The warm summer days are here and it's time to do all those summer projects outside. In honor of the season we've teamed up with Krylon to bring you the Summer Projects Contest!

Krylon makes a ton of great products for painting and sealing your projects and more! Often when it's time for some Krylon you know you're getting close to the end. So, for the Summer Projects Contest the only requirement is that you use some Krylon product along the way. It can be an accent or a radical new paint job or some protection, it's up to you!

We want to see some awesome projects and we'll be giving away Leatherman tools, gift packs from Krylon and our Instructables Prize Packs that include a one-year Pro membership, t-shirt, and more!

Need some inspiration? Check out Krylon's site for project ideas.

So get going! We can't wait to see what you'll make.
