April Before and After Party!

Hey hey! Happy April to ya! It’s time for another before and after link up, no foolin’. ;)

I seriously could not stop this time – there were SO MANY awesome projects/rooms linked up last month. It was so hard to narrow it down to a few for this post.

I’m so impressed with you all, for real.

Laura’s breakfast room had me swooning – it’s just gorgeous:

I love the switched things up – this space use to be their family room, but they found this works better. It’s your house – do what you want!

Jenny and her family have moved in to a new house, but she reminisced about her old family room:

green blue rug

I LOVE that rug, so pretty!

I’m also loving Heather’s guest room makeover and that dark blue accent wall:

I need some guests to plan a visit so I can get motivated to work our guest room!!

Shannon reorganized her linen closet without spending any cash and it turned out so pretty!:

She DIY’d those labels too – so cute!

I love the pretty aqua blue color in Gwen’s family room, and all of the color throughout:

There were so many awesome DIY projects too, and these two rolling cart projects caught my eye – first, Julie’s rolling shoe storage:

GAH. That is the way to a woman’s heart, I tell you what. Hiding the shoes is a wonderful thing.

And Jacque turned wine crates into rolling storage as well:

Brilliant! Both are so functional and pretty!

There were some beautiful kitchen projects last month as well, like Jena’s new DIY’d kitchen:

white kitchen cabinets

Love the pops of green, it is a lovely space!

Emily’s kitchen looks great too:

I really love her new countertops! (Can you believe they aren’t granite?)

And finally (I could have kept going, believe me!), I loved Megan’s cute and organized laundry room redo:

Laundry Room Makeover

SO fun! That laundry caddy had me giggling. I may have to steal that.

See? So many awesome projects!! Of course, if you’d like to pin these projects, please do so from their sites.
