As more and more entries come in each month, we are amazed to see all of the tremendous transformations and beautiful upcycles. So many creative projects made it a tough task to choose our favourites, but with much deliberation the ten runners up and our lucky top prizewinner have been chosen.

This transformation was completed with the help of Rust-Oleum Satin Finish Furniture Paint in Mocha, along with a lick of paint, new flooring and worktops, this kitchen is unrecognisable!
Katie Banyard ingeniously repurposed an old sideboard, bought for £50 on Gumtree, into a beautiful double vanity unit. This makeover was achieved using Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint in Graphite for the exterior, and Winter Grey for the interior of the unit. For added durability and style, Katie used Rust-Oleum Furniture Finishing Wax in Dark for details, then finished the remainder of the unit with Rust-Oleum Furniture Finishing Wax in Clear.
