I hope you’re enjoying your holiday weekend!

For some reason (probably related to my blondeness), I forgot that when I posted my porch makeover earlier this month I was also supposed to give away a $100 gift card to Lowe’s.

  1. I’d use the $100 to buy new pots & plants for my front porch/sidewalk … and a new hanging pot, or two, as well! And if I could get hubby on board, I’d actually use it to fix our front step (wood) that’s sagging badly & needs to be replaced.

  2. I would repaint my front porch furniture that REALLY needs it! If I had leftovers, I’d look for some pretty pots for flowers on the front porch and then move on to flowers for the flower beds!

  3. Our flower beds are in desperate need of some beautification!

  4. Kristen says:

    I’d love some patio furniture/cute outdoor rug!

  5. I’d love to get some new bushes for my front yard!

  6. Stephanie says:

    I need to paint my front door and garage and shutters to give the house an instant facelift!!

  7. Melissa says:

    I would love to paint my front door and do a porch makeover.

  8. stephanie says:

    Patio furniture or flowering shrubs. We’ve spent all spring ripping out overgrowth and regrading. Adding color and a little comfort would make it complete!

  9. cassie k says:

    It would so be grass for the front yard as our died last summer. And I would fix up or wanna be flower area.

  10. Stacy T says:

    I’d work on some borders for our front flower beds!

  11. I would buy some weed control and mulch for my front yard!

  12. Thanks for the chance! I would use the Lowes card to spruce up our walkway. It is rock now, but could use some curb appeal!! Maybe some stepping stones?

  13. We could use some rock for our side yard!

  14. I would buy mulch for my flowerbed and some extra rosebushes. Would love to be able to get a Topiary or two for by my front door. Thank you for the chance to win!

  15. Danielle says:

    A $100 Lowe’s gift card would go a LONG way to make over the balcony of my new town home :) New cushions for my patio furniture and some new plants would be fabulous! Still moving in….hope to be done tomorrow!

  16. New outdoor furniture to be purchased when we buy a new house!

  17. I would buy a new saw because there’s a tree in my yard that needs a haircut.

  18. Andrea Zachary says:

    Oh,, definitely my front porch, too!

  19. Janice Herbert says:

    curb appeal…anything I did would add to the curb appeal. BUT specifically i would re do the planter below my front window…it is a horrible mess!!

  20. I would like to get paver steps in my front yard tot the door.

  21. Donna in SC says:

    If I won this giveaway I would buy a paint sprayer so I could refinish 2 lawn chairs I got from the curb! Thanks for the chance!

  22. I rent a town house, so some flowers and something to make a decorating welcome sign for the door would spice it up a little bit!

  23. I inhearted my grandfathers vintage yard chairs so I would get the paint to redo them, then I would get solar lights for my walk way then buy supplies fo make a flower bed to go along the walk way. then I would sit outside in my picnic area in my new redone chairs and enjoy my flowers in the new flower bed.

  24. Would apply it towards a new door that is our main entrance! Do you have a clue how expensive doors are? Really!

  25. I’d buy more paint to get the exterior painted. Or new blinds for our front windows so all the windows match.

  26. I would use it to put up new short fencing around my flower beds. I have three in my front yard that need a bit of updating. :)

  27. I need patio furniture! Other cute patio things would be a major plus.

  28. Toni Brooks says:

    I would set up a drip irrigation system up my driveway & then have fun landscaping the area.

  29. I’m in the middle of completely landscaping my entire yard. I am using some landscaping rocks from lowes, and I need a ton more. About $100 more. It would be AWESOME to be able to complete it!

  30. I’d get some cute solar lights for my precarious front walk/steps, and a couple new bright flowering bushes.

  31. I’d put it toward some fencing that we need for our yard. We have already found what we want at Lowe’s, by the way. We recently put in a block wall in an attempt to give ourselves some flat area in our back yard. The wall is 5′ high. That would be quite a fall for the grandbabies, so we need to put some fencing along the wall.

  32. Callie Greenleaf says:

    I would love to paint my front door so that it’s not plain white and I would add some planters with flowers.

  33. We’d add some more lighting to the front of our house, prettier window treatments, and maybe some classier numbers. We don’t have a porch, so there isn’t tons to do, decor-wise.

  34. Michelle says:

    We’re moving, but I’d like to plant some flowers to make the house look better for the next residents.

  35. Christine Aldinger says:

    my front porch needs paint…..front door needs paint….deck needs alot help (power washed and all the good stuff that goes with it) etc etc etc…..i’d have no problem spending a 100!!!

  36. I’d love to use the gift card to get some pretty plants for our porch. We’re in a rental while we’re finishing up school, so I would need to do some projects that can move with me, and not be permanent. I don’t think my landlord would appreciate a permanent change! :)

  37. Sheila Laurence says:

    It’s the back of the house so maybe isn’t ‘curb’ appeal, but we really need to refinish our deck!

  38. HELLO! THANKS FOR SHARING!
    WOW! DOES OUR FRONT PORCH NEED PAINT ! I THINK THAT’S WHAT I’D USE IT FOR-SOUNDS LIKE WORK,DOESN’T IT? HAPPY MEMORIAL WEEKEND!

  39. Do new raingutters count for curb appeal? Practicality adds cuteness, right?

  40. I would use it to buy planters and plants, a new mailbox, and maybe some solar lights! My porch really needs help right now!

  41. I would use it to change up the landscaping. Right now we just have day lilies (which are nice) but that’s IT. And I’d love to have some more color.

  42. My front walkway garden needs some flowers and mulch. Right now, it is blah!

  43. Sallie Fitzpatrick says:

    I would definitely get some plants for my front yard or perhaps supplies for a water feature I saw recently! :O)

  44. ruth tacoma says:

    I’d like some solar lights to put along the pathway to my front steps.

  45. Usually I don’t enter too many giveaways, but this one made me laugh. Haven’t posted about I t yet, but we were just involved in a big house fire. What couldn’t we use that gift card for! Per-fire I would have said new house numbers and outdoor lights.

  46. I would definitely get some new plants for around the house and perhaps some patio furniture!

  47. I would use the $100 gift card to weed and seed our yard. It’s so dead it’s not even funny! Our yard is probably more weeds than grass, and half of that grass is dead. It’s embarrassing.

  48. I would love to put in a flower bed.

  49. Angie C says:

    I would love to build a cinder block bench I have admired on BHG.com

  50. Melissa says:

    This is a tough question…..I’d probably put in a few new plants and spruce up my 2nd floor deck that is right in front, some flowers, maybe a cute chair or table.

  51. Flowers and shrubbery!

  52. Bailey C says:

    I would love new porch light fixtures and lamp post, the current ones are in bad shape. $100 would be a good start-lighting is freaking spendy for anything decent…thanks for the chance!

  53. We need pops of color in the front yard. Something that can really handle the Florida heat!

  54. Lauran Frank says:

    We have an area in the front corner of our yard that is right where everyone comes up the driveway. It is terribly in need of some love and curb appeal!! It’s pretty much just weeds and three bushes there now.

  55. Great giveaway!! My flower beds need desperate help and I would paint my front door.

  56. I would re-plant around our porch…it really needs some help…

  57. I would love some plant that could withstand my constantly shaded porch area. And maybe repaint some outdoor furniture.

  58. Destiny says:

    I’d add some flowers in the flower beds, a small planter on the table on the porch, some hanging baskets & maybe a fresh coat on paint to the front door.

  59. I would love some patio furniture for our front porch!

  60. Where to start?! :) I would probably buy lumber for a pergola!

  61. I would replace my mailbox and put some ornamental grass around it!

  62. Well as the biggest curb appeal thing we need to do is remove a giant dying tree in the front yard, and I don’t think that $100 gift card will really help with that, I’d say some more plants for the side garden!

  63. I really really desperately need to do something to make the empty flowerbeds in front of my house pretty. I’m thinking daisies and poppies and getting rid of the bark chips and the spiders living among them.

  64. AhhhhM just about everything! We spend soooo much money already at Lowes.

  65. Margaret R says:

    I am getting my house ready to put on the market. We need to replace the front door and the deck so that is what I would do with the gift card. We are getting ready to start building our dream home this fall so I could use the card for either one. Thanks for the chance to win.

  66. We are getting ready to put in our yard so we need everything!!! I would use that gift card to buy a nice fruit tree or two!

  67. MelodyJ says:

    There are so many but probably the most impact would be to remake the short wall at the edge of the front yard. Going to put flagstone in front of it and replant the grass behind it.

  68. I would use the prize to buy paint for my front door and for some new pots and plants. We are in desperate need of some curb appeal!

  69. Cokette says:

    My garage! And definitely a new rug like yours!

  70. Amy Bounds says:

    Flowers!

  71. I would redo my flowerbeds in the front yard.

  72. Our house faces east, so even though it’s only are all 6 years old, the door and door frame are all peel-y and yuck. I’d buy primer, paint, and courage to take on the project, If there’s anything left ,I’d buy some new flowers to take the place of the ones that ‘accidentally’ swallowed my four year old’s bubbles.

  73. We’re going to have a new yard with our new house, so I’d use it to get flowers, plants, etc.

  74. Percilla G says:

    I would spruce up my back yard which I have been wanting to do. THis would motivate me to get out there

  75. My front porch is a blank slate. I need some motivation. This might do it!

  76. I would love to use this to help out my flower beds! They need some serious TLC!

  77. Sarah H says:

    We’ve been working on curb appeal for 3 years now. We have yet to be successful…

  78. Oh my goodness. We have a planter along our driveway that is in dire need of a makeover. This would be awesome!

  79. My DH and son cleaned out a flower bed for me last year and filled it with rock. I would love to add a water feature of some sort to it, but have not tackled that project yet. We also have some landscaping timbers under our red-tipped shrubs and I would like to replace that with some concrete border. We have a lot of potential projects in our front yard!! Thanks for the Lowe’s giveaway!!

  80. Shellie says:

    My front yard is in a sad, sad state. I could use some grass seed and maybe a windchime to distract the eye!

  81. I can’t tell you what project exactly since we are in the process of buying a house and have yet to finish looking. But I do know we will have many soon! I love the Lowe’s magazine. I went through all of them the other day!

  82. Tammy Eblin says:

    It would be hard to choose! Either a rug, paint for the porch supports OR I’m dying for a chandelier for the front porch.

  83. Adrienne C says:

    I would pretty up the garden around the tree out front and change out the old rotted boards around it!

  84. I would use it to help my sister outfit her new porch!
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  90. Christa says:

    We could use some patio furniture!

  95. Shelley D. says:

    We purchased a foreclosed home late last year and ALL of landscaping in bad shape. If we won the $100 gift card from Lowe’s we could use it to replace our shrubs and incorporate some beautiful flowers or even flowering shrubs. It would be awesome!

  106. Michelle says:

    I would love the giftcard to help with repairing the stone wall that edges our driveway. Thanks for such a great giveaway!

  107. We just knocked down a stone wall that was hiding our house. It kind of left a trench. I Think I would get some planters and soil and plants

  110. I would tackle our balcony. It likes to stay covered with moss, but is a great place to watch the sunset. I’d like to grow some tomatoes and flowers and have a great place to grill, sit and watch the sunset.

  111. I have been wanting paver stones to line my driveway.

  112. Natalya Hoak says:

    Torri

  132. Swell giveaway! I would rip out the bed of …well I wont say weeds, it’s mostly some flower I cant remember the name of, that they sell for $5 each but they have invaded everywhere in my yard. I’d plant some more lovely and organized things there in the front instead.

I’m not usually a garden-flag type, but the pole is so obvious, I think it needs something. So, if I win, I’d get mulch, plants, and a flag.

    I would love to surprise my fiancé with giving a facelift to the corner lot that his cozy brick home sits on.

I’m thinking some landscape bricks, sod & flowers will make a world of difference at our future home together! :-)

  172. I would LOVE to put some potted plants in the front of my home!

  173. refurbishing our flower bed that is heinously overgrown. currently hoping to rip it all out, mulch the entirety of it and plop a decorative tree in there somewhere instead. :)

  175. Oooh, $100 at Lowes…the first thing I’d buy is this nifty retractable hand towel ring. For my half bath (aka where the kids wash hand a billion times a day and NEVER hang up the towel). Argh. It’d make my life grand!
    Jamie

  176. Mmm so many options lol. It would be one of two things though: 1. Our front area that is covered in rocks and weeds needs to be level led out, gravel put down and flowers along the pathway or 2. Flowers for the raised beds we created in the front but havent planted yet. I love your patio makeover! Thanks for remembering to do the giveaway!! : )

  177. I would splurge and get a nice bench to put out front or I might put some concrete in a little rock area I have and some cute potted plants.

  178. I would love to get a bench and a few plants for my front porch! It’s so ugly!

  179. Carole BB says:

  183. Tanya M says:

    We need to reseal our driveaway and get some plants for our flowerbed that’s currently growing a wild self-planted clover and another mistery weed with scary huge leafs. Beleave me when I say that it’s a very sad-looking flowerbed. :)

    My front door and the trim around the garage are in dire need of a paint job! They are dark navy and I want to go red!

  185. Shirley Lupton says:

    Wow, $100 to my favorite place to shop. I would work on the side of my house. We did the front but ran out of money to complete. Flowers, etc. (something that the deer won’t eat), sod and solor lights. Thanks for the chance to win the giveaway. I love your blog.

  186. Donna brown says:

    my husband spent today triming the front jungle (ummmm bushes!) now you can see our front door again! I would love to paint or replace it!!

  188. How sweet!! Definitely window box flowers and paint for our front door.

  190. Brooke C. says:

    I’d mulch my front entryway and add flowers

  191. We don’t have much of a front porch (but yours is lovely!), but I’d love to redo our front walk. The concrete sidewalk has gotten all wonky and was poorly patched by previous owners. I’d LOVE to put paving stones down instead. Thank you for the giveaway!

  192. We are a USMC family moving from a beautiful old home in MI to a beautiful yet cookie cutter home in MD in June and it NEEDS curb appeal – pots, plants, shrubs, new porch light and house numbers, a flag holder…..it needs to be personalized and made our own with a statement that says it is ours!

  193. Vicki I. says:

    We are working on a raised bed garden. $100 would help tremendously! Thanks for the chance to win.

  194. My house (and neighbors, probably!) would appreciate a new welcome rug and a chair to replace the old faux wicker bench that I’ve been lugging around for over 10 years.

    Thanks for the chance!

  195. I would definitely put the giftcard toward a new mailbox and shutters! Thanks for the inspiration!

  196. Oh wow. I can’t believe this opportunity!!! Just last night, I took photos of my daughter and her friend on our front porch. I tried as best as I could to keep the actual porch from showing. It is an embarrassment! Other than being clean, the porch lacks any personality or style. I would use the gift card to bring life to my porch!!

    Thank you for sharing your talents!!! Love your style!

  197. We have a small front porch that could use some attention. Paint and wood to replace one of the steps would be a big help and a new light fixture.

  198. I would like to make a bench for my front porch!!

  199. I would buy wood and supplies to make beautiful window flower boxes and replace my very drab plastic ones. If any is leftover, I would buy some flowers to go in them :)

  200. I would use the gift card to beautify my mailbox landscaping. It’s boring and uninviting – I feel sorry for the mail deliverer!

  201. I’d definitely use it to buy stones to edge my flower garden! Thanks!

  202. Becky N. says:

    We would put new vinyl siding on our shed – it is currently this sad, deteriorating wood paneling that was painted some awful shade of pink by previous owners.

  203. We want to put in new outdoor light fixtures for the porch and garage. $100 would really help. Thank you for the chance.

  204. Ashley M. says:

  207. Andie d says:

    I need some color outside! Definitely some cute planters!

  208. Thelissa says:

    My project would be flowers. Flowers in pots, flowers in boxes, flowers everywhere. We need a little color around here!

  209. I’d use the $100 bucks to buy more perennials for my front garden and rip out another old bush! I LOVE Lowe’s!

  210. Sarah E. says:

    Probably around the tree, it’s pretty pathetic looking!

  211. Kathy H says:

    I’d like to dress up the entrance to my front walkway. Some ornamental shrubs and a couple garden accessories would be perfect. I also want to put a walkway in from our back deck to the pool area. Thank you so much for a chance to help me complete my plans. Have an exceptionally blessed day, Kathy

  212. I would buy some new pots and (not dead) plants for my front porch/landscaping. And I really need a new welcome mat!

  214. devonna says:

    I would purchase 2 chair and plants some flowers to brighten up our front porch.

  215. First – PAINT. I’m embarrassed to say our trim is quite overdue….probably fine if you are driving by, however if you are ringing the doorbell – that’s another story. After that it would be flowers. I am quite behind getting the yard pretty this year. Your porch looks very inviting, love it!

  216. I would love to be able to paint the rocking chairs on our front porch and add cushions. Also I have a stand out there that would get a make over! Fill flowers in the pots already on the porch (we bought the house a few months ago) and repaint them. Thank you for the chance!

  217. I have a small front porch that I would like to screen in. Of course we could always use some flowers to “pretty up” the front yard too. Right now we have zero curb appeal. I think we have become the boring house on the street lol.

  218. Niki Blake says:

    I would LOVE to buy some bushes/perennials to plant. With the drought herein TX last year, we lost 3 HUGE trees so we have to start over. This gift card will be a GREAT start! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  219. I’d love some landscaping stuff to clean up the iffy landscaping my landlords did! Some brick to create a short wall, some mulch, even a few flowers. Anything to make the depressing landscaping look less accidental and more on purpose!

  220. charissa says:

    well the front of my house is ok it is my deck that needs the help. i would like to stain the deck and plant plants in my empty planter boxes.

  221. Roya gonzlaez says:

    I would use the gift card to some more color to my front.

  222. Marcy Divers says:

    I would use the Lowes card to green up my backyard with grass seed,fertilizer & more.We are the kid friendly house on the block.Not to mention Scout meeting place. Would love the weeds to be gone & fresh grass in it`s place for the kids to play on!

  223. Well technically our curb is 1/4 miles away from our porch, but it still needs some appeal. I’d have to re-rock some bare spots, paint the mailbox, and add some flowers.

    ~Bliss~

  224. My front flower bed needs some serious sprucing up! Also I’d like to paint the front door a different color.

  225. We’re in the process of working on our “curb appeal” (not to mention the indoor work). We just finished putting new windows in the entire house (took over a year). Next up is painting the house and landscaping.
    The $100 would go toward plants and landscaping materials. Right now our front yard is dirt.

  226. heather f says:

    we have a covered porch entry way that is blah blah blah. I have two wild grandsons and I would like to add a gate so they can’t get off the porch and put some fun but artistic touches out there.

  227. Jeni L. says:

    I would use the gift card for an update on the front door and shutters on the house.

  229. We are moving in to a brand new house next week and I need to but a whole front lawn!

  231. I would use the card to purchase lavender for my new flower bed and flowers for my hanging pots, etc. It surely wouldn’t go to waste! Thanks for the opportunity. :)

  232. Our guest bathroom is in total need of a $100 Lowes gift card…gosh that would be awfully nice! Especially the way this crap economy has been going. Our guest bathroom would go from “ooohhh yes, we see you started to do something here, good luck”… to…”wow, beautiful bathroom!” I will keep our lucky talisman’s in hand, lol!

  233. Julie Andrews says:

    I would like to put in a solar power water feature. The sound of bubbling water would be so relaxing!

  234. I’d like to continue redesigning our home/yard in Arts and Crafts style, with removing the siding porch post and putting in stacked rock posts.

  235. My curb appeal project would be bark! I have a large garden at the front of my yard with a lot of plants and lavender and it really needs bark to keep the weeds down and just look better.

  236. Oh, if I could only include a photo! Our front door (builder’s special white) desperately needs some color. And the lone half-dead azalea bush (literally one side blooms and the other, nothing) in the front garden needs to be replaced by something a bit more…Well, alive. Oh please oh please let it be meeee!!

  237. Sara Haaf says:

    A new screen door, or at least screen part for it.

  238. Bigger and better lights for the front of my house and if there was anything left over more flowers (one can never have enough flowers).

  239. anne voss says:

  240. Gwen Windham says:

    I can think of so many wonderful things that I’d like to do!! Maybe a birdbath or fountain!! Or a garden bench– or some pretty flowers… or a swing to hang on the porch… or a rocking chair… some roses to make a rose bed for the front yard… :-) The list goes on and on! Thank you for the chance to win! :-)

    • Gwen Windham says:

      just wanted to add my email address– I forgot and want to make sure you can reach me if I am the lucky winner!! :-) bamagirl(at)gulftel(dot)com

  241. I would love to add some new flowers in our front gardens and even some of those solar lights if I could find the right ones.

  242. I would use the $100 gift card to buy my husband a new grill. :) Not sure if that will spruce up our outdoors or not, but he would really love it :)

  243. I love your porch! We are in the process of moving across the country from Arizona to North Carolina. I am really looking forward to having a porch to dress up and make into the relaxing retreat I long to spend evenings in reading a book and watching fireflies!

  244. Barbara says:

    I really need to do a few projects: Paint the front door and make a vinyl ‘Welcome’ for it. I will pick up some new flowers for the front pots when i buy the paint, and I need to buy and put up a new mailbox and post, also with something irresistably vinyl on it in addition to the address!

    I would love to add some landscaping to the front of our house. We have some but it is fairly simple and starting to look a little worn.

  252. Hmm…..either a chainsaw or a weedwhacker. Or both. Or gravel, do they sell gravel? Probably not. Well, we’re redoing our whole front and back yard, and right now we have to keep to what’s free, so I don’t know. $100 would be nice. I’m rambling. I should take a nap. But I won’t. Cause that makes too much sense.

  253. Rachael says:

    Would wouldn’t love a free $100 gift card. I would probably get something for my Husband for Father’s day.

  254. Cassandra says:

    Our house is 95 years old and the porch is the last thing left to update! The steps had half brick stuccoed walls that were crumbling and the steps were coming apart in chunks! This weekend we attacked and hopefully we are conquering… We are looking to sell the house and really need everything done…paint, repairing concrete, some pretty eye catchers, curb appeal galore. If we didn’t have such a small budget we could totally use professional help with it. It is a nice porch that would be awesome if we could give it some TLC.

  255. Living in an apartment has been a big change for us, but I am slowly finding ways to make my little porch “garden” look very appealing. If I had $100, I would invest in bigger pots that could easily be seen by passers-by. I would also love, love, love to have some hanging plants. And, I would like to try growing some vegetables in pots on the porch; that is something I miss about having a nice big backyard.

  256. I desperately need a backyard makeover!! This $100 would sure go a long way towards that!! =)

  257. Definitely buy colorful perennials.

  258. Johnna Wilson says:

  268. I work at MakerPlace in San Diego, CA. It’s a ‘makers’ dream workshop with access to tools and machines to create anything I can dream of. I have a free membership to the shop being as I’m an employee, but I can never afford the materials to start one the many projects back logging in my brain! I’d love the $100 GC to make wooden weather proofed boxes for the porch to store peoples dirty shoes before tracking in the house, or other misellaneous outdoor tools like garden materials, or extra garden hoses. Cheers!

  269. My front porch area could reall use some potted flowers and my door could use some kind of decor.

    We are in desperate need of a new mailbox. Some hanging plants on the porch would be great too. Thanks for the chance to win!

  285. Natalie Q. says:

  289. Oh my gosh…I toootally know what I’d use my gift card on!! We just moved into my childhood home which we saved from foreclosure. It was not in our plans at all, but we knew we just HAD to step in and do it. It was a part of us. I am so happy that we did it, we now live here with my two younger brothers. Being that we had to put up a big big chunk of change to save it, we really have no budget for any improvements (till the fall..at least) I have been dreeeaming of painting and staining the deck and the outdoor furniture! The gift card would go straight to those materials! : ) Thanks bunches for the chance!

  358. Closing on new house in 13 days! It doesn’t come with any hanging baskets, lol. Some boston ferns for the covered porch would be perfect!

    I would like to add a new trees to my front yard or some more flowers.

  362. $100 could definitely be useful to add some potted plants and a little bistro set to our very big and very empty front porch!

  363. We moved into a house in town from always living in the country. If I were lucky enough to win I would redo the landscaping in the front of our house. What is there has seen it’s better days and needs to reflect us as the new owners.

  364. I would probably put it towards some new chairs and some plants for the porch – my porch is looking pretty crappy these days.

  365. Crystal Niemann says:

    I would use some Lowe’s cash to pump up my garden….its started but could use a little monetary input!

  366. We just found out we are going to lose our Japanese maple in the front yard so I would replace it with another one.

  367. Melissa says:

    We are buying our first home this summer and it definitely needs some sprucing up around the outside. I think I would use the $100 to add some pretty planters around the front door and windows.

  368. We have lots of differnet yard work projects we are trying to finish. The $100 would totally help us get those done!

    Some plants for my front porch and redo my door color

  370. We need some nice plants in our yard!!!

  371. Shannon says:

    I would paint the front door and replace the shutters.

  372. Christa S says:

    I really would like to add some plants to my front yard area. I also have been looking at a little bit of guttering to keep my garden from washing away! There are so many things I could buy at Lowes! :)

  373. Sandy M says:

    I would use it towards two rockers for my front porch and a new rug.

  374. I would use it to make over the front door. We’ve lived her 5 years and it’s still “builder boring”. And the little step below the door is still bare wood! Some paint, a new welcome mat and maybe some potted flowers would do wonders!

  375. Daffodil says:

    For a curb appeal project, I’d buy a new mailbox, a new porch welcome mat, and a pretty watering can. Not as a decoration, though — more as an incentive to water the flowers. Figure a new watering can is cheaper than new flowers, right? :)

  376. Our house sits really low to the ground and the bushes that were planted when we moved in have become too large for the front of our house. The first things we would do is post an ad on Craigslist for anyone who wanted them to come and dig them up then we would plant low lying plants to enhance the look of the front! We would also repaint the house.

  377. Jennifer Alexander says:

    Our deck is in major need of some TLC. This gift card would be great! Thanks!

  378. I would use it for some plants for the front yard. And some paint.

    Thanks for the give away. Crossing my fingers!

  379. Danielle says:

    To add curbside appeal I would use it to get paint to paint the trim around the garage, the shutters and the front door :) That would make me super happy!

  380. I’d love to get some mulch to put around my trees and a chainsaw to cut down all the CRAP on the side of my house. The previous owner lived in our house for EIGHT years and did absolutely NOTHING to the yard. It looks like it too. Sigh.

  381. Allison R. says:

    I would fix my god-awful tiny mailbox setup. My mailman squishes everything I get into a crumbled ball and jams it in the antique mail fixture that desperately needs updating! Thanks for the giveaway!

  382. We live in a neighborhood where all the houses look the same so I would want some type of decor so when people came here for the first time I could say, “Hey, look for the house with the swing in the front yard” or something like that ;)

  383. Fix the front steps!

  384. My next curb appeal project is to edge our front garden with some type of stone, repaint the front door, and replace the dead bushes we just ripped out.

  385. Katie Seamons says:

    Well we are closing on a house in a week that doesn’t have any curb appeal. At. All. So lets see. Grass seed? new door? new bushes/trees? paint for the exterior? ah… it could go towards a new garage door. You know one that isn’t peeling paint and 30 years old? any/all of the above!

  386. Redo the flower beds in front of our porch!

  387. Pots and plants and maybe a tree for the front yard.

  388. This is the first year that I have any outside space so our balcony needs some loving. I would love an outdoor rug and at least a chair to sit in and enjoy my coffee. I would make that $100 go a long way with a 10% off coupon I have waiting to use for such an occasion.

  389. Our flower beds need some major help – they’re all rock and no flowers!

  390. Becca FancyPants says:

    Paint overhang column, paint lazy chairs, or get a swing!

  391. Danielle Cahoon says:

    I would paint my door, stain my sidewalk and buy new plants to frame the entrance to my house. Thank you!

  392. I’ve been busy sprucing up my patio for summer. This would help me buy some plants to give it more color. Thanks!

  393. With $100 I would buy plants for my flower beds. We need some bushes to hide the ugly underside of the deck, and a muzzle to prevent the dog from digging it all back up. :)

  394. I’d use it to fix up our rotting deck.

  395. I’d use it to pretty up our front porch/yard area. I live in a 4plex so there isnt much space out front to do with what we want. But it’d be nice to spice up our little garden, repaint the front door and add another pot for flowers!
