We asked our viewers and readers to send us photos of their DIY home renovations that were completed during quarantine, and we were absolutely stunned by the responses.

Not only did we get dozens of submissions showing photos full of incredible home makeovers, but a lot of viewers submitted before-and-after pictures -- and the attention to detail and craftsmanship is truly commendable.

From people finally building a deck in the backyard, to restoring an old piece of furniture or getting around to painting the walls of their home, our viewers got to work during the early days of quarantine.

Since we got so any submissions, we decided to show off some of the best of the best.

Ready for some before-and-after pics? We thought perhaps even if you haven’t done a project yet, these might give you some inspiration for the future.
