Apply for a Lowe's Spring Makeover!

It is almost that time of year.
When the birds are singing 
the flowers are waking up after a winter nap
and lazy days in the hammock start happening.

Are you counting down the days until spring?
I most definitely am.
And I am excited to finally be sharing that something I have been talking about
for weeks now that I couldn't share yet...

You might have noticed that I love outdoor living
Whether dining al fresco or enjoying an evening around the fire pit with friends
outdoor living plays a huge part in our lifestyle
and as soon as the weather starts warming up
we start getting the yard ready.

And this spring-
Lowe's and I want to help one of you get your home ready for spring as well.
Do you have an area in your home or yard that needs a little facelift?

A room? 
Or maybe an outdoor area?
Maybe a new area to dine in your backyard.

 Or to lounge and relax...

Or a porch that could use a refresh
with a small spot with a table for two maybe.

Maybe a gorgeous pergola

or area filled with fresh plants that will bloom and grow

Well- we are here to help.

We want to take your spring makeover dream space
 list and tackle it.
I will fly anywhere in the US to come to YOUR home and help makeover your space!
We aren't able to do a huge makeover-  it has be to be completed in just 1 day
with just a couple of us working on it.

So think of it as more of a refresh for your space rather than a renovation.
But a refresh is perfect don't you think?

Let's kick off spring with a burst of color and warm sunshine
and a brand new place in your home for you to enjoy.

  1. I applied! How fun would that be to have a little French Country Cottage in my backyard? ;)

  2. I applied! Oh how delightful would this all be:) fingers crossed, and I'll be baking my best cake just for you!

  3. Thanks for the opportunity Courtney! You have got me day dreaming! I just entered and think we have the perfect space in need of your touch. :) I'm always so inspired by your back porch... now here's to hoping you can give our back porch that certain something it is in need of... Hope your week is going well! ~julie

  4. Thank you for the opportunity. I just applied. Fingers crossed.

  5. What an amazing opportunity, will indeed be submitting an application...can't wait until daylight (already dark here in Alabama) to take some additional photos of my "Happy Place"....which could use a little additional inspiration and refreshing.

  6. I entered! Dreaming of you helping me to our patio!! it's old and in need! It would be fun!

  7. How nice of you and Lowes! I can't wait until daylight (already dark here in Alabama) to take some additional pictures of my "Happy Place" screen porch and patio. I'll most certainly be completing the application and hoping that I'm the lucky one to get selected - as these areas need some additional inspiration and refreshing!

  8. I'm not applying as I'm not really fond of cameras but I will be interested in seeing the makeover of someones home, especially of a yard area.

  9. Hi Courtney, I applied today and my husband is so excited! I will let him down easy if we don't get selected ;) I am just happy for you that you are involved with Lowe's to do something like this! Can't wait to see your before and after pictures! I know your work will be beautiful wherever you go!

  10. Thank you for sharing this opportunity with us. I applied and am looking forward to seeing (and perhaps experiencing) the makeovers!

  11. This is a special opportunity. I would love it for myself but would love it more for my son and his wife. I'm telling them about this right away.

  12. LOVE this! We have applied. I had such a fun time filling out the application - it was a great exercise in thinking about what to do with our needy space! As a major Francophile and fan of your style, this was a breath of fresh air for my late winter funk. Our house has actually been picked for a casual statewide blogger home tour (trust me, it is NOT ready!!) in June and we have to submit photos by May, so this would be a neat way to give the main entrance to our house a facelift before we welcome (virtual) company! Thanks for this fun opportunity!

  13. Courtney, thank you so much for this fun opportunity to dream a little dream for our home. I love the way you decorate...inside and outside. So beautiful,and inviting! Your casual way you place flowers that are so......gorgeous and romantic! It was snowing here last night when I applied so the pictures aren't the best, and of course it was dark....but I wanted to get in before the deadline. I'm excited to see what you make over....where ever it is!

  14. I am hopeful that sometime in the future you will offer this opportunity for some of us who live in a very nice well kept apartment. :)

  15. Wow that's amazing!! Such a cool thing :) Congrats to all the lucky applicants!

  16. I don't know who won your "refurbish" day, but I'm so happy for them and excited to see the results! You do such a great job! I'm still trying to figure out what I want it so with my outdoor space. I have made progress, but it is never as much as I'd hoped it would be. This sprin and summer I will get some more done. I can't wait to see what you and Lowe's come up with!! Hugs,
