Makeover Madness Tutorials and a Linky Party

This year we decided to forgo spring basketball and have a little bracket of our own! We kicked off our first-ever Makeover Madness tournament with 16 amazing DIY projects. After multiple rounds of head-to-head face-offs and reader voting we narrowed it down to our final four: City FarmhouseIn My Own StyleMy Fabuless Life, and Thistlewood Farms.
Our final four bloggers then came to our headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa to meet the BHG editors and compete in a final challenge. They had eight hours to turn a basic Ikea dresser into a something memorable! Our editors loved hanging out with all of them and were amazed with what they created in so little time!
The final face-off came back to reader voting and in the end, Diane of In My Own Style took home the win for her secretary-style desk! You can find out more about the finished projects and some behind-the-scenes videos here.
Plus, all four fabulous bloggers are sharing step-by-step instructions for their makeovers on their blogs today! Scroll through to find links to their makeovers and share your own projects with our Makeover Madness linky party at the end of the post. We’ll all be pinning our favorite projects into this Makeover Madness Pinterest board and on April 23rd we’ll share our five favorite projects!
