Homes into Havens Contest

Win a certificate for one free 3.64 litre of Beauti-Tone Paint, a one-year subscription to At Home on the North Shore and East Coast Living magazines, along with a Saltscapes ball cap and ah! boat tote!

Spring Cleaning took on a whole new meaning in 2020. When the global pandemic kept us indoors many of us picked up a paint brush and updated the do to list to find a sense of purpose when not much in the world seemed to be making sense. As more and more of us will spend more time at home than ever before, transforming our homes into our havens has become the new mantra for the “Do-it-Yourselfers” of the world. At Home on the North Shore wants to celebrate the ways that you kept busy and spruced up your special spaces.

One lucky winner will claim a prize from each category – and all you have to do is share a home project photo and short story with us!

Contest entries must be received by August 7, 2020.

Homes into Havens Contest Categories

You have the time to create a new or refreshed space in your home, thanks to COVID-19. Share your before and after photos, so we can see the contrast in the space you’ve renovated, changed, or enhanced!

Clutter, disorder, chaos, and confusion come to mind when thinking about the “before” of this project! Share photos of that organization project you’ve “been meaning to get done” for ages and finally took the time to do (or were forced to take the time to do as it stared you in the face while you spent more time at home).

Backyards and decks have become space where we can safely spend time outdoors, especially when parks and trails were closed. As you spent time in your backyard, did you realize it needed to be spruced up?

Do you have a family heirloom piece of furniture that needed fabric replaced or maybe a beautiful wooden dressing table that looked outdated and needed painting? Celebrate your hard work transforming old to new-to-you!

Home offices saw a lot more use this spring, as we flattened the curve while working, playing, and staying at home. Did you take an old spare bedroom and transform it into a ergonomic escape? Or did you take your old and dusty rarely used home office and make it a bright and beautiful workspace?
