SEATTLE —

Painters have finished adding a new design to the top of the Space Needle.

 

Chopper 7 video showed the transformation -- from Galaxy Gold, in celebration of the Needle's 50th anniversary to "Trees," the winning entry in a contest -- was complete on Friday.

 

The designer of the tree motif, Nicole Commins, said she wanted the top of the Space Needle to look like it was standing in the middle of one of Washington's state parks.

 

The design will be up through April. Then, the Needle will return to its standard white.
