Joey Eddington, an industrial design student at Brigham Young University, recently won the QUIKRETE One Bag Wonder 2.0 contest with his floating concrete ghost table. Bernie Solo’s mid-century lamp and Roger Young’s outdoor fountain finished second and third, respectively, in the annual challenge to create unique, high-quality do-it-yourself projects using only one bag of concrete mix. Photos and descriptions of all the submitted projects are available at QUIKRETE One Bag Wonder 2.0.
“The project ideas people brought to life with just one bag of QUIKRETE through this contest is truly amazing,” said Frank Owens, Vice President 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.”
QUIKRETE One Bag Wonder 2.0 was judged by members of the company, the leading manufacturer of packaged concrete, HomeMade Modern, an online resource for smart modern home furnishing ideas, and the Home Projects Council, a think tank of home improvement experts. First place received $2,500, second place received $1,500 and third place received $500.
