Design Challenge Voting Starts!

We had some great submissions for our first design challenge!  Who will win the Kelli Kit?  It's your turn to decide!

Kelli Kit



Here are our entrants below:


#1 Karen's Bedroom-Lincoln, NE



What Karen has to say about her entry:  "Recently our youngest daughter moved out. The before picture illustrates what remained of her bedroom. We used a chest of drawers that we were storing in the basement along with some artwork that was not being used. We also used a flat twin sheet as a mock bedskirt. We had fun using what we had and are enjoying the outcome."

#2 Frances's Living Room-Forest Hills, NY

What Frances has to say about her entry:  "I just completed this one day makeover for a client. We move the sofa that was in a bedroom to the living room, accessorized the existing book cases and moved the desk behind the sofa. We added a pair of lamps on the desk to create balance in the room and make the space feel harmonious. The leather chair was in another part of the apartment that works great in the living room giving it a casual but modern feel. The buddha head was also in another room, we used it here to add visual interest and also create a sense of serenity. Total makeover was completed in 6 hours."

#3 Christy's Room-Lincoln, NE

What Christy has to say about her entry:  "I did a little rearrange of my son's room. I had this amazing US map made of plywood and carpet samples. We finally got that hung up. I also moved the bed over to make a little reading nook in the corner. We placed a bean bag there so he can go and hang out if he needs some alone time."

I vote for myself! #3.

I didn't know I was going to be competing against a professional! I thought we were supposed to redesign something in our own house. Makes mine look a little 3rd grade. Good thing the room is for a kindergartner!

#2 definitely!!

Melessa said...

I vote for #3 as well!

#2 By Far. I liked the change in arrangement quite well and within budget. The bedspread could use some updating would be my only qualm. Overall, I think this one certainly looked the best.

#3 Christy gets my vote!

I vote #2 - Way to go Frances, it looks great!

Hilary said...

This is hard because #2 looks straight out of a magazine. And since they're professional, that seems a bit unfair. So on behalf of all crafters everywhere, I vote for #3.

Wow.....#2 is amazing! We are impressed {although we do think that map should recieve a gold star for creative fun in recycling carpet squares!}
Thanks for following us on twitter - it is so fun meeting new people and seeing wonderful ideas like you guys have....love your site!

#2 is really impressive! Playing "musical furniture" makes a difference. I don't think it requires a professional to do that! In fact... it has inspired me to switch a few things around in my own place...
