Giveaway & Review: $55 Gift Certificate!{CLOSED}

I know I don't write a lot about it- but my husband and I love to work on our house! We are approaching the three year mark and are slowly getting to the end of our renovations & decorating. But of course there are a few areas in our home that we are just a little bit stumped on. You know, there's that one wall you just can't seem to find the right artwork for.... Or you just can't quite find the perfect rug to match your mauve painted living room... (someone please tell me I'm not alone!)

So anyway, one of those rooms was my entry way/mud room. I have been looking for a bench and was having a hard time finding the right size, style, color - you name it! But that all changed when I visited my friends over at I know in past reviews I've told you they have everything- but I mean really, they have everything!

The perfect bench for my entryway was only a couple clicks away! I just typed in what I was looking for "entryway bench" selected the price (under $60) and there it was! I even got free shipping! Now of course with an entryway bench there's a few things I was worried about --- sturdiness, scratch resistance (we have two cats and it's obviously in a high traffic area) and the scale of the bench (what if it doesn't fit?!). Thankfully listed the dimensions of the bench and it's surprisingly very sturdy and well made! The bench I chose is actually supposed to be a part of a dining set and the quality shows! It's real furniture, not a cheap showpiece. My husband and I can sit side by side on it and there is no wiggling or give whatsoever. And best of all? It was super easy to put together! DH and I had it together in less than 20 minutes! Now all I have to do is figure out some art to go on the wall above the bench.... hmm... guess I know where I should start checking!

I am so impressed with CSNStores - I actually did some Christmas shopping on their site as well and was really happy with their service (they upgraded me to 2 day shipping at no extra charge!) and I'm always happy with the quality of their products. They even have a loyalty program where you get rewards points for every dollar you spend with them - pretty sweet!

Verdict: is a great place to shop online for furniture, home decor, housewares and more! And their shipping is fast (and often free with purchase!)

My daughter desperately needs a desk so I would use this gift certificate towards that. I have a few I like on their website.
