Wow. Summer just flew by, and it’s already time to wrap up our second annual Before and After series, 2009. We had 14 amazing submissions ranging from kitchens to walkways, and backyards to fireplaces. Each entry was an inspiring transformation and we want to extend a huge thank-you to everyone that participated. For their hard work, each of our weekly winners received a $25 gift card to either Lowes, Home Depot, or Amazon.
We also hope this series helped raise awareness for Habitat for Humanity. Habitat is a worthy organization dedicated to providing every man, woman and child a decent, safe and affordable place to live. As part of this series, we donated a total of $490 to Habitat. We hope you enjoyed the “Habitat Quick Facts” and will consider volunteering or making a donation of your own.
And now the moment many of you are waiting for! We need to select the grand prize winner, who will receive a $150 gift card to home depot, lowes, or another home improvement store of their choice.
Here’s a recap of the submissions. You can read more about each project by clicking the text introduction. After you’ve read through, scroll to the bottom and cast your vote.

#9) Melissa and Nick- after some serious work, they have a beautifully landscaped backyard.
