Supporting Habitat for Humanity with a Before & After DIY Contest

Before & After DIY Contest: It’s such an honor to partner with OPC The Better Half along with a group of DIY bloggers all summer long who are on a mission to find the very best DIY project of the past year. I’m co-hosting and choosing the winner from this week’s submissions to the Before & After Contest.

  • Submit up to three Before & After home improvement projects each week that YOU have personally completed (no contracted jobs).
  • Re-submit projects every week since the judge changes week to week.
  • One winner will be selected by co-host and will receive a $50 gift card to Home Depot, Lowes, or Amazon (winner’s choice) and $100 will be donated to Habitat for Humanity in the winner’s honor.
  • This week’s contest runs Thursday, August 15 at 10:00 a.m. through Sunday, August 18th at midnight EST. Winner will be announced shortly after.
  • Contests run weekly from June 20th – September 22.
