Transformation Tuesday #73

Happy Transformation Tuesday! Every Tuesday, when I put this post together, I'm reminded of all of the chores I want to complete this spring and that I'd better get a move on it. Summer will be here in a few weeks! It feels like summer today, that's for sure. It got up to 90 degrees yesterday! I think today is going to be just as hot. I went for a run this morning and the humidity was... well, not pleasant.

Anyway, I have some really great readers' transformations to share today! Enjoy...

Today I took a break from work, and did a little transformation project for myself. I really have started liking shoes more than I used to, and they were becoming a bit of a mess and piled up on my closet floor. With the addition of a new shoe rack from Target and getting rid of about 5 pairs I don’t wear anymore, here is the result!

Cathy, all I can say is WOW. The before pictures actually look neater than my shoes in my closet, haha. What a space saver to have the new shoe rack--I'm sure you love it each time you step into your closet. It looks great! -Katie

This is a follow up to our main bathroom remodel. In our original bathroom, we had a giant soaker tub with a tile surround. I’d always wanted a claw foot tub and I found one--for free! It needed some serious elbow grease (and a power sander) to clean it up, but I love the way it all turned out.

Jenn, my jaw literally dropped when I saw this. Not only the tub, but the wallpaper--it's gorgeous! I'm super impressed with the tub restoration; how awesome that you got the tub for free! I hope you're enjoying it :)  -Katie

This is a very small transformation…. A friend is going to be a grandmother for the first time, and she asked me to weave a blanket for her.  She chose the yarn, 100% cotton, and I wove it up for her.  The dimensions of the blanket are 45x60.


Katie, small transformation or not, I love that blanket! Seeing this makes me want to learn how to weave, haha. I have never known anyone to do it and it never even crossed my mind. What an awesome gift for your friend!  -Katie

Thank you for sharing your transformations (and for the inspiration)! Please keep sending them so I can keep posting them. To submit a transformation, just send a before photo and an after photo, along with your name and a description of your transformation, to me at: katie (at) runsforcookies (dot) com. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!


  1. I'm always amazed at how talented your readers are! Both of these are WOW!

  2. All I can say is wow. And the claw foot tub? That must have weighed a ton. We took out a sink made out of that material & holy smokes was it heavy.


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)
