The urge to improve one's home comes naturally to DIYers. For the Home Improvement Contest, we challenge you to tap into your creativity and make your home more beautiful and functional.

Whether it is fancying up your kitchen’s backsplash, fixing up that cracked and broken drywall, or removing and improving those outdated popcorn ceilings there is always something that needs to get done around the home.

Whatever it is that you do to transform your house into a home, show it off for a chance to win an array of useful products from Kreg Tools including a Mobile Project Center, a Rip-Cut, and the new Accu-Cut. Grab your tool belt and take a quick walk around your home to see what could use a little TLC.
