Toolsday Giveaway: Win a Digital Showerhead

To enter last week’s Toolsday’s giveaway, you had to identify an old rusty tool on a stick. Thanks to our cryptic hint, we had a lot of correct answers – the mystery tool was an antique stomper used for washing clothes. That’s how you got tough stains out back in the olden days.  We randomly picked one winner out of all the comments and that lucky person is Josh from Findlay, Ohio.

Next Tuesday, we will be giving away a Levaqua deluxe showerhead.  The winner will have a choice of a handheld or fixed model.  Both high-tech models come with digitally controlled setting for a true spa-like experience. Levaqua showerheads are equipped with a full-body surround spray, flow regulator for water savings, and a 5-year warranty.

To win the showerhead, post a comment (click “comment” above) and tell us what this gadget (on the right) is designed to do. You don’t have to answer correctly to win; we will randomly pick one winner from this post.

Last week we asked you to help us design the kitchen in DIY Network’s Blog Cabin giveaway.  This week we’re asking you to decide on the master suite. Please vote on our design choices then check on the progress of the renovation. In case you don’t know, we’re completely renovating a historic home on the coast of Maine.  The circa 1884 home sits on 51 acres with its own private beach. When the renovation is complete, you’ll have an opportunity to win the home.     

On Tuesday, February 7, we will select the winner of the showerhead then start up a new giveaway, which will be given away the Tuesday after that.

You have until February 7, 2012, 2:00pm (ET) to enter to win a Levaqua showerhead.  
Official Rules.
