Looking for a fun DIY project [2] this weekend? Why not participate in Inhabitat’s first ever Spring Greening Contest for a shot at fame, fortune, and a $200 gift certificate to the Inhabitat Shop [3]! It’s the perfect time for a bit of spring cleaning, and we want you to take any old furnishing, appliance, or household item and give it a brand new application instead of tossing it in the trash. We’ve already received some stellar entries, and we’ll be showcasing the best and brightest projects in an exciting round of online voting — so break out that dusty dresser or busted chair [4], give it a brand new life, slap on a fresh coat of (eco-friendly) paint, and let it shine for a chance to win!

The deadline for submissions is Friday March 27th

All you have to do to enter the contest is:
1. Sign up for the inhabitat newsletter [5]
2. Send a photo and description of your project to editor at inhabitat.com
