Condo Blues: Del Mar Ceiling Fan Giveaway!

Del Mar Ceiling Fan Giveaway!

I'm still feeling under the weather.

Do you know would make me feel better?

Hosting an awesome giveaway! 

Remember when my snarky little self ranted on about how much I loathe ceiling fans with lights and the nice people at Del Mar Designs changed my mind?

I personally haven't bought or installed one since then (small house, etc.) but I don't think ceiling fans with lights are the big black ink stain ruining the white couch of design anymore.

Let's face it, ceiling fans are a very effective and energy efficient way to cool a home in summer and to reduce your heating costs in winter by reversing the fan blades. You know how much I like energy efficiency!

Del Mar Designs asked me if they could sponsor a ceiling fan giveaway on Condo Blues. I can't think of a better way to say thank you to Del Mar Designs for changing my design mind and for a chance to thank all of you for reading this little ol' blog of mine.

How would you like the chance to win either one of these fabulous ceiling fans from Del Mar Designs?


I will use a random number generator to select the winner. The winner may choose from the

Minka Aire F814-BNA 1950's Brushed Nickel 56" Ceiling Fan with Up & Down Light & Wall Control

or the


Emerson CF720PW Banff Pewter Uplight 52" Ceiling Fan with Light & Wall Control




I'm going to run this giveaway differently and use a Rafflecopter widget thingy. Instead of leaving a comment at the bottom of this post to enter as I have asked you to do in the past, this time you need to click the Rafflecopter option (or options if you want to do any of the extra entries after the mandatory entry) and complete form.

Update 2/7/2012 9:22AM: Apparently the Rafflecopter widget won't allow you to type the name of the ceiling fan you want to win into like it's supposed to. I can't remove the widget because it wouldn't be fair to the people who've entered the contest so far. However, if you click that option on the Rafflecopter widget it shows up on my spreadsheet of entries. I'm sorry if it's confusing. Using Rafflecopter was supposed to make entering the giveaway easier for you and keeping track of all the details easier for me :(

Mandatory Entry: Click Leave a Blog Post Comment.
Enter the name of the Del Mar Designs ceiling fan (Minka Aire or Emerson is fine if you don't want to type the whole thing) you would like to win.

1. Like Del Mar Designs on Facebook.

Congratulations to the winner:coreyolomon!


The Del Mar Designs Ceiling Fan Giveaway will run from Monday, February 6, 2012 to Sunday, February 19, 2012 12:00 AM EST. This giveaway is open to US residents only.

Disclosure: I did not receive payment or goodies to run this giveaway. I am doing it to reward you guys for being the most awesometastic readers in Blogland! And I kinda feel like I owe the ceiling fan industry an apology because I was a jerk about their industry. Watching too much Trading Spaces will do that to you. All opinions are my own and longtime readers know I am very opinionated.
