Like most DIYers, you probably spend just about as much time fixing things and improving your space as you do making new things. Here at Instructables, we have seen a lot of crazy repairs to even crazier objects and projects! We have partnered with BLACK+DECKER to find out what awesome fixing tricks you know.

Enter your awesome repair, fix or improvement for your chance to win great prizes. Presented by BLACK+DECKER.

Multiple entries are accepted, but each entrant can only win one prize. Contest is open to entrants from residents of the United States, or Canada, that are age 18+. The Contest begins at 12:00 a.m. Pacific Standard Time (PT), September 1, 2014. Contest closes for entries at 11:59pm PT, October 27, 2014.
