THIS FRIDAY IS THE FIRST DAY OF SPRING!!!

Can you tell we’re excited? We’re midway through March, the birds are chirping and we want to encourage you all to green your spring cleaning with our first ever Spring Greening Contest! We all have a few derelict furnishings, defunct appliances, and otherwise unused items collecting dust in the closet – rather than tossing them in the trash we want you to re-furbish, re-purpose, and re-think them into functional examples of DIY design. Send us a picture of your project and we’ll select our favorites for a round of online voting and chance to win some great prizes including a $200 gift certificate to the Inhabitat shop in addition to all of the fame and fortune of being showcased on Inhabitat. So break out that dusty dresser or busted chair, 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 is:
1. Sign up for the inhabitat newsletter
2. Send a photo and description of your project to editor at inhabitat.com

Repair and reuse have been hot topics as of late, with everyone from technology renaissance man Saul Griffith to Worldchanging editor Alex Steffen advocating a shift towards repairable, long-lasting heirloom products. We’ve been covering reclaimed design for quite a while here on Inhabitat, and love to see objects given new life through smart reuse. Taking care of objects also makes good economic sense, and a little bit of TLC goes a long way towards producing a personalized object that you’ll cherish for a lot longer than the cheap store-bought variety.

The winner of this year’s contest will receive the fortune and fame of being showcased on Inhabitat in addition to a gift certificate for $200 in great green goods from the Inhabitat shop! Three runner ups will each receive an herb-sprouting eggling of your choice.

The deadline for submissions is Friday March 27th, so get cracking today!
