Favorite Projects of the Year Challenge!

It’s time to show off your favorite projects of the year at The CSI Project. You all are so talented and we are super excited to see your fabulousness! To start the challenge off, The CSI Girls would like to share some of our favorites with you!


Jenn’s Beachy Laundry Room Redo was uber fantastic…..that girl’s got some serious talent! If you haven’t seen it, you absolutely must click over there to see the amazing before and afters!





One of my favorite projects of the last year was this DIY Monogrammed Cupcake Stand made out of discarded shipping boxes wrapped in brown craft paper, adorned with ribbon and the happy newlywed’s monogram!



Beckie turned this Vintage TV Stand into a fabulous new shelf! Remember those old boxed tv’s from the 70′ s and 80’s?? Amazing, huh?

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 3 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.


Now we want to see YOUR favorites!!!

    Yikes! For some reason I was thinking you gals were taking this week off and the fav project party was next week! (I think the Jan 1 on the side threw me off) Gotta get a few things together and I will be back with mine. (and to scope out everyone else’s)

    Thanks so much for hosting! I only started blogging in August, so my “year in review” is only 4 months – LOL 🙂

    Thank you for hosting! 🙂

  9. […] β) White spirit, το διαλυτικό για τη βελατούρα και το χρώμα (προσοχή: η δουλειά πρέπει να γίνει σε εξωτερικό χώρο, γιατί μυρίζει πολύ αυτό) γ) βερνικόχρωμα στις αποχρώσεις που θέλουμε   δ) πινέλο και ρολό βαψίματος, γυαλόχαρτο  Τα βήματα α) Ανοίγουμε τη συσκευασία και απλώνουμε τα ξύλα σε νάυλον, σε εξωτερικό χώρο. Με ένα μεσαίο γυαλόχαρτο τρίβουμε ελαφρά το καθένα στην εξωτερική του επιφάνεια και σκουπίζουμε τη σκόνη με νωπό βετέξ. β) Με ένα φαρδύ πινέλο απλώνουμε μια στρώση βελατούρας σε όλα τα ξύλα και αφήνουμε όλη νύχτα να στεγνώσει. γ) Το επόμενο πρωί επαναλαμβάνουμε τη διαδικασία αφού τρίψουμε πάλι ελαφρά με ψιλό γυαλόχαρτο και σκουπίσουμε με νωπό πανί. Αφήνουμε πάλι 16 τουλάχιστον ώρες να στεγνώσει. δ) Την επόμενη μέρα τρίβουμε πάλι ελαφρά και σκουπίζουμε. Τώρα είμαστε έτοιμοι να εφαρμόσουμε το χρώμα. Στη συγκεκριμένη έκανα διχρωμία.  Με το μικρό ρολό η δουλειά έγινε εύκολα και γρήγορα. Για το σχέδιο: βρίσκω στο διαδίκτυο ένα μοτίβο που μου αρέσει και το εκτυπώνω. Με ένα μικρό καρμπόν το περνώ στο ξύλο και το γεμίζω με χρώμα. Το μοτίβο στα πλαϊνά του επίπλου έγινε με ελεύθερο χέρι *** Η συγκεκριμένη κατασκευή παίρνει μέρος στο διαγωνισμό του thecsiproject.com  […]
