I like to share some of these occasionally and today is one of those days. I'm blown away by your talent! Mary sent me photos of her kitchen -- she was inspired by ours and shared this before photo (I think our kitchen had that some wallpaper when I was a kid!):
The after is so dramatic -- just gorgeous!:
Can you believe that floor is tile? I've seen this stuff before but never seen it look quite so real. That's amazing. Of course I love her light gray planked backsplash, pretty cabinets, beautiful vent hood and those lights...she knocked this room out of the park!
I loved this area with the long breakfast bar as well, what a great idea:
I can't get over those floors! Thank you for sharing these Mary!
Holly in Washington shared this wall of built ins that ours inspired:
Her's was a family affair too -- her father and brother-in-law helped out. I LOVE that she incorporated a desk into this wall!
Kate was inspired by our built ins as well and look what they created!:
Look at all that custom storage! Love! This one has two desks -- the combination of function and form always makes me happy.
Michael in Arizona sent me photos of his awesome built in project too. They had this niche that so many newer homes have:
Those are difficult to fill up sometimes, right? Well just look what he created in that area!:
Doesn't it look like it was always supposed to be there? He did an amazing job on this, I'm so impressed.
Stephen and Samantha had a long wall in their dining area that was a perfect spot for a wall of bookcases:
See how well these work with a table? I always say we could easily add a dining table back into our library and it would look lovely.
And last but not least, Stacey sent me the before of her living room:
And the gorgeous after!:
She hadn't had time to decorate them just yet when she sent the photo but goodness it is so warm and cozy even without accessories and books -- I love this room!
Aren't these awesome? You all blow me away with what you create! I am so honored that I've inspired so many of you. It's a pretty amazing thing. If you've tackled a project that was inspired in part by something I've shared, I would LOVE to see it. Send me pics and I'll share them here sometime in the future.

Have a great weekend my friends!
