Judge’s comments in BOLD!

#3 Sunburst Mirror from a Clock from Architecture of a Mom
Sunburst Mirror
What a creative and resourceful way to repurpose an old, broken clock!  This sunburst mirror is spectacular…and I’m inspired to try looking glass spray paint after reading this stellar tutorial.

#5 Wedding Wagon Upcycle from Minettes Maze
You would not believe the stark contrast between the before and after pictures in this upcycle project…only something like metallic spray paint could help foster such a bold makeover!  An old rusty wagon transformed into a wagon of wedding elegance.  Exquisite work!
#7 DIY Souvenir Washer Necklace from The Benson Street
DIY Souvenir Washer Necklaces at www.thebensonstreet.com
Spray paint can so quickly transform something ordinary into something extraordinary…as evidenced by these darling washer necklaces!  I’m always looking for practical souveniers…the kind I will actually use for a purpose.  And I love the idea of making some fashionable accessories like these to remember a special trip by.  #imsodoingthis
#9 Painting Brass Gives it Sass from Suburble
Spray Painted Brass Giraffes - Suburble
Tara has a great eye because I would have never thought that spray paint could improve upon these already cute pieces…but lo and behold, she did it (and spray paint helped)!  It now has the look of an expensive ceramic piece, but with the durability of brass.  Genius!  Storing that one in the back of the noggin’ for when I have kiddos of my own.  Thanks, Tara!
#13 Spray Painted Cameo Mats from The Learner Observer
cameo final
Gold is my current obsession, so of course, I’m swooning over these gold mats that Thalita transformed using…wait for it…spray paint!  (No surprise there.)  And she made those cameos herself with photo prints and a sharpie.  Now, that’s talent.
#18 Baby Table to Cocktail Cart from Southern State of Mind
Heather not only shows us the power of spray paint to make old things new, but she shows the power of creative thinking!  I’m amazed at how she was able to transform a baby changing table into a sophisticated cocktail cart!  Remarkable!

#6 One of a kind cooler from Minettes Maze

This is just too fun! Take an old cooler and make something unique and fun! Great job! And she has a friend named Fritzey, which I think is really cool!

Congratulations to all of the CSI winners. Be sure to go grab your button here and proudly display on your blog.

You have earned it!
