Winners of the Painted Walls with Graphic Shapes Challenge!

WOW.  The projects entered into the challenge this week were AMAZING!  We were so impressed by the creativity, hard work, and talent that went into each one.  What a treat, to be able to view these masterpieces!

Our guest judge, Wendy Hyde from The Shabby Nest, felt the same way.  Here is what she said:

I had an amazing time judging this week’s CSI Challenge.  All the entries were great….so it wasn’t easy for me to narrow it down.  I loved seeing how the use of paint and graphic shapes can really transform a room and make it look modern and fresh!  Kudos to all who entered on your patience and talent!
