help me and wife try to win contest?
« on: September 20, 2017, 09:02:17 PM »
Not sure if this is an appropriate place for something like this, so admins, please feel free to remove.

My wife entered our kitchen (which I remodeled myself :-)) into a contest with the manufacturer of our very GREEN (and very cool) range. We have a shot at winning the contest, and the reward is any appliance of your choosing, which would be awesome since our refrigerator is on its last legs. So if any fellow Mustachians out there want to help out another Mustachian, here's the link for our entry:

https://bigchill.com/design-contest/?contest=photo-detail&photo_id=15492

All you need to do is go to that link and click the "Vote for this photo!" button. Or if you're not digging our kitchen, check out the others and vote for one you like.

Thanks!
Eric

I usually avoid these Vote For Me internet contests, but I did go to the site and enjoyed every photo In it, so I voted for your green stove image which was as interesting as the rest of them.

Good job on the remodel!
Voted for you!
Hope you'll win it!

Another vote for you.  I liked the white kitchen with the turquoise fridge too.

Voted, twice.

Forgot I had voted  for you from work, also voted at home. SInce they are different IP addresses, the vote should be good.

Best of luck...

Not sure what I voted for but I think I voted for you. Is that all the same kitchen? In any case, beautiful.

I voted for you, and I'd love to sure more pictures of your kitchen. For example, are the tiles above the back splash random or part of a larger pattern?

Haha, no, those are all different kitchens...and yes, some of them are really beatuful. Thanks for looking!

Thanks for the vote Dicey!

As requested, a few more pics...

A pic of our son and dog enjoying the kitchen just after I finished it:


...another right around the same time:


...and then a few years later, my original bargain-priced range broke and parts were unavailable, forcing me to cut the soapstone counters in place to make room for the new Big Chill range:


...and done (again). Notice that my son is big enough to steal food right off the counter now. :)



Voted, twice.

Hey, if voting twice is good enough for the presidential elections, it should be good enough for this contest, right? :) Thanks for the votes!

Side note, I always participate in these types of things. If literally two seconds of my time can be of service to someone, why the heck not?

Love the red hat and the frugal pony!

Thanks for posting additional pictures. I now see what looked like random tiles above the back splash are actually 2-gang outlet covers, not tiles.

Good luck on the contest!

Thanks! Sorry about the photos. I tried to get fancy and embed the links to my hosted photos but it doesn't seem to be working for everyone.

Thanks! And the knives are crooked too. It's a disgrace, frankly. Sad.
