Rachel Delgado of Hampton, Va.


Phil Tucker of Holland, Mich.


Marquis Cayce of Nashville, Tenn.


“These three finalists all have homes just begging for exterior help,” says Kate Smith, chief color maven at Sensational Color and a judge in the contest. “They have older homes that need to be shaken up with color and new exterior enhancements.

“One homeowner has a dream of a barn red exterior while another wants a front porch for relaxing. The third finalist has actually entered the contest and been a finalist for two previous years. He’s definitely hoping that ‘the third time’s the charm’ for getting the grand prize!”
