$100 Kohl’s Home Giveaway

by | Jan 22, 2016 | All Things Home, Antiques, Decorating, My House, Shopping Tips | 1,476 comments

You know me.  I prefer to buy old things.  They just speak to me in a way that new things don’t, but it’s not always practical to buy old.  Sometimes you need a chair that people can sit in without wondering if and when it might give way.  Right?  Sometimes new things can work really well with all of the old, making your home a bit more functional.

When Kohl’s contacted me, asking if I would work with them on promoting their home department, I was honestly a little unsure.  I’ve bought towels and sheets and a frying pan there before, but I never thought of it as a place where I would buy a piece of furniture of a decorative accessory for my home.

I’ve always loved shopping at Kohl’s, though, so I decided to look around and see if I could find things that fit my style.  I also wanted to make sure I would be buying things I actually loved and would use.  I didn’t want to buy stuff just for the sake of buying stuff.

I ended up finding some really great treasures that I would never have thought could be purchased at Kohl’s.

Would you believe this sweet barrel-back French chair came from Kohl’s?  Well, it did.  I put it in the family room, replacing a vintage chair that was a bit too petite to be comfortable.  This is still an occasional chair, but it’s much more comfortable and sturdy.



When I received the first chair they sent, this is how it came out of the box…


“That’s unfortunate”, as Kriste put it.  Yes, it’s unfortunate for any piece of furniture to have a broken leg before life even begins.

I called Kohl’s, expecting I would have to go through the pain of boxing it back up, scheduling a package pick-up, etc.  To my surprise, they told me to keep the broken chair and they would send out a new one right away.  It was sort of a bonus that this happened, so I was able to write about their great customer service.  That’s how it’s done.

Jeff thinks he can repair the broken leg, but we might be moving back into the territory where the leg could give out at some point and you just hope you’re not the one sitting on it when it does.


I also bought a beautiful copper colander.  I have quite of a bit of copper hanging from the pot rack in my kitchen and I already had a mid-sized and small colander and this large one works with them perfectly.  (The two nesting inside are ones I already owned.)



It looks gorgeous hanging from my pot rack now.


I also picked up more SimpleVera towels for our bathrooms.  I had eight already, but our family of four goes through them pretty quickly in a week, so I added a few more for our bathroom and the guest bath.  It’s nice to have the same style of towel throughout the house.


They are fluffy, absorbent, and I love the simple striping at the ends.  We don’t have large linen cupboards, so I prefer to have pretty white towels that can be stored out in the open.


And I got a round bathmat with a pretty scalloped detail

…and a new wicker wastebasket….


There’s a game Jeff likes to play and it’s called “how much can I stuff in that tiny bathroom trashcan before the sides split open” and our last wastebasket, picked up at a yard sale years ago, was really suffering for it.  The sides were literally splitting.

This one is tightly woven and will stand up to a pair of worn jeans being stuffed inside, followed by mis-matched socks, a large coffee cup, a banana peal and a ratty pair of tennis shoes.  Just to be fair, I don’t think he’s ever stuffed a pair of shoes inside the bathroom trash, but I think the rest is true.

To his credit, it is in the wastebasket and I suppose that’s a small victory for a man.  (Kidding!  Only kidding.  I read this to Jeff and we had a good laugh together.)

Anyway, moving on.  I bought wooden hangers for my closet.  (I shared them a few weeks ago.)  It’s a small thing, but I love how tidy it makes my closet look.  I’m now a big fan of wood hangers.  It may be my favorite purchase of the bunch.


Would you believe I got all of that, even the chair, for $654.62 total?  Between sales and coupon codes, I did it!  (Kohl’s supplied me with a $500 gift card and I paid for the rest out of pocket.)

AND, because it’s Kohl’s, I received $110 in Kohl’s Cash and was able to buy a few more towels, hangers for Jeff’s side of the closet and some Chaps bedsheets (that are quite possibly the comfiest sheets I’ve ever slept in.)  The are generously sized, so the fitted sheet actually fits our deep mattress and there’s a nice allowance on both sides of the flat sheet.


If you saw something that caught your eye and would like to do a bit of shopping, I’m giving away a $100 gift card to Kohl’s that you can use online or in their stores.

To enter, simply leave a comment!

The giveaway will close Wednesday, January 27, 2016, at midnight PST.  A winner will be randomly chosen and announced shortly after.

Good luck!

And, to those on the east coast, stay snug in all of this snow!  We could get up to two feet in my neck of the woods.

Disclosure: This post was sponsored by Kohl’s.  They sent me a $500 gift card to spend in their home department and a $100 gift card to give away as compensation for this post.  I personally selected all of the items shared and all opinions are my own.  Especially the joke about men not putting trash in trashcans.  Kohl’s had nothing to do with that one.

    Kohl’s is my go-to store for so many things! Bedding, rugs, tablecloths, decor… I buy most of my clothes there, including workout/athletic wear, and I love shopping the jewelry sales around holidays (for gifts but also for me)!

  26. Paula

    Towels and workout gear are my favorites from Kohl’s. The bonus bucks are really good to stretch your spending.

  27. Mary Koepfle

    Thanks for the tip about the Chaps sheets. Will go check them out as you are always honest about
    your opinions.

  29. Stephanie Barsness

    Love your selections. The colander would look great on my open kitchen shelving!

  30. botanic bleu

    The white round bathmat with the scalloped edges is so pretty. That’s just the kind of thing that I love to find.


  31. Adrianne Drebert

    Love the chair! Fun to shop “with” you

  32. Lisa R

    Great looking chair and I’ll bet it can be fixed to be a safe seat! It was only a matter of time before Kohl’s jumped on the “home” bandwagon like their competitors, by the looks of your chair, I hoping they go a little more classic and a little less modern than their counterparts. I’m pretty sure I’m only a few turnpike exits east of you and these last few days have been quite the adventure haven’t they?!?! Going to the store and getting out of the parking lot alive is my goal for these next few weeks!

  33. Cassandra Eastman

    I love that Kohl’s has so many home furnishing items. I’d love to update our bathrooms with new decor, hardware, shower curtains and storage!

  34. Geordi Smith

    Like everyone else – I can’t believe that chair came from Kohls!!! It’s time to dig deeper into their houseware department and turn up some treasures for my home, too.
    I also love the way wood hangers give a closet a sense of order and unity (which is the only thing orderly and unified in my closet).
    May check out those linens for my bed. Time to admit that 20 years is long enough to keep a set of sheets – and my surprise little guy is ready to have me create a space of his own.

  35. Stacey

    I love that chair! I would love to try those sheets, they sound fabulous!

  36. Kathy Bahn

    Wow! As someone who used to purchase almost everything from Kohl’s when I lived in a larger city, I have been “away” from them for several years (like 12), I am so pleasantly surprised by the things you have featured! It would be so much fun to re-visit one while we’re visiting the South this winter!!

  37. Lisa R

    I love Kohls! Would love to win the gift card!

  38. Lee Halbert

    Hi! I love that chair! I would definitely purchase that.

  39. Carleen Malinowski

    I did not know Kohls sold furniture and the white towels look soo pretty on your bathroom shelves.

  40. kara

    Bought dining chairs from their this past Christmas. Tufted and cozy– love them.

  41. Gail

    I agree…..new items really can complement older items. Usually if I have too many antiques (gasp!) in a room and not very many new things I find it ends up looking, well, old! And boring. Love the items you chose and that you didn’t have to compromise your style either! Our bedspread is Vera Wang from Kohls and its my absolute favorite. 🙂

  42. Melissa

    Love everything you chose from Kohl’s. You made it all look beautiful in your home. Thanks for doing a giveaway!

  43. Alta McLaughlin

    We love Kohl’s! Took me a little while to convince the hubs to get a Kohl’s card but he’s a believer now – a BIG one! And those sheets you bought – heck, yeah, the most comfortable ever!

    Thanks for having the giveaway!

  44. Rose

    I’m with you on the white towels. They’re so fresh looking. Just so happens that I’m thinking about refreshing my towels, too! Thanks for doing this giveaway!

  45. Stephanie Parish

    Hi Linda!!! Love the chair!! And you’re right, I would never have thought of Kohls for home decor.. Let alone furniture!! Great marketing on your and Kohls behalf… Finally got me to like your page and checkout your blog! Been meaning to for months! $100 chance and new found reason to ship Kohls.. right on!!

  46. Dianne

  49. Birdiebee

    I would love to change up my bedroom a bit and purchase the Sienna 3-piece Full / Queen Quilt Set. as I love the colors. Kohl’s is my favorite place to shop and I can spend hours walking around the store admiring all of the goodies I would love to purchase.

  50. Mary Potts

    I love Kohl’s and the chair you got is so nice! I have to agree with your comment about Kohl’s customer service. They are very nice to deal with.

  56. Kellybalch

    I’m going tomorrow to look for that bath mat. So cute!

  57. Diane Fitzsimmons

  58. Joanne

    Haven’t shopped their home items in a while, thinking it’s time to do some shopping!

  59. Tammie Greenwell

    I love Kohls. From bathmats to jean jackets. Always great stuff. I’m lucky to have one right up the street from me.

  60. Michelle Turecek

    Love the bathmat! Hmm… I think I need some new ones. New towels are always dreamy!

  61. Judith Grabill

    Kohl’s has a great selection of nice quality photo frames, as well!

  62. Faith Yoder

    I just resized and painted a bed frame for our bedroom and now the worn out bedding needs to be replaced. I have a feeling this is the beginning of a bedroom makeover, so that gift card would come in very handy! 🙂

  63. Patrinky

    Love Kohls!!!

  64. Traci

    I love Kohl’s and could use a new set of sheets!

  65. Ann Romero

    Kohls rocks!

  66. Chantelle Walker

    Dang, I just missed this 🙁 I was going to put it towards a sewing machine!

  67. Nancy Daniels

    New to your blog…love it! I have also used fabric as wall paper and the Kohl’s chair is lovely with it all!

  68. Deb Harris

    I didn’t know Kohls was selling furniture! I love the chair you got & the bath mat, it’s really cute. Some of the most comfortable & warm sheets I’ve had were ones my husband picked using Kohls cash after Christmas one year. I’ve always like kohls, 2 of my boys always found clothes they liked for back to school when they were younger. My daughter bought school clothes there too but when she was in her senior year of college I asked what she wanted for Christmas. She wanted professional looking clothes for student teaching. Kohls had those too.

  69. Donna Scearce

    The chair is very cute!

  70. Lee Ann Personett

    Wow Mariam, thanks for reacquainting me with Kohls! The chair is great and I love the bath mat and towels. I see a trip to Kohls in my future.

  71. Alisha

    I really love the rug for the bathroom!
