Blogger Challenge: Make it Superhydrophobic!
Rust-Oleum NeverWet on Cardboard
We challenged five bloggers to create "superhydrophobic" projects with new Rust-Oleum NeverWet. Before making her weatherproof cardboard box fort, Made + Remade blogger Ellen Foord tested the NeverWet product on a small piece of cardboard to see how it worked.

Ellen's cardboard box fort stood up to the elements and delighted her young daughter. Check out the video and how-to instructions in her cardboard box fort post.
Dan's Tack-Welded Outdoor Table
Made + Remade blogger Dan Lipe chose to work with metal and wood for his Rust-Oleum NeverWet project: a small outdoor table that repels water and withstands rust. He started by shaping and welding steel legs to form the table base.

Here's Dan final table. Readers applaud his design choice for the legs. See how he made it in his blog post, which includes a video and how-to instructions.

See here and in Dan's video how NeverWet makes water bead up on a wood surface.
Kelly's Hand-Dyed Outdoor Curtains
For her project, Made + Remade blogger Kelly Trimble started by dyeing regular cotton fabric with turmeric to create this rich yellow color. She later applied NeverWet to make the fabric act like outdoor fabric.

Kelly's yellow-and-white striped curtains stood the test of a little water and other liquids, but a full-on rainstorm had them soaked. Learn more in her outdoor curtains post.
Michele's Album Cover Cube
Made + Remade blogger Michele Purcell and her husband built a wooden cube and adorned it with vintage album covers for a musical vibe.

In an outdoor setting, Michele's cube table is the life of the party, even if drinks get spilled.
Nick Plays With Paper
For his Rust-Oleum NeverWet project, Made + Remade blogger Nick Britsky decided to go a little avant-garde, making a raincoat out of paper. He cut out the pieces using a regular sewing pattern.

Though the weather wasn't cooperating, Nick wasn't deterred. He created this rain machine for testing purposes.
