Chance to Spark Up Your Chicago Area Fireplace

North Star Stone Ugly Fireplace ContestHow ugly is your fireplace? Want to have it remodeled for free?
Libertyville-based North Star Stone, Inc. has launched the Chicago’s Ugly Fireplace Contest, in which one lucky Chicago-area homeowner will get a complete fireplace remodel.
The fireplace in my Chicago real estate is awful. So awful, in fact, that I considered keeping the details of this contest to myself and just entering my ugly fireplace. But, I care about you readers too much.
All you have to do to enter is upload up to two pictures of your ugly or dated fireplace through Facebook or through the North Star Stone site between now and August 31.
From September 1 through 8, the public will be invited online to vote for their favorite. Judging by an expert panel will take place from September 9 through 13 and the winner will be announced on September 14.
The grand prize is a $4,000 fireplace remodel. To be eligible, your home must lie within 50 miles of Libertyville, the fireplace area can not exceed 60 square feet and the mantle must be no more than six feet.
In addition to the grand prize, there will be monthly random drawings from the entries in which winners will receive a $500 gift certificate good toward any stone fireplace transformation by North Star Stone, Inc.
