Heads up all, there’s some home improvement related contests going on right now that I wanted to share with you! First, some creative friends have formed a new blog called the CSI Project:
This week’s CSI Project contest is the ‘Hardware Store Challenge’ and I’m the guest judge this week, oh yessss. Your project need only include one element from a hardware store such as nail gun or staple gun, lumber or wood trim, gardening supplies, tools, paint projects, anything purchased at a hardware store.
Be sure to add the CSI button to your post to be eligible !
For all the requirements, look right here.
This week, the winner will receive a $50 dollar gift certificate to Sparkle & Metal.
You have until Thursday at 12 p.m. EST to link up.
One Project Closer is hosting their annual summer Before and After Contest 2010 benefiting Habitat for Humanity. Last year, I was one of the weekly winners for our staircase redo. This contest is a fantastic opportunity to show off your best Before and After, win a little dough, and help out a worthy cause.
You submit your renovation project that you worked on yourself, and then a winner is chosen once a week and featured on the site. The weekly winner also receives a $50 dollar gift certificate to either Lowe’s, Home Depot, or Amazon.com !
Best of all, the OPC gang donates $100 dollars to Habitat for Humanity in your honor (and for each weekly winner).
At the end of the summer, the community votes, and the winner receives a bonus $150 dollar gift card.
Check out all the details right here.
Finally, you know I’m a huge fan of MirrorMate having successfully transformed my own hall bath mirror with their product. MirrorMate is hosting a MirrorMate Makeover contest for anyone who has purchased a frame and installed in their own home.
The best makeover winner will receive a $500 dollar American Express gift card – you can find all the rules right here. And if still haven’t spruced up your bathroom space with a MirrorMate frame, you can use the code CENTS to receive 15% off your purchase !
