Please Help Me!

I have never done this before. Promote myself in a contest or give away. And I am kind of feeling a little ambivalent about it now too. But here goes.

The lovely Brooke Giannetti at Velvet and Linen blog has been offering a give away the last couple of weeks: a gorgeous Brickmaker's coffee table from Bobo Intriguing Objects.

Brooke had been discussing how things from retail catalogs such as Restoration Hardware or Wisteria can be made to look personal in one's own home just by how each person puts it together in their own style. She received a comment from Mark Sage, owner of Bobo Intriguing objects who offered three tables for a give away. His generosity is so amazing!

Well, I have been trying to furnish my office space, and on a budget, sometimes things can be a bit tough. I think this table would be so perfect!

So, I am hoping you all might help me out and send a vote my way. (pretty please?)

If you hop on over to the Velvet and Linen blog HERE, you will find the voting link on the upper right hand side of Brooke's beautiful blog and be able to read all about the contest and see all of the finalist photos. There are ten finalists, and three tables. I am hoping to be one of the three winners. (please!) Voting began today and runs through Nov. 29th.

I am not proud. ...PLEASE help me win one of the three tables? Thank you, thank you!

Dayum Katie! I had no clue that was yours...It is gorgeous! It was a toss up for me between yours and the log home. I already voted before I knew.

Best to you!

katie, as one of the judges involved in selecting the finalists, i am supposed to be impartial, so let me just say this: the room speaks for itself. no need to beg, as
i'm sure the voting readers will see that as well, and send a table winging your way...

Katie, I love this room and cast my vote for you. I also broadcast my choice with my reasoning at Garvinweasel with a link bank to the voting page.

Best of luck!

Congratulations on being one of the finalists. I also entered a room and didn't even make it onto a blog post. It makes me feel better to know that some rooms entered were done by professionals. I really liked your room and would have given you my vote had I known it was yours. Best of luck!

Michelle said...

it would be perfect in your perfect room Katie! Lovely...

Julio said...

This is a fabulous room Katie and the table would look terrific in this setting. You have my vote. Best of luck to you!

I loved your space when i saw it earlier on the V and L post, and agree that the table would work beautifully in your space! Off to place my vote, good luck;)

Best,
Jaime

Katie:
Guess what? I already voted for this one - without knowing it belonged to one of my favorite bloggers! That chair! Those bookcases! My fingers are crossed!

I already voted for you and now how fun to find out the room is by one of my daily reads! Your room is fabulous!!!

Cote de Texas said...

As a judge, I am risking my integrity here - I hope I don't get disbarred!!!

But I think you are going to win. That table just belongs in your room! It was made for your room!!

ssshhh - don't tell anyone I told you that!!!!

Hi, Katie! One of the earlier commenters was right - your room already won my vote even before I read this post :) If you get one of the tables, I'd just LOVE to see it worked up with your youthful, chic style. I can picture it in Brooke's style or Joni's style so easily, but I really want to see that BoBo table shaken up a bit! :)

Best wishes!!!

Marie said...

I voted for you, now I will keep my fingers and toes crossed that you win it. :)

Jennifer said...

I thought that was your room! Is that weird? It just sounded like the basement office you described the other day. Headed over to vote now ... best of luck!

Greet said...

You were on my Top 5! (was judge for this contest).
To me the style of your room is completely the style where this Brickmaker's table has to fit in!
Very Belgian!!! Congrats!!!

So wish you good luck now!

Erin @ SYL: Slipcover Your Life said...

Absolutely! Just voted for you now (hope you win that divine coffee table!)

Michele from Boston said...

I voted for your room before I knew it was yours so good luck! A question for you - are those bookcases from IKEA? Could you let me know either way. I love what you did with them and could see them as a way to tame my bibliophilia. I hope you win one of the tables. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

House of Blue said...

voted for you! good luck :-)

I meant to enter but missed the deadline. I will go vote. I shared some photos of your mercury glass from last year. your arrangement has inspired me to better arrange mine this year. i hope that is okay? If not, let me know and I will remove the photos:)

I want to thank you all so much for your kind support and votes. It means so much to me just to know you thought of my space. I think it would work so well in the space and a better fit than my little pine table (it really is too small). Thank you so much for coming over and leaving a comment. It really means the world to me and makes me smile every day!!

I WOULD have voted for you if I had had more than one vote--and I posted this on Brooke's site. I had to vote for the log house because it is mine. Your room is perfect for the brickmaker's table. I can just see it there.


I came to your blog from Brooke's site and I'm now a reader here too!
