Gallery: Enter Inhabitat’s Spring Greening DIY Design Competition!


Calling all green designers, spring cleaners, and DIY design junkies!

Spring has sprung at last, which means that it’s time to break out the brooms, clean our your closets, and enter our second annual Spring Greening DIY Design Competition! We’re looking for creative and clever designs that find new uses for old household items, so dust off those dated appliances and refinish your unused furnishings into fresh examples of DIY design! We’ll be showcasing our favorite projects in an exciting round of online voting, and the winner will receive all the fame and fortune that comes with being published on Inhabitat in addition to a $250 gift certificate to the Inhabitat shop!

TO ENTER: Submit images of your creation here >

The winner will be showcased on Inhabitat and will receive a $250 gift certificate to the Inhabitat shop, and three runner ups will each receive an Inhabitat t-shirt or tote bag. The deadline for submissions is next Monday, April 26th so get cracking!
