The July before and after link up (I remembered!)

Well HELLO! How was your holiday weekend? Great I hope! Ours was so much fun and relaxing at the same time. Just the way I like my weekends.

I got literally nothing done and as nice as that was I'm anxious to get moving on things this week. But first, I actually remembered the before and and after party this month! Someone give me a sticker! Seriously, I don't know WHAT is wrong with me. Turning 40 makes my mind mush I guess. Two months in a row I forgot.

So I'm finally back into it here and I can't wait to see what you've been up to. Of course first I have some awesome projects to share with you by some really talented bloggers from the last time we did this thing.

Monica's fireplace makeover is just gorgeous -- I don't think it could get any better:
Adding surround to brick fireplace

I've been eyeing that stunning tile for a project and this may have solidified it.

Kathy had a dark kitchen set and she didn't just paint it like I would do -- she added beautiful and unexpected details that I love:
Painting kitchen table set
I especially love the feet!

Holly shared her living room progress -- her furniture choices and accents are lovely:
Seagrass rug gray walls
I LOVE those tables and must have them.

Angela added some new flooring over the old stuff in her bathroom and it looks fabulous (it isn't real wood!):
Vinyl flooring that looks like wood
I can't believe how much this looks like real weathered wood. Love this simple update.

Yuni's pretty bedroom makeover is so relaxing:
Gray and purple accents in bedroom

I love the combo of gray, gold and purple!

My friend Jenny hit it out of the park again with another kitchen makeover:
Painting kitchen cabinets white
This was a smaller one and the changes made a HUGE difference in here. Love it.

I also loved this fun bathroom makeover that Laura did for her kids:
Aqua penny tile with subway tile

The shower curtain is adorable and I'm such a sucker for penny tile. I like how she used it as an accent in the niches.
