We’re Ba-ack! : APPLY FOR A LOWE’S SPRING MAKEOVER WITH CHRIS LOVES JULIA!

Exciting news! Once again, we’re teaming up with Lowe’s to help one homeowner–anywhere in the country–transform a space in their home this spring. Last year, entries poured in from all 50 states and DC, too, and we ended up on Long Island, New York! It was a great experience, with an awesome before and after and now we’re looking for our next big before and after!  (There’s a link to the entry form at the bottom of the post. Please note: we will only be accepting entries through tomorrow, so don’t delay!)

This time, Lowe’s would like us to help a homeowner transform and elevate kitchen or bathroom in their home!! Keep in mind, we’ll be doing the makeover over a weekend, so while we won’t be able to completely gut your space, there’s a lot of cosmetic refreshes we can tackle in that time.

Especially considering our team we’re bringing with us. This year, Lowe’s asked us to assemble our own dream team of people to help us carry out our vision for the homeowner, and we couldn’t be more excited that Kim and Scott Vargo (yellowbrickhome.com) and Daniel Kanter (manhattan-nest.com), as well as Chris’s super handy brother, Brandon (it runs in the family), have agreed to fly in and help us whip your kitchen or bathroom into shape!

We hand-picked these bloggers not only because they are fun (!), but Kim, Scott, and Daniel also all have an excellent eye for design, are so detail-oriented in their work, and are the best of the best in the DIY world.

TO BE ELIGIBLE, YOU MUST:
• Live in the United States
• Be looking to fix up a kitchen or bathroom within your residence.
• Must be the owner of your home.
• Be outgoing, energetic, and fun with unique stories to tell.
• Be comfortable being on camera and/or interviewed by media.
• Be in need of expert design help from Chris Loves Julia.
• Be able to make quick decisions in order to keep tight timelines.
• Be available for a 2-3 day period to complete the makeover between March 1- April 31.
• Allow photos of your home to be shared online.
• Must be 21 years of age or older to apply.
• Complete the online application form and agree to the Terms below.

We will only contact eligible participants.

TO APPLY or NOMINATE SOMEONE FOR A MAKEOVER, CLICK HERE! Quick!! Entries close tomorrow Friday, January 27th at 11:59pm ET. 

UPDATE: A few people are having difficulty adding a video. Please note, a video is completely optional and not necessary. Feel free to skip that portion of the application.

This post and project is sponsored by Lowe’s Home Improvement. Can’t wait to come see one of you!

      Is there any chance at all I could still submit? I have most of my entry saved – lost it a few times trying to submit 😢

    So grateful to have the opportunity to apply. My 15 y.o. daughter and I read your blog daily, and I read Yellow Brick Home anytime they post. The All Star Team for sure!
    My application was lost four or five times in the process of applying yesterday (oy!), so I didn’t have the opportunity to go over it again as I’d hoped before sending…kiddos to pick up from school and all. Anyway, here’s to hoping perseverance paid off! :)

    Hi Julia –

    I tried to upload a video and it only made it to 73%. Womp womp. Managed to get all the photos up though. Hopefully you’ll get what you need in pics, or just a 73% complete video of our kitchen, ha! Thanks for doing this! =)

    We just bought a new old house that we’re renovating. It has a large 1969 deck, complete with flared railing, that needs some serious help. :) Maybe you guys could do an exterior makeover at some point and I’ll apply for that! Good luck on this one–can’t wait to see the finished space!

    Wow, this is so exciting! I just submitted an application. Whether I win (fingers + toes crossed!) or not, considering all the application questions was such a great way for me to put into words what I’d really like my kitchen to be like someday. Thanks for the inspiration to put my dreams on paper–that’s the first step to making them come true someday, right?

    This is so fun! It really adds life & a sense of community to your blog. I squeezed my entry in in the nick of time. I can’t wait to see what you do, these were some of my favorite posts & snapchat/instagram sessions last year

    Ack! If It said this page is no longer available when I hit submit, does that mean my effort was wasted? The page refreshed when I was halfway done and I had to start over. Despite rushing like crazy, I finished a few minutes after midnight. :-(

    Too short notice :( I just put my kid down and finally have time to seat and fill in the form and upload the pics I took and it is closed. Dang it is 9:21 here in the west coast and missed this opportunity 😭😭😭

    Would be great if next time you could at least leave the application up until midnight on the west coast.

    Oh no! I tried to submit my application just as the clock hit midnight! SO sad I missed this as our kitchen is a complete eyesore!

    I submitted tonight and got an error! It was before 11:59p on 1/27 (it was 11:56p!), and I got “NO LONGER AVAILABLE.” Is there a way for me to send this manually? I will have to retype everything but I am really upset to not be considered because a tech glitch. Thank you!

      I’m so sorry you had a tough time. We don’t have control over the application submissions. It should have been open until midnight eastern time.

    I am SO sad…took me so long to complete my application, that I submitted at 10:15pm and when I submitted, It says “no longer available.” Saddest day ever.
