April ‘15 Before and After!

I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend! Ours was filled with basketball – we got to enjoy a lot of the NCAA (and Pacers) festivities going on in Indy. It was a blast!
I’m currently working on a project in the kitchen and am pretty sure it’s going to work out…I’m hoping. I’m SO excited about it. But today I’m kicking off the before and after link up by sharing some of the awesome projects from last month’s party. Yet again, you guys did not disappoint! 
There were so many before and after room reveals so I focused on those this month. Heather’s gorgeous dining room was one of them:
bright and colorful dining room Just lovely! They went through a lot of work to get it to this point but I’m guessing it was worth it. :)
Kathy created a dining room where there wasn’t one by adding built ins and a chandelier (and a table, duh):
hale navy walls white trim
This room is a stunner – it looks like the walls are black but it’s really a navy blue color. Love all of the details and the decor!
Let’s continue the gorgeous dining rooms shall we? My friend Carolyn’s room is beautiful anyway, but she added a little something in the form of art:
wallpaper as art
She fell in love with the hand painted silk wallpaper but the cost for a room let along a wall was too much. So she went with smaller pieces and made them into art instead – which is a great reminder that pretty much anything can become art!
Sage shared her living room makeover and my favorite part is that gallery wall:
IKEA sectional with cover
She got that sectional for a steal and then updated it to fit their tastes. Love the clean lines of it!
I LOVE Joan’s pallet wood wall in her bedroom:
wood pallet wall in gray tones
Wood walls make a space feel so warm and cozy, I will never tire of them. She gives great instructions in that post!
You KNOW I love Mandie’s new wall of bookcases! Look at all of that storage!:

Love how they staggered the shelves a bit instead of having the uniform across. And that blue color with the white built ins is so pretty.
And finally, (I had to stop at some point), there were quite a few beautiful kitchen renovations shared last month. I’m all about the kitchen right now so I had to show you a couple of them.
Jamie’s kitchen turned out beautifully! I love the warm wood island:

It’s so bright and pretty!
And Kathy shares their kitchen renovation from start to finish:
warm white kitchenI love how they made an effort to make this white kitchen feel warm and cozy – that’s my goal too. I think they did a fantastic job! 
OK! Now it’s time to see what you’ve been up to last month! If you’d like to be considered for the round up in May, please include a link to this post or this code in your post:
