The CSI Project: ‘Paint’ Challenge!


The day has finally arrived!

It’s time to link up!

Remember the guidelines:

  1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme. Since this week’s theme is “Paint,” you must have something that obviously uses paint in your project. Some examples of paint might be — DIY furniture projects, decorating projects that involve paint, different painting techniques such as glazing, crackling or distressing…
  2. When you enter the challenge, please enter the link to the specific post on your blog that relates to the project — not to your general blog. This will help when a year from now, for example, someone who visits the site can find your project directly.
  3. The CSI Project button must be in your blog post. This makes it easy for other people to come over and join in the challenge if they like – and for us to know that we have the correct entry in the challenge when we’re judging. And if you use an older post, please update it so it’s current. If you don’t want to update it, please add the button to that post and to the sidebar for the week of the contest. Thanks!
  4. The project you submit must be your own project and something you have made. (It can be inspired by something someone else has done, but it must be your creation.)
  5. We ask that you are a CSI follower or subscriber to win the prizes. The more followers the site has — the more giveaways we are able to host.
  6. If you enter a project into our challenge, we ask that you please leave comments on at least 5 other entries in the contest. Not only is it nice to do, but it’s a great way to meet new people and make new friends.
  7. By entering, you give us permission to spotlight your projects — we will give you credit  and link back to your blog.

    Oh, Shoot! I wish I would have read this before cut off! I couldn’t get the link to work and didn’t get to play (boo hoo). I would LOVE for ya’ll to come over and see my Winnie the Pooh Mural. I am at persnicketylittles.blogspot.com. I would love to know what ya’ll think. Thanks to those who did share and the CSI Ladies for having us!

  4. Amanda says:

    Thanks so much for the paint party! I have been looking forward to it since you announced it! And all the postings inspired my second paint project post — so THANK YOU! 🙂

  5. Anita says:

    I hate Central Time! I missed the cutoff time. Oh well, maybe next time. It’s been such a hectic week here. I love so many of the project that were posted!

  6. Thanks CSI team for hosting the paint party. I am not proficient with blogging and linking. I even put my NAME in for the title…embarassing! Thanks to Ann Marie @ TwiceLovely for giving me a tutorial as to how to link up, otherwise I could not have participated. I’m a major fan of hers.

  7. Man I also had no luck posting the button with the given codes. I tried all 3. I finally right clicked on the CSI button picture. Clicked properties and copied the url. Added it as an image to my blog and linked it to the paint project url. Now it is working great!

    Thanks for a fun challenge! Can’t wait for the next one.

  8. Thanks so much for hosting girls! I had fun using some color just for your project! Hope you all are enjoying your week and have a wonderful holiday weekend! ~ Stephanie Lynn

  9. That Red Headed Stepchild’s reverse-stenciled chalkboard plate is really cute! I couldn’t comment on her page, so I figured I’d comment here and leave her a little love somewhere in cyberspace!

    New to wordpress. I was able to add a text link on my sidebar, but am clueless on how to add a button to my postings.:(

  11. I tried the button you have on the sidebar and it worked!

  12. I’m not having any luck getting the button to work!:( I added a link and will try again later.

  13. Strike that…got them to work. Linked up on post and on side of my blog. YAY.
