Make your bedroom a sanctuary

The winner is: WCC!

#27
You were chosen as the winner by random.org.

Please reply to my email within 48 hours!
Thanks to everyone who entered!



I recently was cat-sitting for a friend and stayed in their apartment for a few days. The best part (other than some kitty love) was their bedroom. I didn't realize how soothing a bedroom could be! They had a wonderful mattress, beautiful queen sleigh bed, and matching dark wood armoire and dresser. They even had a miniature waterfall with a buddha in it! I haven't slept so well in years. My bedroom is filled with papers, books, old second-hand furniture and whatever else I can't find room for. I've been inspired to do some cleaning and upgrades.

I decided that it was time to start looking for some new bedroom furniture sets. I got some great ideas for what I want to do from the site http://www.bedroomfurniture.com/. They are part of the 200+ stores of CSN, and I'm lucky enough to be able to sponsor a GIVEAWAY for a $40 gift certificate so you can start working on upgrades to your own bedroom sanctuary!

You might want to use the cash towards a new rug, like this beautiful one by Calvin Klein:
http://www.bedroomfurniture.com/SW11-GLD-CKR1413.html



















Or maybe you want to splurge on a new armoire like the one at my friends' apartment:
http://www.bedroomfurniture.com/Prepac-BDC-3359-2-PRP1100.html



The cool thing about bedroomfurniture.com is that they have all the basics like beds, futons, headboards, and dressers, but also accessories like cute bed benches and lamps.

If you want to enter to win this wonderful $40 gift certificate to buy bedroom furniture or anything else from the many CSN stores, all you have to do is post a comment that answers this question:

What item at bedroomfurniture.com would help you make your bedroom into a sanctuary?

I'll keep this contest open until 9am EST on Saturday, August 7th.
The contest is open to residents of the US and Canada, but please know that you might have to pay shipping if you win and live in Canada. Please one entry per person or household. Thanks!

  31. I already have great bedroom furniture and the room is wall-to-wall carpeting, but the one thing that would help make the bedroom a sanctuary would be a bookcase to store reading material. (Reading before going to sleep helps me to relax at the end of the day.) The Riley Holliday River Bend Double Bookcase in Burnished/Lightly Distressed (SKU #: RIH1041) would be ideal!
