{Contest Closed} CSN Stores $40 Giveaway!!


The painting bug bit last week so I've been re-painting all of the interior walls of our "beachy"home. It appears that the "contractor's white" paint hasn't been touched since 1989 so a coat of 'Vanilla Brandy' paint (looks like warm sand on a sunny day) graces the majority of our walls now. A lovely "light aqua" color on the guest bath walls and "seaglass blue" as an accent in the living room have really updated things. The guest bedroom is next on my painting list and the room's furniture really needs updating too so I checked out bedroom furniture sets at CSN Stores and was pleased with their large selection.


If you're not familiar with CSN Stores, then let us introduce you! CSN's product categories cover everything from cookware, ultra modern furniture, bunk bed-office combinations and fitness equipment to gaming chairs, grills, greenhouses and much more. Beyond stellar customer service, their 200+ sites offer the largest selection of items for most home and office goods.


CSN recently contacted us to either review a product or provide a $40 gift card to one of our lovely readers...of course, we chose the gift card for you! We browsed through their stores and found some lovely items which you may want to consider using your gift card for . . .
 
Sea and Land Print Set - A perfect set for any sea lover! Each print is 13" x 13" square...4-piece coordinating set available for purchase together or in sets of 2 .


What time is it? Time for a new clock! The Infinity Instruments IMAX Costal Weathered Seaside Wood Clock is absolutely adorable and reminds you to relax, relax, relax. The seaside clock is designed by Carolyn Kinder and looks good in any cottage or beach home!



Love cottage decor? The Howard Miller J. H. Gould and Co. II Wall Clock  is an authentic facsimile of Old World craftsmanship which captures the charm of the past. 



We love pillows and know you do too! The Thomas Paul pillow collection, launched in 2001, was originally conceived of as an idea of utilizing the silk printing mill's capabilities for home accessories instead of personal accessories. Since then the line has steadily expanded into other categories apart from silk pillows to include tabletop, stationary, and lamp shades. The ultimate goal being to have products covering every aspect of the home, all with Thomas Paul patterns gracing them. 

We love this Thomas Paul Crab Pillow in Aqua ~ 100% linen fabric showcases a crab pattern and aqua color design...filled with feather/down insert for a luxurious feel.



It was difficult to select just one of Thomas' pillows so we chose two! LOL! We also love this Thomas Paul Aviaire Blancs Stork Pillow in Cream ~ The heavy weight burlap pillow features leather piping and will instantly make any room more elegant.


I think that I literally gasped with excitement when I found this set of 4 salad plates! They will bring a touch of class for entertaining all of your guests and they are affordable and stylish entertaining pieces ~ The Casa Moda Driftwood Salad Plate Set is superb!



Every beach house MUST have a slip covered sofa (well, you don't actually "have" to have one but they sure are charming!) The Sure Fit Cotton Duck Loveseat Slipcover really is an economical way to change the look of your couch. We have three dogs and one cat so this is absolutely on my 'must-have' list.


Last, but certainly not least is this AWESOME room divider ~ I'm not sure where I'd put it, but I know I'd find somewhere. The Wayborn Cape Cod Lighthouse Theme Room Divider is the pinnacle of perfection. With the trio of lighthouses, you can bring Cape Cod to your own porch, beach home, or living room. 



So now that you're drooling over all the fabulous beach cottage products that CSN Stores offer, let's get to the giveaway.
