The winner was a “Ghost Table.” Second place was a mid-century lamp. Third-place was an outdoor fountain. And the common ingredient: concrete.
The Quikrete One Bag Wonder 2.0 contest brought these concrete projects to life, as well as many others, on the road to promoting and supporting the idea of DIY concrete projects. Winners. As the title suggests, the contest is in its second year.
“The project ideas people brought to life with just one bag of Quikrete through this contest is truly amazing,” said Frank Owens, VP of marketing for The Quikrete Companies. “The creativity, craftsmanship and quality of all the submissions really made selecting the winners difficult, but I think the design, technical execution and finished product of the top three helped them narrowly edge out some of the other competitors.”
First place received $2,500, second place received $1,500 and third place received $500.
The One Bag Wonder contest was judged by members of Quikrete, HomeMade Modern, an online resource for smart modern home furnishing ideas, and the Home Projects Council, a think tank of home improvement experts.
