CLEVELAND (MMD Newswire) September 11, 2012 -- Think you have a fast fix or simple solution that could help other homeowners with their household projects? If so, Krylon®, the nation's leading spray paint manufacturer, wants to hear about it for their "Make it G8 in 8" contest! From now until Friday, December 14, 2012 at 12 noon ET, homeowners are invited to upload their easy eight-minute-or-less project "fix" for a chance to win weekly and monthly prize packages. And one lucky winner will receive the ultimate "G8 in 8" prize package worth more than $5,000.
"Consumers are always looking for ways to easily fix everyday items around the house like covering scratches in furniture, touching up outdated light fixtures and even saving rusty items from the trash," explained Denise Patterson, Krylon product manager. "The 'Make it G8 in 8' sweepstakes is a way for those homeowners to share their ideas and fast fixes, while also being entered to win a number of fantastic prizes."
Those who upload projects will be entered to win one, grand-prize package of outdoor equipment, including a riding lawn mower, patio furniture set and gas grill, courtesy of Krylon. Monthly winners will receive an Instructables "Tools and Treats" package.
The "Make it G8 in 8" contest also gives one winner each week the chance to try Krylon's latest product, Rust Protector™. The revolutionary formula adheres directly to metal surfaces and hardens to a tough, corrosion-resistant finish. The fast dry time (in as little as eight minutes) is especially ideal for outdoor projects since it lessens the chance for foreign particles, such as bugs, grass or dirt, to stick to the wet surface.
"Time is valuable. That's why the fast dry time of Rust Protector is so important," added Patterson. "By reducing the dry time, and creating a product that dries 15 times faster than the leading rust competitor, the wait is over when it comes to your home improvement painting projects."
