Ace Hardware has launched of its "Merry Paint Makeover" design contest. Through Nov. 26, homeowners are encouraged to visit Ace's Facebook page (www.facebook.com/acehardware) to submit a photo and 100-word description of a room in their home that needs a little more "merry" this holiday season for a chance to win a complete room makeover by one of Ace's design experts.
The holiday design contest is the official introduction of Ace's first-ever panel of design experts to consumers. The panel, comprised of three interior designers from different regions across the United States, was established to provide color and design inspiration for Ace shoppers.
"We all have at least one room in our house that could use a little more love," said Mary Rice, president and general manager of Ace Paint. "Our panel of seasoned design experts will help the winning Ace Facebook fan turn their ho-hum space into a festive place for the holidays, while also providing tips and advice for all homeowners who want to create an inviting space for family and friends this holiday season."
Based on the submissions, Ace, with the help of its design experts, will select a grand-prize winner and three runners-up. Winners will be announced in early December.
The grand-prize winner will receive a complete room makeover valued at more than $10,000, which will include a consultation and on-site management by one of Ace's design experts and volunteers from the winner's local Ace Hardware store.
Three runners-up also will be selected to receive a custom "e-design" package, which will include a custom makeover plan by one of Ace's design experts, as well as a $500 Ace gift card to purchase all the paint and sundries they'll need to complete the makeover design. Additionally, everyone that enters the contest will receive a bounce back offer to use at their local Ace Hardware.
