Awesome before and after projects (and link up your own!)

Hello all! Guess what?! It's the first Monday of the month and I remembered that it's the day of the Before and After Link Up! I haven't been great at getting this up on time the past few nine months so this is a big deal for me. I'm getting old. ;)

As always, I show off some of the awesome projects linked up from last month first. I was blown away by April's pretty kitchen makeover!:

SO lovely! I love all of her little details in this space -- those lights and the chairs are my favorites.

If you are considering a kitchen makeover but the cost of new countertops is too much, you need to check out Jennifer's post on how to build your own laminate counters:

Laminate has come such a long way! Doesn't that look like soap stone? She shares a great tutorial on how to do this project -- it's a fraction of the cost of buying them ready-made. 

Jenny shared a couple more awesome kitchen makeovers -- if you remember she's the one who came over and taught me how to paint our kitchen cabinets like a pro. She has been busy painting oak cabinets left and right since then!:

I LOVE these dark gray cabinets with the pretty white backsplash! 

Megan showed how they built a DIY countertop over their front loaders in the laundry room:

I know many want to do the same and she shares every step of the process. What a great, spacious spot to stand and fold clothes!

Samantha shared her home dressed up for fall and her dining room is such a pretty space!:

Becca's sunroom is gorgeous -- they added a little something to this space that added to the character even more:

Oh man, I want to get cozy on that sofa and read for hours! This is such a peaceful room.
