Crazy Awesome Before and Afters

Well hello! What a refreshing weekend! It was too hot to do much outside (I loathe the extreme heat and humidity we've had lately) but I got a TON of purging done. I'm about 2/3 through our house and it feels fantastic!!

Because of the holiday I'm moving the before and after link up to today. But first, as always, I'm sharing a few of the projects linked up last month. Wow wow wow -- I'm always so impressed and inspired by what these bloggers share!

Stephanie's home office redo stopped me in my tracks:

Those bookcases are everything!! Love every bit.

Kathy's beautiful office was a favorite as well. I mean. Hello -- a fireplace in your office?:

You have to check out her bookcases as well -- with a rolling ladder. I die. 

Ronda shared a simply brilliant DIY pouf project

I don't think I would ever think of this -- absolutely love that she did! ;)

Cassie is working on her master bedroom and that vintage headboard (which I WANT) is stunning:

Those lamps are pretty incredible as well!

Julie found some Ballard pendants for a steal and gave them a quick redo -- best decision ever:
gold island pendants
Her kitchen was already pretty amazing, but these are the icing on the cake!

Holly's porch got some updates and I LOVE the classic colors she used:
red white blue porch
My goodness, what a lovely spot to curl up on during the upcoming fall evenings! Love it! 

I never would have guessed what Tami used to make this flag art

She knocked this out of the park. What a fun and inventive idea!

Finally, two beautiful dresser redos I had to share -- Cynthia gave this dresser a driftwood look:

You seriously won't even believe what the before looked like. Pretty sure that's the most dramatic before and after I've ever seen. :) 

And Amy's ship silhouette dresser is another one that made my mouth drop:

Wow, right?? Love all of the details -- it is truly a piece of art!
