Minwax(R) Teams with This Old House Magazine for Furniture Makeover Contest: ‘From Attic to Awesome’
Have Furniture in Need of Revival? Enter Now for a Chance to Win a Professional Furniture Makeover and a Backstage Visit to the Set of the This Old House(R) Television Show
Minwax, the leading manufacturer of wood finishing and wood care products, has teamed with the popular This Old House magazine to announce the “From Attic to Awesome” Makeover Contest. To enter, contestants need only to submit a photo and a bit of background information on a furniture piece in need of a transformation – perhaps a well-worn dining table, handed down from one generation to another, or a sturdy old chest that has been collecting dust in the attic? Maybe a new “find” from a yard sale or flea market, or even a “craigslist” treasure that needs some updating but would look terrific in the house? One Grand Prize winner will win a professional furniture makeover plus a trip for two to a behind-the-scenes day with the cast and crew of the “This Old House(R)” TV show. Two 1st Prize Winners will each win a professional makeover for their furniture piece, and twenty-five 2nd Prize Winners will each win a $100 gift card. The contest runs from July 1, 2009 to September 30, 2009.
“We are thrilled to be collaborating with the creative folks at This Old House on this contest,” said Jacquelyn Ferrara, director of marketing, Minwax(R). “Over the years, we’ve transformed countless pieces of forgotten furniture into stunning showcases using our full line of wood finishing products; now that we’re teaming with the professionals at This Old House, we can’t wait to see the results.”
