The latest and greatest before and after projects!

Hello there! Sorry for the silence here last week. I was out of town for a fun event and didn't get a chance to schedule posts before I left. I can't wait to share more about my trip! I was asked to join in as a designer at this year's Lazboy Design Dash in High Point, NC. There's so much to tell you and fun stuff in store but for now I can only share a little peek at my finished room:

I'll be able to share more in a couple weeks! It was such a blast and I'm so glad I did it. 

Now it's time for another before and after shindig. I forgot to put one up last month so I'm excited to see what you've been up to! For those of you who are new around here, this is a link up where bloggers can share their recent before and after projects. If you're not a blogger, it's just tons of decor and DIY inspiration all in one spot! 

First, as always, I like to share some of my favorites from the last link up. And as always, I was super impressed with all of the talent out there. Blogs are the BEST!

Tricia's built in window bed had me immediately. How COOL is this?? 

The lights, the wood wall with the white dressers...I love every bit. I'd gladly sleep there!

Jaime knocked it out of the part yet again with this stunning chair upholstery makeover

So beautiful! You have to see how they started out to truly appreciate this transformation. 

Jenna created such a pretty and soothing nursery for her baby boy:

There are so many beautiful little touches in this room, be sure to check them out. 

Angela puts most IKEA Rast makeovers to shame with this one: 

We have similar IKEA dressers in our master and I'm planning a project like this. I'm happy to see how beautiful they look! :) 

Stephanie's white and blue bathroom makeover turned out so well -- all the details make this space:

This layout is so similar to our bathroom I'm working on! (More on that this week!)

I love how Breann took an empty space under the stairs and created a built in dog crate

Brilliant! I love making use of little spaces like this! 

And finally, this is such a simple idea to organize keepsakes and papers for all the kids:

Denise shares how she keeps them organized at that link. I find the simplest solution is usually the best one.

There you go! Now I can't wait to see what you've been up to over the past two months! You can link up below and if you'd like to be considered for next month's round up you can either copy and paste this code into your post or just right click the image to save:
