The 2014 Great Big Home & Garden Show Giveaway

The 2014 Great Big Home & Garden Show is hitting the IX Center from February 8th - 16th, bringing you over 600 exhibitors, demonstrations, celebrity performances, and more.
I have attended the show the last couple of years, and it's always a great way to spend the day. "R" and I enjoy working on our home, both inside and out. Okay, well I do, and "R" begrudgingly accommodates most of my requests. In the six years that we've been living together, we've made over every room in the house with the exception of our master bedroom/home office space upstairs. This included gutting the one and only bathroom in our house, painting every single room, and a complete kitchen remodel (which I still need to share pictures of with you). A show like this one is a great place to get ideas, meet vendors, and sample products.

I also always enjoy catching some celebrity and local chefs doing demonstrations at the Main Stage and Cooking Stage. The Loretta Paganini School of Cooking will be joining The Great Big Home & Garden Show by hosting a variety of local culinary experts with themed demos taking place daily.

You can purchase tickets in advance online for $11 per adult ($3 savings for purchasing online), $5 for children 6-12, and under 6 are free to attend. My readers can save an additional $1 off each ticket by using BITEBUFF as a code during checkout.

Or, you can win two admission passes this week! Just leave me a comment below, telling me which room in your house or outdoor space, that needs some upgrading. For us, it's the sun room right now. Some structural work that needs to be done may lead to a redesign, so I'm looking for some inspiration at the show.

Also, where do you like to shop for home goods? I'm addicted to Marshall's and TJMaxx. I think it's the thrill of the "hunt" that excites me. Most of our home is decorated with their wares.

I will select a winner, using random.org, on Friday, January 31st. Good luck!

Disclosure: The Great Big Home & Garden Show offered me two media passes and two admission passes for a giveaway in exchange for this post. All opinions are 100% my own.

I think it is time to upgrade the kitchen. We have been putting it off because it would be a major project/

It's time to do some work to the master bedroom. Maybe some paint, new carpet, and french doors to replace the sliders to our private bedroom deck.

Definitely our kitchen - but I dont want to spend any money on it until I know we are staying!

Destiny said...

Our bedroom has a few more projects left before it's completed. I'd love to add some crown molding and new molding around the windows. My favorite place to shop for new home items is thrift stores!

We just bought a house! The whole thing needs touches of us, but the back patio is boring! I would love some ideas on how to spruce up the concrete pad that has a room and light over it.

We're in the middle of upgrading our kitchen and main bathroom right now. Next up is the patio area!

I also love the thrill of the hunt at TJ Maxx and Marshall's (as well as Home Goods itself), Tuesday Morning is also a great treasure hunt place for home items.

We moved to the CLE area over the summer, and bought a house that needs a lot of updating. Picture tons of wallpaper and a 1990's kitchen. Since I spend a lot of time in that kitchen (two little kids) I think we need to tackle it first.

Plan on redoing the kitchen this year. I really need some new, fresh ideas :-)

We just got our first house and the basement is bare. It is most definitely in need of the personal touch. I am hoping that we can get some great ideas on how to finish it at the show.

I'm a renter, so it's completely out of my control, but I'd love to remodel the kitchen. It's neither functional nor pretty.

My bathroom on the 2nd floor needs a major overhaul so that is my next project
