We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday! We had a great long weekend spending time with friends and family, eating lots of turkey, being thankful, playing cards and facing the crowds on Black Friday until 4am. (Yes, we’re crazy.) All in all, it was a great Thanksgiving. Today, we’re back in the swing of things and kicking off the week with a giveaway!

I always think of the time between Thanksgiving and December 1st as “Operation Christmas Prep”: a time to get the house organized, finish up those lingering projects and get the house ready for overnight guests and Christmas parties. If you’re hoping to spruce up your kitchen before the holiday rolls around, today’s giveaway will help you do just that. Meet the Encore Countertop Refinishing Kit!

Frank Fontana Countertop

You might know Frank Fontana from HGTV’s Design on a Dime. Frank uses the Encore system to give tired countertops a facelift in a lot less time, mess and money than demoing old countertops and replacing them with new ones. Encore is a complete DIY countertop refinishing system that transforms lackluster countertops into sophisticated cement-based finishes in just three easy steps and three days. The all-inclusive kit includes everything you need and results in a stain-, scratch- and wear-resistant countertop surface. Check out more info, videos and color options here.To see it in action by a fellow blogger friend, check out this post from Katie Bower where she refinished her mom’s basement kitchen countertops.
