February Before and After!

Wow wow WOW, you all linked up so many AWESOME projects at the Before and After Party last month. I was seriously so inspired. It’s time for another party today, but first we need to look back at a few of those projects!

Roeshel knocked this out. of. the. park. – her wood and pipe industrial pantry is just so GOOD:

wood and pipe shelving

I love the walls, the rug, the lights (!) and of course the shelving. Just fantastic. See more of the transformation here.

I always have to share a kitchen redo, right? Leah’s kitchen turned out so beautifully:

painted cabinets

And the changes were really fairly simple ones – paint and a backsplash are the biggies. Both of those made a big difference!

I’m pretty sure Tiffany’s guest room is now the prettiest I’ve ever seen:

light green bedroom

I love that she went bold with the graphic wall – it works so well with the other green touches throughout the room. Just lovely. I’d stay over any night! :)

I know this fireplace has been a thorn in Jenny’s side and I’m so excited that she’s done and it turned out so well:

stacked stone fireplace

She installed that stone by herself, I’m so impressed! It looks like it should have always been there, love it.

Talk about impressed – Michelle shares their DIY farmhouse table plans here:

Farmhouse Table plans

Love the white (chunky!) legs and that tabletop. So well done.

Here’s another gorgeous table – Jacqui sanded down the top of her old one to work with her new chairs and it all came together so beautifully:

Love that natural wood, it’s hot right now and I don’t see it going anywhere soon.

Hayley made some simple changes in her bathroom that made a HUGE difference:

simple bathroom updates

You have to check out the before to see how far it’s come.

And finally, but certainly not least, Cheryl shared an absolutely gorgeous room makeover:

stone fireplace to ceiling

So many beautiful details, you have to go over to see it all. My favorites are the fireplace and the gorgeous dresser under the television. Love.

OK, beautiful, right? I’m in awe, as always! Now it’s time to see what you’ve been up to! If you’d like to be considered for next month’s round up, please link back or you can add this code to your post:

  25. So much talent and so much to inspire. Thanks for sharing. I'm a thriftier too and usually add thrift store finds to my designs for my clients. My home has totally been decorated by thrift store finds and it makes it extremely interesting and looks "collected" not "decorated".
