Summertime means summer projects. There's plenty of sunshine and warm weather to tackle lots of painting jobs that you've been thinking about since the winter. So to celebrate we've teamed up with Krylon for the 2nd Annual Summer Contest!

The rules are simple: publish a new photo, video, or step by step Instructable that documents your project. The project must involve spraypaint in some way. Any brand of spraypaint can be used.

So get to it with your own summer project. It can be something small or incredibly intense. That's entirely up to you. We can't wait to see what you'll make!
