I‘d love a chance to become famous! How about you? Well, let me share some exciting news with you about True Value! They recently launched the “DIY True Stories” Contest<http://www.facebook.com/TrueValue?sk=app_240597572632386> on their Facebook page! This contest gives determined DIYers the chance to tackle a home improvement project that they did not have the money or tools to do so. From now until August 22, people will be able to dish out their DIY dilemmas and the three who plead the best case will win staring rolls in their own DIY web series and $2,500 towards product at True Value.
Contestants will be able to enter by first “liking” True Value’s Facebook page and then sharing a project idea via photos or a video submission. The three winners will then start recording their project’s progress from start to finish in a five-part web series that will be featured on True Value’s Facebook page. They will also receive $2,500 to put towards their project, along with in-person consultation with a “Master of All Things Hardwarian” at their local True Value store.
Do you have an outrageous, shocking or just plain overdue home improvement project on hand? Don’t be shy. Remember my embarrassing bathroom makeover when I entered a True Value DIY Dilemma a few years ago? I needed a little extra cash or help getting it done. I didn’t win but you don’t have a chance if you don’t enter! True Value is asking ambitious DIYers to tell all for a chance to win $2,500 to complete their project, receive expert advice to help them get the job done right and the opportunity to star in their very own DIY web series on Facebook! I know if I had the opportunity to give that a shot, I would reveal my worst DIY nightmare again!
From July 7 to August 15, DIYers looking to get their hands dirty will have the chance to submit their wildest home improvement nightmare. To enter, you’ll have to first “like” True Value’s Facebook<http://www.facebook.com/TrueValue> page, then share your project idea, what you need to get the job done and what you would do if you won. It’s as easy that that! “DIY True Stories” can be submitted by crafting a brief project description and uploading photos or submitting a video featuring the DIYer and the potential DIY project.
Then on August 29 when True Value will announce three winners! Each winner will receive an in-person consultation with a “Master of All Things Hardwarian,” or True Value employee, at their local True Value store and $2,500 to help them get the job done. They’ll then chronicle their project’s progress in a five part web series that will be featured on True Value’s Facebook page and savor the spotlight as DIY reality stars.Enter for a chance at DIY stardom by visitingwww.facebook.com/TrueValue<http://www.facebook.com/TrueValueand clicking on the “DIY True Stories Contest” tab.

I was one of the bloggers selected by True Value to work on the DIY Squad. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program as well as my writing about my experience. I have also been compensated for the materials needed for my DIY project. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
Coming soon – in order to fix the feed, the DIY Show Off will soon have a new look. Unsuccessful attempts have pushed me to switch to my own domain. Thanks for your patience and sticking with it while I work out the bugs. 🙂
