Krylon ColorMaster Challenge: 24 Projects in 24 Hours

Every once in a while I get to adventure out from behind my computer to participate in some really neat blogging and brand events. It's got to be one of the awesomest parts about my job, I must say.
Not only is it great to meet people in the industry, but it's super cool to get to know more about the brands that our friends/readers use in their lives and home projects every day.

This week I'm honored, excited, and a lot nervous to attend and help with the ColorMaster 24 projects in 24 hours challenge with HGTV's "I Hate My Bath" host Jeff Devlin and Krylon spray paint brand.

During the challenge Jeff, Mark, Jen, Gail and I, will construct and hopefully finish a wide range of projects. Some are perfect for beginners, while others are geared more towards those hard-core weekend warriors. Everything from a personalized kid’s growth chart to a cabinet transformed into a bathroom vanity. We're also going to be showing viewers how to build a DIY dog house and even how to turn everyday bundt cake pans into light fixtures. Pretty crazy eh?

The Krylon ColorMaster Challenge goes both Friday, June 28 and Saturday, June 29, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. EST. At the end of day one, the challenge clock will stop and all hammers, sandpaper and cans of spray paint will not be touched again until the live broadcast resumes the following morning. No workin' straight through the night, like I normally do to wrap something up for a deadline. haha!
I seriously hope we can finish all 24 projects. A few of them seem like they won't take too long, but the bigger ones, like the vanity, playroom dutch door and TV cabinet seem like huge undertakings! Good thing Jeff and Mark are there to do some of the heavy lifting for me, because this time around Cason's staying home to watch our girls while I'm away.

I'll own up to the fact that I'm pretty handy with a can of spray paint, but also the first to admit that more than a few of these projects are a bit lot out of my comfort and "diy-know-how" zone. That being said, I'm still anxious to help where I can and learn a bunch of new tips and tricks that I can bring back and implement in OUR home projects!

Okay, so here's how you can get in on the action...
If you visit ColorMaster24in24.krylon.com you can watch the Challenge live for awesome tips and tricks. If you're REALLY determined to get one of these cool project done this Summer, then you can also download the projects and DIY right along with Jeff and our little team. 

As if watching the event isn't cool enough, you can even ask Jeff and the team questions throughout the challenge, via Krylon's social media forums while the projects are underway!
You can tweet @KrylonBrand questions using the #24in24 hashtag
send your inquiries and comments to the Krylon Facebook page.

Upon completion of the Challenge, we’ll be donating finished projects to Habitat for Humanity, the deserving non-profit organization that builds and repairs homes and communities nationwide. Also, because Summer can be crazy, you can go here to get a reminder for the event, so you don't miss it.
I hope you'll stop by on Friday or Saturday for a few quick minutes to look in on how we're doing, or even just to say hello!
