What makes someone a "mastermind"? We couldn't say, but Peter Raphael Russo, with his transformations of Craigslist freebies into functional and fun furnishings, seems to fit the bill...

He was one of three winners named last night in SFWeekly's annual "Masterminds" contest, winning a $2500 grant - and some bragging rights, no doubt, too. We hope to see more of Russo's work in the future, as his "Un-tie" chair and sod grass sofa are just the type of "lemons to lemonade" DIYs we can't get enough of around here.

Find more information about Peter Raphael Russo at his website.
