  1. I would love to update our master bathroom. We haven't made any changes in the last 10 years and have just started looking into ideas. New fixtures, sink and would love a spa tub. We would need to do it ourselves due to cost. I would love to win- thanks so much!

  2. I don't have my own home but I'd give this to my boyfriend for Xmas because we do lots of diy home projects together at his place :)

  3. We need to redo our guest bedroom. New lighting is definitely needed. We love Home Depot and my husband would be so happy if I won!

  4. I know my mom would love to fix up the living room some more. It would be great to get some carpet or a rug and change the curtains as they are a bit old. We got some new furniture, but a darker tv stand would be great to match the rest.

  8. My kitchen is really awful. I made the mistake of picking colors myself: red and yellow. It reminds me of eggs & ketchup every time I walk in there. I need home depot to sponsor a "How to Tile for Dummies" too because I'd love to put up a tile backsplash myself...a daunting project for someone who lacks a craft gene.

  56. My daughter 24 and I just moved into a new place, in fact we're still moving things in and have to have the old place empty by 9/29. So we have a long list of to-dos. The room that I need to work on the most is the master suite, which is my daughters. I got the 2 smaller rooms for myself. Her room needs window treatments shelves, and has a built in dresser that needs a new top built on. Plus I'ld like to make her a headboard for her platform bed and a screen for her treadmill.
