile saw!
They seems like a pretty popular tool here, and for good reason. I’m planning on installing hardwoods in my place, and have decided to knock down a wall and redo the kitchen floor at the same time. Since knocking down the wall will expose some floor, half of it will be covered in hardwood, and the other half tiled.
gotta get an airless paint sprayer so I can stain my new fence this summer!
Gotta get a carpet cleaner! With two big dogs our carpets need all the help they can get!
Gotta get a carpet cleaner! Two big dogs in one small house says it all.
Gotta get a Paint Sprayer! Our shed is in dire need of a coat of paint to make it all spiffy.
GOTTA GET A mid tine tiller! The front flower garden of our house needs some serious TLC!
GOTTA GET A Airless Paint Sprayer… we are remodeling our basement and we need to paint 900 square feet so this paint sprayer would help out!
GOTTA GET A wet tile saw so we can add tile floor to our bathrooms.
Gotta get a Compound Miter Saw!
My husband and I are expecting twins in June and we want to put crown molding in their bedroom. We’re also redoing four other rooms in our house (one bathroom, two guestrooms and an office) — each of which needs some kind of wood trim. Did I mention that I’m also hacking some IKEA malm dressers by adding wood trim and decoupage?!

Gotta Get A POWERWASHER! Anyone say Mother’s Day present? She’d love sparkely clean siding!
Gotta get a Compound Miter Saw! I want to put up picture moulding in our dining room and this would be much faster than a miter box!
Gotta get an AIRLESS PAINT SPRAYER!! Fingers crossed!
Gotta get a pressure washer! Really, we want/need a lot of the tools but I think the pressure washer will make the biggest difference for us at the moment. We’re wanting to turn our attention to the outside of our house for spring and we have 2 porches that need to be cleaned and painted. Plus, our 65 year old brick house needs a good cleaning as well. We rented a floor sander from HD when we refinished our floors. Doing so save us a ton of money!
Gotta get an Aerator. We need to get the grass looking good for summer!.
Gotta get an aerator. Laws, that backyard of mine is a mess. I’ve considered stomping all over it with a pair of golf cleats. This seems like a much better solution.
Gotta get a power washer! Our deck needs to be cleaned and stained!!
Gotta get a miter saw so we can build some nice bookshelves with molding!
Gotta get a mid tine tiller!
In the six years we’ve been in our house, I have yet to tackle the large front planting bed. It is a mess of weeds, random plants, and some adventurous tree saplings that have taken root. It needs to be cleaned out, have the soil enriched, and planted with some new beauties.
So many tools! We just bought a house that we have to do a lot of work on. I think my top three tools I need would be the power-washer, Airless Paint Sprayer, and Floor Maintainer.
Our house is in pretty good shape, just needs A LOT of cleaning, buffing and new paint. The Floor Maintainer would do wonders to the flooring! We have been looking at home depot to rent, this would be a nice bonous!
Gotta get a REAR TINE TILLER. It would do wonders in our pursuit of small garden and laying some sod in our “mud hole” of a backyard :)
Gotta get a 2-man hole digger for installing a fence to keep my puppies from running wild!
Gotta get a tile saw! I plan to buy a fixer upper this summer and most houses in Miami have atrocious bathrooms!
Gotta get a Rear Tine Tiller! I am planning on putting in a large garden this year (thanks economy…), and am in desperate need of one of these babies!
Sarah M. says
Gotta get a tiller to start our vegetable garden! I’m hoping to get my toddler into vegetables by helping with this garden.
G”OTTA A GET A power washer — its time to clean the sideing before painting the trim
Gotta get a tile saw! I’d love a beautiful tile backsplash in our remodeled kitchen to compliment our granite counters.
Gotta get a nail gun to make putting up porch railings a lot quicker!
Kelly B says
Gotta get a finish nailer for crown moulding. :-)
Gotta get a PRESSURE WASHER for our driveway, front walkway, house foundation . . . the list is long, I could keep going :).

Gotta get a Drum Sander!
Woo hoo! Can’t wait to re-do the creamsicle orange hardwood floors in all of our bedrooms. We are really inspired after the amazing results you’ve had with your ranch home. Looking forward to velvety chocolate floors!
GOTTA GET A TILE SAW!!
We would LOVE to re-do our totally 80’s bathroom and that is just what the Dr. ordered! Thanks Home Depot and YHL!
Gotta get an Aerator to aerate and seed our back yard! We’re landscaping back there and it’s in need of some major TLC. We would also love the pressure washer for some deep cleaning to the outside and patio.
Gotta get a carpet cleaner!
My husband bought our home before we met…he picked out nearly white carpets for the main traffic areas (living room, dining room, etc). They are the bain of my existance! Gotta get them clean!
Gotta get a Tile Saw. We are puttin new tile in 2 bathrooms, a big kitchen, and our entry way. We have an old house with linoleum and carpet in kitchen and baths. YUCK!
