« Part 2: Time To Vote Part 3 of HR Challenges series Part 4: Mirror, Mirror Prizes.. »

April 8, 2012

This month we had our “Mirror Mirror Challenge”. Last week people voted… and the results weren’t what I was expecting!

We had 4 entries and .. drum roll…. they each got a vote, so we have a four-way tie!

And so our winners are:
  • Craftsman On The Lake (2 submissions)
  • PaBull
  • FollowYourHeart

The Golden Trophy will be proudly displayed on their profile pages as well as the project pages.

Thanks to everyone who participated. (See all the entries here.)

Thanks Debbie,

It was fun to have participated with the others. This forum needs some infusion. There’s some good stuff going on here. The Can do crowd has a lot to offer and the way things are today we need to do a lot of it ourselves. When you’ve seen it done, you realize that the great mystery of how to accomplish things is much less of a mystery and more of an ‘anyone can do it if she/he wants to’.

Kinda hard because unlike LJ’s where people make boxes and jigs and tables and such, Refurbers is often longer projects like whole rooms, kitchens etc. Takes time. I’d think you’d either need to leave a large time frame for each challenge which would make it way to long a time frame. Maybe smaller projects, preexisting projects, or parts of projects like the mirror was part of bathrooms or bedrooms, or floors, or moldings.

I concur with Craftsman. There are several ways to do this, though. This Old House just finished with a contest looking for kitchen remodels. The rules were rather open, just had to be completed (I’m sure the rules are still available). Another remodeling magazine is looking for kitchens or bathroom remodels for their contest, had to be completed after 2009.

As Craftsman said, remodels take time. You would probably get a lot of HR submissions if you made it a particular room in the house (or deck, backyard makeover, etc.) and allow for anything built after a certain date.
