Last week when he was here for his Scott’s Antique Market shop-a-thon, Top Design super-star Eddie Ross and I cooked up a little contest to celebrate this week’s publication of THE FIXER UPPER. So here’s the deal:
Leave me a comment about one item in your home on which you’d like to have Eddie perform his FIXER UPPER magic. Maybe it’s that tired country cutesy kitchen window treatment, or your Aunt Mildred’s fugly mahogany china cabinet, or maybe it’s a sofa—a dreaded plaid Herculon nightmare from your early John Denver decorating phase. We’ll have a random drawing, and one winner will win a FIXER UPPER photo consult with Eddie. This means you’ll email him a photo of the item in question, and he’ll come up with a magical solution to your design dilemma. And I’ll send you a personally autographed copy of THE FIXER UPPER. Deadline is midnight June 30. Let’s review:
1. Comments only.
2. Only one potential fixer-upper item please, not an entire room. Eddie’s a genius, but he’s not Houdini!
3. Do NOT send me a photo of your item. When we announce the winner, that person and that person ONLY can email a photo of the fixer upper item.
4. We’re talking inanimate objects. Let’s keep it clean, okay?
5. Eddie’s FIXER UPPER solution will involve suggestions. He’s really not prepared to show up at your crib brandishing a can of spray paint and a glue gun.
