Cre8tive New Year


A message board that I belong to is doing a modifed version of Apartment Therapy's January Jumpstart from 2007. Here are the details:

This January we are trying something totally new. We’re holding our first small makeover contest. We’re not looking for whole homes; we’re inviting you to tackle one small project: painting a bureau, reupholstering a chair, whatevering a whatever. We’re going to do it together and share tips, resources and inspiration.

Together we can get them all done.

Why? Because everyone has at least one decor project in their home that they’ve been dying to do and January is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf and get old chores done.

In addition, we’re going to award prizes for those that really shine.

Which Projects?

* Project must have been done by you (DUH!)
* Project must be started and completed before deadline of February 1st (starting early is fine)
* Project must be a small project that can be completed in one to two weekends (though gathering materials may take time beforehand)
* Project may deal with the revamping of a piece of furniture, or a window, wall or floor treatment
* We are looking for makeovers, hacks and restoration projects
* We are looking to share skills, tools and resources that have broad appeal with all of our readers

What to Submit?

Submissions must consist of:


* 5 pictures (before, 2 after, tools and in process shot)
* name of project, your name (online name and/or real name), location
* list of tools and resources
* step by step how to instructions
* expense and time spent

When?

* Contest Runs for four weeks, from January 7th through February 1st
* Members will vote from Feb. 2 -6
* Winner are announced on Monday, February 9th
