$60 Gift Card Giveaway – updated with winner! – Frugal Novice

$60 Gift Card Giveaway – updated with winner!

Brian and I have had a lot of fun working on updating our house since we bought it a few years ago. We’ve replaced counters, appliances,  and a lot of the lighting. Our galley kitchen, for example, had a CEILING FAN. We quickly replaced that with some great track lighting. We also replaced the really outdated ceiling fixture above the sink with this cute pendant:

I love brushed nickel fixtures – I think they lend a clean, contemporary feel to a space – and the light that escapes out of the perforations creates a nice effect.

CSN Stores have a TON of different lighting options to choose from. In looking on their site, I quickly found other fixtures I would love to have in our house:

They’re not just about lighting, though – they have over 200 stores to shop at. Any member of my family would have fun shopping on this site – there are toys for the boys (and, let’s be honest, Brian too), grills, mountain bikes, kitchen items, furniture and much more.

That brings me to the really exciting part of this post – CSN Stores is letting me host a giveaway for a $60 gift card to any of their stores!

Win It

This $60 gift card could be yours! This giveaway is open to all US and Canadian readers. Entries will be accepted until midnight CST Monday, May 24. Note: there may be shipping charges or in the case of Canadian readers, international fees, for certain products. If you’re the lucky winner, keep that in mind when picking what to use your gift card for!

How To Enter

Mandatory entry: Follow me publicly on Google Friend Connect, then head over to CSN Lighting and comment telling me the name of one of the lights you like.

Bonus Entries

(Only valid after the required entry has been completed)

Please leave a comment for each extra entry – if you blog about this giveaway and get 4 entries, for example, comment 4 times.

Note: This was not a paid post, and honest opinions were provided. CSN Stores provided the gift card for giveaway, but I was not compensated in any way.

    We just built a new house last year and haven’t found any trim for the recessed lighting we have in our living room. They have some neat ones in brushed nickel that I think would look great!

    Hi!!! Coming to you from MBC!!!

    I am subscribed publicly on Google Friend Connect (blogfully)

    The lighting I really found to be perfect for my home (dining room) is the Thomoas Lighting- SL869-18- One light flush mount in textured white…
    here’s the link: http://www.csnlighting.com/Thomas-Lighting-SL8691-18-TL2707.html?IsReturn=1

    Thanks so much!!! Would love to win. We have a light fixture in our dining room and we’re for ever banging our head up against it. It drags too low (it’s one of those hanging ones) and it irritates the fire out of us. I’d love to find a better fixture for that part of the house.

    Thanks so much!!!!

    We are nearly finished remodeling the girls’ room. We have a tinkerbell ceiling fan and light already, but it makes noise and isn’t bright enough. If I won the gift certificate, I would use it toward: Vaxcel – FN44322W – 44″ Alice Ceiling Fan. So cute with the pink with while polka dot fan blades. And I really like that it has a globe light – I find those do a better job of lighting up a room than individual bulbs do. Following you!
