It’s time to link up to the Kid’s Places and Spaces Challenge!

Here at the CSI Project we love a good before and after project and what better to use than paint to transform a room. Our sponsor this week is Dutch Boy and if a room transformation is in your future, then be sure to check out the Dutch Boy line of paint.

Our recent guest bloggers have absolutely inspired us with their creative kid’s room transformation projects.  If you missed them earlier, go check out these creative projects:

First, we had a cute little girl’s Rapunzel room  from All Things Belle.

We also had an organized and fun kids’s homework space  from Our Adventures in Big ole Texas.

Then, we finished off our tutorials with a wonderful boy’s room makeover from Midwestern Sewing Girl.

Thank you for the  inspiration, ladies! You certainly know how to transform a room with paint  and decor.

When you linkup your kid’s room and spaces projects, you can expect a visit to your blog from this week’s guest judge, Ashley of Make it and Love it.

Ashley will be checking out each room entered into the challenge, and choosing her 10 favorites, plus the overall winner of the challenge!  You can read more about Ashley Here.

Please remember that to be eligible to win this week’s challenge and giveaway, you must provide a link back to the challenge in your entry post.  It’s easy–we have a button ready for you to insert into your post HERE.  For additional challenge rules, please read below.

You’ll find the linkup for this week’s challenge at the end of this post, following the challenge rules.  This challenge begins at midnight (PST) Wednesday, November 2 , and ends at noon (PST) Friday, November 4th .

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 2 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.

A note from the new CSI Girl:

You may have known that The CSI Project has been in transition from ownership by Jen and Beckie, to me, {Dee}. This week will be the first week that they will not be picking projects. From now on, there will be one pick made by me called The CSI Pick of the week and by our guest judges.

I want to thank Jen and Beckie for all they have done and I hope to continue this great legacy that is the CSI Project. I am always so amazed by YOU, the amazing bloggers and crafters that link up every week. Let’s keep creating, Sharing and Inspiring.

We also have a new Facebook page. Go here to “like” us.

So, let’s get on with the party! Happy linking!


I am a craft lovin', Diet coke drinkin' kind of girl! I love glitter and anything leopard print. My passions are crafting, fitness and living a healthy lifestyle and of course my family. The CSI Project believes in the mission to Create, Share and Inspire. When you create and share, you are sure to inspire! Hope you come away from The CSI Project inspired and come back anytime!!!
