Family Handyman Upcycling Contest

Have a cool upcycling project you want to brag about? Submit it in our contest!

One of the things that makes DIY so much fun is that it gives the ability to put our own spin on the stuff around our house. Whether that’s taking a piece of furniture and turning into something brand new or repurposing a kitchen cabinet into your home office work station, whatever it is, we want to see it. So enter the contest below and show us your latest and greatest upcycling project.

We’ll award one $500 prize in three categories: best overall, most innovative, and most practical. Our panel of judges will select the winners based on the following criteria:

  • Design & Execution: 30%
  • Orginality/Creativity: 40%
  • Craftsmanship: 30%

So follow the instructions below and show us your projects!
