Transformation Tuesday #7 (More "before and after" photos!)

My kids went back to school today, and I wish I could say that I am happy about it, but I'm not--I feel like we didn't even have a summer! Everything went by so quickly. I just don't feel ready for the school routine just yet.

However, I don't have a choice, so this morning I was up at 6:00 and packing lunches. After dropping them off at school, I'm home in a quiet house--and I thought that blogging frequently would be a great thing to add to my morning routine. Even if I write a quick post a few times a week, doing it first thing in the morning in a quiet house is nice because I don't feel so rushed and I'm not getting interrupted a thousand times.

Anyway, I haven't done a Transformation Tuesday post in a while (other than the rescue pets, which you must check out if you haven't already!) so it's definitely time to share some awesome before and after photos. I know a lot of you like this series--but remember, I can only do them if I get pictures to share, so please send me your photos! You can read how to do that at the bottom of this post.

Anyway, here we go... some readers' before and after photos!

"After four years of owning my own home, I finally updated the ugliest room of my house!"

- Letitia, Indiana, New DIY'er

"My husband and I removed the old trim around the bench, added some framing, painted, and added hooks to our bench area by the garage door!"

-Melissa, Michigan, Amateur Home Renovator

"We've had these ugly lights on our house since we moved in 11 years ago. To make it worse, the one pictured was broken and hanging down thanks to being hit by a wayward basketball. After watching a few YouTube videos, I was confident enough to replace them with new lights. Love the new look!"

- Debra, Missouri, Amateur DIY'er

"During the California drought, we took out the dead grass and weeds and put desert landscaping in our front yard. We hired a landscaping company, so no DIY credit here, haha."

- Megan, California, Now a Fervent Weed Puller

I LOVE seeing the home transformations! Thank you so much to Letitia, Melissa, Debra, and Megan for sharing your before and after photos!

Friends, please keep the pictures coming! Here is how to submit them:

1) Email one "before" photo and one "after" photo, of anything you'd like, to: transformations (at) runsforcookies (dot) com.

Please keep the photos separate rather than collaging them, and refrain from using words, filters or Photoshop on the photos. If necessary, I may crop or resize the photos simply to fit uniformly into the post, but I will try to keep them as original as possible. Also, if there is someone in the photo, just make sure it's cool with them that I share it here.

2) You may include a link to your personal blog or social media page if you'd like (no business or promotional pages--this will be at my discretion). Please include the following:

-One or two sentence description of the transformation

-First Name; Location; A few words of who you are (i.e. "New DIY'er" or "Cat Lover", etc). If you want me to leave out name/location, just let me know.

3) I will post whenever I get enough submissions to do so--it could be one week or it could be several. But I will post them!

Thanks for sharing :)

I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
