Ace Hardware $50 Gift Card Give Away and the Merry Paint Makeover Contest!

There are a lot of things I love about my husband….he is a great dad, he’s smart and funny and a hard worker, and he is awesome at picking up after himself so that I don’t have to.  But what I REALLY love about my dear husband is that he is awesome about fixing things around the house.  I don’t even have to make him a ‘honey do’ list because he makes one for himself!  This weekend he re-caulked the bathroom tub and next weekend he is building more shelves in the closet.  Needless to say, he spends a lot of time at the hardware store picking up things he needs for his list of projects.  Our favorite hardware store is Ace Hardware because it is smaller than those HUGE warehouse stores but still has everything we need, including a very helpful staff!  Well, Ace Hardware wants to help you cross painting off your honey do list before the holidays get here with their Merry Paint Makeover Contest!
