This phase is currently closed to further activity.
Reflecting on the recent Adore the Outdoors activity where we asked you to share a story of an outdoor space you love, we'd now like you to use those ideas to think about how you would create a new outdoor living/entertaining space or transform an existing one.
“If you can dream it, you can do it.” – Walt Disney
We are looking for you to share your dream outdoor living/entertaining space transformation. How would you improve the area? Would you build or refinish your deck, refresh a faded fence or patio stones, stain your concrete walkway, or paint your furniture, flower planters, accessories or even your grill? The possibilities are endless! Tell us what Rust-Oleum products you’d choose to help you with this project and why. Or perhaps there’s a product you wish existed that we haven’t thought of yet?
The Rust-Oleum team will select a group of finalists for the community to vote on and the #1 crowd favorite will be our winner!
This is going to be our biggest challenge of the year and that means a really big prize! In addition to earning Creator Coins and a Master Creator badge in the community, we will be offering the winner $5,000 in gift cards to a home improvement center of their choice to help them transform their outdoor space.
We are very excited to be able to offer such a substantial prize to help someone’s dream become a reality. There are some strings attached, however. The winner will be expected to use the prize to complete the submitted transformation by September 5, 2016. Before and after photos must be shared inside Creator's Studio. If you will not be able to complete your project in the specified time frame, please do not enter this challenge. Prizes are non-transferable and must be used for the intended purpose as described in your challenge submission.

A compelling reason for / personal impact of project.
You have a ‘before’ photo.
The winner will be asked to use the prizes he/she receives to complete the outdoor make-over and share an ‘after’ photo once the project is finished. This must be done by Labor Day of this year (Monday, September 5, 2016).
Outdoor Transformation Examples: We are looking for your plans to build/renovate/transform spaces like a backyard patio, deck, garden sitting area, gazebo, or porch. These are just a few examples to help get the DIY inspiration flowing. Any outdoor living, entertaining and/or retreat area will be eligible.
