There were so many great entries and I’m a true believer that things happen for a reason. The winner truly deserved to win and I’m happy for her (the duct tape entry). Check out her entry – it’s touching and she definitely has a challenge on her hands. Congratulations Melissa!
You know my bathroom will get done one way or another. There won’t be a $5k budget but lots of DIY projects and fixes and perhaps even Santa will surprise us with a new toilet seat! lol I guess we continue to learn DIY by trial and error just like everyone else – well, except Melissa. Unless anyone else out there (DIY Network? HGTV? Lowes? Home Depot? Santa?) hears the 9 other finalists pleas for help and in that case…all DIY Show Off followers are awesome and I wish there were prizes for all of us. Now that’s a dream! lol Honestly … I’m a thankful for what I have. We’re blessed. Mr. DIY and myself will sponsor our bathroom makeover along with the other gazillion DIY projects in our farmhouse as funds and time permit. It’s real. It’s life.
Thank you to everyone who voted! It was a fun time! I feel like a winner. Support from my real life friends and family and online friends was overwhelming! I was lucky enough to meet two new amazing friends (Meleah and Aimee) who were also finalists and we’re planning an online pity party complete with violinists and maybe or maybe not alcoholic beverages to forget sharing our most embarrassing DIY disasters with the www! Just kidding – we’re all happy to have been chosen finalists and had a blast with the “dream”.
Thank you all for your support and encouragement, my dear blog friends! You’re awesome!
