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is fancying up your kitchen’s backsplash, fixing up that cracked and broken drywall, or removing and improving those outdated popcorn ceilings there is always something that needs to get done around the home.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

How It Works

Write an Instructable

Create a new Instructable that fits the guidelines outlined in the contest description above. To be eligible, Instructables must be published between Jul 3, 2017 and Aug 28, 2017 (11:59pm PT).


Upon publishing your Instructable you'll see checkboxes for open contests. Select Home Improvement Contest 2017. If you have entries currently eligible for entry, it will also show up by clicking "Enter this Contest" on the right side of this page.


Entries are accepted by Instructables staff within one business day Monday - Friday. What matters is the submission time, not acceptance time.


A panel of judges made up of Instructables staff and respected members of the community rate the finalists. The averages of the ratings determine the winners.
