Since the beginning, this give away has been filled with surprises. I never imagined that I would receive so many beautiful entries or that more than 3,800 of you would vote for your favorite rooms! It seems like each phase of this give away has its own surprise and the ending is no exception.
At 8 o'clock this morning I looked at the votes....
I sent out an e-mail to the three winners to let them know the wonderful news:
Then came the surprise. Unfortunately, Brandy sent me an e-mail saying that she regretfully couldn't accept the table. She stated that she wanted to thank all of the people who voted for her room and was looking forward to seeing the table in each of the three winners' rooms.
I quickly sent out an e-mail to Kari B, who is now the final winner of the Brickmaker's table!
This week I will be coordinating the delivery of the tables with Mark Sage. I'm thrilled with the final three rooms that you voted for. I think they represent three unique design styles and will prove Mark's point:
"If six different people had the EXACT same coffee table, it would look COMPLETELY different in six different settings. It still comes down to how you place it, the other pieces surrounding it, the shape and color of the room and how you accessorize that table. Putting your personal touches to a reproduction piece can be very rewarding."
I can't wait to see how Gary P, Susan D, and Kari B make the Brickmaker's table their own. I look forward to posting the images of their rooms with the Brickmaker's table in place in the next few weeks (I'll let you know the exact date soon).
I want to thank the other 6 finalists: Theresa A, Carolina C, Katie D, Mary Elizabeth H, Suzanne K, and Melissa L. Their rooms were all beautiful and unique. I truly appreciate their participation in this give away!
Thank you to my blogging friends who helped vote for the 10 finalists.
