Runs for Cookies: Transformation Tuesday #81

Glad Transformation Tuesday! It is late as I sit down to write down this, so I could not get it accomplished in time. I used to be working by myself transformation for the previous couple of hours–Eli’s bed room. I did not do something massive; I simply could not stand to take a look at how messy it was and the way it smelled like canine (Joey spends his time in there). There was canine hair in all places and I do not know the way he may stand to reside like that!

So, whereas he went to the county truthful along with his girlfriend, I cleaned it the most effective I may with out going by way of his private stuff. It appears one million instances higher. (I will not submit photos as a result of Eli hasn’t even seen it but and I do not know if he would need me to share pics.)

Anyway, listed below are a number of readers’ transformations right this moment. There are a pair that I am saving for subsequent week, so should you despatched me one and it is not right here, then test subsequent week.  Get pleasure from!

We constructed a lake home in Maine about 20 years in the past when my children have been little. This spring and summer time we determined it was time for a brand new dock. Twenty years in the past we constructed a PT dock. We’d had sufficient of placing in and taking out the very heavy sections, so we invested in an aluminum dock with wheeled sections.

Really easy to place in, and I like the chairs, desk and bench we purchased for it.  We additionally put a laminate countertop in once we constructed it, and though there was nothing flawed with it, the laminate appears low-cost and tacky. (Nobody is there if we aren’t, we don’t lease it out.) Love the brand new granite tops.  Additionally purchased a brand new chrome steel range; the present range got here out of our final home once we changed it with a business range. It’s a terrific place to go in the summertime and winter.


Christine, what an lovely dock! It appears like the right place to take a seat and chat. And it is humorous that the hen was posing within the “after” image 😉  So far as the kitchen, wow–it appears a lot brighter! I occur to love laminate counter tops, so I do not suppose it regarded unhealthy in any respect, however your granite ones look so nice–and they positively brighten up the room. I guess you are loving it!  -Katie

I provide you with the concepts and my husband goes for it. This can be a small transformation however even small ones make a distinction and take time to do.  The primary image is the earlier than image -after killing the weeds and eradicating them. The second image wooden chips have been added, the wooden changed on the bench and stepping stones added. Subsequent, we could do the proper aspect of the trail.


Christine, I like that dynamic–you provide you with concepts and your husband does them. Feels like a terrific concept to me! 😉  I can not recover from what an enormous distinction one thing so simple as mulch could make. And the brand new stone pathway and bench look nice. I would not name this a small transformation–it appears like a unique area!  -Katie

That is kind of a reverse transformation. I moved out of my house on the finish of my lease and into a brand new house my boyfriend. We saved most of his furnishings and let go of most of mine. It was plenty of work (we moved the whole lot ourselves), however you’ll be able to see right here we did it. Plus, I really managed to promote the whole lot on this room we have been eliminating!

(I used to be pleased with how a lot cash I made again by taking the time to promote issues):

Purchased the sofa used for $350, bought for $300

Purchased the espresso desk used for $110, bought for $80

Purchased the chair within the again proper used for $75, bought for $20

Purchased the TV stand new for $300, bought for $200

Purchased the rug new for $150, bought for $50

Saved the whole lot else

So made again $650/$985 (about 2/3) of the cash I spent furnishing the place

Emily, I am a sucker for numbers and for thrifting, and I LOVE that you just have been in a position to promote the whole lot! I completely would have purchased a few issues within the room–it regarded nice. Thanks for together with the numbers–it’s so fascinating to me. I hope that you just take pleasure in your new place along with your boyfriend 🙂  -Katie

If anybody has a metamorphosis to share, regardless of how insignificant you could suppose it’s, please ship it to me so I can submit it on a future Transformation Tuesday!
