Its Friday Freebies time!  This week we move indoors and the crew at Partylite came to us with another awesome set.  Check out their Coast Lights collection featuring the PartyLite Coastal Lights Hurricane.  This new twist on the nautical look will add a sophisticated flair to any home. Craftsmanship and style take center stage and define this one-of-a-kind, hand-blown glass hurricane.  Inside the Hurrican is Partylite’s Round Mottled Layered Pillar in Seaside Mist.  But that’s not all! Partylite has been just as excited as our blog readers over Friday Freebies they’re also providing one lucky winner with the Coast Lights Oyster Shell, Coastal Lights Nautilus Shell, and a dozen Calm Waters tealights to go with it all.


All you have to do is comment on this week’s question with a valid email address before Monday Night @ Midnight Eastern.  We’ll pick a random winner from all of our comments. Its that simple!

For this week, we want to know what’s the one thing in your house that you are the most proud of?  Got a killer couch or maybe you hand crafted your own pillows? Did you paint the kids rooms in one weekend? We want to know!

If you’re not already showing it off, go upload it to Rate My Space. Or if you’re still looking a really great piece of furniture check out Leslie’s post from yesterday with an early look at some of the new pieces coming from HGTV designer Angelo Surmelis.  If green is your thing, Kristine is always on the hunt for some inspiration.

Have a great weekend!

    I discovered an old trunk with a painted address on the back in a trash heap. I rescued it, cut a door into it and now have a beautiful free standing cabinet. It will ALWAYS be a talking point of my house.

    My bathroom window. We had a "problem" window for years. Our house was built in 1930 and to allow for ventilation they put a window in the bathroom right above the bathtub! Definately, a design and privacy issue. After years of problematic design solutions, from rusted mini blinds to soaking wet shades I came up with a solution! I decided to faux paint a stain glass window. It is beautiful and fits the design of the house perfectly. Everyone things its the original stain glass window!

    I am most proud of the cute metal chairs I found at Pier 1 for my breakfast nook. The chairs are fashionable, well constructed and comfortable. They give the room a great cafe look.

    My living room. It's the first room to really have come together since moving in with my fiance. It's a mix of new items we have bought together and hand me down items from our families. Old and new memories.

    I'm most proud of my antique bench in my entry way. It belonged to my grandmother and I remember it sitting in her entry way as a child whenever I see it.

    I'm finally happy with all of the key furniture pieces in my living room. We have a Bernhardt over-sized sofa with a pillow back, the matching chair and half with ottoman, a Lexington Bob Timberlake display coffee table in distressed cherry and a great sofa table from Hooker in distressed cherry that we just purchased last fall. It is overscale and has a planked-look top and distressed finish. Now, I just need to find some really great accessory pieces that I love as much, to really complete the room.

    My kitchen which is still a work in progress, but it is comming together. I have painted the cabinets white, tiles the countertops and painted the wall a light chocolate brown. It looks awesome.

    I'm most proud of my tub area. We replaced the window and tiled the whole thing in slate ourselves. Much nicer than the 1950 bathroom I started with!

    I am most proud of our bravery. Two things come to mind, the bright lime paint on our daughters bedroom walls AND ceiling, and the wood laminate flooring we installed ourselves with very little waste. We took a deep breath and installed it diagonally after my daughter and I saw a diagonally set floor on HGTV and thought it looked awesome! I truly believe that, for me, being a quilter takes a bit of the fear out of some of these projects and aides with the wise use of materials. I get everything I can out of every little scrap.

    I love the way my half bath is turning out. My daughter and I painted it two different colors, top and bottom. I applied a faux finish on the bottom half and installed a chair rail. I made the window covering and incorporated beaded trim. It's very cool looking. I'm planning on painting the vanity cabinet and I'd like to install new flooring in the future.
