It's D.I.Y. July and we are searching for Australia's best D.I.Y. projects of 2022. Winners will get the opportunity to get their work featured in the September issue of the Bunnings Magazine.


We'll thrilled to see so many high quality entries already. Please keep them coming in, and add your comments and likes to the entries on our competition gallery


To enter, just share your project here on Bunnings Workshop and make sure you select the D.I.Y. July entry label when you submit your post. If you need a hand with entering, please don't hesitate to ask


There are five categories in the competition:


  • Best bathroom or laundry makeover


  • Best kitchen makeover


  • Best paint project


  • Best small project


  • Best upcycling makeover. 


Our judging panel includes Workshop's D.I.Y. expert Mitch Mclean, Dulux colour expert Andrea Lucena-Orr and Bunnings Magazine editor Katrina O'Brien. 


Try to include as much information in your competition entries as possible, including before and after photos, tools and materials used, and the steps you took to complete the project.


The kitchen pictured above was a makeover by Chelsea and James from Western Australia, one of the 2021 competition winners which ended up featured on the cover of the Bunnings Magazine last year. 


Apologies to our Kiwi friends that the competition is open to Australians only this year but we will certainly be looking to expand in 2023. Of course, our wonderful New Zealand community members are always welcome to share their projects with us anytime. We love your work!


Finally, many thanks to the supporters of the competition this year: Bunnings Magazine, Dulux, Scotch, Command and Openpay. We appreciate your support of the Workshop community and encouraging people to have a go at their own home improvement projects. 


We look forward to seeing your projects soon. Don't forget that as per the competition terms and conditions, entries close at 11:50pm AEST on Saturday, 30 July 2022. Good luck!
