So remember last July, when I participated in the One Board Challenge with a group of bloggers to see what we could create out of single board? I came up with a planter, which was okay..(okay it was a YAWN) but those other bloggers.. WOWZA. Talk about knock your socks off!
The reader response to that challenge was OVERWHELMING. So many people had so many ideas for what to do with one board and wanted to participate too. So all us bloggers got together (big shout out to Jen at House Of Wood for doing 99.9% of the work on this) and we all agreed: “Let’s see what they can do".
So this is your chance to show off what you can make with ONE BOARD. Specifically one 8 foot long 1x8 board. And as a reward for the best idea, Ryobi has agreed to give away ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS worth of Ryobi tools. Winner's choice.
Is that not awesome!?!? I mean, if I was eligible, I would enter again! Your garage could look like this:
You can ONLY use ONE 1x8 board, no longer than 8 feet long. It can be any species of wood, and it can be modified in any way, but you cannot add any additional wood to it. You CAN add hardware, glue, paint and stain.
You can create anything you want, you aren’t limited to furniture or decor. ANYTHING.
You have to create the work yourself.. you can't hire someone to do it for you. (Plus that would be a little bit cray-cray!)
We reserve the right to disqualify anyone who we feel isn’t adhering to the “spirit” of the challenge or violates the rules in any way.
HOW TO ENTER:You must share your project with us on either on Faceook, Instagram or Twitter. (Obviously the share/account needs to be public) To indicate it is an entry, please use the hashtag #OneBoardChallenge
If you don’t have any of those social media accounts, or they aren’t public, you can email your entry to: bloggeradmin (at) thekimsixfix.com and I will post on your behalf.
ENTRIES MUST BE POSTED BY MIDNIGHT EST on October 15th 2015.
CHOOSING A WINNER:
Each of the bloggers from the original challenge will choose a favorite and those top choices will be entered into a RANDOM drawing. If you make the ‘final round’ everyone has an even chance at winning the grand prize!
As for me (and those other 17 awesome bloggers from the original challenge?) We are actually doing it again later this week.. with a whole NEW challenge, so be sure to swing by and see what we’ve been up to!
