I remember the exact date we moved into our first home here in Michigan. I was 28 years old and it was one of the most exciting days of my life-our lives. After we closed on the house and were handed the keys (yippee!), we drove to the house and Rick had to go back to work for a couple hours 😯 . I was left alone with a big bucket of cleaning supplies, and even bigger dreams of what the run-down starter home could eventually become. I wasn’t scared, or even intimidated. I felt empowered, optimistic, and I was ready to get busy. Little did I know, it all would lead us here to redheadcandecorate.com a place I try to inspire others to do as we did-fix up our home on our own. With that being said, I’m honored to partner with Lowe’s in bringing you The UpSkill Project, designed for homeowners (renters included) just like you and I who wish to improve their home on their own. What’s really exciting is that I’m crossing the threshold together with Lowe’s, and we are going into the home of local Detroit residents while Lowe’s works side-by-side with them, teaching DIY skills to complete their home project. I get to document one of the projects all here on this blog 😯 . Doesn’t that sound exciting for all of us? Here’s how it works…
The UpSkill Project contest for the Detroit Metro area begins May 7th, 2018 and runs through May 21, 2018. To enter, contestants need to submit a short video describing a certain project they are interested in completing in their home, the skills they would need to learn to help complete that project, and what that would mean to them as a homeowner (HOW TO ENTER LOWES UPSKILL PROJECT CONTEST).
Please keep in mind the contest is traveling across the United States (more locations coming soon including in WI,PA,IL,IA,OH,KY,MO) and certain zip codes run at certain times, so please check to see if your zip code is included. Also keep in mind that if your zip code doesn’t happen to make the list, that doesn’t mean you can’t participate in an Upskill Community Workshop (see more information below). In addition, if you’ve visited Lowe’s before like me 😀 then you already know how helpful their team members are and you should know that they are always more than happy to help guide you through all of your home DIY projects.
Lowe’s goal in the The UpSkill Project is to EMPOWER folks to get out there and learn how to transform their home by learning new skills and doing it themselves. You can’t get better than that in my personal opinion.
Lowes will choose up to 5 winners in the Detroit area, and not only will the winners each receive a $2000.00 Lowes gift card to go towards the project in their home, but I am also excited to tell you that Rick (my husband) and I will be joining The UpSkill Project teachers at one of the winner’s homes to document Lowe’s experts working side-by-side with them and their family to get the job done. This is so cool, and I can’t wait for those 2 days! Please follow this link to enter and to get further details: ENTER LOWES UPSKILL PROJECT CONTEST.
But wait, there’s more! The UpSkill Project will be holding a free community workshop on August 25, 2018. That’s when Rick & I will make another appearance at a local Lowe’s where we will learn more home improvement skills such as tiling, painting, plumbing, and general power tool usage together with you. How does that sound?
I think it sounds like a lot of fun! This is truly a very exciting campaign for Rick and I to be able to not only work side-by-side with one of the worlds leading home improvement retailers, but to be able to help one winner bring their home project to fruition, and learn the skills to go along with it. Truly amazing. Thanks, Lowes!
NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Homeowners and renters (with property owner’s permission) in eligible ZIPs only. Rules/Entry details found HERE. Ends 5/21/18.
