SEATTLE - Workers have begun painting the top of the Space Needle, replacing the 50th anniversary Galaxy Gold paint job with a design by the winner of a contest.

 

Chopper 7 video shows painters putting on the new design, called Trees.

 

Nicole Commins submitted the design. She 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.
