November Before and Afters!

Sooooo, I just counted the number of Monday's left till Christmas to be funny and freak you out and when I counted and I freaked out. I recounted three times. Only seven Mondays left. OMG.

So yeah. Today we're kicking off November with another before and after shindig, where you link up crazy awesome projects that (hopefully) include a before shot because those are the BEST! As always I'll highlight a few before we start.

I say this every month but there were so many good ones I couldn't whittle it down. I added a few extra to this before and after round up -- enjoy!

Kammy's house. Seriously. Just look at this!:
It looks like a movie set. Oh my goodness. She shares the changes they made to the exterior this summer here. Kammy, the set of flags was an excellent call. Tell your husband I said so. ;)

Jaime's bathroom underwent a makeover and it is so bright and modern now, with antique touches -- my favorite!:

I say this a lot but you really need to check out the before pics to get a full appreciation for this makeover! It is a completely different space. 

Tara's dinging room table looks straight out of Restoration Hardware:

They didn't build it, they just refinished the one they had (check out the comments for details on what they used). If you love the more natural look like this, take a second look at what you already have and what it could be!

Wow, talk about a transformation! Shelley's new kitchen is a STUNNER!:

I'm telling you, the before really shows you how big of a transformation this was. I LOVE her beautiful island!

Cristina hit it out of the park again…why am I not surprised? This is the best closet makeover I've ever seen:

Holy cats. Amazing!! So much storage and those little tip out drawers? There's literally a spot for everything.

I love Carrie's foyer updates, especially that awesome planked wall!:

And Katie's mudroom looks so good too -- I love those dark doors!:

I bet that door lets so much light in too -- love this space.

And last but not least, I thought Anne's bedroom updates are so pretty and soothing:

I've got bedrooms on the brain lately -- I think it's part of nesting for the holiday season and hosting visitors. This would be such a lovely spot to lay your head! 

OK folks, if you'd like to be considered for next month's round up, be sure to link to this post in yours or copy and paste this button into your post:

  5. AHHHHHHH so excited to see my house on the first feature!!! I'll be honest, still can't believe we live here. Haha. I will tell the hubby - the boss of DIY blogging says the flags are a YES. :) I think he knows that now that they are up actually... Love this party SO MUCH. Thanks for hosting.
