Before & After –Your Favorite Room

This Week’s Challenge: Before & After -Your Favorite Room

Come and wow Dutch Boy paint with your fabulous rooms made over.

Reminder of the CSI Guidelines

1. All entries for this challenge need to incorporate the challenge’s theme.We are not simply a linky party. We have a specific theme for each week. All submissions are competing to be the judge’s top pick. If your project does not incorporate the theme we will have to remove it.

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. HERE are the buttons. 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. You are welcome to enter as many themed projects as you like! You also give us permission to add your name to our newsletter list.  If you wish to unsubscribe you may do so at any time.

(Official rules are available here.)

Dutch Boy will go through each project and find their personal #1 favorite, plus their Top 10.Visit thecsiproject.com

Jen, Beckie, and Amanda will also choose their favorite projects and award those people with a special button to display on their blogs.

One winner will be chosen to receive 4 gallons of Dutch Boy paint.  WOW that will help the remodeling budget!!!

    Hi girls!

    Thanks for hosting…I actually thought I had put your button on this post, and just realized it wasn’t there, so it’s added now (mine is he guest kids room makeover – no. 102). Sorry about that!!

    Is the linky closed already? I just finished my post:-(

    Thank you for hosting, girls! I haven’t gotten to enter for awhile, so I’m really glad to be back. I’ve already visited several of the other participants, and there are some great before-and-after shots! I think y’all bring out the best in everyone. 🙂

    This was my first entry at the CSI Project, too, and I’ve loved browsing all the rooms. I hope you do another “before and after” room makeover challenge in a few months because I love all the inspiration (and, have a few rooms I didn’t get to post about yet). 😉

  5. So excited to be entering my first here at the CSI Project! Now, I’m off to see all these other fab makeovers…

  6. I linked up my family room – it is number 35- and then saw that I needed to republish it because it was a past post. I went in and republished it, apparently rendering the link invalid! I have re-linked it as number 74, so can you remove number 35 as it does not work? Sheesh!!! So sorry for the mess up!

  7. I’m afraid I’ve rather greedily entered three rooms.

    I just couldn’t resisit making the most of this week’s theme!

    Thank you so much for having me.


  8. This is a great challenge…Before & After rooms are always my fave!

  9. Lots of great before and afters to look at this week. This will be a fun one! Thanks.
